Happy Anna Howard Shaw Day

I love 30 Rock, so for those of you who don't understand what my title means, let me explain. Liz Lemon, played by Tina Fey, is tired of Valentine's Day so instead of living through another painful Valentine's Day with no one, she decides to get a root canal. Anyway, she names the day Anna Howard Shaw Day after a suffragette who was born on February 14th. She explains this to one of her co-worker's daughters when asked to buy cookies for Valentine's Day. Lemon says she is buying them for Anna Howard Shaw Day instead. Obviously, Lemon has had some bad Valentine's Day experiences. There you have it my friends, Happy Anna Howard Shaw Day!

That doesn't mean I've had bad Valentine's Day experiences, because I haven't. For the last four years I've gone to a movie with my friend Jenny...unless we have dates ourselves (which we haven't had). This year we're going to go see Valentine's Day, which is appropriate, right? Titles these days...

Except, we aren't seeing the movie tonight on account of Jenny being in Texas. We're seeing it later this week.

So how will I be spending Anna Howard Shaw Day? First things first, I'll shower. It's 2:30pm and I'm still hanging out in my bed watching Bewitched on TBS. Maybe I shouldn't have stayed awake until 4:30am watching Inglourious Basterds...thanks Todd and Joe. Then I'll get some homework done and relax.

Sounds pretty productive to me.

Here's to everyone having a Happy Anna Howard Shaw Day!
