    mmmm Ben Affleck in tight red leather. What self-respecting girl wouldn't like that?

    Unfortunately, I can't go with you guys. I'll be in St. Louis that week. *sighs*

    See, something for everyone, apparently! Guys are happy, girls are happy. Personally, I'd be more in it for Colin Farrell than Ben Affleck. Sure, he's a chain-smoking, obscene guy, but at least he has more sense than to be engaged to Jennifer Lopez. Yeesh!
    Anyway, I'm in, at least tentatively.

    I agree with Gepper- this is definately a Colin Farrell moment! :)

    PLEASE NOTE: The movie is actually going to be at the Cinema at the Glendale Mall NOT Regal-Shiloh Crossing.

    Mmm yanno, I personally like Colin better too, but he's all bald and without the lovely Irish accent we rarely hear. And anyways, I still have a place for Ben in my movie star favs for Chasing Amy. The J.Lo this is a distraction though, I have to admit.

    So I guess this has evolved from the Jedi Chix girls' nite out into "all-skate." I can't make it Friday evening (must work) but Wendy (Dark Snack) should be there.

    btw, a friend on another list announced he had seen a sneak preview and declared Daredevil to be "better than Spider-Man." Said Affleck works as both Matt and DD (figured he'd be true to it, since he's a comic geek like his friend Kevin Smith).

    I *hope* it's better than Spiderman. :D

    I would like to go, but it depends greatly on the weather and when I get out of work (if I'm even able to get there). There's no way I can say ahead of time.

    "Houston--we have a problem"

    There was some confusion about this event. . .

    It was a single girls night out Troopie thing over at Bloodfin that I was arranging as a sort of (positive) protest over the culture that does not assign value to the single woman.
    As so we single gals were going to celebrate our singleness (not man bash or anything--don't worry)

    Because of a communication gap, it got posted over here, and was issued as an open invitation.

    It actually is a rather small event over by my place. The plan is to see the movie at Glendale.

    Of course, I don't want to seem like a jerk and say attached people can't come. So what do you say, I'll post a thing about what time the movie is and anyone is welcome?

    ZUCK, I got to see it at a free sneak preview. I am lucky enought to get to go to a couple a week.

    And it is better than Spiderman. I am however a big DD fan. But to me, and the people I saw it with, it is an all around great movie.

    I think I'll venture out and see this one solo. I've always felt Valentine's Day was overrated anyway. Ok I'm just bitter that I'm always single on Valentine's Day.

    :D

    Everyone have a fantastic Valentine's Day and enjoy the movie. And to all you happy couples out there...


















    You SUCK!!!

    Cute icon, Noval. Really. Homer and Marge: the model couple. :)

    Anyway, for the record, I refuse to participate in anything promoting singleness or bashing couples because I personally find it a waste of energy in both directions. I am who I am, one way or the other, right? However, I do want to go to the movie wherever it ends up being. I think Glendale is a good choice, at least for me...selfishly speaking.

    Guys, girls, whatever. Just name the time and place. I'll show up.

    Thanks to the efforts of Nyghtfyre and Naboo Queen with regards to these plans! :)

    Thanks Gepper for the kudos but they all should go to NQ since I am the one who caused the mishap....but anyways- Do we have a time yet? What about the possible nasty weather situation- any thoughts?

    I thank everyone for efforts, even if they go awry. It's the effort that counts...well, except to Yoda. He's all about "Do or do not," yadda, yadda, yadda.

    Time and place: that's what we need.

    And, in a completely unrelated note that matters only to me at the moment, I almost burst some blood vessels this morning out of excitement.
    You see, I just found out officially that the Rock will be at Conseco Fieldhouse next week! AAAAHHH! EEEEEEE! WOOHOO! I knew my guy wouldn't let me down. ;)

    Okay, that's all I've got for now. I need to calm down! Anyway, time and place, etc. Merci beaucoup! :)

    First off, Valentines Day is not a society's attempt to crush the single masses. It is a day to celebrate the idea of love between a man and a woman. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Valentine's Day in the U.S. is a Hallmark Holiday. It has marginally to do with the original meaning or spirit of the holiday referring to St. Valentine. The concept of flowers, jewelry and all that other BS is purely Madison Avenue Marketing.

    Don't get me wrong. I am a stalwart romantic, I believe in flowers, jewelry, the small of a woman's back, and all that, I just hate the pressure of commercialism. If I love someone, I am not going to wait until February 14th to tell them.

    All that having been said, if men are allowed, I would like to attend the group screening of Daredevil at Glendale on Friday.

    And now, the rest of the story...

    The origins of Valentine's Day

    Feb. 12 (UPI) -- While some men are convinced Valentine's Day was created by card and flower companies, some believe it dates back to the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia, a time of lovemaking and licentiousness, according to Anthony Aveni, author of "The Book of the Year -- A Brief History of Our Seasonal Holidays."

    "Lupercalia was when young Roman males would sacrifice goats, put on the goatskins as a loincloth and then run around striking young women with thongs from the same goatskins," Aveni, a professor of astronomy and archeology at Colgate University, in Hamilton, N.Y., told United Press International.

    "This was taken seriously by women because it was a rite intended to eliminate feminine barrenness and awaken the powers of fertility."

    This gentle "flogging" was to stimulate sexual organs in anticipation of spring and fertility.

    "Valentine's Day is a sort of coming out party from the dead of winter, although the winter was not so dead in Central Europe where many of the customs originated," said Aveni. "It's a season of anticipation to an awakening world, we're theoretically past the coldest day of the year on Jan. 25, so the rest is downhill to May Day, when sexual acts actually occur."

    Aveni, an investigator of our holiday beliefs, has traced Valentine's Day from Lupercalia to the proclamation of St. Valentine's sainthood.

    The actual origin of Valentine's Day is a bit murky and Aveni offers several possible versions.

    Roman Emperor Claudius II had difficulty drafting men into his army, so believing men did not want to leave their families or loves, canceled all marriages and engagements in Rome. Valentine, a priest in Rome at that time who aided Christian martyrs and secretly married couples, was stoned to death and later made into a saint in one version.

    Another version has St. Valentine as a martyred Roman who refused to give up Christianity. He befriended his jailer's daughter and left her a farewell note signing it "From your Valentine."

    According Hamilton College Classics Professor Barbara Gold, love for ancient Romans was interesting, both to live and to write about, because it was painful, like a disease.

    "The Roman poets, almost all men, described themselves as 'wounded, wretched, enslaved by their lovers, having their bone marrow on fire and suffering from double vision,'" Gold told UPI. "Love was an affliction, a painful one, and men were enslaved by horrible women."

    The erotic love poets such as Catullus, Propertius and Ovid in first century B.C. Rome melded coarse obscenities with deepest expressions of sexual, erotic longing.

    The poets wrote about male lovers who were dominating, unfeeling and promiscuous and love was an intellectual pursuit to be embellished with obscure mythological details and dished up in elegant, contrived metrical forms and diction, according to Gold.

    One of Catullus' poems to his Lady Lesbia is two lines long and would not be out of place on any number of current reality television programs such as FOX's "Joe Millionaire" or ABC's "The Bachelorette."

    "I hate and I love. Perhaps you ask why do I do that?

    I don't know but I feel it happening and am tormented," (Catullus translation adapted by Guy Lee).

    Sooo, the whole thing goes back to sex yet again? Yeesh. I think if you trace back a large number of our traditions, you'll find a Roman behind them. Crazy Romans.

    Oh, and Jorg, I think you should come with us on Friday. Your company is always welcome! :)

    Yes, George, you are more than welcome to attend the movie screening with us!

    Gepper- Are you still looking for someone to go to Smackdown with you? If so (since I am not going out of town) let me know and I will go with you!

    Actually, if you think about it, absolutely everything in our society and societies of the past have been about the pursuit of sex power and money. Often times the power and money are about getting more sex. If men think about sex every 15 seconds or so, is it any wonder that...
    ....I'm sorry I lost my train of thought for a second.

    Anyway, back to DD
