V-Day Ramblings

This weekend is looking like it's going to be pretty average, and that's just how I like it. Lee and I share a common indifference towards 'V Day' as a whole and I don't see why one would have to highlight that you love someone on a predetermined date when you remind them every day (collective 'Awwwwww' please...thanks). No seriously, I'm weird like that.

This indifference has escalated itself to such a level that tomorrow Lee will be going to work from 9-5. Her car is dead at the moment so I have to drop her off and fetch her later so at least we'll share that time together. To celebrate, I'm going to battle Zombies on my TV with my friend Adrian. Romantic isn’t it?

Normally we see our folks on the weekend, either that or we clean, but this Sunday we're planning to head off to 'The Cradle of Human Kind' to look at some old bones. I noticed last week that this place of origin is only 50km's or so from where we live so I quickly decided that we should go pay homage to my ancient ancestors. I've always loved history so this should be really awesome. If we actually end up going I'll be sure to take my camera with for documentation purposes.

PS: If any of my readers are anti-evolutionary evangelists you can go suck it. It doesn't matter what you say -adding up the estimated ages of the major bible figures from Adam onwards is NOT a credible way of calculating how old the earth is. Screw it, I'm writing a post on this next week. For now I'll leave you with a pearl of wisdom - God didn't put fossils on earth to test us, they're actually dinosaur bones.

PPS: I drew a picture on paint today. It's been in my head for a while. It's a bit small so you might have to click on it to see it better, that red thing on the bottom left is a battery. Please let me know if I'm totally lame.

PPPS: My soundtrack for the weekend is 2Unlimited – No Limit

Happy weekend everybody!

So funny that you bring up the anti-evolutionary evangelists -- In one of my classes the other day we got into a huge debate because our professor referred to the start of the earth as "The Big Bang" and you would have thought she had taken out a bible and lit it on fire -- people were all up in arms, claiming that God created the Earth and God made people and this and that... it was intense. Then again, I do go to school in the US South, right in the "Bible Belt". Everyone around here is religious, and I am not used to it!

Ooh I'm looking forward to that post!

I live in a country where like 98% population is Catholic and I've never heard anyone get fussy over Big bang.

And they teach Darwin in middle school.

My boyfriend is away for valentines day. It really is a croc of a day.

I would love to go and see the "cradle of humankind", it sounds fascinating.

Although, being a seamonkey myself, it is difficult for me to relate :)

Who cares what people think or say.

Of course, I'm ignorant when it comes to the Bible so what do I know?

Just have fun.

P.S. Thanks for making me look up the song on Youtube cause I was racking my brain for awhile forcing myself to remember how it went.
SOOO much better just hearing it!
Thanks for the reminder!

P.P.S. A personal favorite of mine is Dee-lite: Groove is in the heart.

Have a Happy V-Day.

I agree that V-day is a commercialised day cooked up by Hallmark to make money out of us, but I sure hope that seeing you didn't celebrate it you will buy Lee flowers on another day to prove your point ;-)
