wow, sorry, that heart looked much better in the preview.

I may have spent a few too many years on the force (and also died) but in my opinion, that heart logo is weak as hell. Look for McCoy to strike it down with furious power.

I used to &hearts the bottle but I haven't had a drink since that one assistant DA and I got in that car wreck. you know, the one who had that show on CBS.

I ♥ my wife! Let's just call a ♠ a ♠: I doubt a day's gone by that she hasn't want to smack me with a ♣. Still, she must have seen me as some sort of ♦ in the rough and married me anyway. Thanks, honey! I'd take a • for you!

I ♥ my cat.
When I was talking to my cat Adell earlier today I came to the conclusion she's the only one who understands me.... Anyway, we were talking about how nobody understands us, and how we were married in a previous life. Talk talk talk, we talked for like an hour. That's when I realized that I forgot about my macaroni and cheese, which I can now smell burning from my upstairs bedroom. WHY DID I HAVE TO BURN MY MACARONI AND CHEESE???? Everyone is out to get me, why oh god why?? Not only that, but it was our last box of mac and cheese so I had to put some chicken nuggets in the oven. I fucking hate chicken nuggets. I was livid, I wanted to go upstairs and burn my arm with the lighter I stole from my dad's truck. I decided not to, because in my time of need I looked down and saw my beautiful kitty. Adell just looked up at me with her soft, sultry eyes, and let out a comforting "Meow." What would I ever do without her? She completes me.
