    Long term relationship, but between two different countries. Chocolate, coffee, tea, and some jasmine tea and a leather wallet. I haven't sent the package yet, but will send it the day of. $20 for shipping, sheesh...

    Just complaining because the USA has better shipping rates. Canada Post is just ridiculous. (I shipped a package of cards out to a friend, and it was $12 for a tiny package...within the country!)

    Dont have anyone to love, but I will certainly try to make the world a better place by cleaning trash out of ditches and lakes around my city. Gotta show some love for the world, ya know

    I forgot
    Bought a fleece sheet set for my fiancee, cuz that's something she's wanted for ages cuz she likes being super warm while in bed.

    And then also one of those "Night Sky" posters that shows how the stars would be generally be positioned on any particular date. I opted for our wedding day next year, and she loved it. Had to give up the frame that held one of my Bloodborne lithographs for it so we could hang it ASAP :(

    And some other stuff as well, she decided back in January she wanted to start a web blog, so me paying for hosting and the domain and running the majority of the admin stuff is another gift as well.

    We already celebrated on Saturday/Sunday, since we were snowed in anyways. She got me a personalized wallet, since my 10+ year old one has basically been barely held together for the past year or so now and then back in January she also bought me the rest of the Witcher series books I needed. All in all a pretty great Valentines this year.

    what's with the candy? I don't think we do candy here. in France it's flowers, jewelry, and maybe chocolate, but not handmade like Japan. I think it's more going to restaurant and spending the evening outside, together.
    Isn't candy day on Mach 14th? (well, Asia has White day, because Valentine is for girls to propose with chocolate and White day is for boys to thanks girls with candy).

    Lot of people say it's not an important day, and it's commercial, but you'd better not forget it nevertheless, or you'll be remembered forever as "you forgot it that year!". If you don't plan to celebrate, be sure it's fine with your other half first.

    Yeah, that's strange. You can "not do" everything, and people will accept it : not smoke, not drug ... but not drinking? what are you? Ill ? you are no fun ! go away, you are not normal if you don't drink....
    people... :unsure:

    At the computer.
    Valentine's day strategy:

    1. Sell chocolates at Feb 14.
    2. Sell condoms later that day, and the day after that.
    3. Sell pregnancy tests a few weeks later.
    4. Sell diapers 9 months later.

    It's perfect!

    Commercialized holiday or not, I love Valentines Day purely because they put out the white chocolate M&Ms for this "holiday" only, and since I can't eat regular chocolate, I'm super excited to buy a truckload of them.

    I suppose my Valentine's present to my boyfriend will be me getting my passport, to visit, lol. (I think he's sick of visiting Texas ;O; ) I haven't thought of an actual gift, yet. The idea behind Valentine's is just pure corporate greed, but excuses to give and get presents is always fun!
