Chocolates are excellent Gifts. ;)
That coveted event is just around the corner. You know what I'm talking about. I've had countless people ask me what my plans were. And I know countless others who have this certain allergic reaction whenever anyone mentions the word 'Valentines'.
I've read a couple of blogs and heard a couple of people launch into a tirade on how we shouldn't celebrate it. Some of the reasons include it not being of our religion and it being just a way of milking more money out of consumers. Yes, they are right but they also sound bitter. Noone to 'celebrate' with, perhaps? :B
To be fair, I don't particularly celebrate Vdays either. But that doesn't mean I'd turn down dates or gifts. Just like my stand on Christian celebrations, I don't celebrate Easter or Xmas, but I do stock on those marked down choccies after Easter and I never refuse Xmas Dinner invitations. So in a way, I play a small part in the whole fiasco but I don't really believe in the actual practise.
Oh and just so you'd know, I was walking around OU today when this cameraman and a microphone weilding person jumped out of nowhere and asked me some random Valentines questions. I wasn't ready and I found the whole thing SO absurd that all I did was laugh in between giving some lame answers. Yeah. Pray it doesn't air on tv.
