Subject: How will you celibrate Valentines Day ??
From: Wesley S
Date: 13 Feb 01 - 03:44 PM

You don't have to be in a "relationship" currently - everyone loves SOMEBODY. How do you plan to share that with them ? Are any of you sending valentines anonymously this year? Or is everything out in the open ??

For me it will be a quiet night at home { assuming that Brendan - our 2 month old son - allows it to be a quiet night }. I'll be fixing dinner and will give my wife some Godiva chocolates, a book , and a Victoria's Secret gift certificate. That way she'll wear what she gets. Not to mention a mooshy card and a few songs by candlelight. Then maybe a bubblebath later and then - who knows ??

How about you ?? Hmmmmm???? Share your secrets.

OOPS - that's "celebrate" - not celibrate.

And remember - you don't have to have a "special someone" to celebrate Valentines. Friends - family members - teachers ?

And NOT celebrating is valid too.

That would make some relationships a lot better. Now if we could only take the commercializm out of the rest of the holidays too and just give each other kindness and love and things that won't die or be discarded.

We have Valentine's Day everyday. Nothing special this year, but we are two lucky people and especially me. The "greatest thing to happen in my life" makes me the most fortunate man alive and I try to tell her somehow each day in thoughts, words, and actions, how much I love her and how much she means to me. A few good hugs from her, a warm embrace..........nothin' like it!

I wish everyone the same.

I really hate Valentines Day, for the same reason that I hate New Year's Eve.

I prefer to celebrate, give gifts, have a party etc at a time of my choosing, rather than on the a particular day that tradition / commerce has chosen.

However, I'm meeting my girlfriend for lunch tomorrow, and I'll bring a bunch of flowers. She'll be pleased, but I'd prefer to give here flowers on any other day.

Thanks Spaw. You summed it up perfectly. Ain't it grand?

If the mister brought home flowers and chocolates, he'd be strung up in short order. Luckly for him he knows exactly how I feel about that sort of comercialized pressure to 'perform' on Valentine's Day. I'd rather have him brushing the snow off of my car and making me a cup of tea all for a little nuzzle under the chin, than to live ignorant of each other and try to make it up all on one day of the year.

I wish you all a little bit of love every day. You've more than likely got it already, you just need to know where to look.

Waitaminit!!! We have a day to celebrate the one we love and you hate it!! Sour mushy old farts! ;-)

Now Honey and I love every day and we show it to each other all the time, (It makes our friends sick) but here's an opportunity to make a point of it.

Like Christmas, commercialized, yes, but still wonderful. I love going and looking for just the right card and thinking hard what I could give to him to thank him for being him. I love the smile I get back and the warm hug and kisses.

Created by Hallmark, or not, it's a wonderful idea! Now, what can I get for him?? besides the card I mean.

Love, annamill

I sent a few cards to some family members and friends. Mister's card is handmade - only really special people get those! I tried buying him a nice meerschaum pipe but my order got lost. He is going to have to settle for the special garment...

Talk about spelling problems on celebrate like we had above, I told this true one awhile back...........

Reminds me of a Roadhouse just outside of Soddy-Daisy, Tennessee, just north of Chattanooga on 27. Someone new came along in the early eighties and reopened this dive with a fresh coat of paint and a huge new professional looking sign out front. They called the place "Celebrate".......Sadly, the sign painter must have been paid ahead in trade, because one side was missing the "R".......still spelled wrong (Celebate)....... but somehow you just KNEW you weren't going to get any action in that dive!

I have always made a point of ignoring Valentine's Day, except once when I had a very traditional girlfriend, and then there was no way I could ignore it...without repercussions more hideous than anything Dante ever dreamed of. 5 years of sheer blithering hell.

Well, it had some good moments too...but they got to be fewer as time went by. Sigh.

I'd rather not label the one day in that fashion, but just show some love every day if at all possible.

I've already celebrated! Rog totally knocked my socks off tonight when he came home. He'd stopped at the grocery store and while there decided he should bring me something special. Instead of flowers which would "just dry up and be dead", as he put it, he found a bouquet of Hypericum (St. John's Wort) berries, extra large size from Ecuador! They are just beautiful and will dry nicely. Hasn't done anything like that in years, so something must be gettin' better!

Romantic swans perform Valentine displays

Romance is in the air for more than 200 swans who are enchanting visitors with their heart-shaped courtship displays at a UK wildlife centre.

And thanks to the sweetheart swans, the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust reserve at Slimbridge, Gloucestershire is now claiming to be one of the most romantic places to be on Valentine's Day.

The mute swan, one of the few animals which finds a mate for life, is known for its impressive courting ritual which involves curling its long neck against its mate to form a heart shape.

Among the winter visitors spending Valentine's Day on the River Severn are Limonia and Laburnum, who have been together for 14 years.

To Roger the skiffler: That sounds like my house !! We only had 26 swans this week to enjoy. I hope they stay around for the gathering. Plus all the beautiful ducks, and cormorants. It's just like living on a bird sanctuary.

Valentine Day started out this morning, before I got out of bed, with roses and a card. I gave him a card and a promise.

I'm a very lucky woman.

Love, annamill

I was going to post a story from the London Evening Standard about a certain Matt R (OK it was Roberts but let's not spoil a good story with accuracy!) who is the personal trainer to a host of female stars (Kim Baisnger, Madonna etc.) but they've dropped it from the later editions!
However, they DO have a story about today's largest nude wedding in Jamaica...(http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/ if you feel the need to read it -for purely scientifc reasons....)

Found it, they'd hidden it in the FASHION section:
I think our Matt has been hiding his light under a bushel:
Getting personal with Matt The names Madonna, Sting and Trudie Styler, Caprice, Sandra Bullock, Mel C and Faye Dunaway cling to Matt Roberts in the Press. But Britain's best-known personal trainer is far too intelligent to let anyone know the truth...

Try Matt R's work outs

I am of two minds about this. I think occasions like Valentine's Day are fine, but like other holidays, they have become intensified to the manic point by commercial interests, desperately trying to differentiate days to make money. So Valentine's Day is hyped and saturates the papers, media, etc.
The problem is that what was once a graceful event between people, light hearted and amusing for the most part, has become relentless. And, like so many holidays, it now highlights the loneliness of those who are outside the magic circle. I think that this manic machinery creates some of that loneliness. When I think of all the people who are suffering from lack of love, or being able to give love in romance, and who will be hurt by today, I wonder about it all. I wish the happy ones well. But --

yours, Peter T.

I found the laundromat on my lunch hour! I drove up behind it and checked one homeless camp, after I honked my horn. It looked as though its' residents were out.

As I was driving out of the back lot, the gentleman from last night came out of the woods. He was clean and neatly dressed. I put some valentine's chocolate in the bag for good measure. As he thanked me we exchanged smiles and I wished him good luck! This is a good VD for me. (BTW from way out west)

MICCA! Stunningly beautiful!

Annamill, don't feel guilty because you are happy and have a loving SO, it is your right and blessing and you can be joyful about it if you choose

Some Mudcatters just made my day with serendipitous timing. I haven't gone to the POB for several days, so went today. Had two tapes with chocolate hearts from one and a CD from another, plus a silly stuffed animal, from my sisters, which plays Aura Lee, and a Valentine from my cousin I haven't heard from in ages.

Sure, we should show our love everyday and we don't have to buy into the commercialism, but making a day extra special is not a crime and it doesn't have to be for an SO, could just as well be a friend, fmaily member, yourself, or a complete stranger whom you smile at or help out as Big Time Woman did.

Singing is the best way to celebrate every day.

I'll be leaving in half an hour to pick up the other two for the gig we do tonight at a retirement home after supper. (we are invited for supper too, yum!)

This is part of the bluegrass band I am in.There are 5 members in the full band, but supper gigs are often only the 3 of us who have variable work hours
(translation: 2 of us are retired, the other works part time)

Several weeks ago, I agreed to do this gig, not thinking that the 14th was anything special.
My wife reminded me that it IS: we go out to supper, just the two of us, every valentine's evening.

She's forgiven me, but I suspect she won't forget my transgression.
In any case we are booked for dinner at the usual romantic restaurant this friday.

...Though it did embarrass me when Sue phoned for reservations and asked if they would still be decorated in valentine mode!

Happy ValDay to you and your loved ones

Rich

Going down to the Mad Hatter Lounge to see the Kung Pao Chickens just like every Wednesday, I guess. Since my *sniffle* Willamette Week date from last week never called me back *sniffle*...

actually, I can see how it would be a little awkward to go out on a second date with someone and have it just happen to be on Valentine's Day. So I'm not taking it personally. Really. Er. (Are you buying it? ;))

Amergin--good luck with your car. You should mosey on down to the Mad Hatter and roister with the redheads! :)

If you should happen to make it down, you'll know me because I'm the one everyone is trying to card (I'm 4'8"). My best friend and I both have red hair--hers is long and curly, mine is shoulder-length. I know you probably won't make it down tonight, but we're usually there on Weds. you oughter come out sometime. :)

P.S. I do have one pretty funny story that relates to Valentine's day, peripherally. Bonnie Gray, the wife of John Gray (of Mars/Venus fame)stayed at my parents' B&B a few years ago, and she and I got to chatting quite a bit. She told me a story that totally cracked me up--it must be really odd, sometimes, to be married to a relationship guru.

Apparently, John tells a story in his seminars about how he came home once and found a sizable collection of empty flower vases sitting in the front hallway. He realized immediately that this was Bonnie's way of telling him she felt neglected, and he immediately rushed out and bought enough flowers to fill all the vases, as a grand gesture to show her that he really did appreciate her. At this point in her story Bonnie rolls her eyes and says exasperatedly, "I had put the damn vases out to be recycled!"

According to John, apparently, you should never give plants to your wife--that sends her the message that "yes, here is another creature for you to nurture and be responsible for." Cut flowers, on the other hand, are a carefree gesture of love. (hmmm...flowers that live and convert CO2 to oxygen, vs. flowers that dry up and die after a few days? I think John takes himself a little too seriously. ;))

Well after afull days teaching I was then treated to a 2 hour twilight training session on performance management. Geoff hsd promised a candlelit dinner for two but the kids were messing about and he didn't get it prepared so we had bangers and mash with them instead. Little Duckling then announced she needed party invitations for the next day so I set to with those on the computer. Geoff told me he had tried to buy me my favourite flowers (freesias) but as there were none he bought me a packet of bulbs instead and called them a sort of IOU! We then went to the pub for our regular Wednesday night session and were treated to Eric the Vikings renditions of Eskimo Nell and The Chastity Belt! Pretty knackered by the time we got home so straight to sleep.
We are now having Valentines Day 2. Stuffed peppers pork steaks in porcini sauce with pasta, bubbly and who knows what for desert!!!!!!!!! I've even put my red velvet frock on! Oh and I did get a card with little ducks on and a box of maltesers (they should be fun!!)Not sure if we'll make paltalk tonight..........

I got to sleep on the couch all day, and then our (young) friend Danny, who is actually my son's friend, brought me a lavender sweetheart rose, for all the times I have fed him when he had no food and no money. (I have lots of these "kids", but damn few of them appreciate it. Danny does!) And he says "Thank you, mom," every time!!

Mr. even brought me a bag of chocolates.......and I went back to bed at 9:30PM.......and I got a phone call from a special Cat friend!! That really made my day!!
