    so its Arizona's statehood day, and covered with some holiday where men are put on the spot to give women free things, and people such as myself are shoved into the spotlight even farther for not having that special someone to shower with lovely parting gifts and prizes. why? because every single woman I;ve met today has asked what I got them. `well, you're single, so you don't have someone attatched to you... aren't I important enough to you to get me something tho? <pouty look>'

    I've recieved this from the 3 administration/accountant chicks, ( 1's marries) one of the customer service chicks ( she's married, and pregnant) one of the girls I talk to online occasionaly, and I bet the lady at the gas station will want something, the 3 girls I occasionaly go out with will all want something, and 2 or 3 random strangers I see in traffic will want something. what the heck is wrong with this? I'm not going to be getting anything in return from said people, except for a smile, or not getting told how crummy a person I am for the next 4 months solid... not a hug, not a box of candy in return, no flowers, no tools, no 1972 caddilac 501, nothin'.

    can someone who is not married, not going out with someone, and can kinda understand where I;m coming from explain this to me? (people who gloat about thier relationship, or how cool thier girlfriend is will be verbaly thrashed down... I don't need to be hearing about how much you love valentines day. ) in other news, Happy 90th Birthday Arizona, and Happy Valentines massacre rememberance day.

    I feel your pain. I have a girlfriend, but still get the comments you're talking about. Put it to them like this: After a years worth of putting out, giving me back rubs, helping me clean my house, and doing my laundry, then I'll get you some damn flowers for Valentines day. I hate it! I hate being told to do something. That goes for Christmas, birthdays, St. Patricks day, anniversaries, groundhog day, and every other stupid holiday. I'd much rather just get her something for no reason at all, not because everyone says you have to. And before the women start in, yes I do buy her stuff for no reason. I bought her a dozen and a half mixed flowers about 3 weeks ago just because I wanted to cheer her up. One more time. I hate holidays!

    Shouldn't it be called uncommon sense?

    To often in this busy life we don't have the time to show the people we love how important they are to us. Add on the fact that it is hard for some people to express their feelings. This holiday gives people an opportunity to express themselves and show appreciation to the ones who stand side by side with them every day of the year, through thick and thin. I don't expect 75.00 bouquet of roses, diamond necklaces or fancy chocolates. Just a day to slow down and show my appreciation to the person I'm with and visa versa. Anyone who is "expecting" big, expensive gifts isn't worth the time.
    Does this help? If not, sorry. It's just my take on things. Peace.

    My girl friend is a bitch. But if I don't get her something, she'll tell my wife. And then I'll have to get something for both of them.

    heheh. Just kidding. But I know what you mean, I hate getting something for some one 'cause some f'ing card company made up a day for it, and then everyone expects something from you...I like Diesel's response though...put out for a year and I'll get something for next Valentine's Day...heheh.

    <font color=blue>I'll bet that, regardless of the reason, the people in the E.R. always giggle when they pull something out of someone's ass.

    well, today took a brief upswing: I got off work, and went home. sat down, saw the TV spewing out nothing but crap about how happy valentines day is, looked over at the shelves, and racks of movies, and popped in Aliens.... great flick, especialy when you feel like hating the human race. after that, I did the only thing I could do... popped in Alien 3, and watched more carnage... great flicks, full of generaly nasty scary crap, with absolutely no hope whatsoever. watching it made me realize one thing: at least I;m not Ripely... she gets screwed hard in the series... lesee... (if you havn't seen these, this is kinda a complete spoiler... if you want to see them then don't read )

    Alien: the only survivor from the original attack, which killed everyone on her crew, and left her with nightmares for the rest of her life.

    Aliens: her daughter grew old, and died while she was in cryogenic sleep, floating through space. some conniving bastard drags her back out to the planet where she met the aliens initialy. everyone she knows and loves gets killed except her, newt, that one solder, and 1/2 of bishop.

    Alien 3: an alien egg was planted on her ship, which hatches, kills all the ocupants, except her, and she gets implanted with alien embryo's. her ship crash lands on a prison colony after some 40 or so years of drifitng, all her friends are dead, she has an alien growing in her, and there's a face hugger running around killing dogs, and cats. the alien gets bigger, starts killing more people, and they eventually manage to kill it, with ripley finaly committing suicide as the alien begins ripping its way out of her chest.

    Alien Ressurection: evil mad scientist doctors use DNA from a blood spatter she left, to reconstruct her, with the alien DNA partialy mutated with hers, to make an alien queen. she's alive, but 1/2 alien, the aliens break out, start killing things, everyone she knows gets killed, except for the android, the wierd mutant alien/human thing almist kills them, and she has to kill it, even tho its basicaly her grandchild.

    if this has showed me one thing, its that I am truly glad I am not in a damn movie. on the positive note, I got a call from a girl, who didn;t demand candy, flowers, roses, or even talk on the phone that long.

    oh well, tomorrows another day, and with that advent, the worst holiday on the face of the planet will be history for another year.

    I agree with you. Anyone expecting huge gifts and things just doesnt understand the point of the holliday in the first place. It is a great time to show how you care. Its something for people to look forward to. You guys must be around some really GREEDY women! :o)

    If you didnt build it, it isnt really yours.........

    I feel your pain. I hate this day. Just don't go over to the General Chit Chat board on POR and read that Valentine thread. I've been crying all day.
