SPEAK OUT: What Angelenos Really Feel About V-DAY

by Erin Darling 11 February 2009 116 views One Comment


If not already indicated by the results of our monthly THE POP FIX poll, everyone has their own way of celebrating Valentine’s Day. Some go the traditional route of  tender cuddling and teddy bears, while others reach for the Tanqueray. Some revel in the romance while others regurgitate at the sight of cards, flowers and balloons decorated with really bad “roses are red, violets are blue” poetry.

Either way, we wanted to find out how Angelenos really plan on spending their V-Day and what they need to ensure that their holiday is worthy of a journal entry. This is what some very candid LA-residents told us, and you might be surprised…

“For the last few years my V-Day essential has been a single girlfriend to go out to a fancy dinner with! Who needs a boyfriend?” -Sarah, 24.

“Massage oil, candles, and a little Barry White.”- Joshua, 21.

“Lingerie.”- John, 23.

“A whole bottle of tequila, maybe a lime too. My girlfriend dumped me last week.”- Robert, 24.

“A five-inch syringe filled with crushed E, heroine, and gin will put ANY girl in the mood.”- Anonymous Creeper, age unknown.

“Flowers and champagne are my essentials for Valentine’s Day.”- Rachel, 21.

“Dinner and a classic CD, like Al Green or something along those lines can go a long way.”- Janet, 22.

As you can see from the responses, apparently Valentine’s Day accessories range from illegal drugs to Al Green. Thanks for your entertaining answers…we at THE POP FIX encourage you all to have a safe and happy Valentine’s Day.
