The Ghost of Valentine's Future

I am not in a situation where I need to plan something for Valentine's Day, but the news is talking about people spending an average of $122 or something per person.

That's all well and good, but I feel the need to issue a statement about my own personal preferences about Valentine's Day presents: DON'T GIVE ME STUFFED ANIMALS.

I hate them.  I hate them because they usually aren't cute.  They aren't useful.  And I tend to associate them with the sort of vapid, childish views of romance that make me want to puke.

There is one exception to the stuffed critter rule: Giant Microbes.  But you have to think VERY carefully before you give someone (me) with whom you're romantically involved a stuffed cootie.
