cellomusette: (fish lips me)
Time was, I hated Valentine's Day with a passion. For several years, I celebrated Anti-Valentine's Day. I wore all black, and a necklace of red paper hearts with holes burnt through the middle. I drank schnapps in the bubble bath while listening to Billie Holiday and smoking cloves. Sometimes, I even did things like paste broken mirror shards on my door and create anti V-day propaganda.

(Actually, that ritual was pretty damned cool, maybe I'll bring parts of it back just 'cause.)

This all changed in 2002, when I decided instead to wear metalic-heart boxers to work (on the outside of my pants) and pass out Dove chocolate hearts with confetti to my coworkers. I realized that although I can be a dark, cutting cynic, I'm also a big old frickin' sap, too, and it's OK. The delight expressed by my coworkers that day really lifted my spirits, and made me realize that I can use V-Day to celebrate the non-romantic loves in my life.

And so, I'm wishing all of you a very happy Valentine....may your year be filled with love of many kinds.

(There. Done being a sap now. Feel free to change the channel.) :)
