  1. Of course he’s getting paid for it! He’s on salary! It would cost me more to figure out how to adjust my payroll system to NOT pay him for it, than I’d save by not paying him.

  2. Valentine’s Day is such a non-event for me, usually.

    I think I’m gonna plan a girly drink night that night.

    Good idea, Devon, now go post on your OWN blog about it.

    Yes, I will stop talking to myself eventually.

  3. I vote for Sue as employer of the year. Giving Valentines Day off? Sounds good to me.

    Mmm, extra psuedo-stat holidays…

    Ooh, wait: are they getting paid for it? 🙂

  4. Well, I’ll never discourage anyone from wearing all-black. So slimming and tasteful. Who says it has to be goth? Tell me, is the LBD not one of the happiest of garments?

    Anyways, I think people doth protest too much about Valentine’s Day. The best way to combat the commercialism is to just bloody well ignore it all.

    Me, I’m giving my employee the day off work so he can go be with his wifey in Victoria, and I’m going to spend the day doing whatever my little heart desires… probably sewing, come to think of it.

  5. I’m married now, but I was single for many, many Valentine’s Days until that happened, so I’ve seen both sides. It’s true that Valentine’s Day has become a Hallmark holiday, but what holiday hasn’t? (It’s my theory that eventually celebrations will become so commercial that the seasons will no longer be spring/summer/fall/winter, they’ll be Easter/Mother’s Day/Halloween/Christmas.)

    But I feel like those who resent the holiday itself are misdirecting their resentment. Cringe at the commercialism if you like (as I do), but it shouldn’t affect the meaning of the day. Valentine’s Day has ALWAYS been my favourite holiday, single or not, because it celebrates something that I truly believe in. Celebrate love…there’s no *rule* that says it has to be romantic love, or that expression of it can only be via a box of chocolates or a dozen roses. Express your love for your family or friends or pets or whomever; let no one tell you how it “should” be done. If you want to goth it up, more power to you 🙂

  6. huh. Maybe it’s just me, I don’t see the point in attempting to make oneself miserable for no reason. Or pretending to be miserable, even. Valentines Day, to me, is a nice day to go out for dinner or something if I happen to be in a relationship, and just another day if I’m not.

    Never really understood why people think being single on valentines day is an event, but then, I don’t understand a lot of things that many people take for granted. 🙂

    Me? I’ll be celebrating the one year anniversary of having my beautiful, beautiful flogger. 🙂

  7. I think the wearing black with the dead roses on your desk would be way tooo funny. Valentines is overrated Hallmark holiday when your in love every day is Valentines… ( are you hurling now )
    hahahahahh sorry just could resist.

    see you friday looking forward to it, maybe we can find you a Valentines sweeite tomorrow night,heheheh i can play cupid for you….

  8. I’m always up for gothing things up!

    Another option would be to get a group of like-minded people and go out for fancy cocktails and group love!
