In honour of Valentine's Day, this week's Primate Party is a day early.
That lovely image was from the fine folks at http://icanhascheezburger.com/, which always makes me smile...
New Scientist's Short Sharp Science blog is also getting in on the action, with posts about gorilla lovin' and a different kind of Valentine's Day card - for people who want to anonymously alert former partners to go to an STD clinic. Lovely. (I really have lowered the tone today, haven't I?)
I hope you all have a lovely Valentine's Day, in whatever way you choose to spend it! Hubby and I are going to a hockey game. Since it's my birthday on the 16th, we've decided to skip the restaurant reservation and flowers panic of Feb 14th and celebrate our two anniversaries instead. The wedding was in August and our first date was in January, so it splits the year up very nicely indeed.
