I made it clear to the missus when we first started dating that there would be no Valentine's Day and since then she's had no complaints 8)
In fact, I'm still getting mileage from the one time I bought her a V-day present, about 10 years ago It was a painting by an artist we know. Still hanging in the living room, and she still tells people the story
Expensive holiday though... cost me an iPhone, bouquet and (soon) dinner out for the missus. Had to contribute 100 pounds for the office pool to buy flowers and gifts for all the ladies on Friday
Are there many Tatiana's in your office, Morbs?
Many years ago when working for a software house in the uk, I used to deal with a few customers in Russia, all the females seemed to be called Tatiana. One in particular would start laughing mid sentence and take two minutes to regain herself. We came to the conclusion she was on the vodka at work!
