Dillards 76: Somewhat successful social media?!?

Recommended Posts

Greendoor

@ Finnlassie - if he's like my brother, he'll spend til he's past that age to feel like he is living.

We both were afraid we would die under 50.

I wonder how many animal crackers the boys are allowed per day 

Are they allowed Diet Pepsi?  

Have they ever revenenced a cheese paper sandwich?  

Will Derick command that Jill remove all meat from her "Walker Creamy Burritos"?  

Dillards... could they become the future Maxwells 2.0?

In other news, I'm so jelly of mason jars and mason jar mugs re: Jill's instagram. They're so expensive here. Impossible to find. I've been drooling over them ever since I got Pinterest 6 years ago and started my wedding board as a single hopeless romantic. :my_angel:

With no offense meant, that’s so weird to me. There’s a reason why they’re associated with “country” decor. Poor rural people couldn’t afford canned goods or glasses, so they drank out of the Mason jars that weren’t currently holding food. My parents would have been horrified if I wanted to use them at my wedding, and my grandparents would have rolled over in their graves.

A box of a dozen jelly or pint jars is around $10 at Meijer, sometimes less. I buy boxes of plastic caps to use after they're opened, and usually end up using them for all kinds of things. 

The mugs are a bit odd to me; pretend jars that probably cost more than the thing they're emulating? But okay.

Yeah, it's gonna be difficult, especially as heart failure kinda runs in the family. I'm already stressing about helping him have a lifestyle that minimises risks, but I don't want to control him. I'm just so worried, because we're very marriage oriented in this relationship, I can't imagine living the rest of my life with someone else. But if he passes in his mid 50s too, I'm already feeling devastated in a way. I feel like my mourning process has more to do with this.

No offense taken. I guess that's sort of the thing though - it's never really been a thing here in Finland. Our association towards (American style) mason jars and so on, largely comes from the romanticised image of them. Country, boho chic, cute, exotic in its own way. Other than seeing it as wedding decor, I've done some digging and found the connection to moonshine.

In any case, I've learnt to recycle and hoard glass jars and containers even though I have NO clue how to make jam or pickle stuff (though I'm learning how to make mustard soon from grandma, so, maybe soon some will be filled...). So I'm saving suitable ones til I get married so I can just use them for flowers. I'm cheap. I wanna be as zero budget as possible and recycle as much as I can.

This makes me remember Derelict & Jill's wedding. And specifically the root bear floats. They're so disgusting, well, root beer in my opinion is just so disgusting. Tastes like carbonated mouthwash.

My mom died when I was 26 and my brother was 31. She had cancer, so she had been sick for about 2-3 years before dying so it wasn't a "surprise". But she still was doing great and doing good and then seemingly overnight was just NOT doing good anymore and kind of rapidly declined. I think I've mentioned this, but she died just three months before my wedding, which really kind of tainted the entire wedding and happiest day ever type of feeling.

Anyway, my brother is kind of emotionally immature and just could not cope with his grief. He turned to being an incredible asshat to me in the days before and following her death. As my parents weren't married, my brother and I were responsible for all the logistical stuff - the cremation, the bank type of stuff, paying off her car/getting her title, etc. Throughout everything we were trying to get done together, he treated me like absolute shit. So in the middle of my personal grief, I had to deal with my brother being a douchebag, and idiots like this woman at the bank who told me i was too young to lose my mom (*eyeroll*). 

I don't think it's okay that my brother acted the way he did towards me, but I understood why it was happening. I don't condone his behavior, but I was able to not take it personally and just kind of stomach his BS for a week or two, because I didn't want to make his grief worse. However, if I saw that he started treating other people badly, I would have 100% told him to cut it out. Unfortunately, because of their patriarchal values, I'm sure even if Jill did/does witness things that Derick does that she doesn't agree with, she would not be able to speak up to him about it.

I love root beer but it's definitely an acquired taste.  A lot of people -including my European born father - think it tastes like toothpaste.  One of the main ingredients is wintergreen.

I've had multiple different types of root beer when I dated a dude from Virginia, and by my Scotland bestie (... who's half American half German, raised in Louisiana) I was introduced to the "good stuff". Don't remember the brand. But it was utterly disgusting. But then again, I love Irn Bru, but a lot of peeps find it disgusting. Dr. Pepper is the same. I hate it so much, but some love it, I don't know people who are "meh" inbetween. Acquired tastes for sure.

I tried Big Red for the first time recently and found it disgusting. I know a lot of people swear by it but for me it was awful. I couldn’t finish the can and gave the rest away.

when I started reading this I thought you were talking about the gum, had no clue there was also a pop with that name. which also reminds me that it's been years since I chewed big red chewing gum.

Ime, many (most?) Europeans do not like root beer. I worked in a job that involved giving out root beer (tourist industry) and could tell the Europeans by their faces after taking the first sip. They'd usually say something like it tastes like medicine/toothpaste and ALWAYS asked about guns. They were also shocked when I would say that I have never had one or fired one before. To be fair though, the town was very western and everyone who actually lived there was packing one or more guns.

That's a lot of very big potatoes.  Hope they are expecting friends for dinner and that's a side dish and not just the main meal for the 4 of them.

My Narssacist sister did exactly the same. She even gave the funeral directors a code for family/friends  to quote if they wanted info for my Dads funeral.  We both organised Mums funeral 4 weeks previously so they knew me equally as well. I had to phone a local vicar ( whom I had met just once at a family christening a year previously), tell her what had happened.  She got in touch with the funeral director to find out Dads funeral date, (as her second in command was scheduled to conduct Dads funeral), then let me know. She could not believe just how badly my sister was behaving. Neither could the funeral directors. 

I'm sending  you huge cyber hugs Front hugs>Duggs.

It’s a nice photo, but how many of us zoomed in to determine what it was?  I also agree with the thoughts on the volume, and hope they were having guests, and it was balanced with something healthier. However, if that was he case, why wouldn’t Jill plate an entire meal and photograph it?

The rest of Jill's meal may have been hot dogs or bbq tuna or something not worthy of a photo. It may be challenging for a busy newer cook to try for more than one 'fancy' recipe at a time. It always was for me.

Awww, I'm sorry you hate rootbeer floats.  That was something I'd fix for my son as a treat during the summer months - he loved rootbeer, he loved vanilla ice cream, and the two together was double the goodness according to him.  I liked them too, because it didn't cost much to buy a six-pack of rootbeer and a pint of good vanilla ice cream.  So easy to make him happy :)

      Went to a writer's group meeting yesterday.  First time I've gone to this group's meetings.  Different from other groups I've participated in - this one was a series of prompts and exercises.  I was in a bit of a mood going in - Father's Day weekend for a recent widow is no laugh matter; several social/annoying things happened at Shabbat service in the morning, and one of our service leaders made a "somebody really should" statement of the writing variety and once I hear someone say "someone really should" I usually can't unsee the idea until I've had a try at it.  We did a word association map for one exercise, then wrote something based on part or all of the word map.  I picked a section of the map that had some references to knives and fancy dress balls to write from.  I'm pretty proud of what I wrote in 15 minutes but it's pretty clear that I was in a "mood."
       
       
      The night of the long knives came and went as a plague on the first born of the land.  Men perfectly healthy went to bed only to be jerked from sleep with knives against their throats.  Here were the leaders of men, thrust against walls at the point of a stiletto, there the young men only following their orders, and over there again the family men who didn't exactly plan to pursue this path but perfectly content where they'd found themselves.  At the end of a blade, deep in the depression years, taking their payslips home at the end of the week feeling they'd done a good job, and a little extra for mother in the kitchen. The years of children, church, and kitchen. The good women. Most of them not owning a fancy pair of shoes or a party dress, for who had time?  The children needed their mothers at home, the men away at work.
      The children of course, were not silent.  Soldiers burst into their homes, dragged their fathers out of bed.  Mothers clutching their husbands, children wailing for their papas. The ones who understood left quietly, reassuring the children on their way out - it's a special exercise, I couldn't know about it beforehand, otherwise I would have told you.  Hush child, I'll be home in a few days. They knew they'd be lucky to make it to the end of the block, of course, but let the children hope for a little bit longer, before all hope fell away and their eyes opened to the hatred their own fathers had taken part in.
      Others didn't understand, resisted and fought against the soldiers who came into their homes.  They'd believed in the banners and flags, they'd stood and cheered, they'd enjoyed seeing fear cross the faces of those who understood.  Now they themselves fought back in fear. Fear of losing their lives for who could possibly know what comes next? Wagner wrote of Valhalla, their wives faithfully attended church; surely there was something to greet them when the heart stopped quivering, trying to pump blood flowing onto floors, and truck beds, and sidewalks.

      Almost lost my little dog Molly today  Thankfully she seems to be ok but the next 24 hours are crucial. My ex husband came home to find her blanket wrapped around her neck real tight and she was just laying on the floor. He got her untangled and the blanket had blood on it and she had pooped and peed (probably so scared while it was happening) She started coughing up blood and her one eye is all bulged out and bloody. He called me and I told him to get her to the nearest emergency vet and I would meet him there. They said she's really lucky to be alive. They said to keep a close eye on her breathing the next 24 hours but after that if she's ok she should be fine. They sent her home with eyedrops and an anti-inflammatory medicine for her little neck. I'm so happy that she is ok but man, my heart is broken just thinking about how terrified my poor little baby was! I really really hope dogs have short memories so she doesn't remember this but even thinking about how she was most likely struggling just breaks my heart. I know she's "just" a dog so this is probably silly to alot of people, I totally get that, but she is my baby. I never had children. Molly is my baby. Everytime I think about how she was probably feeling I just cry. But I'm so glad she's alive.
