Some girls want candy and flowers.

but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it's not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire...I am not some girls. Not that I am one of those bandwagon "Valentine Haters" (when did it become so cool/hip/in to diss Valentine's Day?). Nope, I love Valentine's Day just as much as the next sucker. But, one might say, I am a bit unconventional. This year, I told Scott, you know what I would like for Valentine's Day? I would like a red Swingline stapler, a la "Office Space". I am so tired of those crappy $3 staplers at work that go bust after 20 staples. I want a good stapler. And every time I use it, I will remember how much you love me, and that you care enough to have me use only the best office supplies. Not only did I get the requested red 747 Swingline stapler, I got a matching staple remover and some high quality kick ass staples (apparently they make all the difference...who knew?). I am loved, yes, I am. Since tomorrow is going to be an unromantic workday, we exchanged gifts tonight (I gave Scott some Diesel cologne) and then we watched Law & Order with Chris Noth (he was totally bad ass) and we ate our Love Potion #31 ice cream. Very romantic. Then Scott went grocery shopping and I did the laundry. And the world kept on spinnin'.

  1. Sweet! No one's ever cared enough to buy me top of the line office supplies. My brother's a keeper. Happy Valentine's Day!

    Nobody better take her stapler, or she'll burn the building down.

  3. Just found your blog by accident... I'd rather have office supplies or a book than flowers and candy myself... And yay for Chris Noth! It was great seeing him on L&O again.

  4. It's cool to cuss up Valentine's Day?
    Since when? I've been doing it from time. Does that make me cool now?
    Yeah I'm a bitter biatch...I've never received anything for V-Day.
    I probably never will.

    Bitter bitch, yes, but a BITTER BITCH WITH A JOB! TAKE THAT UP YOUR ASS, VALENTINE'S SCHMALENTINES!

  5. ^^ I wonder if that will change once you get 'drafted'

    and Kat, candy gets eaten, and flowers die, but staplers last forever.

  6. "I wonder if that will change once you get 'drafted'"

    Ughhh, what a horrible phrase. Really, now, is that the new 'in' thing to say?

    But, good for you, Kat, for preferring something that lasts. :)

  7. LOL AngelStar... 'drafted'. I've never heard it.

    I've turned it around and have adopted the phrase "equal opportunity employer".
    Me: "Are you an EOE?"
    Brotherman: "No."
    Me: BE GONE, THEN!!!

  10. No, Angel, I made that one up myself. Hold the applause. I was just assuming that Solitaire hates V-Day because, as she proudly states, she's single. Or it could be the fact that it's almost completely manufactured. Either way, I understand.
