v is for veto

valentine's day is commercialized and kitschy. period.

it is a holiday that shames people into wearing something red &/or pink and then buying something red &/or pink for their significant other. the shame then trickles down to those who don't happen to have a significant other on 1 of 365 days.

do we really need the candy-card-and-diamond people to remind us who we love and why?
(the answer is no.)

here's your challenge. don't spend a dime on these cheesy things. tell him you love him and be done with it.

instead, spend a dime or two on these quirky cards on any day of the year you choose.






more red cap cards can be found here, or if you can handle vulgarity you can find the the e-cards here.

Hey Emily! How are you? I don't think I have seen or talked with you since we all went to dinner that one night! Well you look great! And I agree I don't LOVE valentines so me and chris hardly do anything! Well I hope all is well! Can't wait to hear from you.

It's so weird to me that people get so bent out of shape over a holiday. If you don't want to buy diamonds, don't. If you don't want to wear red or pink, don't. See? It's easy.
