Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day – Even Batman

This is an advertisement for the Warner Brother Store

St. Patrick’s Day. Where everyone is Irish. Even Batman.

The streets of Gotham were littered with the remains of the festivities. Green plastic hats, ‘Kiss me I’m Irish’ buttons, and so much green beer. One hero  brave enough to cut through the clutter stood at the end of the block. All who saw him gaped in awe. He stepped confidently over pools of green beer and prone bodies. On this day, at this moment, he was the hero he deserved to be: Irish Batman!

Don’t Play With Yourself on Valentine’s Day

I’ve written about St. Valentine’s Day a lot in my life. Something about this day sticks in my craw. I’m a romantic but like New Year’s Eve, every Valentine’s Day I’ve tried to make special usually fell flat. The expectations of certain events are difficult to meet and exceed. I really do think of myself as romantic, but I’m also very closed and cautious. Romantic gestures can also turn into really cheeseball moves if the person on the receiving end isn’t on the same level.

Normally, this time of year, I pimp out a piece I wrote a long time ago called Valloween (read my anti-Valentine’s Day rant).

This year instead of just pushing cynicism, I’m doing something different and fighting the banality I hate about Valentine’s Day. Think outside the box regarding what you do with your loved one on the 14th. What I’m going to suggest is play a game. The following are games perfect for two people to learn and play together. Some are quick, some are strategic, some are luck based, and some will end in flipped tables and angry words, but this is Valentine’s Day, that was bound to happen to someone anyway. Sorry, I just can’t keep my cynicism at bay.

Instead of Seven Deadly Sins, this year, you get Seven Fun Games For Two People. See? I’m capable of change!
