As a self confessed Soppy Happorth on these occasions I will send my felicitations to all the lovely ladies in my life that I think so much of. You enrich the world that I live in, and I thank you for it..

Hihyah you old bat you :-)

Happorth is a slang term for a halfpenny in the old LSD currency system in the UK, prior to decimalisation in 1971.



"Soppy Happorth" is a term of endearment to refer to someone who is actually somewhat more emotional over romantic matters than they like to openly portray to others. It's probably more of a Northern than Southern saying in the UK.

Well it's gone seven, and i'm still in the lab marking a pile of 3rd year lab reports, on St Valentine's night.
That's depressing.

I'm sure he would rather be elsewhere doing other things :-) I think that Feb 14th either just passes you by whether attached or single, or it doesn't. I've heard blokes over the pub say things like "Valentines? nah, don't encourage them, they'll want birthday pressies next!". But of course 99% of that is just bravado banter in front of their mates. Other men take their partners out for a nice meal somewhere and are quite open about it.

Why do so many men feel embarrassed about being emotional or romantic in public, but still do it in private? Never understood it myself. Yet the same men will cry like babies if their football team loses the Cup, or thump someone.

We'll be going out to see a movie, but I can't decide between Robocop and a Winter's Tale. The original Robocop was such a great movie that I am sure the remake will be disappointing. A Winters Tale is based on a book I read well over 20 years ago and loved very much. I was quite excited that they were making it into a movie. Unfortunately they went and ruined it by casting Colin Farrell in the lead role. Which was heart breaking because I really hate Colin Farrell.

So which is to be, possibly disappointing remake of an awesome movie or movie based on favourite book but starring Colin Farrell?

We went to see "A Winter's Tale" in the end. It starred Colin Farrell, Russell Crowe and that bird who died in Downton Abby.

The movie was dreadful and it wasn't even Colin Farrell's fault. About halfway through I leaned over to my fiance and whispered "at least they're not singing".
