Sometime in 2001, I resolved to never again be het up about celebrating Valentines' day, whether I was single or attached. Occasionally I will slip and care a little, even though I know rationally that blah blah it is a made up holiday blah blah. But in general I will not support the Hallmark industrial complex. Since 2001, the day always came and went with little fanfare. And since I keep my girlish figure by eating chocolate every day, it's not all that different from any other day.
Each year I may or may not do stuff especially for the day (with significant others or single female friends or whatever), but it will with any luck be a day that I live and breathe, and so I will do stuff as a matter of course. So far, this year my plans are to go to my "urgent care" appointment, study at the library, go to my quantitative methods lab, have a homemade dinner and bake some cookies while listening to country music. That sounds like a good V-day to me.
But that doesn't mean I won't blog on the day! Here at Law and Letters, let's kick off a few days of V-Day blogging. I invite my co-bloggers to post conventional or antithetical Valentines day posts about love and/or loss. Don't be afraid to get personal. Although I'm not going to. But I am going to try to find the most depressing stuff ever for Thursday. Because I am awesome like that.
To kick things off, a collection of stuff from around the 'nets:
