what to do about VD

Post by Natasha (candygirl) » Feb 11th 2005, 5:08 pm

That's Valentine's Day! I know we talked about the holiday a little bit in this thread, but I thought we could talk about Valentine's Day plans - romantic or otherwise.

As I said in the aforementioned thread, my boyfriend and I celebrate our anniversary at the beginning of the the month, so we don't make a huge deal out of Valentine's Day. Tonight we are going to see a burlesque show with the Lollies, tomorrow we are going to a Nina Hartley event, and then Monday we are going to see a staging of The Vagina Monologues. One of the things I love about living here is that they have alternatives to the usual candlelit dinner Valentine's Day!

I read The Vagina Monologues a few years ago and have always wanted to see it done live, but I tend to forget about it until it's too late to get tickets and then make a mental note to remember the next year. For anyone who is interested in finding a local staging, go to http://www.vday.org

What to do about VD?
:shock:
Um, penicillin?

I know, I'm naughty. I recommend tea candles to any guy in a relationship, they look great and they are 20 for a buck. This year I'll probably be downtown looking for someone lonely who needs, um, "reasurance". But there is a girl with whom I've been trying to meet up with. She's scheduled to call on Sunday, perhaps it might work out to do something together Monday night, but it's rather cliche. Either way, it'll be a bottle of wine and a movie kind of thing, regardless what night it occurs on.

Hee - remember when VD was the acronym of choice, way before STD became the politically correct term?

NM knows what's going on - tea lights are the way to go! I buy the 50 pack at Ikea so that I am always prepared for any occasions that might require candlelight. Very handy considering that our power usually goes out at least once a year due to a storm (or construction crews).

A movie sounds good. I have neglected my Netflix list, so when I sent our last movie back on Monday, I forgot to see what would be coming to our house for the weekend. Instead of a light romantic comedy, our Valentine's Day movie choices are now Cruel Intentions, Unfaithful, or 25th Hour.

:oops:

or maybe those might work for ya. Cruel Intentions and Unfaithful have a few scenes that might get you in the mood. :twisted:

myself? well, I'll be studying for contemporary art. this class is simply killing me! ha ha. you know, I've never been in a relationship on valentine's day. always right before, or right after. no matter, as I posted in the other thread, I'm not too fond of the "holiday."

oh, but a good date movie to see is A Very Long Engagement. (where my new avatar comes from) I just saw it last night and it's great. made by the same director and cinematographer as Amelie. so if it is still out in you area, take advantage. both males and females will like it. and it's not sappy, so that's a plus.

Every Saturday night my boyfriend and I make a new different meal together - no boxes or packets! So, we will probably do that. He's saying he wants to go to a restaurant, but I don't think we have the money for that (college students, you know). But our usual Saturday night thing is fine with me. We don't have to do anything out of the ordinary. He's coming to my concert tonight, so maybe we'll go out for a drink after.
Um, in my room, one seam is a little off and I stare at it constantly. It's, like, destroying me.

Possibly a glass of chilled merlot and a conversation with a friend.

The burlseque show was awesome! It's funny - I used to be the shy kind of person who would sit in the back, but now I look for the closest spot to the front (could just be my increasingly bad vision that prompts me to do this). I love sitting in the front now! And it definitely has its privileges - one dancer fed my boyfriend chocolate during her act, another dancer put some chocolate down my shirt, and they brought us onstage to dance at the end of the show. It was lots of fun and the band was great!

Sadly, we had to skip the Nina Hartley event on Saturday due to Yahoo giving us crappy directions which dumped us onto the wrong freeway going in the opposite direction, which got us stuck in traffic on an overpass without any exit for miles.

:(

We thought it would be fun to bring a picture of us with Nina to his uncle's birthday party because she is an old friend of his.

:mrgreen:

C'est la vie!

Yesterday the weather was absolutely beautiful here in KC, and I was at my apartment composing around 4pm when my bf called me and asked me if I wanted to go for a walk since it was so nice out. We took a walk around a park nearby our apartments and he made me a simple pasta dinner after. It was impromptu and sweet... and free! One of the best v-day surprises I've had. I was just expecting to compose all evening and do nothing romantic. :D

We don't make a big deal out of VD (heh), so we my husband surprised me with dinner (he made fondue) and we watched our shows together.

I miss when I was living at home. My dad would get my mom a dozen roses, and he would get a single rose for each of my sisters and me. :D
