Bear in mind that the "today" the OP is referring to is St. Valentine's Day.  There were 3 of them.  All martyrs.  Hmm.....

Same thing I do every year: Crying into a pint of "Extreme Moose Tracks" ice cream while listening to Simon and Garfunkel on repeat. Duh.

Nothing.  She's at work tonight and I'll be hanging with a couple of hommies - one who is married and the other is gay.  The first doesn't celebrate V-Day (and nor does the missus (wonderful, exquisite woman, btw)) and the second is single.

(But I bought her a rose and some chocolates on Tuesday.   ;))

V-Day means nothing for us. We celebrated yesterday - not only are Saints Aquila and Priscilla much more suitable patrons for a married couple, it was also our engagement anniversary.

My ex-boyfriend (and current best friend) hates V-Day with a virulent passion. In the nearly five years we dated, I shared his view. It happens to be his birthday, and finding somewhere to have a decent celebratory meal without a kitsch overdose was an ordeal in itself. :-\

I'm going to pop over to my sis's and give her kids (my godchildren) some chocolates and little stuffed bears for the girls.  They are the true loves of my life!  :D

....then I'm going to stop and get a pizza and go home and share it with my mom, whom I also love dearly...

What more could a girl ask for?   

Well....I was waiting for the receptionist to ring and tell me there was a gorgeous bouquet waiting for me up front.....maybe next year!   :angel:

I spent my day as a third wheel with my two married friends. With the wife I gossiped, with the husband I smoked pipe. With both, I ate nice Nepalese meal.

Well I'd be happy to correct the situation if you have any suitable wife candidates. ;)

I don't have a special someone...I spent the day doing backbreaking work with my cousin remodeling some old Victorian house; I had to lift 105 boxes (38-40lbs each) of wooden flooring up a steep flight of stairs over and over again. On the plus side, I made $80.

I stopped by my local on the way home to have a drink or two with my girlfriend-less friends only to find an empty bar.  Just me and the bartender.  All my normal brothers in brew were home. 

So I went home, waited for the wife to come home from work, made her dinner and hung out a bit, and then she went out to have a drink with a friend of hers while I worked on some music.

Basically, a normal Thursday night.
