364 Days Till Valentine's Day!

So start making calls now. Start working out on a regular basis, rediscover the art of flossing and remember how to eat w/ your mouth closed. Then again, I already do the aforementioned and still found myself treating Feb. 14 like any other Tuesday. What does it mean when Valentine's Day has lost all meaning? Is it sad that such a romantic holiday has been written off by what was once a hopeless romantic? Or is it refreshing that a holiday invented by Hallmark doesn't affect the guy who used to plan weeks in advance for Feb. 14?

My philosophy's always been you should be romantic because you want to, not because Walmart replaces its Christmas candy and cards w/ red and white gifts. Then again, I'm sure if I had a g/f I'd go all out for the phony-baloney holiday. I wonder what T-Rock and Greggster did to celebrate their first Valentine’s Day engaged. It’s strange to look ahead to Valentine’s Day 2007. Who of my friends will be engaged? Who of my friends currently in relationships will be single? Will Love Monkey still be on the air?

Let’s take a look at all the girls I’ve found myself out w/ (or wanting to take out) since last Valentine’s Day, and what I liked about them. I’ll also list why things didn’t work out. Names will not be used, for their own protection (and mine).
