February is Loooove Time

You don't have to be in love to enjoy Looooove Time. You can love your friends, family members, your pet Beta, your house, your really comfortable shoes. (Ah, comfortable shoes.) It's all loooooove. And we will be celebrating love! Probably long enough for you to get sick of it. Today's looooooove note: the Central and North Side libraries have copies of a new magazine called Victoria. It's devoted to the age when it was common for friends to write long flowery letters, calling each other 'darling' and 'dear heart'. I'm talking totally platonic middle-aged female friends here. These people knew about expressing love. The new Jan/Feb 2009 issue has an article featuring sumptuous photos of Victorian Valentines. Take a look, dear heart.
