What?!?!

As much as I love to celebrate holidays, this is the one I avoid.
I always call in sick for Valentine's and pretend to have the flu or something to get out of celebrating this lame hallmark holiday.

My Valentine card to Concorde

What a thrill it is
To send you this
It comes from the heart
And we should not part

Be mine

Just another pointless hallmark holiday.

Yes I may be single at the moment, but when I was with the mother of my children we never celebrated it. Why must there be a day to tell someone you love them? Aren't you supposed to be like that all year round?

I have renamed it "Single Awareness Day."

There is no other day in the year that a single person is more "aware" of her/his single status than on that day.

Think of it this way.

Whilst all those guys out there desperate to impress their girlfriends are spending huge sums of money, you're not spending anything on anyone. Who's the sucker really?

It's a wonderful day to be single.
Restaurants use the day as an excuse to raise their prices.
So I'd say it's a great day to stay home and be single.

Well, for us in Arizona the big celebration on February 14 is Statehood Day. This year is our Centennial-February 14, 1912 to February 14, 2012. I'll be at work as the state elected not to make it a bank holiday.

There's no need for "Singles Awareness Day." If you're single, you're aware.


I'll be posting sexist statuses on Facebook, and cursing all my friends that are in any kind of relationship.

Cadet my friend, this is the one day a year that all people in a relationship try to remind those of us that aren't of this little fact. Thus the more aware concept.

Well, there's time zone UTC+14 (LINT - Line Islands Time) where they'll have Valentine's Day in 17 minutes. That said, it's a holiday I definitely don't like.

LOL, the most weirdly hilarious comment here in non-av. I don't know why I find it so funny, but I do.


Anyway, Valentine's? Come on, treat your girl right and you don't need such a holiday. I say girl because I don't think guys fall for this whole Valentine's thing!


Happy Singles Awareness Day everyone!

My full-time girlfriend at the moment was one of my ladies on the side last year. I promoted her to full-time status last summer. I used the flu excuse on her last year so I had to come up with a new excuse this year.

I treat all of my women right, that is why they keep coming back for more. When you're well endowed and have an oral appendage that has a spin-and-dry cycle, and has the ability to whip up a good froth, Valentine's Day just seems pointless.

Right on!!! I'm on the road in that butt-plug state of California, but have put together a little celebration of my home's statehood anniversary with some colleagues for tomorrow night. Have you noticed the signs on the freeways around Phoenix that have gone up in the past couple of weeks in celebration of the Centennial? I'm pissed they didn't go up sooner; they should have gone up some time last year.

My friend told me he got 3.5 dozen roses for a girl... Then he says, "I really don't wanna get laid tonight". WTF?

BTW... yeah, the second part of my quote wasn't directed at you, but in general.

He's probably board of her already and just bought the roses to keep her happy.

Yep.
It can do everything from delicates to heavy loads.

Hey Okie, that reply cracked me right up! That was a good one.

"My excuse for getting out of celebrating Valentine's today is diarrhea."

Hey Superfly, with an excuse like that you sure won't be getting your "salad tossed" tonight! Even if you use syrup. HaHaHa

Damn ! You young guys just don't have any "romance" in your hearts ! I used to think I didn't like valentine's day either; but any more, the older I get, the more romantic I get ! I got do damned romantic this year, that I went out and bought Miss Arlie a new Cube ! I had designed some catchy magnet signs for the front doors, and Miss Arlie was gonna put a photo of it (with the door signs) on her Face Book page, but my friend Rob (who owns a sign shop) thought he had some magnet material on hand, then finds out he didn't, and had to order it from the supply house, and It will "be here" Monday, so we should have Miss Arlie's Cube (with valentine door signs) on Face Book about next Tues or Weds.

Anyway, seeing as how her Ford F-150's gas line sprung a leak back in October, and I dilly-dallied around and never got around to fixing the thing, she is just OVER JOYED with her Cube !

Here's the really "weird" part.................when I crawled under the F-150 to check the gas line in Oct., I also noticed that one of the metal straps holding the gas tank up, was rusted in two, and the other one was in bad shape also; so I told her, when it warms up, I'll put new gas tank straps on, and I decided I would stick it on my tilt deck and haul it up to Rockville and let Bill Brown replace the damned gas line; ( remember....this was all back in October; ) Yesterday, we were getting in the Cube, going to Terre Haute to buy 50 lbs of sunflower seeds for the red birds, and "pig out" at Ryans, and I checked the mail box as I started to pull out; (you won't believe what was in the mail box....) A letter from Ford Motor Co, saying........"we are informing you that we are recalling ALL 2000 Ford F-150's, because they have deteriorating gas tank straps! Bring your Ford F-150 to the nearest Ford dealer, and we will replace the gas tank straps at NO Cost !"

Now, I ask you.......is THAT "timing" or what ?

Charley

P.S. Hey Superfly..............I should tell you........back "in the day" when I was running around over all the Interstates of the Lower 48, my "handle" on the CB at the time was the "Nookie-Nibblin-Nipple-Nipper"........and for good reason!
