Matters of the heart

No, I refuse to get all slushy for Valentine’s day – just why people associate the slow and painful death of an early church priest with sweeping romance is beyond me and what idiot decided to make it the middle of the month two weeks from payday?? – but I passed this window in the British Heart Foundation’s charity shop, festooned with little paper hearts with messages written on them (I was tempted to write ‘lonely Aztec seeks warm, beating heart’ on one) and a big stand-up of one of animation’s classic ladies, Betty Boop. So a boop-oop-ee-doo to you all.
