The Big VD

It's Valentine's Day again. Almost. Cubic zirconia will never be good enough for this holiday, no sir. On Valentine's day, it just isn't love if you don't get real diamonds, Swiss chocolate, expensive flower arrangements, restaurant reservations that had to be made six months in advance...

Tacky heart-shaped jewelry will masquerade as true love, red silk lingerie as affection, and lovers will be enamoured of the gifts they've exchanged rather than each other's eyes.

Valentine's day just screams fake to me. It doesn't mean love. It means pumping money into the economy, under the guise of showing your true feelings. Because if you don't buy your lover a fancy musical card, you have no heart.

Then again, I might just be bitter because my boyfriend is far away.
