    Personally, being a bit of a "cool thing" freak..I'd go on gadgetshop.com or firebox.com etc and look for something really different. I got this cool plasma lamp at christmas (Ya know, the ones that you touch and the electric stuff inside goes to the glass where you touch it)..but instead the old "ball style" one it was a curvy one with blue plasma, well smart, only about 15 quid (in the sale) or something like that..it's cheap but so different it's ultimately cool. :thumb:

    Personally, I'm fucked off and I'm going off thesite if I see one more v.day post hehe..only joking..I'm just pissed off, finished with the missus like 2 weeks ago (and a few days) and every fucking year I'm single on valentines day.

    I'm the new scrooge of valentines day, bah humbug.. :(

    Luckily I got single friends to spend it with, and it's not the fact I don't appreciate the day itself, I don't think it's stupid, I think it's nice...but I've never got anyone to spoil or share it with..not properly if ya know what I mean. :impissed:

    Oh well I'll just go out and get wrecked :razz: like every other friday with me boy and girl friends and at least I know I'll score with someone...See, optimist! :D

    Laters.

    Nah I'm only joking, I understand why people want to talk about it so much, I just wish this year I was one of the ones asking for help, lol.

    Oh well, I'll just play the field and if I don't win I can always "score an 'own' goal"..;)

    You should get that horror film called "Valentine" (I think), pretty much sums up my views on the day.

    I made heart shaped gingerbread biscuit things and put them in a heart shaped box (incidently the only Nirvana song I ever liked!) with some tissue paper.

    He thinks they're yummy (long story as to why he got them today!) and I sent him a card in the post (anonymous to add intrigue) and will make him a lovely hot chicken salad tomorrow night for dinner. Yum.

    Him? Well, he hasn't got me anything, but I know he will make me a card.

    Wouldn't know I've never got any! :rolleyes:

    I haven't even had chance to get my boyf anything, he was down last weekend and I've been at work since he left. I don't have time to go anywhere in my lunch break and I finish work at 5:30 so can't go anywhere after work! I'm not even seeing him tomorrow cos since I don't get home from work til 6pm it'd be gone 9 by the time I get up there, so am gonna end up driving 130odd miles on Saturday just to see him for the day since I'll have to drive all the way back Sunday lunch time! I tell ya, Valentines Day is too much bloody hassle!! And I still dunno what to get - looks like it's going to have to be something that you can either get from Tescos or the motorway services!! :confused:

    /Rant over:p

    At a service station, pre-pack beef sarnies. :yum:
    Usually available with horseradish or mustard.

    Big sellers, so they keep a load in stock...

    Umm...I'd not have a clue what to get anyone on valentines day.
    Something fluffy? They'll have all that crap too :)

    haha you sure know how to impress the ladies ;)

    seriously though, i don't go in for this whole present swapping thing - i think it should just be a day to spend together (preferably away from single people if ya catch my drift)

    Best selling service-station sarnie.

    Why do you think the motorway has such a lack of debris on it?
    It's not *naturally* that clean.

    :p
