For reasons I can barely comprehend let alone explain, I am typing this from my kitchen. Here's some research I did earlier.

2003: Canine Cupid Killed in Jordan.

"Big Joe would run to the girl's house, stand outside the building and bark until she came out to take the letters and read them before sending replies. But the girl's brother had been spying on the couple. The suitor had been turned down by the girl's family three years ago because he was still a student and had no standing in society. After he snatched the marriage proposal from the dog, the brother became violent."

1998: The things we do for love

"It seems impossible to win in February's annual love lottery. If you are unattached, the day is a nightmare of anticipation. When all that is delivered is disappointment - again - your heart is filled with nothing less than loathing for couples and the Post Office in equal measure."

2000: Cupid's arrow misses the Welsh

"Welsh women are the least likely in the UK to have experienced love at first sight and Welsh men fare little better, according to a new survey. Statistics by the romance novel publishers Mills and Boon show only 29% of women and 32% of men have been hit by cupid's arrow."

Now back to the party. I wish I could get these damn Hollywood guests to leave. They're all on West Coast time and gawpingly awake. I suspect the Bolivian chap in the corner. I've got to get up in 2 hours!
