1. I handed out four wonderful poems about love and kindness and Valentine's Day to my Intro to Poetry students even after confessing to them that I am an avowed Valentine's Day grinch.
2. I enjoyed listening to "Valentine's Day is Over" repeatedly and then listening to "I Hate Myself for Loving You" several times. It helped me get my Valentine's Day grinch on.
3. The cast for "Taming of the Shrew" gathered for the first time tonight and we read through the whole play and I marveled at Shakespeare's copious obsession with how we never really know just what's real.
