how about a heart shaped pillow ( a decent pillo) and double it as a chocolat holder. maybe put a pocket in it or on it somewere. maybe a speaker on each side of heart that you can connect and ipod to or already set songs. To win, it has to be either really simple yet cool, or really cool and with really good pix and really good instructions. Id go for the second. its an almost 100% way to win. not that ive won any contests lol. Im guessing this one would win for sure though, now all you need is someone willing to do it and make it look good.  ;) Good luck guys!

Sweet flavour, or sweet nice?

I just need to know if I should warm up my oven or my soldering iron...

 If you are baking, don't use the soldering iron.  Lead can cause cancer.

 Not if you secretly hate the person, and want their life insurance.

Make 'em anyway, and give 'em to yourself!  No-one needs to know!  ;)

I think the only way you can do that without humiliating yourself is by having multiple personality's (that are in love with eachother)

 Would that be incest?

 I was thinking of having two personalities that are both in love with eachother (basically one personality of you, loves another personality of you) this seems as though it would be more like two twins being in love with each other and thus is incestual

Nah, that's just called narcissism.

So two identical twins cannot be in love with each other because by admiring the other, they are in fact admiring themselves and is thus narcisstic?

no, twins are different physical beings.

 However, if you believe in split personalities... then you would also have to accept that there are two individuals simply living in the same body, sharing physical control. 

So they are like two different people, in the same body...

It is fascinating and weird at the same time to see how an innocent topic of Valentinesday can change to a discussion wether dual personality's who are in love with eachother are having incest or  not...

 The two personalities will surely be very unhappy, since they can not meet each other. It will be a relationship based on letters given to yourself...

 What scares me that I have been on the Internet so long, that this conversation doesn't even phase me as anything out of the ordinary.

I think that if there's only one body, the law would say it's not incest, just a bizarre psychological situation.

Well, your other choice is to give them to your mom.

Hey, if there's a girl you fancy, perhaps a gift would be the spark that gets things going!
