Затаив дыхание: with bated breath

Breathing Out and Breathing In
The Word's Worth

 think we can say that Russians have taken to День святого Валентина
(aka St. Valentines Day) like a duck to water.  For weeks television, radio
and online ads have been rising to a fever pitch, and today flowers and candy
are now ten times their usual cost and restaurants, cafes, and even coffee
shops will be filled with cuddling couples.

This day-long love fest reminded me of one of my favorite expressions:
неровно дышать (to have a thing for someone, literally to breath unevenly).
Конечно, он пригласит тебя на бал! Всем видно, как он к тебе неровно дышит!
(Of course, hell invite you to the ball. Everyone knows that hes got a crush on you.)

how's that gonna work out?
Woman's Day AND Valentine's day are just a couple of weeks apart
this will just end up being another "not Russian" holiday like Halloween
despite what the merchants are trying to push onto everyone

in from Old New Year to Ripe Banana day.  :D
