Oh The Weather Outside Is Frightful


***Late Admin Note***
Fellow Bloggers … don’t forget to submit your blogger fantasies to Ladebelle at Rants of a Wild Child.


I know, these legs aren’t Chocolate but its the Holiday Season you know this IS the movie. “F-R-A-G-I-L-E. Must be Italian.”

But your legs are so delightful…at least that’s what Eric Benet is preaching.

Its that time of year when people start talking about resolutions, goals, things they want to work on et cetera. And while I am not an advocate of New Years Resolutions per say (everyday should be continuous betterment), Mr. FAQs does have some things to work on, one being my level of affection.

I am not a fan of PDA (Public or Private). I don’t like being touched, bothered or my space being infringed upon. I am however confident that someday I will meet her and my quirks will dissipate but until then, they will continue to complicate and alienate even those towards whom I have the most ardent feelings.

Enter  Chocolate Legs by Eric Benet (Click to Listen/Download) and my hang-ups become a thing of the past in my mind. The first time I heard this song on the whip, I immediately thought, “Damn, I wish I could stand to cuddle.” Perhaps its because we both find Halle Berry attractive and are addicted to sex that makes every song this dude makes resonate, even though the subject matter is not always my practice.

This world ain’t nothing but crazy
I’m out here working trying to make it
Girl, it’s so rough in this city
There ain’t no resting for the weary
So baby feel me, I need something to feel
So my spirit can heal, babe

I need you to wrap them chocolate legs ’round me
So when I come home tonight, you’ll make everything alright
When you gon’ wrap them chocolate legs ’round me
The memory of my day will quickly just fade away
When you come wrap them chocolate legs ’round me
Please baby, wrap them chocolate legs ’round me

Ignoring the fact that I have a thing for flawless chocolate skin, I don’t think he could have worded the emotions any better. Especially in the current times we live in, what’s better than a pair of legs to make, “the memory of my day will quickly just fade away?” We’ve got a recession, job lost left and right, the fact that he’s still working at all should be reason enough to give up some Chocolate Legs.

According to Wikipedia, as a Sagittarius my “body parts” are the hips and thighs, which only makes sense as to why I would like this track so much. Since I was given the gift of sight legs have been my thing, having come up during that 80’s mini-skirt era. The silhouette of a set of firm legs in some HEELS ———–

Excuse me, I had a moment. But yea, that’s basically what I want when I hear this song. Not to mention we’re in the midst of winter, so some legs to keep you warm aren’t all that bad. I know I’m personally living in a bat cave after getting that gas bill with the day I forgot the oven was on 500 and left for 13 hours. Lights and heat are now a luxury – from now on it sweats, hoodies and if I’m lucky, some chocolate legs.

So what songs are yall listening to too “keep warm?”

-Mr. FAQs


  1. OMG @ left the gas on for 13 hours! At least you had a home left to come home to! Wow.

    I get to reflecting when it's near my birthday… not near New Years. On New Years I usually make a mental list of those who are coming with me into the new year, and those who are being left behind.

    Sometimes it's easier said than done.

    What happens when you finally meet the girl you want to be all wrapped up in, around and through and she is the one who needs her space?

  2. The winter makes me grumpy as hell…. but one song that always melts the icicles is "Let it Snow" by Boys II Men. I'd love to be in a cabin with a man (just like in the video) cuddled by the fireplace.

    BTW: I love to be touched, to be held if you look good/smell good. If you are not, I'll bite like a mogwai.

  3. Another Lonely Christmas – Prince
    Slowly & Phone Sex – Syleena Johnson
    My Body – LSG
    Customer – Raheem Devaughn
    Anything Goes – Christion
    Oh This Love Is So – Al B. Sure

    Play these songs and you are sure to have legs wrapped around you or thighs next to your ears.

  4. Yeah you need to pay more attention to that oven being on for 13 hours, that's not the business. As most men do, I love some thick legs wrapped around me snuggled up in the bed, it gets things pumpin (oh boy). Music not really the biggest part of the showbut some light R&B will do the trick. Does anyone remember the instraumental song "Moments in Love" by Art of Noise, now that is a problem.

  5. I'm listening to alot of christmas music now…Ledisi's is BAAAAAD and so is Musiq's new Christmas joint.

    Chocolate Legs is a nice cut..but i HATE the way Benet says choc-lat..(phonetically: (Cha-au-ka-lait) like he's rain man and what nots..he forgets the "o" in the middle…YUCK..that really grosses me out. It sounds funny LOL..im sorry im being immature.

    any way.. "You're the Only One" is one of the best songs he's ever sung.

  6. I left my oven on last night for like 9 hours. I was extremely salty this morning and thunderclapped myself (BGLO folk…) cuz it's gonna be reflected in our monthly bill for the apartment. As for songs, I'll have to get back to you on this one.

  7. I'm a scrooge so there is no particular Xmas or Winter song that I feel that way about.

    However…the thought of some velvety soft, creamy and luscious brown legs wrapped around me is an excellent thought. I just hope the person attached to those legs doesn't get on my nerves after an hour.

  8. Right now I'm listening to a lot of Christmas music:

    Artists I'm listening to with Christmas CDS:
    Ledisi, Brian McKnight, The Temptations, Whitney Houston (before the drugs), Motown Christmas, Jackson 5

  9. I'm listening to Ledisi's Christmas album…hard! I love it!

    Another Lonely Christmas by Prince (which I play all year, BTW)
    MomentInLife by Musiq f/Kindred and Cee-Lo (Cee-Lo pretty much makes any song he guests on better)
    Anthony Hamilton's new joint "Point of It All"

    and still playing my favorites by Lalah Hathaway.

    Chocolate Legs? For real, E.?
    I like that song he has out now, The Hunger.

  10. Definitely Boys II Men's "Let it Snow" (I see you, Nicki!). We have that boring 2520 Macy's version and then Boys II Men comes outta nowhere and invents this whole 'nother level of a classic. So much so that it (arguably) trumps the original. I LOVE IT!

    Also, Nat King Cole's "The Christmas Song". There's 5,000 versions of this song, but his has always been (since I was a wee shawty) and will always be my favorite. I remember hearing this in my Mama's car for the first time and being enraptured by the lyrics. Definitely warms me up.

  11. Hate to be picky BUT winer doesnt start til DEC 21 not Dec 1 or Nov 15th or when "its cold to me"…the 21st-the Solstice…longest night of the yr is the 21st we got it? good so yea its still Autumn…how would I know? Well it was 60 degrees in NYC this week…that aint winter!!

  12. Oh yeah, I remember the Moments in Love instrumental, especially the part where it pauses and the beat comes in stronger. Man…the memories of my hay day! I'm also a little touchy about PDA, but with that special someone that I'm very relaxed and comfortable around. I can expose myself to a little more touching and cuddling.
    Dang, u left the oven, I would definitely be without a home, homie!!!

    Well I just came out of my X-mas slump period, but while I was there I bumped:

    Lost & Found-Ledisi
    Concentrate on U & Love Ballad-Jeffery Osbourne
    Another Lonely X-mas-Prince
    One Million Times-Gerald LeVert (R.I.P.)
    Let it Snow-Boyz II Men (definitely a classic)
    Golden & The Way Love Feels- Chrisette Michelle

  13. @ RunningMom, if I meet her and she needs her space then coo. Its not that I "hate" affection across the board but I'm a selfish dude that wants it when he wants it but most times, I can live without it…if that makes any sense

    @slim, hahahaha @ thunderclaps…I mean I was kinda pissed once i figured out why even the clothes in my closet was warm but yea, it kinda ended there haha

  14. Anything Goes – Christion

    Whooooo Shawn….whatchu know about that song? I lurves it!

    Best Eric Benet track….I Wanna Be Loved!

    Hmmmm….Raheem DeVaughn – Empty, Four Letter Word, Some Kind of Way

  15. spending a winter(i refuse to say fall,because there are inches of snow on the ground in the chi) evening in bed sounds with someone soundsso nice right now…im not usually the most touchy feely person, but there are a few songs that make me feel that way…but they're somewhat random: syleena johnson-slowly, van hunt-seconds of pleasure, and john coltrane-in a sentimental mood, all make me wanna get all wrapped up

  16. My faves are "Adore" (Prince), "In a Sentimental Mood" (Coltrane), "Moments in Love" (Art of Noise), "Now You're Gone" (Floetry and Sebastian), and "Whenever, Wherever, Whatever" (Maxwell).
