What can I say? I'm a hopeless romantic

So..
Ahh, Valentine's day. I could do a long depressing rant about how pointless/useless/depressing it is, but really, why should I? I'm in a good mood, and I refuse to let a special holiday centered on love get me down. Suffice to say, the only reason I've been looking forward to today was to write this post. Which is a good reason. IT IS!
In other news, my usual computer is broken so I'm on my slow crappy one. We might be getting a new one though, so its all good. It's been two weeks of school already, and I'm finding it rather dull. Still it keeps me active and I kinda enjoy hanging out with everyone. Also, I finally got Franz Ferdinand's song Take Me Out, after forgetting a million times. It has one of my favourite first verses of all time:
So if you're lonely,
You know I'm here,
Waiting for you.
I'm just a crosshair,
I'm just a shot,
Away from you.

And if you leave here,
You leave me broken,
Shattered, a lie.
I'm just a crosshair,
I'm just a shot,
and then we can die.

My number one favourite first verses is probably Vermilion by Slipknot, which I think I've talked about :
She seems dressed in all the rings,
Of past fatalities.
So fragile yet so devious,
She continues to see it.
Climatic hands that press,
Her temples and my chest.
Enter the night that she came home.
Forever.

Oh (She's the only one that makes me sad)

She is everything and more,
The solemn, hypnotic,
My Dahlia, bathed in possession.
She is home to me.

I get nervous, perverse,
When I see her it's worse,
But the stress is astounding,
it's now or never she's coming home.
Forever.

In fact, I think all the verses of Vermilion are awesome, but I won't put them down. It's not so much the words themselves, the singer's voice is what makes it really good.
Fun Fact: Whenever Schism by Tool comes on my iPod, I automatically think to answer my mobile for a second, because its my ringtone.

Valentine's Day by Linkin Park:
My insides all turned to ash,
So slow.
and blew away as I collapse,
So cold.
A black wind took them away,
From sight.
And held the darkness over day,
That night.
And the clouds above moved closer.
Looking so dissatisfied.
But the heartless wind kept blowing, blowing.
I used to be my own protection,
But not now.
Cause my path has lost direction,
Somehow.
A black wind took you away,
From sight.
And held the darkness over day,
That night.
And the clouds above moved closer.
Looking so dissatisfied.
And the ground below grew colder,
As they put you down inside.
But the heartless wind kept blowing,
Blowing.


So now you're gone,
and I was wrong,
I never knew what it was like,
To be alone,
On a Valentine's Day,

On a Valentine's Day,

On a Valentine's Day,

On a Valentine's Day,

On a Valentine's Day,

(I used to be my own protection)
On a Valentine's Day,
(But not now)

On a Valentine's Day,
(Cause my mind has lost direction)
On a Valentine's Day,
(Somehow)
On a Valentine's Day,
(I used to be my own protection)
On a Valentine's Day,
(But not now)

On a Valentine's Day,
(Cause my mind has lost direction)
On a Valentine's Day,
(Somehow)


Hope you had a good Valentine's Day.
