Me: chocolates I'm going to eat at least half of and a card that's not even funny.
Still begrudge buying both.
hope i aint in trouble
If stuff is reduced in waitrose later I might get some chocolates, might get the meal deal actually as you get them included
The one by the Barbican doesn't have a meal deal :(
one benefit of not being a LME...you get meal deals!
think m and s are doing them is there's one near you?
that I can share
Think it might be the first time I've ever bought anyone flowers. They cost a *fucking fortune*. If they don't turn up at her house tomorrow I'm gonna personally go and fuck Mr John Lewis up myself.
Gonna buy a load of random shite from Cyber Candy on the way up to hers this evening just as a backup plan.
they'll get The Free Coffee OAPs of Middle England onto you.
Stony broke as well
buy a crab to kill tomorrow.
and I expect nothing in return.
of normal well adjusted people in realistically maintainable relationships.
as he's bought me a brand new bike. This is possibly the first time ever we've done this even remotely like you're "meant" to. Still no card though, and tomorrow = drunk Six Nations, yay!
NB. We have a joint account so really we're just buying ourselves stuff.
It's not really for Valentines Day.
More that it's something he wants and I bought it because WHY NOT
when you, you know, tomorrow night.
and put the GPS on his plonker too.
Turn around when possible.
play safe kids
that's what she said
if his pace slows down.
looks nice I think
I expect nothing in return except maybe a smug feeling that once again I have won at gifts.
...in a heterosexual/cis/whatever couple whereby the man does stuff on Valentine's Day out of his own free will as opposed to feeling coerced?
I can't myself.
of `people on facebook` and `my friends/people I know` as if the former are just a random and unconnected collective that facebook has chosen to pipe onto your screen.
Anyone off to the 50 Shades premiere? Just IMAGINE the complete absence of thought/imagination to want to go and do that.
there's talk at my work of having a 'girls night out' to go and see it. the staff socials are weirdly segregated cause the bloke that used to organise one FOR THE LADS every other month was a proper sexist and enforced a 'no women allowed' policy - used to put posters up advertising them that said 'please remember, no ladies to attend'.
Don't get me wrong I like a bit of Lad Time™ as much as the next chap but conscious segregation is pretty vile.
on the boards who is going to insist that, far from being coerced into it by some terrifying brumhilde, he simpy loves 'treating his lil lady' and doting on her.
my mam uses 'nigel' for this
but I'm staying at hers and cooking for her. I've also written a nice note that I'm going to hide under her pillow before I leave on Sunday morning.
That'll have to do.
what'll it say?
(I really hope this site has handle posts starting with quotes nowadays)
to inevitably melt during the day?
Smart money would be on Xylopwn, but I'm not sure that's the case??
Oh, you've shat all over my pillow. You shouldn't have.
Might leave a pastry snack? Perhaps a Melton Mowbray pork pie.
And I can gently wake her by smothering her with it
Only do birthdays.
if the fact that my birthday is a few days before SVD is why I've never recognised it as something I should be insisting upon/ hinting about/ whatever. Maybe if I was a june birthday, I'd be quite up for some February gifts.
Actually, no. Never going to be a Thing for me.
my brother, wife and children are coming to stay for the weekend. so that?
that should be nice
I allow her in the main house.
she'll get a free burrito in Glasgow tomorrow though as I won some vouchers in a raffle.
buying some good wine (as opposed to the shit we normally drink) and cooking something nice. Though that's partly because we're not gonna have a weekend together until mid-March after this one.
I might make a card. I'm certainly not going to give THE MAN some money for one. Also I might buy some flowers - but not roses. That'll show that St Valentine prick who's boss.
That's it. I'm enough of a gift.
my wife would like that actually. she might allow us to recognise VD just for that card. you could have mentioed this much earlier so I could have stolen your idea.
and doesn't include anything about love. YAY.
staring at ex-friends photos on facebook, and if the weather is nice, crying on a park bench
Just a normal Saturday then!
We're off to Hakkasan for dim sum lunch, but that's not really anything to do with Valentine's day.
Might talk about removal companies and quotes in the evening. Sexy.
this was aimed at zahidf
but no one seems to do the novelty sized ones anymore
That first one was amazing.
but that's all she's getting. We're doing a trip to cambs the next day anyways so i feel like V day stuff is a bit unnecessary.
But we will almost definitely go to Pizza Express tomorrow to watch couples who hate each other choke down dough balls.
and a card from Lidl. She has got me a few bottles of interesting chilli sauce, I know this because I selected them and even paid for them myself.
Always a worry that she will sneakily buy me something expensive though.
not really been a valentines type for the most part anyway.
Have made a walking dead card and bought her the walking dead video game, and roses will be delivered. I'm hoping she got me cast chocolate buttholes.
We'll do what we did on the first valentines we spent together, when we were just friends as well. Pissing about, going bowling and then getting a curry.
might get a bunch of flowers, mainly cause they're nice to have around the house. it's her birthday in 10 days so she won't be expecting much tomorrow. Managed to get tickets to Derren Brown in April though so might reveal them tomorrow if she's got me something
by hypnotising her and making her think she's killed the neighbour for them.
`Yeah we're doing *thing* BUTONLYBECAUSE *other reason*` in this thread.
DiS is basically 99 per cent posturing, 1 per cent fish puns
Quite like this new found taste of the conceited highground. I feel smugger than 1,000 brusmas.
Long way to go to reach your levels of entrenched turbo-conceit but I'll get there. Don't think I won't get there.
of burns but that fucking rubbish and incoherent Michael Gove joke I made in the education thread should've called for a lot more mocking. It all balances out over the season etc. etc.
giving her the opportunity to pick up a few facebook likes. I think that'll do for this year.
to put frogs in buckets then observe them shagging until 4am
Balonz will love that!
but if I've learned anything from doing a tax return it's that the word "research" is very useful for explaining yourself
will likely utilise pop up technology
there's a picture of a train on it
we both got (by chance) the husband and wife version of a card from Sainsbury's with owls on them. Bit of a coincidence.
We opened them last night as she's gone away this weekend 'to watch athletics'. To take part more like. Bedroom athletics. Inconsiderate really.
Might get flowers I suppose as she's been nagging me about never buying her flowers.
Got one earlier this week cos I'd forgotten about the one I'd got a couple of weeks ago.
usually a few days before valentine's day my bf just double checks and says 'not doing anything, yeah' but this year he hasn't said a word!
I know he knows it's valentines day because he was moaning about people at work having today off to go away for valentines weekend.
So I'm thinking hmm, I wonder
and the queue was snaking all the way outside, at least 50 blokes who probably spent Christmas Eve in a similar fashion.
You'll find out tomorrow ...
