Happy (Early) Valentine’s Day!
Or something. Do you guys celebrate? I didn’t used to, but I guess I’m getting sappy in my old age. This year, I’m having dinner with a friend, and then hanging out at his place for drinks. Believe it or not, this is a step forward for me. I’m usually pretty “Bah Humbug” about the whole thing.
♠ Have you ever thought about The Addams Family as a feminist film? The Soapboxing Geek did, and the results are not only fascinating, they’re hilarious.
