Stupid Cupid

I don't understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day.
When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind
is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon.”

  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 02/14/12:

Carol,

Just wanted to let you know that my newsletter opened today without any problems. It was so strange because I wasn't even able to access previously viewed newsletters.

I hope you have a wonderful day and get lots of sweet valentines from all those lovely children and grandchildren of yours. God Bless.

Joyce Cahoon

   That's good to hear, Joyce - I think the gremlins must have invaded! Thanks for letting us know!


    From Cheryl Mays Howard ('66) of VA - 02/14/12 - "V. Day":

Our neighborhood growing up, seems to be the only ones that remember stomping valentines. Anyone remember?

Peace & Blessing, Cheryl

   Stomping Valentine's?!? I certainly don't remember that, Cheryl! Perhaps I blocked the memory because it just seems so wrong to me - but then I never liked the idea of birthday spankings, either!

   "Anyone? Anyone?"

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/14/12:

When the mother returned from the grocery store, her small son pulled out the box of animal crackers he had begged for. Then he spread the animal-shaped crackers all over the kitchen counter.

"What are you doing?" his mom asked. "The box says you can't eat them if the seal is broken," the boy explained. "I'm looking for the seal."

Stupid Cupid

Written by Howard Greenfield (15 Mar 1936 – 04 Mar 1986) and Neil Sedaka (b. 13 Mar 1939)

Recorded by Connie Francis, 1958
(b.12 Dec 1938)
 

Stupid Cupid, you're a real mean guy
I'd like to clip your wings so you can't fly
I'm in love and it's a crying shame
And I know that you're the one to blame
Hey hey, set me free
Stupid Cupid, stop picking on me

I can't do my homework and I can't think straight
I meet him every morning 'bout half past eight
I'm acting like a lovesick fool
You've even got me carrying his books to school
Hey hey, set me free
Stupid Cupid, stop picking on me

You mixed me up for good right from the very start
Hey now, go play Robin Hood with somebody else's heart

You got me jumping like a crazy clown
And I don't feature what you're putting down
Well, since I kissed his loving lips of wine
The thing that bothers me is that I like it fine
Hey hey, set me free
Stupid Cupid, stop picking on me

You got me jumping like a crazy clown
And I don't feature what you're putting down
Well, since I kissed his loving lips of wine
The thing that bothers me is that I like it fine
Hey hey, set me free
Stupid Cupid, stop picking on me

Hey hey, set me free
Stupid Cupid, stop picking on me
