Date Jesus

Atlanta’s own Chilli (of TLC fame) is the focus of a new dating reality show on VH1.  This is the same network that brought such shows as Tough Love, Rock of Love, and now What Chilli Wants.  Well, according to the trailer, what she wants is too much, which is why she has had problems finding the one.

I’m sure in some bizarro world of reality television, Chilli Photo: Gossip on This could actually have a problem with a dating relationship.  I’m curious enough to watch just to see if she struggled with some of the same hangups many of us had and may still have.  Finding random and nonsensical reasons not to give someone a shot.

Watching a few scenes from the show made me laugh out loud, especially when Chilli’s friend, music producer,  Missy Elliot said she should just “Date Jesus”.  Clearly she was implying that no person walking the earth could meet any criteria that is totally unrealistic.

However, for argument’s sake, if anyone could pull off having a firm grip on a dating checklist, why couldn’t she? The woman is beautiful, famous, and probably has a pretty sweet personality.  Why shouldn’t she have her bar set pretty high?

Would someone that was not in the limelight actually handle dating her with finesse and class?

I’m just wondering, is it about settling for someone you don’t want or dating Jesus? Isn’t there another door or A new option that we don’t talk about: staying unmarried?

Do you think that every single/uncoupled person who has not met the one should reconsider all of their standards? Is  waiting for  as long as it takes to find the one a selfish and unrealistic decision?

Dig That – Hayel YEAH —>it is even more gross when the placenta comes out

I was thinking the same thing but I wasn’t going to bring it up…but I was like WOOOOOOW! They took it out and put it in a bucket. My mom made a joke about the ambilical cord…she said she thought the doctor was never going to get to the end of it as she was pulling it out. My sis did opt to save some of the cord blood to be stored for future reference in case anything happens.

@melo – my sis isn’t married and no we didn’t watch the video with the whole fam silly. It’ll be cool for my niece to see it when she gets older though especially when or if she starts acting crazy…be like, You see what it took to bring you in this world…well it’ll shole take a lot less to take you out..and with much less blood. :lol:

“Didn’t you hate it when the cows would get out?”

Reminds me of back in High School (went to Southwest DeKalb)…anyhoo, this dude had a trailer of cows and ended up having an accident and hitting a utility pole. The cows were everywhere and the impace caused the power to go out at school during lunchtime…as soon as lights went out, we had a massive food fight. All you heard were folks throwing trays and screaming….it was funny as I took cover under a table…then a fight broke out and someone got a whole plug of hair pulled out of their head. Mayne, those were the days :-)

Melo, wild mushrooms. I did those before I smoked weed :) Sometimes a cougar would take a cow down every know and then, right now wolves have been a problem as well for the last few years. I have some pictures I will send you from our hunts, deer, cougar and wolves. I imagine it is nothing compared to the game in your place of birth.

@Carlito

yes and no.

I grew up around mostly baboons,deer,wild pigs,antelope and leopards. Lions?,not so much in my area but plenty in other areas.Lions prefer a particular type of vegetation,vlei with smaller grass…

Some areas are so over populated with elephants and lions so much that villagers play catch and mouse with them,and get killed by lions and elephants esp in dry season when they are looking for food and water.
Most Big game(lions,buffalo,elephant,leopard) tho is found in game parks

My dad and his friend used to take my brother and I on(illegal) hunting trips along the main hyways at nite,hunting for big antelopes and deer.

Most fun times!

Samsung 750/850/870 is da bomb, simply outstanding. The thin panel gives off less heat, but still enough so you can feel it within 1 foot of the TV — heat is the enemy of our electronics, worth taking into account. The @Internet stuff is a bit of a waste due to extremely poor performance, but is kind of fun. The picture, though — the color and definition! Great stuff.

SEXYCOOL Resilience. That’s one of the things I always get out of your nonchalantly shared stories and you’ve thrown out some whoppers. It’s so great how you make a choice daily to embrace the other joys to be had in this life, rather than dwell on the less joyful periods you’ve endured to get here. HUGS!

SLIM See now I’m mad at you for playing the role of Cinematographer. I was innocently lookin’ thru baby pics of one of my lill schmoopies and was suddenly my eyes were catapulted all up in a bestie’s vaginal canal. I was like WTF?!?!! She shrugged it off like, “Oh who knew that was in there and threw it right back into the pile! LMAO I was like don’t you wanna take it out? That fool was like nah. You have no more secrets after delivery…

Aw, shucks, MyTwo.
I tell you – if there is *any*thing that I have learned about life – It’s that these trials come to make us strong and that most of the bllsht that we go through won’t kill us even when we feel like we’re dying.
And I’ve learned that adversity is going to be a part of life. Now – that doesn’t mean that I’m fan of it – it just means that I know it may be able to get me down, but it won’t count me out.

Samsung and Panasonic would be my choices. Brand Smart has a Panasonic Viera 50 Plasma that is great for less than $700 at the moment. 3 HDMI ports,optical audio all of the bells and whistles. Well under $700 I think.

Samsung 50″ PN50B850 sold for around $1299 Super Bowl Week, then went up a few hundred bucks. Panasonic P50G10 is a good alternative for around $1200, not as thin, not the same Internet capabilities; G15 will go a bit more.

That reminds me, there was a Panasonic 42″ plasma at BrandsMart during Super Bowl week when I was shopping, going for $400!! It was an excellent set, too. The price may have gone up $100 or so. Can’t beat it for value, a great plasma at a great price, if 42″ is big enough.

LOL Slim. Yeah. I don’t get the screaming birthers. I know everyone handles pain differently though.

No screaming here. Just some winces of pain. Mason said while I asleep at the hospital while being monitored he could hear me moan and grunt in my sleep. When the contractions got so bad that they woke me up I heard say “here comes another”. He saw it on the monitor seconds before I felt it.
