Yep, while smug couples go out to dinner tonight and laugh at what they think are lonely single people, we are turning the tables on them by celebrating International Quirky Alone Day.
"Above all, IQD is a celebration of romance, freedom and individuality. It celebrates true romance (as opposed to the fake versions presented to us in reality dating shows), independence, creativity, friendship, and all kinds of love--including love for yourself."
So who the heck are these souless, anti-love, and anti-capitalism (hey, we don't spend enough money on flowers and chocolates so we must be communist, right?) America destroying individuals? A quirky alone (QA) is defined as
Quirkyalone noun/adj. A person who has the capacity to enjoy single life (but is not opposed to being in a relationship) and generally prefers to be alone rather than dating for the sake of being in a couple.
So how will I be celebrating tonight? I will be performing improv as part of the Penis Monologues at the Live Theater Workshop in Tucson. In other words, doing something I love with old friends. What better way to spend any night?
