If your significant other says “let’s not do gifts” I am here to tell you, it is a trap.



  1. Hope everyone had a good one.

  5. My wife and I never celebrated Valentine’s Day. We figured it was everyone’s holiday, and we wanted a day to ourselves. So we celebrated the day we met, and whenever we could, we would go the restaurant where we had our first date. Much more romantic for us.

  7. Always, always do gifts. Did I mention that it was a good idea to gift?

  8. This is a woman’s celebration aimed at bonding. Men are adverse to such rituals.

  14. Big happenings today in Kimberland, or Kimberlin-land.

    Former Patterico guest blogger, Lee Stranahan, finally had enough of liberal grouch, aka Bill Schmalfeldt’s endless harassment. He filed charges for electronic and ordinary harassment. I wrote about it here.

    And i put out my notice to Schmalfeldt that if he continued to harass me it would be in violation of the same law. He has not complied.

  16. he’s relentlessly anti-freedom and the poor weak-minded citizens of new york are all but defenseless against his lust for control

  17. Bloomberg borders on being evil.

  18. if you are in a relationship with a woman, everything is a trap.

  20. Hey, some of us DO mean it! I detest all holidays, haven’t celebrated my b-day since I was a kid, and didn’t catch that DH made a dinner reservation on V-day until I looked at the calendar!
