Obligitory "Singles Awareness Day" Entry

So, today I find out that Gary (aka darma professor) had a building party (aka we help him build) for the set. He had sent out an e-mail, but I never got it. The only way I knew that I probably should've been there is because I saw his truck sitting outside the theatre. So, I went down and helped him with various things for two and half hours.

Later tonight, I'm going to go with a group of friends to some coffee shop with free food and what not. I didn't have any plans prior to talking with them today, so it's kind of a "Hmm... I'm going to be bored and depressed tonight otherwise, so I might as well go." I'll be leaving for that around eight o'clock.

Anyway, if I really have to explain how I feel about this particular day, then I would suggest doing a little back-issue reading on my journal. I don't have the energy to get into a huge rant about why this day depresses me. At least it's raining and that'll help. Not because I feel vindictive, but because I like the rain and it helps soothe my mind.

You're not alone. The day depresses me, too, and I'm a happily-married chicky! We don't even really celebrate V-day. I guess I find myself uncomfortable with the origins, and now it's gotten ridiculous.

People that treat each other terribly the entire rest of the year make up for it by blowing all kinds of cash on one day. It's all about the conspicuous consumption, and that isn't what love is about. True love is about the inconspicuous, not the bling-bling that you can show everyone else.

Not so much a tirade against V-day, I guess, but a tirade against attitudes in general. *sigh* Just like in high school, when on V-day the cheerleaders passed out the carnations that everyone had bought each other. It was only a popularity contest, a chance to rub it in that someone had a bouquet while someone else had zip. We are soooo kind to each other, aren't we?
