WE'VE ALL DONE IT

I was once eating al fresco in Spain when an Elvis impersonator sat behind me. I was so amused by his appearance that I made my friend take a photo of him by pretending she was really capturing me enjoying my taco. I think a similar thing has happened here only it's a lot better than me, my taco and Elvis. Only problem is, Jake has clocked them at it! He's a wily one that Jake Gyllenhaal; never misses a trick! I guess it comes from all those years of being stalked.

What are pink and yellow for? I'm afraid I can't keep track of these things!

Nice pic, LOVE those arms!

Oh, not fair! I want to be casually standing next to Jake in a large crowd! I would have to say something to him, though, because I'm shameless like that.

Hey, I just discovered this blog and THANK YOU...it's nice to know I'm not the only one who has to be aware of sweet Jake's activities every single day lest I shall go into withdrawal. I, too, feel the need to stalk and though I am slowly approaching the end of my 20s, I fear my addiction will only get worse, not better. :) But I can live with that.

So much to address here. Let's get started.
1. What's the deal with our precious Jake? Why is he all tan and SO skinny? Something's looking weird here. Even in his face. Is it just that this is the first color EVER that doesn't flatter him?
2. Clapping?!! Please please please be at the END of a song, not along with it. Don't be one of THOSE people. Please no. Or is this not even a concert?
3. Uhhhhh....where do I go to be in a "crowd" with Jake. Who would then reap my sweet revenge for all the creepy strangers who have "accidentally" had to rub themselves on me in the smash. Sign me up.
4. Yes, he is a clever prey indeed. I must retreat, regroup & reevaluate. And then I will resume the mission, stealthier than ever.

The pink is for breast cancer and the yellow is the LIVE STRONG. (At least typically)

Oh my beloved Jake, why must you tease me so.... I love the bracelets and the smile, and the eyes, and the biceps and the entire Gyllenhaal... if only I had been so close, I would have just up and taken the picture next to him, shamefully flaunting my stalker love for him.

Those are some sexy forearms...

Tankergirl, that looks like a pretty old picture, and I think he's a Kerry/Edwards rally (though there may have been music)

I love that sly little smile, he knows what those girls are up to!

Jake knows he owes his existence & everything he's ever achieved to cameras. He's just magnetically drawn to the lens.

Skinny?Huh?I don't think so.

miffed67 said...

Ahhhhh, thanks anon 9:51! I thought the pink was for breast cancer, but I wasn't sure about the yellow.

cina said...

I'm so jealous of anyone who's ever been in the vicinity of Jake.
And standing next to him during a concert - how do you manage to concentrate on anything else than HIM during the entire show?! I'm just wondering...

Nice arms, nice tan... nice everything. I'm surprised that cap actually fits his supposedly big head! LOL

Chantelle said...

Haha, at first I thought that was Photoshopped...

That looks photoshopped to me.

I best stay away from you in future then! I don't want to be torn limb from limb anytime soon.

But if I was there I would not be sly and childish; I would just go up to him and straight out ask him, "What did you and Peter get up to in that Mexican hotel?" No not really I would do the normal fan-girl type things. But how great would it be to be all cool and not to know who he is, like I could hold that up for more than a second! But just slyly pretending not to notice him and then brushing up against him and touching places....I will shut up now cause I think I have put too much thought into this already!

this totally brought down my day...

DAMN THEM!

miffed67 said...

Speaking of that title, I WISH! I'm the single unluckiest person EVER. I missed Russell Crowe by mere fractions of a second. And this was back when he was HOT. Dammit! I fear I'll never be close enough to Jake to take a sly fangirl pic!

Jesse said...

OMG is that really jake? i dunno... my Jake-dar isnt going off... it looks like him but... i dunno!

mossy said...

Those girls may have scored their Jake-just-happened-to-be-in-the-background shot, but they've also unwittingly won Gurners Of The Year 2006, lol. That's some serious mugging!

Clapping?!! Please please please be at the END of a song, not along with it. Don't be one of THOSE people. Please no. Or is this not even a concert?

lmao! Sadly, I think Jake's just goofy and uninhibited enough to do that, bahahaha. Unfortunate, I know. He looks so damn sweet here, though, the look on his face is priceless.

Anonymous said...

Oooh I wish I was there... I'd have sneaked up behind him and grabbed me a handful of Jakey tushy!!

Smurfeyshmoo said...

I wouldn't have sneaky about it all! It's hard to be sneaky when you grab someone from behind and hogtie them. Not that I know...

lola said...

He has a weird face here. Don't like the picture. Ok, I'm becoming selective, I need beautiful pics to recover from the bike pants trauma. Britpopbaby, I'm sure that picture of you in Spain is fun. You know, it's a typical thing in my country : eat tacos and dress like Elvis.

britpopbaby said...

hogtie them

This phrase is new to me! What's is mean?

Anonymous said...

One ties a hog's hind legs together, Britpopbaby. Usually preparatory to slitting its throat & hanging it upside down. All this drama must happen before hams and bacon can come into existence. Thus, to hog-tie. (Clearly, while you are great at finding campy avatars, you aren't an ardent agriculturalist.)

britpopbaby said...

It must be an American term, I've never heard it before.

miffed67 said...

It must be an American term, I've never heard it before.

I think it is, refers to hobbling hogs (and lambs, goats, calves, etc.) by tying thier legs together, like anon said. Usually prepatory to slaughter and/or branding.

britpopbaby said...

Okay, cool. But please no slaughtering or branding Jake.

miffed67 said...

But please no slaughtering or branding Jake.

Not on your life, honey. I could do with hobbling, tho!

(just for a little while, Jake, I promise you'll like it!)
