does that mean I'm not going to get any hugs? Could I pretend? Is that real days or shopping days?

No need to spend February 14 single and alone. All you have to do is knock some guy over the head. Once you've rendered him unconscious, you apparently can have your way with him! xoxo Poodles

Lorna - I'm sure you'll have hugs out the wazoo but you can pretend you're single to get extra. Any excuse to get a hug is allowed. That would be real days AND shopping days just to cover all bases.

Poodles - But he's so tall. I'll bring a ladder. Thanks for the tip.

I remember those days... they suck.

Happy VD.

Jen - Sorry you had some bad times but there is nothing sucky about being single if you have the right attitude.

Being single is mah-va-lous dah-ling.

Laurie: I have to agree with your comments to Jen, being single's not sucky. Besides, if you play your cards right you don't have to be single at closing time. Just remember to follow my mother's advice: "Don't tell them where you live and don't tell them your real name." Cindy

Freedom awareness day! Clean Slate Day!

Poodles-There are other ways to knock them unconscious that don't tempt brain injury, lol!
Besides, I prefer my men conscious when I am having my way with them, do you?

Ladies of Beaumont, please resist injuring any poor helpless single men!!! esp those I am fond of, LOL
(Laurie-the bigger they are , the harder they fall ;-) )

Personally, I think Valentine's Day is mainly for retailers to sell chocolate, cards, jewelry and sewing machines!!! Love or like have no particular dates on them, and one should treat those they care about as well as they can, regardless of the calendar.

I will part with this bit from Brigadoon:

"when lassies sit an' have no men,
Oh, how long becomes the night.

But I fear the night is longer when the lad's no' right."

Laurie said...

Cindy - I love that Las Vegas commercial where the girls say they're Laverne and Shirley and Lucy and Ethel, etc. It cracks me up.

Susan - "...when the lad's no' right." Boy, ain't that the truth.

A person being sad because they don't have a mate is such a waste of energy. When they do find the right person, they'll be sorry they didn't enjoy their single life more.

I have actually only been single on one VD since high school, and I was in the middle of an ugly divorce... naturally, I was a bit "anti-man" and had a Down With Love (cute movie) kind of attitude. I've never really been single long enough to develop the right attitude. That kinda sucks, but now that I'm happy, I would like to keep it that way! :)

Laurie said...

Jen - He's definitely a keeper.

Susan in St. Paul -- I prefer a conscious man. However, there are times when consciousness is optional!!!

Laurie -- He is pretty tall, especially to me. But if we work together, I think we can get him down and then take turns!!!

Laurie said...

Poodles - I don't mind taking turns but I want firsties and I don't want to watch. Too many rules?

Astrid said...

Oh, what a cute shirt! Do they sell it in DOUBLE too?

Anonymous said...

Oh come on. I've got to go first. What if I have to go home before I get my turn? You know Poodles turns into a pumpkin at 10:00 p.m. And don't worry,I sure as hell don't wanna watch! Eeek!Poodles

word: fknycf
"fuck no you can't cum first" (oh my, Poodles can be a bad girl)

Andrew said...

ARGH! Single Awareness Day! I had forgotten. It always sneaks up so quickly! Hope you are doing well Laurie, please tell J&M "hi" for me!

Laurie said...

Astrid - It looks homemade to me. I think I'll make one for myself.

Poodles - You get the prize for most pornographic word verification thingy. Congrats!

Andrew - Hello!!! I will tell everyone you said hi!!

Wow, Laurie, I've really outdone myself! Poodles

Susan in St. Paul said...

Congrats Poodles on your pornographic word verification thingy!
I think I will give it a try too, though I doubt I will do as well.

Laurie said...

Susan - Wow, you and Poodles seem to have a gift. I can see why Jack/Wang likes you girls.

Jack said...

So the choice if VD for Valentines Day or SAD for Single Awareness Day? Doesn't sound like much of a choice to me.

Laurie said...

Jack - Perhaps we should use Susans' suggestion of FAD (Freedom Awareness Day).
