happy v day... boom



well it's the 14th of february. just another day for me, but in the world of bombers must be something special. a huge car bomb in beirut killed several people including lebanon's former prime minister. then abu sayyaf claimed responsibility for the v-day bomb in the phillipines. a series of 3 bombs killed many and wounded upwards of a 100 people. in bangladesh, v-day revelers were shocked by the three bombs that went off in dhaka. i mean i hate v-day as much as the next person, but what the hell is up with the bombings. well valentine's is not much fun in assam, where there is a strict curfew. and of course the whole thing is banned in saudi, so purveyors of hearts be aware. and of all things shiv sena is leading protest marches against the saint and his western culture (including calling it prostitution day and burning cards). not to be outdone, al-qaeda and pals are calling for jihad against valentines, because as we all know "human love is haram, al-hub is forbidden outside jihad" (you have to read their anti-love fatwas for yourself).

but if you were smart and invested in rose commodities, don't worry the price for roses is soaring (up some 90%), from pittsburgh to pakistan.

oh but how can i not at least leave you with some thing loverly (yes it is a word now). well here is a love poem emailed to me by a fellow compatriot.

The Ocean (Laura St. Martin)

the ocean is a strange
midnight lover
skinning dipping
when the beach patrol has left
she is a cool seduction
wrapping blue thunder
around slick brown shoulders
raising great foam-fringed arms
to a steel sky rushing over us sometimes
tumbling us to the shore
licking the rocks passionately
only to retreat into swirling indecision
tense always prancing and
the moon casts a furious gleam on the many-knuckled sea

p.s. another great one (much too long to post here) is maggie estep's "the stupid jerk i'm obsessed with", this one may be appropriate for some of my anonymous pals.
:edit: oh my dearies check out this wonderful anti-valentine's day site. pure genius.

favorite line:
cause I'm too busy
looking at the way the stupid jerk I'm obsessed with
has pants on that perfectly define his well-shaped ass
The Post has cute pic of V-day fun in Saudi, a renegade shop has a pink heart sign in front, oh the shame! on the plus side i recieved 53 valentines.

nobody loves me. especially the stupid jerk i'm obsessed with. (that sentence was ended with a preposition, but we'll let is pass because of poetic license laws)
