I could see early on that this Valentine’s Day was going to be just another day in our house. DH is kind of hit-and-miss on those things, and it’s a good thing I’m not a person who needs flowers and candy to know she is loved 🙂
So. I’m still not feeling very good, and I pretty much crashed when I got home. And, to my pleasure, found that the Hallmark Channel was running back-to-back Valentine romances last night 🙂
So I watched two. I know, some of you are thinking “Yeesh! Corny, predictable, formula stories.” Yes. Yes, they are. One of the predictable things is that someone, at some point, is going to say, “What are you doing here?”
But you know, that’s okay. I enjoy the movies because they have no bedroom scenes, no tonsil hockey, no face-sucking. They reflect the human experience, the desire for love, and all the pitfalls that can happen along the way.
I’d a lot rather watch that than to fill my head with rape, abuse of all sorts, drugs, violence, and dead bodies. I don’t want to watch anyone getting beaten up or tortured. I don’t want to watch horror and geysers of blood splatting my TV screen.
So I had a lovely time last night, nursing my sore throat, napping now and then, and getting saturated with schmaltz.
Oh, and I enjoyed the costumes at the masquerade ball, too 🙂
