Picture of Valentine's RoboGrinch!!!
(This instructable is dedicated to my fellow brother Rodrigo, who starts a new life today; and to all the people who thinks Valentine's Day - and its Colombian equivalent: Love and Friendship Day in september- is the worst nightmare in the year)

Valentine's Day: flowers, chocolates, cards, love is everywhere. All the couples kissing and hugging and saying tiny lovely silly things. Edward and Bella Forever And Ever!

Well, I think I'm a very romantic guy. But, unluckely, almost all the Valentine's Days and Love and Friendship Days catch me alone, brokenhearted and without money. My ugly ex-girlfriend is now with a "Brazilian Male Top Model", my roommate married with the love of her life (Hooray!), my friends are in love (or without love but not looking), and it seems like every pretty woman is married or has a boyfriend...

But, before I could make my annual ritual of listen "It must have been love" of Roxette and, armed with a big reserve of ice cream, see "Love actually" and curse the fate, the opportunity knocks and I have a first date. A blind date. In Valentine´s Day. And she wants a gift (A GIFT? WTF?) And a special one. I'm so excited. What is the emoticon for "sarcasm"?

I don't have money, but I have trash in my workshop. So, I can make something that lasts more than flowers and chocolates and maybe, could be in my date's desk. And who knows? Maybe she will give it to her new boyfriend (maybe another Brazilian) when she becomes my ex.

I love your valentine RObo!!!! I too hate the holiday I have only once had someone to share it with. This holiday usually just reminds me of how sad my life is. I have great ideas for having it hold other things, like maybe a picture or something. I dont know we'll see.
M.C. Langer (author)  Kirstareis4 years ago
Thanks Kirstareis! Well, I hate Valentine's, too. In Colombia we hace another holiday too, the "Día del Amor y la Amistad" (Love and Friendship Day) in September. So, I have two dark months.

You will love my next photo instructable, a "Día del Amor y la Amistad" homage, Quake 4 Style! So, stay tuned! :-)
