Valentine's Day-Through the Years

Valentine's Day circa 1991

Popular, AND modest too!

Valentine's Day 2006: I had no boyfriend and no special Valentines Day plans...It was just a typical day in the life of me! I stopped into a few shops on 5th avenue after work...As I was walking home, a guy was stumbling towards me from the other direction. It definitely looked like he was drunk. As he passed by me, he reached out his hand (which apparently had a bottle of some sort of hard liquor in it) and dumped the liquor over my head!! I was shocked and upset...I screamed out to him that he was an A$$hole, and before I knew it, he was gone. I walked all the way home crying w/ crunchy liquor soaked hair in the freezing cold (in hindsight, this might have been one of those times where splurging on a cab would have been a good idea)...WORST VALENTINES DAY EVER!! How come crazy things like this only happen to me?

Valentine's Day 2011: I arrive in sunny Melbourne! One of my faaaavorite cities in the whole wide world (sorry New York!). Happy Valentine's Day to me!!! Which leads me to the bad news: Since I will be in Australia for a few weeks, I might not be so good about updating my blog. I will try my hardest, but I might be too busy eating Tim Tams and frolicking on the beach. Don't worry, I'll be back before you know it!


  1. i can't believe that story (and how many times have i left that comment already?)!

  2. That 2006 story, how come I don't remember it!?! I'll miss your blog while you're gone, but I'm glad we got a change to speak before your trip. You are inspiring me to frolic on the beach soon.

  3. Sorry, Sammy, but one of my all time favorites!! Have an awesome, awesome trip - can't wait to hear all about it!!!!

  4. I cannot believe you got liquor dumped on your head... it's sad... but it totally cracks me up... hahaha.
