Ah Valentine’s Day…

The pagan holiday that the Christians tried to stamp out/convert to their own purposes which has really been degraded down to a publicity blitz for jewelry, candy and greeting cards.  Shame really, because running around naked and whacking people to increase fertility and virility is really a lost art (See Lupercalia).

Anyway, I celebrated as tradition dictated:  Watched porn and went to work from 2PM to 1oPM while trying not to get more depressed than usual.  Actually, to be honest, I’ve been feeling pretty good lately.  Self-confidence is still lacking, but that’s coming along.  I can actually stand to look at myself without a shirt on, which is a pretty big step forward.  Starting to work on the other stuff now.

But yeah, I’m not entirely convinced that a major part of Valentine’s Day in the modern day isn’t to just make people feel bad for being alone.

    HAHA nice blog post!

    And I agree about Valentine’s Day. It’s pretty pointless and over-commercialized.
