Feeling/Not Feeling: The Vday Love Edition


Feeling

  • * roses . I think they are so beautiful to look at. White ones are my favorite.

  • * all this chocolate! I go into diabetic shock 

  • * dressing up and going out on a fancy date . That's always fun

  • * red is my favorite color so red is everywhere 

  • * red lingerie. Nuff said

  • * doing it ( shrug) Condom sales be thru the roof.

  • * diamonds

  • *chocolate covered strawberries.

  • * some guys really do put their best foot forward for valentines day

  • * I hate Vday themes parties.

  • * the movie Valentines Day is always gonna be on from now on 

  • * being single is good. I mean you can have multiple dates right ? Lol

  • * love songs all day long

  • * lots of babies will get conceived lol

  • * mushy commercials

  • *spa specials

  • * maybe I'll have a valentine this year

  • * kissing 

  • * champagne is everywhere! 

  • * surprises at work. Flowers etc

  • * I miss the old school parties you had in school w/ the little candy grams from classmates 

Not Feeling:

  • * but as Andre 3000 reminds us... Roses still smell like boo boo

  • * getting engaged in holidays are lame but a Vday proposal or wedding is extra lame. 


  • *if your birthday is the same day, just like Christmas you are screwed 

  • * but I hate all things pink . Blah!

  • * just because someone gets you a gift doesn't mean they care or if you don't get a gift that they don't care. It is one day. Not a measure of love. 

  • * what if v day is the first time you have sex w/ that person and it's wack? You're going to hate hate that day forever.

  • * speaking of sex ... Sex toys and trying wild freaky stuff like a swingers.club are awful gift (unless you are into that sorta thing) 

  • * women who forget to pamper the guy as well. It ain't all about you! 

  • * that wack basket from the gas station or sold on the street

  • * cheap perfume

  • * e-cards. How lazy are you not to go down to hallmark 

  • * people who commit suicide from loneliness. Painful 

  • * that this stupid holiday isn't even a real one yet folks get bent outta shape over it. It should come like leap year 

  • * first dates being on that day. I do not take them for the simple fact that's too much pressure and people have too many fronts going on. You ain't this dope all the time

  • * I guess black people don't buy diamonds cause we are hardly ever in commercials

  • * lots of crying induced by liquor lol

  • * sad love songs 

  • *how hurt you have to be to actually throw an "I hate valentines day " party

  • * I've never had a valentine. Nope. Not even when I was married. Never had flowers sent either. Blah! Lol

  • *if you got divorced or dumped on Vday ... Here is a hug in advance 

  • *sending flowers to yourself 

  • * those big ass heart shaped cookies from the mall. Nasty!

  • * being single on that day. People just damn you to a life of matronly solitude 

  • * that you are going to have to deal w/ your annoying in love friends all damn day 

  • *just turn off Facebook lol

  • * yes unfortunately we gotta deal with this wretched pseudo holiday again next year

  1. LMAO @ roses still smell like boo-boo. Whenever I hear someone refer to poop as "boo-boo", I start laughing. Is that a Southern thing? I never heard that until I left MA. Poop jokes aside, I'm over V-Day and it isn't even here yet! I already made the crabcakes. . .now what?!

  2. My mama's BFF got married on V day YEARS ago my mama told her not to do it of course they ended up div but they had a good run almost 20yrs.

    I have a play niece whose b day is V day. I always feel sorry for her she is a teen, but then again she gets extra gifts.

    I have not had a Valentine since college.

    I am deciding if my V day treat will be Godiva choc cheescake or a cheesecake brownie *decisions decisions*

  3. Goodness, i havent been out on a date in so long i dont even remember what that's like (lol - not kidding). We're "supposed" to be starting that back up for 2012 but we'll see. smh

    Mmm, i love chocolate covered strawberries. Me and my sisters send that to one another for every birthday. It's so inexpensive at Edible Arrangements, and of course we're splitting the cost by 3 (lol). But it's such a nice, sweet, inexpensive way to pamper yourself, i look forward to mine every year.

    lmaooo @ having wack sex on V-day. I guess that would kinda taint the holiday going forward. Hahaha!

    lol, we grew up saying "boo boo" too Hilary, and my parents are from the south... so maybe it is a southern term?

  4. To be honest, I've always viewed Valentines Day as a bullshit holiday. Still, anyday that is designated as a day to give lingerie is a damned good day. But the thing I like most about Valentines Day is the fact that my birthday is 3 days before Valentines Day, so I always know how far I have to go that day based on what I got.

  5. Ok in an effort to be better for 2012..I promise to respond to people (LOL)

    @Hilary..yeah..I think "boo boo" is a polite Southern way of saying poop. I mean..crabcakes aside..we gotta come out guns blazing. Are the stillettos and your preggers belly still out of the question? I mean just to teeter into the bedrom? LOL

    @Daisy..yeah getting married on holidays and birthdays..BAD IDEAS. I got married on Earth Day (LOL)..I still love the earth though. But perhaps oyu will get a Valentine..and I choose cheesecake...always

    @Yakini:*gasp* You and D need to make time for a date. You two are both too young and gorgeous for that. Period! As long as the sex isnt wack (which I am sure it wont be...)

    @Reggie: Yes..Vday is a made up holiday..but so is "Halloween" and I love it just the same (Well..I actually like Halloween more) Im sure given its close proximity to your birthday..you are winning all around!

Dating and the Dark-Skinned Girl

Often times in the circle of close bloggers, who become friends, we get into debates (albeit friendly ones) but debates nonetheless. I happened to be on my "private" blog site reading a dear friend's blog. I love her to death and she's been like a big sister to me, helping me through my divorce as a shoulder to cry on and listening ear. And although I've never met her in person...I do consider her a friend (that may sound strange to most..but it isnt to bloggers!) She's a gorgeous Black and Mexican woman..living in southern Cal and raising her teenage son amazingly! I was reading her blog...and came across this:

Ok..just a random thought... What is with the expression "LSLH?" Because it's usually used in a negative way, I'm offended by it.It irks me to no end! I mean, does it make us less of a black women because we have lighter skin and long hair? So when I read blogs or websites that use that expression, I think it's sad. So what if I&…

The "Fleece Johnson" Guide to Dating

I am not sure if any of you saw the recent Boondocks where they spoofed prison culture and gayness. Well....if you haven't...here is a little clip of where they got their inspiration from. Fleece Johnson...the Booty Warrior... So yeah...Fleece is a little crazy..but we are about to roll with thiis for a minute. I am about to take the "Fleece Johnson" no holds barred approach to dating. If I see a dude it's going down  like this: I likes ya I wants ya We can do this the easy way Or the hard way....your choice. Now..Fleece might be talking about gay men and booty warrior and "hornin". But..I'm talking about taking the same approach to men. If I see a dude I want..I WANT HIM. Imma have him. We can play games and bullshit and do it the hard way...OR we can do it the easy way...you give in to me and my desires (and yours)..and be happy. Which would you rather have? Would you rather have to do dumb sh*t to work for a good woman? Or take an easy approach with the sam…

The Art of the Dirty Talk

I am the queen of talking dirty after dark. I mean I am GOOD at it. VERY good. So much so I dated a guy and for months..all he wanted me to do was speak nasty to him. We never has sex. Nothing. Just a bunch of dirty talk....and he was happy. (Hey..a very safe sex fetish!) Heck..I'm even considering picking up some extra income in this economy and becoming a phone sex operator...my job does NOT pay enough.

I will say there is an ART to dirty talk. You cant be shy. You cant be a prude and say things 1) you are not comfortable saying and 2) that you certainly can't back up if you are in a position to act on those things with a trust partner. 3 ) things you have no real reference point of familiarity with. Don;t say you are down for a "golden shower" if you think that has something to do with "lemonade kool-aid". DOn't pretend to have a weird accent. That would be ROLE playing..and not "talking dirty". BUT a lot of "talking dirty" is role…
