    Roses are red, soylent is green, if I can't have your heart, how about your spleen?

    The fella and I went out for lunch, as kind of a Valentine's thing- Uncle Bud's Catfish Shack! Humongous hushpuppies! Country music and kitschy decor! It was between him going to school and him going to work, so that's about as much time-w/-significant-other as I'll get today. Otherwise, it's a normal day off of work (I was the only person to get a day off in my bakery on one of our busiest days, fuck yeah) .Then, going to see these guys live tonight, w/ or w/out the fella:

    (I figured a song w/ the chorus "I CAME BLOOD" would be appropriate, as well.)

    Good luck, mate!

    Sent a silly e-mail to my much cried over ex just now (goofy silly, not 'god I'm fucking retarded' silly). Not expecting any sort of response, but I'm still stupidly in love with her, so fuck it.

    For this evening I'm torn between going to the bar a couple of blocks from my apartment and drinking a lot of beer and staring creepily at the first on the list of about three ladies that I've found extremely appealing since moving out to Phoenix (I'm too shy to try to talk to her, but she's far too attractive for me not to look at), before going back to my apartment and going to sleep; or just staying in and watching Justified and White Collar, doing my 'I am going to get fit this year, dammit' workout and then going to bed.

    Love is a wonderful and splendiferous thing that makes the world an amazing and beautiful place when you have it. When you don't, love is a dagger in your chest that pushes deeper every day until, if your lucky, it goes all the way through and falls out and you can pick the dagger up and go find someone to give it to. Otherwise it just makes you feel like you're dying every day until you actually do.

    I'm watching episodes of Community and munching tortillas. Being single ain't so bad!

    Hey, there we go.

    Before I start, @Celan HUZZAH! @GovSpy HUZZAH!

    My wife won't be home until about 9:30pm from her second job, dead tired and will, probably, want to watch the basketball game. I will be doing several hours of homework while continuing my Indiana Jones-a-thon. All the time waiting for a phone call. Yesterday, wait, my grandmother has been in hospice for 2 years now, okay, yesterday I get a call from my mother saying that the home called and to inform us that she will likely being dying within the next 48 hours. It's been a long two years for everyone as she has been enduring dementia so, in a sense, we have all been waiting for this call, that doesn't change the loss we are about to endure. So, long story short, this valentines day won't go in the books as a good one. Sorry to be a downer folks.

    @celan & @GovSpy. (insert celebratory cheer).

    Been trying not to reconnect with my ex, tonight will be a intense version of it. So far, so good...

    On another front, got all the ladies who work with me candy in honor of horny werewolf day, who now makes me LORD NATHAN OF THE BOOKSTORE until tomorrow.

    There's something going on today? Hmm.

    Went to the pub with some ex-work colleagues I haven't hung out with for a while and chewed the fat.

    Pub did seem a bit more empty than normal come to think of it...

    Just another day at the office for me, although the day was made slightly more entertaining by the aggressive anti-valentines ranting by the guy who works the desk next to mine.

    I'm the only single person in the company and yet the one least agitated about the dreaded v-day.

    My girlfriend's coming over - we're going to exchange modest gifts, order Thai food in, hook up her flatscreen monitor (larger than the set that came with my room) and watch the final night of the Westminster Dogthing.

    I spent it with my annoying business partner friend and my husband, at least the few hours we've been awake so far. I was supposed to hang out with a cute artsy chick as well but she had to work. What are we doing? well, we have kids, so my business partner left to run some errands and I'm hiding in the bedroom. I just finished making a big order on amazon for a bunch of fun and needed things for me and the family, thanks to a valentine's day gift card from Dextra (thanks dex!) and now I'm going to go clean house. we'll get to our official celebrating this weekend while the kids are away. we have also been pigging out on super rich truffles too that my husband picked up for us. I think I'm going to fill the day with cleaning the house and feeding my lil ball python. She'd due a big stinky thawed rat. :)

    Who do I want to be spending it with? Well, my hubs, and that cool art chick i mentioned. Since we're all artists, i wanted to spend the day smoking weed and doing artsy stuff...and whatever else she had in mind, but as she had to work that plan is off.

    @ celan - congrats

    Appear to have eaten way too much curry.

    @Government Spy -- Excellent work. Let me know when the wedding occurs, so I can buy a new hat.

    Today I will put on my wetsuit, gas mask, and miner's helmet and slaughter hapless teens with a pickaxe. As one does.

    I spent my Valentine's night consoling a dramatic Cuban chick about her destructive relationship with a married man. I DESERVE CHOCOLATE.

    Valentines Day can go fuck itself. Not only is there the glaring reminder of my own loneliness, it's also my dad's birthday (who's death 6 and half years ago is the source of many a mental issue for me).

    I'd say "Bah, Humbug", but that seems a bit inappropriate. Is there any Scrooge equivalent for Valentines? If not, there should be.

    Having once had one of the most awkward dinners ever when a couple I was friends with invited themselves on a date with me and my then girlfriend, only to bring up their relationship issues at the dinner table and proceed to break-up a few minutes later, you deserve more than chocolate.

    My Valentine's dinner was supposed to be pad thai, but I got lazy so instead I'm eating a block of cheddar cheese and drinking this bottle of wine. I hope to be passed out by 10pm. 9pm if I'm feeling ambitious...


    Happy Valentine's Day?

    I'm in LA. The family is in Dallas. Not much of a Horny Werewolf day for me. And the next several months are only going to get weirder. Sometime in the next few days I'm heading to Mumbai for a 10 month gig at an animation studio. It's going to be amazing, but I know I'm going to miss the fam.
