Haha, that one was great!

Which reminded me a quote that I know, I'm not sure if I can translate it properly, but it goes like this,

"Love is an infinite pampering state that doesn't last forever."


Ahh.. here's to a lonely V-day lads!.. Who's with me? [Razz]

Santé!

Edit: I will actually meet someone, but nothing romantic - at all: I have an appointment with my Master's project's supervisor in the A.M.

I will be flying solo also. I am bitter this Valentines Day and to celebrate I am wearing all black tomorrow. Probably the only one cause everyone will be in red. At night, I plan on passing the evening with a bottle or Mango Rum.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

I know how you feel, but this is actually going to be my first Valentine's Day in a relationship. I can't take her out 'cause of a geographical hindurance, but she's already gotten the package I sent her, and I'll be happy to know that she's still there for me.

Guess I'll be joining the club - just found out the chick I was seeing is an arab-hating extremist jew and a racist, so I had no choice but to promtply give her das boot (a boot, not a boat) in der arsch.

I may have a pleasant phone call that evening, but otherwise I'll be on the list of those spending it alone too (probably watching a gruesome horror film and cheering when the first couple having sex gets the quisinart treatment).

I think I'm in the beginning stages of a relationship. We haven't seen each other in a loooong time, and only recently got back in touch. He's coming to visit this weekend, and we're going to decide if we want to make a go of it. I deliberately invited him up the weekend after Valentine's, because I wanted to be single on the day... and to sit and drink Single Malt Irish Whisky with my single friends, and toast what we hope will be the end of a miserable year of failed relationships for all of us.

I've done the next best thing - briefly changed my voicemail greeting to "Sieg heil! Das ist <phone number.> Leave a message, ja?> to discourage any unwanted calls after everything was said and done. Worked like a charm [Smile]

Nice one. My voicemail greeting on my Nextel says, "Hi, you've reached The Dragon of ______, please leave a message at the tone. Si tu hablas español, tienes el número incorrecto."

I got sick and tired of the strange calls I was getting after I got my new phone. [Smile]

If I recall my HS German correctly, it translates as "hail victory" ... but for some reason I want to say that it's not a perfect translation. Sieg doesn't mean victory, or there's some added nuances or something.

Another one spending his V-day alone. Well not really alone, there is a whole building full of people. But you get the drift.

I hope I get a call from a good friend. Other than that, a quiet night of work.

I ordered flowers for my mom over a month ago to be delivered to her at work on V-Day. ProFlowers.com (Gannett gets discounts there) sent me an e-mail today confirming shipment with scheduled arrival for tomorrow. However, UPS says they're scheduled to arrive on Wednesday, Mom's day off. As a result, ProFlowers.com refunded my money. I'm kinda bummed 'cause I thought she'd have fun receiving flowers at work (especially bright yellow roses!). [Frown]

UPS has not once delivered a package to me on time.

FedEx, on the other hand, has the problem of delivering shipments one day early.

I'm spending Valentine's Day alone, but I'm not too bitter about it. It's just like any other day to me.

They delivered my shoes on time and my dress one day early. I didn't need them until this weekend. I'm more disappointed about the flowers. [Frown]

I am just glad that the woman in my office who irritates me has the day off. My wife is in Austin babysitting a client, but she should be home in time to make her opera workshop class and then come home exhuasted at 8:00 pm. Needless to say that will be romantic. I have a test that night in my PreCalculus Class, which is the bane of my existence. I have had three semesters of calculus and linear algebra, but I didn't take calculus in high school so according to some stupid rule, I have to take Precalculus. What was the subject - Valentine's Day? I bought my wife Tourmaline earings at the Tuscon gem and mineral show two weeks ago, and I got her card Friday. Of course, I am not sure where they are. And another thing, I procrastinate very well.
