Win A Date With OJ

Holler At You Blogstalkers.

I spent this morning trying to think of a post idea and eventually was about to just give up and post lots of pictures of OJ since you all seem to love him so much when it hit me.  I definitely needed to do a dating profile for OJ since I really want him to find Mrs. OJ soon so that I can have a BFF #2 (with Vanessa still firmly ensconced in the BFF #1 role.)

So without further ado. (You are welcome for this OJ.)

 Name: OJ

Age: 28

Location: Dallas, TX

Interested in: Women

Occupation: Purveyor of delicious baked goods.  Or, alternatively, provides the world with hot buns.

Favorite drink: Over-the-phone-shots of whiskey with his best friend Ryan.

He loves cuddling, country music and tearing up the dance floor.  He has a beautiful singing voice and only one time in college kicked a traffic cone that turned out to be covering a fire hydrant and broke his foot.







He can not tie a bow tie, though this does not stop him from wearing them.


He has an impeccable sense of style.

Someone else must have tied his bow tie for him in this picture.

He has a black belt in karate and is very tough and serious.

See?

But he's not afraid to let loose when the mood strikes.


I hope the ability to climb up walls is not important to you, because he can not do that.


He likes fruit.


He also likes meat.  

Clip-On Bow Tie - Because as previously stated, he can not tie bow ties.
 He is working on his table manners.

He is an excellent skier though he is terrible at wakeboarding.  Can't do it at all.  Not even a little.


He enjoys visiting museums and practicing yoga.  Sometimes simultaneously.


He is six foot something and his head fits nicely into a pumpkin.


He has a sensitive side.


Sometimes he likes to just stand on a pier and think.


Or sit near the coast and contemplate life.


Or be alone with his thoughts in a meadow.



Or gaze out the porthole of a ship while dwelling on important notions.


He has a funny side too.  And a love-hate relationship with traffic cones apparently.


He's a very good best friend.


 And he's fantastic at hugs.  Plus this picture suggests that he might be into cougars.


He can cut a rug like no other.


Even if he's the only one on the dance floor.


I don't know for sure but it doesn't look like he's good at bowling.


The boy can sing.


The boy can seriously sing.  And again, might be into cougars. 


He's a triathlete.



And looks a lot like an Indian David Boreanaz.



One time he grew a mustache but he's promised not to do that again, so that's good.


 He is a veritable television star as he once was on an episode of Diners, Drive Ins and Dives.


He can jump really really high.


I guess there's not much else to say, so I'll just post one last picture.


 So that is that.  Anyone interested in being his other half and then also being second best friends with me?  It's like a two-for-one!

    1. Tell her to go say hi if she ever spots OJ! Dallas isn't that huge right?

  2. Two things.

    1) I love my fiancee buuuuuut where was OJ three years ago when I was single and looking for someone awesome?!?!

    2) Would he be willing to move to Chicago?

    3) We should still be best friends.

    That might have been totally creepy....and more than two things.

    1. 1) In Dallas baking breads.

      2) His company is in Dallas so probably not, though we beg him to ALL THE TIME. And one time tried to kidnap him and steal his return flight tickets.

      3) Sure why not? We're both in Chicago right?

  5. Oh he is just adorable. (although the picture of him eating that hunk of flesh almost made me yak. I've totally become "that" vegetarian.)
    I'm much too old and boring for him but being your BFF #2 would be a blast. Except I would probably have to leave the house for more than work and grocery shopping and I probably couldn't do that. I like wearing my pajamas too much.

  10. Alas as I am both married and too old for OJ (except in the cougar category). However I hope he does find that special someone. He seems like a great guy and it is hard to believe he's still single.

    If only this was 20 years ago and I was 20 (almost 21) and not married. :-( I would have said 15 years ago to make me a respectable 25, but by then I was not only married but also pregnant.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm already married but boy does he sound like a catch! Makes me wonder why he is single. Guess he just didn't meet me in time. Too bad. I'd like to be your second BFF. I'm sure there wouldn't be a dull moment. :)

    1. Oh there are plenty of dull moments. Like just this morning, one of my dogs and I sat on the couch and had a yawning contest for like ten minutes. Totally boring.

  13. I'm old enough to be considered a cougar to him, i.e. 38. But alas I live in Phoenix. If you know of any lawyer jobs I'm so ready and willing to move to Chicago and would love to be your BFF#2. Hee! I totally wonder though if he knows you're pimping him out?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Oh he totally knows, I asked him first!

      Sadly I know of zero lawyer jobs here or in Dallas (where OJ lives) otherwise I would totally support your moving and our being BFF#2s.

  14. I'm pretty sure that you just described the exact kind of guy I'm looking for. Just saying. I can even sing, so we could do awesome "Stacy's Mom" duets. And I'd love to be BFF #2! Would you consider relocating to NC? Or relocating me to you, instead? I'm open to negotiation :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Haha! Or relocating all of us to Dallas? I'll take it under consideration.

      Also, I am jealous of people that can sing and you can sing and thus I am jealous of you. Transitive property.

    2. I've been on the lookout for a place to move to.....I could totally put Dallas on the list. Or Chicago. I think we need to know what OJ's reaction to all these comments is!

  15. Megan Dunklee2/21/2013

    If only I wasn't married, haha. Looks to me like OJ's first requirement should be a woman who knows how to tie a bow tie. Also, OJ seems to sit and think a lot of random places, maybe that should be requirement 2. He really does look like David Boreanaz, if I had any friends in TX who were single I would hook him up.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Haha I totally photo-stalked his facebook page today and laughed when I saw the pictures of him being pensive. Then I had to use them all because it cracked me up.

      And the bow tie thing, he was taught how to do it for my wedding but has seemingly forgotten.

    1. Haha! I think I mentioned Dallas when I answered your comment above. Alternatively, we could all move to Dallas since that is where the delicious bread is.

  18. This post makes me feel oddly competitive with OJ. I bet I'm a WORSE bowler and wall climber. Plus, like, I can't sing even a little, which is obviously way better than being able to sing. ALSO. I think I could legit win at a heel clicking contest. But the biceps? He wins. (I like to make it so that things that aren't about me at all BECOME all about me because I am vain and have nothing of substance to add but wanted to post anyway.) OJ! HEEL CLICKING CONTEST! IT'S ON!

    So, two things...
    1. I live in Dallas as well and would be happy to introduce him to all my single girlfriends (particularly my BFF)! They're all really nice and would be an excellent BFF #2 for you, and then you and I could be BFFs #3 by extension (that's how it works, right??)!
    2. My husband and I are also triathletes! Does he ever need new training partners or people to go on bike rides with? Seriously... we're always open to finding new people to ride with. He could definitely contact me if he's interested.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 1. He goes out to the bars and restaurants in Dallas pretty regularly and if you ever see him you should SO introduce yourself (and all your single girlfriends.) I'll let OJ know your offer as well.

      2. I think he trains with a whole team but I'll ask him about this too!

      Delete
    2. Jayne C.2/21/2013

      Since I'm an "old", boring, married woman I don't make it out to bars as often as I used to. But if he does go for the blind date fix-up contest, I will definitely make sure to enter my friends! Or maybe I can go stalk him at his bakery! What's it called again? That's not too creepy, right??

      Delete
    3. Jayne C.2/21/2013

      And by "stalk", I totally mean just go buy bread! Because who doesn't need freshly baked bread?

      Delete
    4. His company is Signature Baking Company but they're purely commercial (I'm almost positive.) Which just means that a lot of the Dallas restaurants and hotels and stuff use their bread. That's the reason OJ was in the Maple & Motor episode of Diners Drive Ins and Dives, because he provides them with their buns for their awesome burgers.

      And OJ is kind of wary of blind dates but I'll let you know if he changes his mind!

      Delete
  26. girl, you should be in marketing. because you've even got happily not-single ladies interested! anyway. i'm in chicago periodically to visit my boyfriend {thus why i'm not applying for the date-oj show}, so can i claim a spot as bff #3? or #4? i'm flexible about my position in your bff hierarchy...

    1. First, Thanks!

      Second, sure why not. I never do anything but sit around and play on my computer so I'm always looking for something to do!

  27. I laughed out loud at the number of pictures of OJ just sitting in places and contemplating life. Too funny. Everyone else has really said it for me. Already married? Check. How is he single? Check. If only I'd met him. . .Check. :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I know! Honestly I had to sort through like five years of OJ pictures to get all of those so it's not like he does the pensive thing constantly, I just think they're funny as a group.

      Delete
  28. okay, i might be hyperventilating. I was scrolling through his pictures thinking, "Oh my gosh! He totally looks like Booth! I mean David Boreanaz! Who is,like, one of the loves of my life!" I was sure I was exaggerating as I have been more obsessed than usual with Bones, but then you said it too! Also, I would LOOOVE to be your BFF #2, and since I don't eat most cheeses, it means more cheese for you! Okay, i will stop gushing now.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. He TOTALLY looks like David Boreanaz, they're just different colors.

      Also, you probably win the fake competition just by letting me have your unwanted cheeses. Ryan loves cheese too, the big jer.

    2. Yay! I knew not liking cheese would come in handy one day!

  29. Ok so I don't know which would excite me more, joining your best friend group or dating tall, dark, and gorgeous. But I do already live in Dallas, not to sway the vote.

    1. Too late, vote swayed. You win.

      But seriously, if you ever see OJ out in Dallas, just say hello, he's super super friendly.

  30. Maybe if OJ weren't hanging out in meadows being pensive, you'd already have a BFF#2! (And he'd have a wife but clearly your BFF needs are more important than his wife needs!)

    OJ is adorable. I'm much too boring and old for him, but I do know how to tie a bow tie. Maybe the solution is multiple wives? One for each skill? That way we wouldn't all have to move to Dallas.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hmmm, like sister wives? That idea makes me laugh because I picture Ryan and one of the sister wives. I wonder what his job would be?

      Delete
    2. I would say Ryan would be the ruby buying sister wife but we all know he isn't great at that, RYAN.

      Perhaps Ryan could be the shirtless sister wife. That would allow him to display his greatest skill. ;)

      Delete
  31. Can we clone OJ so I can give one of each clone to all my single girlfriends who are also in the "How are you still single" category. However, the original OJ should be reserved for my sister, should he be interested in moving to San Francisco...I think he'd make an awesome brother in law.

    so I can't actually jump on the I-would-move-to-Dallas-to-be-Mrs.-OJ train since all of the college-ing and single mom-ing leave little time for jet setting dating BUT I just have to say that it makes me super happy to know there are fellas like OJ out there, and I hope he finds an incredible girl when the time is right!

    1. He's a great guy and Ryan and I very much hope the exact same thing!

  33. My computer totally just had a tantrum and is making me type this all over. Does OJ know he's being auctioned off? If so that's funny, if not that's hilarious. I think I'm a smidge too old for OJ and I have a love hate thing with Dallas plus yeah I can't sing at all and no one should ever encourage me to unless they want loud off key noises being hurled in their general direction. Dallas has good food and best ice cream ever (Blue Bell and Marble Slab). But my family is there and that's why I haven't lived there since 1993. He is totally adorable though and he does look like an Indian David Boreanaz which is a definite plus. And it would be nice to have someone around to eat all the baked goods I want to make but shouldn't eat alone. Ahh well, I hope BFF #2 is exactly what you and OJ would like her to be.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh yes, OJ is well aware of this post, I wouldn't have done it without his consent!

      I've only been to Dallas once but the food we had we delicious! Plus doesn't Tiffany Derry from Top Chef have her restaurant there? We actually have a Marble Slab nearby here to (if it's the same place) so I've tried that for sure.

  36. You know what's weird? I also have a traffic cone complex. Except, I like to steal them whenever I see a random one all buy it's self. I "saved" one, put a smiley face on it, and placed it in the garage for my mom to see when she came him. She was not amused. His name was Chad! I should write about Chad and his babies (that I stole for him)...

    And, on that note, I have a crush on OJ as well.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Gosh, he's a handsome guy. Those backwards baseball cap pics make me sigh :)

    My favorite thing you ever showed about OJ, though, was when he was running through that revolving door as the gingerbread man. I watched it more than once, although I decline to state out loud how many times.

    He's a special one, that OJ :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. A) OJ totally looks like an Indian David Boreanez!

    B) If I can convince my inlaws to evict their renters in their Chicago condo AND convince my husband to leave Ohio and move us, 2 kids, 2 dogs, and 2 cats into an 800 sq ft 2 bedroom condo in downtown Chicago, I'm totally putting myself up for the BFF #2 spot!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Probably the first time ever I regret moving back to Norway in May. I wonder how he feels about marriage disguised as a green card marriage. Either way, you have again accomplished to make my day.

    ReplyDelete
  40. OK, totally random thought. If you started a crafts business, perhaps making candlesticks, and Ryan went into the meat business, then when you guys and OJ hung out, you'd be the butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker. Not sure why I felt the need to share that.

  43. How does he feel about single, sleepy college seniors who like to bake, cook, and eat cooked and baked things? Because yes, he looks exactly like an Indian David Boreanaz. And isn't that the dream? An Angel/Booth who can bake. And reach the top shelf.

  46. Ok, so since I'm married, obviously of the running. But my sister is single and out there looking. Aaaand she lives in Chicago, but we are Cowboys fans, she also sings, cannot climb walls very well (as far as I know), has good table manners so I suppose could teach him if necessary, and one of her favorite restaurants in our hometown was also featured on D,D&D's. So they are totally (if maybe a bit convoluted-ly) perfect for each other! Would that make us BFF's-in-law? How would that work?

  50. This is probably one of my most favorite posts.

    It might be because of the copious pictures of OJ (who, by the by, makes my eyes tingle just to look at--so handsome!).

    Also, does being your best friend mean you get your picture taken as much as OJ? We might need to negotiate.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love that you did this for OJ! It speaks to how much you love him....

    I did it once for one of my guy best friends, too....

    He sure is handsome, and seems well-rounded and normal enough. ;)

    Hope it finds him lucky in love!!!

  52. I totally volunteer!
    Do I count as a cougar if I'm 31 and he's 28?
    I've just got to say he fracking dreamy and I can neither wake board or ski(water or snow)!
    It's hard to not have a crush on a boy that can sing!
    You've left one thing out though! What kind of girl is OJ into?!

  59. Sounds like a dreamboat (looks like one too). If he ever wants to go out with a marathoning 30 year old MBA who loves cheese and waffles (not together...most of the time) when he's in Chicago, you know who to contact.
