Recently the Operations Manager at Murfie reminded everyone of the upcoming holiday known as
Black Tuesday Valentine’s Day. I had managed to suppress any thought of this holiday and was pretty content with living an illusion. But now, like a beacon of light, was an email, allowing all those who were hitched or tied up to receive the day off, in honor of Valentine’s Day and in an effort to avoid any “fighting.”
At first, this seemed like a thoughtful and awesome gesture. Significant Others all over the Ops Room must be rejoicing! And then I realized, I have no signif other, nor am I a signif other. Hold up, hold up, hold up. That means that all SINGLE Ops staffers will be scheduled to work together on Valentine’s Day. Can you imagine what the vibe in that room is going to be like? Red flag.
I immediately sent out an email to all my co-workers. Who wants to date me so we can get the day off?

At least it made for a kind of funny blog post…?
Here’s a variety of albums for every type of relationship status you may have this Valentine’s Day. And if you’re single – stop by Murfie HQ on February 14th. Us single Opsters will be dressed in black. Wine and heart-shaped pizza will be provided.
Rilo Kiley – Under the Blacklight
Kelly Clarkson – Breakaway
Puddle of Mudd – Come Clean
Wanting to be in a Relationship
Dashboard Confessional – A Mark, a Mission, a Brand, a Scar
In a Relationship, but you “don’t believe in being Facebook Official”
Usher – Confessions
In a Relationship
A’ight Murfie-ites, this is your challenge. Share an album that you think does a good job of characterizing “In a Relationship.” Because I sure as hell couldn’t come up with one. I wanted to go with something feminine and carefree, but female albums these days sound more like “You don’t need relationships, you don’t need a man, yeah single ladies!” So please, suggestions welcome. In the comments section below.
John Mayer – Battle Studies
In a Domestic Partnership
Juno – The Soundtrack
Colbie Caillat – Coco
In an Open Relationship
Ke$ha – Animal
Phil Vassar – Phil Vassar
