Happy Valentine's Day!


This is going to sound crazy to most of you, but I love Valentine’s Day and I’ve never had a romantic one. I do hate the idea that people are required to show their lov-ah special attention but I do love all the hearts and flowers and sparkly stuff.
Of course, maybe I like it because I’ve never had a romantic Valentine’s Day. If you don't expect anything, you can never be disappointed. Hey, it works for me. I don't live in denial, I thrive in it.
Anyway, HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY, my sweethearts!

It ain't all it's cracked up to be. Last night I went all the way, flowers , cooked dinner (prawn tacos - good if I do say so myself), special treat from the Polish shop, champagne and you know what my nearest and dearest said to me? "You forgot Valentine's Day three years ago!" Damn, I'm gone for all time.

Ah, romance ain't all it's cracked up to be. Happy Valentine's Day, Laurie!

Just passing through...
Happy Valentines Day..
I'm divorced, don't get romantic Valentines anymore, but then the upside is I don't have to live with her anymore! Fair trade!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

I know I get cynical on this topic -- but the truth is, I'm a closet mushball and I love any reason to celebrate anything!

well that was supposed to be a heart to wish you happy valentines day but it didn't post how I typed it. Oh well!

Peter said...

I guess I'm another one of the cynics Laurie, there are a lot of us around, happy Valentines Day.

Peggy said...

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Sylvana said...

I have always thought of Valentine's Day as a day of all love - not just lov-ah love. It was a day that I could cast aside my synical exterior to hug everyone I knew, and some I didn't.

Share the love!

Sylvana said...

Oh, I forgot to add how I spent my V-Day: helping with an on site audit at work.

lovely.

Laurie said...

Well Neil I would have taken my "polish sausage" back. Well I'm a girl but you get my drift. Women who have a thoughtful man and don't appreciate it should be shot a sunrise.

Baby sis

Laurie said...

Baby Sis - Why wait until sunrise? Of course, we're not talking about shooting her with real bullets. A sprinkling of nice astronaut pepper spray should do the trick.

Being that we were snowed in and broke, my wonderful wife was pleased with a tender backrub.

At least I think she was pleased...she could be plotting my death as we speak.

Uh oh.

I'm with you, Laurie! I bought myself some chocolate truffles for Valentine's Day. I am thinking that maybe the sainthood thing is a snow job for Valentine, and he's really a chocolate demon. We'll be exorcizing him for weeks!

Laurie said...

Grimm - Aw, that's sweet...unles she's plotting your death, I mean.

Laura - Mmmmmm...chocolate!
