Smitten by You

So on Lazy Explorers, Chloe gave out blog Valentine’s and I just fell in love with the whole idea. So I decided to do the same.

My post for last Valentine’s was a bit…well cynical. So I thought I would be a bit more loving this year. I also made a button that you can put on your side bar for the duration of the month. If you click the one on my sidebar it will take you to Chloe’s entry.


I read a ton of blogs that are amazing, but here are a few blogs that I am totally smitten with. Anyone can join in on the love though so feel free to use my heart or create your own. 😀

Mija- Mija’s Malice
Melanie- Adorability
Yishi- My Dear Chopsticks
Robin- Carolina Robin

 So continuing on with the whole love theme, I’ve been visiting my family, we came to see how dad was doing since his accident. He apparently tore something in his shoulder and has an appointment on Monday to see a doctor. He will have to have surgery and they are just going over when it will be done. He will be out of work for awhile and needs something to keep him busy. He wants some new games to play while he is out of work. Speaking of games, I found Guilty Gear XX1 Core Plus for 7 bucks. And Jody bought Soul Calibur 5 and lets just say they are both wonderful. But we, meaning my sisters and I…plus Jody, shouldn’t be playing fighting games…against each other anyway. Kat kept winning and it annoyed us all. (Sore losers) Of course she sucks at Guilty Gear so that’s all that matters. While at Hastings I saw this Star Wars bag, sadly it was ruined. The creators defiled it by adding this sparky pink crap around it. And its a shame too, because I loved this style of bag, its sort of like a bowling bag shape. I love bags like this and I’ve been wanting one for a while and this one would have been perfect if it wasn’t sparkly and pink. I don’t wear pink and this wasn’t even a pretty pink. You can’t really see it in this picture, but believe me it was just bad. If only it was blue or black, then it would’ve been fine. But no. Sorry to those that like the color pink. Its not an ugly color it just doesn’t match my personality. I’m not a pink person. I keep looking at the awesome picture and it makes me sad. Oh well, I have my awesome Star Wars messenger bag and now my clutch so I shouldn’t be too bummed about it. It’s just a bag. I know I know. Moving on, I watched the first two Alien movies with the weirdos and I have to admit for the 80’s the alien costumes and puppets were pretty awesome. I mean when they showed the Queen Alien, I was impressed. Pretty good introduction for an alien. So now we are on a quest to buy the last two movies of the saga. We also watched Quarantine 2, because we are a fan of zombies and this is pretty close to zombies. Plus we watched the Spanish version of the first movie and it we just needed something to watch. 😛 So that’s pretty much all the exciting bits of this weekend. I have two papers to write and I haven’t even started. And look at the time, I’m gonna have to stay up late just to finish it. -.- Good night all.

So tell me, what’s your view on Valentine’s Day? Hate it? love it?…Endure it? Let me know.

    I hope your dad’s surgery goes well! I’m sorry to hear about the accident, but I’m glad to hear that he’s doing ok!

    I’m a sore loser when it comes to fighting games, haha. My husband and I can’t play them together because I get really annoyed that he always wins.

    I love the image on that Star Wars bag, but I agree with you on the pink! I really think black would have looked a lot nicer. The pink doesn’t seem to go with it at all. What a shame =/

    I think the “totally smitten” idea is great. I usually celebrate Valentine’s Day, but we don’t make a huge deal out of it. I think something like celebrating an anniversary is more meaningful 🙂

    @Cat, Thank you. He’s a tough guy. 😀
    I love playing fighting games, I’m not great at it. But I love it. And I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks the pink on the bag ruins it. -.- I’m still hoping that one day I find a bag similar to it without the pink.

    Yeah I never hated Valentine’s Day, but I never declared it an important day either. Even when I was in a relationship, I thought of it as an ordinary day.

    Awwww thanks for putting my blog in this post! Does this count as my first award? ^^

    Again, I hope your dad is OK ~ but if he wants to play games, then…he probably will be…fingers crossed! And good choices ~ LOVE Soul Calibur! What’s your favourite character? I played it for the whole of my second year at uni and well…let’s just say my grades suffered as a result…!

    Haha, yeah, that bag is definitely ruined. I always hated the colour pink too, but recently, have grudgingly allowed it to appear in my wardrobe. It was definitely a massive step though.

    @Yishi, XD If you want it to. Then by all means. 3
    And thanks again. He already started playing COD, and my favorite character in five would have to be Xiba. But I was really excited to play Ezio, but I didn’t like his fighting style. lol

    Bits of pink is not a bad thing, so don’t feel ashamed if it appears in your wardrobe. lol

    Thank you for including me! 🙂

    I have mixed feelings about Valentine’s Day. My husband thinks there is no harm in people using it as an opportunity to show a bit of extra appreciation and love for someone special – and I agree. At the same time, I dislike it for the same reason that I dislike Thanksgiving, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day. It’s another holiday for which you are expected to do something that you should be doing anyway – showing that you appreciate/are thankful for people and blessings in your life. I would rather get a thoughtful card or phone call because someone just wanted to do it, not because of holiday obligations.

    @Robin,
    No problem. 😀
    Yeah I don’t think you have to go above and beyond to show someone you love them. A simple I love you or card will suffice.
    And you’re right, for most people its just an obligation.

    I’m indifferent toward Valentine’s Day. I’ve never had a problem with it, and I’ve been single for most of them in my dating life. I spend the day keeping track of the people who post cynical status updates about the day on facebook, and at the end of the night I deliver roses with friendship greetings on them to those people. Either that or I throw a giant party. Either way, I’ve always had fun on Valentine’s Day.

    Now that I have a boyfriend, we don’t really celebrate the holiday, because we think it’s stupid and commercialized. So I keep up with my roses tradition. 🙂

    @Tina,
    Yeah I never gave it a special meaning. It was just an excuse for me to pig out on chocolate. >.< And that is a sweet tradition. Very cute. 🙂

    Aww that you for the blog valentine!

    I do like Valentine’s Day. I view it as a holiday to celebrate the people you love, so I feel like you don’t necessarily need to have a significant other to celebrate it =p Unfortunately, the bf doesn’t like Valentine’s Day, so its not something the two of us celebrate very much haha

    @alex, Yeah he has taken over the Xbox. XD And thank you.
    Yeah when I had I boyfriend, we didn’t put any pressure to do something on Valentine’s. I think just spending the day with someone you love is good enough.
    Yeah I’m excited for the candy sales. :9
    Thanks for reading and commenting.
