    What a commercial holiday. How does a box of chocolates or a stupid card that you'll forget about in about a week express feelings of love better than, i dunno, actual love. Someone needs to stop this shit. Why do people care so much about it?




    And yes, my vday sucked ass.

    If you don't care about it why are you dwelling on it and getting so worked up?

    Valentine's Day is here because Black History Month isn't marketable enough to turn it in to a retail sales month. Each month has a "retail holiday" to it. Don't believe me?

    January - MLK
    February - Valentine's Day
    March - St. Patrick's Day
    April - Easter
    May - Mother's Day
    June - Father's Day
    July - 4th of July
    August - the only month without a "retail" Holiday
    September - Labor Day
    October - Halloween
    November - Thanksgiving
    December - Christmas

    It's only people like you who put so much meaning behind it that you in turn make it a crappy day for yourself. No pity.

    Yup. I'd hate Valentine's day too, if I didn't have a girlfriend.

    Oh wait...

    Fuck all that. My birthday's in August. I'm 12 for 12!

    But for those of you not taking me out to dinner, there's always "back to school" as your filler holiday.

    Just another day for me. Although when my buddy and I went out to get some drinks and food last night, the Maitre'd was confused on who gets the rose.

    For all those complaining of being single or whatever during Valentine's, think of it as a blessing for not having to remember February 14th as a special day to buy something expensive for your mate. After all, thats what birthdays and anniversaries are for anyways.
