I'm in the market for alternative Valentine's ideas this year. Flowers are so temporary, chocolates are sugary and caloric and most of us are single. How can we celebrate in an inclusive way?

Remembering back to my high school days, it was almost imperative to have a romantic interest, but on the other hand if you tried to start a relationship at that time, the other person would get all freaked out. So what about a frientine celebration? Or a galentine thing for the girls? Guyentine? Need your ideas, friends!!
May 2019 be better for us all.

How about by doing our best to ignore it? I know it's impossible to ignore it completely, because the stores are already full of Valentine's stuff, so it's right under your nose, but if it's possible for me to hate a day worse than New Year's, Valentine's would be it.

Most likely nothing.  :)


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Actually, I probably won't completely ignore it. I take this as one of those occasions to do something nice for myself, something that generally involves food, in this case probably lasagna for supper that evening.  :)

Probably not going to be lasagna after all. The steaks I ordered from Omaha Steaks that I bought with "points" from work arrived yesterday. Looks like it will be a steak instead.

Incidentally, I'm not quite sure what to make of those steaks. I ordered a combination pack of ribeye steaks and hamburgers. They sent me four "fillets of prime rib." Whether what I ordered is no longer available or simply out of stock, so they sent something else, I don't know. The fillets I'm sure would be considered a better cut of beef than the ribeyes, but I specifically ordered the ribeyes and the hamburgers because they are leaner meat. Prime rib is prime because of the fat in it, and these fillets are well marbled with fat. Call me goofy, but I would rather have had the leaner meat.

I occasionally buy from Ohama steaks as well.  Their stuff is pretty good.
