I'm very tired of people complaining and moaning about the commercialism or general fakeness of the holiday the is Valentine's Day. It's a harsh proclamation, but I've always thought that if you are bemoaning the existence of Valentine's Day, it's because you have nothing to do on Valentine's Day. I was single on many a Valentine's Day, so I can identify with and feel that pain...but I feel like ranting about it or begrudging people who do stuff on the day is a colossal waste of one's time.
If you don't have a date tonight, I'm sure there is something else productive you can do with your time of the Valentine's theme. Eat some cupcakes, watch the Charlie Brown Valentine cartoon, get together with other single friends...or if in a more horror themed mood, watch a movie like My Bloody Valentine. If you want to avoid love themed festivities, that's totally fine too, just don't be one of those negative souls crying about the evils of a Hallmark holiday. Hallmark has never made up a holiday! They just profit from them. No one has a gun to your head to make you go buy cards.
Today my girlfriend and I will ate cupcakes for breakfast, today we will get dressed up and go for a fancy dinner, and then we will go to the Mayfair for a sexy short film festival. My girlfriend also got me a card with Crow from MST3K on it, and a Robot vs T-Rex shirt. Nothing to complain about there.
