    Lol! My girlfriend doesn't live in the same country, so I already got a lot of nice Valentines gifts here that I'm going to have to decorate and put together in a box and then send it.

    Yeah, I know how romantic... NOT! But, atleast she will unpack it with me on the cam and on the speaker . Did it like that last year too, and it was pretty fun then. Probably send her a bunch of roses to be delivered at her door too.

    Regards,

    Mourning

    Our baby is due 4 days before that.

    No Valentine's Day action for me.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I'm going to send my annual package to Mr. Tom Daschle. This time I won't include the scented powdered soap that his co-workers apparently had a huge problem with. They shouldn't be snooping in his mail anyways.

    No, but seriously now, I ordered some flowers online. Not cheap ones either. They should arrive about the same time as my mail-order bride (I know what you're thinking, but we've decided to take it slow)...you know what, I should have gotten them sent together for Super Shipper Savings! Well, there's always next year I guess.



    I'm so lonely. So very lonely.

    (Oh yeah, and it's good to see you back rcarey)

    Valentine's day is perhaps the worst holiday of the year. Well, actually New Years is.

    Both of those holidays are founded on the idea that everywhere areound you, all sorts of people are having a much better time than you are.

    Scrooge :: Christmas
    as
    LA :: invented couples "holidays"



    p.s.
    Yes, I will be getting flowers and cooking my wife a fantastic candlelight dinner. I may be a grouch, but I'm no fool.

    Anthem,

    I'm going to look on the internet for gag candy hearts. I don't know if I'll find any, but that will be about the extent of my romanticism. I'm too sarcastic for Valentines day. He should just be thankful for the candy.

    Actually Jr. is fretting so much over this that I haven't had time to consider what I'm doing for the wife. He has his first 'real" GF and V-day happens to be their "1 month anniversary"....I ain't asking "OF WHAT?"

    I need to think of something good. I already have the meaningful (probably a.k.a. cheesy) thing done/planned...it's just a matter of a good old consumer product now.
    What you got planned? Does it involve singing and/or dancing? As much as I like to tout my manliness (and believe me, I'm very manly. Like, really manly. In fact, I'm so manl...I digress), I am a sucker for that movie "10 Things I Hate About You" in which there's a singing and dancing scene. It's pretty cool.



    Ummm...if there's anyone who still respects me, you'd probably want to keep it to yourself...

    Card makers capitalize on 'anti-V Day'

    By CONNIE MABIN, AP Business Writer
    1 hour, 29 minutes ago



    CLEVELAND - For Lori Schwartz, a happy mom with a decade of wedded bliss under her belt, the greeting card featuring a bloodied, ripped out heart was perfect.

    "It's Valentine's Day, so here's a card with a heart inside," it read. "I'd tell you whose it is, but the less you know, the better."

    "My husband and I never get nice cards for each other. We're not into sentiments," Schwartz said while perusing an aisle of "anti-Valentine's Day" cards at an American Greetings Corp. store. "I expect to get something just as bad, but I may have one upped him this year."

    Sensing a growing trend ? and more potential customers ? American Greetings has started a new line of expressions for lovers who'd rather be big goofs than big flirts. There are cards for singles not struck by Cupid's arrow and those with general disdain for Feb. 14, too.

    From night club parties to bar-hopping bus tours for singles ? and plenty of purposely loveless merchandise to go along with them ? the anti-Valentine's Day crowd is proving to be an opportunity for some businesses.

    "For everyone, Valentine's Day isn't just about hearts and roses," said Alana Campana, Valentine's Day program manager at Cleveland-based American Greetings. "It's really an unmet market."

    And potentially huge.

    Valentine's Day is the second-biggest holiday behind Christmas for card makers, with 190 million valentines ? 85 percent bought by women ? being sent each year, excluding classroom exchanges, Campana said.

    So marketers saw an opening when the U.S. Census Bureau reported earlier this year that 51 percent, or 61 million, of the nation's women are single, outnumbering married females for the first time.

    Ellen Garbarino, a marketing professor at Case Western Reserve University, said it makes sense for businesses to tap into singles because the segment of anti-Valentine's supporters who are against the premise of an invented holiday are a harder sell.

    For singles, "a lot of it is, 'I'm going to refuse to sit here and wallow,'" Garbarino said. "This makes it a more marketing-friendly (anti-Valentine's) holiday version."

    Popular this season are anti-Valentine's Day events, including a "Love Bites the Hand that Feeds It" cabaret show by the Lesbian/Gay Chorus of San Francisco.

    The Internet abounds with links to anti-Valentine's Day message boards, blogs and products such as "Love Kills Slowly" shot glasses.

    Twinsburg High School in northeast Ohio billed its Edgar Allan Poe Festival as an anti-Valentine's Day event, featuring a reading of the murderous "The Tell-Tale Heart."

    Cleveland Barhopper sold out two of its purple buses for its second annual AVD event.

    "We just found that dating services and a lot of singles were attracted to our bus tours and so we just decided to bill this one the anti-Valentine's Day bus tour," said owner Charles Peirce. "It's just a good, mobile party."

    The Corner Alley, an upscale bowling alley and nightclub in downtown Cleveland, is throwing a "Love ... Spare Me!" party promising nonromantic music and "love stinks" drink specials.

    "Everybody seems to do something for couples and I think people forget that there are a lot of single people out there," said Adam Kleinhenz, general manager of the Corner Alley, where among the AVD activities will be a version of "The Dating Game."

    Matt Brick, of Sacramento, Calif., who runs antivday.com and SinglesAwareness.com, said he's not surprised American Greetings and others are trying to cash in on the trend.

    The self-described happily married man said his sites' "I Think, Therefore I am Single" T-shirts and stickers launched last year are big sellers. The sites encourage people to celebrate Feb. 14 by volunteering or spending it with friends.

    "It is not just single people who dislike the holiday. Many people who are married or in a relationship don't like the holiday either," Brick said. "The holiday creates a lot of pressure, both emotionally and financially."
