Shadowknight: thatboyoverthere: I will be spending the day with my Transgender MTF friend by first going to the Hibachi Grill off university ave for all you Minnesota Farkers. And then we will spend the rest of the day playing video games and watching Anime. Alcohol may be involved at some point. Who knows.

Now that's a CSB.  

I remember back in high school, my wife (then girlfriend) went to her senior prom.  While there, her ex-boyfriend (now out of the closet as gay) had a fight with his same sex date, who wanted to leave early and go to a party.  So he ended up riding home with us.

So there I am, after prom with my girlfriend and her now gay ex boyfriend in the back seat, in tears and screaming about his asshole of a boyfriend.  And me, in the driver's seat, not even upset about not getting laid because the situation was so surreal that I was trying not to laugh because I just knew it would be a great story some day.


You probably still could have gotten some that night. A couple of wine coolers and he would have been up for anything.

incendi: Shadowknight: God damn that's just creepy.  I mean, it's creepy enough that there is a market for cuddle pillows with cartoon girls printed on them already.  But add the fact that they are obviously little underage cartoon girls is just plain wrong.

I would've gone more with "But add the fact that he is cuddling with them on public transportation is just plain wrong" but I guess there's a lot of wrong to choose from there.


Here's the real scenario:

As he sat on the train, Jiro became aware that he was being watched. It was a little unnerving. In Tokyo, people tend to mind their own business, so this undue attention was not only unpleasant to Jiro, it was kind of rude. Still, being a proper Japanese delivery boy, he kept his mouth shut and-- subconsciously-- clutched the two body pillows he was delivering to the shop in Akihabara closer to himself.

Why did  he get picked to make this delivery, anyway? There was no way he could carry two "love pillows" around and  not have other people assume they were his, or that he was some lonely, sad otaku who couldn't get a girlfriend. He  had a girlfriend! Sure, he couldn't talk about her because it was a secret, but he knew from the moment he met Akiko backstage at the SDN48 concert that it was true love. Unfortunately, her involvement in the pop group meant dating was forbidden, so every time he saw her it required some sneaking around. If she were caught with a man, she would be shamed, dishonored, and probably kicked out of the group. He had no choice but to go along with the secret nature of their relationship for her protection. She loved him, but she also loved her career. He understood and went along with it in order to see her.

But oh! When they were together it was magical! Akiko was so beautiful, and he greatly enjoyed seeing her smile. It was the most beautiful sight on this Earth, to him. How utterly depressing that he couldn't see her again for another two months! SDN48 was touring and he could hardly follow them around-- Not just because it would be dangerous for Akiko, but because he simply couldn't afford to take time away from work to tour around Asia.

So here he sat on the train, feeling a bit sad that his true love was so far away, carrying these ridiculous pillows, with some  gaijin not far away, obviously snapping pictures with his cell phone. Jiro sighed. This was going to be a long train ride.

Sometimes, this job was not worth 200,000 yen per month.

IAMBOB: My roommate is having the married woman he's been seeing over for Valentines day dinner.  Technically she's separated, but her ex is a psycho, and I plan on not being home when she's there in case he decides to pay a visit.

So instead I'm going to go see an action flick, and do a small pub crawl afterwards to see if I can pick up any tearfully single women who don't mind making a drunken mistake.


It's Valentine's, not Mother's Day, son.

I plan to spend the day making phone calls to everyone I know whose partner is cheating on them and informing them of said infidelity, making sure that future Valentine's Days will always be tainted by the memory. Then I'll seduce a married man. Maybe two. Happy Valentine's Day!

I'm take PornHub to dinner and a movie.  She seems like a fan of the Shoney's Dinner Buffet and Adam Sandler, so it's a match made in eHarmony.  I've got a feeling that my sticky dick is going to be covered in popcorn by the end of the night.  Planetary high-fives!!

I clicked the link hoping a site called "Asia Diva" would provide me with something to think about tomorrow after dinner with my wife, and possibly during.

I'm too ugly and don't clean up well enough for gay men.  But then, sometimes I kind of wish I were gay, just because I would farking clean up in a leather bear bar.

Hate to break it to you, but if your media filter is still so weak that you even remembered it was valentine's day tomorrow before seeing the headline, and you're single, then you're not an "adult" in anything but the strict legal sense.

Adults don't really care that much about other people's affairs, rarely even noticing them unless invited and certainly don't horn in on other people's events just because they feel they're lacking sufficient attention for a day.  That's thirteen-year-old-girl stuff, there.

//Will probably have forgotten about it again by the time another hour has rolled by.
//Actually usually forget it when I'm not single, too, but I've never forgotten a scheduled date and tend to buy little trinkets and stuff for girlfriends randomly anyhow, just by virtue of being raised in the south, so I rarely get in much trouble for it.

Bungles: It's the duty of single people to go to restaurants being loud and obnoxious, in order to ruin as many peoples' dates as possible.

Possibly have a little shiat under the table.


You could just stand up, and make a short but accurate speech....

"Excuse me, ladies, you do realize that every man here tonight hates this stupid Valentine's dog and pony show, and are only spending an outrageous amount of money to shut you up and get your legs spread. If the woman at the table next to you agreed right now to fark the man you are here with, he'd be out the door with her so fast you'd think his head was on fire and his ass was catching. Have a lovely evening."

I bet she also owns cats.  A LOT of cats...

quatchi: Amy Chandran said celebrating Valentine's Day with friends as a single person was just as fun as commemorating the occasion as a couple.

Amy should probably learn about orgasms. She'd change her tune pretty quick.

/Unless, of course, they're planning a menage-a-trois thing in which case, never mind.


Since when do orgasms require another person?

Sure, it's better when there's someone else, but it's not exactly a requirement.
