Procrastinate on This! [Valentine’s Day Edition]

So I’m coming out from underneath a crushing February 15th deadline (seriously, who contractually obligates somebody to turn in a project on the day after Valentine’s Day — and what sucker writer agrees to it??? Me, that’s who. [sad face]), to bring you this special, extra lurvely batch of procrastination.

Though, seriously, as much as I complain about writing, on this day I’m reminded that writing is my forever love, and I’m exceedingly lucky to be able to do what I forever love for a living. So a big smoocharoo going out today to my very first love.

2. Not feeling flowery enough today? Here are some flower-inspired scents, make-ups, and bath stuff. [xoJane]

3. “One romantic guy named Travis Hines self-published a book to ask for his girlfriend’s hand in marriage. The book told their personal story and he gave it to her as a gift out on a date.” [GalleyCat]

4. The most amusing aspect of this Amazon listing for a $1500 (discounted from $2500!) 55 gallon barrel of Passion Natural Water-Based Lubricant are the customer reviews. If you’re looking to laugh, click on the link. [Amazon]

5. This anti-Valentine’s day, James Altucher post on “What To Do When She Leaves You” is a handy one to keep around ALL YEAR. [The Altucher Confidential]

6. History-makin interracial couple alert: THE LOVING STORY documentary airs tonight on HBO at 9PM EST! Woo-hoo! [Honeysmoke]

7. This video makes me want to buy a red Field Note Book, just because you’ve got to respect a guy that can both make and monetize a really sweet, really nerdy Valentine. [LikeCool]
