It's my blog....and I'll cry if I want to

It's everywhere. It's cold. It's messy. It makes things difficult. I can't go where I want without running into it. I have to brace myself every time I leave the house. I can't even look forward to spring(training) without admitting that it's still in the way.

No, it's not snow (though it could be). It's something much, much worse:

Valentine's Day  

I'm so over it. Everywhere I go (even blogs) it's, "What should I give so-and-so?" and, "Where should so-and-so and I go for dinner?" and "I just don't know what I'll wear for my date with so-and-so!"

Yes, I'm bitter that I don't have my own so-and-so. Yes, I'm annoyed. No, I don't care. It's my blog - and I'll cry if I want to. So, I won't be writing about the-day-that-shall-not-be-named here. This is officially a V-Day free zone. For all other zones - here's a countdown til they should all be safe, too.

                                          Clock courtesy of - get yours free!


  1. So what are we doing that day? Fondue or shoe shopping? Both?

  2. Oh, you're the best. It's a Monday, so if you're free, both, either/or sounds good to me. :)

  3. I can be free after work. Where are we going to start for shoes? We'll talk about it Tuesday :)

  4. I am totally with you...there are some aspects of the day I find nauseating...but one time in the midst of my eye rolling, I was standing at a market and a guy bought every single one of his workers a bouquet of candy...telling the store clerk that everyone was going to get something! I thought that was cool even giving gifts to fellow guys in his office!

  5. Wow - that's a great story!! There are some good things about this day, I suppose. But this year - I'm boycotting. :)

  6. Its a stupid day!!! Why is it that on that day you have to tell someone there special... shouldn't they already know it!
