... I thought there should also be a thread for the three of us.

That's it. I'm getting my husband roses.

Count me in. But Smoke, be sure your husband likes roses. I tried that, and they meant nothing to him (not your husband--mine). The most amazingly successful gift I've given him was a shiny, red power drill. He was like a kid with a toy gun, and carried it around for days. The trick is to give the person what they really want, even if it is cliched.

Big John would like the roses. The power drill he'd use once and leave it outside to rust.

Drilling holes in roses. Fun for the entire family!

Sounds like a 'Guns & Roses' cd would settle both problems.

You lot are all warped!

But that's my point, Smoke. Give 'em what they want. If your love loves roses, well lucky you!

My problem is, mine would want oatmeal. Sad, isn't it?

Romantic knowledge is masculine in its neglect of women's experience and its adoption of paradigms built on assumptions of competition and hierarchy. Sploofus has helped us focus on the issue of how romance is constructed and how to go about changing it to make it a more egalitarian activity. Note: it is not ROWOMANCE.

There is little point in working on a series of bandaid treatments which do little to alter the way in which romance is practised. We believe that, in order to achieve any lasting change in masculine romance, it is valuable to have developed a long term strategy which incorporates a structural analysis of the major forces operating to construct both romance and sensitivity in particular ways. In other words, take off your clothes, put on some wonderful smelling ode de toilet, jump his bones and see if he remembers it.

Haa haa Haa Haa Haaa!!!!

as if that's an unusual event?!?

Man alive!, I hope not...

Here's to everyone having everything (material or not) that they wish for this Valentine's it a power drill, a dozen roses, or a roll in the hay...

I have a power drill and a yard full of flowers, and I'm allergic to hay. I'm hoping there's some premium dark chocolate in my immediate future.

Some for each bountiful womanly hip.

I can't resist this Smoke. I'm sure you know "homage to my hips," by Lucille Clifton, but it's so great, it bears another read. So, for Valentine's Day:

homage to my hips

these hips are big hips
they need space to
move around in.
they don't fit into little
petty places. these hips
are free hips.
they don't like to be held back.
these hips have never been enslaved,
they go where they want to go
they do what they want to do.
these hips are mighty hips.
these hips are magic hips.
i have known them
to put a spell on a man and
spin him like a top!

--Lucille Clifton
