Why I Love Valentines Day
Yes, Valentine's day offers single people an acute awareness of all the happy couples around them, but the day is about love and fun. I love the Valentine's Day cards and wish that people still passed them out like we did as kids.
I love cards in general and flowers. A lot of women say that flowers are useless because they will just die anyway. This is dumb, don't bother arguing with me because I will just agree to disagree with you. Flowers are beautiful and make my house smell fresh. They are also fun to look at and any time I've received them flowers make me smile. Always remember to say thank you, this will let the other person know that you like this sort of thing and may encourage them to do it again. This is probably why my family continues to send them to me. Thanks family, you are G-g-great! Besides if you don't like fresh cut flowers, ask for potted ones.
Is the juice worth the squeeze? Dating can be hard, lonely, happy, sad and fun. Yep dating is bi-polar in itself. Dating makes normal sane people very confused. If you like being single ignore the rest of this paragraph, for the rest of you still reading asking yourself is the juice worth the squeeze? Think of orange juice. Making home made orange juice is a lot of work, I know, I've made home made orange juice. The moments of happiness are worth it. I'm not desperate, I have standards and some day will hopefully find a nice man who likes me back. Until then I'm content and realize that the juice (all the trouble and singledom is DEFINITELY worth it). Besides all the married people will tell you, the grass is always greener. (By the way the juice question comes from the movie "The Girl Next Door")
Being a Pisces has a lot to do with my love for February. Ok, not really the Pisces means nothing to me but I do have a story for you. My name, Desarae, which means desired one or long awaited for in French. I was supposed to be born on Valentine's Day but (like now--I'm super short.. 5' 1" to be exact) I was too small to pop the "bubble" and was born 6 days late on the 20th. Ergo my name.
Amy S. Bryant: I was born the twentieth of FEB. not Jan. (just teasing). Okay one more story. Last month on January 20, 2010 @AmySBryant wished me happy birthday and 7 other people followed suit, including two people who looked it up on Facebook and realized that was wrong. I should have played it out and got two birthdays, but I didn't think of that before thanking her and telling her wrong day. Dumb story, maybe, but you just read it. Amy is great, just saying.
I'm only half sorry for wasting your time with this post, that's 5 minutes you may never get back (and could have been using for those goals I keep talking about). Anyway tell me what YOU think. Tell me if you like Valentines Day, what your favorite holiday is, or why you liked/hated this post.
