Here's the gun part: Mayors Against Illegal Guns is flying more than 100 gun violence survivors and family members of victims to Washington, D.C. to meet with their members of Congress next Tuesday and Wednesday.
More than 100 people whose lives have been changed forever by gun violence are going to be heard by Congress at a crucial moment.
Survivors and family members from mass shootings in Newtown, Aurora, Oak Creek, Tucson, and Virginia Tech. And those who have lived with the cost of the 33 Americans who are murdered with guns every day.
There's no one better to share the message that we need to fix our broken gun laws [and, just before a national day of love].
Now for the VD part. Nadia G, the hostess of the bitchinest kitchen, has this advice for a spectacular Valentine's Day: Contrary to popular belief, being single on Valentine’s Day will not lead to spontaneous combustion. Yes, you have to put up with couples sucking face left, right and center, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of this hallmark holiday.
Celebrate on February 15!
This one is a no-brainer. Not only should you hermit indoors to avoid the above average rate of desperate men scrambling around in public, but you’ll have the opportunity to buy up all the fancy chocolates you can handle – and at half-price at that!
Nadia's advice makes sense for long wedded folks like my Baby and me - celebrate on the 15th.
I was contemplating reservations at a couple of spiffy dining venues, but their VD menu specials were crapola compared to the regular menus which were intriguing; but you can't order from the regular menu if the restaurant is running a VD special.
I also noted that reservations at some really super duper dining spots were not hard to come by on the 15th. What, I ask you, could be more romantic than a dinner with your sweetie in a dining room that appears to have been reserved for just the two of you - just as you planned (wink, wink)?
So what if you get laid a day late!
