13 Things About Dane Bramage
13 Things about Me Beggining with J


I have seen a lot of Thursday Thirteens about descriptive words beginning with the same letter. I decided to do one using the letter J. I don't know why I chose J. But I did.

  1. jannock* This is me to a tee.

  2. jeremiad Some of my posts are this, especially when I am upset about the direction America is headed.

  3. jocose My mood most of the time.

  4. jolterhead Most of the people I deal with daily.

  5. joss** Don't believe in it.

  6. jink I have discovered to my chagrin that I can no longer do this due to size and age.

  7. jiffy The time frame people want things done by me but never for me.

  8. jettatura* I get this from liberals all the time.

  9. jejune How I find most of television especially reality shows

  10. jentacular* I have been avoiding items of this nature which is wrong since they are the most important of the day.

  11. jacobin What I try to expose and combat. The raison d'etre of Dane Bramage.

  12. jejunator* I am one from time to time. For spiritual reasons.

  13. jacent This is me in the morning. Not a morning person

Well in case you haven't guessed it, I used some pretty uncommon and unusual words. Hopfully with my dictionary widget you can double click on the word and the definition pops up in another window. Words denoted with * are not found in that dictionary however. The word joss is but the definition does not apply to me. You can find all the J words and their definitions here.
