QUESTION: Okay, enough negativity. What are some nice, creative, or random things, that you've done for someone you liked?

  1. I don't know if it's creative but I gave him a card and wrote as much as I could fit in the card about why I'm so thankful to have him in my life.

  2. One morning I was walking through some buildings and happened upon a door. This was a door that needed to be pushed -- well, from where I was standing -- rather than pulled, to be opened. I saw a few people coming the other way so i paused to let them through. You see, it would have been rather rude of me to pushed through because they were already within the opening radius of the door. I had expected them to pass through and be on their merry way, then I would step through and be on my merry way. Staring at a generic stain on the ground, waiting for expectation to become reality, my ears prick up to the sound of a voice. Something along the lines of "right this way". Yes, unimpressive, I know. It was not these three simple words that caught my attention however; it was the way it was said with such musicality and a raw sweetness that could not be feigned. I am confused for a second and my eyes search for the source. Standing there with one hand holding the door and the other raised as if to welcome you to a place of safety, a place where you belong, ... home, was a girl with a smile that could brighten the day of the grumpiest of felines. I stepped through the door, mustered a 'thanks' and as I was walking away, I knew that today was going to be a good day.

  5. I do a lot of nice things for my love. His birthday is usually the biggest thing. Last year, I surprised him with tickets to a Just for Laughs show and then a night at the Trump. The year before that, I threw him an Arrested Development themed party (with grilled cheese, presents wrapped as The Cornballer, Tobias' book, etc. and a custom cake that looked like the box for Quicken Premiere). As for other people, I'll randomly buy my friends' drinks or, if they're in a store and want something not too expensive and are waffling on it, I'll get it for them. It's nice to do nice things for people.

  6. One friend I made rainbow pancakes for her birthday. Smuggled some pancakes mix in from the States, red velvet and perfectly pink pancake mix, along with some staples, blueberry, banana, carrot buckwheat, etc, with various food colouring. It looked pretty good, but we had to eat them separately because they tasted funky as hell all together.

    Another friend I knew was depressed and she had this fetish for Hello Kitty and tats. So to cheer her up I drew a mock Hello Kitty on my left forearm and put a bandage over it. I told her I got a new tat and she squealed when she saw it. Brightened her day. The only thing was I used a Sharpie and it didn't come off for three days after despite scrubbing. I had to wear a long-sleeved shirt in the summer to hide the damn thing.

    One time I tried to apologize to a friend by making something of a slideshow. I used a marker to try to draw cartoony messages on paper and put them into a slideshow. The only problem was that I kept the door to my room closed and had my face close to the paper whilst doing the project. So at the beginning my pics were of me holding these messages and slowly you can see how fucked I was getting because of the fumes. It took about three hours as my motor skills diminished and I was fucked after that, puked several times. The result? I was ignored, then bitched at by the recipient which told me they were not worth the effort and rightly so. I did tell this to other girls and they loved me for it.

  7. She said no. So, I stopped and said that I was sorry, then proceeded to quietly sob on my side of the bed as we fell asleep.

  8. We were in a long distance relationship (he in England and myself in Canada), and I went to visit him without telling him (his friends helped me). I showed up at about 10am on a Saturday so he was still asleep and was able to sneak into his room and kiss him good morning and give him breakfast and a little sumthin sumthin.

    2. I buy myself valentines chocolates the day after valentines every year.

      Seriously, full priced chocolates are for suckers.

  10. The Office of Advancement does candygrams every year so I typically send them to a few of my professors and some of my coworkers.
