So as you are probably well aware, Valentines Day is tomorrow. And as you could probably tell from my Bitches Love Teddy Bears post I’m not a big fan of the holiday.

Maybe it’s my distaste for the color pink (not all girls like pink, take note sporting equipment makers!), maybe it’s the generic cards and gifts, maybe because it’s a day of forced affection, maybe it’s that the cheesy factor is off the charts, or maybe it’s because I’m single and bitter. Who knows! Whatever the reason I don’t know why people like this day. I do know when you google Valentines Day you get this garbage. yuk.

Still, for all of you lovers out there I will attempt to keep things positive, soooooo….

Here are 10 things that make Valentines Day seem almost bearable…

10. Gifts…


…everyone likes to give and receive gifts.

9. An excuse to be sappy…


…and watch any chic flick you want. (yes, dudes secretly like these)

8. Hugs and Kisses…


or this…


…whatever best describes you and your significant other

7. Chocolate…


… it’s great for singles too!

6. Because the store aisles now look like this…

Thursday = Thor’s Day

Canvas, Comedy, Design Studio, graphic design, Learning, LeMonkey House, Posters


I discovered today that Thursday comes from the Old English Þunresdæg = “Thunor’s Day. Then you lose the -n- due to the influence of the Old Norse and get Þorsdagr which means = “Thor’s Day !

There is a lot of other boring information about origin and languages but let’s just skip that and get to what we should be doing…

We decided to take a little field trip and introduce our larger canvas posters to the neighborhood.

Somehow we stumbled into the skate park and made a few friends. Tim, John, and Solomon were more than obliging. They were such cool guys and to say they are free spirited is an understatement.

Here a few of the shots of the guys doing their thing… (and our posters look pretty awesome too)
