The Obligatory V-Day Post.

It’s Valentine’s Day today, which doesn’t exactly mean much to me. TheBoy and I have never really been about celebrating the day. Though I did get him a Valentine’s Day present. I bought him this laptop skin because his laptop was naked and he loves Legend of Zelda. I just used Valentine’s Day as a justification. (By the way, the skin is gorgeous, a nice print quality. As skins go, it stretches a little more than the one I’d bought for mine through Gelaskins. So just be careful about the placement. Society6 is a cool vendor though- you can get…

I grew up with a dad who was a civilian working for the Navy. He worked in a couple different divisions, but all required travel (the first moreso than others). My dad would be somewhere and come back with a small…

Valentine’s Day

I fall a bit in the anti-Valentine’s Day camp. I don’t like being told that this one day a year should be the ultimate day of romance for The Boy and I. Usually, it just means that the day will blow up in our faces and be one of the worst of the year. So instead, we try to make our anniversary special (but not by going to any great lengths) and pepper the year with nights out together, doing things we enjoy. You have to admit, some people go a bit far. I worked with some women who set…
