"I quite admit that i adored you madly..."

Happy Valentine's Day, kiddywinks. I hope you're having a good one. I've spent the past four and a half hours of mine in the library, failing to write a very boring essay, but i'm not letting it get me down. I'm kind of embarrassed by how much i enjoy spending time in the library, especially when i'm not working on something i should be. It's just such a lovely, quiet, book-y place.
I'm also in a good mood because i have a valentine's day date for the first time in my life. Woop!
If you're not in the hallmark holiday spirit, have a look-see at these lovely A Softer World comics, they might make you smile. Remember to click to see them bigger.

And just to be a little more generic, here's my favourite sonnet. Say what you want about him, but that Shakespeare could write!

My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips' red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress when she walks treads on the ground.
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.
