Welcome to Glenn's Blog!

Here I will periodically post random thoughts and stories about what's going on in my life and the world around me. As if anyone cared. But seriously, you've found your way here, so hopefully you will enjoy at least some of what I have to say, even if you aren't entirely interested in it. At the least, it should be a good way to waste time.

Valentine’s Eve

Here it is, the night before Valentine's Day. Tomorrow there'll be people going giddy over the gifts and plans bestowed upon them by their significant others. And there will be those who proudly proclaim that it isn't really a holiday anyway. And there will be those who remind us that we shouldn't just show our affections one day out if the year. Not that people will listen.

This is the first time in, I don't know, 20 some years that I'm single. Without any romantic interest, as it were. It's a little strange, a little surreal I suppose. I'm not entirely sure what to do about it. Or if I should do anything. I'm not really used to not being "with" someone. But, I think, that's okay.

Maybe we all make too much out of relationships anyway. I mean, when you think about it, they're ultimately a pretty negative thing. Relationships can only end in one of two ways - a breakup or death. There's no other possible outcome. And neither is a positive thing to look forward to. I guess we just have to enjoy the ride as best we can.

So this Valentine's Day, I'm going to spend it laying in bed with my kitties, eating ice cream perhaps, and maybe watching a sappy romantic drama where the boy DOESN'T get the girl in the end. Like, I don't know. Titanic. Or something. It's a plan, of sorts. At least it sounds like an enjoyable evening to me.

Well, if we're not enjoying the ride, what's the point?
