Who’s Bad!

Posted in Real Life with tags , , , , , on August 21, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

Hawks will be writing an official post on last night’s Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band performance over on Our Lawrence… but until then I could not let these plurkiful quotes go to waste.

HawksRock asks

so when attending an MJ tribute band concert, is it proper etiquette to wear the glove on your right or left hand?
  • August 20, 2009 at 17:56 JeℓℓyBean™ is sooo smooth, it’s almost criminal.
  • August 20, 2009 at 17:56 Daila Dump the glove! :-P
  • August 20, 2009 at 17:57 JeℓℓyBean™ says Please do not wear a glove.
  • August 20, 2009 at 17:58 HawksRock I am really going more for the white Jackson HISstory time frame, cuz I could never pull off the early black jackson days…
  • August 20, 2009 at 17:59 Daila Jelly and I both agree.
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:00 JeℓℓyBean™ says (lmao)
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:00 HawksRock well Jell might need to wear gloves to carry around the big wind turbine I need to blow my hair the right way… while I lean into it.
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:01 Tymmerie says you wear the glove on the opposite hand from where the young boy who is your date is standing. Per Miss Manners.
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:01 HawksRock (lmao) Tym!
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:03 JeℓℓyBean™ says lol
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:04 Daila omg I can actually picture Jelly carrying around a wind turbine…. If you’re going to do it, I guess you might as well do it right…
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:04 Daila I may be changing my opinion on the glove… (unsure)
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:05 JeℓℓyBean™ says ahem – I won the tickets, if this is going to embarrassment extremes, I can’t take him. I have friends in town now, and I don’t wanna get
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:05 JeℓℓyBean™ says shunned, ya know? lol
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:08 HawksRock If they aren’t Thrilled, then you just tell em to Beat It because a little Off the Wall isn’t really Bad, cuz I am not that Dangerous.
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:09 JeℓℓyBean™ says omg – ok kudos for that one, I almost pissed myself with (lmao)
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:10 HawksRock actually I kinda embarassed myself with my knowledge of his discography… (blush).
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:11 Daila Hawks you are soooo good! I’m impressed!
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:13 HawksRock but but but you haven’t even seen the wind turbine yet… (tears)
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:14 Daila Okay I’ll rephrase that last plurk.
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:14 Daila I am slightly impressed, but I will be very impressed when I see the wind turbine!
  • August 20, 2009 at 22:56 JeℓℓyBean™ says
  • August 21, 2009 at 01:03 Adam My Liberian Girl is so Bad, yet Another Part of Me. When I looked at the Man in the Mirror, I knew I was a Smooth Criminal, yet she was…
  • August 21, 2009 at 01:03 Adam my Dirty Diana, making me yell Leave Me Alone one second and I Just Can’t Stop Loving You the next. I wanted to think of her as a…

I’ll always be with you

“If ever there is a tomorrow when we’re not together, there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart. I’ll always be with you.”

Winnie the Pooh was one smart bear!

Love you Bunky.

Happy Birthday Brody!

Happy 13th Birthday Brody! Welcome to your official teen-hood. I promise to not make fun of your already happening voice change if you promise not to drive me crazy!

I love you baby!



Rules of Engagement

Posted in Our Story, Real Life with tags , , , on July 16, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

Call me the crazy bride that still has oh, iunno, 815 days – 3 hours – 20 min & 3 seconds til her wedding but really, who is counting? I’m really only counting on weekdays, I swear. Oh yes, and I promise I won’t be making this the wedding blog. I’m just a little more secure with the realm of peeps that read this one over the I Came, I Vent blog. So I have a couple questions since let’s just say I’ve never had a “traditional” wedding…

  1. How does the bridal registry work?
  2. Is he suppose to help me choose where we register?
  3. What do we add to the registry? Just stuff we need?
  4. When, where & how do we let people know we’ve registered?
  5. Do we invite our online friends *gasp* and hope for the best?
  6. Do we find out a way to live stream it? Do people even care that much?
  7. Don’t you hate it when people force feed their weddings down your throat?
  8. Anyone wanna fly to Kansas & go with me to try on dresses? *snort*
  9. What’s up with the something blue? Really?
  10. Is it wrong to want to wear pink converse like I did at our SL wedding?

Playing House or You’re Married, Like Woah!

Posted in Real Life on June 1, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

Happy Summer Vacation to those who actually get one. This month my boys are spending time with their sister in Texas. Needless to say that gives Hawks & I a month to play house or like Kelsey says “you’re so totally married this month”.

Day one – and so far so good. 🙂

Zoinks! I leveled up my Kimberlee!!!

Posted in Real Life with tags , on April 19, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

You know what I just realized? I tote leveled up my Kimberlee! A lil over a year ago I moved to Kansas as a single mother, it was well.. different. First of all I’d never been on my own before. Never! I had married right out of High School & that’s all I knew. Granted as an Army wife, I did have a year here and another there where I raised the kids all alone while he was deployed but we always had his steady income. Moving to Kansas was completely different. There was no one else coming home to give me a break, help make decisions, discipline or support us. Just me to bring the sole bread home. It was uber tough in the beggining & a couple times Hawks had to jump in and help out. Sometimes I felt hopeless like I just couldn’t do this. It’s too hard & damn it I shouldn’t have to do this alone. Hawks was always there to remind me that I’m stronger than I believe I am… he’s always right by the way.

Just now as I was doing my dishes, I realized… I leveled up. I’m self-sufficent, I don’t owe Hawks or anyone else money (besides regular utilities), my car is paid off (special thanks to my ex who came through on that), my place is small but it feels like home – finally and I have the bestest kids (most days) that I could of hoped for. So yay for a GOOD reality check for once.

Okay enough mush – on to the funny. Bryan (my 12 yo old) is running for Vice-Prez of his school. Yes, the entire school, not just his grade. This was cracking me up – Here’s our slogan suggestions for him from me & Hawks…

JellyBean Madison: Choose Bryan, Get Action.
JellyBean Madison: Got Bryan?
HawksRock Gunawan: i don’t think you are sposed to be pimping out your son are ya? lol
JellyBean Madison: Let Me Serve You! Vote Bryan!
HawksRock Gunawan: Bryan Bourdon, and it’s on!!
JellyBean Madison: Thank Bryan, it’s Friday
HawksRock Gunawan: Bryan, he ain’t lying
JellyBean Madison: Change your underwear, change your school. Vote Bryan! \o/
HawksRock Gunawan: haha
JellyBean Madison: Make someone happy. Vote Bryan!
HawksRock Gunawan: Bryan – he survived Avery
JellyBean Madison: Bryan gives good government!
HawksRock Gunawan: lol
JellyBean Madison: I’m not your father’s vice president.

If you have any ideas, feel free to share in the comments…

Jinkies! I rarely come here anymore. In fact, I rarely blog anymore – at all. So let me give you a little update on stuffs. First of all the newest news is that I joined a gym yesterday… Go me! Day two & I’ve used my membership twice… so far, so good. I really need a motivator because if you can’t be honest with yourself, who can you be honest with… I’m really freaking lazy! Period! So I made my 12 year old son join with me. Hah!

We also quietly launched our new RL website/blog – Our Lawrence. Basically Hawks had the idea that we should document why Lawrence is so cool, well ok. I’m on that! *wink*

Okay as for my virtual slife… Hawks is not feeling the SL groove at the moment and I kinda am. We’re at like opposite ends of the spectrum – I want to make machinima, DJ, dance & shop and well… he wants to play WoW! *sigh* Don’t get me wrong, I loves me some WoW but gosh I’m so tired of working on quest after quest to slowly hit lvl 80. We’re currently lvl 78 DKs somewhere in an area that looks just like that area we were in a month ago but isn’t the same area where we are killing shit that sorta resembles those other things but are totally named different things. Ya know how it is.

Now on to my other other other virtualness… Plurk! Ya it’s still there. In fact it’s right here. Hawks isn’t feeling that either much. But yah he’s still there too, in fact he’s right here. We also have Brutes, yup Brutes. You know how I hate being a sheep, ya I know don’t baaaaaaaaaaa-ther. I only think you’re a sheep if you’re like the 8th+ person to join something. Hahahaha! Well as any good plurky flock, we all got Brutes, then we all got Brute alts cause you know we really honestly just want world domination & clones of our true selves. Yup! Omg! Stop looking at me like that, you were thinking it too, I just had the guts to say it outloud! Pfft!

Well that’s it for now. The best place to actually keep up with me would be plurk, so just watch my timeline or something cause I update often.

Das vadanya *waves*
