HBO Free Preview Continued -Wrapped Insomnia, Up Next is Next Friday

TV, Movies and Music

This week I learned about 4:20 for the first time. ¬†Yep, I climbed right out from under my rock. ¬†Despite people thinking the contrary, I’m an innocent, shy, introverted, rule follower. ¬†Wolf in sheep’s clothing? ¬†Queen, Drama much?

I just wrapped Insomnia, not as good as I remembered it. ¬†Though that whole idea of 1/2 the year daylight sH!t is for the birds. ¬†Visit Alaska yes, live there never. ¬†“Two types of people live in Alaska. ¬†Those who were born here and those who came here to escape¬†something else. ¬†I wasn’t born here” ¬†Love Maura Tierney – hotel owner¬†with heart of gold or ER nurse (or maybe doctor … or nurse turned doctor?). ¬†In Insomnia, she’s a hotel owner. ¬†Maybe I should move to Alaska?

How did I get here again???? ¬†Belated rabbit hole alert. ¬†Screech … turning the car around. ¬†Continuing the theme of¬†4:20, Next Friday here I go. ¬†So far I am laughing at the totally inappropriateness of this movie. Don’t judge me, I’m letting off steam with my new-found free time aka¬†Losing Time.

As always, more to come.

Losing Time

Life

I’m losing time. Not literally. Thank goodness. 

I thought I had an appointment for my roots this morning.  I was already dressed and ready to go when it hit me “Jill your appointment is not until next Saturday!”   Then I made Billy Bob look at the appointment card. 

“Tell me what date do you see?”    

“4/29 … 9:30”

“And today is?”

“4/22 … 8:25”

That’s what I mean by losing time.  In actuality I’m gaining time because I have a whole extra week that I didn’t realize I had until this moment. Wahoo!   Now the only question is what to do?  

Should I …

Climb back into bed? Aaaahhh.  Sweet sleep but I’m not tired.  

Clean house? What a waste of found time!

Watch more HBO free preview weekend? Yaaasss.  At least for now. 

But first back into my pajamas.  Later I’m going to the Southwest crafts center for a pre fiesta event.  

Happy Saturday, Earth Day, 422 not 420 or 429. Have a great day y’all. 

As always, more to come.

The Follow Ups Continue 

Aftermath of the 2014 Fall

Originally posted on FB, April 22, 2014. 

Billy’s appointments went well today.  He goes back 4/28 (wrist) and then 5/6 for (nose). I assumed incorrectly the nose would be done today but they will check his nose one more time before releasing him. He said enough with the photos so no unveiling of the new nose … which he claims is the old nose. Which does look surprisingly the same if not just a little off center.  

I was in the room with him.  Removal of the drain tubes, stitches and internal splints were pretty gross re-confirming I could never be a nurse. I once thought I could (to be exactly like my Aunt Jo) but again I am reminded that the heart may be in it but the rest of the body has to be there too. Happy Tuesday!!!!!!

As always more to come. 

HBO Free Preview Weekend

TV, Movies and Music

Finally watching Joy. A movie with the hunger games chick,  Bobby de Niro and Bradley Cooper.  I mean come on. Is this a recycled Silverlining’s playbook or what? I know I know different storyline but still.  And supposedly based on a true story. Those I really like.   And the more struggle, the better.  The theme should be: Life is messy, clean it up.  

As always, more to come. 

I Jinxed Myself

Things I've Overheard

Ever since I added this category, I have not overheard anything juicy.  I knew it!  I jinxed myself.  Crap!  And I had such high hopes for this section.  Oh well, I am leaving the category open for future use.  Just in case.  I think my luck might turn anyway. Superstitious Jill has said some incantations. Ohm, Ohm, Ohm.  Oh Monty Python!  :).

C’mon … say something stupid people. ¬†Jilly needs something to weave. ¬†I need to write about you behind your back. ¬†Lol! ¬†Reminds me of a friend who when someone would walk up as we were having a conversation and ask “hey what’s up?” She’d quickly reply without a second thought “we were talking about YOU!” And the person never really knew was it bad or good? ¬†Was it you or is it me? ¬†Yep, it was always you! We were talking about YOU! ¬†Ugh,¬†As if (said in my best Alicia Silverstone voice over voice).

As always, more to come.

Another Two Sing Along Songs for April 21, 2017

Sing Along Song Of The Day ūüé§

Anyone remember Fashion Police and who wore it best? ¬†Hosted by Miss Joan Rivers! ¬†Helluva woman. ¬†Well in this installment of sing along song of the day, we’ll do a who sung it best? ¬†Or it is who sang it best? Dang Grammar Police. ¬†Now I have to google this sH!t. Here is the answer. ¬† Now I have to ask, what the hell is an auxiliary verb?? ¬†HAS is for one. ¬†And what the hell is a participle? ¬†Why do participles¬†have to be past, present and perfect? ¬†No one is PERFECT! ¬†Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!! Compulsion is a wonderful thing. ¬†Twitch, twitch, twitch. ¬†How did this post become a grammar lesson? ¬†No idea. ¬†Anyway, back to it. ¬†Who sang or who has sung the song¬†best? The original or the cover band? ¬† You be the judge.

Am I Evil? Diamond Head or Am I Evil? Metallica

As much as I love Metallica, I have to give it up for the ORIGINAL Diamond Head. ¬†Roar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ¬†Am I Evil? Yes I am. ¬†Am I Evil? I am man, yes I am!¬†Now in deep thoughts with Stuart Smalley. ¬†Is man evil? ¬†I’d say falliable yes. ¬†A sinner yes. ¬†But man can be forgiven. ¬†Maybe in some individual cases, man or woMAN is evil. ¬†Not as in whole of huMANkind. ¬†That I refuse to believe.

If this was #SOCS prompt¬†MAN, I’d be golden but man was weeks ago. ¬†HEY it’s Friday! ¬†Duh? ¬†We know Jill, comes after Thursday. ¬†I need to find the prompt for tomorrow. ¬†I’m looking for you Linda G Hill.

As always, more to come.

ūüé∂ For April 21st 2017 ūüé∂

Sing Along Song Of The Day ūüé§

Sublime marathon.  Well maybe not since two songs hardly make a marathon.  More like a musical sprint. 

Santeria and What I Got

Let’s all pop a cap in Sancho shall we?  Just kidding.  I don’t even know the guy.  I wonder if he’s a bastard in the same way Hope is fickle and Life, she’s a bitch.  

The lyrics are deep despite the beat.  These are singalong for sure but if you really listen you might be like me and think … did I really just sing pop a cap in sancho? Well yes yes I did!  And it was on auto pilot. I memorized these words a very long time ago.  

The second song What I Got sort of played out before me.   I passed a bus stop while running errands.  A single rider was sitting on the bench.  Eyes shut tight, face raised to the sunshine.  Rocking back and forth with a grimace on her face.  

Pain. Everywhere one looks. But there was beauty too. In the sunshine.  And I can’t possibly know her story in a two second glimpse.  Still hits me. Makes me think. 

And with that, I am done. And all of you are probably thinking “J-Dub next time just post the songs; we don’t need your spin”. Ha! Have you learned nothing about me in our time together?  LOL.

As always more to come.

Testing

J-Dubs Grin and Bear It

I was online paying bills and I see someone has tried to add an account to use for to/from transfers to an external account I do not recognize.  There’s a triangle with an exclamation point saying signature required to activate. What the what!  We have no external account.  I did not do this.  I ask Billy Bob and he just looks at me, no answer.  I mean really ?!?!  what a question?!?  Him use a computer for anything besides … well besides nothing? Nope.  He does use his phone though, surprisingly.  He checks the weather, watches YouTube clips and sports videos.

Anyway, I call and right away the rep gets to work on deciphering what happened.  As she is checking around she says WOW!  I have seen some checking accounts that have been open for a while but you, you’ve had this account longer than I’ve been alive. Ma’am thank you for your…

I¬†was online¬†paying bills and I see someone has tried to add an account to use for to/from transfers to an external account¬†I do not recognize. ¬†There’s a triangle with an exclamation point saying signature required to activate. What the what! ¬†We have no external account. ¬†I did not do this. ¬†I ask Billy Bob and he just looks at me, no answer. ¬†I mean really ?!?! ¬†what a question?!? ¬†Him use a computer for anything besides … well besides nothing? Nope. ¬†He does use his phone though, surprisingly. ¬†He checks the weather, watches YouTube clips and sports videos.

Anyway, I call and right away the rep gets to work on deciphering what happened. ¬†As she is checking around she says WOW! ¬†I have seen some checking accounts that have been open for a while but you, you’ve had this account longer than I’ve been alive. Ma’am thank you for your membership, that is awesome!!

Doh! But I laughed out loud because it is awesome. ¬†And I am old. ¬†The year was 1984 baby! ¬†We were just starting out. ¬†Two American kids doing the best that they can. ¬†Wait that’s John Cougar Mellencamp’s Jack and Diane, not J-Dub and Big B.

Anyway, yep 1984 is also the George Orwell novel. ¬†A dystopian story that¬†I read in 7th grade for a book report as my friend for life LAB read Charlotte’s Web. ¬†Her brother comes home to find us camped in her living room working on our reports. ¬†He says “are you kidding me LA? Jill is writing her book report in something¬†I read in college and you are using a 3rd grade primer” ¬†She said something smart ass and he left us alone. ¬†Funny what one remembers. ¬†Her brother is Brad … like the brother Brad from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. ¬†And now I have a visual of Phoebe Cates in a red bikini being watched by someone who works at Long John Silvers :). ¬†How is this for stream of consciousness people?!?? ¬†LOL!

Anyway, the rep who is younger than my checking account¬†got us all fixed up. ¬†Account is on hold for 3 days as Fraud does their thing. ¬†It’s likely nothing but better safe than sorry.

As always, more to come.
