    Alright, what are you all doing.

    I'll be cooking an elaborate meal and breaking out a bottle or two from the cellar.

    My wife asks for one thing and only one thing each and every year, a heart shaped box of chocolates, she is even willing to show me the shape with her arms as she says it lol. There is a huge Jewelery sale on this store we have purchased things at before up to %80 off so I think I will take her and see if she likes anything and we may not even go tomorrow, it is on until the end of the month, I have been planning to take her anyway even if it was not Valentines Day. It has never been a big deal for us, you should love your partner or spouse everyday and not need a day to show it. If I want to do something Romantic it is always a spur of the moment thing, this would be to much like planning for me lol.

    He sent me "Happy 13th of February" flowers today...to surprise me. We're going to make dinner together tomorrow, drink too much wine and have an MST3K marathon.

    I've never been a big Valentine's Day person...but whatever...it's fun :)

    I know Valentine's day in the US has a big cultural Hallmark bull**** thing associated with it, but at least it traces back to a pagan Roman holiday. In modern times I think it's both classic and cliche. I don't think there's any harm either way in how you side.

    If you want to boycott a real Hallmark holiday, do some homework on the most brilliant American propaganda architect in history...Edward Bernays. Back in the day he was working as an independent PR/marketing consultant and was contracted by Hallmark to devise a way of rejuvenating their sales. So he invented Mother's Day and Father's Day. They're not quite as easy to boycott.
