I missed Valentine’s Day. Again. Not that anything exceptional happened. I’m about as approachable as a cactus when it comes to romance. Actually, that’s a lie; the cactus has better chances.

Why is it that I’m always behind on my blog posts? Oh, because I’m a procrastinating black-belt and forgot I had a WordPress blog again.
