Essence of Party-Plotting: Galentine’s Day

Me, a few years ago with a box of chocolate almost as big as I am.

Me, a few years ago with a box of chocolate almost as big as I am. Who needs THAT MUCH chocolate? OK, don’t answer that, we could probably all eat it.

Sheesh! I’ve been radio silent. I spent most of January sicker than a dog (actually) and trying to complete my office renovation (pics, etc. SOON, like, this week soon. Seriously.), then school started and I was a total mess.

In actuality, I’m still, admittedly, a total mess but that’s fine. I’m also a single mess, which makes this a prime opportunity for GALENTINE’S DAY. No, that’s not a typo, let’s love our BFFs February 14th ladies.

Valentine’s Day, Schmalentine’s Day. My motto is that if you love someone, you don’t need one stupid day of the year to “treasure” and “celebrate” that…you should love them every day and do something special for that person on no occasion regularly. I used to really hate Valentine’s Day, to the point where I called it “Valendoom’s Day” (thanks Cora, from The Real World: Back to New York for that one). Now, I just think it’s one of those days where people unnecessarily spend too much money on jacked up roses, chocolates, Hallmark cards and dinner.

So guess what? I love my girlfriends and even though I have to work on Feb. 14, you may not, so perhaps a Galentine’s Day gathering is in your future. Thanks be to Leslie Knope!

Get out those green face masks and your sleeping bags, order a party-sized pizza and get one of those triple chocolate cakes from Costco: This is going to be the best Galentine’s Day ever:
