    Bah humbug - Valentine's Version

    I just got this one in my email box:

    and
    Class Night (Venue 2)
    ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE
    Valentine Class Night … Cupid strikes his bow … even more choccies and more LOVEly music … J
    ...etc.
    (You get the picture)

    Good God Almighty - how tacky is that? Not to mention the thought of lurrve happening at Venue 2 is enough to make me wince.

    Are any other franchises going LurveCrazed this weekend?

    A few seem to be hedging their bets - Valentine's theme wise, but not publicly ostracising any dancers who don't have loved up partners for the event. (Unlike most restaurants, rubbing their hands in glee with set menus for 2 etc).

    Haven't seen one actively promoting single dancers yet though for Valentines.
    Would that cross the streams too much (being Single & looking for partner looking vs dance etiquette of no dancing just to try it on with folk?). Maybe just being a wee bit more flirtacious within limits is the happy medium for a Valentine's event?

    Was I the only one who misread that as 'mince'?

    As far as I can see, Valentines is just the commercialisation of love. Couple (no pun intended) that with the romanticisation of love and it's a wonder that marriages don't end in divorce half the time.

    Hmmm. A certain independent not a million miles from Watford Gap is ("proudly") offering "Your antidote to the usual guff: the anti-valentine's day freestyle ... no red roses, hearts or hallmark cards allowed". Admittedly this is scheduled for February 19th ... but by then I suppose you'll know whether to cast yourself off a tall building or not

    Does "cellophane wrapped bunch of overpriced about to wilt crimson flowers, with vaucous good looks covering up their lack of scent" cover it? :P
