Love, Actually

Just browsing my favorite blogs today and found this on Candy Addict.

So much more applicable and realistic than the originals, don't you think?

My favorites are "peaked at 17" and "pillow huggin"! Ha ha! Enjoy...

And thanks to the Candy Addict for this entertaining kick-off to the holiday that is the bane of every single girl's existance! At least I will have a smile on my face this year!

P.S. Why are there no "Congratulations on Being Single and Fabulous!" cards? Or "Singles are Smarter!" parties? What day do we celebrate "Happy Singles Day"? These are all things that should exist. Our society, which has a large percentage of single people in it, should stop giving couples all the attention with engagements, weddings, Valentine's and baby showers. (No offense, couples, but people who stay single longer than you have to go on a LOT more bad dates than those of you who have already cashed in your chips. We deserve a holiday too! And some gifts, dang it! Do you know how expensive your registries are? It's payback time!)

Come to think of it, I'm going to write more on this topic.....stay tuned.

I'm thrilled to be single this Valentine's Day. I've been separated from my ex since May, and I'm loving my new freedom after 20 years. I'm dating two guys right now, but I really don't want anything from them for V day. I always thought of it as a Hallmark day anyway. Then again, I'm not the romantic type - bet you'd never guess.

I wish I had all the money I spent on Valentines Day back. I'd buy a pack of gum.

Hey, that's a great idea! We'd have to make it like August 15, which is as far away as possible from Valentines Day.

Great post. I wrote a post about Valentine's day on BR. It is getting so tedious being regarded as less than fabulous is you aren't a couple going on to the ark.

Actually, I just refer to Valentine's Day as Singles' Awareness Day. I'll guess I'll throw a shirt design together and have some printed.

I was going to let the day slide by unobserved this year, but all these posts have forced me to write my own.
