Twitter Challenge

"Worst Valentine's Date Ever" Twitter Challenge on now!

Today, we're joining forces for Valentine's Day with Canadian authors from Harlequin and comedian Debra DiGiovanni.
V-Day may be upon us, but you won't find us at the Leonidas Belgian chocolate counter. You won't find us in the card aisle. No, you'll find us on Twitter, laughing at your snarky tweets with Canadian authors from Harlequin (@HarlequinBooks) and comedian Debra DiGiovanni (@DebraDiGiovanni)!

Between 10 am and 6 pm ET today, Valentine's Day, we want you to tweet on the following theme:

Describe the worst Valentine’s Date ever, real or imagined, in a single tweet. #worstVDAYever

Chad wanted to finally show me his true self. Unfortunately that came with a closet full of Snuggle Bear costumes. #worstVDAYever  

I thought my blind date was taking me out for dinner, but it turns out he has "more than enough to eat at home." #RobFord #worstVDAYever

Your tweet must include the hashtag #worstVDAYever.

All day long, Canadian authors from @HarlequinBooks will be monitoring the hashtag #worstVDAYever and interacting with tweeters. Read their perfect love scenes just for Valentine's Day.

Our judge

You may know her from "Video on Trial" or CBC's "The Debaters": it's the whip-smart, extremely snarky, unlucky in love, multiple Canadian Comedy Award winner Debra DiGiovanni, people! (Twitter @DebraDiGiovanni). (She's even been called "the best comedian to see after a messy break-up.") Want to really impress her? Read her thoughts on what she'd do on a dream date with 5 comedy writers, including Tina Fey and Rick Mercer.
