I need to post more often...

Life's all sunshine, rainbows and lollipops again!

Many things come to mind. But notably the fact that tomorrow is valentine's day, and today is Friday the 13th. No, I'm not dragging some unlucky allowing a lucky woman to accompany me this saturday. But I do have to go stand around at a valentine's day event.

According to statistics, men spend around twice as much as women on valentine's day. This doesn't really seem too just. But then again, what CAN you buy a man? Flowers? Jewellery? Even chocolates would be wrong for not sharing your own. So it looks like men are just throwing money at the problem.

And that little nugget is the Stinger missile to the Cessna 172 of women's ranting on men not 'giving enough'.

And I choose to ignore the fact that you aren't talking about material things with regard to giving.


Also, Black cats. I haven't seen any yet, but I did take care to carry a vial of water with me everywhere.

You know what bro, things here in Japan are a bit different. On the Valentine's Day, chicks give presents to guys!
Yeah, believe me.

Of course there is payback time, that's 14th of March where guys have to shower girls with presents, but that's something to worry about later isn't it? Of course there is the option that you could hide somewhere on the 14th of March!
:P

Why not? It's pretty good a system I'd say! :D

Why save now only to pay double later?

Dude, Of course men spend more on Valentine’s Day.
a) on expensive lingerie.
b) expensive romantic dinner
Both in order to get laid. Chicks are just expensive on the 14th of Feb.
Damn.
