    Well, shit.

    I've just read my Valentine's and they made me all teary! And they make me wish even more that I'd sent more than one. It's been a bad couple weeks and I've been a wreck, to be honest. I'm afraid I was too wrapped up in my own head to bother with writing my notes, and I was also terrified I'd forget someone! But to those who sent Valentines, thank you. There are people here who've really impacted me, although we've never met, and to think that I could have impacted someone else in the same way is humbling. To those to whom I didn't send my Valentines, I'll let this serve as a reminder to let you know just how much I appreciate you.

    Thanks, kestra! And also, thanks for the venting offer...I may take you up on that. ;)

    Thanks Kestra! It was fun helping out, seeing the positive messages people wanted to send really made me smile. It's a good start to the day.

    And Kestra saying "it's okay if I don't get any." Pft. What planet are you living on girl?! :lol: I couldn't stay up until 2 AM like she did, but I made sure that any messages for her were sent this morning!

    Big, big thanks to Kestra for doing all this. Thank you! :)

    What is the deal with tears? You get them both when you're sad and happy?! *gets of my Seinfeld horse*

    Don't feel bad. I know I forgot at least a few, and I haven't had bothersome stuff going on. Also I'm constantly amazed in the most positive of ways that people I haven't met have such a big part in my life. The true power of the internet.

    Also, if needed, I offer my services at venting as well.



    Now, thank you to whoever sent the anonymous message to me! It's lovely! :adore: I'm feeling halfway between really appreciative and being OCD trying to figure out who sent it :lol: No pressure though, I really do like it, I'm just a little crazy ;)

    ^Unfortunately, tears are the way I seem to express every emotion! Thanks, too. :)

    Yeah, the anonymous ones have me guessing, too, so you're not the only one who's a little crazy.

    I'm sorry, but I'm imagining a hilarious montage of you going trough a range of emotions, all while bawling your eyes out. That shouldn't amuse me, but it does :lol: As said, I'm a bit crazy.

    The worst part is that I cry when I'm angry! I'm not a fan of the show Friends, but I do remember a scene that resonated with me hilariously in which Rachel was confronting her boss (I think) and while sobbing hysterically said something along the lines of, "Before I begin, these are not tears of sadness, or weakness, they are tears of ANGER!"

    :lol:

    Oh dear. :lol: I have that happened a few times, but then I was sort of a hybrid of sad and angry so I doesn't really count.

    No, I have nervous laughter if someone confronts me about something and they're a bit forceful about it. Which was really a bitch back in school. Like this guy holding me up accusing me of something I haven't done and I'm laughing hysterically all the while while swearing I didn't do it. :borg:

    Many thanks to the sender of my pink roses. (Yeah, I know you didn't send them anonymously. I just thought it was more fun to thank you here.)

    And big hugs to TSQ.

    Gorgeous!

    I feel a bit tearful too but not surprised by anything not cluttering up my inbox.

    Thanks for all the Valentines, guys....I too got an Anonymous one that didn't even come with a message attached so who knows (besides Kes) who sent it, but many thanks in any case! I hope my recipients enjoyed theirs.

    Thanks to those who sent me a message. It actually meant a lot to me and made my cold heart warm just a little.
