Valentine’s Day and BAFTA Winners and Losers

Happy Valentine’s Day, remember even if, like me, you’re not part of a couple, do not make fun of Valentine’s Day, make fun of the people that wasted so much money on heart shaped junk.

Today I’m giving a list of the BAFTA awards, winners and losers, but before that, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I will post one of the most clichéd Valentine poems in its entirety, most people don’t know how it really goes;

The rose is red, the violet’s blue
The honey is sweet, and so are you
Thou are my love and I am thine
I drew thee to my Valentine
The lot was cast and then I drew
And Fortune said it shou’d be you

Now onto the BAFTAs:

    • Toy Story 3 never should have been made. Why ruin a perfectly good franchise by ending it with sadness, not that the others weren’t sad too.
