this used to be our family blog entitled "British Royalty versus the Ramsey Clan" (since i'm descended from King Edward II and jon is a descendant from the Ramsay Clan) but since jon never participated, and my mom is the only one who reads this, it is now a format for writing her letters. I mean, for writing you letters, mom.

Margie's Stick Project

margie has four sticks, fallen branches, in her backyard. these sticks often misbehave and she is forced to bark at them incessantly. at times, she likes them to line up in a row, at times she likes to carry them in her mouth across the yard to a different spot, and at times she likes to bite, drag, gnaw, and throw them up in the air. Little girls have dolls. Little Margies have sticks.

Iron Chef Challenge

Kitchen Stadium Masters, Jon & Meredyth took on the challenge of creating edible dishes with ginger in front of an audience of 12 of their peers. All were surprised when Jon took the title. Meredyth's food was much more presentable, but i guess the crowd went wild for Jon's chilled beef tatake which melted in their mouths like bovine velvet.

ocean over @ station 4, st. paul, mn

[jon is in a band] Before their base-player quit his job and moved to new zealand to eat kiwi fruit and stare at the ocean, this band was known to play in public.
time has dissolved the leftover three into the basement where they record in private.

white... trash.

Yes, Easter Holiday often commemorates the Resurrection of the Christ.

But it's also a time to rummage through your stash of candy beans, use them as teeth, and inspire new tv sitcoms like My Name Is Earl.

We're very proud.

true story

jon ramsey. direct descendant of the ramsay clan of scottland. you know, braveheart. william wallace. ramsay was one of the three clans hated by the english.

susan heath. direct descendant of king edward the second. you know, ole eddie the longshanks from the same movie, the one who sent orders for his english army to kill off those mangy scottish people.

put the two together, and you have a marriage made in heaven. jon and i spend most of our time planning wars against each other. i usually rape, pillage, and quarter him, while he takes his recourse by throwing rocks and sticks at me, being poor, cussing, and riding his horses all up on my front lawn with his shield and sword, screaming, "FREEEEEEEEDOOOOOOOMM!"

other than that we're pretty boring. introverted. and artsy.

we have three kids named phineas, napoleon, and marjory. cat, cat, dog.

the end.
