I finally understand hating valentines day! it's almost bigger than christmas to my mum so we celebrate it as such... but now i'm totally dreading it! Just recently went through my 1st 'break-up' with the guy i've been with for almost 2 years and it sucked! even though it was a much needed break up (i'm pretty sure he doesnt even know who U2 is:p) and time to let go it still hurt... and i just walked into the store the other day and it's already filled with valentines stuff?? the commercialism nowadays is so annoying!

 

I dont understand guys who not only cheat but also diss the best band ever! hope i never run across one (although i'm probably sure to someday:-/)

I understand hating V-Day, too! If I'm not with someone (like now) it's seriously annoying. Only good thing about it is that you can get yummy candy for cheaper than the rest of the year. Yes, I'm an incurable chocoholic. :) It's only the second most annoyingly commercial holiday after Christmas in the U.S. FACTOID: Valentine's Day (the modern version, not the original saint's day) was CREATED by the greeting card industry! If that's not enough to make you gag, I don't know what is...

you dated a martian then, vertigoed??? if not it must have been a Bushman, since he didnt know the greatest band on earth....tongue.gif

but seriously; i can imagine all the fuss round this day can be very annoying, and after all its like some already said; just a merchandising trick to make people buy presents, as if you cant show love without the cards, flowers, juwelery....

I give everyday...something at least..even if it's bullshit...hey...that counts for something!

roll.gif I think he might've actually been from pluto (edit: cause even martian's know who U2 is tongue.gif) Oops! Pluto's no longer a planet is it? lol!

so if pluto no longer is a plaet, what is it then?? besides the really sweet, friendly pet of Mickey...

Apparently it got deplanetised a bit ago (not sure if that is a word - but I'm an English teacher and can therefore invent new words!!!) as it's not big enough and doesn't tick all the planet criteria boxes. And is now just Mickey Mouse's very cute pet!
