Happy Birthday yohannon!

I wish I could be there to help you celebrate, but you're going to have plenty of help without me. ;) Have a great one!

*hugs and kisses to anyone who wants 'em*

Happy Valentine's Day to anyone who wants those sorts of wishes. :) *gives a special kiss to a certain someone*

I heard something amusing as I drove in to work this morning on the news, which altricial and puckmalfoy especially should find interesting, though I would imagine they already know.

Apparently, Valentine's Day is basically a federally mandated holiday in Singapore. The declining birth rate in the country has concerned the government so much that they have set up all sorts of activities for single people to get together - there are supposed to be parties, kareoke, and other things - all to hopefully get people to have babies.

In all seriousness, I have no problem with encouraging people to have sex responsibly. But is this responsible, really? Is there perhaps a reason that the birth rate is declining - people are realizing they can't afford a large family, perhaps? Is the government going to pay to raise these kids? Puck or Anna, if you know any more about this, I'm curious.

But mostly I'm damned amused. >:D

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is going to be very quick as I have a phonecall to make. ;)

MY SISTER IS HAVING TWINS!!!!!!!



I am so excited!!! Can you tell?!?!

This is a big deal in my family. I don't know if I've mentioned it, but my mother is a twin. Her mother was a twin. My mom is the only one in the last few generations who DIDN'T have twins. So we are all running around like loons. Please ignore me if I squeee aimlessly.

Oh, and queerasjohn? That DOES mean you might get double your money's worth, so to speak. ;)
