Coz it's Valentine's Day innit...

Every year I shun the commercial concept of Valentine’s Day. I don’t really believe in “love” in the conventional sense because infatuation is most commonly confused for love blah blah blah... I’ve already been around the block with this one and stated all my views here and here.
This year, I’m somewhat less irate about the day mostly because I don't care enough. I still don’t buy into what could very well be the single biggest marketing ploy in the world next to Mother’s Day (seriously, you only show your Mom you love her once a year? Shame on you...) but this year is a little different.

This year I’m all about appreciation and gratitude for all the lovely people I have in my life (and it has absolutely nothing to do with Valentine’s Day but hey, any excuse to party right?). So my friends, here’s wishing you a Happy Valentine’s Day. It’s a good day to be thankful and eat chocolate and just bask in the sunlight, or dance in the rain... whatever floats your boat ;D
PS. Edward Monkton rules!

  1. I prefer to give an actual banana as a token of my esteem, rather than a banana on a card, which is rather less edible. You views on love are very sound.

  3. I am a far bigger fan of Edward Monkton than I am of my mother, but hopefully you can forgive me for it?

    Found you on The Japing Ap and may come back every day or a while.

    Not in a creepy stalker way, just in a mildly disturbing, 'I'm watching you kinda way'.

    Just so you know.

  4. It's very difficult not to acknowledge the day, but yeah, I'm not into the cheese factor either.

    Mr. Bananas - South African bananas are quite delicious. Remind me to give you one!

    MCIS - Thanks for visiting, I know you know I'm a regular stalker and admirer of your work ;)

    Barreness - You're forgiven. Welcome to the circus thats my life. You're welcome here anytime. BTW I like stalkers (coz I am one) :D

    Beebs - I've found that its a great day to be thankful for the people around you. Truth is, love exists everywhere... all the time. I mean... I love Ian Somerhalder all day every day. Now if only he would love me back! lol
