Laser Eyed Pigeon of Love Valentines Day Printable!

Picture it, dinnertime- chicken and toasted ravioli. Sure, it's not "healthy fare," but the kids were happy and that's what matters. Somehow the conversation swings around to light bulbs. Light bulbs? Yes, light bulbs, and the wasteful nature of the warmth and wholesome glow of incandescent bulbs and the wonderment that is the efficient and passive aggressive maverick way to light your home, the compact florescent. This reignites the age old debate of Tesla v. Edison. Here's a hint- we're Team Tesla in our household. All discussions of Tesla lead back around, eventually, to his laser eyed love pigeon. You wish I was joking, I wish I was joking, alas, I'm not. Tesla loved a pigeon, and at St. Valentine's Day, it's always good to honor those who embrace the adage, "Love as thou wilt." So, on a lark, I decided to throw together a Laser Eyed Pigeon of Love design for her to hand out for Valentine's Day. I mean, who doesn't want obscure geek references for their Valentines cards? Really, it worked out well, because writing Valentines in Circular Gallifreyan was proving to be a much more complex task than I'd originally thought it would be. 

I considered using a great Tesla quote:

“I have been feeding pigeons, thousands of them for years. But there was one, a beautiful bird, pure white with light grey tips on its wings; that one was different. It was a female. I had only to wish and call her and she would come flying to me.
I loved that pigeon as a man loves a women, and she loved me. As long as I had her, there was a purpose to my life.”

Long story short, that was too many words and we wanted something less... heartfelt. Since it's a fun and simple design, I thought I should share the printable geekery. Feel free to distribute to those who would get a kick out of it, just, you know, don't sell it. That'd be tacky.

Just fit-to-printable-area and print on standard 8.5x11" cardstock.
