Just another day! If you need a day to feel forced to tell someone you love them, it's both a terrible holiday and a questionable relationship. You don't stop loving someone the next day. You don't stop buying them gifts on the 15th onwards.

Hell, if anything, it should be recognised with a day off so you can spend the day with the person you love!

One of these days I'm going to write a book about our society's weird obsession with romantic love. It's treated as an endgame, a goal to be achieved, a laurel to be rested on.

Why don't we have Best Friend's Day? Or, for that matter, why do we need a particular day to celebrate those we love?

We have a Friend's Day in Argentina: July 20th. It's way more popular than Valentine's.

We do: birthdays. It's like saying "thank you for being here, I love you" What could be sweeter than that?

Anywho, I don't feel forced to do anything, but it's nice to use Valentine's day to think outside the box and plan an exciting outing with your significant other. I like celebrating stuff and I like giving homemade chocolates away :) (and I do a lot, really, just a few days ago I made muffins with chocolate chips)

To narrow down the question, ehem: chocolate and orange brioche or chocolates?

I personally like to think about my friends as equals, hence I don't have a best friend, I just have friends.

I actually gauge my friends on levels of how annoying they are.

I have one friend I can definitively say is my best friend. She is closer to me than my parents.

Sometimes I get a wee bit concerned about how angry you are all the time, Darkobra.

Hmm...I actually have a bottle of Ballantine's Finest around here somewhere. I may have to crack it open on Friday.

My husband is going out of town on Valentine's Day to see his best friend. I'm planning to use the time he's away to play Magic with my best friend. So, uh... we're good at Valentine's Day, yeah?

Personally, I plan on sleeping in on Valentine's Day, then heading out to the store the day after for 50% candy. Same thing I did on Halloween.

Isn't candy supposed to be pricier on Valentine's Day?

It usually is, but then the day after, like most candy-infused holidays, the prices drops dramatically. Trust me, it's always a good idea to grab cherry cordials on February 15th.

Hypothetically, say a white South African family emigrates to the USA and gets citizenship. Are they then African-American?

Seems legit. I've never used such a mad term anyway, and not just because I live in the UK. it's always seemed odd that anyone would exclude Caribbean, South Indian, Indonesian, etc etc etc people.

I think most Americans got into the bad habit of saying "African American" because of the history of discrimination associated with the word black and such. But yeah ask any black dude in Brazil, they'll laugh their ass off at the notion.

I remember doing my census. I was in tears of laughter as I saw the term "Black British." It was starting to sound like a Ram Jam song.
