Yes folks, the god of love is in da house!

I'll be the DJ, R9'll be paying and working (for once) as the bartender.

Hope you brought dates, and as always remember: the Trickster's Justice is crewed by amazons, so beware of dathomirians carrying ropes. --No, I won't rescue you this time! http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif

My comp's crashin' left and right today, and I have classes this afternoon, so please forgive me if I vanish for a while.

And now, on with the party!

Aw, buck up guys!

<small>Did I just say "buck up?"</small>

Cupid's day doesn't have to be about feeling like the <strike>lonely, pathetic losers</strike> single guys that we are, it can be about seeking and finding that one person who is absolutely right for you.

This is the one day of the year when love really does solve all the world's problems.

So c'mon, post yer dream-date specs, then go out there and find a match! Girls can play too, describe your dream-guy and set the bar.

For me?

Well, she'd have to be smart, but also wise enough to know how to have a good time. Maybe bookish, or maybe loud and a little b*tchy (what can I say, I like tough grrrls). She'd have to have a sense of humour, preferably a really biting, sarcastic one. Hopefully she'd be a little into magic, maybe neo-paganism or witchcraft so we could do spells together, definitely a philosopher. Maybe some computer skills to round out the deal, and a little bit of artistry to make her creative.

Physically, I go for short hair (I'm a nape-of-the-neck guy), sorta average build (tall thin supermodel-wannabes need not apply). Into functional, practical clothes, definitely light (to none) on the makeup. I prefer dark eyes. The darker the better, like twin pools or black holes that just pull you in. . .

Well, there's mine, now it's your turn. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/cool.gif

I already know a real life 'dream date' from one of my classes. Unfortunately, I'm at the absolute ROCK BOTTOM of the social scale, and so haven't got a chance.

Also, I have to agree with rosie here. I happen to be a <s>lonely, pathetic loser</s> single guy, and V's. Day doesn't depress me at all.

The weird thing is how I just can't sleep since it happened. I was up from Sunday morning to Tuesday night without sleeping. Then on Tuesday night I settled down for a nice long sleep, but I just tossed and turned for about 5 hours. When I finally got to sleep, I had to wake up 3 hours later. The weird thing is, I was wide awake and not sleepy at all after that. People need more sleep than 3 hours once every 4 days. I would think that I'd just pass out eventually, but I don't!

Valentines Day is all that's evil in marketing and humans. why have we devoted one day for a "feeling"?

Nute Gunray
02-14-2001, 06:34 PM
I'm all into commercialization and the general economic rape of the ignorant American consumer, but I don't like Valentine's Day one bit (unless I own a controlling interest in Hallmark.)

Admiral
02-14-2001, 06:42 PM
I also despise this day.

It is not that I am lonely or even want a girlfriend. I hate it because in my school carnations are given out and it is painfully obvious who is popular and not. I also feel that it is just a scam to make the the stores git richer.

Dang it now I'm derpressed http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/frown.gif

I agree with the last four posts before Thrawn's. This is one of those marketing days when all the stores triple the price of anything that someone would get for a "Valentine." I'm also one of those people who feel left out. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/frown.gif But I just know that I don't need anybody (yet) except my family!

You must love yourself before you can love another.

Like every other day, Valentine's Day sucks.

You go around saying how much you love everybody just upsets others. There are homeless and others not in the popular scale who are not loved and Valentine's day just makes it worse. They dont want the small elementry students feel bad so everybody has to give everbody Valentines cards.And I didnt even want to mention the sick idea of 'boys giving other boys cards' idea.

But in the bright side for me, I got $10, Deathsythe Hell EW action figure and cupcakes. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/smile.gif

Bastard! I've been hunting one of those!

But since you got it on Cupid's Day (I refuse to invoke the name of that-Saint-who-has-no-real-connection-to-the-day-anyway) you're now obligated to paint it pink and put a big heart on the ablation shield. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif

Hee. There's an image. . . Y'know, I can actually imagine Duo doing that.

Hey Beastie, Valentine is connected to Feb. 14 because he was executed on that day for marrying young lovers. Cupid himself has less to do with today than St. Valentine.

Today young people are generally discouraged from getting married. I think that's really too bad.

Actually Beastie, at that time marriage was outlawed, young or old. Claudius (the ruler of Rome) thought that if poeple wern't married the men would leave their loves and join his army.
