it's valentine's day!  yay.  if my last post was any indication, i'm obviously not super into participating in events that foster unreal expectations (and therefore almost always come with disappointment).  i don't like getting so totally carried away with how television tells me things ought to be that i can't enjoy things are they are. things that often get corrupted by media: christmas, thanksgiving, birthdays, new year's eve, valentine's day.  that's not to say i don't love holidays.  i am my mother's child.  i could decorate you all under the table.  i am a sucker for party stores and i am obsessed with making things memorable.  i just don't think memorable often syncs with traditional (in the box of chocolates, bouquet of flowers sense).  i will love luke regardless of whether or not he buys me a diamond necklace because no, not every kiss begins with kay.  (i also kinda take offense to the idea that the purest way to prove to a woman that you love her is to buy her diamonds and chocolates once a year.)

so anyway, what are luke and i doing for valentine's day?  i'm scouring the interwebs for jobs that aren't scams/panicking about how i haven't made any money in four weeks and luke's doing graphic design work for a local bookstore.  tonight, we'll probably eat leftovers and maybe i'll make some cookies/brownies.  we'll also watch some really embarrassing tv shows that i'm not even going to name (let's just say they're on abc family).
