Valentine's Day

After work last night I went to the airport and picked up Tony. He wanted to go to Muckleshoot Casino to eat and play a little. I didn't get to bed until 7am this morning and got up at 10 and now I have to go to work and I'm tired and a little cranky. It was fun and the food was good and I can always enjoy spending money that isn't my own, but it was crazy crowded with lots of folks who were dressed to the nines for Valentine's Day. (translation=looked pretty trampy)
It's not that I think dressing up is wrong, but at least be aware of your body type and size. Skin tight, in my humble opinion, really doesn't look good on anyone, but it especially doesn't look good if you weigh over 150 pounds. I am always amazed at what appears to be an extreme mirror shortage. I can't imagine have a big booty and huge thighs and putting on a skin tight skirt that barely covers my butt and looking in the mirror and saying, "WOW...I look really hot!"
If I am offending anyone in saying that...hmmmm
I don't care! It's ridiculous what some people wear. Just because someone designs a fashion doesn't mean it is fit to be worn. And who decides to make some of these items in a size 5x?

The other thing that really got my attention was the fact that going out for Valentine's Day just to meet that "obligatory" expectation of the mass marketers in the world is really stupid, especially if you don't really get along and are trying to what? Better the relationship? Ha. Get real. I saw more people fighting last night than getting along. Of course, the majority of them had been drinking, but the point is...hmmmm
I guess I really don't have a point. It just made me really glad that I don't have anyone to have to provide me obligatory romance on a specific day just to please the marketing gods. I would rather have someone who loves me every day in little ways than all the hoopla I saw going on last night in the name of Valentine's Day.

Of course, I have neither, but that's ok with me.

It's just another day in the year. The only thing I really like about it is the little chalky valentine hearts. I will go buy some tomorrow when they are half price!

I so totally agree with your fashion ideas! It made me laugh just reading your description though.
I hope you had a good day!

I had a good day. It was a little crazy at the casino, but other than that it wasn't too bad. I hope yours was good, too.
