|These faces (Big Huge) say love to me.|
The way I see it, there are two ways to look at this weekend.
Option 1: It's a weekend to celebrate love or the lack of it. The time to hold someone (or a whiskey bottle) close and profess your love (not mutually exclusive — the human/whiskey bottle thing — Pro Tip: you've got two hands). It can be one of those where we celebrate fake holiday with real people and chocolate (please).
Option 2: It's going to be fucking cold.
Don't let PDA and the freeze disturb you! There's some cool shit happening.
