    Was wondering what you gents are doing for the fateful day. Although I realize it's mostly a hyped holiday meant to inspire love & affection, we all could do with this any day of the year, IMHO.

    Me, calling my Mom (I am happily still single myself), giving her a hug and perhaps making a nice meal for her.

    What about you folks?

    Nice idea, but I'm not calling your Mom.

    Not a bad idea, was thinking of tenderloin and some grilled bacon green beans, from allthingsbbq.com

    Mom would love to hear from you. (Just put in a good word for me with her, and Mom would be happy. No need for gifts, chocolates, or flowers. A kind word is enough.) You can always ask your own Mom how she's been and if she could use a few words of encouragement.

    Are you insinuating that my emailing this thread to her was bad?

    Oh, good! Did you have lunch with her? (Mom usually has a sandwich or piece of fruit for lunch when she's away for the day. I'll ask her how she got on with you later today...) :)

    My sweetheart and I have a long distance relationship. She lives in MN and I live in NC. It's gonna be another 2 years before we can combine households. I've made reservations for each of us in a BBQ restaurant with wifi. Hers is near her there in Minneapolis and mine is across town here in Greensboro. We will set across the table from our computers and see the other one on the screen. We've done it for 7 years now. It's not as good as the real thing, of course, but she recognizes the effort and that is what matters.

    Some candles, new lingerie, a sweet playlist of Sade and Barry White playing... a Mr. Turtle pool filled with chocolate pudding, and a smaller-ish pineapple.

    The wife’s working late that night so I should have plenty of time to clean it up before she gets home... should be pretty sweet.

    On actual Valentine's Day? Taking 10 guitars to a dealer to sell. Should make the wife happy. I'll be a little sad.

    This weekend? Heart shaped tacos, of course!

    It's nice to know that you love yourself, but shouldn't you also love your S.O.? (If you're single, like myself, just nod and say, "Mmm-hmm.")
