    it's a empiralistic holiday artificially created by the card companies who's sole purpose is to make money. it's side effects include to eating into the hearts of those who has to be reminded that they're spending the day watching reruns of the "family guy".

    anyone spending the day alone tomorrow?

    I know how you feel. I'm going to spend my evening watching the All Star festivities, looking forward to the Slam Dunk Contest. I'd seriously rather be doing that anyway.

    I am, as I always have; but I'm pretty sure your explanation of Saint Valentine's Day is historically inaccurate and socially defeatist.

    Incidentally, something tells me all holidays: even Christmas, Halloween, and Thanksgiving, were originally cultivated and popularized to make money. Unless you think pumpkin and turkey farmers, and toymakers in feudal, peasant Europe never got overstocked near the end of the year.

    I just slept my new girl on Thursday for the first time, but I am avoiding hanging out with her on Vday. Strange how it works out that way.

    My wife thinks Valentines Day is stupid so we don't do anything. It really is silly. Being a guy, I really don't care either way. It's nice to not have to battle the crowds and waste money.

    I'm making plans for my Valentine's Day Massacre (not what it sounds like)

    NCAA Football 09 Online Dynasty vs the #2 team in the country, Bama. The guy controlling the team has a history playing against me. From what I remember in playing Madden, we always destroy each other. It just depends who starts getting the breaks and makes the other guy get frustrated to where he starts making more stupid decisions.

    That'll take care of part of the day, the rest, I'll probably work on setting up my iPhone on this windows 7 install. Need to transfer my music/etc. Fun.










    And I wonder why I'm single :D
