Situation Sunday

Situation #1
You are all alone on a deserted road, far from home. Say 20 miles from home- you see a zombie. What do you do?

Run, as far as I can possibly go, until I can find a place where I can get some fire, so I can light him on fire. If I remember correctly they don't like fire.

Situation #2
You are out shopping in a mall. You have purchased numerous items through-out the whole day. You have bags of purchases. In one store you are accused of stealing merchandise. Hunt as you may you can not locate a sales receipt for the purchase.....you are about to be arrested. What do you do.

I would say, prove that I stole the items from these stores, they have to prove that I stole them with witness' and survelliance videos. Then put my bags down and dump my purse out and find those receipts too.

Situation #3
You are swimming out in the ocean. You are about a mile from the shore. All those in your group are on the beach playing volley ball. You notice dorsal fins between you and the beach. No life guard is present. Scream and you might call attention by the wrong thing.....What do you do.

first of all, I wouldn't be swimming a mile out into the ocean, but if I was, I'd probably try to swim towards the shores in the opposite direction of the fins. And always keep my eyes on those fins as I was doing so.

Sunday Serenity #6

Something that brings me serenity, Is when I cook for someone else. Making them a meal, that I fashioned with my own hands gives me a chance to show someone that I love them. Not only that, the feel of the knife in my hands while I am chopping, I don’t know the rhythm, the action, the whole shebang just calms me. The process of cooking, working in the kitchen, cleaning up, and having a rewarding meal is what brings me peace of mind.

My Life In Pictures

I thought I would post a blog of some pictures that I took before my camera decided to break down... I loved my camera, I spent good money on it, and now it is gone... I had fun taking all sorts of pictures with it, it brought out my creative side... I had to borrow money when I was having a predicament, and so I gave this camera for colleteral, and I just got it back two months ago, and not long after I got it back, the pictures started having lines go through it and just acting up. Now it is fully gone, dead to be exact. It will cost more to fix it then what the camera orginally cost me, so I just threw it away. I will someday get me another one... Enjoy the pictures...

Me...After losing 100 pounds, I still have more to go...

Letty, Amber Dawn, and Me in highschool. Amber sent this to me, so it was odd seeing myself so young again...

Amber May and I, seeing each other after not for 12 years. She was the first friend that I made when I moved to Longview Washington when I was 13... She is awesome. She made me feel good about myself, when she made the comment, still the same old blunt Jamie. she is a wonderful friend and I'm glad we reconnected... She is a sheriff in Vancouver, so we can see each other more often.

Amber, her sisters, and Me

Monte and I

All my Amber's. I knew two of them from highschool, the third one I met and they are all just awesome...

Amber and I

Pretty flowers


My Tomotoe Plant

The clouds of a beautiful evening in Vancouver

A Rose from the yard of my apartments.

My Season

You Are Fall!

Mean Dreads

I’ve been a funk for awhile, something needs to change. Like the line in Breakfast In Tiffany’s where Holly is talking about the mean dreads, it Isn’t exactly depression, it is something and you don’t know why you’re feeling the way you are. So, she goes to Tiffany’s where they disappear. I need to find something like that for me. Come to find out today, my good friend Amber is in the same spirit. We don’t know exactly, why, it could be an accumulation of a lot of things, for us both. A week ago, we both signed contracts with ourselves with 5 goals we want to accomplish in 3 months. I have started mine and hopefully soon those dreads will go away…

Love Is Based On

It is funny how accurate this blogquiz is.

Your Love is Based on Friendship

For you, chemistry doesn't really happen without compatibility.

Companionship and openness are the most important parts of your relationships.

Whoever you love should be your best friend.

And falling in love with a good friend is never out of the question.

Why your love can last: You only fall for people who you truly understand... and who truly understand you

Why your love can fail: Sometimes you don't admit how important physical chemistry is to you

Tell Tale Heart

I found this cool animation of the Edgar Allan Poe poem. I liked this poem, it was scary. Enjoy.

Your Armor

I've been posting a lot of YouTube videos today. LOL I enjoy Charlotte Martin a lot too, I love this song too.

Bouncing Off Clouds

Bouncing off of clouds is off of Toris' new CD, American Girl Posse. I love the CD, it is awesome, several great songs.


I have loved this song every since the first time I heard it, 3 years ago from an old friend. I love the imagery of her words, religious symbolism, and her fight for herself in the song. I never new their was a video, but the video is just awesome.
Here are the lyrics:
Every finger in the room is pointing at me
I wanna spit in their faces
Then i get affraid what that could bring
I got a bowling ball in my stomach
I got a desert in my mouth
Figures that my courage would choose to sell out now

I've been looking for a savior in these dirty streets
Looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets
I've been raising up my hands
Drive another nail in
Just what god needs
One more victim

Why do we crucify ourselves
Every day i crucify myself
Nothing i do is good enough for you
Crucify myself
Every day i crucify myself
And my heart is sick of being in chains

Got a kick for a dog beggin' for love
I gotta have my suffering
So that i can have my cross
I know a cat named easter
He says will you ever learn
You're just an empty cage girl if you kill the brid

I've been looking for a savior in these dirty streets
Looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets
I've been raising up my hands
Drive another nail in
Got enough guilt to start
My own religion

Why do we crucify ourselves
Every day i crucify myself
Nothing i do is good enough for you
Crucify myself
Every day i crucify myself
And my heart is sick of being in chains

Please be
Save me
I cry

Looking for a savior in these dirty streets
Looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets
I've been raising up my hands
Drive another nail in
Where are those angels
When you need them

Why do we crucify ourselves
Every day i crucify myself
Nothing i do is good enough for you
Crucify myself
Every day i crucify myself
And my heart is sick of being in chains

Why do we change
Crucify ourselves

Never going back again
Crucify myself again
You know
Never going back again to
Crucify myself

Sweet Sacrifice

I really like this song a lot. Now that I have cable internet, I now can watch Youtube and I found this video.

Rambling Update

It's almost 4 AM, Friday morning. I haven't been on in a long time, a few weeks to be exact, I've worried a couple of my on-line buds. Here is an update on my life. I am definately loving my new found freedom in my maroon Toyota Camry. It is a dream, at least to me it is. I only had one repair that I had to get done on it, the starter went out on it, luckily had the right amount left in order to get it fixed. I didn't have a car for a few days, so it sucked. I dyed my hair brown black, which is darker. I'll post pictures to show, I like it a lot better. It makes my eyes pop out. I was nervous having my friend Amber dye my hair, because of the disaster that happened with an old aquaintance of mine. I'm glad I did it and it looks wonderful. My fourth was great. I came down to Longview to see my mom, and I spent the fourth at my cousin Marsha's, who is a fabulous host. I saw Jeremy and his girlfriend Mary and their 4 children, Casey and his girlfriends. And when Carri, Levi, and I walked to the lake we rain into my other nephew Rick and his Wife Jessica, they sat with us. It was a good 15 minutes of fireworks, the best part to me was my family though, the fireworks was not that spactacular to me. I"m not a holiday person, never have been. My family never really celebrated them or made them special, so I don't feel like I"m missing much when I don't celebrate or do anything. I'm happy that others are happy, but that is about it. I'm experiencing some new things with my friendship with Monte, he has a new lady friend, and it is an interesting experience. One I have to learn some more things from and test some of my theories about him. I want to believe was he says about him and I. I don't think I'm going to lose our bond of friendship, it is being tested again. I"m hoping to be back up on the internet soon, in the next couple of weeks. I'm at my friend Ambers. I am driving to Seattle with her and her sister to pick up her boyfriend Mark, who is coming in on a ferry from Canada. I have never met him, but I have heard some good things about him.
