What are your Valentine's Day plans?

For those of us fortunate enough to celebrate the holiday falling on February 14th that is NOT Singles Appreciation Day (though I respect all those who do celebrate SAD, I'm usually there), what are your plans?

I've already given Colleen a little "pre-Valentine" gift, it was a little stuffed Miaka doll (character from anime Fushigi Yuugi). The big present is a really nice edition of Lady Murasake's Tale of Genji a medieval Japanese book. She's read about half of it before, I'm not really sure how much she liked it. But she's got a huge interest in Japanese culture, (she did live there for four months and has been interested her whole life), so I think it suits her.

The actual Valentine's Day date is going to fall this Saturday, since we have play rehearsals on Monday and after that I'm on duty (Resident Assistant in my dorm). So Saturday we're going out to eat at this restaurant in my home town, and then out to Blackfriar's Playhouse (only replica, I believe globally, of Shakespeare's indoor playhouse) to see "the Tamer Tamed." It's a sequel to the Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew," so I figured it's a good choice because it's both lighthearted and has a feminist edge she's sure to enjoy. I did promise her last time we went to the theatre that this time we'd sit on the stage, so I bought stage seats. Guy who sold them to me told me I was a brave man. But I can handle the interaction with the actors if it makes her night that much more enjoyable.

After that, I guess we'll just come back to my room and chill. I do of course, plan on doing the standard showing-up-at-her-door-with-flowers-and-chocolate, mostly because I don't think either of us has really gotten to do that before. Then I guess the gifts and cards will be when she comes back here, so that we can sit and talk and you know, just have "us" time.

I've spent WAY too much money on this stuff for a broke-ass college student. Like 100 (thank god for sales, it would have been closer to 170) bucks on clothes (new shirt, black V-Day boxers, silk tie, and new pants). 38 for tickets (would have been 50, but I know the guy who sold me the tickets, he got me a little off), I'm estimating around 50 for the food where we're going, 10 for the doll, 40 for the book (would have been 60+ if not for Amazon), and whatever I spend in flowers and chocolate (can't go top dollar here, but I'm not going to get crap either.)

I just hope she has a good time. Valentine's Day is something i'm usually really cynical about. But being with someone you really care about does in fact give it some meaning.

For those curious, here's a preview of my outfit. You can't see here, but the pants, shoes, belt, and socks are black. The boxers are shiny black and red. She also likes me with a thin beard, so by Saturday it should be set.

I do wish I had a classy-type leather jacket to wear with it, though.

Here's my plan:

1. I'm going to work
2. I'm going home
3. There is no step 3.

Since this will be my first Valentine's Day alone in five years, I'll be hanging out with my NEW boyfriend Jack Daniels.

Seriously UL, have a great time. Sounds like Colleen's a very lucky girl!

I'm babysitting.

Other than that, I've not yet been apprised of my plans.

My plans are to go to school, shield my eyes from all the PDA in the halls, come home and pig out on chocolate.

spiffy shirt, Unforgettable Lemon! it reminds me of the "I never say fabulous fabulous shirt" on Sex and the City.....

There is a basketball game at NU on Valentine's Day, so I will be going with a friend. Last year, they gave all the female students Valentines signed by the players....heehee. Then perhaps I'll be toasting my singleness with a pint of cider.

Same, only for Step 3 I'm penciling in a date with Marc.











Oh hell, I used a permanent marker, who are we kidding?

Here's hoping that Marc shows you a wonderful time and that your Valentine's Day will be energized! Something about that symbol and this post ....
