What A Pleasant Surprise

Thank you one and all for participating in my latest meme. First, it was awesome to see so many comments (I didn't expect that at all!) and the words you used to describe me made my day and dare I say, my entire weekend (honestly).

Speaking of dare, here are a small sampling of Valentine's Day Dares ripped from the pages of Vanity Fair (click here to read the rest and submit your own) I know it's a little early, but it is always a smart thing to plan ahead:

One-Point Dares

  • Tell your girlfriend that you’ve planned a romantic night in—and upon her arrival, start up a DVD marathon of Judy at Carnegie Hall, Liza with a “Z,” and Yentl.

Three-Point Dares

  • Stand outside the home of your beloved with a boom box and re-enact John Cusack’s arms-aloft “In Your Eyes” scene from Say Anything—only with the boom box playing “Movin’ On Up” from The Jeffersons.
  • Every time you see a couple kissing, lean into them and say lasciviously, “Hey, lemme get some of that.”
  • Using a vacuum cleaner with the floor-brush attachment removed, give yourself a conspicuous hickey. Then strut around the office saying “Who’s the man!” while shooting “double pistols” at colleagues with your index fingers.

Five-Point Dares

  • Ask your clergyman if he has plans for the evening, making air quotes around the word “plans” and thrusting your pelvis.
  • Stand outside the most romantic restaurant in town with your young children, holding up placards that say sinners and screaming, “Re-pent, for-ni-cay-tors!” at couples as they enter and exit the restaurant.
  • Feigning Canadianness, insist to your co-workers that February 13 is Canadian Valentine’s Day. On that day, present a knobby parsnip to an attractive colleague and say, “This is how we show our love up north.”
