Valentines Musings and Scarcasm

Well another Valentines Day has come and gone and I am left with the fundemental post romantic climax thoughts... Is this a holiday created solely for Hersheys, FTD, and Hallmark? I've never really thougth of it this way but i keep hearing these sentiments from those around me. Especially at work. So this is the way I look at it.

I get it when people say that this is a manufactured holiday. The fact that it wasnt widely celebrated for many many years puts a little doubt into your mind. and that fact that the price of roses, the required holiday flower, skyrockets durring the two days surrounding V-Day. Kinda like the gas companys price gouging durring hurricane season ain't it? V-Day cards have gone from $1-2 to upwards of $6-7. And why can you only get those Sweetheart Candies Two Weeks Out Of The Year?!? I like those... not for reading, for eating. Also the sudden emergance of Sweetest Day... Very curious...

But in my opinion, these holidays are a none too sutble reminder of the lack of attention that we as a society pay to our significant others. The fact that most men stagger into flower shops at 11:45pm on Feb 14 to redeam themselves with as many roses as they can carry to the door of their girlfriends apt to megerly mumble "I didn't forget..." How Pathetic Are We?
Is it really so hard to do something special for the woman or man that you love and spend your life with? And why only on one day of the year, or two if you actually try to do Sweetest Day... They deserve to be made feel special as often as you can. For all the shit they put up with, namely you, they deserve to be showered with flowers, candy, and heartfelt words on a daily basis. Ive had four wonderful Valentines Days with Greta, but they are special not because of the day, but because of the thought we put into it. Our presents are personal. They wouldnt make sence to anyone but us. That is what is best about them. But we do these kinda things on other days too, and that is all the more special.

So my advice to all who read this and are thinking about how they can do better next year. dont wait till next year. your woman or man will be much happier if you forget all that silly planning for next year that youll probably never do and think of something nice to do for them on some random day. that will mean far more that a cheep card and expensive flowers on a set day.

Dont just particapate in the holiday...Practice the meaning of Valentines Day...
Show love to one another... that's the way it should be.

My Kinda Pot....

So after a anoying day at work, as usual, I find myself among my peers... talking... joking...drinking... and calling them bastards over stacks of my poker chips. I got invited to play Texas Hold-Em at a co-wokers house tonight. as i am allready out this round... Three Hands In I Might Add!!!!.... sigh... I decided to post on my blog for the first time in a while.
Things are going much as they have the last age, full of their own coming and goings. I bought some new comics, I have beaten Guitar Hero on its MEDIUM level. (don't let the word medium fool ya. Its F'ing HARD) I picked up an application for a passport, so soon I may join the ranks of the well traveled and wise.
I really miss Greta. I almost freaked out the other day. I was watching FOX news channel and the heading "TERROR IN LONDON" popped up. Well after I forced my heart out of my mouth I realized that the story was about the bombing this past summer. I still worried for the next couple hours, cause something could happen and I wouldnt know. Can you imagine how much it would hurt to find out about that from a TV first... ouchies.
Well on to happy-er thoughts... I had a moment of supreme irony the other day. I took a Food Safety Class for work the other day. It was all about safe cooking procedures and cleaning and stuff like that. Well... it ran from 9am-4pm. We had to have lunch. It was being held at a bar. Funny huh? Half the people there were drinking when i got there... and that was 830am. Anyways, we ordered lunch from the bar. And when mine came... there was a hair in it.
I find that very funny.

Well thats it.
Greta, call me, email me, something... I really miss you. All my love.
Everyone else. Peace out homies
