So I realize that a lot of my posts lately have been about Doctor Who, and I'm sorry for those that don't know or like the show, but it's going to happen from time to time. But this time I thought I'd change the subject and talk about that dreaded so-called holiday Valentine's Day coming up.
I hate this "holiday". I think it's just another one of those over-commercialized holiday's that is hell bent on getting a lot of people in trouble, and forcing more to show their love. I don't think there should be a holiday where you have to prove your love by buying expensive gifts, going on expensive dates, and doing outlandish proposals. If you feel you need to prove your love, then you're doing it wrong. This should be a daily exercise that comes as easy as walking. Why do you need a holiday for it?
It just goes to show how screwed up our society can be. I know people are going to say that I'm just a bitter single girl, but that is so not the case. I have never liked this holiday, because it's pointless. So in saying this, if you disagree with me then bring on the crazy large flower arrangements, cheesy valentine cards, and seriously cliche marriage proposals (seriously unoriginal).
But to help those that feel like me about this holiday, I have come up with a few anti-valentine things that you can do on this day. These are what I would consider a lot more fun than going to extremes to show your love to your significant other:
1 - Watch a movie that has nothing to do with romance. These are a few good ones:
a. Saving Private Ryan
b. Stand By Me
c. 12 Angry Men
d. Shawshank Redemption
2 - Eat some Ice Cream and Popcorn
3- Have some Vodka Lemonades
4 - Invite a friend or two to come watch the movies, eat the food and drink the drinks with you.
5 - Hell make it a party!
