Just a thought before I get some sleep: I made an impulse buy of some Star Wars: Episode III valentines the other day at Star Market. They cost $2.99 plus tax. Upon starting to address them tonight, I noticed that none of them are really appropriate for showing true affection–they all feature sentiments like:
Anakin: “To a most powerful friend!”
Yoda: “My trusted ally you are.”
Palpatine: “Together, we can rule the galaxy!”
Obi-Wan: “May the Force be with you!”
Darth Vader: “You have my allegiance.”
C3PO: “To a splendid counterpart!”
R2D2: “You can fly with me anytime!”
Only the last one of those is even close to being an actual valentine, and it features a picture of a droid that can’t really talk.
I guess they assumed that the kind of person who would buy Star Wars-themed valentine set probably wouldn’t be needing any actual valentines.
More on classes, work, and your strange obsession with leaving digits of pi in my comments tomorrow.
