There is no way I'll be in a restaurant this weekend with too many people who only go out to nice restaurants this 1 day a year. I'll fix a nice candlelit dinner at home.

Valentine's Day is for jokers and for spouses who can't handle their other half.

Aw, looks like a real lack of romantics here. I know it's a Hallmark holiday, but that's no reason you can't at least stop and spend some time with that special someone, even without buying gifts or going out to dinner.

Hop-Sing, why don't you buy your favorite set of barbells a box of candy?

Surprised at the # of people not even observing. No matter how cynical you are about love (romantic or otherwise) who wouldn't want to celebrate a holiday, one component of which is eating lots of chocolate?
