Well, HouStoned lived up to its name yesterday, and we completely forgot to post about a gigantic Hershey's Kiss that's plaguing passersby at the corner of Waugh and Hyde Park. Okay, actually it's not plaguing anyone — "delighting" would be a better word — but we figured the thought of a gigantic killer Kiss would be a better way to get your attention.
Anyway, the pink and silver Kiss was designed by Christopher McLain for his first project as the decorating chair of the Hyde Park United Civic Association, and although we've grown accustomed to other sights in that area, we do think the gigantic Kiss is a nice touch.
Happy Valentine's Day, everyone. And while we're at it, Merry Christmas. — Keith Plocek
