Will many of you be spending more on your collecting habits in February or more money on your honey, sweetie, signif. other, etc. for Valentine's Day? I just plan on getting my mom a card and maybe a few for the lovely ladies at work. :p

Well I vote for my Star Wars hobby, I don't have anybody to give a gift(only my mom, but I'll get her a SW card)...unless I talk to that girl I secretly like...but it's very unsure.

I think it'll have to be Valentines Day. I've got flowers going out to 2 people at $30 a pop. On Monday, although I don't have a girlfriend, I'm going out to dinner with my roommates wife (he's gonna be at work), her sister (I'm working on her right now), and her sister's best friend (also working on her) so that'll be at least another $100 for dinner. So add it all up and I'll have dropped over $150 on Valentine's day and I won't get so much as a kiss out of it.

Damn Hallmark holidays.

BTW, don't forget Sweetest Day is coming up.:rolleyes:

Considering that I am in love with myself, I plan on spending money on myself.

Valentine's Day - another holiday foisted on us by the florists of America! ;)

No doubt about this one. I'll be spending way more on my wife and best friend than I will on toys.

Power to the collectibles, they win my heart every time! Definitely spending my hard earned dollar on the Star Wars habit/collection. Every woman I have ever dated has broke my heart, so I've been slightly over two years without, and I'm keeping it that way (for now).

LOL!

Im somewhat in the same boat. Im single right now, but attempting to crack a very shy shell. I dont think its going to happen by Valentines Day, so its going towards my toys.

well, I don't collect much at all anymore, just a figure a month or less... BUT my girlfriend/wife doesn't think much of corporate "traditions", so I won't be spending crazy money, but I want to do something fun for her nonetheless........
So I am going to cook up a sweet dinner of some sort and go and buy some kind of crazy flowering plant... or something like that... then we'll likely watch some Kung-Fu movies (her choice, too, she really is perfect!!) or something... nothing too fancy, and no Valentine-specific spending..... we haven't added anything to our plant collection for almost a month :beard:

And if the weather's agreeable, we may even go for a walk abou town to see what goofy things we can see...

Whatever way, hope the day doesn't cause any grief :beard:

Kebco just hit me for 1/2 of the cost of my Episode 3 toys...so that adds up. And if the orders get filled in Feb, they'll hit me for the other half...so there is a chance that SW will get the nod this February.

Just doing Dinner and Roses.

That's incorrect...a bunch of that preorder was in January...so I am only at $74 for February...so as or right now the wife looks like she will win the who got more $ in february.

Damn Hallmark holidays.Exactly.

BTW, don't forget Sweetest Day is coming up.:rolleyes::D Yeah, in like 8 months.

I'm glad my fiance and I agreed not to get each other anything, but I have a feeling it's still gonna cost me dinner some night this week (I have class all day Monday).

Hmmm...gotta tread lightly with this one. Don't want to end up 35, single and living with mom.

LOL, jk ;)

I will be spending a lot on both. SW tends to win out by a slim margin, considering I just got the Han Solo mini bust and series 2 Bust-Ups. Still gonna drop a load on the wife for V-Day. I didn't mean that the way it sounded. I mean I plan on blowing a wad on...Oh never mind. I'm gonna spend a lot! :D

Well, 'ol Fluke is flying solo this Valtine's day. Dad always said, "Son, if you're going to break up with a girl, do it before Christmas and stay single until after Valtines day." Father knows best. (I should add, that unless Ms. Right suddenly appears, I hope to stay single until after RotS comes out. How sick is that!?)

This time last year I was sending flowers to my girlfriend at work, taking her gifts in the afternoon, and buying her dinner.
THAT WAS LAST YEAR!!
Now things are a little different...she's old news, and I plan on using my funds on myself. I got a little something for my coworkers, my mom, and my grandmother. Thats about it. Nothing major, just something to say Happy Valentines Day.
I concur with Fluke. This is the perfect time of year to be single.

I know that in my area, that is a brand far too rare...In fact, I am not even sure that it exists at all.
