Simply irresistible.

Two years ago, I found a stack of unused 1980s valentine cards at a thrift shop.  Most were silly, stupid and/or downright risque.  In short..


In the spirit of fun, I bought the cards and then offered them for free via this blog.  Somewhat surprisingly, people responded; a few very enthusiastically.  Just before Valentine’s Day 2008, I sat down and wrote out a bunch of cards.  Some with personal greetings, some with  “secret admirer,” all very sweet.  Although I’d never met ANY of these people (or their loved ones), it didn’t seem to matter.  I was acting as Cupid, spreading LOVE.  In retrospect, I think it was one of the craziest, most memorable Valentine’s stunts any of us ever pulled.  Last year (2009), I wanted to play Cupid, but my family & I were in the throes of a big move.  This year (2010), I’m Baaaaaack.

Here is the remaining selection.  Yes they are memorable.  Especially the one w/ the nerdy guy which reads (and I quote): “Because you let me play with your boobs.”  No I am not joking.

If you aren’t scared and running would like me to send a valentine to your special someone:

1. Click through the cards above.  If any of them speaks to you, call a doctor IMMEDIATELY.

2. Then leave a comment below.  I have 35 cards left.  You may want to pick a couple just to make sure you get something you like.  Or let ME pick for you.  Remember. I am a professional!  PS: Don’t forget your email!

3. I will contact you directly to make arrangements.  If I get 35 responses, EVERYONE WINS!  If I get no response, the (poor sad dejected) cards will return to the drawer from whence they came. Till next year.

4. Everybody have fun tonight.  Everybody Wang Chung tonight.

5. I’ll be taking comments now through February 10th 2010 (or until all cards are claimed).  Good luck! xo

  1. Valentines day comes around so quick! I love your idea of spreading the lurve! Go Dish Lady, Shoot that poison arrow….. to my heaaaaaaaart! ;o)

    1. July sounds lovely. I will pencil you in for painting the upstairs hallway. Oh! and tiling the vestibule. Also we are getting chickens, so make sure you bring your ‘feeding bibs’ – they like a cuddle after breakfast.. YYEEEHHAW!!

      PS: Got you down. One for ‘stomach.’


  2. i’ll bring my minions to paint and tile. i plan to be shopping and enjoying the sights of portland.

    as for chickens…what do you mean you’re ‘getting’ them? alive ones? what the hell do you plan to do with them and when did you turn into laura ingalls?

    1. Oh, o-kay. Please make sure Ant brings his extra pair of painting pants. And I will make sure John saves some particularly fun work for him. How is he w/ heights?

      As for the chickens. We’ve already got a whole flock of freeloading turkeys, might as well branch out. Right now I am absorbing “How to Raise Chickens.” Getting SOOO EXCITED!!

      1. Two words: avian flu

        Ant says no thanks on painting and is claiming vertigo as far as heights go. He is more interested in seeing the sights in town. Sorry pal, it’s up to bouncy and Hayden to get your chores done.

  3. for some reason when Nat mentioned her ss# etc …I got that song 867 fivvvvvvvve 309 in my brain! My husband will take any secret admirer card you choose to send…I am volunteering him 🙂

  4. Just stopping by to say hello. don’t need a card. I’m good. But I did have a great laugh over them. For some reason (maybe because they were so dreadful, lol!) they reminded me of the line in “Roxanne” where the stupid, cute guy asks Daryl Hannah if he can “fluff her pillows.” Cracks me up every time.

  5. how do i get a card??! theyre cute; i think so anyway lol. umm..ive already bought something for my husband..but i was hoping that maybe i could get one sent to my mom? even if it gets there late…at least she’ll have one from a “secret admirer..or an “old flame” anonamiously? i know i spelled that wrong…but do you think maybe you could help me?
