Romantic, Etc.

I hope you all know that a saint was killed today. And you're eating chocolates. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
{rest less}
I don't think I'm really cool enough to enthusiastically love or hate Valentine's Day. It's fun to celebrate, the way anything is fun to celebrate. It was always fun in school to pass out valentines (mostly because of the candy) But honestly? I am pretty mutual. I probably wouldn't even remember what day it was, if there weren't reminders everywhere.
I'll be spending the day babysitting for a funeral, (am I the only one who thinks it's a weird day for a funeral?) writing papers, painting, going to dinner with a friend because we're both heartbroken that we can't afford the Ben Kweller/Pete Yorn show, and a long distance call that will most likely end in accidental sleeping, and the words "I wasn't asleep" being repeated a few times before we eventually face facts, and hang up.
What can I say? I'm really going all out this year.
Happy Valentine's Day. I hope you get a teddy bear as big as your car.

Hahahah. YES. I agree with this entire post. Valentines Day would actually ONLY be worth celebrating if I happened to receive a teddy bear as big as my car. Maybe someday.

Happy Valentines Day, Paige. <3

I'd rather wish you a happy belated v day. Buy yourself some shitty chocolate and relish in the fact you are better than all those other saps.
