Its on a friday night.
What are you doing?
So that, probably.
Hate Valentines Day.
I don't hate it but I don't love it. I think we'll just go pub.
but I keep seeing the LEGO trailer so the fact it's out that day is seared into my mind. I'm very excited about it.
It was okay. Not much lego though.
(i've never been)
He enjoyed it so you never know.
and it'll be nothing but excited at taking kids to lego movie the next week HALFTERM.
and legoland is pretty good if you go out of school holidays...true on the not as much lego as you;d think, more a theme park but the star wars bit was pretty cool
It didn't exist in the UK when I was a kid and mad into LEGO. Mum says she was always really upset she couldn't afford to take me there but I don't recall ever asking or expecting to go, it just sounded kind of amazing.
a day for couples unable to show love and appreciation for each other 364 days a year to fumble around desperately trying to make their failing and unsatisfying relationship seem successful and rewarding
but I don't grudge others who do mark it because that would be CHURLISH, BRUSMA ;)
(It annoys me a bit, mainly because my birthday falls a few days before it, which means I always have to celebrate my birthday the weekend before, because the weekend closest to valentine's day it is imposisble to get a tbale at decent places, prices gop up (or are nasty set menus) and then it's so stilted and couply. Annoying.
why are we even ON the internet?
Also eat Jelly Beans n' cry
Given last year was spent in a hospital whilst she had minor surgery and that was our first one. Feel like I should do something a bit nice this year and then let it fade away into an annual thing to largely ignore.
portraits for you? Amazing Deal as well is that I will charge only for the picture I Keep for my own use. That would be a real special memory for you both (and me) to keep.
Let Me Know.
Office is open for everyone BTW.
As I am off work again.
I'm making this a new thing, always taking that day off. (except next year it's on a saturday.)
Bird doesn't like it; I don't like it. Perfectly happy with this.
so might just stay in with whatever food deal M&S will inevitably do.
Failing that, Doctor Who marathon.
"WANNA COME HOME WITH ME AND WATCH A DR WHO MARATHON?"
our tradition is bowling then a curry, kind of anti ott romance cheap fun date thing I guess.
Feb 20th is her Birthday
March 8th is our anniversary
March 27th is my Birthday
So we tend to just keep it simple and do extra spoiling/romance stuff on the other dates.
probably too short to do summat romantic.
then driving to wigan for bro in laws wedding on the 15th.
probably stop for a pub lunch on the way, but not much else really. valentines day is crap.
but going the week before, because it was about half the price. Romantic and thrifty. (And because this way Mr Valentines-Day-is-stupid can convince himself he's not taking part. Though I'm sure we'll still have a nice dinner or something on the day.)
what a winner
there's no reason why he couldn't be double noined by mid March (might need to get a rib or two removed.)
is apparently why one of the football lads at uni got injured and was unable to play for a few weeks with a strain in his back.
According to him he achieved bell by going upside down, shoulders on the floor up against a wall and pulling legs forwards. Seemed pretty proud of it.
a month in advance?
^ example of me (an indie) being sexist (like a rapper)
so some people
Balonz will arrive home after work on Feb 14th to find sexybum smashing one out over his wife's tits.
whilst people are inside eating not caring
Will be two weeks into our new flat so will be awesome!
Might take home a lady that night, might not. Or i might be seeing someone by then so i'd go out dancing with her too maybe, who knows it's about a month away, anything can happen!
Regardless i'm not bothered and don't begrudge others who care. ANTIBANTS
Pay day is the Monday after. ffs.
it's a month away. chill out.
Taking her to Berlin the week after
Spent last valentines in Berlin actually. In Berghain no less. Not very romantic
I'm open to offers this year, Manchester disers.
Posh hotel in Brighton for the weekend, nice meal, tour of the pavillion and afternoon tea. Jobs a good'un.
What else is there to do in Brighton that will be nice?
Record shopping in Resident Records. Then Dave's Comics across the road.
There's some big market or something isn't there? She loves all that shit.
Brighton is a lovely place for a little weekend away. I really like it. The Duke of York Picturehouse is good for a film, too.
It's too windy to do 'owt else.
Start of a boring story.
Took the girlfriend to Brighton for an anniversary one year, online booking didn't require a deposit for some reason, so when I checked in/out they charged me half the normal room rate. Saved about £150 quid. Lovely old job. End of a boring story.
there's always stuff to do and a few nice pubs to drink in. If you've got time in the evening then maybe go to the Duke of York cinema? Normally some good stuff on.
but don't have any strong opinions on others doing it.
It's the day Her comes out, so going to see that on my own probably.
I organised a LAD pub crawl for 15 Feb.
The TV is well briefed.
If she's pretending she's ok with it
Less Than Jake and Reel Big Fish playing shepherds bush. Going to be a sweaty one!
then sit at home and eat it while watching the 10 o'clock news.
Someone be my valentine and make it happen
Working Man Noise Unit
Sly and the Family Drone
I'm bound to have some sort of romantic encounter!
Don't ever do anything to celebrate it but people wanking on about it is a great reminder that it's very nearly Pancake Day. Fuck yes!
I mean there's not a single 'masturbate furiously while crying and listening to Brainbombs' post I can ^this
he asked me to ask theo to unban him. but i forgot and then by the time I rembered theo had gone down (sorry, I mean DOWN UNDER) (HMP Wormwood Scrubs) for a stretch. but now theo's back out (sorry, 'back') and so I should really make the request again on joe's behalf.
...so most likely Crobar then. At least I know it'll all be single bearded men in there.
Other half works at the venue, was very amusing when we both gave our 'sorry I'm going to be busy' speech
