OK, long ago I was grumpy about Valentine's Day for reasons that may or may not have to do with once being broken up with at a nice restaurant on the day. So I decided to do something about that, and what I did was to host a little tea party where lovely picture postcards were passed around the circle, and we all wrote captions on the back of them.

To do it properly, one looks at the picture first, comes up with a caption, and only then does one turn the postcard over to read what everyone else has written and to add one's own caption at the bottom of the list.

I'm going to put some of those here. If you want to do it like we did it, look at the image link first, invent your caption (if you like -- we were allowed to pass if we couldn't think of one we liked), and then look at the list of captions and add yours in the comments.

(This will be a lot of posts. I'll use cut-tags, but also I will completely understand if anyone feels overwhelmed and wants to drop me from their reading list until this spate of foolishness.)

And with that, esteemed readers, I give you the first one, which is a particular favorite of mine:


"Did you say 'Oil can'?" (this one in in Mike Ford's handwriting)

"No, really, I just power up the suit and hold my arms out like this and take off."

"No, that's my sister. I'm La Belle Dame Sans A Reasonably Cooperative Attitude."

"They break up the blankness of the armor."

"Hold on... hold on... hold on... wait, are they soft or hard lenses?"

And that's how it works. I'll tag all of these Snarky Valentine's Postcard Tea for ease in finding them.

(And I'm smiling now, because those were some fun times.)
