Hello to those that have found me! I no longer post here, as I moved to Vox! If I know you, you may be granted into my neighborhood. ;)

My cousin posted this in her bulletin, thought it was a cute yet funny story. Read on.

A store that sells new husbands has just opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:

You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband.

On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs.

The second floor sign reads:

Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.

The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.

"Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.

She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads:

Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework.

"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!" Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads:

Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor and the Sign reads:

Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.

To avoid gender bias charges, the store's owner opens a New Wives store just across the street. The first floor has wives that love sex. The second floor has wives that love sex and have money. The third through sixth floors have never been visited.

High school junior says he wanted to ‘put a smile’ on the girls’ faces

WESTON, Fla. - If any female juniors at Cypress Bay High School weren’t aware of classmate Paul Kim — they know him now.

The 17-year-old junior ordered 500 red roses and had them delivered to nearly all his female classmates on Valentine’s Day.

A card attached to the roses said, “To all the lovely ladies of 2007, here’s wishing you a Happy Valentine’s Day. Affectionately, Paul Kim.”

He said he used money he had been saving since his birthday in December to pay for the roses, which cost about $900.

“To me, Valentine’s is a special day,” Kim said. “I realized that not many girls would get anything and it would be an ordinary day. I figured I’d take the initiative and put a smile on their face.”

Sara Farinelli, 16, got her rose during her math class.

“I don’t know who this kid is, but he’s sending everyone a rose,” Farinelli said. “I think it’s a cute gesture.”

Kim’s estimate on the class size was slightly off. There are more than 600 girls in Cypress Bay’s junior class.

He said he got the idea Friday, when he saw the Business Professionals of America club was having trouble selling flowers as a fundraiser.

Feb. 15 - KGO - Hundreds of people celebrated Valentine's Day with a good smack-down in San Francisco.

Talk About This Story
A massive pillow fight took place Tuesday night at Justin Herman Plaza. A web programmer who found out about similar events taking place around the world organized it and spread the word online.
It got a little rough at times, but it was all in good fun.

Meredith Houston, Dublin resident: "Someone whacked me in the nose and whacked me in the eye. I mean, [it's] nothing worse than what my brothers did to me when I was a little kid."

Rich Sucre, San Francisco residents: "She's the hardcore one. She lost her glasses, she lost her shirt -- her shirt popped right open."

Nicole Steele, San Francisco residents: "Obviously I found them."

The guy who organized the pillow fight stayed late to clean up all the feathers.

I always miss out on the good stuff!
