Friend Making Monday: Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day

Here’s how it works: you copy the questions, answer them and post them to your own blog.  Then you come back here, and in the comments, post the link to your blog post with your answers to this week’s questions.  If you don’t have a blog of your own, just post your answers in the comments.

1. How was your Valentine’s Day?  What did you do?
I had to work and I’m single anyway, so it’s mostly just another day for me.

2. When you were a kid, did you exchange valentines in school with your classmates?
Yes, I loved it.  I loved picking out what valentines I would give to everyone else and I loved seeing which ones they picked out.  I wasn’t ever a popular child in school so I didn’t usually get a valentine from everybody in the class, which was sad, but I didn’t let it get me down.

3. What was your best Valentine’s Day date/day/etc?
Even though the guy ended up being a horrible person to me and cheating on me, when Valentine’s Day came around, we had only been together for a month so we were definitely still twitterpated with each other and he was all about spending money on me, so he took me to Truluck’s, which is a very high end surf and turf restaurant in Austin, TX.  I think our meal was $150.  We got crabcakes for appetizers (there were 2, 1 for each of us).  I got a sirloin medallion and the biggest shrimp I’ve seen in my life and I’m pretty sure there was asparagus or something else on the plate.  But, yea, it wasn’t a whole lot of food, but it was extremely yummy, the environment was gorgeous, there was a live piano player in the restaurant playing for the diners/couples and we got a free romantic music CD to take home.  It was a gorgeous dinner.

4. Do you like Valentine’s Day? 
Meh.  I do but I don’t.  I’m sure the reasons I like it are the same as other people’s reasons.  The reasons I don’t are that it’s a completely invented holiday that is just for companies to make more money and, here’s the main one, you shouldn’t need a special day to show/tell the person/people you love that you love them.  You should be doing that year-round.

5. What is your favorite Valentine’s Day treat?
I love cupcakes!
6. Do you have any Valentine’s Day traditions?
I have a relatively new one with my friend Amanda that we started last year.  We give each other a list of movies we want and then we pick a couple/few from the list the other gave them and buy them for them.

7. What is your least favorite thing about Valentine’s Day?
It’s commercially all about romantic love and, well, I’m single and not in any kind of romantic relationship.

8. Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day?  Share a picture if you do.

9. What is the best present you have ever received for Valentine’s Day?
The movies Amanda got for me last year. 

10. Is there something you like to do for people you love on Valentine’s Day?
If I was someone that liked to or even had time to volunteer, I would probably go volunteer at an animal shelter for Valentine’s Day.
