I have a bottle of sparkling wine in my fridge from New Years that I was thinking about drinking tonight.  Except for the fact that I have to work tomorrow and I don't particularly care to do that with a massive hangover.   :P

I know what you mean! I'm turning toward ice cream more and more often as my drug of choice because it doesn't have the hangover effect. Tonight it's salted caramel gelato. Mmm.

Aw, but it has other nasty side-effects!

Valentine's Day never bothers me.  I'm used to not being in a relationship (never have been) so it's no big deal to me.

Yeah, it's just another day for me, too.  The crowds annoy me.

Nope, just another day for me too. Although I don't have to work at my second job, so I think I'll just go home, and maybe watch a movie. And plan my post-valentine's day chocolate shopping spree :) - when its half off

I have always been anti Valentines day. Bless those who enjoy it, but I don't think it should take Hallmark telling my s/o that he should be getting me cards/flowers/candy on this day. I would much rather be surprised on the 25th of March or some random day just cuz he loves me.

Im the Valentines day Grinch. HAHAHAH :P

Just another day for me too.  Been avoiding watching any unrecorded tv, so I can fast forward through all the comericals.

This is so funny ... I was thinking about posting on our thread today as well ... you guys beat me to it! 

I went through the day in a rather "whatever - don't care" mood.  Can't really recall a good Valentine's Day - the last time I got flowers on this day, they were from a semi-stalker (ugh!).  I mostly ignore the whole thing on my own behalf while being pleased for those who have nice things/gifts/experiences thanks to the holiday.

General update:  I'm currently talking to a friend of a friend and am going out for lunch with him next week.  I do enjoy talking to him and he has a sense of humor, which is essential, but I'm afraid it's one of those "he's a genuinely nice and decent guy, but there's no spark" situations.  Guess we'll see.

I have a standing appointment on Thursdays that's half a block away from a Godiva shop, which was the busiest I have ever seen it.  I will have to claim my free chocolate truffle next week instead.

Half price heart boxes today... best thing about Valentine's Day.

I took myself out to dinner and bought a couple of magazines I'd been wanting. I did not choose a "date" kind of place, so service was just fine.

Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

A friend of mine sent me a unexpected box of goodies, with valentines from her children.  It was very thoughtful and sweet of them.

I'm heading out shortly to take advantage of those!  adn hopefully get some other "valentine" wrapped regular candy for work.

I am disappointed; Target had very little left, and it was only 30% off, and CVS was picked clean. I did manage to find several small, russell stover heart boxes, but i really just wanted one big one. co-worker is going to her CVS and promised to get me one if she sees it.  hahahahaha
