Fake-Like-You-Care-About-Me Week, Day 1

My least favorite pictures are those of people lifting weights IN JEANS. I think the people that show up at the gym in jeans are whacked out, but they don’t make me laugh like the pictures of people running in jeans. Really, if you’ve seen one dude bench pressing in jeans, haven’t you seen a hundred?

In my attempt to  make the next week of posts more interesting (for me, not you), I’m adding a bit of information about me in each post. Of course you don’t care about me and I’m not that interesting by any means, but I need some way to motivate me to get these pictures off my desktop. So along with enjoying the jean-wearing photos, I would appreciate it if you would fake it like you are interested in me. Thanks.

So for the next week, you’ll see a weight lifting IN JEANS picture, a random question from those blogging chain letters “awards,” and then a picture from my childhood.


What is the one word that best describes you?

Happy. Jill = happiest person you know. Without a doubt, I am a glass-is-half-full person and can somehow tend to notice and focus on the positive sides of most everything. I can count the bad days I’ve had in the past decade on two fingers. Cranky? Irritable? Bitchy? Never. So before you think I’m one of those people that walks around with a stupid grin on my face saying “Happy Monday” to everyone, stop right there – I too want to punch those people in the face.

The story behind this picture is that my mom sent my dad to the store to buy a dining room table. That is me on top of the POOL TABLE that my dad returned home with that day – yep, it sat in the middle of the dining room of my childhood home for who-knows-how-long. Classy! And before you start looking at gold curtains and wicker lamp tables trying to figure out the year and thus my age, you can (again) stop right there – focus your attention on my cuteness instead.

  1. Shoot. Now you made me forget what I needed to get online for. But thanks for the smile 🙂

  2. Totally adorables :). I love your witty sense of humor, made me smile

  3. Thank God you’re not one of those people who say things like Happy Monday. And I suspect you are not one of those people who say things like, “Do you have a case of the Mondays?” 🙂

  4. Dude is lifting 100 pounds in each hand. Must be special load bearing jeans.

  5. Am I wrong to say that I think your dad bringing home a pool table instead of a dining table is hi-freaking-larious?

  6. I’m psyched that you’re revealing a little more about yourself. I’m faking that I care about weight lifters in jeans this week. 🙂 Because you’re right, they’re everywhere; what’s with that being acceptable?
