Valentine’s Day Thoughts

I came across this ad in one of those free daily papers the other day :

“Plan to be spontaneous this Valentine’s Day. Come and get a payday advance and treat your loved one to something truly special “

Now that’s ripping your pocket off with some usurious interest rates – isn’t it ? 😯 What do these folks charge you, 20 % of the amount or even more ? It is good news that in 2009 this province declared Feb 15 as Family Day, an official holiday. Those who get paid on the 15th of Feb will get their salaries earlier, hopefully early enough to celebrate Valentine’s with a bang πŸ™‚ This new holiday declaration extends Valentine’s into a family celebration more so if it falls on a long weekend. That’s swell. For those without children, Valentine’s will be a 2 day affair πŸ˜‰ Valentine’s is one day when lovers reflect on their relationship and impress one another with cool gifts. Others simply go with the flow and celebrate the day with a nice dinner or a date to a movie, play or a concert. Incidentally, we had our pre-Valentine celebration to a Mariah Carey concert last Tuesday. Dang, Mariah showed up almost 2 hours late – I’ll blog about this later 😦 No elaborate plans for Valentine’s this time except for a dinner with the wifey and the daughter and a short trip up north to enjoy the long weekend. We’d be cruising the malls for a bit too so I won’t be surprised if we pick up something dandy for each of us 😎

Here’s some cool Valentine’s jokes from my jokes folder πŸ™‚



My boyfriend and I met online and we’d been dating for over a year. I introduced Hans to my uncle, who was fascinated by the fact that we met over the Internet. He asked Hans what kind of line he had used to pick me up. Ever the geek, Hans naively replied, “I just used a regular 56K modem.” πŸ˜†



There once was an old couple who had been married for thirty years. Every morning the old boy would wake up and give off an enormous fart, much to his long suffering wife’s annoyance. “You’ll fart your guts out one of these days,” she always complained. After a particularly bad week the wife decided to have her revenge and got up early, placing some turkey giblets in the bed next to the old boy’s arse. While making breakfast downstairs she heard his usual morning fart reverberate through the floorboards followed by a scream. Twenty minutes later a rather shaken man came downstairs. “You was right all along Missus,” the old man says, “I finally did fart my guts out, but by the grace of God, and these two fingers, I managed to push ’em back in!” :mrgreen:


A woman standing nude in front of a mirror says to her husband: ‘I look horrible, I feel fat and ugly, pay me a compliment.’ He replies, ‘Your eyesight is perfect.’ πŸ™‚

A Veggie Tale

Cabbage always has a heart;
Green beans string along.
You’re such a Tomato,
Will you Peas to me belong?

You’ve been the Apple of my eye,
You know how much I care;
So Lettuce get together,
We’d make a perfect Pear.

Now, something’s sure to Turnip,
To prove you can’t be Beet;
So, if you Carrot all for me
Let’s let our Tulips meet.

Don’t Squash my hopes and dreams now,
Bee my Honey, dear;
Or tears will fill Potato’s eyes,
While Sweet Corn lends an ear.

I’ll Cauliflower shop and say
Your dreams are Parsley mine.
I’ll work and share my Celery, πŸ™‚
So be my valentine.


I have never known a love like this,
before in my life,
Tears can turn into bliss,
With only a kiss, only a kiss.

And I have never held a girl like you,
So close in my arms,
You appeared in my world,
And offered me hope for one more time

I’ve never been so afraid,
That love is just a dream,
And Darlin I’ll awake and you’ll be gone,
Never believe that I could love somebody,
Oh I could love somebody, someone like you,
Oh I could love somebody
Oh, I could love somebody, someone like you.

You’re too early for the sun,
Too early for the moon,
Too early for the rain,
Coming down on me,
You make me feel so close to home,
So far away, like nowhere else I’ve never been.

You’re too early for the stars,
Too early for the wind,
Too early for my heart,
To open up again,

But when I see you I just laugh,
And I believe,
I’m right where I’m supposed to be.

Darn, the video clip only played one stanza but then again, the song is about 8 minutes long and you might get bored πŸ˜† Okay, the song isn’t one of those you’d hear in the beer garden jukeboxes outside cockfight stadiums back in good old Pinas but it if I’m allowed to keep only 1 playlist of 10 songs in my MP3 player, this song would be one of them πŸ˜‰ In my book the song tells a story worthy to be celebrated this heart’s day. I say go ahead and get a payday loan or pawn your expensive wrist watch and go and have a blast with your special someone this Valentines Day πŸ˜†

  2. me, too! was laughing aloud. πŸ˜€ love much the wife’s revenge.

    Valentine’s day, like Christmas, is so commercialized. πŸ™‚ it’s better to celebrate the day simply.

    Happy Valentine’s day to you!

    • so true, over-commercialized indeed. Same here, we celebrated the day with a nice buffet dinner with my daughter πŸ™‚

      Same to you and Papsie πŸ˜‰

  3. I got a kick on that old “fart”!

    Happy Valentine to you and your family!

  4. When I checked the link, these Payday people also give out credit cards. I’m curious how much interest rate they are charging.

    Very funny jokes. I liked the perfect eyesight one hehe πŸ™‚

    8 minutes is pretty long for a song but it’s nice, both lyrics and tune. Have a nice long weekend !

      8 minutes is darn long πŸ™‚ Hey, happy heart’s day and enjoy the rest of the long weekend !

  5. Nice Valentine’s joke bro and Happy Valentine’s to you. We just stay home with my wife and kids, it was just as eventful that way.

  6. Happy Valentine’s Day !

  7. I’ve been to only one Valentine’s Day date in my whole life, and that was with my ex-wife when we were still dating. It ain’t a bad thing though, not being able to celebrate this mushy, over-commercialized day because traffic can be murder during that time as all the fine dining places are packed full.

    Love those jokes, especially the wife’s revenge.

    Happy Chinese New year, bro.

    • yikes, same here… restaurants are darn full ! In Pinas nt only restaurants but motels as well haha πŸ™‚

      Yes, I’m scoring some glorious and expensive moon cakes at the Chinese mall tomorrow ( largest Asian indoor shopping mall in North America) πŸ˜‰ How can I possibly go wrong with my search πŸ˜‰

      happy heart’s day and Happy new year too. Our dept will celebrate new year at a real nice dimsum house on Tuesday lunch ( Monday being a holiday here) πŸ™‚

    My wife and I celebrated Valentine’s Day beneath the Eiffel Tower. Isn’t it romantic? πŸ˜€

      Nonetheless, happy hearts day to you and the missus πŸ™‚

    Nice jokes. At least men are sane not to be asking their wives or gf’s “honey, you think my rear is getting bigger”?? or words to that effect, hehe….

    Wifey gave me a box of my fav Sees Chocolate candies and as usual didn’t gave her anything, but she knows I’m still here with her till the end, wuhuhuhu…..


    • Same to you bro.

      LOL.. I men’s bums disappear while women’s are getting bigger as they grow older hehe πŸ™‚

      Hey. you’re bad πŸ˜† Oh well, I know you’re giving her way more than that πŸ˜‰ Hope you had fun this long weekend 😎
