Well the season of love is fast approaching and Blicky has already been bitten by the love bug. Normally irascible and surly in nature he seems to be floating around the house as of late.
What are your Valentine's Day memories?
- Awkward exchanges of wilted, grotesquely-hued carnations in the corridors of your high school?
- The sinking realization that candy hearts now say "email me" and you remember when they said "Pray send thy amorous missive on illuminated palimpsest" (believe me, they were a lot bigger back then)?
- The worry that Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Brownie Batter didn't arrive in a heart shaped box, and technically speaking no one actually "gave" it to you?
- The time at boarding school when a really cute upperclassman took you to Hampton Beach and you tried to be cool and light his cigarette, but instead you lit the highly flammable front of his Flock of Seagulls hair style?
We at Blicky Kitty want to recapture Valentine's Day in it's purer and less expensive form. Remember the warm fuzzy pom pom people from kindergarden? Or the poorly-spelled second grade notes pointing out your obvious physical traits such as height and hairstyle or your funniness ("I like Lorall, she is tall and funny. That is why I like her.")? We are hosting a very special Valentine's Day event called a Karm-a-Thon. If you'd like to participate, just leave me a comment and link to this post if you wish.
Then, create a special Valentine's Day post where you give a really thoughtful, meaningful compliment to someone you know. It could be a loved one, acquaintance or friend. Also you could give a compliment to someone and write about it. Make a stranger's day by telling her she looks pretty in that outfit! Let someone know that you see something cool and special about them. Share the love!
Blicky will select a winner or winners to receive a custom Blicky Kitty or other Photoshop design of their choice!
"Mao aren't you just oversimplifying the deeper Buddhist meaning of karma?"
Yes Blicky but I think people will understand that my intentions are well-meaning.
"Mao aren't you just trying to distract yourself from your upcoming 40th birthday?"
Many thanks to Bill Austin from Blog of the Day Awards for the honor of naming Blicky Kitty among the Blog of the Day recipients for Saturday, January 24th! I am truly honored, and thank you to the person who nominated me!
