Happy Tyr’s Day!
Now that I am divorced and single, Valentine’s Day gives me a lot of mixed feelings.
Of course, I wish I could celebrate the love I have for someone on this day, but that isn’t going to happen so being the follower of Stoic philosophy that I am I am focusing on the positive.
- I don’t have to spend money on gifts and that means saving for me.
- I can focus on the possibilities of who I might get to be my new life partner.
- I also can smile at how feminine this holiday is.
Going to be blunt this is about romance and so is more of a female holiday. I have long been a supporter of a more masculine holiday in March My favorite is using March 14th as Beer, Steak, and a Blowjob Day. This lines up with more masculine wants. Valentine’s Day is not going to get you beer, or a steak spending your own money and while sexy time might happen on Valentine’s but it’s going to be romantic sex which is OK but sometimes as a man you just want the girl to do the work to show you how much she loves you.
Not to mention this is a Christian holiday, named after a Christian ‘saint’. Freya doesn’t mess too much around with Romance. She once was accused of fucking every god in Asgard. She never denied this, but she did say Loki had bad manners for accusing her in front of everyone. The fact she was sexually active with more than one partner was not considered a shame in that she did it. I tend to take this view about sex as well. It’s just that society frowns on this attitude, and I just don’t want the hassle.
Maybe that is why when I look at holidays that are supposedly secular and know the religious origins, I just have trouble getting into the ones based on Christian holidays. Most of the rest are pagan holidays that Christianity stole so you can convert them back.
Maybe next Valentine’s I will be with someone special and my feeling will be more on par with normal. But today, I am just mixed about the whole thing,
Goals for Today:
- Settling up my shelves when they arrive – hopefully. This is two shelves and represents a lot of time so it is my only goal for today
Yesterday’s goals were both achieved. Hoping to start therapy soon and waiting on on landlord.

I bought a V-day card four years ago because it was the one I’d send to that special person who has yet to appear 7 years into single-again life. It’s still in my card box.
And as I recall your birthday is 3.14 so I’ll forgive you your wish list for Pi Day.
Actually my birthday is 3.18. I haven’t bought a card yet. Going to keep my money. Good to hear from you again.
