What nerds do for Valentine's Day

I spent so much time creating this (it's a scan, not a photo!) that I figured it's worth it to be my first-ever reuploaded image. It's gotten a lot of views since last Valentine's Day, and recently turned up on a blog about "12 Things to Do With Candy Hearts" or something like that. Enjoy it again, or for the first time...

***********

(2008 explanation) I sorted and counted all the hearts from an 18-ounce bag of Necco Sweethearts Tart Conversation Hearts. 497 hearts; 452 with 69 different messages (shown here) and 45 blank/misprints. I made up one here (it's a dumb pun/in-joke). Partly inspired by Nessa's "Candala"...
