It's Valentines Day tomorrow (as if you didn't know), or as we like to call it around here, SUCKY EVIL SUCKY DAY! Are you expecting anything? Did you send anything? How are you planning to celebrate? Or do you just hate the whole occasion?

It's a great day to resell the flowers one gets and make some dough!

I hate the whole idea lots and lots, but because I have someone to celebrate it with, I might as well. How dare you call me a hypocrite? This time of year is quite lacking in other reasons to celebrate, so I might as well make the most of this commercialised bumph.
I bought a card for the first year ever, but sent that to one of my wives. (Cue: all other wives scream, "Why didn't I get one?" Zed = student. Students = broke. Therefore Zed = broke.) I'm planning to make Bryn one. The poem inside will have just the right mixture of sarcasm and sentiment:
Rose is a Red Zed is a Geen I love you, Bryn H******* Happy Hallowe'en!
Still debating what exactly to put on the front, though.

Well, it's valentines day 2001. It's 11.30am. I just got up. There are no cards waiting for me and even the ones that I sent to myself haven't arrived. How depressing.

it's a great big old sucky day. But i am going out on the town in Coventry this evening.... perhaps stepping on some hallowed Tim ground!

Valentine's Day = bollocks
Valentine's Day = VD = venereal disease
For those on the outside looking in, it's really Charlie Brown Day.

But it wasnt romantic, the wirter sounded deranged. Well thats Valentine's day. Tomorrow I should get my pre- arranged cards through the post. Hoorah.

I sent 3 valentines - one to Zed (hi Zed!!) one to my dad, and one as a joke to my best mate here. And amazingly, for the first time ever, I actually got a proper mystery one back! A Valentine's text message, a mystery card, a card and gift from Zed and, ahem, a piece of bread from a certain someone in halls. Yes. It was cool.

I must say I didn't get any cards or give any, but I was surprised to find flowers, chocolates, and Demeter's Sugar Cookie scent on my desk in the morning!
Flowers are expensive, for what some of those bouquets are going for I'd rather have a new pair of shoes. The sugarcookie scent, however, is priceless, I don't care much for the traditional valentines day stuff but bakery smells rock.
-- Kero (firstname.lastname@example.org), February 15, 2001.
I made sugar cookie conversation hearts with rude sayings such as, "Bite Me," "U Suck," and "Bad Touch!" Those went over really well at work, let me tell you.
Bah. Valentine's Day. I mock at that it represents (because I am bitter, heh).

you guys are all full of crap
-- bob bond (firstname.lastname@example.org), January 09, 2002.
I hate valentines day...I supposedly have someone that gives a crap...but all I got after a year and a half together and I am the mother of his child...is a stuffed animal with no card...no I love you's...not a night out...not crap. So, I would of rather been alone this year than being this insulted...so if you are alone, celebrate on my behalf:)

Valentine's Day is a load of BS! It was created by the candy and greeting card industries to fil the low giftgiving between X-mas and Easter! All those girls who are is couples make a big production about how their 'other half' is getting them something, and as if THAT'S not enough, they don't SHUT UP about it for WEEKS! In grades k-5, the teachers made everyone in the class give everyone else a v-day card in a vein attempt to make us all feel equal; this simple action leads to a hugh psychological let-down, and years of therapy!!! And that's why I hate Valentines day!

It absolutely blows !!!! I hate it !!! One freaking huge disappointment !!! I have never ever had anyone give a shit (until this year, or so I thought). I sent a card and something small and I got nada - not even an e-card !!! It BLOWS and I am never ever celebrating it again !!!
