    First let me say that I HATE Valentines Day. Valentines Day, Sweetest Day, etc. They are marketers wet dreams forced upon us by the women in our lives, and really have very little to do with us guys...

    Anyway, for Valentines Day I was planning on doing squat. Steak and Blowjob Day has yet to be observed in my home so I literally wasn't even going to buy a card. Well, one of those fucking "He went to Jared!" commercials came on the other night and my wife said she would like a particular necklace. Long story short she meant for V-Day, so I got online and ordered it from another vendor. Jared and their commercials can lick my sack...

    So today the necklace arrived. I had to drive 40 minutes each way in traffic and snow to pick it up from UPS. And when I got it home and opened the box the fucking thing was smaller than the tip of my pinky finger. Below is a picture of it, now imagine how fucking small the pendant really is. $150 for that little piece of shit? Needless to say it's going back. But in addition to the time wasted I'm out return shipping, and now I have to spend probably DOUBLE to get a necklace that isn't an embarrassment. And for what? :mad: /rant

    Yea. V-Day is a little overrated. Sounds like a legitimate bitch to me.

    Yes. Yes it is. My wife bought me a card and an animated toy from Halmark. Anything in there sound like something I would ask for or want? Fuck no. And all the while I'm running around like an idiot trying to buy her jewelry that she'll like. :roll:

    EDIT: So I bought my own V-Day present. Check this motherfucker out:

    MSP, that's a funny looking Macbook Pro. I think you should get an exchange at the Apple store. ;)

    I just couldn't justify it. Twice the money, 1GB less RAM, 1/3rd the warranty, and what I bought will annihilate the MBP in 3D performance. Plus I'm getting some clients with Vista and wanted to get my feet wet.

    Yeah, and thanks bro. But there's no reason an innocent bystander should have to suffer because I went to Jared! :vom:

    Fuck valentines day. We are doing a $10 limit, and I have not even got anything yet....

    I hate jewelry. The diamond market is a scam and has only exploited the people where the little rocks come from. They have done an amazing job of brainwashing women and it sucks.

    I bought Emily a silver necklace for x-mas (no diamonds) and that is my jewelry quota for a wile.

    Vday is fucking retarded, and my gf and I acknowledge that. That said, I still get her a dozen roses or something small every year, just so she doesn't feel left out.

    Jewelry for Vday is fucking outrageous.

    ...I sent Tay a giant box of homemade brownies and cookies, plus a box for his parents and a box for his brother and his brother's gf. His hard drive recently got wiped without him having a back up, so I sent him a bunch of music, pictures, and video from mine (4-5 dvds worth) so he can plug his ipod into his computer again. Plus an NYU shot glass (he collects them). And I'm buying him new earrings (he hasn't worn any in years and has been talking about wanting to wear them again for a while) and new bars for his nipple piercings. And there might be something nice waiting in his inbox tomorrow AM.

    And I just finished making cupcakes for my roommates and the coworkers I'll be seeing tomorrow.

    All I'm saying is not all girls are selfish :)

    My gf and I are doing dinner at some new Cajun place with another couple that we're close friends with. I might buy flowers, but we decided on no gifts since it's so corny.

    almost all the mechanics at my ramp (including myself), are leaving tomorrow morning at 6AM to be bussed to 29 palms to receive vehicles. we'll be there until saturay evening, possibly sunday.

    as bullshit as this holiday is, it really sucks to not be able to spend it with the person you love. I've heard numerous stories from several mechanics about how they spent all this money on ther wives and such, but will not be able to spend the time with them. One, in example, bought a $200 non-refundable dinner cruise. In the last four years, he has not spent a single valentine's day with his wife due to deployments or other circumstances.

    i dunno. it just kinda sucks. i'm sorry to hear that ya'll aren't that into the "holiday." I myself am single, and it's a pretty depressing/lonesome affair. Working through it might make it a bit more bearable...

    by the way, the chain must be as thias a human hair... in the picture, the proportions are way off if that thing is really as small as your pinky.

    and czechrboard: TMI!

    "I used to say 'Don't Go There!' But that was... *pfft, lame."

    For Valentines Day the only thing me and the gf are doing is spend all evening in bed. Her idea, not mine. But who am I to argue? She actually works in a card shop but still believes this is particular day of the year is bollocks.

    I bought her a DVD she's been banging on about for months though, hope it arrives today!

    That really sucks MSP, they should put a little asterisk (photo enlarged, not acutal size) or something right on the picture. But since this thread was highjacked into I hate Vday/What are your plans thread.

    Materialistic Holidaze are great! Gotta keep the economy going! :roll:
    I don't blame everyday people as much anymore because the average citizen doesn't always realize we are in a psychological war and we are losing. Man that's depressing, forget what I just posted and enjoy this day anyway you can.

    Happy V-Day people!!! :D

    I side with Integra. VD should be bi-derectional. If my GF just waits to be covered with gifts, she'll be covered in her self-created void.

    I'm noy buying into the commercial craze that VDay has become. I'm more than sick of the jewelry ads on TV and the chocolate ads and the......ad infinitum.
    Tas has in mind what the holiday is all about, as with scott and emily. sure, my wife would like to recieve lots, but it isn't happening this year and may not happen again. jewelry just ends up laying around and never worn.

    seriously, the jared ads are so annoying. as is the fact that the traffic report on the one radio station i listen to has been sponsored by Sees candy shop all week...it's become so commercialized it's sickening.
