    Best, Worst, or most unusual Valentine's Day Gift - post 'em!

    Most unusual for me.

    Ex-husband was a plumber and for a Valentine's Day gift - I came home to my him working in the basement - only to come up and tell me that he "got" me a control valve (can't remember the name) that allowed you to flush the toilet yet not affect the water pressure say if you're taking a shower.

    I think Capone wins the "worst" category, with his gift to Moran back in '29.

    Best I've ever received--free food (i.e. romantic dinner and/or chocolate). Hey, it's food. And it's free. Nothing competes with that.

    Worst--a cheap crappy card...with nothing in it. Not even a "Dear Nekohime" [message in card] "love, Sender." I still don't know who sent it to me, but I know it was for me because it had my name on the envelope.

    Most unusual--anything teh bf gives me. We buy each other the little stuff we want/need but have been putting off buying. I've posted this before somewhere, but this year I'm giving him a new rubber ligature and he's giving me multicolored tights--definitely not traditional Valentine's gifts.

    When I was taking Anatomy and Physiology, my wife gave me a heart for Valentines Day.....

    Now most people would find that fairy typical, but the one she gave me was preserved in formaldehyde, in a jar and a real heart to boot!!!!!!!!

    Unusual, but the girl and I are geeks.

    I'm giving my fiancee a Harmony 880 remote. She's constantly annoyed with having 6 or 7 remotes for everything around the house. I've been programming it the past couple nights so when I give it to her, it's charged, programmed, and ready to use.
    I even put in a joke program in under the customized "Summon CGK1" button, (which turns off the TV.)

    I bought some photo stamps this year for my wife with her dog's picture on them, gonna leave it in the biscuit tin. She loves her doggie. I love it too after spending $3500 on it for chemo in 2007.

    OMG! That reminds me!! I was at the grocery store looking at meat, and there was a beef heart and it was Valentines Day.

    Being the jokester that I am, I instinctively picked it up, showed it to the man next to me and said to him, "Will you be my valentine?" He asked me what it was. I told him it was a beef heart. He said " A what??" I said "A cow's heart". That man's eyes almost popped out of his head, his mouth was gaping and as he walked backwards he was saying (while swinging his arms in the air) NO NO NO!! GO AWAYYY!!! And then he almost RAN out of the store.

    I was thinking ....."DANG this guy was a nutso!"

    Then I realized he was from India.
