Dave!Today I had to drive into the neighboring "big city" of Wenatchee to run some errands. This immediately put me into a sour mood because the traffic in Wenatchee is notoriously bad. And, unlike a REAL big city, nobody seems to know how to drive in it. By the time I finally got back to work, my brain felt like it was melting from the stress. Until I opened my email.

I'm not really a big fan of VD, but it was nice to get a bunch of Valentine e-cards today. Something tells me I should return the favor, but I'm just too tired. Though I kind of like my Valentine Card to my readers from three years ago, so maybe that'll work...

Dave VD Greetings

Who doesn't totally love Hello Kitty?

In addition to being Valentine's Day, it's also Self Love Day... a holiday that Hilly-Sue came up with that's taken the blogosphere by storm (click here to read about it on her blog). I was going to participate, but Bad Monkey grossly misinterpreted the rules, so that kind of spoiled it for me...

Monkey Self Love

And, on that note, it's time for me to go pack a suitcase...

    See you soon! Drive carefully……

  2. Laurence says:

    Hello Kitty works ! 😉

    P.S. Here, all girls love Diddl ! 😀
    P.P.S. Happy St Valentine Day !

  3. Bad Monkey! Bad bad monkey!!

    I LOVE your humor.

  4. Göran says:

    Are you aware of that there is a Hello Kitty Mens gadgets/fashion line now? How much are you going to spend?

  5. kilax says:

    Will you be my Valentine? 🙂

    So… are we supposed to tell you what we like about Bad Monkey? Well, I for one, love how soft his monkey fur is. Mmm. Mmm. Mmm.

    (But I really like about you is that you’re so witty and clever. You always make me laugh!)

  6. Avitable says:

    Don’t you wish we just had jetpacks? Not everyone, but just a select few of us.

  7. Bec says:

    It’s like the clean, innocent side of Valentine’s Day vs the dirrty (yes, I did just spell it with 2 ‘r’s) side. Both equally as alluring!

  8. RW says:

    I don’t get the Hello Kitty thing. I try and I try but it just escapes me. So I guess, to answer the question… me?

  9. Wayne says:

    As my 5yr old says, “Happy Valemtimes day”

  10. Michelle says:

    Well I think you are a terrific writer, artist, and humorous to boot. So even if you cant follow the rules and request we say something nice about you……… we can still follow them.

    P.S. Bad monkey is tired of being blamed. He told me to tell you so.

  11. Hilly Sue says:

    Uh huh, suuuure it was “Bad Monkey” who misinterpreted “self-love”. 😉

  12. Iron Fist says:

    I hope you packed some kleenex for Bad Monkey.

  13. SJ says:

    I love how generous you are. You always give us free stuff. I like free stuff. Which reminds me, when the hell are the zombie shirts going to be back in stock?!?! I’m saving my certificate for one.

    I wear my lanyard every single day at work. Minus the penis salad button, of course.

  14. Trishk says:

    Come on, Wenatchee isn’t that bad. Well, except when the semi’s turn over on the bridge, or at rush hour when everyone is trying to get back to/from East Wenatchee, or when it’s Apple Blossom time..

    Never mind.

  15. That Hello Kitty card rocks socks! Happy Valentine’s Day! XOXOX

  16. Karl says:

    See, that’s what I thought self love day was about, but Hilly swore otherwise.

  17. Carol says:

    Dave, I just stumbled across your blog. Where have I been??? Was amused at your comment about “the big city” of Wenatchee and how bad the traffic is. Where do you live? Cashmere? Waterville”. Rock Island? Anyway, wait till you get to Seattle this week-end. Now that’s bad traffic. At least you’re going on a week-end so you won’t get into the working going rush-hour mess.

  18. Robin says:

    You always make me laugh…and Bad Monkey makes me cringe a bit…

  19. turnbaby says:

    I’m guessing there was flinging….there’s always flinging with the monkeys.

  20. bogup says:

    Hope you all, including our host Dave2, had a good St. Valentine’s Day, even BM. As for jetpacks, could they take you over the Cascade mountains?

  21. apricoco says:

    you should tell bad monkey he is going to blind if he keeps doing that. is that bad monkey’s “O” face?
