Do You Have The Post Valentine's Day Blues?

Do you have the post-Valentine's Day blues? Well just be thankful that it's not 1929 and that you are stuck working Valentine's in a certain little garage in Chicago, because then you'd really have something to be sad about. Other than telling you to "toughen up, you wussy!" Try reading these stories here or here. With the exception of that Cormac character's drivel, there's not a dog in the bunch. Good solid fiction with enough twists and turns to at least temporarily distract you from your love-related woes.

Oh, and you'll never win her heart with a stuffed emu. So you have no right to be sad because it's all your fault.

Slurp,

These are the kind of stories the soul needs every once in awhile, to balance things out. A literary Yin and Yang.

huh? you mean the world needs 50% criminals to stay balance? ;P

actually, i don't really see the need for horror / crime movies like the remake of "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre". really eroded the mind of our youths in our already sick world. :(

Slurp,

Not exactly, these stories are the fried foods in our lives. They are not necessarily healthy, but are good for variety and the occasional decadance.

"actually, i don't really see the need for horror / crime movies like the remake of "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre". really eroded the mind of our youths in our already sick world. :("

In this country, a movie like that would be just labeled as "horror" and I haven't seen the remake, nor have I seen the orignal. I have seen slasher films though and I don't watch as many as I did when I was younger.

If you raise your children properly and teach them the difference between right and wrong, as well as every action has a consequence and karma, then a movie like that shouldn't have an undue influence on them.
