Whether it’s Olympics or Valentines Day, it wasn’t a good week to put a ring on it
So what’s in the news this week? Well, the Olympics, of course:
The opening Olympic ceremonies was a 4 ring circus #SochiProblems

Cambridge comedian Scott McLaughlin appears in the 8 p.m. Feb. 27 show at The Comedy Studio, 1238 Massachusetts Ave., Harvard Square.
And, of course, Ellen Page came out.
Ellen Page already broke my heart years ago when she became a famous unattainable celebrity.

Speaking of broken hearts, we just survived another Valentines Day weekend. It can be a time of trauma and testing, as Somerville comedian Lillian Devane can attest:
Breakup tools: cigs, beef jerky, pills, suicidal showering, cornering acquaintances in stores, diff pills, booze, lies, renal failure

Hannah Foell, a Somerville improv comic and writer (see her Tumblr at Hannahs Are Particularly Good) might agree:
Niraj Shah, a Cantabrigian and regular at clubs such as The Comedy Studio in Harvard Square and ImprovBoston in Central Square (his website and calendar are here), can tell you Valentines Day is also a time for expressions of mad, mad love:
I got a candy heart that says "Marry Me?". You're coming on entirely too strong candy hearts.

And for bargain chocolate.
