Yes, I'm starting another thread on this to not hijack PG

I got BIG time brownie points this year.

My wife's birthday was last week and I had a portrait done of all 4 of the kids (unreal likeness BTW) For V-day she got one of those Vermont bears and a dozen roses. 1st year for the dozen roses, I usually get just regular flowers.

She usually gets the (2) little ones ready for the sitters in the morning, so I got up while she was in the shower and put her card in the littlest ones hands while he slept. He actually hung onto it until she got in there.

HD7 GOOOOOOOOOD hubby...pant, pant, pant...


Hicks, I know you'll need to move this, I just didn't think it would get a lot of action over there to start with.

My wife and I don't buy into the Valentine's hype machine, either.

Why?

Because every day is Valentine's at OUR house. :)

So, did you get the Bob and Tom special?!


Also, for those who don't celebrate it, why does it have to be about the romantic products companies conspiring to steal your money at the premise of guilt for not recognizing your love of someone? Can't it, for once, be about enjoying life and not being a non-conformist for the sake of non-conformity?

I swear, if I took life that seriously, I would probably jump off a building.

Halloween is dumb too, but the kids sure get a kick out of dressing up and getting to know our neighbors a little better, while enhancing our sense of community.

Look for the positives!!

Sorry for the rant, but sometimes that whole angle of thinking gets to me a little. Not a personal attack on anyone; in fact, I completely support everyone's ability to make their own choices.

Dan Patrick special.

free vase, free chocolates, dozen roses for 39.99, tax and delivery made it $54 I think.

I would have paid 35-40 for the roses alone at a florist here so I thought it was a deal.

SWEET!

I got the B&T special, which was two dozen, field cut yesterday (as far as I know!) roses, free vase. Delivered to me for $54.

I had them delivered to me first because my wife works in the same building as me, and I wanted to personally deliver them when I asked her to go to lunch with me today. Also, I had a feeling that they would come all unromantically packed in a cardboard box, so I wanted to arrange them and make them look purty before I gave them to her...

Thanks for validating my point. I buy my wife flowers on this day because I like to see the look on her face when I walk into her office with them.

Who cares who came up with the holiday? It makes my wife happy....I'm not going to stop doing it because I feel "manipulated". It's my choice to do it, and your choice to not.

No, it's simply that one time of year that you can take time out and make it special for the one you love. What's arong with that?

Don't feel bad that you're not in the Valentine's business and you're missing out on making all of that money.

Another year, I gave her a certificate for a pedicure/mainicure and booked a flight for a trip to her favorite vacation spot with a handmade certificate annoucing the flight.

There are so many georgous flowers out there, why roses? Cause the TV tells you to? Man, there are some inexpensive, beautiful flowers out there that would really surprise her and touch her. Roses? The ultimate cliche to me.

I love the concept of Valentine's day. I hate the concept of the no brainer gift pack. How is that special? When I say I don't buy into the Valentine's hype machine, I mean I don't buy into having marketrs tell you what to get her. Be creative! If it's so infrequent that you buy her flowers that roses on Valetine's Day is special, maybe some of you'd better re-think things. (okay, THAT will get them going.)

Not sure about the chocolates and teddy bears thing, but if her favorite flowers are roses, what's wrong with that? I guess she is manipulated by the media to like roses and she should automatically NOT like them because they are a cliche....That's about the dumbest thing I've ever read. I've been with her for 11 years, 9 of them in marriage. I have a pretty good idea about what makes her happy. Respecting the tradition of getting her favorite flowers for her on Valentine's Day...yeah, I must be the dumbest, most easily swayed person on the planet.



Special to me is, well, doing something special, not the exact same thing every other guy in the country is doing.

Like I care what anyone else is doing for their wives. That's like saying if everyone else is getting her a big steaming turd, that is what I would do to, just because those insanely clever marketers are telling me to get her a turd.




Okay, I don't mean to sound all curmudgeony, edit(but I'm going to anyway) but making it a special day to me means, well......doing something special. Frex, One Valentine's day, I made a video slideshow with photos of all the vacations we've taken. I put it on DVD.

I take 200-300 pictures a month. I make slideshows and burn them to dvd for everyone in my family all the time....YAWN.<YAWN>



Another year, I gave her a certificate for a pedicure/mainicure and booked a flight for a trip to her favorite vacation spot with a handmade certificate annoucing the flight.

Those damn marketers convinced you that your wife would like someone else doing her nails for her, or that wasting money on fancy toe/fingernails was a good idea, huh?
The flight to a favorite vacation spot is not bad, but we usually save our vacations that require a flight for our anniversary, not such an insignificant, marketed holiday as Valentine's Day. We would rather spend our money on the good stuff for a date that means more to us personally.



There are so many georgous flowers out there, why roses?


Again, she LOVES them. Man, what a weak minded fool she must be...to love roses because a TV told her to rather than because she and her mother grew several different varieties in their flower garden when she was growing up, or anything foolish like that.



Cause the TV tells you to?

Boy, you really have a keen sense of.....jumping to conclusions



Man, there are some inexpensive, beautiful flowers out there that would really surprise her and touch her. Roses? The ultimate cliche to me.

I buy my wife flowers of this variety all the time....Not every week or every other, but maybe when I know from talking to her that it has been a particularly tough day for her, or she has done something really sweet for me, or just because something that day reminded me of how much I love her.



I love the concept of Valentine's day. I hate the concept of the no brainer gift pack. How is that special?

Now, this statement I can actually agree with. I don't like a no-brainer gift pack. I don't care for the guys that buy their stuff the day before Valentine's Day, or do it at Wal-Mart after browsing for about two minutes. Of course, I don't jump to conclusions and be judgmental, because maybe a Wal-Mart gift is all they can afford that year, or maybe they are so busy being a good husband and father, and working two or three jobs to provide for their families, that maybe the night before was the only time they had...



When I say I don't buy into the Valentine's hype machine, I mean I don't buy into having marketrs tell you what to get her. Be creative!

The be creative part is great, assuming that someone has fallen victim to the "evil marketers" is something else entirely.



If it's so infrequent that you buy her flowers that roses on Valetine's Day is special, maybe some of you'd better re-think things. (okay, THAT will get them going.)

That was not necessary. I won't really resond to the meat of that statement because it is insulting.



(LOL, I know I'm probably pissing off a ton of guys....:stirthepo)
No, just me, probably. I really had no desire to go off like this on a day that I am usually happy to be celebrating the fact that I'm in love with someone who is the mother of my children, and someone I consider to be the most beautiful woman on the planet.

But since you need to stir the pot and be judgemental, I figured I might as well respond. Next time, maybe save the empty rhetoric and jumping to conclusions for the Politics board.

The main thing that annoyed me about your ranting in this thread was that it just had to come on a day when people are generally happy and thinking about someone other than themselves for a change. It just seemed like you were pissing on our parade, and I take exception with that.

No personal attacks included. I don't know you at all, let alone well enough to make statements about the person you are. Reading statements like you made in this thread leads me to draw some initial conclusions about you, but I certainly don't want to jump to any.

Hope you can see this post for what it was; one guy defending his right to make his own choices and not be chided or judged for them.

After all that, you're saying that you were just 'teasing'? You oughta be able to do better than that.

When there are smileys or the obvious tone of teasing present, it's pretty easy to distinguish. There was none of that; only insinuation that anyone who falls for the trappings of mainstream marketing on an obviously commercialized holiday was a Pavlovian robot, etc....

Well, here is exactly how you presented it.....

If it's so infrequent that you buy her flowers that roses on Valetine's Day is special, maybe some of you'd better re-think things. (okay, THAT will get them going.)
(LOL, I know I'm probably pissing off a ton of guys....<!--[if gte vml 1]><v:shape id="_x0000_i1026" type="#_x0000_t75" alt="" style='width:18.75pt;height:18.75pt'> <v:imagedata src="file:///C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\msohtml1\03\cli p_image002.gif" o:href="http://www.pacersdigest.com/forums/images/smilies/stirthepot.gif"/> </v:shape><![endif]--><!--[if !vml]-->:stirthepo<!--[endif]-->)

If you don't think that is obviously pissing on a parade, then all of this is wasted on you anyway...

Even if it is just me you pissed off, passing it off as joking is a pretty lame way to make amends, let alone posting something patronizing that is aimed at making me feel like I'm the one being a jerk.

If you meant it the way you posted it, oh well. Not the first time I've not enjoyed your posting. I'm just sorry I wasted the time trying to make points countering your statements.

If you meant it the way you say you meant it, you need to do a better job of conveying what you mean.

Either way, it's threads like this and posters like you that make me not post much.

Hard not to read them when they are in direct relation to my own posts.

Does it really matter if it is ONLY me that has a problem? Something tells me that if YOU had the problem, I'd certainly hear about it.

LMAO....you are taking things way too personal and taking things way more seriously than I presented it or anyone else is taking it. I am jokingly chiding everyone and teasing. Enjoy a chocolate, smell a rose and enjoy your special, special day. No way I should have any impact on it. Come now. :hug2::pillow::girlfight


jerk... :rolleyes:

I got obnoxiousmodesty a heart-shaped pizza from Papa Murphy's, a six-pack of Mountain Dew, a big heart-shaped Reese's cup, and a bunch of yellow tulips. Romantic, ain't I?

He dropped in my office unexpectedly with double chocolate muffins. And spent the evening at home with me instead of going back to work. Not to mention watching Rent with me at the campus theater last weekend and taking me to try out a new restaurant. Oh, and he wrote me a sonnet (sort of). Am I embarrassing you yet Neal? ;)

Eh, we're broke. And it's the small things that count, right?

Right?

:leaving:

Who needs proof? Anybody who thinks you wear the pants in this relationship obviously hasn't spent any time with us. ;)

I love being the guy in this relationship. :flex:

I got my wife a gold birthsotne ring with the stone shaped like a heart. It matches the ear rings and braclet I have gotten her on Christmases past. We then enjoyed a nice grilled steak and lobster dinner at home.

Good thing she isn't aware of what yellow roses mean......

Yellow Roses
Yellow roses indicate friendship and freedom -- so don't send them if your intentions are romantic and long-lasting. Yellow roses are also appropriate for sending congratulations to newlyweds, graduates, Texans, and new mothers.
