Happy Valentine's Day: A Geek Love Poem

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, of course, so here’s a lovely sentiment on a T-shirt from the fine folks at ThinkGeek.

(BoomTown is still in an Elmer’s glue coma from making 252 handmade cards with 33 pounds of glitter, which my sons’ school insists on instead of the store-bought kind from Walgreens that I prefer.)

In any case, big, sloppy hugs all around to the readers of All Things Digital–except for those who know just who they are.

But to make up, please don’t think sending a romantic Twitter to us or one of those dumb digital virtual gifts of silly-looking little animals and baked goods on Facebook is going to cut it.

That’s right, you need to send a whole email to show that you really care! And maybe an iTunes gift certificate for Jill Sobule’s fabulous new “California Years” record too (I am wearing out my advanced copy, but it is officially out in April, including the apt song, “Bloody Valentine”).

Also a Tesla.

After all, love is bling.

Another gadget you don’t really need. Will not work once you get it home. New model out in 4 weeks. Battery life is too short to be of any use.
