Our wily commenters noticed today that Jackles, in a post about how she spent her three-day vacation, boasts about the pretty heart she drew in the sand (CORRECTION: She did not write `while away.' She just implied it). There is just one minor problem. The photo is time-stamped Feb. 12, 2007 -- exactly when she was on the lovely Caribbean island of St. Barts, known for its sandy white coral beaches.
Here is today's blog post about her rejuvenating "beach" vacation:
What I Did on My Three Day Vacation
I swam and read and hiked and sat in the sun and watched bad movies after dinner and called my mom for marathon phone conversations and slept at least 9 hours each night and went out to eat every evening and savored (small portions of) incredible desserts and still lost four pounds!
What I Didn’t Do
Open my laptop for 72 hours
Go on the internet
Take any photographs of myself
In other words: it was perfect.
I don’t know why I waited so long to do this. Just having that uninterrupted time to focus on relaxation and health and sleep was worth far more than a dozen multi-tasking trips/”vacations” or afternoons/Sundays off or whatever.
I came back rested, feeling better about my body and my health than I have in a long, long time.
The other conculsion I came to? I need a lot more time off this whole internet thing.
Not sure how this will play out, but let’s just put it this way: I can say with assurance that the relaxation and balance I experienced over this trip wouldn’t have been possible had I been checking my email.
(I’m very proud of the heart I drew in the photo above.)
I guess one of the ways in which Jackles doesn't really want to reinvent herself after her time away to reflect on her life is to STOP LYING.
Notice too, fellow DonkeyGate conspiracy theorists, how very much the above beach photo resembles the beach in this photo, taken by Jackles at the same time -- February 2007. And by resembles, I mean it's the exact same beach.
