Owner of a Lonely Heart

[This will be my only post about V-day. I promise.]

This is the first Valentine's Day I will be without a boyfriend since I was 17. I'm pretty much ok with this. If you know me, you know my motto is "everything in moderation" except liquor. And shoes. And cheese fries. And reruns of Saved By The Bell. Anyway, at 25, I'm fairly certain I have a few more Valentine's Days up my sleeve before I kick it (I say a few due to the massive consumption of the aforementioned liquor and cheese fries), so I'm trying not to sweat it. I had a good (if by good it's ok to receive two shares of GE for a gift on year, or was that for my birthday?) run, now it's time to experience the other side.

The thing is, I don't need a boyfriend, fancy flowers, super expensive dinner, a nice little piece from Kay Jewelers (actually, if I do ever manage to pay convince someone to be my boyfriend and he ever buys me anything from Kay or Zales, it's off), chocolates, etc. What would be nice, though, would be to, you know, just watch a movie curled up with someone (i.e. not my dog), on a soft couch, just for a couple of hours. Is that so much to ask? Apparently so.

Treatment for my rapidly mending, but decidedly broken heart includes listening to the following on repeat until the depth of my despair becomes comical and my tear jar is full:

all of your friends knit and blog about knitting. i just don't know what that world is like. my friends go to abs classes and the beach. and they sure as hell can't write. oooh, someone at Cahill Gordon & Reindel in NY is reading me.

everything in moderation, including moderation. I find that nothing cures a lonely v-day like irresponsible bitter boozing with fellow single friends. And cheese fries certainly don't hurt.

i have a hard time imagining you turning down diamonds, no matter what their origin ;) Lose the tear jar sweetie. They aren't worth keeping around!

i agree with siobhlogger - for someone who shops at forever 21, you shouldn't be knocking zales or kay. and 2 shares of ge? do you know how many weapons they manufacture for the current war? oh my, that makes you a corporate shareholder in the bush administration!

Hi, Added a new value add to my blog this weekend - a news widget from www.widgetmate.com. I always wanted to show latest news for my keywords in my sidebar. It was very easy with this widget. Just a small copy paste and it was done. Great indeed.

Hi Nice Blog .I am not much for jewelry. I told my husband after he put my wedding ring on my finger that no further Jewelers Point purchases were necessary and that I didn't see the point in spending hundreds of dollars on rocks and metal.
