It's never been a hellacious holiday for me, whether I was single or in a relationship.  The second Valentine's Day I celebrated with my wife, we both ended up having to work later than we'd planned, and then she left her car's headlights on and had to wait for someone to jumpstart it, so we ended up having dinner at the IHOP across the street from our apartment at 9 pm.  That took the pressure off future Valentine's Days.

Tonight we'll go to a screening of The Princess Bride at the Music Box while my parents babysit.  I'm hoping there's a concert by the organist before the show.  I bought her flowers and they were delivered to her office yesterday.  Really not a big deal at all.

St. Valentine is also the patron saint of epilepsy. So I have to confess I'm in love with a purple T-shirt I have :sombrero:.

AKA the holiday when we remember a beheading at the hands of the Romans by buying pretty decorations and eating fancy food.

Aka "Depression Day

I've been single for almost 10 years now and I am far from depressed (at least about being single).  I love being single (with the exception of an occasional fling here and there) and don't plan on changing it soon.

Plus Valentines Day candy goes on sale tomorrow.

You can be both 15 and depressed. It’s a semi-free country.

I could see it, with all the depression memes about these days. Even when I was in high school I remember some anti-Valentines sentiment from other students.

I don't love it or hate it.  I think it's kind of a sanitized Bloom County.

I also have an irrational hatred of the Post's comic section for reasons I don't feel like getting into because they're, well, irrational.
