Edmonton never stops surprising me. With valentines day coming it seems like everyone is preparing for the onslaught of commercialized bullshit and fake sentiment.
The fella and I are celebrating with a bunch of friends by going to see some roller derby. Nothing says I love you like watching girls in hot pants plaster each other all over hardwood.
For you queer singles or swingers the edmonton valley zoo is introducing a gay and lesbian version of the very popular "Animal Attraction: Speed dating" that they hold every year for valentines day. It is the first time they are holding this event and it sounds like it could be a lot of fun and a great chance to meet someone and check out the zoo without any crowds. The clunky name of Same Gender Speed Dating doesn't really speak to me but whatever it sounds like it could be fun!
If anyone goes let me know how it went!
