Since this Friday is Valentine's Day, I thought it appropriate to do a ten things Tuesday for it.
Welcome to Me style, that is.
Lots of things come to mind when I hear the word valentine.
That's the topic of this week's Ten Things Tuesday.
1. Bullet for my Valentine
It's a band, if you have not heard of them.
Kevin Bacon played Valentine in the awesome movie Tremors.
Remember drawing your own valentine? Cutting out a heart or drawing one with an arrow sticking out and putting Be Mine on it?
4. The Valentine's Day Massacre
In 1929, seven mobsters were killed by the Capone syndicate.
5. Horror movie
In 2001, there was a movie called Valentine. Five women are stalked as they get ready for Valentine's Day.
The origins of Valentine's Day come from a saint that was arrested for performing weddings for soldiers and other such heinous crimes. Allegedly, he gave a card to the jailer's daughter that he signed "your valentine".
7. The bumpy Z
Also known as the "open hearts collection by Jane Seymour". Kay Jewelers sells them and you always see the ads this time of year. I know she says that you leave your heart open so love always finds its way in. Yeah, yeah, yeah- it looks like a bumpy z to me.
Those big heart shaped boxes filled with an assortment of chocolate filled things. I'll take the truffle and creme filled and you can have the rest. Oh, don't forget caramel. Yum.
Specifically red roses. Because they are popular and it is the middle of winter, you pay a lot more to get roses right now. I'd rather get lilies.
10. It's in Nebraska
The town is located in north central Nebraska. They have a little over 2,500 people so it's a nice little town.
Have a great Tuesday!
