I actually received two suggestions this past week for Valentine’s-Day related comment diversions. The first, from Parissa, was an idea taken from the MSN movies section, in which Kim Morgan introduced the 10 most beloved romantic comedies that are “annoying, cloying, or unintentionally dysfunctional.” The list of movies (Pretty Woman, You’ve Got Mail, Ghost, etc.) aren’t exactly surprising, but the joy here, as Parissa noted, is in the comments: That poor Kim Morgan clearly didn’t realize she was writing for MSN; she gets 47 pages of comments, most of which suggest she needs to get laid. Me: I just think she needs an appreciative audience.

The second suggestion, from Jen310 is simple enough: “Songs to Get Your Freak On,” “songs that get you in the mood for good old-fashion baby making or getting down freaky style.”

And while we’re on the subject of Valentine’s Day, how about we round out today’s diversion with a third query: Your worst dating experience?

So, let’s roll all those into one for our very special Valentine’s Day diversion, and you can play any or all questions:

1) Least Favorite “Beloved” Romantic Comedy: Moonstruck.

2) Best Song to Get Your Freak On: “Into Temptation,” Crowded House.

3) Worst Dating Experience: There are dozens, but I’ll mention the one that started them all: Crocodile Dundee II. The Royal Theater. My first kiss. One chipped tooth (hers).
