Take As Much As You Need.

15th February 2011

.Being single has made for the best Valentines Days. Theres no pressure involved. I usually forget about it and when I walk outside, there’s an unusual amount of men holding flowers and storefronts illuminating more pink than the streets of a breast cancer marathon.  What is not to like?!

Last year, I somehow managed to smuggle a bundle of balloons out of a fancy shmancy fashion week party. This year, I tried to continue spreading the love in ways that don’t come back in the form of an STD.

So when I woke up, I printed out some flyers and taped them up around New York for the more humbled of hearts.

I loved this experiment! I loved peoples reactions, walking by these places later in the day to find pieces missing, and the silly guys that would occasionally appear over my shoulder as I put them up, searching for a question that didn’t need to exist.

“Do you do this often?”

“Do you mean put myself in danger of paper cuts?”

    So awesome, croaky… I love it. My only question is this: Why are you posting flyers around Brooklyn instead of playing with an elephant in a hut?

    What a great way to spread some love. I named a cockroach after an ex-boyfriend at the Bronx Zoo. I figured I’d spread a little love and donate to wildlife and give myself a little laugh at the same time.
