Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is a holiday celebrated on February 14, which just happens to be today. It's the "traditional" day on which lovers express their love for each other by sending Valentine's cards, presenting flowers, or offering some kind of confectionery.

The holiday is named after two early Christian martyrs named Valentine. The day became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. If only I was around back then to give him a swift kick in the balls, life would be much better for all (man)kind.

My day has been full of red and pink everything. There are roses and balloons. There are massive amounts of chocolate. I am really pissed about the chocolates because i can't eat any right now. Someone even brought in heart shape donuts to the office... what the @%$#!

I must say that I am not against Valentine's Day, just opposed to it!
