I love Twitter.  It helps me find people who see this crazy world in ways that make me laugh, and I REALLY need that right now.

I am single this year, by choice, on Valentine’s Day.  I am working three jobs and a little too pre-occupied.  I know that I just don’t have the time, patience or the inclination to be charming and coiffed at my age for someone else’s amusement, so I am facing Valentine’s Day uncoupled.
