just so you know....

Today is January 14th, which means that we are exactly one month from "Single Awareness Day". I am a person who has never enjoyed this day and is usually inclined to wear all black on this supposed day of love. So when I walk through every retail store and there is already an entire isle devoted to pink and red CRAP that nobody really wants, I wonder, does anybody else despise this ritualistic fodder as much as me? I would like to make the day into something positive and meaningful.... but its hard when all my memories associated with Valentine's Day are tied to resentment, disappointment and even disdain.

Nevertheless, this year I am determined to make it a good day, or at least not a bitter one. So leave me a comment and let me know what you do to make it less of a commercialize crock of s%&$ and more a sentimental happy occasion.
