If your Valentine's Day sucks. Blame these guys.

I dislike Valentine's Day VD for several reasons.  Not only is it overrated and expensive but it perpetuates unrealistic notions of romance.  Don't even get me started on all the VD cliches.  I mean, shouldn't you show/tell your loved ones you care every day not just today.  Anyway...I digress.  This post has absolutely nothing to do with autism.  Today I just needed to keep it light. 

So ladies & gents, if you're having a sucky Valentine's - feel free to blame these guys:         

Daddy Warbucks: Disgustingly wealthy, single and he adopts an orphan.  He sings and dances and marries his secretary!  Not only did Daddy Warbucks ruin any girl with daddy issues, but also gave false hope to the single secretary looking for love.

Mike Brady: What is it about the single dad?  He's an architect who remarries a woman with 3 kids.  Not only that, but Carol is a stay at home and they have a housekeeper.  Mike never complains about anything.  Ever.   And in my Brady Bunch watching years, he never turned on the television to watch any kind of sport. 

Danny Zuko (Grease): The blue eyed bad boy.  With that voice and those moves.  Any girl would gladly haul all her cookies all the way to the beach for this guy.  Danny abandons the T-Birds and is willing to do anything to get his Sandy back. 

Tristan (Legends of the Fall): Um...it's Brad Pitt.   Need I say more?

Gilbert (What's Eating Gilbert Grape?): Johnny Depp.  Again.  Need I say more?  Me thinks not.     

Hawkeye (The Last of the Mohicans):  When Hawkeye (Daniel Day Lewis) tells Cora (Madeline Stowe) "You stay alive, no matter what occurs! I will find you. No matter how long it takes, no matter how far, I will find you."  And he's all sweaty, chest heaving with passion and she's all damsel in distress tough girl and with that music playing in the background...soooo dramatic.  

Johnny Castle (Dirty Dancing):  Another bad ass who can dance.  Seriously?  And that whole lake scene, lifting Baby up...then telling her dad off.  "Nobody puts Baby in a corner."  


Noah (The Notebook):  "If you're a bird I'm a bird." Aside from the fact that Noah is incredibly charming.  He builds a freaking HOUSE!  How can anyone not fall for Ryan Gosling.  But if you're not a fan of Ryan, I guarantee you will be after you see what Sunday Stillwell's did with him.  He can Hey Girl me anytime ;) 

Edward/Jacob: (Twilight)  All of it.  The books, the movies. The lines thrown around by these 2 have ruined Valentine's Day for millions.  I mean, really?  Who can top -"No measure of time will be long enough. But let's start with forever."  Who says this kind of sappy crap?  (I still swoon whenever he says it.  I watched Breaking Dawn twice this weekend.  Don't judge me.)     

But I gotta tell you, none of these guys can hold a candle to my guy. 

Yesterday, The Husband was off from work and sent me an unexpected text.  "I know how you like it.

And then he sent this picture with it:

And for me, there's nothing sexier than a man who knows what to do with a mop.  I swooned...
