i have boycotted valentine's day for YEARS for general reasons, first and foremost being: i fucking hate making a big deal of nothing.
and for most of those v-days, i was dating someone - but the only good valentines day i EVER remember having was in middle school, seventh grade - i had literally asked out a guy the night before at a party.
then next day, when i came home from school, he had stuck a heart box of truffles (my favorite, who KNOWS how he even knew) by the door. granted, he lived 2 doors down, so this wasn't *quite* the most difficult thing ever. but still!
and in all the many years after that, i can't remember a single valentines day that was memorable.
and then, i became single... and the boycott began in EARNEST. i started wearing a "Singles Awareness Day" t-shirt. yes, i was probably obnoxious. no, i didn't mind that one bit!
and now, even though i've been in a relationship for a WHILE...
i still hate valentine's day. i hate all the stupid crap that goes along with it. i hate the expectations, the commercials, the stupid movies.... gaaahhhhhhhh.
i don't celebrate it at all.
but this year? BRING IT.
because i pretty much have the BEST valentine ever, in the form of this:
Ms. Snark FOUND ME A SATAN-BEAR.
i'm... officially in love.
and, just in case that wasn't enough?
those would be peanut butter cookies.
heart-shaped peanut butter cookies.
darlin, i will be your valentine ANY day!
