Happy (?) Valentine’s Day

I think I’ll enjoy it more than this individual. At least, I have nice plans and a nicer dinner companion.

As an aside, I did attend a Lupercalia party some years back. No naked, pregnant women or men in goatskins (although togas and similar attire were specified on the invitation), but we did have an animal sacrifice. Actually, make that a pseudo-animal sacrifice. The hostess had a bakery provide a loaf of bread in the shape of an animal, with raspberry (I think) jam baked inside it.

As for anti-Valentine’s songs, how could she forget “Love Stinks,” “Thank God and Greyhound (You’re Gone)” and “How Can I Miss You (When You Won’t Go Away)?
