Title: V-day '08 <3
Post by: Lisu on February 11, 2008, 10:05:40 PM
early? Yes, I just love this holiday that much
-no I don't

I'm posting this early for prep time for those who do anything, and a bit of a game for those who are 2-d enough to know were it is at. That being said, it is a general thread (that, and I don't want to post in forum games)

Game:
The point- to find your valentine
How- come Valentine's day, by looking around you post an image of a character you particularly like, giving the chocolate, in turn results in you receiving the chocolate on v-day (nolonely)
rule-no early posting and has to be this year. Meaning it is a most recent submission by an artist, not just a recent image you saw that is actually a couple years old, situationally, that would be an old valentines.

That aside, v-day, how you prepare, how you spend, what you think......go for it.

This looks good. I'll probably make a lonely otaku pic sooner or later as well.

Might be up for it if I have the time to look.

As for other aspects of v-day, I normally try to prepare/ start preparing about a week before. Sometimes more if I'm making something not edible... like plushies... -.-; Depends on the year and my mood. Sometimes I'm too lazy to do a lot of work. XP Its not a terribly special day to me.

Valentines day?  Yeah.  This will be my 32nd Valentines day in a row that I am SINGLE.  That's every single Valentines day in my life with no one to call my own.  It's a new pathetic record.   

Does it suck?  Heck yeah!  Am I going to make a huge deal about it?  I try not to.  Will I curl up with a candy bar and some stupid movie on Thursday to hide from the world of love outside my window?  You bet. 

Aside from that I give the people in my office a small gift and try to keep the kids at school from going into sugar shock too early in the day.  There's nothing like the combination of too much sugar, cards and hurt feelings to make Valentines day something SPECIAL in an elementary school.  lol.

I'll probably celebrate my bachelor status by watching anime and/or playing videogames.

Wait, I would be doing that anyway.

Ah well.

I might go into san francisco today and celebrate anti-valentines day, the day where people who are alone try to pretend they aren't lonely by acting happy on valentines day.

Of course I have no one to go with.........I guess if I did it wouldn't be anti-valentines day.

I celebrate by recieving candy at school from friends that were passing them around in little bags. ^^
There is this one girl I got my eye on, so this day might the beggining of love instead of a celebration of a relationship thats already established.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone.

I'll be at work, so I'll be spared the mushiness from everyone going out and celebrating. This is one of those days that I'm actually glad to be at work. LOL

ugh, chocolate comma...
v-day was alright this time around. Got and unsatisfying illustration done  (http://lisu-c.deviantart.com/art/Valentines-trouble-77366874), and other that that spend the day regularly with a whole lot of sweet in between.
To be a notable mention of my favorite image of the year, text reading something like "no chocolate for you":

I actually got chocolates from a lot of the girls that I like. Not my all time tops mind you, but from the range of 'like a little' to 'pretty high up'. To me though, the special one was one that made me realize I liked her a little higher than lately considered.  Favorite of her respective game, this year I'll accept some cursed chocolate with happiness.

I'm gonna have to agree.  There were quite a few Nanoha images.  Although 1. few were not overtly sexual and 2. most were not Nanoha herself.  There were a couple of good Vitas though.

On the Touhou tangent, there was a good Youmu or two, but Nanoha had to take precedence over Touhou.  Principles.

When I came home last night, I was really quite tired so I ended up conking out on my futon as soon as I got back. In true euphoric fashion I was "woken up" in a dream sequence that evening and received chocolate from a handful of my favorite characters. But in the end:
