    Default Valentine's Day

    It's the day of love!

    The day you go out tonight, If you don't have a mate(female or male occupancy) you go out and find you one.

    Go listen to some old love songs!
    Barry White
    Luther!!!!
    Teddy Pete
    Sinatra

    This is the day, were if your alone tonight, and you think just because your alone, nobody care about you, loves you, or pretty much don't want to talk to you.

    This is the day, were you go out, anywhere where you can enjoy yourself, a bar, club, gentlemens club, movies, were ever!!! Hell you could even go out for a midnight jog around the park and find somebody!!!

    You go out, and do something with yourself. Be happy, I know tonight I will!!!!
    Maybe yall will be to!!!

    As it happened with Thanksgiving, you assume the rest of the world celebrates the same things as the USA. Some countries may, but not all of them. Although Valentine's Day is slowly introducing itself here, I can't remember anyone celebrating it in Spain five or ten years ago. Obviously, those who make business out of it are happy we start celebrating it here as well, but I tell you, in Catalonia, lovers' day is the 23th of April, Saint George day. Women give a book and men give a red rose. Lately women want to be given a book as well (some people find it sexist that they receive flowers instead of a book). However even if they want to get a book, they still want the rose.

    Oh, when April's fool arrives, remember that in Spain(I'm not sure for the rest of the continent) it's celebrated the 28th of December.

    You celebrate April fool in December!?

    Are you sure someone hasn't been trying to fool you there?

    I got Fliss a nice box of chocolates and two dvd's - one of which was Red Dwarf II, the other failed to arrive on time. Doh!

    She got me a wine tasting day... which is the weirdest present I've ever received although I'm looking forward to picking a date in the summer to go and visit the vinyard to do the tasting.

    xEik.

    You know whether or not the rest of the world celebrates the same Holiday's here in the USA. The point is this is like some specific time of day were people just stop hating each other, and just wind up becoming friends, mates, compaining, (this begining to look the other side ) End message.

    Infox: I would see myself celebrating Fools day in December. I would see myself celebrating that day everyday.

    If you don't believe me you can check 'inocente' in the Español-Inglés box here http://www.diccionarios.com

    Sorry for not giving a direct link to the definition since it doesn't work in that site.

    Don't forget that Valentine's Day is also a celebration of friendship!

    To all those who have A Special Person: kudos! I hope you have fun, even if you don't participate in this whole Valentine madness. To all those without That Special Person: good luck. Being single is nothing to be ashamed of!

    Peace and love,
    V.

    ps: I wonder. I always sign off with "peace". Some of you must be thinking I'm some pot-blowing hippie. Actually I'm not. Just wanted to make that clear .

    Well I don't think there would be a problem. It is a general discussion area. Fire away. We are video game enthusiasts aren't we not?

    Default mister so effin' serious strikes agAIn! ;)

    .
    [thank god ive got sugar]

    if you want to discuss Zelda, go ahead and start a new topic in general discussion. theoretically, we can talk about anything in the general forum, though in fact it is better to discuss non-videogame or non-web development issues on forums that specialise in other subjects. politics and religion spring to mind as topics that ought to be somewhere other than wipeoutzone; discussions of them can get angry and vicious very easily. forums generally exist so that people can share a single special interest. more generalised discussions about many topics are better served by chatrooms. even the chats that are supposedly based on single subjects just naturally evolve into discussions about everything. i used to be in a Radiohead chat where we almost never talked about Radiohead. anyway, In My Opinion, forums just work better when they're more focussed on one central subject plus other very closely related subjects. in wipeoutzone's case, of course, we talk about one particular videogame series, but discussions also are about closely related things, mainly other videogames and videogame music both on consoles and computers and the internet. this also links to graphics design and web design. going beyond those subjects seems to diffuse the community spirit that we have on this particular forum because it means going beyond our shared interests.

    you can see how this very 'thread' we're writing in now has fallen apart into other directions; this is because it was from the very beginning unrelated to wipeout or videogames or anything closely related to them. so there was no cohesiveness to the subsequent posts, no focus, no definite path along which discussion would develop. so as more posts are added, it turns more and more into the kind of mishmash that you find on those other forums that don't work as well as wipeoutzone. you know, the forums you tend to abandon to come here instead. ; ^ D

    had not the system administrator already posted a reply to this thread before i even saw it, i would have been strongly tempted to just delete it because i knew it would go to pieces quickly. having said all that, though, i now say to bear in mind that today i am tired, hungry, perhaps bitchy as a result of that, and that i always have a bit of a perfectionist streak. not only that, but my Mom died on Valentine's day several years ago. every Valentine's Day reminds me of when i watched her die, so i may be prejudiced against the 'subject' of this topic. i'm just telling you these things so that you can better judge the opinions ive stated in this post. nonetheless, i ask you to think about what i said in that first paragraph.
