Happy Valentine's Day. whoo.

So Valentine's Day Cheer has barely manifest itself here at the office.

Seems hubbies aren't sending flowers this year.

Except one.

18 Red Roses in a cool looking vase.

One for each year they've been married.

And . . . . that's it!

No one else has received anything!

I'm not expecting anything this year.

Seems Valentine's Day is a universally hated, florist, teddy bear, and chocolate industry binge fest.

Since my birthday is right next to it, I'll settle for some conversation hearts.

I go out all year anyway, so why not on Valentine's Day?

Cuz I never seem to be with someone that would actually like it!

So what am I doing this year?

Covering a shift at the bowling alley.

Maybe I'll wear my 'All I got for Valentine's Day is this stupid t-shirt' shirt that I made for myself a few years ago.

While I'm serving beer to drunken bowlers I'll think of all you saps out to dinner and feeding each other dessert, then going home to put on a strip tease, course while wearing the skimpy red lacy lingerie he gave you that's 2 sizes too small but you feel bad saying anything so you squeeze yourself into it anyway straining a muscle in the process and tripping over all the skinny straps causing you to face-plant in the toilet breaking your nose knocking out some teeth and then almost drowning.

Moral of the story?

Cliche Valentine's Gifts = a trip to the ER

I agree that V-tine's Day is a Hallmark-esque load of crap that serves to make singles miserable for at least a week leading up to it and a few days afterward.

At some point in history there must have been the beginnings of a recession and the President at the time must have created this holiday as a way to get Americans to do their duty and binge on more crap they don't need.

If you love someone, you should be able to give them chocolate, roses, cards, or shrunken lingerie any day of the year...

Spontaneity is key.

On that note, I bought my girlfriend a single rose to present as a table dressing for the seafood dinner I cooked for her. (and I let her watch American Idol)

Nothing big, nothing bold... but even though I don't like or believe in the Day of Valentine's, that doesn't mean that she should suffer, right?

well that's sweet! I think that's a fantastic attitude to have about Valentine's Day!

You must share it with all the V-Day hating men out there.

lol 'let her watch american idol'?!

you're gross.

Yeah, I didn't really want AI on TV, but she'd just gotten home from a 12 hour day and I figured...

Hell, it's going to be over in 20 minutes anyway!

Then the TV went off and we just chatted for a while before bed.
