Random Thursday: What I Love/Hate About Valentines Day

When I was teenager I would dream of the school's hottest dude giving me any sign of interest; a smile, flowers, a card telling me he can't live without me...you know, whatever.  Truth is it never happened. Doubt the dude had the brain capacity to think of anyone other than himself so it was all for the best. Gawd, I hated high school.

Moving on. The hubs and I don't celebrate Valentine's day. We acknowledge it but don't buy into all the buying of crap neither of us need. We're too broke for shit. 

Things that really annoy me about V-day are...

Stuffed animals. Ick. They're cute but if you're not 12 or under, you have zero use for them. 

Roses are red and beautiful but on V-day they're way too damn expensive. Instead of shelling out $80 for flowers that are going to die in less than a week how about you just hand me the cash. Yay, cash!

Crowded-ass-restaurants. I need my elbow room so even attempting to eat out on V-day is a huge no-no. Take out is the way to go, and not just because it'll be half the price.

Things I love...

Seeing and feeling the love in the air. I'm sure it's just in my head but it seems like people are a little more affectionate towards one another on this day.  I'm all for it, as long as the clothes stays on and I don't witness tongues flying. *barf*

Next week's topic: Movies I Hate To Admit I Loved...


  1. I am a sucker for this holiday, but for exactly the reason you like it- the feeling of love and just as a reminder to be kinder to each other! Stuffed animals, especially the freakishly giant ones are weird!

  2. I saw a commercial for a Vermont Teddy Bear for $100. What!? It's 4 ft tall. What in THE world?! I love this holiday for my kids...but other than that...nope, The Hubs and I are way to broke...and maybe cynical...to buy roses (they die) or cards (expensive paper that I'll throw away) but did I get him something? Yep. A small token of of loe. A bumper sticker.

  3. I always wonder...if someone buys you one of those giant (I'm talking three foot tall) stuffed bears, what are you supposed to do with it? I mean they're snuggly as all get out, but I have nowhere to store something like that! And I'm with you on the flowers. I'd rather get a small cheapish potted plant that will last, plus a bunch of chocolate. Mmmm, chocolate.

  4. I don't care about Valentine's Day either. But I do love stuffed animals. Even when there is no use for them. :) I guess I just love anything animal related. :)


I love comments!
