Valentine's Day is actually my favourite holiday and I enjoy going to a romantic dinner with my SO. Sure, the crowds can be a bit much at times but there's nothing like treating my lady extra special for a day and seeing how happy it makes her (even if she will roll her eyes but deep down, appreciate the sentiment).

Maybe I'll change my tune as I grow older?

So is Jamie back from her anal tour?

congratulations, pablo escobar! biggrin.gif

A) turns out this paper I thought was due monday is due in april, which makes a lot more sense given the nature of the assignment. We were just meant to have the abstract and OPTIONAL annotated bibliography done by monday. Thats a fucking weight off.

 

B) the aurora was so unbelievably bright and the sky so ridiculously clear tonight that, even where I live downtown, it looked like someone was attacking the sky with bright green and blue paint. I don't care how many times I see it, that will never get old, and tonight was spectacular enough that some locals had their lawn-chairs out in the square.

 

C) bedtime, which means sleeps.

Ya'll realize every holiday is bullshit, right? I can say I agree with avoiding restaurants and a lot of the compulsive behavior due to marketing (must get this or that because she expects it) but it's pretty stupid to act all smart and call it a 'made up holiday' when every fucking holiday is 'made up'. They're all just excuses to do stuff -- I personally like to take advantage of that at times.

Your embracing being wallet-fucked every 8 weeks or so because you're compelled to indulge rather than choosing to, I guess.

That's precisely the opposite of what I wrote, though.

That's not entirely true. Some holidays are observed in celebration or remembrance of something important. It is hard to call those made up.

independence day is pretty real. Christmas has pretty weird origins, but if you believe you are celebrating a birth (and not some pagan stuff), then it is pretty real too.

That is different than Valentine's day or one if those holidays made up because "xyz demographic group doesn't have a holiday yet"...maybe they should do something holiday worthy then

I would submit the "pagan stuff" is just as real as the Christian stuff.
