pooh pooh Valentines day  
It's waayyy too commercialized (but that's not really an argument is it, the real question is what isn't these days?!)

I mean if you love someone it should be expressed EVERY DAY. I get mother's day or father's day because sometimes our parents need at least one day to themselves. But Valentines day? like that old guy in the sh*t my dad says twitter account, I don't think St Valentine would want us to screw in his memory (this one t-shirt that said "don't forget to f**k on Valentine's" was hilarious though LOL).

But maybe this is just me being bitter as I've never had a significant other (Drew Barrymore in never been kissed can suck it compared to me) XD However I will say that roses are over rated, well, flowers in general as presents really because what message does it convey?

"Here babe, like this flower our love is in full bloom today but if you don't put it into a vase of water and take care of it it will die in 3 days or so. Maybe before then. Yes, yes you are high maintenance"


EDIT: HAHA I clicked on my tag and I said pretty much the same thing 2 yrs ago but much nicer and there was a pretty picture >_> aahh the days when I had time to photoshop

But speaking of the valentine's love bug, I've always upheld that fictional men do it better and my friend Larissa is having an awesome international giveaway on her fabulous blog:

Welcome to Larissa's Life

She asks the question, what is love for you?

Well having never experienced romantic love I can only guess at it and I think this quote (one of my all time favorites) sums up my 'impression' of how it is;

"Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is [...] it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don't blush, I am telling you some truths. That is just being "in love", which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away."

Thank you for your eloquence Louis de Bernières now go forth and enter!!! I'm so there :)
