A GIFT OF LOVE



Valentine's Day is on its way, and our thoughts turn to those people whom we love, or by whom we want to be loved.

A wonderful year-round gift is a Sploofus upgrade!!

What a way to say "I Love You" to a spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend or family member!

....Of course, there is always that cute prospective partner whose attention you wish to catch?

Sploofus Upgrade.......so easy, so inexpensive!! For the price of a couple of Big Mac meal deals or a pair of movie tickets you can give so much banner-free happy Sploofusing that goes on and on!

I actually refuse to celebrate Valentines Day. I get the kids a bunch of candy & presents & crap like that but I finally convinced Scott that it was the dumbest "holiday" on earth and to please quit coming home with flowers, wine, candy, etc. Last year was the first year I actually got through to him. And so I got home that evening and said "You didn't get me anything for Valentines Day?" Just to watch the panic on his face.

Don't get me wrong - I'm a VERY romantic person. But prepackaged commercial romance just doesn't do it for me. I prefer spontaneity, not stuff on a certain day because they are "supposed" to.

Anybody else?

depends if they are EVER romantic when they aren't "supposed" to. Some of us have to get it (or demand it) while the gettins' good, and can't afford to sneeze at V-Day. But as a former waitress, I would never go to a restaurant on Valentine's. Scott sounds sweet, lucky girl.

Click on Sploofus Home page, down on bottom left somewhere. There will be a menu on the left side and I think the second option down is give the gift of gold. The rest is a walk through.

Back to VD - If its not spontaneous, heart-felt, and sincere, then I don't want it. To me, anything done out of obligation is wasting both our time.

At this point in my life, coming home from a hectic day at work to find dinner ready and the house picked up is enough to move me to tears. A preprinted sappy sentiment on a card with a signature on the bottom and some nasty chocolates that you bite into and then have to spit it out because you got one of the nasty orange one? No comparison.

Big John and I just like any excuse to do something nice to each other. We're bad about nailing the right day, though. Tend to let things slide till the weekend. Might slide all the way through the weekend and out the end of the month. We're planning on going to the Keys at the end of March, something I've been asking for for 20 years, and this year it's to be our mutual "Valentine". He'll prolly still get me a big mushy lacy card, and chocolate had BETTER be involved!

I dearly love me some Big John, but he ain't no Sploofusser.

LOVE STINKS

You love her
But she loves him
And he loves somebody else
You just can't win
And so it goes
Till the day you die
This thing they call love
It's gonna make you cry
I've had the blues
The reds and the pinks
One thing for sure

(Love stinks)
Love stinks yeah yeah

Love stinks yeah yeah

i saw some anti-Valentine's Day e-cards the other day.. some were really hilarious! got to send one to my daughter who begins celebrating St. Paddy's day on Feb 14 every year.

the Gift of Gold is a great idea.

it could be a "just because..." gift. 'just because' i think this site is the best......

I have to say, I love Valentine Day at school. The kids do not buy into the "this is commercialism" truth. Even though I do like to reward them for exceptional behavior or practice at the time it occurs, they'd be hurt if I ignored Valentine D. We're actually doing a candy fundraiser right now, so they're candied out. But a handmade card is always wonderful! I have many really poor students who gave me handmade Christmas cards. Those mean everything to me.

Is it possible to give this to someone anonymously? I did it once and almost felt like I had embarrassed the person......NOT my intention at all.

Everyday should be Christmas, New Years, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Sweetest Day, Birthday's and Anniversaries and any other special days. My local Walgreen's just filled up over two aisles with Valentine's candy that is triple regular candy price. Love and respect each other and these calendar people will go broke.
Why need a special day to be special.

Okeedokee......in the spirit of giving spontaneous love, I just bought my daughter (Sploofus "Juneeka") a Gold membership.

I guess I showed my love for my daughter AND Sploofus at the same time!

I am kinda like a few other members, preferring mutual show of affection at any ol' time rather'n a designated day.
Even though my Sweetheart is in Alaska recovering from two major surgeries a few months back, he managed to find a way to send me a dozen roses thru Interflora a couple of weeks ago! Whatta gift of !

Too cool, Bevvy! Happy for you, sweetie.

Marsha, yes, you can give anonymously, I've done it. You get a box to write a message in at Paypal and a gift message box on Sploofus, as I recall. Use both to tell them you want to make the gift anonymously, and just to be extra sure, I'd put in a support ticket with the same message.

Really thoughtful thing for you to do for you daughter, Bev! I know it made her very happy!

Really sweet of Jeremiah to send you the dozen roses! I know they meant so much to you after all you two have been through.

Absolutely possible to give an anonymous gift. One was given just recently, and while the recipient tried to pump me for information, I didn't give in! Write us a support ticket if you are interested in giving anonymously, and we'll chat.

It's only a couple of weeks to Vlentine's Dy!

Gift upgrades can be for prospective sweethearts as well as ones some members may have already.
Give a surprise upgrade (anonymous or otherwise) and feel the love!

Flowers are nice but ya don't have to go spend a $100 to get some. Maybe it's just because I'm cheap but a $5 bouquet of Peruvian lilies (Alstremeria) from Wal-Mart or Kroger will make me happier than a dozen roses any day. With the roses I will look at them and say...."You spend WHAT on a bunch of flowers that will be dead in less than a week??" Candy.....no thanks unless you run across the Dove truffle eggs in the Easter candy that they are probably already trying to put out in the stores and if you find some them yes please....otherwise...don't bother. Or if you find some of the Starburst Jelly Beans.....a bag of those will work well too. Anyway....The gift of Gold.....an excellent idea. It keeps giving long after the holiday is gone.

On Valentines Day, I like to steer away from the 'Hallmark' aspects of the holiday, maybe write some poetry for my beloved, or cook a special meal. However, in an attempt to capture the true sentiment of the season, I want to share with you all a poem written by Manchester's finest - Mr Michael Harding:

BRING ON THE ROSY-CHEEKED GIRLS
Bring on the rosy-cheeked girls
The smiling ones, the light-footed dancers,
Those that sing with their eyes,
Those with the warm breasts and soft hands,
Those that look deep in the eyes,
Not at the garbage of garb.
Bring on the dark, the fair, the brown as a berry,
Bring them all on with their wet laughing mouths,
The fat, the thin, the short, and the lanky,
But let them be filled of life as a pod with peas,
Let them feel as company comfortable as an old friendly jacket,
young or old,
And most of all . . . let them be merry.
And then take all the others,
All the tight-lipped, crab-faced, mewling, mithering,
Niggardly, sour-faced, crab-mouthed,
Cold-titted, tight-arsed, moaning,
Sullen, frozen-legs-together,
Money-grubbing bitches, and
Take them and heap them together
On some blear and dreary moor
In the howling sleet
And moaning drizzle of November. . . and leave them there,
For it deserves them And they each other.
Then bring on the lads,
The smiling lads,
The open-handed, shoulder-to-the-wheel lads,
Lame dogs helped over stiles lads,
Take a pint, stand a corner lads,
Good laughing lads,
Lads with a quart of life in their hands
And eyes that look straight . . .
Bring on the tall, the short, the long,
The runners, the walkers,
Those that can hammer, those that can turn out a song
Bring on the fat, the thin, the bald and the hairy,
Young or old,
So long as they sup life by the gallon . . .
So long as they're merry.
Then take all the others,
The sly-eyed, twisty-mouthed grabbers and fumblers,
The shifty-faced, two-tongued, leadswinging lizards,
The snotty-nosed, mardy-arsed bullies
And false friends . . .
And stick them up to their necks
In the foulest stink-pot of an old bog
You can find . . . head down . ..
And leave them there.
But for God's sake not too near
That moor with all the old whores . . .
If they meet up and breed
We're all buggered.
