Saint Valentine (in Latin, Valentinus) is a widely recognized third century Roman saint commemorated on February 14 and associated since the High Middle Ages with a tradition of courtly love. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Valentine

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Courtly_love
Courtly love or domnei was a medieval European conception of nobly and chivalrously expressing love and admiration.[1] Generally, courtly love was secret and between members of the nobility.[2] It was also generally not practiced between husband and wife.[2][3]

Courtly love began in the ducal and princely courts of Aquitaine, Provence, Champagne, ducal Burgundy and the Norman Kingdom of Sicily[4] at the end of the eleventh century. In essence, courtly love was an experience between erotic desire and spiritual attainment that now seems contradictory as "a love at once illicit and morally elevating, passionate and disciplined, humiliating and exalting, human and transcendent".[5]

The term "courtly love" was first popularized by Gaston Paris in 1883, and has since come under a wide variety of definitions and uses, even being dismissed as nineteenth-century romantic fiction. Its interpretation, origins and influences continue to be a matter of critical debate.

I like the fact that courtly love "was also generally not practiced between husband and wife.[2][3"

We just exchange the everyday kind of love!

For example, early this morning i Picked up a couple of pink heart-shaped donuuts at Dunkin Donuts. They looked better than they tasted!

But of course it was the thought........

later in the article it says there is no historical evidence courtly love was ever even practiced....

maybe that is the problem with the donuts too. All in the head.

Better question - if you cartoon a cartoon character, is that blasphemy?

The gays have been persecuted far, far worse than the Jews. At least that's what I heard on Anderson cooper. Gays have been forced to wait in line for over 3 hours just to get into a nightclub. This is truly an atrocity for which there is no historical comparison.

Kind of ironic coming from someone who also flubbed live in front of 33 million people.

I wonder if Hughbe showers afterwords? Do you think he brings the goat in with him? Do goats have love handles?
