I just googled "valentine's day ideas" and found the following list which is making me laugh quite considerably:


1. Leave a small note saying "I LOVE YOU" beside her pillow to make her day begin with some romance in the air.

2. Don't go to office and spend it with your spouse.

3. Prepare Valentine cake in the shape of HEART.

4. Take her out for a long romantic drive.

5. Send bouquet of Roses with a love note.

6. Leave a small gift hidden in some corner of home with clues to its where about.

7. Don't buy a card, rather make it yourself (& it works).

8. Go Dancing together.

9. Buy a nice set of lingerie/briefs.

10. Write a sincere, wonderful love letter.

11. Give her/him a nice sensuous message.

12. Kiss and Hug your spouse often.

13. Decorate the house especially for your spouse on Valentine's Day.

14. Propose your spouse again.

15. Arrange a special Valentine's dinner for your parents (at least an hours drive from home) and arrange a Valentine bash, for your sweetheart at your house.

16. Play chess

17. List down twenty-five things that you like about your sweetheart and fifty things that you don't like. (Count yourself lucky if the second list does not exceed ten, but kick yourself in the @#$$ if you manage to list fifty)

18. Confess…

19. Sketch something for your sweetie pie.

20. Cook a special dish (If it's your first attempt, keep those antacids handy).

21. Just take time out to express your feelings, thoughts, fears and even fantasies to her.

22. Prank: Give your valentine the keys of your new car and then tell her that it's the only the keys you can afford now.

23. Take a long walk holding each other's hands.

24. Brush or comb her/his hair

25. Let her sleep while you watch over the children

26. Read out romantic/erotic poetry to your Valentine

27. Start saving for a special holiday fund for the two of you

28. Make New Year resolutions together (though it's kinda late for that) and try to follow them.

29. Exchange a list containing each other's likes and dislikes.

30. Visit a place where you've always wanted to go, but never got the chance.

31. Just lie on the beach and star gaze.

32. Go bungee jumping.

33. You may try visiting an orphanage and talking to the kids.

34. Have video game competitions at the arcades

35. And finally, whatever you do, just let your hair and your defenses down, and enjoy each other's company.

I'm rather keen on number 13, myself. The whole house doesn't need decorating but the hall, stairs and landing could do with another coat of emulsion.

C J (C J), Monday, 12 February 2007 14:10 (twelve years ago) link

Decorating the walls up the stairs isn't easy though, so perhaps we could combine it with number 32.

C J (C J), Monday, 12 February 2007 14:12 (twelve years ago) link

23: both hands?

StanM (StanM), Monday, 12 February 2007 14:12 (twelve years ago) link

14. Propose your spouse again.

Haha, if I did this, he'd think I was a menk. Possibly even more that if I suggested visiting an orphanage and talking to the kids.

ailsa_xx (ailsa_xx), Monday, 12 February 2007 14:12 (twelve years ago) link

30. Visit a place where you've always wanted to go, but never got the chance.

Just you. Not both of you.

C J (C J), Monday, 12 February 2007 14:13 (twelve years ago) link

I doubt we'll be going out as rest. are packed. last night G. was asking what I wanted. I told him this is not like a birthday and gifts should be just a thoughtful expression of your love. His reply, "oh like carmats?" he knows one of his presents. :( I'm afraid his other present, a handmade stuffed adult swim robot giving the finger, won't be viewed as romantic either. But both are thoughtful and things I think he would enjoy. sigh.

For the record I requested he take me to Dreamgirls.

Ms Misery (MsMisery), Monday, 12 February 2007 14:14 (twelve years ago) link

11. Give her/him a nice sensuous message

Taken from Mills and Boon, perhaps?

g000blar (g00blar), Monday, 12 February 2007 14:16 (twelve years ago) link

33. You may try visiting an orphanage and talking to the kids.

Yes, nothing like some patronising poverty pron to inspire the hron.

stet (stet), Monday, 12 February 2007 14:19 (twelve years ago) link

i am going to be single and working late

maunders (maunders), Monday, 12 February 2007 14:23 (twelve years ago) link

3. Prepare Valentine cake in the shape of HEART.

I think this would be quite the challenge, and a true measure of your devotion.

Nu-Edward III (edward iii), Monday, 12 February 2007 14:31 (twelve years ago) link

18. Confess…

"Lovey, I was nineteen when I first murdered a prostitute..."

Nu-Edward III (edward iii), Monday, 12 February 2007 14:34 (twelve years ago) link

36. Knife a hobo

M Grout (Mark Grout), Monday, 12 February 2007 14:35 (twelve years ago) link

29. Exchange a list containing each other's likes and dislikes.

That's hott.

33. You may try visiting an orphanage and talking to the kids.

Why limit yourself? Why not an asylum, prison, or other state-run facility of her choosing?

Nu-Edward III (edward iii), Monday, 12 February 2007 14:40 (twelve years ago) link

29:

You dislike margarine.

Love, StanM

StanM (StanM), Monday, 12 February 2007 14:41 (twelve years ago) link

CJ, do you think he'd mind if I popped 'round for dinner too? I'd hate to spoil the mood but that DOES sound like a good dinner.

Michael White (Miguelito), Monday, 12 February 2007 15:00 (twelve years ago) link

I am single and cooking dinner with a roommate in a long distance relationship (I'm going to propose a winter vegetable casserole, cheesy biscuits, and spinach as the menu, yay!). Which is worse: being single, or being in a serious relationship separated by the Atlantic?

Maria e (Maria), Monday, 12 February 2007 15:02 (twelve years ago) link

Any list with a Thomas Crown Affair reference is a-ok by me.

I think I am going to eat sushi, on Valentine's Day.

Allyzay heard you got beat up in a club. (Allyzay Eisenschefter), Monday, 12 February 2007 15:03 (twelve years ago) link

I will be having a baby, if it turns up on time.

Meg Busset (Meg Busset), Monday, 12 February 2007 17:43 (twelve years ago) link

A baby is a good Vday present!

Laurel (Laurel), Monday, 12 February 2007 17:45 (twelve years ago) link

GHETTOTECH VALENTINES DAY FOR ME?

69 (pete), Monday, 12 February 2007 17:46 (twelve years ago) link

hooray Meg!

Ms Misery (MsMisery), Monday, 12 February 2007 17:53 (twelve years ago) link

24. Brush or comb her/his teeth

tiit (t**t), Monday, 12 February 2007 19:00 (twelve years ago) link

that list is ridiculous. and poorly written.

Ms Misery (MsMisery), Monday, 12 February 2007 19:02 (twelve years ago) link

For once I am glad I'm single on Valentine's, bitch would probably talk all the way through L O S T.

nklshs (nklshs), Monday, 12 February 2007 19:07 (twelve years ago) link

Haha!

(also, Sam brings teh stating of obviousness)

ailsa_xx (ailsa_xx), Monday, 12 February 2007 19:09 (twelve years ago) link

Me and Mister Monkey will not be able to have lovely Valentine's Day together because we have stupid housemates who never go out anywhere. Sigh.

accentmonkey (accentmonkey), Monday, 12 February 2007 21:36 (twelve years ago) link

I do my best Alisa.

Ms Misery (MsMisery), Monday, 12 February 2007 21:45 (twelve years ago) link

45. Watch the live coverage of the Brits.

M Grout (Mark Grout), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 11:52 (twelve years ago) link

Am now maybe going to see HIS GIRL FRIDAY tomorrow, which sounds like a perfect Valentine's.

g000blar (g00blar), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 11:57 (twelve years ago) link

22. Prank: Give your valentine the keys of your new car and then tell her that it's the only the keys you can afford now.

eh?

M Grout (Mark Grout), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 11:59 (twelve years ago) link

I think I'm going to be swapping clothes with total strangers.

Euai Kapaui (tracerhand), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 12:03 (twelve years ago) link

I think maybe that list was written by someone whose first language was not English. I've only just worked out that 2. Don't go to office and spend it with your spouse. actually suggests that you shouldn't go to work but should stay home with your partner instead. I thought at first it was an order NOT to go to your spouse's office to spend the day with them there.

C J (C J), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 12:06 (twelve years ago) link

I'm cooking. That's it. There might be wine and the Devil Wears Prada (my choice). I will try not to snore all night. Last of the romantics baby!

kv_nol (kv_nol), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 12:08 (twelve years ago) link

I am semi-dreading Valentines Day. Last year a tarte tatin was thrown. We won't be having that this year.

Dr.C (Dr.C), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 12:12 (twelve years ago) link

Really? Wow!

g000blar (g00blar), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 12:13 (twelve years ago) link

Tarte Tatin frisbee!

C J (C J), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 12:20 (twelve years ago) link

Tarte tatin isn't as aerodynamic as a Frisbee, but it's stickier. Very difficult to get off things..... and people.

Dr.C (Dr.C), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 12:25 (twelve years ago) link

Not if you have a dog.

C J (C J), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 12:27 (twelve years ago) link

A dog that's not afraid of heights....or has a VERY long tongue.

C J (C J), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 12:29 (twelve years ago) link

Can I get one before tomorrow evening?

Dr.C (Dr.C), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 12:31 (twelve years ago) link

No, but you could probably get a chihuahua and a long ladder by then.

C J (C J), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 12:33 (twelve years ago) link

a long romantic drive

= handjob in traffic on the South Circular

It's Teatime in Buttercup Land (Maaarghk C), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 12:38 (twelve years ago) link

Plenty of tarte tatin on the South Circular if you go up there at certain times of the weekend...

Didn't take much if any notice of Valentine's Day before now, but Lena's keen on it, so we've sent each other some nice packages with pressies and things, and I'm furiously busy writing up something for CoM so I can post it tomorrow.

Nothing like romance to get me working! ;-)

Marcello Carlin (nostudium), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 13:26 (twelve years ago) link

As I say every year, Valentine's Day is actually my birthday so it's a good excuse to a) take my single friends out and get twatted, and b) never feel emo ever. Hooray.

Matt DC (Matt DC), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 13:27 (twelve years ago) link

That is pretty great, actually.

g000blar (g00blar), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 13:27 (twelve years ago) link

I congratulate Matt's parents on their excellent family planning.

C J (C J), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 13:29 (twelve years ago) link

Yeah, it's near enough my birthday for me not to care. For those of you interested, I shall be announcing my departure from the teen ages live on air this Saturday at 00:00:00.

Comrades, meet Tildo Durd (Scourage), Tuesday, 13 February 2007 13:30 (twelve years ago) link

I am taking my beloved to a performance of happy hardcore tunes played on a church organ.

DV, hem hem, "taking"?

GLOWSTIX ALL ROUND!!!

Ah, thanks for the reminder, kv. Being a bit oldskool, I'm bringing white gloves and Vicks.

As for dances, I'm particularly fond of Flossing Your Nose and Italian Pepper Grinder.

valentine's day takes a 180, from my inbox:

"However, if you decide to come to my show tonight, you can try the delicious pink heart shaped cookies and/or the homemade chocolate cupcakes I made for my fellow improvisers. I will also let you buy me a drink and I will make out with you."

On St. Valentine's Day in 1349, roughly 2,000 Jews were burned to death by Christian mobs in Strausbourg. These mobs, led by nobles who owed large sums to Jewish moneylenders (usury being a sin for Christians), blamed the Jews for poisoning the city's wells and causing the bubonic plague.[9]

Spent Valentine's Day in bed with a cold (hence non-stop posting to ILE), and watched an episode of Gilmore Girls where they had a dog funeral, and an episode of House with tapeworms. Romantic.

accentmonkey (accentmonkey), Wednesday, 14 February 2007 22:50 (twelve years ago) link

That tapeworm thing spoiled the end of my dinner.

Michael White (Miguelito), Wednesday, 14 February 2007 22:54 (twelve years ago) link

It spoiled the end of our packet of Viscount biscuits as well, let me tell you.

this is possibly the worst valentine's day i've ever had, quite a feat.

Allyzay heard you got beat up in a club. (Allyzay Eisenschefter), Thursday, 15 February 2007 02:18 (twelve years ago) link

Today started buried in stress and deadlines, and ended with lots of sushi. I'm going to sleep so well tonight.

shiv sena is so amazingly non-fun (although I sort of felt like burning stuff today too)

Matt Cibula (Formerly, the Haikunym), Thursday, 15 February 2007 03:39 (twelve years ago) link

but it was kind of my fault I think, still

Matt Cibula (Formerly, the Haikunym), Thursday, 15 February 2007 03:39 (twelve years ago) link

Yeah, I've been blaming you all day!

Allyzay heard you got beat up in a club. (Allyzay Eisenschefter), Thursday, 15 February 2007 03:44 (twelve years ago) link

I got emailed the hilarious/cute Link cartoon from VG Cats (you are the last piece - of heart that is... aww hee). And I made us both dinner, which was fancy steak and veggies.

Then we watched our NewsRadio DVD, and Nick tooled around wiht the photo function in the Wii by writing OMG FAG on pictures of peoples Miis.

We so mature.

Trayce (trayce), Thursday, 15 February 2007 04:11 (twelve years ago) link

i actually enjoyed my valentine's day! i watched trashy tv (top design), an iranian film and went for a drug screening for my new job! fantastic!

t0dd swiss (immobilisme), Thursday, 15 February 2007 04:13 (twelve years ago) link

i ran a lot of outside errands for work today. in new york. before it stopped snowing.

i am now drinking whiskey and listening to sisters of mercy which is how all valentine's days should be celebrated

jo ga11ucci electrix (joseph), Thursday, 15 February 2007 04:18 (twelve years ago) link

it's on in Christchurch. At 8.00pm. It is free. You do not need a ticket.

I am sad to have missed this, how was it? Would you let me know if something similar is happening again in future?

rener did he get up and do his thang?

Dinner was a success but I think I snored :(

kv_nol (kv_nol), Thursday, 15 February 2007 11:22 (twelve years ago) link

Sorry that was about my proposed 'romantic' efforts for the evening as mentioned upthread.

Laurel, I'll try and find a link to the supermarket shop. It's about 8 or 9 moves combined.
