Happy St. Valentine's Day

Few holidays elicit so much stress as St. Valentine's Day and it's not hard to understand why. Scorned lovers and lonely people often scoff at the pressures of finding a date. Boyfriends who are low on cash scramble to find some way of making the day special for their significant other. Mobsters hide in fear of another massacre. Its chaos all around I tell you.

Surprising to most I kinda like this day. Sure it's cheesy, corporate nonsense designed to get you to consume, but there's something about appreciating a day where you can reflect on the people you care most about, which you should be doing every day.

So whether you're going to trip the light fantastic tonight or if you're going to spend a quiet evening by yourself take this day to think of the people that love you regardless if they want to see you naked. I won't be having sex tonight, well at least not with a partner, but that's okay...I think...oh I hate myself...wahhhhhhhhh...

Happy Valentine's Day from the folks at Erik's Ramblings.

"I got a Valentine's Day card from my girl. It said, 'Take my heart! Take my arms! Take my lips!' Which is just like her. Keeping the best part for herself." - Robert Orben

I asked my brother if he was doing anything special for Valentine's Day. He said "Yeah, I might use both hands."
