childish and ... OK, I want 'em

I try to forget that holidays of obligation, like this one, exist.

I actively rebel against the gift-giving expectations and false specialness of such dates (though I do generally try to make those who are special to me aware of that feeling).

But at the same time...

The few years that I've received special gifts (flowers, dinner dates, etc.) have done a remarkable job of making me feel special -- with the unfortunate side-effect of making me feel extra *not* special in years since which have lacked those things, in years where I've not had ongoing life-building-style relationships.

So I'm torn about this cutesy site's offering.

But I really do want 'em this year.

So if you feel so inclined, --
