Kill Jill’s Awesome Thing Of The Week: Drinking on a Sunday Night

Posted in Awesome Things on October 23, 2009 by Jill

First of all, I in no way encourage or condone drinking on school nights. I generally discourage it. School should be your #1 concern while at school. You’re paying a lot of money to be there so you shouldn’t blow it by getting wasted all the time, particularly during the week. it’s just not a smart idea.

But if, say, you’re hanging out with friends and your friend keeps buying you sex on the beach shooters, who are you to say “No thank you.”?? Pfft. Not going to lie, Sunday night was super fun and totally worth it.

With that being said, they key to drinking on a Sunday night? Lots of water and a Motrin before bed. I felt great when I woke up for school at 7 a.m. the next morning!

Kill Jill’s Awesome Thing Of The Week: Simon Pegg

Posted in Awesome Things on October 16, 2009 by Jill

If I’m not mistaken, I’m mentioned my love of Simon Pegg on this blog before. But I’ll say it again, just in case it didn’t quite sink in last time.


I love this guy. I’ve watched several of his movies in the past week. My pal Jacko pointed out that he really is a very good actor, especially in his eyes. And she’s right. I’d still say Shaun of the Dead is my favorite Simon Pegg film though. Ooooohers.

Kill Jill’s Awesome Thing Of The Week: Wearing a Tie Around Your Head

This video is one of my distractions I now have in class. (Warning: this video includes the fudge-word. But it’s said in a silly English accent so it doesn’t actually count as profanity.)

Kill Jill’s Awesome Thing Of The Week: Taking Woodstock

Posted in Awesome Things, Videos, Web on September 26, 2009 by Jill

Saw this movie tonight. Strangely enough, our lecture (in Spin & Manipulation class) today was on the 1960’s. And this was such a fab movie. Not only did it star the wonderful Demetri Martin (God, I love him so much), it was simply just… really great. Full of win, as the kids say.

Kill Jill’s Awesome Thing Of The Week: Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Invited 2 friends over for chocolate chip pancakes and it was so much fun. And they were so delicious.


Why it’s legal for pancakes to be without chocolate chips, I’m not sure.

Kill Jill’s Awesome Thing Of The Week: Live Music!

Posted in Awesome Things on September 11, 2009 by Jill

I went to an incredible rock show last night. City X, you do so impress me sometimes. One of my very fav artists came to town and really did a bang-up job.

(This is Death Cab For Cutie. This is not the band I saw last night. But someday…)

And by “bang-up,” I mean that my ear drums will never, ever, ever be the same. This is the sacrifice I made so I could be at the front of the crowd, clinging to the gate fence for dear life.

But it was worth it.

And I’m going to another live music thing tonight. A much smaller venue, a much lesser-known band. But again, I’m so pumped!

Yup, the day has come. Well. Kinda. I’m leaving here tomorrow around noon- that is the plan anyway. I have roughly 25 hours left.

And I have yet to start packing.


Have a great weekend everyone!
