I'm terribly depressed today. I'm trapped by finances and codependency in a relationship I really want to escape from. If that were not bad enough, there is someone else whom I actually do have very strong feelings for, but for the reason above I am not available to him. Although, it's probably all for the best -- for his and my own mental health and for the health of our friendship that we are unable to be a couple at this time. I'm just not the kind of person cut out to be a "partner."

I think the only person who ever celebrated this holiday in the proper spirit was Al Capone.

googled St Valentines & found this:

"Saint Valentine was a martyr... one who endured great suffering and, for many among us,
that's what Valentine's Day is all about.

According to History.com, Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome.

When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men... his crop of potential soldiers. Valentine, realising the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine's actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death."

maybe it is about defiance & love's refusal to be "legislated" too?

(aint all roses & marshmallow hearts in my books either bro)

I like that the list is mostly negative and then in the middle it says the importance of being Earnest opens its not a bad show. \:\)

Hey, I just found a big list and edited out the good stuff. (Hope I don't do that with my life!) I kept in Wilde because of VLI's sig file...the only negative there was that Wilde was days away from receiving the card that led to his arrest...

"I'm sure you have many calls to make of a similar nature."

I suddenly really want a cucumber sandwich.
