Hearts, Flowers and All Things Sickening and Frilly

Ahhh... Love is in the air today eh? As for me, I've already explained that Valentine's Day is not my favorite holiday because it never was good for me, and I kind of gave up on the romance of it long ago, and the actions themselves are overrated and forced...

Guys are usually under pressure thinking "If I don't get her something she's going to be pissed... I'll be in the doghouse." It doesn't mean much if you have to hint or to force someone's thoughts or actions... Mr. J is definitely no Peppy Le Pew, so If I am lucky I might get a note that reads somewhat like the following:

That's fine with me though, we do things together and share fun, laughs and love enough every day that I don't need anything special to commemorate a marketing-scheme like Valentine's Day... If it isn't in his nature to do things like that, then I would never want to force the idea into his head because it wouldn't be genuine. My most sacred and sentimental moments are when something is from the heart, and unexpected... something that is just on a whim... "Saw this today, and it made me think of you... here you go." You know what I mean.

(warning: fun use of word verification, proceed with caution)
However, I know that many other of you " s" still dote on this day as one where you expect great romance, and big expensive displays of affection from your significant others... That's o.k. too... I truly wish you all a happy one filled with everything you hope for... Sugar, Spice, Everything Nice... I sincerely hope all of your little overpriced dreams come true :)

And if nothing else, enjoy the chocolates for me. Since I'm officially "cutting" they're off limits to me... Good, fine, they're disgusting anyway. ;)

Goodnight auntie....

I had one of the best days of my life yesterday but it has nothing to do with Valentines Day. V-Day is definitely overrated. My wife and I don't acknowledge it.

I am one of the lucky ones!

As Caz is half Scottish she appreciates me gettin her nowt on'y day as it's rip off time. A couple of days after everythin' is half price or less so her Scottish side likes me waitin' a day or two. A hubby who's late n appreciated?! Magic!

we dont buy cards or gifts on valentines day either, we celebrate with lots of loving

Aunt Jackie said...

Blu, I love Dylan! Rock on... I have to report that my Valentine's eve was a flop-I had been to the dentist yesterday, and then Mr. J stayed on World of Warcraft until 11:00 p.m., and didn't even conjure up anything. I was less than pleased :(
Everyone else-thanks for the thoughts and glad to see you stop by! Lots of love, AJ

My wife and I both got off from work yesterday due to the ice storm so that was good.

Aunt Jackie said...

Must be nice--that is, as long as the electricity wasn't out... Maybe if the electricity went out, Mr. J could've gotten off his game long enough to spend some time with me though... Don't get me wrong-I play them alot and we play together, but last night was Valentine's night of all times and he couldn't even get offline. :(
