I'm going to be very busy this weekend.....
Not "ripping up linoleum floors" busy.....

this had included a trip to Toronto to get fancy fabric, but now I think I may be stuck with ghetto-JoAnns......

But I am determined to achieve something.....Only two weeks to go after all.........

I need a new job...

Yesterday I was in the ladies room at work.

It's a one person bathroom and since I'm the only girl it is pretty much my own private loo (oh the glamorous life I lead)...

Anyways, I'm minding my own business when all of a sudden I see something scurry under the door out of the corner of my eye.

It was a giant spider!!!! Huge and Black and hairy...... and headed straight towards me....

I was frozen with fear.

Ahhh , I hate spiders!

So, of course I scream, and a couple of the guys come running to the door.

"Jill, are you all right?"

No, I say.... huge spider!!!!

I hear more rustling outside the door,

Now I realize that I am making a scene, and that I need to grow up.

I brace myself for an attack and leap with all my might over the spider, slamming into the door on the other side.

I throw the door open and rush out.

.......Big mistake, oh boy did the guys laugh...... they kicked around the spider for a little while and teased me endlessly....

It's okay though, because I've been told it's dead. (Bloody Right...that'll teach it to mess!)

So since then I have been totally on edge, expecting to find something creepy-crawly and all up in my business.

Today, as I'm leaving the fax machine I spot something creeping by my desk...

It looked like a large black spot, so decided to be a big girl and inspect before I jump to conclusions.

.....I slowly approach the spot......closer and movement....closer, closer......'s like a huge black cockroach, and it leaps into the air only inches from my face.....

I scream and jump back....and all the expected nonsense.....

And my coworkers laugh and joke and tease....

And all I can think is how in the heck did a Grasshopper (that was no grasshopper I had ever seen).... get to be right smack dab below my desk?......


I suspect Foul Play......

So many things are exciting right now:


While I am so very bored at work, I get to play Serge Gainsbourg over and over.....
He's such a sexy that sort of creepy vampire kind of way.

I bought a new mattress set's a double and feels like a giant island sitting in the middle of my room....I do love that it is so tall that I have to take a running leap to get into it.

Also.....I just stumbled upon a website called's an online store that exclusively sells amish & modest's all made to order &'s pretty awesome......I already have a stark black apron on order......I know, you hear amish clothing and yawn or wretch.....but it's actually really minimalist and wearable.... think Imitation of Christ......see.......
I just hope no one sees me sporting a bonnet anytime soon....

So rainy & Sad


My cat Little Bear has been missing for several days now....

He's a cute little thing, even if he's timid beyond belief....

That's what worries me, he's probably so very scared, and now, so very wet too.

It's like that scene from Oliver & Co. (one of the greatest Disney Movies ever) when nobody wanted Oliver & he had to wander in the rain all alone, I cry every time....

My poor kitty, I hope he finds his way home....

2. How "out" are you about having a publicly accessible online journal. Do your friends know? Does your family know? Do your co-workers know? Does your boss know? Do you use your real name? Do you use your real photo?
All my friends know....most of them have journals themself, my family doesn't really know, I don't think that they'd really be interested. I generally prefer that my coworkers and boss know as little about me as possible so they do not know.....
I use real photos

3. How many epeeps have you met real life?

4. How has estrip changed the way that you meet people, on and/or off line?
I have met lots of people that i otherwise might not have.....I also find myself more interested in meeting (e:strip) folk, as I can put a face to the name......

Not much, other than some unfortunate pictures....
Oh, and I was introduced to my boyfriend by someone I met while advertising for (e:strip)......

Nope, to advanced for me

1. In what way has estrip changed your Internet surfings habits? Describe the amount of time you spend on estrip, when you use it and about how long?
(E:strip) gives me something to do while I'm at work.....I mean other than actually working. I usually read everyon's journals and occasionally update

1a. How many journals do you usually read per day?
I usually read everyone's journal at least twice a week

2. In what ways has estrip changed the way you perceive your local community?
In a lot of ways it has made this area seem smaller, because I'm always spotting (e:strip)pers, but in other ways it seems bigger because new people are always popping up

It hasn't really affected my Free Time, my Work Time is definitely less productive

Yeah, I'd say that I def. keep an eye out for funny events.

Writing in an online journal is completely different from writing say, a letter or something.. so , no.

7. Do you have other online journals? If so, with what service and has estrip affected your usage of that journal?

I am stealth like a fox....

Western shirts are terrific.....

they really are,

be it humdrum plaid or rhinestone flowers....

I'm starting a little collection....

I've found that certain thrift stores periodically have them in abundance,

however, I will not release their names lest you plunder my source.

I'm so drawn to their colors and featherweight fabric.....

They beg to be cut up and given new lives as dresses or bags.

......and speaking of all things western.... has anyone ridden our nations only Buckin' Buffalo yet?

I think I have it in me to conquer that beast.....
....or at least hurt myself real bad....

Lookin' all Disney


I started to sketch a picture of Mike and I on our "chalking rampage" but by the time I had finished with Mike's head I realized that it really din't look that much like him...
but it did sort of look like him... fact it looks exactly like the kid who would be picked to play him if our lives were a show on the Disney Channel....

.... so I drew my Disney Channel equivalent as well....

Look at us all big-headed and smiley.....

Those Even-Stevens' don't stand a chance....

El Jumparino


My mom first fell in love with my dad because she thought he looked like Paul Newman....

I wonder how many kids my age can say the same thing....probably everyone whose dad had curly, blond hair and blue eyes....

Paul Newman was such a stud......but I digress

When my dad was in middle school his #1 desire was to be called "Jumper" by his friends........ I know, coolest nickname ever......but it never stuck.

Sometimes, amongst the privacy of family my dad will do his "Chiquita Bannana" dance, which involves akwardly lunging from side to side while carefully balancing a pair of underwear on his head....

He loves Gordon Lightfoot... in fact for several years our family cd player mysteriously refused to play cds by any artists other than the much revered Gordo.

I have this very vivid memory of my dad making every member of my family march up to bed according to the month in which we were born, acting out the month as we saw fit. dad denies ever having done this but I remember quite distinctly seeing him beat his chest and scratch his chest....howling "ape..ape..april"

Happy Birthday Dad !!
(even though he won't read this I thought I would just send out the happy birthday vibes in as many ways as possible.)
