No, no, no. Not VD day - I meant Valentine's Day. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
Mrs. Tame will most likely be getting some jewelry. She may also get a rendition of "Lady in Red" from me (possibly while I am wearing my boxers with the big lips on the hiney that say "Love Machine"), along with some good luvvin'.<br><br><br><br>
I've even been practicing the song. So far, two of my neighbors dogs have taken their own lives rather than listen to me sing.<br><br><br><br>
I've never seen you<br><br>
Looking so lovely<br><br>
As you did tonight<br><br>
I've never seen<br><br>
You shine so bright<br><br>
I've never seen so many men<br><br>
Ask you if you wanted to dance<br><br>
They're looking<br><br>
For a little romance<br><br>
Given half a chance<br><br>
And I've never seen<br><br>
That dress you're wearing<br><br>
Or that highlights in your hair<br><br>
That catch your eyes<br><br>
I have been blind<br><br><br><br><br><br>
The lady in red<br><br>
Is dancing with me<br><br>
Cheek to cheek<br><br>
There's nobody here<br><br>
Just you and me<br><br>
It's where I wanna be<br><br>
But I hardly know<br><br>
This beauty by my side<br><br>
I'll never forget<br><br>
The way you look tonight<br><br><br><br><br><br>
I've never seen you looking<br><br>
So gorgeous as you did tonight<br><br>
I've never seen you shine<br><br>
So bright you were amazing<br><br>
I've never seen so many people<br><br>
Want to be there by your side<br><br>
And when you turned to me<br><br>
And smiled it took my breath away<br><br>
And I have never had<br><br>
Such a feeling<br><br>
Such a feeling<br><br>
Of complete and utter love<br><br>
As I do tonight<br><br><br><br><br><br>
The lady in red is dancing<br><br>
With me cheek to cheek<br><br>
There's nobody here<br><br>
there's nobody here<br><br>
It's just you and me<br><br>
It's where I want to be<br><br>
But I hardly know<br><br>
This beauty by my side<br><br>
I'll never forget<br><br>
The way you look tonight<br><br>
I never will forget<br><br>
The way you look tonight<br><br><br><br><br><br>
The lady in red, the lady in red<br><br>
The lady in red, my lady in red

we try to take a night out that night, <i>sans</i> rug rats. but it all depends on the availability of affordable (read: free) childcare.<br><br><br><br>
my dh has never really been that good at "romance". i married him for his brains and enormous...uh...<i>vocabulary</i>, anyway.

I hate Valentine's Day.<br><br><br><br>
I'm getting <i>myself</i> a few Tropical Source bars, renting some sappy chick-flicks, and curling up in a tiny ball on the sofa. If I curl up small enough, maybe I'll disappear.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Or maybe I'll just get drunk, cry, and call an ex-boyfriend or two.

I'm going to get myself some Newman-O's (which I haven't gotten in months) and hole up in my room, rereading some letters I've written.

I can't stand Valentine's Day. It's the epitome of a Hallmark Holiday. I know it has some history and everything, but still- today's version is a bit of a crock.<br><br><br><br>
I made a point this year of telling Trev not to get me anything, etc. I was in Ghetto-Mart and I saw all this red shiny crap I realised I had better mention it: "BTW, please do not get me any Valentines Day crap- I have no need for milky chocolates I can't eat, or sappy crap that you bought cause you had to. I'm not really planning on getting you anything, so don't get me anything."<br><br><br><br>
He was like, "OKAY, I will not get you any CRAP..."<br><br><br><br><br><br>
... that means he's doing something anyway. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:"><br><br><br><br>
We agreed that a poem or something was fine, but no commercialised crap. Who needs it?

i still haven't found those in stores yet.<br><br><br><br>
well i agree that Valentine's day is just a big commercial thing so we all spend more money on pretty things. but it's also an anniversary so i do celebrate it in a way. we're going out for dinner but agreed not to get any gifts. he'll probably get me a cheezy card as usual with some kind of butt joke

lol. well i keep telling him all i want is a backrub and maybe some vegan chocolate. that way if he ends up working v-day and we celebrate the night before, i can pig out. he can't be bothered though, apparantly vegan goodies are hard to find <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

i have no idea what i'm getting him.<br><br><br><br>
i did get a "i started to work on your present today...."<br><br><br><br>
i promptly asked if he had suddenly become a jeweler.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
but seriously, i don't think that it really matters, but i would like to have a nice date or something, since it is an excuse to do something kind of special.

likewise, that's why we go to dinner every year, it's not something we can afford to do often, and when we do it's usually with other people as well. so it's just an excuse to get him all to myself for a nice meal. once we're both working full time though it should be easier, as soon as he gets any amount of money saved up he usually takes me to a movie or dinner<br><br>
(usually a movie he wants to see and a steakhouse but oh well lol)

i've learnt after four years to just take whatever i can get!<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
j/k, seriously, my SO is really wonderful. but it is nice to have a reason to go out, no matter how much your logical brain tells you it's a stupid holiday!

my men will just get a lame card from me. i expect (well, dammit i do expect something) nothing from um, him. them, who the hell ever they are. maybe hot soccerboy will hang out with me on that dreaded day. wait, i think i'm going to some chalet with people i don't know. joyous-ness!<br><br><br><br>
the answer to the question,however - is no,i probably won't even send a damn card. i'm sick of putting forth all this love and thoughtfulness when i get **** in return. whichever one makes any of acknowledgement of the day gets bonus points in my book.<br><br><br><br>
nothing!

I kinda like Valentines Day. It's a great opportunity to show that special someone how much you are willing to pay as a token of your lurrrrrrve. Also, it's stalking-high-season. Sorry coffeeshop grrl, I believe the restraining order has a Valentines Day clause.<br><br><br><br>
Seriously, though, I like it when I have someone to emote feelings upon. Two years my woman said "just don't get me any gross flowers". So I had a gross of red roses (predicatable, but her unabashed weakness nonetheless) delivered to her office. 144 roses? Heck yes.
