The bitter cold and South Bend nightlife should already be enough of a reason to stay in and get close. Valentine's Day isn't really a holiday, it's a pseudo-holiday made up by some marketing geniuses who wanted to give chocolate companies an "in-season." All the commercialization just makes me nauseous. I almost gave up eating this week so that I wouldn't have to go to Meijer and walk past 4 billion pink hearts just for some freaking eggs.
