It's the weekend. Are you feeling the love?
You better be. The annual relationship apocalypse that is Valentine's Day is just six short days away. Better live it up now, because no matter whether you're a sad single or a constant source of disappointment for your significant other, it's all downhill from here.
On the upside, maybe your boss will buy you something pretty. Just don't tell his wife.
Until then, you can fill your weekend with celebrity stalking, noise-thrashing, and trippin' on opera. Hey, it sure beats thorny roses and stupid stuffed bears.
