12:33 pm - April Fools!
Hello everyone, long time no see. I got an email from Livejournal this morning asking me to stop by and to remind old friends to return. I don't think many of my old Lj friends are here anymore. I am glad they haven't deleted my account though. Nice to look over old posts. Anyway, here's a pic of a me wearing a hat I found. Hopefully I don't have lice now. xxx

I heard LJ was gonna start purging inactive accounts so I thought I'd better post something lest I be purged.

That is all.

I woke up this morning and decided that the last cig in my pack would be the last to gain entry into my lungs. I'm pretty good at quitting smoking. I've done it many times, and it usually sticks for a few years. Anyway, yeah. I want a cigarette but i ain't gonna, news at 11:00.

While puttering around my bedroom today I found my mothers old "Keep on Truckin'" t-shirt from the late 60's. The shirt is still in good condition, but sadly mom's trucking days are over.

Sad Times at Brookdale Mall

Kayla and I went to Brookdale mall yesterday and found it almost completely empty. If I weren't so manly I might have wept. I kept telling Kayla "That's were the pet store was were I got my gerbils in fourth grade! And that's were B. Dalton bookstore was! And that's were the record store was were I bought my fist cassette!" (Iron Maiden's Number of the Beast). Ah, memories. I remember going to Brookdale with my parents when I was just a junior Jamison and watching the birds that flew in through the open windows on the roof and the fountains where people would toss coins.

Kayla went back there with her grandma the next day and took some photographs for school. I haven't seen them yet but in the meantime here's a website called Dumpy Strip Malls talking about Brookdale. If you scroll down you can see some pics but it's actually much more empty than these 2009 pics show.

I have something important to post but I suppose I should wait until Monday since no one is around on the weekend.

It involves Disney.

When I was a little kid my father used to bring me over to my grandmothers house on weekends and one of my favorite things to do over there was play The Mephisto Waltz on her giant organ, not the composition by Franz Listz, but rather the 1971 movie staring Alan Alda who becomes possessed by a dying concert pianist. I'd make a bunch of noise on the keyboard then slowly raise my hands in front of my face and stare at them in horror, just like in the movie.

Golden Girl passes away

Bea Arthur, the tall, deep-voiced actress whose razor-sharp delivery of comedy lines made her a TV star in the hit shows "Maude" and "The Golden Girls" and who won a Tony Award for the musical "Mame," died Saturday. She was 86.

This is the second time Fetch Deliveries has broken our gate, without an apology (they deliver pet food and cat litter, etc). How hard is it to open and close a stupid gate? The first time they broke the latch from slamming it too hard. That was last winter and I couldn't fix it until it warmed up because I had to use wood glue so we had a bent coat hanger holding it closed. I just fixed the latch a couple weeks ago then those bastards ripped it right off the hinges. again with no apology.

Parkway Dental

These are my teeth. I think they look pretty good, except for the two that are missing. I just got back from the dentist and they suggested I stop eating so many sweets (how did they know?) and start flossing regularly. I've been hearing this since I was a kid but I never listen. I love my dentist and everyone that works there. It's a nice calm place and everyone is super nice.

Dear Mr. Jamison,

I love soaps from
Hydra soaps, however, their soaps are always so oversized that I cannot fit them into my soap container, I was wondering if it's ok to melt the soap in the microwave and and change the shape of it, since all I care is the great scent they have.



Hi Pauline!

Many soaps contain metals or metal oxides as colorants.  These metals will cause severe problems in the microwave.  I have not been able to find any information concerning Hydra soaps, so I can't say whether they contain metals.  You might want to contact the manufacturer and ask them if it would be safe to melt their soaps in the microwave.  

On the other side, it will not harm the soap to melt it.  You might want to try grating it or cutting it into small pieces and melting it in a double boiler.  This would be a safe procedure.  This might affect the scent, however.  You might find that it looses some of its strength, or it might even change the scent.  

I'm sorry that I can't be more help to you.  I hope this will at least point you in the right direction.

Have a Great Day!
Mr. Jamison

Bye Bye Bourbon

Christopher kindly tolerating my drunken buffoonery.

I recently read an article in the City Pages about a downtown restaurant called Bradstreet Crafthouse on the first floor of the Graves hotel. One thing that caught my interest was the fact that they mostly use rye whiskey for their drinks. Apparently this was the type of whiskey most popular before the prohibition. If anyone were to mention rye whiskey before this week I usually would have pictured old alcoholic grandpas and grizzled hobos.

On a recent trip to Hennepin Lake Liquor Store I purchased a bottle of Jim Beam rye (80 proof) to satisfy my curiosity. The first thing I noticed was that it didn't give me the "icky-face" upon the first sip of my drink (rye & coke). Since I usually drink bourbon (Jack Danials) that's what I was comparing it to. Jack & Coke has a carmel taste. It's pretty dessert-y whereas the Jim Beam rye had more of a vanilla/sugar cane taste. The true test came when I offered Desiree a drink (she usually hates whiskey) and she ended up having three!

A couple days later I bought a bottle of Wild Turkey (101 proof) and again mixed it with Coke. I think I like it better. It has a more sophisticated and complex taste. It's more peppery but still plenty sweet.
