Happy Valentine's Day!! ♥♥  
Happy Valentine's Day!! ♥♥

It's a day late, but I figure that better late than never! ^__^ Last night, I was pretty sick, so I went to bed early and slept through the night. Tonight, I'm heading off to a restaurant in Shinjuku called "Soupya" to celebrate with a few (also single) friends, one of my favorite holidays of the year! ^__^

Whether you love Valentine's day or hate it or think that it's a complete farce, I hope that your day was great! ^o^ I personally really love Valentine's day, but then again I love anything that could possibly be romantic in any way. *such a sucker for romance* How about you? How do you feel about Valentine's day? I'm single and I have been on Vday for years, but I still love it just as much as before-- I guess that it doesn't really strike me as having any kind of pressure attached, which I've heard before. It's just a great excuse to have fun. ^^

The tradition in Japan is for women to make chocolates for their loved one ("honmei-choco"), for their friends ("tomo-choco"), and coworkers ("giri-choco") of which the receiving boys (if there are any) are supposed to reciprocate a month later on white day. I don't really care for the japanese celebrations, so I'd rather just go with the American way and give valentines and candy! ^O^ In the case of this year, I made fudge which is chilling in the fridge and I had better go pack up now! ^o^

I love Valentine's Day, too. ♥ It would've been a lot nicer if I could have spent the day with my girlfriend, but even just being at work and listening to what people were planning with friends/family/significant others was fun. It's also great when people give you cards (one of my coworkers gave us all Cabbage Patch Valentines - they're adorable), the excuse to eat candy, etc. I don't really care for the Japanese tradition, either, so I just celebrated it like I would here when I was in Japan. :x

Whit! *hughug* It's really funny, but this is the first time that I realized that you were gay! I thought completely the opposite and was really surprised at what you wrote! ^^ I just haven't been around and good about keeping up on lj, but I went back and read your posts.. I'm so happy for you!!! ^_______^

Yes, an excuse to eat candy is always welcome! ^o^

XD; I don't identify as myself as gay, actually - quite the opposite. She's just... an exception to that (it's the first time I've very honestly been attracted to a woman, too - all my past attractions and crushes have been on guys), and I'm stupidly in love, so her gender just doesn't matter to me in the least. ♥ Thank you, though - that means a lot. :)

Yup! Granted, I can do that every day, but hey, it's fun to get in the festivities of the holiday.
