The One Where Nothing Would Say I Love You More


Bullshit holiday if there ever was one.  Valentine's Day was invented in a Madison Avenue hotel room during a three way between Hershey's, Hallmark and Frederick's of Hollywood after an evening of cheap cava, stale Tipparillos and all those left over marshmellow Peeps from last Easter.  Hell, even those three can't escape the afterglow of steamy hotel sex and sugar-coma.  And what's worse is they manage to spread their sappy sentiment to the rest of us who feel obligated to express to their loved one's just why they are so special. 

Just for today, not for everyday.

I don't want flowers.  Don't want the obligatory 'love note' about being soul mates or any of that bullshit.
(even though it's true -no really, its true..while I might be a bit snarky, and I am not totally heartless and wholly unsentimental..click the link, would ya?). 

You know what would tell me you loved me?

Listening to me when I talk;
really giving a shit about what you hear when you listen to me when I talk;
and responding to me when we talk so I know you're listening to me when I talk.
Follow through,
don't patronize me,
don't take me for granted,
don't take YOU for granted ,
and finishing what you start.

And not just today, but everyday. 


...okay, so a little blue box from Tiffany wouldn't suck either.  Just sayin'.

Crazy-sauce. I have my own lil vday blog scheduled and I have to edit it. My husband surprised me today. Hrmph. I think its fun for the kids. Candy. All that. But when you're old & married, its just another day.

The Nice One said...

LMAO. I am so with you on the listening, following through.

But....I will say. I would really like the card, or the flowers this year. Since I'm being abandoned....

Preaching to the choir once again sister. We don't do V day around here...unless sexual favors count.

Every year I tell hubs not to buy me anything and then I buy him something and get mad when he doesn't get me anything. Stupid Valentine's Day.

Em said...

Handmade cards from my two boys - that's all I want.

I'm too practical to have hubs spend $100 on some half-dead roses that will be $20 come Feb. 15.

And they say romance is dead!

(that three-way mental picture had me laughing - excellent)

HaHa! Well said! :)

Miz Dinah said...

Amen, sistah! It's the other 364 days that matter. But a little chocolate couldn't hurt... ♥

Justine said...

Hell, since I don't get ANY of that day to day crap, I was obligated to take Jimmy's offer of dinner out tonight. Other than that, I get nuthin'.

Justine :o )

14th Feb is in Bulgaria a vine-grower’s day when trellised vine are cut. So it’s VINE-DAY (still V-Day by the way) :)

Cheers! & Have a great V-Day by choosing the right V for you!

Oh, and another thing - your blog is nice:)

Amy said...

I agree...I've never been a fan of Valentine's Day and most likely I never will be. It's just another way for Hallmark to make a million.

for a different kind of girl said...

OK, I got flowers, but I also go a card that makes absolutely no sense what so ever to our relationship (the kind of card you know was grabbed and dashed with, but, ok again, it's the thought and all that...), but really, what I want to say is amen to what you're saying there in the end!

I gave my wife a card that read on the front 'Sometimes I wonder why I put up with you. The inside said 'Oh yeah, now I remember, YOU put up with me!'

An appropriate sentiment....

angie said...

I totally agree. A dozen roses one day a year doesn't say anything but sucker to me. :)

Happy VD....don't spread it around!

Fannie said...

Poor Valentine's Day! Bad rap all around the internets and I kind of like it!

Mariah said...

Valentine's day is bullshit! Chris and I didn't even say Happy Valentine's Day to each other and it was a fucking relief that to have to pretend this year.

I've been ripping songs off of videos using video2mp3 for a really long while and then a week ago, I got a computer virus--but I don't think it was from ripping but could it be? Also, if the songs are already on my iPod, does the iPod retain the virus as well yet is just unaffected by the virus? I saved all my music files on a flash drive before I reformatted my computer and I haven't installed any anti virus software yet--should I reload all my files or no?
