Stop Copying Me!

So, Lo Bosworth is totally copying me. Don't act like you don't know who I'm talking about!


The Culprit

First, I noticed that Lo tweeted at Bethenny (Frankel), "I lava it!" referring to Bethenny's show, "Bethenny Getting Married?" Well, guess who's been using "lava" since 2005??? That's right, Millard and myself. Don't believe me? Ask A-mac-a-lac, our other amazing roommate, or check our Facebook wall-to-wall.

Second, Lo just posted on her blog: Obsession of the Week: Friendship Bracelets

http://thelodown.com/style#obsession-of-the-week-friendship-bracelets

Get with the porgam LoLo.. Theresa, Lacey, and I brought the string box back out in 2007. I'd show you the friendship bracelet we made for Colbie Caillat, but T lost the picture!!!

Lo, if you find me on StumbleUpon.com don't be mad at me, after all, you're my favorite Laguna Alum and I lava you. Just don't go calling yourself "JWil."

Famous Followers..

I don't know if anyone has noticed (probably not..) but Mariah Carey AND Brett Favre are following my blog. Don't be confused by their aliases.. Sarah Buss and Katie, respectively.

Have a GREAT weekend!

GUEST BLOG THURSDAY!!

I just created this GUEST BLOG THURSDAY madness! Hopefully it catches on! (Especially with ALL my 6 followers)..

My first guest blog on this inaugural Guest Blog Thursday comes from my totally amaze mother. She's a peach. See below :)

Well as long as you are talking about electronics and people paying attention-- perhaps you can find a few minutes to banter about the amount of time I sit and wait watching my PC while it "installs, initializes, connects, authorizes, saves, transfers, buffers, uploads, downloads -- logs in, logs out, bookmarks, edits and don't forget HELPS me!!!"

Sure, mom, I'll banter.. I just wanted to say banter.

Jessica, as long as I'm on a roll -- how do you feel about turn signals? Cars have them -- I'm sure it's a safety measure and most states require them. On my way to the mall today (VIP), I waited at three intersections for an oncoming car and guess what the driver did as they approached my car? THEY TURNED WITHOUT SIGNALING! What's with that?

I know! It's hard to believe some manufacturers forget to add the turn signal option! Because if it were there, people would use it, right??? One day, I'm going to change the "Welcome to Kentucky" sign from, "Welcome to Kentucky, Where Education Pays" to "Welcome to Kentucky, Land of No Turn Signals." Because NO ONE uses turn signals in Kentucky.




Thanks, mom! You're a natural!

Sup Party People.


I have an e-mail pet peeve.. FIRST, I must share this: My father, so "with it" at times.. told me that we, Generation Y, are actually behind the times.. WHAT??? I know. He said, "kids these days do not have e-mail, do not wear a watch..." and something else.. I can't remember.. "they don't have e-mail because they text and they don't wear watches because they just look at their phones." Well, I'm confident that ONE of those is NOT TRUE.. you HAVE to have an email address to get on Facebook.. Duh..

Ok, so here's my e-mail pet peeve.. using the wrong name.. SERIOUSLY?? If I email you, it comes from jess.wilson@me.com or jess.wilson430@gmail.com OR wilsonjl@nordyne.com. With the exception of the third email address, I think it's pretty easy to tell that my name is NOT Jennifer. And to call me Jennifer in your reply makes me think a couple of things.. 1. You're Rude and 2. You can't read. My work email has a signature, and I'm pretty sure it comes up to you as Jessica L. Wilson.. again, who is Jennifer?? In addition, my school email is/was jessical.wilson@murraystate.edu. I can't tell you how many times I got a response from a professor (they generally have a PHD, right?) that read, "Dear Jessical".. HONESTLY!

Also, I feel I would get annoyed if my name were David, and I went by Dave.. and my signature said Dave and I ended emails with, "Love, Dave" and people still replied to me with "Dear David".. I'm out of breath.

Can e-mails be set up so that when you reply it automatically inserts "Dear" and that person's WRONG name??

PAY ATTENTION PEOPLE!

PS I'm bringing back "Sup."

Tweet. Tweet.

Hop on the TWITTER train people. It rocks!

I follow Landon Donovan, Lo Bosworth, Chris Harrison, Paula Creamer, the Kardashians, Mike Juenger, Donald Jupp, etc. I feel like I'm their BFF and they're talking to me. It doesn't get as hairy as facebook and it's way less time consuming.

Get to it. Follow me @Jwil18

When I was little, they were called "Leggins."

I think they're actually called "Leggings".. I wore them when I was little.. like before middle school. I'm pretty sure I had a white pair, with lace at the ankles.. then I probably put on ruffle-y socks and my Keds. I have no idea what I wore on top.. Mom?? Regardless, totally appropriate for a child in the 90s.

But what about now?? Apparently they are making a comeback, or have made a comeback and are sticking around. I, for one, only care when I see some chick who totally missed the "What Not to Wear: Leggings" episode. Like one of our summer interns.. she wears leggings everyday.. What planet is she from!? If it were me, I'd be wearing suits and pantyhose everyday.. something that says.. gee, I don't know, "HIRE ME!" Fool.

Once, I texted my boyfriend, "I think I'm going to buy some leggings." His response, "Why?" I'm not totally sure what he meant by this.. but I definitely interpreted it as "Why would you do that? Leggings are stupid and a waste of your money." Thanks, babe.

I don't understand the whole blue jean mini skirt/leggings phenomenon.. it's sort of like the blue jean mini and UGGS thing.. What kind of weather is it when you wear a mini skirt and shearling boots?? Is that same weather that calls for a denim mini and leggings?

Let's take a look.



Is that LiLo? I hate all of these outfits.

 And ripped leggings?? Seriously, Nordstrom? You're selling these! There is only one reason to hop on this crazy train.. you've suffered a terrible run in your favorite pair of tights. Otherwise, these belong in the trash.



Too much partyin' in the USA.

Kourt and Bethenny totally do leggings right.. If my favorite intern wore her leggings like this, I might actually consider talking to her.


These two are adorable! Remove the bellies and you still have two totally fabulous outfits.

To all my friends that wear leggings: I love you, I just don't love your leggings.

Tiger, Tiger Woods Ya'll

That's the ONLY time you'll ever see "Ya'll" associated with me. (When it's preceded by "Tiger, Tiger Woods..")

Ok Golf Fans..

Who's your favorite golfer?? Never mind, I don't want to know, I just want to talk about MY FAVORITE.. Tiger Woods.

I don't care about his personal life, his shattered image, his potty mouth, his bad body language..

How about he is still favored 8-1 to win this week's PGA Championship at Whistling Straits. Go ahead, tell me how bad he played at Firestone.. Betcha $100 I already know.. Are you aware of anyone who played WORSE than Tiger on Sunday?? I am.. He's left handed. STILL the world No. 2.. Last name starts with "M" ends with "ickelson."

Personally, the only thing Tiger Wood's doesn't have going for him is his goatee.. I haven't liked facial hair since D2: The Mighty Ducks.

I'm just going to quote my second favorite golfer, Padraig Harrington, "It would be a very naive and very foolish man who writes Tiger Woods off." High-five, Paddy.

Plus, I just bet a co-worker lunch that Tiger Woods would finish in the Top 10.


And he's even wearing green.. last time I checked, that's my favorite color.

3 Things I can't have too many of...

1. Bobbi Pins
2. Chap sticks
3. Pens

Speaking of Bobbi Pins.. most hair accessories are a necessity in abundance.. With some guidance from my friend and fashion guru, Jaclyn, these headbands are FAB! Buy them in every size and color. If I see you wearing them with pieces of hair strategically placed in front of your face (LAUREN CONRAD), I will slap you.

Here is one by "Scunci"



And a 3-piece by "Studio 35"

I've seen all of the above at Target and Walgreens. Jac had white ones, haven't seen those yet.. If you see them, get me some.
