Hump Day Snow Day Valentine's Day Wednesday List

By Liz Kelly

Violets are blue,
Roses are red,
Get in on the list,
If you're not still in bed.

(For real poetic artistry, see last post)

In a survey of 5,000 Australians, more than 70 percent of respondents (of both sexes) said they'd rather spend Valentine's Day with their partner than a celebrity dream date.

While fidelity is commendable, we here in the land of list-making know that there's nothing wrong with a healthy imagination and today we'll get our creative juices flowing by compiling a list of fantasy dream dates. We could opt for the obvious and name our celebrity dream dates ("and then Russell Crowe would duel the "Donnie Darko"-era Jake Gyllenhaal for my affection"), but why make this a rehash of our top fives?

To give this list a little twist, we'll make the objects of our affection completely unattainable: If you could spend Valentine's Day with one fictional character -- from a book, TV show, comic, movie, whatever -- who would it be and why?

P.S. While researching today's list, I came across this fab article quoting Jamaican musicians on their Valentine's plans. My favorite is from Mavado: "I plan to spend Valentine's on the street and flex wit mi girl still."
