Happy <3 Day!

Haha, for those of you who know me offline, in the real world, that is not a greeting thatsomeecards.jpg usually escapes my lips (or my fingers). But I’m trying not to be such a cynical V-day Scrooge (and I’ve gotten some cute and, uh, creative holiday wishes from the coworkers-and the S.O.), so here are a few less traditional, more palatable expressions of love and devotion. Only, not really, which is why I can stand them.

  • Send a cupcake on Facebook. It’s not as cheesy as a Valentine, not as fattening as a depression-chasing pastry. Orgive the naughty gift that keeps on giving-it’ll look good no matter how many virtual cupcakes you receive. For the financially challenged, Facebook is offering one of their usual $1 Valentine gifts for the low, low price of…nothing! Ah yes, nothing says “I love you” like a free Facebook balloon.
  • Heart someone on Twitter (someone like me who wants more followers). It’s cute; they can heart you back and tweet the world with your love. Send a Twitter Valentine Tweet by typing “@username <3″ (the web-geek heart symbol, of course). Very short and sweet, very internet.
  • Spread the sarcasm with SomeECards. The perfect solution to sappy, mushy-gushy, lovey-dovey, vomit-inducing Valentine’s Day cards. And eCards. ‘Cuz really? You’re not getting in my pants with a free internet greeting. At least a generic Hallmark card involves a modicum of effort.

UPDATE: Just saw this list of the meanest “love” songs today…some of my favorite tunes made the cut. Coincidence? I think not. Better luck next year Cupid.
