    God how I hate this day more than any other. I
    hate it more than tax day. I hate it more than
    Canada Day.

    I hate it.

    I'm getting the brush. Again. Right before
    valentines day.

    Out of six women I have dated, half now have
    kicked me to the curb right before valentines
    day. This makes it twice in a row, actually.

    Well, maybe I am not officially kicked to the
    curb yet, but it seems to me that if a person is
    interested in you, they return your calls and
    remember who you are on the phone.

    At least have the common courtesy to tell me
    you anin't interested anymore.



    No, I am not drunk, nor am I getting drunk,
    although that bottle of brandy on the shelf has
    been staring at me for the past while. This
    weekend, perhaps. What else am I going to
    do?

    Damn it. Damn it damn it damn it.

    here comes that old numb feeling again.


By J on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 01:02 am:

    Sem,if Cat's too old for you then forget me,but I love you.


By Cat on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 02:06 am:

    Where did he say I was too old for him? Waaahhhhh.

    I'm divorcing Sem when I'm 38 now.


By Hal on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 03:29 am:

    This holiday... can eat my cock...

    I've been single EVERY valintines day, and this one will be no different.


By Spider on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 08:35 am:

    That's not why you should hate this day.

    You should hate this day even if you had a girlfriend, even if you had the perfect marriage with the perfect person.

    You should hate this day because people are making money off of love.

    That's the only reason you need.




By Fb on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 08:38 am:

    i doubt your cock will be getting ate then....unless you go see lingh-longh, fucky-sucky five dolla, long time, short time, it no matta


By agatha on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 11:47 am:

    i will not be single on valentine's day. i will, however, have a partner that is absolutely phobic about holidays, and is particularly hateful of valentine's day.

    last year i got him a little glass frog prince.


By pez on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 12:22 pm:

    valentine's day--- i'm going to do whatever i want, and to hell with the marketers.

    i think valentine's day should be spent in honor of those around you that you love. it doesn't have to be a significant other.

    hang out with your friends, take care of yourself. try to do an extra good deed for the day. realize that you love the world, you love your friends, you love yourself.


By patrick on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 12:31 pm:

    fight the power pez!!!!

    i fucking hate valentines. its like a trip to the dentist. I dred it.

    but i tend to stress and freak easily.

    the wife's birthday is today so im already in the giving mode.

    im officially screwing a 30 year old. thats weird.





    sem the downward spiral starts with you and no one else. bub. i'd strongly suggest not staying in with that bottle of brandy. get out, drive somewhere. do something.


By J on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 12:59 pm:

    A bit of advise,Patty from somebody well past 30,the 30th birthday was THE most traumatic birthday of my life,for the love of God,don't rub her nose in it.


By patrick on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 01:02 pm:

    no need to rub her nose.

    she's doing it herself.

    the party we are having was her idea.

    no. not rubbing her nose. more like powdering her ass.


By Fetidbeaver on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 02:02 pm:

    women don't hit their sexual prime 'till their 30's. you may not be able to keep up patrick. oh also (no bullshit) i have a dentist appointment on Valentine's day.


By patrick on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 02:05 pm:

    isnt that a myth?

    is a woman's ideal reproductive period, supposedly in their early 20s, the same as her so called "sexual prime"?

    in men, it appears they are one in the same, is this not the case for women?


By sarah on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 02:06 pm:


    i've never celebrated valentine's day before. it's a dumb holiday and spider's right - it's just a twisted way for people to make money off of some retarted and unrealistic view of what love and romance ought to be.

    that said, tomorrow i'm going to make kevin's favorite bbq meatloaf for supper (his mother's recipe), along with asparagus (not because it's supposed to be an aphrodisiac, but because it's is his new favorite vegetable - besides, i'm having my period anyways), and a polenta dish i've been wanting to try for a while.

    i'm also going to make creme brulee from scratch, because a friend bought for me for xmas the baking ramekins i wanted so badly, and i want to try them out. it's also kevin's favorite dessert. for me i'm making a small fudge cake from scratch.

    for the record, kevin and i agreed that no candy, flowers, greeting cards, or other gifts shall be bought for this occassion. it won't even be an occassion, only an excuse for me to take time to make a nice dinner and eat lots of dessert.




By Fetidbeaver on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 02:25 pm:

    no it's not a myth, you'll find out. i have been with more than one 30+ and have come to the conclusion that God did it as joke. 18 yr old boys should be paired up with 30 yr old women. second thought, that may be hazardous due to the excessive friction/heat generated. wait a minute maybe that could replace nuclear energy.


By Cat on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 03:16 pm:

    I concur that Valentine's Day is a crappy commercial event yada yada love ain't for sale and lalallalalal.

    But I got a card :D And it's really special because it's from someone who would abhor VD from the bottom of his beautiful black heart. That he would put himself through looking at all the tacky cards with vomitous roses and crap, makes me smile.


By sarah on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 04:23 pm:


    wow, mark thomas really is a man of many surprises.




By The Watcher on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 05:30 pm:

    I only hate Valentines Day because that is the one holiday I can never remember.

    Also, it takes forever to find the right, or at least exceptible, card.


By heather on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 05:55 pm:

    exceptible, hm. could be an interesting word.


    i mostly think about elementary school, decorating paper bags to hold the scribbly punch-out valentines.

    i always felt bad when someone [who maybe didn't know me very well] would show up with something like a stuffed bear with hearts on it- i'm not very good at pretending to like things like that. i am not a historically appreciative person, i hope that's changing.


By semillama on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 06:08 pm:

    How cna you not remember valentines day
    when its CONSTANTLY SHOVED IN YOUR
    FACE EVERYWHERE.

    My boss just got some flowers from his wife
    which included a cd with Burt Bacharach
    songs on it. BAAARRRFFFFF.

    ARRRRRRGGGGHHHHHHH.

    It's like being a jew on christmas! Fuck you
    rudolph!


By Nate on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 06:59 pm:

    ah fuck.


    anyone need a teddy bear with hearts on it?


By Cat on Wednesday, February 13, 2002 - 07:13 pm:

    "wow, mark thomas really is a man of many surprises."

    You heard about him sending Dave three dozen red roses with 13 inch long stems huh?


By pamela on Thursday, February 14, 2002 - 12:25 am:

    I do! I need something... I haven't been single for the past 4 Valentine's Days and I have yet to see one single Valentine's Day gift. For some reason he's always really busy during this week in February and he always forgets.

    It didn't help that half the women at work were flaunting huge bouquets of roses that their beaus bought for them (I wouldn't be surprised if half of them, they bought for themselves). Why do I even care? I have a husband that loves me, whom I love very much, but for some stupid ass reason I want the traditional bullshit Valentine's gift.

    Actually, in all honesty, I would just prefer for him to be here. Work sent him out of town for Thursday and Friday, so he left tonight since it's a long drive. It is just so my luck that I get to spend this stupid holiday alone and very sick AND I get to try and take care of my son all by myself (which normally wouldn't be a problem, but with the strep, I'm not really up to it).

    I was going to have some friends over while he was gone, but now that I am sick I just don't feel like it. I miss him a lot.


By moonit on Thursday, February 14, 2002 - 01:15 am:

    Guess how many valentines day presents were waiting for me at home.

    Go on guess.























    None! Yippie!


    I have wine, choccy cake, and new episodes of my fav show that haven't screened here yet. What more do I need?


By pamela on Thursday, February 14, 2002 - 01:24 am:

    Strep Throat?


By Nate on Thursday, February 14, 2002 - 01:35 am:


By pamela on Thursday, February 14, 2002 - 01:50 am:

    awww, thanks Nate... I feel lots better now. :

    I knew I could count on you.


By heather on Thursday, February 14, 2002 - 01:54 am:

    A-HA!!!


    no one should ever deny my intuition

    never

    ever


By pamela on Thursday, February 14, 2002 - 01:57 am:

    I will never doubt you again...


By Fetidbeaver on Thursday, February 14, 2002 - 10:38 am:

    Teddy Bear Bombs, hehehe
    i think this guy was pulling one of my gags. what terrorist would buy all those items at the same time? it smells like my apples,carmels,popscicle sticks and razor blades purchase on Holloween gag.


By crimson on Thursday, February 14, 2002 - 11:33 am:

    does anybody celebrate st. valentine's day anymore? not the commercialized hearts n' flowers crap, but the religious holiday...the actual feast of st. valentine, the guy this whole shindig is supposed to be in honor of?

    just wondering.

    i'm getting zilch for VD this year & i truly don't give a rat's ass.


By Oswald Jr. on Thursday, February 14, 2002 - 12:03 pm:

    I am geting tons of shit for Valentines Day. But thats cause I am cute and stuff. Ha. I am going out for dinner and I got candy and flowers and other coolies. I rock.


By patrick on Thursday, February 14, 2002 - 12:16 pm:

    any jerk who says "he forgot" Valentines should be flogged.

    Its one thing to disagree with it and avoid it, but to say you forgot is moronic.

    You can't forget it, its everywhere.

    I got a new 2 man "lover hooka" for V-Day last night and got blasted...thats my girl.

    last night i took her out to the fantastic italian caffe at the bottom of my hill. It was great, only 3 other tables were occupied. Everyone is saving it for tonight.

    We always get served well,its a family joint. Northern italian, served by a full figured, saucy, slightly surly italian 20 something who always guesses nico's perfume accurately. Her pop Rosario runs the show, and mama in the kitchen cooks it up.

    We had a lemmon/fennel/olive oil/ garlic insalate to start. Some tipsy chardonnay...i had pollo picata with spinach and she had the fettucini with a pink cream sauce and shrimp.

    we topped it off with two espressos and tiramisu that was absolutely, without a doubt, one of the best deserts i have ever had in my entire life.

    mama even came out to make sure we liked it alright.




By semillama on Thursday, February 14, 2002 - 12:55 pm:

    I am either going to the Breeders (if they are
    still playing) or watching wrestling and playing
    my guitar.

    That's the extent of my plans.

    One of these years, maybe this day won't
    leave me feeling so sour.


By patrick on Thursday, February 14, 2002 - 01:03 pm:

    go to the breeders. go with a bloke and have fun man!!!!


By agatha on Thursday, February 14, 2002 - 02:15 pm:

    yeah. tell tanya hey.

    i used to go to her barbeques in rhode island.


By patrick on Thursday, February 14, 2002 - 02:16 pm:

    i got busted for pot at a Belly show by Chapel Hill PD.


By pez on Thursday, February 14, 2002 - 04:37 pm:

    i'm going to a potluck and film screening. after i go on a v-day bike parade ride.

    tomorrow i'm going to a show and a valentine's day after party down in southeast. i feel popular.


    i got a card from the 'rents with $10. i'm going to use it to get some rca cables so i can start fooling around with my various audio equipment and do something cool on my rediculously lo-tech stuff.

    bah. happy v-day, lovers! send me an email and i'll send you a card (i think i've lost all the email addys i had).


By semillama on Thursday, February 14, 2002 - 05:21 pm:

    They're sold out. Figures.

    That's it. I'm going to eat pizza tonight and
    watch the Young Ones. Then I'm going to
    watch wrasslin and drink mead.


By Dougie on Thursday, February 14, 2002 - 05:41 pm:

    Young Ones? Is it televised, or do you have video tapes? I must get those episodes. I remember looking into getting Alexei Sayles videos a couple of years ago, but couldn't find them.


By semillama on Friday, February 15, 2002 - 05:09 pm:

    Try Amazon.com. That's where I got mine.
    Although due ot copyright reasons, a couple of
    the performances had to be edited out (The
    Special's (or was it Madness) cover of
    Subterranean Homesick Blues, for example).

    Gods that series was strange.


By moonit on Friday, February 15, 2002 - 11:12 pm:

    or blackstar.co.uk


By wisper on Friday, January 16, 2004 - 12:19 am:

    aww, you guys, look at cute little grumpy Sem up there at the top.


By moonit on Friday, January 16, 2004 - 03:34 am:

    This valentines day I am throwing a baby shower for Sharon. She's the first of our close mates from hs to get pregnant.

    I'm not sure if its going to repel me or make me want them.


By semillama on Friday, January 16, 2004 - 10:41 am:

    I still don't like Valentine's day. Thank GOD Kazu doesn't like it either.


By sarah on Wednesday, February 11, 2004 - 12:38 pm:


    dave is being so cute and trying to make special plans for saturday night. he wants to go out for a fancy meal, but i'd rather stay in and cook. i'd like to get flowers, but i always like to have flowers around. other than that i could care less. last weekend was so great, i doubt there's anything romantic we could fabricate for this weekend that could even remotely compare to the organic romance and sweetness of the time we spent together last weekend.

    i am, however, going lingerie shopping in the early afternoon. i haven't splurged on any nonsensible bedroom garments in, literally, years.



By kazu on Wednesday, February 11, 2004 - 03:14 pm:

    this weekend is my birthday weekend as far as sem's
    visit is concerned. we are going out for dinner
    tomorrow, I didn't even consider trying to get a
    reservation for Saturday. I'd just assume cook then--
    maybe a new recipe from one of my fabulous new
    cookbooks--and avoid other couples.


By J on Thursday, February 12, 2004 - 10:42 am:

    Happy belated b-day too kazu,don't you do anything I wouldn't do:)


By wisper on Thursday, February 12, 2004 - 06:07 pm:

    that doesn't narrow it down!


By patrick on Thursday, February 12, 2004 - 07:00 pm:

    im fucked. nico's BD is tomorrow.

    i tried to get Bowie tix for last sat...then my granddaddy died on friday so we would have missed the show anyway. Tony Bennett is at the new disney hall tomorrow, but because we spent an assload of money on airfare to get back to atlanta we have no money.


    cheap wine, oral sex and some wildflowers from the yard for this BD/V-Day







By Rowlfe on Thursday, February 12, 2004 - 07:16 pm:


By Rowlfe on Thursday, February 12, 2004 - 07:18 pm:

    wow, and this isnt going to help people charge against gay marriage either...

    A"fter Martin, 83, and the 79-year-old Lyon were declared spouses for life, three other couples were lined up, awaiting their turn to take marriage vows. "

    83 and 79, and have been married over 50 years....

    I can see how this is a threat to the sanctity of marriage. Yep.

    HA!


By Rowlfe on Thursday, February 12, 2004 - 07:18 pm:

    shit, not 'married over 50 years', 'together'

    bleh


By Nate on Thursday, February 12, 2004 - 07:35 pm:

    i love the sf bay area.


By Rowlfe on Thursday, February 12, 2004 - 07:37 pm:

    I was wondering how long it would take for San Francisco to just up and say "fuck you, we're doing this"


By Rowlfe on Thursday, February 12, 2004 - 07:37 pm:

    PS Nate, you are missed


By LOVER OF ST VALINTINES on Thursday, February 12, 2004 - 08:07 pm:

By Rowlfe on Thursday, February 12, 2004 - 08:08 pm:

By J on Friday, February 13, 2004 - 02:15 am:

    There you go,why shouldn't they have been getting the tax breaks,50 some years as a tax paying couple,don't people get it?Fuck no,it's sad.


By sarah on Friday, February 13, 2004 - 01:35 pm:


    patrick, i'm sorry to hear about your grandfather.




By Lapis on Friday, February 13, 2004 - 02:13 pm:

    Happy Valiumtimes Day.

    Tomorrow's the annual Valentine's Day Massacre ride and I've got my nickel back. Roll, Jennie Jenkins, roll.

    Oh no!

    I'm sorry about your grandpa, Patrick.


By patrick on Friday, February 13, 2004 - 02:21 pm:

    thanks guys.

    nevermind.


By J on Saturday, February 14, 2004 - 03:40 pm:


By Nate on Saturday, February 14, 2004 - 11:38 pm:

    i delivered flowers today for my friend's florist. it is the best job ever.


By Blackeangle on Wednesday, February 18, 2004 - 03:14 am:

    Fuck V-day, yeah fuck it. I FUCKING HATE Valentine's Day, and St.Valentine.


By NOOLDCHICKS on Tuesday, January 25, 2005 - 04:11 pm:

    Women are like Cars... After 30 they should be traded in for a new Model.... (preferably under 25)...


By Dodi on Wednesday, January 26, 2005 - 12:10 am:

    We say the same thing about men...so move on..


By Dodi on Wednesday, January 26, 2005 - 01:35 am:

    ..(preferably bigger, that could last longer)...


By Gee on Wednesday, January 26, 2005 - 10:35 am:

    Hey! What's wrong with Canada Day?!


By wisper on Wednesday, January 26, 2005 - 08:33 pm:


By semillama on Thursday, January 27, 2005 - 10:18 am:

    It's humor. I have personally nothing against Canada Day.

    Sssh...don't tell Bush you have Canada Day, though. If he finds out, USA Day of Eternal Patriotism won't be far behind, and it WILL be enforced.

    that being said, now I will hear about this from Kazu, who likes to tease me about things I said before I met her as if they were still applicable.


By Isabel on Wednesday, February 2, 2005 - 09:58 pm:

    My advice too all of those who hate Valintine's day is.

    Never frown even when you are sad,
    Because you never know, Who's falling in love with you're smile !!!

    A 50 year old ......


By agatha on Wednesday, February 2, 2005 - 10:11 pm:

    Holy grammar and spelling, Batman!


By wisper on Thursday, February 3, 2005 - 12:44 am:

    Oh agatha, we all know you hate Valintine's day.


By moonit on Thursday, February 3, 2005 - 05:32 am:

    Not that I'm into Valentines day - I worked out AndyPandy is working nights that Monday, my birthday and his birthday. YAY SHIFTWORK.

    I want to spend my 30th on my own. Not. I think you all should email him and convince him to take the day off and spoil me plenty.

    (I know its not till August, but that gives him loads of time to PLAN).


By Gee on Thursday, February 3, 2005 - 11:54 am:

    Speaking of birthdays, mine is the 14th. See how well this ties into Valentine's, too?

    Happy birthday to me! in advance!


By J on Friday, February 4, 2005 - 02:08 am:

    On the day that Gee was born the angels got together and decided to create a dream come true...
