    Australia is a day a head of most of you, however for all of those single people, have a great day.

    (Yes this is the Anti-Valentines Day thread)

    Ok, what does it say about me that I first read that as "Happy Shingles Awareness Day." :lol:

    Seriously though, I don't know that "singles awareness" is a thing. Is there really a lack of awareness of singleness?

    "Singles Rights Day" or "Singles Pride Day," now there would be a good holiday! Mind you, every day is Singles Pride day for me. :cheer:

    Regardless, though, Happy Singles Awareness Day to all my fellow singletons.

    The original title of "If you're alone on Valentine's Day it's because you're a miserable person who will never find love so just go sit on your couch and try not to think that your cats are just staring at you waiting for you to die so they can eat your corpse" was considered too wordy and wouldn't fit on the coffee mugs.

    I'm sure your cats love you for you and not just as a potential substitute for Fancy Feast.

    :encore:

    I don't think it's a "waiting for the opportunity" situation, it's just survival. After all, they don't have opposable thumbs so they can't open the cans themselves.

    BTW, I went to a play last night that had some heavy Puritan themes to it ... and then coincidentally a friend posted this on Facebook today:

    Puritan Valentine's Day Cards

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    And neither are useful or necessary at all.

    :lol:

    My favourite is:

    You almost make my heart dance.
    And dancing is forbidden.

    I think I'll whine next month that St. Patrick's Day is a plot to make everyone who's not Irish Catholic to feel left out.
