cupid threw up on my blog

sorry for the overabundance of pink folks. but you only have to deal with it for 2 weeks. and it will serve as a constant reminder that suckday is coming up soon.

i hate valentine's day. i think it's stupid. i mean, if boyfriend and i had met on v-day.. or something romantic like that, i'd probably like it more. but in my opinion, it's just a day that is suddenly supposed to have all this meaning for no reason aside from the fact that it exists! stupid. i just really think that if boyfriend is going to go all out and be romantic and really put thought and effort into a day, i'd like it to be a day that really matters. a day that is truly personal to us... you know, like our anniversary! not valentine's day. BUT, to be completely contradictory, i do like it recognized. lol omg, i am a wacko huh??

with all this "i hate valentine's day" talk and then i say "but do something for meeeeee." but it's true. i don't want an overload of stuff. i don't want to go to dinner or have a super romantic night. but i do want something. just a small acknowledgement. a single rose. a freaking cookie the size of my head. just something. because i do something for boyfriend every year. nothing major or hardcore, but just a little something.

do you guys like valentine's day? do you do stuff for it? do you care if he doesn't do anything for you? am i the only wacko who hates it, but still wants something for it?!!

I booted out my ex-husband on Valentine's Day 2 years ago. Cancelled our dinner plans (which he made, but had no way of paying for), gave him the boot, and had a lovely bottle of Chardonney all to myself.

Ahhhh, Hallmark moments.

I'm really nonchalant in my feelings for valentine's day. Basically it is just a warm-up for THE GREATEST DAY IN THE HISTORY OF HUMANS, which would be February 16- my birthday. Which, btw, is a day that I totally love. LOL.

As for gifts, Adam and I are keeping it below $20. And I did buy my newest sweet, HugoMan, a duffel bag with his name on it. Simple.

You're funny.
I'm not all that crazy about Valentine's day either...We don't celebrate here...I save it for my birthday at the end of the month....That is when I expect lotsa lotsa love, gifts and diamonds.

I cannot stand V-Day. Ithink it's a friggin card store/retail store conspiracy from hell. We don't celebrate it..but unfortunately we have to do the whole V-Day cards for kiddos thing. UGGGHHHH!

My husband says it is a Hallmark invented holiday to sell cards but we celebrate because he knows that I LOVE VALENTINES DAY! Call me the whacko... but I really do love it. We don't exchange expensive gifts -just a little something for each other and for the kids and we usually go out to dinner. This year we probably won't go out though because we leave 2 days later for skiing.

It's alright, I guess. It definitely is a holiday for restaurants, florists and jewelry stores.

valentines day is for girls only and is stupid ,you always get in trouble if you don't send the roses to the work so the other hens can see you get them. if you have them at home it means nothing...FUCK VALENTINES DAY!!!!! this blog is more interesting when it is about brother jim....signed, brother jim

Your brother is hilarious. And he's right about the roses. My brother also refers to women as "hens" and it cracks me up every time. Ah, the visual.

I like Valentine's Day. :) It's fun and it's sweet. Chris and I usually exchange cards only (and maybe a Reese's Peanut Butter Heart, oh yeah) but I like getting a little gift for the kids. Any excuse to give my little ones a present is welcome. I love how they enjoy Valentine's Day and I actually like preparing all the little valentines for them to exchange with their classmates. Yes, I'm wacky too. :)

Ha! Your brother is funny too.

I agree with you exactly. Don't like it, but something must be done to acknowledge it or else! Nothing major. Just a small gesture.

Last year on the 13th my brother and I were in a shopping centre when he went over to look at cards. I asked him 'who you buying a card for?' he said his girlfriend as if this should have been obvious. I replied, 'why? Her birthday is in November.' 'Valentine's Day' he shot back. 'Oh', I said.

LOL I'd hang with your brother in a bar...almost as often as I'd hang with you babe but I digress...Valentines Day was always painful for me as a teenager. The schools always sold carnations for the guys to get their girls and since I never had a guy...I wasn't a girl with a carnation on her desk. That among many other differences made it yet another painful time so I hate it violently and in a pathological sense LOL. I think it's actually a cruel holiday. It sets the men up for near failure every time (unless they manage to pull a miracle out of their ass) and those that are alone (women - I don't get the impression that not getting a stuffed purple sparkley "Lil Devil" toy for their desk like the OTHER guys makes much of a dent in a single guy's day...)suffer needlessly with a reminder that THEY HAVE NOBODY. Still..husband catches flack if I don't get some sort of commemeorative schwag, mainly to heal old pain I think. We've decided to USE the holiday as an excuse "Hey kids sorry but you CAN'T come to the restaurant. It's VALENTINES DAY and a couple thing and Mommy and Daddy are going to have some WINE and eat with SILVERWARE off of PLATES. Enjoy tormenting the sitter..." It works for us.

Oh My Gosh I HATE V day... I would LOVE V day if it ended up being a stat holiday... but your right it was a holiday thrown in the mix because of how far apart Christmas and Easter are...

but like you I like my bub to do SOMETHING... I don't want him to spend money or to go to some crappy crowded restaurant... a hand written little love note is a great vday gift...
