Jill: We are Lillian and Jillian; best friends and roommates.

Lill: We are also those two girls who live down the hall from you – one of which may be sleeping with your husband/boyfriend, the other most definitely after your job.

Jill: We met at university.

Lill: A rather unremarkable story we’ll no doubt share on a slow day – but we managed to remain friends by not having a) slept with the other’s present or previous boyfriends, b) relayed any information consisting of actual truth to the other’s parents, and c) provided on demand food/shopping/spa therapy even when money was tight and options consisted of a pack of gum/the nifty brown bag it came in/and a bubble bath.

Jill: We share an apartment in a city like yours and have junior level positions at medium sized companies making our combined student debt payable by 2020.

Lill: We have no pets, unless you count the pigeons nesting on my windowsill…

Jill: *Raises eyebrow* …Or the guy on the fourth floor who stalks us when we do laundry.

Lill: We both enjoy chick-lit in its various forms but occasionally attempt to read something more substantial; I suspect this is why Jill keeps renewing her subscription to National Geographic and why I am still on Folio’s circulation list.

Jill: We are Whovians, Trekkies and closet Jedi – though I’m sure the Sith would welcome Lillian with open hoods.

Lill: Our raison d’être: This blog is our small way of capturing the trivial moments of thought and expression that make us smile; the often-times ridiculous way we see the world and how we live in it. The statement we attempt to convey is a modest one, by making the seemingly mundane memorable.

Jill: Our sometimes true entries are based largely upon actual events and in many cases relayed verbatim – and although our objective is to amuse, tickle and charm our readers, we promise to leave quality cleverness and wit to the real thinkers and bloggers out there.

Lill: Our entries are all about comic-style dialogue – as neither Jill or I draw well enough to be featured anywhere but cave walls, until we find a friend with a talented stylus (heh, and not Jill’s ex), you’ll have to leave the imagery to your imaginations.

Jill: And so whether you’re just dropping by or chilling with us regularly, we ask that you try to think well of us despite our propensity for drinking saccharine-laden alcoholic beverages, affection for 90′s boy-bands, and sometimes inappropriateness – we promise we don’t bite…unless you’re that Boy Scout stripper from Stacey’s Bachelorette party – then all bets are off…

    Dear Lill & Jill,
    Your conversations bring me much joy during the day! I love the conversations you two have because they remind me of my own conversations with my friends. Keep being witty, sassy and wonderful! 🙂


    • Lovely B: Oh my! How wonderful! It makes us feel all kinds of good to receive your kind and charming words!
      And this is exactly why we capture our banter – we really are two women you know 😉
      Many thanks for your support and encouragement – Lillian has committed to baking you a cake (note that she usually eats whatever she bakes for other people and most of what she bakes isn’t actually edible…still, the thought is there :-)) …Jill

      • Brelatable says:

        Well, I am certainly flattered at the thought of having a cake (edible or not) baked just for me! I have passed along your blog to my closest friends, and I will be sitting at work just reading through the conversations while literally laughing out loud since you capture some hilarious moments. Thank you for sharing all of your words and humor with the world! I absolutely love it! 🙂


      • Cheers B! I’m going to try a ‘cake in a cup’ recipe Jill pulled from Pinterest – it sounds easy but my track record on baking, cooking, boiling water isn’t exactly stellar so we shall see – in any case, I’ll be thinking of you whilst Betty Crockering it up!…L

  2. Brelatable says:

    Lol! Hysterical! I also have a strange phobia of the whole cooking thing. All of those utensils!! Makes me uneasy. When my BF tries to encourage me to try out recipes, my only defense is accusing him of trying to keep me in the kitchen. Let me know how your baking adventure goes! Perhaps another amazing post will come from it… 🙂

    • Ah yes, I secretly do the same ‘kitchen quarantine’ thing to Jill as she can actually cook.
      Will do! And it would be strange if my baking adventure didn’t end up in a post 😉 …L

    Lill and Jill, I have always loved your gravatar. Who doesn’t want to be them?

    • Absolutely! We’ve said it before – how can you not adore Tony Curtis in drag? Apparently when they were filming, the gents went into a ladies washroom on set to test out their disguises and no one called them out for dudes – not too shabby! …L

    Hi Lill and Jill
    Your blog as well as About me makes me feel like my flatmate who also doubles as my best friend have found their soul sisters….We also met at the university and we also managed to stay friends by not sleeping with the other’s guy (present or historical) and by never relaying any information consisting of truth to the other’s parents. With one already with a Ph.d and the other struggling to complete hers, well, its needless to say we are nerds from the word go! Your conversations are so like ours as are your dilemas….here’s one to all our friendships…please keep posting!!

    • Hear hear! I always say having a Jill around makes life infinitely more fun, interesting, economical, and amusing – so very pleased to hear you have one of your own! Cheers to your lovely comments and to finding us – Jillian will make you both a cake as I have neither the ability to bake well nor the willpower to not eat my inedible creations…L (P.S. PhD’s eh? Hmmm…you’re ‘Smartie’ sisters then…from one Geekess to another I humbly welcome you to our nonsense 😉

  5. All right, got a few good, quick laughs at reading your blogs. So, I’ll bite for awhile. All joy. HF

    Lill and Jill,
    I read the first sentence, then my attention span drifted away. Nice colours, though…
    Le ADHD Clown

    • Merci mille fois Le Clown! And as a fellow sufferer I understand your condition, which is why the About page is the longest post we’ll ever make…wait, what was I talking about? …Lill

    Hi, I’ve nominated you for a ‘Just Kidding’ award: http://markitresearch.wordpress.com/2012/05/03/just-kidding-award/

  8. Nowan Zen says:

    AHEM AHEM……..
    You’ve been given (yes, GIVEN) the prestigious LIVING PASSIONATELY AWARD. Has nothing to do with amorous antics though.

    • *Blush* Well slap my face and call me Sally! Wait – don’t actually slap me and don’t call me Sally…I hate Sally – if you do I’ll eat the fudge we’re going to send you…thanks for the honour and for yet another fabulous shout-out – you sure know how to make us feel special 🙂 …L

  9. Nowan Zen says:

    I’m leaving half with you. I like to share and your lucidity is like sanity….in need of the occasional prop up.

  10. Nowan Zen says:

    Not even the ones I already licked? Shhhh….she’s looking. Act innocent! Okay, that might be a stretch. Act natural! Not the monkey laughing “natural.” Act normal. OH I GIVE UP!

  11. Nowan Zen says:

    by the by, you’ve been nominated for the SUNSHINE Award. Please saunter over to http://notlostjustweird.com/2012/05/23/im-feeling-sexy/ to claim your prize.

    There’s also a TIP jar on the counter……no touching!!!

    • Seriously?! Because of my recent acquisitions we will be living on ramen noodles in candlelight and you want a tip?! Pfft…you can have some noodles…and that’s it…(oh and thank you btw 😀 We do think you are quite excellent)…Jill

  12. Nowan Zen says:

    A tip would be nice BUT I would never wish to deprive calves from looking their best. It would be rude of me to arrive with such news empty handed…where should I put the ribs and beer?

    • Lol, as far away from Lillian as possible. She’s always been that fun person who pulls a chair up to a snack table and proceeds to clear each offering before most have had any (I now encourage her to bring her own snacks to gatherings)…Jill

  13. cirtnecce says:

    For all the funny banter and serious girl problems to absolutely bizzare funny moments, I have nominated the two of your for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award! (http://madcaphat.wordpress.com/) Keep shining always!

    I love your blog so much! It’s hilarious. I’m so glad I found and I can’t wait to follow along 🙂
