my (ideal) valentine…

Even though elrock convinced us that this faux holiday was no more than a ponzi scheme and the never ending emails from 1800flowers.com have forced me to change email addresses permanently, I am still somewhat unsettled with the fact that I sit here alone on the day of the little fat man/baby in a diaper with a bow and arrow that makes you settle…the more important thing is that I have no one to overwhelm with chivalry and gifts…

[moment of silence for this ‘woe is me moment’]

But don’t fret you dedicated ubf readers…while I can’t virtually open your door or pay for your delightful Sizzler meal, I can however deliver you a gift on this amazing Hallmark created holiday…and in typical onetrik fashion this gift will be slightly self-serving…

I bring you the characteristics of my desired valentine…and what better way to do that than through celebrity examples such that you fully understand what the requirements include…not to say that she needs to be a celebrity (however knowing any of these ladies will make this quest significantly easier) but the following will paint the picture of what St. Valentine intended for your guy…

–          Eva Longoria’s lack of intuition…seriously someone that has no idea that me and the homie’s date have been eye-screwing all night is a skill that comes in handy…

–          Fergie’s lack of femininity…assuming that is accompanied by a better understanding of the importance of sports and the body’s elimination of gas through one of two holes…

–          Jennifer Hudson’s work ethic…I mean damn…those before and after pictures are so far apart they can’t even be photoshopped into the same frame…

–          Halle Berry’s ability to ruin what on the surface looks like a great relationship because I’ve recently realized I don’t want to miss out on this emerging ‘second wife’ trend…

–          Tracee Ellis Ross’ hair…I just want to lay in it and watch people on family fued talk about smoking weed

–          Natalie Portman’s dominance and competitive spirit…she must listen to DJ Khaled’s only recognizable song on the regular because home girl hands out beatings…

–          One of the Kardashian sister’s championship luck…I’ve had my eye on this rec league basketball championship but our team just can’t get over that hump…

–          Rihanna’s red hair…that joint sticks out in the crowd as a warning light if I’m ever caught in a creeping situation…and she can’t lie about using your brush…

–          Kerry Washington’s forehead…I want her flaw to be something that keeps me grounded but doesn’t get her kicked out of bed…

–          Katy Perry’s heart…if it can support those mammary glands then she is going to be living for a very long time…

–          Rosario Dawson’s jaw…it just seems so strong…enough said right?!?…

–          Beyonce’s outlook…because as my exes have discovered…I’m for damn sure replaceable…

–          Oprah…you didn’t expect her to make the list with the small exception of her never ending money stacks but instead I’m adding her ability to have mama dukes love her…as a self-appointed mama’s boy this is an integral piece…

Obviously this is just a joke…I don’t need my future valentine to have anything in common with Oprah…but what isn’t a joke is the 364 days you have to find her such that we are not sitting here next year having a similar conversation…

What about you other ubf loners? What are you looking for in a valentine? Or more interestingly, what are those of you with a valentine looking for in an upgrade? I won’t tell unless I know them…

onetrik…all celebrity charitable donations are tax deductable….

    Wow…looks like I wasn’t the only one trying to avoid Cupid’s holiday. No one commented on this blog post. So now that I’m a few hours passed the holiday I think I can actually talk about it.

    I met up with one of my advisors (yes I have a tribal council that I turn to for guidance) and she said I need to come up with a list of the qualities I want in a mate. I LOVE lists but for some reason this is the one list I have NEVER made. I guess my fear is I don’t want to be like Chili and have too many requirements on said list. I don’t want to limit who “the one” might be. But I promised my advisor I would come up with this list and since I can’t seem to sleep, no time like the present. Maybe I’ll share my list…IDK…might be a list not meant to share.

    • and here I was assuming that everyone was out searching for my valentine and too busy to comment…

      as all know, we at ubf fully support any form of a list and especially one associated with what is wrong with the person you are currently settling for…

      oh and sharing is always caring so we look forward to judging…I mean reviewing your list once completed…

    The Oprah shout out was hilarious and brave bc I’m sure she has someone scouring all of blogdom for Oprah hits that she will personally recompense. However, Rosario does it for me. I’ve never wanted to be Will Smith more than in 7 pounds. Well maybe back in the day when he released the Summertime music video but that was b4 I discovered life was more than hot sun and basketball. On a totally random note, for some reason Tina Fey’s dry humor sparks a curious suspicion that all is not dry and for that reason she’s on my Valenine list
