Happy Mothers’ Day

***

Even if your mother drives you batty, long after she stopped being the object of delusional fantasy, thanks to too many episodes of Wonder Woman and Marvel comics about Ms. Marvel.

I heard a certain Wahlberg from an SNL skit when I saw this frame of Urusei Yatsura.  “And, say hello to your mom for me.”

Mega-Sour Valentines for Mega-Sore Hearts

*****

And, here are your stinky Mega Man greeting cards, your Wily zingers for anyone who has wronged you, left you cold or anyone who just doesn’t click with you.  For rain checks and missed calls…for rejections and disappointments, have a slice of bitter pie.

One Mega Dose of Vitamin V

*****

I won’t be posting as many ecards as previous years.  But, here’s one surge of Mega Man valentines.  Why mid-1990s cartoon Mega Man?  Just because.  😛  It’s the cartoon that just happened to cross my mind in recent weeks.  So, get your loving robot freak on.

Starting with a 9-pack of head-scratchers.

And, while I’m on a ROLL…

Why not throw a few more heads into the bowl…

A few crooked heads…

A pinch of wise advice…

A dash of cheer…

Something borrowed, something blue…

Push a few buttons…

And, presto…you have some digital substitute for shared warmth this year.

I’ll throw in a separate post for the NO-valentines, or sour feelings for those who feel the need to drop poop on someone’s doorstep.

Happy Birthday, Rachael Stirling!

*****


Happy birthday, Rachael!

When I told my doctor I had a crush on Diane Rigg, he asked if I knew she had a daughter close to my age. Doctor who? It doesn’t really matter.

Little did I know–until I did some research–that daughter was you.  Astrologically, we’re not a perfect ten. But, we’ve got some good chemistry and, at least, can see eye-to-eye. I might be playing with fire, but I thought it would be best to let you know A-S-P.

[This little note is also riddled with clues about astrology and TV appearances if you couldn’t already see that. Actually, I saw you on Doctor Who playing a blind woman. I was so intrigued by your presence, I wanted to know more. I have watched many an episode of The Avengers (the original British secret agent series) and have seen a movie in which your mother paired with a doctor played by George C. Scott. I also found you attached to a project called Boy Meets Girl with Martin Freeman. And, the dots slowly connected.]

Rachael Sterling, Gemini Fire Snake, and a hot cup of cocoa

[Alas, I shared my feelings too late.  Someone else has taken your hand.  But, I send good wishes all the same.]

This Is the Try-four-ce of Valentines, Link

*****

I didn’t realize it was the anniversary of the original Legend of Zelda NES video game soon enough.  [The Legend of Zelda, NES 1986-2016]  But, in my own way, I decided to celebrate with a boatload of love notes (and BOMB notes**).  Here is the first batch.  We’ll start with…

SHE/HE LOVES ME NOT (cards for those who wish to cut ties, express disapproval/disgust/anger, complain about someone falling short/forgetting, missed calls/dates, pleas for forgiveness, opting to go it alone, mishaps, etc.)

And, as an added bonus, I’ll throw in some Galaxy Rangers love notes.

**BOMB NOTES. See the explanation in the related post.

NEXT WEEK:  The naughty Triforce of Power, the brave Triforce of Courage and the occasionally blunt and/or refreshing Triforce of Wisdom.  All romantic/erotic.

Valentine-o-shima, Day 1

*****

I warned you some weeks ago.  I didn’t realize how crazy I’d get putting these love notes together.  But, now I am feeling a bit short of breath as I scroll the tally.  So, to help alleviate the pressure, I am releasing them in big batches, at least once a week until Valentine’s Day.  I would not be surprised if there’s still overflow into Dragobete.  But, I think I need to curb my creativity and quit while they’re over my head.  What do you think?

I am thinking I will have these up for a limited time and then need to clear the history decks so I don’t have to scroll through so many pictures in one folder to get to what I need for other posts.

Now, onto the first wave…

A Coca-Cola ad from 1998 inspired this lot.

^ All of the above are variations on one message using a few different images.  Other cards will be grouped similarly as the “explosions” unfold.

^Impatience, alerting your date/friend you are getting ready to meet with him/her, etc.

^Thanks for a good time/date and appreciation of a smiling face.

^More variations on a delay of meeting for the day, running errands, saving the world, etc.

^Various faces and good surprises, expressions of stimulation, responses to voices, admissions of love, etc.

^Mixed thoughts splashed with humor, mostly pleasant, from both male and female perspectives, when couples converse, meeting someone new, approval of someone new, etc

.

^Sharing a drink,  metaphors for drinks, refreshing compliments, etc.

^Answering the call, responding to a request/need, bursting at the seems with excitement, etc.

^Random inclusion of Taylor Swift as this face shot had her name written all over it.  🙂  You see her making this face on just about every award show commercial.

^Mixed compliments, letting someone know you’re on your way, reasons for delay, rushing to the rescue, etc.

^The odd ones that may or may not fit in other groups.

^A request to meet somewhere private to discuss feelings (particularly when you don’t want to be having a personal chat on company time), contemplating calling/contacting that new face you just met, waiting for someone new/special to contact you, a flimsy excuse for not spending time with your beloved.

^Words of warning and reasons for upheaval, a breakup on the horizon, trust/hearts broken, questioning feelings, questioning someone’s absence, asking if someone is still speaking with you, etc.

Phew!  That was a challenge, just trying to group and lay them all out.  It’ll take a while for the smoke to clear.  But, I hope people will appreciate the effort and make use of these.
