things i just don’t get

When people care too much about their cars. This was an actual conversation I had with a guy friend a few months ago:

“That car is sweet!”. He pointed to some shiny sports car.
“It’s alright, I guess”, I said, disinterestedly.
“What do you mean ‘alright’? That’s 1967mumbojumbosomethingorother Mustang!”.
“It’s not better-looking than my Honda”.
“You’re kidding, right?”

Brad Pitt. Overrated. Just way overrated.


Math.
My brain just doesn’t work that way.

That column  in one of those gossip magazines called, “Stars! They’re just like us!”, where they take shots of celebrities like Gisele Bundchen buying toilet paper at Target (she’s got a bangin’ body, married to a handsome star quarterback, has the sexiest accent and can pretty much get away with never having to work another day in her life and still live comfortably. Yep, she’s just like us!)

People who wait hours in line for [insert designer name here] handbags. Why not just order it online? Or better yet, spend $500 less and buy a handbag at Burlington Coat Factory or a thrift store?

How some women can comfortably walk all day in heels and not want to throw their shoe at someone’s head by the end of the day. I envy you.

    Oh my gosh, I regularly scratch my head at women who charge around London in 9 inch heels and I can barely stand in them! How do they do it? I always think there is something wrong with me? I also don't understand why people camp out to buy the new Apple iphone when they can just go to the store the very next day and stand in an average sized line? These were great Jillian, they gave me a good laugh!

    I am especially with you on math. Thank God for calculators.

  3. jillian m. says:

    Totally agree with you on the iPhone! I mean, why not just wait a few days (or dare I say, a month?) to buy it and not have to camp out for hours in line? Maybe it's secretly fun and we're missing out on something? Who knows?!

    Yes! The TI-89 was a godsend!

    I do NOT get the last one at all. If it's pain for beauty, I'm content being ugly…

    This list is awesome! I hate those "just like us" columns. And guys and their cars – I will never get it.

  8. Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird says:

    hahaha! Love this. I also loathe designer bags. What. a. waste. Yes. Brad is definitely overrated! He's not even as good looking as he used to be!!

    I envy the women that can walk around all day in sky high heels with no pain myself. I feel like they know some secret that they aren't revealing.

    The column is in Us Magazine, and I think it is funny too. Yes, they are exactly like us!

    YES to all of this, particularly those b*tches who glide around in heels all day!

  15. jillian m. says:

    Yes! What's the secret?! How are they walking around so easily in skinny high heels and I'm limping?

  16. jillian m. says:

    Hahah! Lena, you're too funny.

  17. jillian m. says:

    He's definitely not. But you know what? Even when he was younger, he was never all that to me. Now, someone like Ryan Gosling…THAT I get!

    I usually dont get nor do I care about car mumbojumbo, but seeings how I have a black 69 Mustang in my garage, I best not talk to much trash on this topic. Mind you the car is not working, rust, smells, gross. And yet it sits rent free all because it is a "69 Stang" . . . . sometimes I do not understand boys.

  19. classiq says:

    Yes, Brad Pitt is waaay overrated. I had a good laugh at the one with "the stars are just like us". And about those women wearing high heels all day long, I don't think they walk too much in those. It's practically impossible!
    Have a very good weekend, Jillian! xo
