Happy Valentines Day

It's kind of funny to write a post about this, but several people have asked me today if Joe and I have plans for Valentines. We mostly only joke about it, we're not a valentines couple. We don't even remember our own wedding anniversary most years. We celebrate our first date anniversary, and that's really it. BUT, for one of our first Valentines together it was a Saturday and I was down in Ann Arbor visiting Joe at school. When I arrived Joe had set-up a scavenger hunt around his dorm which resulted in chocolates, and a puzzle message/photo ala Amelie, and tickets to a show.

That show was the Vagina Monologues, and that folks is why the dude is awesome. It takes a special kind of fella to take you to a show all about vajay-jay. Coincidentally his roommate took a page from Joe’s notes and brought his girlfriend along too. Joe’s roommate and GF we’re both conservative Christian types who were saving it for marriage. Somewhere about the point where the lady on stage makes the audience chant “VAGINA, VAGINA, VAGINA!” we saw the roommate and lady-friend skate out looking super uncomfortable. In many towns this performance is put on for valentines as a fund raiser / awareness raiser for domestic violence against women. In the spirit of that I bring you my valentines gift.

The above image is the “Rocafella Diamond” sign. Created by Rocafella records, and meant I assume to signify wealth. The funny part is, this sign also appears in American Sign Language. It means vagina. No, really… really, really. That sign means vagina. So, with special thanks to Jay-Z.

I call this piece “Crazy vagina, magic vagina, smoky vagina, peek-a-boo vagina”.

Lastly, if you don’t have plans this Valentines might I suggest. Dancing on the Valentine, cause a good cause is always sexy.
