The name

So I feel compelled to explain the name. Many of you might have guessed JEM are the initials of my family members. After Jonathan was born we got a congratulatory email from a dear friend of ours JP Flory. There he pointed out that we could now be "truly outrageous"... sending me into hysterical laughter and several moments reminiscing over one of the best television shows of my childhood. Not to mention my own secret identity of glamorous rock star--I am JEM, or at least I was in my bedroom.
I was then struck by the irony that Everette had NO idea what JP was referring to, even after I explained it to him. I thought it would be perfect. After all, we are Truly Outrageous.
For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, please check out this youtube video. Enjoy!
