Tell me you have ridiculous jewelry store commercials you can snark at, at least?

You know, it used to bother me, but not now. I have the feeling either you can feel bad about not having someone, and on the flip side, you can feel bad because you are stressed about impressing someone, or you can say "Whatever."

This reminds me: Can I tell the story of the threatening Valentine I once received?

Loving The Beatles I feel like you have to be somewhat of a romantic. Valentine's Day though is not my cup of tea. Whether I'm single or not it all makes me a bit nauseous. paul-mccartney

It's not scary. Not like that movie, anyways. Yikes.

 

OK, so in my high school, the last three years I was there, you could send a carnation with a note attached for a dollar. Even in high school, a dollar isn't much. And you know, I've never been *popular* but I wasn't thrown into any lockers in high school. So, imagine my surprise when one of those flowers is handed to me.

And then I read the note. And it says something like Mind your own business or stop hanging around where you're not wanted, something ridiculous like that. "From US."

So, it appears that at least two people scraped together 50 cents to write something and send it off to me. And again, back in high school, I was neither loved nor hated. I just existed. So if I don't know who they are, how am I going to feel burned? It was a bit of a wasted effort on their part. I mean can you imagine if it was a group of people? "Oh shoot, I only have a quarter! Do you have change for a quarter?"

I spent that day proudly parading the hallways in between classes with the one carnation I received.

Skye: Red and White remind me of the White Stripes. We should have a Jack and Meg Day in America.

LPWJCSHF: First off, I so desperately want to shorten or abbreviate your name even more but am too lazy to give it much thought or effort. If I could quote you, I'd comment that someone on another board I frequent is amsuing herself by imagining Godzilla crashing through the walls of the store during one of those stupid jewelry commericals. I think that's great.

Do you have a pretty common name? No one was acting weird afterwards? a-hard-days-night-paul-11, high school.

NO ONE was acting weird afterwards, and it was for me, first and last name. First name common, last not so much.

While I still remember it, I didn't even lose sleep that night over it. So whatever.

(That Valentine's Day story is awful. Poor kids, the karma they have to pay)

 

If it weren't for the fact that everybody tries to find me a date for Valentine's Day, I wouldn't hate it that much. I love to buy heart shaped lollipops for my students, (Actually I'm getting either 10 Things I hate about You or romantic karaoke songs to play in my class this year), and I decorate my classroom with hearts. But I truly hate when people try to find me a date.

 

This year I have a photo of this guy with a note saying "If you don't get him as my Valentine's date, don't even mention you have one". paul-mccartney

I hate it.  I've never had a date for Valentine's Day, so I don't get to do any of the fun things. Though, the discounted candy on the 15th isn't so bad. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

 Sorry about that... I guess I didn't know much about the forum to come up with an easier name. It does become a bit awkward. That other person is pretty much my hero now after giving me the tools to make it through. 

 

Your Valentines story is really amusing. I bet whoever sent it put so much time and energy (change for 25 cents is impossible!) into that and you probably ruined their day by not knowing who they were or being proud of your flower. a-hard-days-night-george-9

Oh Valentines day... The mushiest day of the year. It never really fit with me (except for free chocolate, my only weekness) and one thing I just CANNOT STAND around Valentine's day is the really, REALLY, annoying commencials that come on TV around the time. I swear the more they come on the more my head hurts from the cheesiness.

My mind is far away, off in Pepperland…

ARGH...still can't quote!

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Anyways, with 25 cents, you can make 2 dimes and one nickel, so if there were TEN of them (ha ha) then each could waste lots of time and effort finding a dime to put in. (I know there are easier ways; please don't ruin the absurdity of this picture.) 🙂

I'm sure I'll figure something out to call you. I know that sounds ominous, but it really isn't. a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

Meh. It's OK, because at school we get free candy! 😀 

I'm going to have to live through my first high school Valentine's Day. (Last year did not count, because in Utah 9th graders go to school with 7th and 8th graders. It's not high school.) At least there won't be any "Happy Valentimes Day"s.  

A Rendition of the Story of Valentine's Day:
Once upon a time there was a girl named Val who was in love with a boy named Tine. (You may be asking, WHO NAMES HIS CHILD THAT? Well, this is a story.) They gave each other cards on their shared birthday, and Val's cousin Jim named the day in their honor: "Van and Tine's Day." 

(It works better out loud.) 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Has anyone tried the new conversation candy hearts? They never tasted all that great to begin with - like lightly flavored chalk really- but now they're this kind of gross punch flavor. The blue ones are the worse. And you still can't read them. So they fail on both points. a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

Can anybody explain to me why this day means anything? It's a fail-day, not a holiday

I like the green and yellow hearts. Also, I enjoy receiving the aforementioned FREE CANDY!

I used to live nearby the Necco factory, and at least the air smelled good around there. The only good Necco Wafers were the brown (chocolate) ones.

I remember when "Fax Me" came out, and it was sort of a big deal. Wonder if it's still around.
