Aaaahhhh. February - the month of love. XOXOXOXO. Showing people that you care takes many different forms. Some people say it best with words. Others say it with flowers or gifts. All of those things can be beautiful expressions of feeling. Hey - I am a girl... I have no problems with a bouquet or a pretty bauble. And of course, like everyone else I need to hear the words once in a while.
I believe that the means of expression has to fit the nature of the person giving it. There are two things about myself that I hold to be true: 1) I am a practical person at heart (I know this may surprise some, but at the base of almost every decision I make there is usually some practicality-based logic at the heart of it all); and 2) a person's time is their most valuable asset. As a result, when I want to express my care or appreciation for someone, I find that I tend to lean toward things that reflect these two things.
So this V-Day, instead of buying flowers or gifts, I said it with food. In my world FOOD = LOVE. Food nurtures and sustains the body; time and thought are required to prepare food. If time is precious, then gift of something that requires time is like giving a piece of yourself. I know it's a little goofy - but its "Cher logic". (OOOHHH, I just made an "IF,THEN" statement and used the word logic in the same sentence, I feel smartical).
In other news of note, Union won both their home games this weekend - bringing their national ranking up to #15 (2nd in ECAC). Two more games this coming weekend before play-offs.
That's all she wrote for tonight!
