Day of Love

I actually wanted to make a little cute, lovey dovey post with pictures and all but my computer is so darned slow! Seriously, a beautiful bouquet of roses on this day would make my day but what I really need is someone to fix my computer! I mean, I'm sitting here in front of my screen, literally watching the icons and text on my Internet Explorer page load, a process that took two minutes if not more.

You know when you download something big, like an mp3 or video or whatnot? Well, imagine just observing the whole loading process? That's the same feeling I get when I use this crappy PC of mine. I don't think I have a virus. Think I have to get a new computer. But I like this one though. It's ancient and makes a weird humming sound when it's on. Poor thing, it's not performing as well as I want it to.

Well, whatever. Today's Valentine's Day, a day to be extra sweet to the people you love. It's not, however, a day to pull out the religion card and say that you don't believe in Valentine's Day, a line that someone at my workplace said in a high and mighty manner. That's just plain tacky and dumb i.e. "If I buy my wife a bouquet on Valentine's, that'll mean I believe in St. Valentine and thus I'll be an automatic convert to Christianity." Puh-lease. Life's too short to be an emotionally stingy a-hole especially on such occasions. So, be thoughtful and sweet on Valentine's Day and onwards.

And last but not least:

Me: I was going to have this jumbled mix of sappy MP3s for my Valentine's Day post...
Friend: Whaddyou settle on then?
Me: Sade
Friend: That's cheesy
Me: It is not! You can never go wrong with Sade especially on Valentine's Day (rhyme alert!)! And plus, I think she transcends all contemporary musical eras so...

So, here you go. Happy Valentine's Day people :)
Sade - Your Love is King
Sade - Love is Stronger Than Pride
Sade - No Ordinary Love
Sade - Paradise
Sade - The Sweetest Taboo
Sade - Hang On To Your Love
Sade - Lover's Rock
Sade - Nothing Can Come Between Us
Sade - By Your Side
Sade - I Couldn't Love You More
