Geeks Need Love Too

I got email from the ThinkGeek Overlords today. In anticipation of Valentine’s Day, their website has a section devoted to “Geek Love”. Fun stuff. Check it out.

“We less than three you!” (Geek-speak for “We ❤ you!”)

The Mechanics of Love

Caitlin M. of Blue Dot Jewelry fame wanted to share one of her latest creations – a robot pendant with a heart-shaped twist, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Says Caitlin…

I really got into hearts this week. I’ve been wanting to make a robot forever, and it took a heart-shaped turn!

Just when you thought the badness of yesterday’s pun couldn’t be outdone…ta-da!

Here’s another heartwarming submission from Zenna L.

Yes…opposites do attract.

Heart-spotting Contest Entry

From fellow Vancouver Islander Tony B.:

Here is a shot of a very old heart on a large log at Stephenson Point in Nanaimo.

I, for one, wonder if AS + SF are still an item…

According to this old heart in an old log at Nanaimo's Stephenson Point, AS ♥s SF.

Eat your heart out!

Or just eat your heart – period – with this nifty jelly mould that I spotted yesterday at Livingstone & Cavell in Calgary. Fun!

True Love Burns Bright

Perfect for Valentine’s Day…beeswax candles just arrived at Plum Goods in Santa Barbara. Made by a small, solar-powered, 100% eco-friendly company, they smell delicious, cleanse the air as they burn and glow with the most beautiful light.

So says Plum Goods.

To me blew me away

“To me blew me away” is Google Translate’s take on “넌 내게 반했어” – the title of a South Korean youth melodrama called (in English) Heartstrings. (The correct translation of 넌 내게 반했어 is actually “You’ve Fallen for Me.”)

Wikipedia’s entry for this TV series topped the list when I Google-searched “heartstrings” yesterday.

After you admire the heart in the stylized title, click the image to see the music video for “Because I Miss You” by Jung Yong Hwa – vocalist and guitarist of a band called The Stupid and lead actor in the series, where he plays a university student majoring in Western Music.

The deer-in-the-headlights kiss at 2:00 of the video is priceless!

A Tug at the Heartstring

Sarah L.’s late-night surfing led her to Etsy.com, where she spotted this string of hearts by tascha – perfect for Valentine’s Day.

As we close the books on 2012 and ready ourselves for another year to come, the simple words in this timely submission from Darren L. are well worth bearing in mind:

Learn from yesterday. Live for today. Hope for tomorrow.

With heartfelt wishes for a joyful, heart-full 2013,

Stephen

My niece Janine and her partner posted this photo from Kafka’s Coffee & Tea in Vancouver, where they took a moment to snuggle and write in their journals while enjoying their vanilla lattes.
