It is a combination of my name 'Jem' and the first computer I used when I started making music 'Ibook' :)

- puppies - I can't help but squeal at them when I see them.

12. Ideas of a perfect date
- (this date idea I came up for my blog back in 2011)
Bring a disposable camera, and go out into a busy area where you live with your ‘date’ [friend, whatever] and ask strangers to take your picture. Get as many people as you can to take your picture together [and make sure to do fun and different poses, experiment!] until you use the entire roll of film. Then go to your local target or whatever to develop the film. Take the hour that you have to wait for the film to develop [you did get one-hour right] to have lunch or dinner or whatever time it is. Then go pick up the film and bring it with you to a coffee shoppe or ice cream parlor and sit down and take out your sharpies and white-out pens and draw designs and write quotes on them. After this, go around town and tape/glue them up around your hood, tack them to message boards, leave them in the mirror @ Starbucks, hide them in magazines and books at Barnes ‘n Nobles, until you have no more photographs.
Celebrate the fact that you are the most publicized couple in town with a non-awkward kiss facilitated by the mistletoe you keep in your back-pocket.
