I have never received a valentine....thing, whatever it is you are meant to receive. I have 2 friends who have birthdays on that day, one is turning 50 and invited us to a party. Hub just took a booking for his band that night, so solo...again...if I go at all.
Someone locally has started a rose-growing business, they sell bunches for $5 and last year they put them out at $4 for Valentine's Day...I can't resist a bargain!!! I bought myself some for the first time and I plan to do that again. They were buds and slowly opened over the ensuing week, so colourful, so fragrant...$400 worth of pleasure, at least.
I have got all kind of mushy lately. I am currently scraping the paint off furniture AND the old farm house door on our bedroom(hope I don't get lead poisoning) I bought a can of pink paint very cheaply and a big heart made from plaited cane, which I think I'll hang on the door.. I plan to have that project finished on Valentine's Day and I am trying to decide what to write in script inside the heart. hmmmmmmmm???
Have you heard the song.."send me the pillow that you darlin' I can dream on it too.." It's an oldie. (Gosh I'm becoming a consumer).The other day I bought this tiny plush pillow with a silk tassle, that has "believe in yourself" embroidered on it. Hub told me how he is feeling lately and it made me cry.
So does seem like I have plans.

I like it! I like it!

I didn┤t like it until I got 20, though.

I don't know if I'll celebrate it myself...see the journal for further explanation on why V-Day is a major quandary for me at the moment.
and you hunger for the time
time to heal, desire, time

well even when i was dating someone i really didn't celebrate Valentines. i agree that it is a scam and you shouldn't take one day out of the year to say I love you and buy nice things for the love of your life.

I think I would like Valentine's Day if I had a valentine.

It was a lot of fun as a kid, though- getting valentines in class, candy, etc.

well I'm still going to paint the door with a message
I've just found out one of our local lads suffered a terrible injury in a sawmill accident yesterday. I'll send the flowers to his mother.

Valentines Day. Great. Just one more thing to remind me that I don't have a love life, along with my aunt who asks if I have a boyfriend every time I see her. And Valentine's Day isn't just one day anymore. I swear, they start putting up Valentine's decorations everywhere right after New Year's.

I agree. Its a conspiracy between the candy people, the card people, the teddy bear people and the flower people. I mean really, flowers are at their most expensive in winter. why do you think Valentine's Day is in winter?

I'm 25 years old. what am i supposed to do with a red teddy bear?

I have a boyfriend who I will not be seeing on Valentine's Day and I'm fine with that and so is he. If any of you want to borrow him, that's cool. I met him at a U2 concert so he's a good guy. Just make sure its ok with him.
