Obligatory Heart on Your Sleeve Day


I am not much for holidays, any holidays. Whether it be actual federal holidays, religious holidays, or the made-up consumer holidays manufactured to sell good and greeting cards. Oh wait, aren't they all made up holidays?

When it comes to this particular commercial holiday it brings a quote to mind and I find it most true:

"We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love." ~ Author Unknown

I love this quote because I firmly believe we are all a little weird and life is just better when you have someone of mutual weirdness to share it with. Now go hug your significant other in all their weirdness.

- Au Revoir

" I don't understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon." ~ Author Unknown


  1. Well put, I am in complete agreement. I show my appreciation to my partner all the time, and when I want, not because the shop tells me I am suppose to....

  2. Hmmm, how weird :)

    I'm not much for the Hallmark Holidays. That said, chocolate is always good.

  3. Great to be weird. Let's be Grinch about the holidays, and instead celebrate our weirdness every day.

  4. Aren't we all a little weird, and wouldn't the world be a dreadful place if there was no weirdness! :)

    I'll take the chocolates though...

  5. At least we all seem to be in agreement that weird is good. I wish more people in this world realized they actually are and didn't take life so seriously! Happy Weird Day #1. :)
