Happy Anit-Valentines Day!!

A friend sent this to me (she got it from a blog) and I felt I just had to post it!!

I am contemplating running an anti-Valentines day contest in opposition to SmallWorld’s. Of all holidays that I detest (which really aren’t many) Valentine’s Day gets my all time Loath award. And it’s not because something awful happened to me which has scarred my romantic psyche. It’s because I think Valentine’s Day turns normal, average, reasonable women into neurotic, self-obsessed, whiney, piteous, crybabies. It puts too much pressure on them and it puts too much pressure on their poor unsuspecting husbands.
And no, Valentine’s Day does not affect ‘all’ women like that – it probably doesn’t even affect ‘most’ women like that. But I’m looking out for us underdogs….yep, I’m Anti-Valentining on behalf of all us ladies who tend to put more emphasis on a thing than there should be. It’s too easy to get sucked into a state of nervous expectation that says, “I don’t know what I want in particular, but that man better figure out what it is and do something that makes me feel like a Queen” God forbid the poor man who only comes home with a card, or… forgets. Burn him at the stake and then CHOP OFF HIS HEAD!
And it’s a bummer, too, because no matter how hard I protest and tell everybody in my family how much I hate Valentine’s Day, I still end up with a card, usually some flowers and some chocolate. Nobody ever listens to me. And Geoff only tells me, “I’m afraid NOT to”
So Happy Anti-Valentines to all of you fellow Antivalentiners

Too funny! I'm so anti- Valentine's also.
Well, we have a romantic dinner and exchange cards and that's it. All I want is to spend time alone with him, ya know?

I don't mind gifts but I much prefer practical ones, like pots or pans, or something fun to do like Guitar Hero this year. Sweets make me fatter and flowers wither and die. Plus time alone is always nice!!!
