(10:55:05 AM) the other J: if this is true, I have the utmost respect for the poster:
(10:55:10 AM) the other J: “I’ve actually had a black bear charge me in Washington State. I already knew about standing still and was sure to avert my eyes. The bear actually stopped the charge a few feet away from me and sniffed me. I didn’t wave my arms as the article suggested, nor did I speak in a monotone. I remained motionless and quiet. The bear grunted a few times, bounced it’s front legs up and down a few times, but eventually left without ever touching me.”
(10:55:46 AM) the other J: I would have been a bulbering, urine soaked messed
(10:55:47 AM) the other J: mess*
(10:56:15 AM) J: ew
(10:57:02 AM) the other J: I’m sorry hon, a bear charges me, I can’t guarantee bladder or emotion control
(10:57:10 AM) J: lol
(10:57:27 AM) the other J: Though, I will do my best to remain stoic, odds are I’m grabbing you, throwing you at the bear and running
(10:57:46 AM) J: which is when i kick you in your bad knee
(10:58:00 AM) the other J: So… it’s a race to see who can disable who first?
(10:58:38 AM) J: exactly

This will end up with us both in pain on the ground being mauled by a bear

mutant babies and two week notices


Ok, A.) Who emails a 2.5mb photo. Jesus.
B.) When we have a “favorite” photo of our kid, lets try to pick one where the kid doesn’t look like a mutant.

I love him.

So… been hiking, but computer power supply crapped out and is on order so i havent felt like posting any pictures.

July 17th was our anniversary. We took a three day weekend in which there was hiking, pizza, icecream, car fixing and a sprained ankle. Hiking was awesome. As was a guilt free- diet free- weekend. My car no longer sounds like it will explode when you go over 30mph. J – sprained his ankle comming down from the mountain. Daniel Boon Scout Trail Amazingly not on the ladders or the ropes before or after the ladders. This meant saturday we stayed in bed watching deadliest catch and were only mildly prodcutive. Sunday, we were a little more productive – went and got groceries… but it was a nice lazy weekend.

We saw X-files this friday. I thought that had been put off for another weekend because we had to go to the gym and i had to work this saturday. Nope… we ended up showering early and then he told me to get dressed – because i was goign to put on Pjs… So late night x-files was great. No hiking this weekend.

as of July 31st I’m officially done with my job. I start student teaching August 11th. We move August 7-10th. Think of how much fun that will be. At least i get a week off of work to pack and move before havign to go back to work… even better i get labor day off.

I’m hungry



so.. i saw pictures of myself from… two years ago maybe… i’ve gained alot of weight… from what i can tell.. 20ish lbs… which for little me is alot. I’ve been trying for the last couple months to loose 10 or so… no. no.. may be 2.
Work is frustrating, but that isnt anything new.
School is good. I finally have a school to go to this fall. I start on 8/11. I am excited about that. At least i’ll be more active than this desk job and possibly will help with problem number 1.

Right now i have a million things to do and really i dont want to do anything.

Is it time to go home yet?
