Updates from Aussie and Jason

So it is 8:30 in the morning. Jason is passed out, mouth open, in bed and me, well, I'm wide awake ready to go do something. Jason and I never wake up at the same time. During the week Jason is the one waking up around 6:00 a.m. for work, while I get to sleep in. Then during the weekends he wants to spend half the day sleeping while I'm wide awake!

Married life is great. Nowadays it's hard to catch us on the same page because our daily lives are so different we get tired at different times, want to have sex at different times, want to eat at different times ... but, honestly, I couldn't ask for anything better than Jason. We learn to accommodate each other and that's what it's all about, making sure we are BOTH happy! I really love life with him in it; there is just never a dull moment around Jason. I wish people could see how he really acts when no one is around. He is definitely a one of a kind, silly, little kid, who just wants to play.

Today we are getting Jason a new car. Well, the car is no where near new, but it's new to Jason. Jason had a 1991 Chevy Silverado that wasn't working very well so he sold it a couple of days ago and now he is using that money to buy a car that he can drive to work. So, today we are going to go pick up a 1988 Mazda RX7. It's a two-seater, so I'm excited about that. It's an only Jason and Aussie car! It's also a stick shift, and let me tell you, I do not do well with stick. I've tried to learn, but every time I try, I freak out when I get past first gear and I don't know what to do. But I am determined to learn. So I will have to keep you updated on my progress once we get the car.

Oh, my dad! It is also his birthday today, I don't have anything planned; well, I don't have any money to plan anything. I am still bitter about all the nothing that he paid for at the wedding. Hey, I don't have money for his birthday, he should understand. I mean, there is always next year. But my wedding, that is not next year and will never be again. I got him a card and I think I used Jason's money to buy it -- pretty lame. Right now I'm kind of in between jobs, so I have more bills than I can afford. Thank God I have Jason. Jason said to me a while ago, "Hey Aussie, I think I'm going to have to start giving you an allowance!"

Well, it is almost 9:00 am. I think its time to jump on Jason, I mean, he is missing his Saturday morning cartoons!


I have always been big on writing lyrics, poems, sentences, essays -- anything. I think it all started when I was in elementary school with stupid little poems, then to middle school writing love songs when I knew nothing about love, then to high school essays and more poems and lyrics about everything going on in my life.

Well, November 23, 2005, Jason Ramos came into my life and it took me about a month to write this song about him. This was when Jason and I were still new, of course, and all we said was, "I like you." The last line in the song says, "I love you." It actually took me a while to give the song to Jason, because I was scared what he would think and scared because we had never said "I love you" to each other. I finally gave him the song in the end of December and he loved it. I was the first person who has ever written him a song.

Here is the song:

"December Eleven"

I like you a lot love/ And I really do miss you too/ With everyday we experience together/ Well, dear we are just kids with days and years to go/ But lovers crave for what we see and feel/ So let me write you that novel I said I would of a boy that drove me

See, I've been building these sky high walls around my body and soul/ How I've longed to be untouchable yet, loved/ These walls I swear were made for ... well, honestly, I'm not sure what for/ From start to no finish/ That night I sat quiet with eyes intensely watching your every move/ These walls you begin to tear down so gently, just right/ How could I have known/ You caught me so unarmed and beautiful/ Intoxicated and vulnerable/ Dear, you took care of me, out of harm

I like you a lot love/ And I really do miss you too/ Take me in/ Take me out of here/ Because reading each other's minds and just losing all control between you and me/ yeah you think exactly like me/ Beautifully precious

So, you said I could and now we hold hands/ Going strong fast together/ Covering Berkeley street with sheets covering us/ Foggy windows shared with cold winter nights/ And this music that we intake and frosties we inhale/ Smiles, laughs, never ending fingertips/ You are what puts me to sleep, darling.

I like you a lot love/ And I really do miss you too/ Take me in/ Take me out of here/ Because reading each other's minds and just losing all control between you and me/ yeah you think exactly like me/ Beautifully precious.

Your hand always seems to find me/ Just at the right time and place/ As do I/ Yes, as do I/ I said I liked you/ You say you will never leave/ Things are said, but who is to tell/ We all know only time will tell/ But we both know time will tell it right/ Take straight out of the movies and made compatible/ The old lady smiled at us, dear/ I swear they all love us/ And I swear I love you



MALICIOUS SLAUGHTER IS BACK TOGETHER!!!!!!! We ended up getting back together after the show and we are currently making new music. We hope to get EP's out this summer. Malicious Slaughter really appreciates all the support everyone has given us. Aussie and I also love all the support and good feedback from the show. It is great to know that we have inspired people everywhere to stand up for the their love. This whole experience has been amazing and we hope to bring more great times to everyone!!! Thank you again for EVERYTHING!!!

That is absolutely precious! That song is awesome, and very beautiful. If it was a poem, I apologize. Congrats on getting married, and don't worry Aussie, we all are in between jobs at one point or another. And your dad should understand if you couldn't get him a present.

Of all of the couples I have seen on this show I have never been this confident that if anyone can make a marriage work, it is the two of you. I was inspired by the maturity that you both showed when you met opposition towards your impending marriage. The fact that you let it bring you closer together rather than tear you apart shows a great deal about your love and devotion to one another. Aussie, I am so happy that your father came around and was there to support you. And Jason, getting her tickets to see her favorite band was beyond amazing. I wish you both the best of everything life has to offer you, Congratulations!

Alllll right! Well, your episode has by far been my favorite, I could relate to you two, more. I'm so happy for you and your love truly inspires me. Aussie, your song is beautiful. I love every word. And, Jason, I'm so happy your band got back together, yay! :D I hope you two are happy forever!
ps, what was the name of the first song you danced to at your wedding? I loved it.

Hey :)
I just wanted to say that you two are the best I've seen of the show so far. You faced so many obstacles and so many different challenges against your love, but you both stood strong for what you both believe in. That's major cookie points right there. =)

Aussie, I love your song. I used to write songs and play them at the Gypsy Den but for some reason I ran into a major writer's block... last year. I haven't gotten out of it. What do you do to get out of it? What inspires you to write?

I also had a question. What does the tattoo on both you and Jason's wrists say? I couldn't catch it as I was watching the show. All I know was that I loved it, loved the idea about it, and I don't know. I guess to me, that meant more than a ring ever will. You guys rock =).

I just wanted to say that you wrote a great song :] I've always loved writing poetry and it's given me a way to express my feelings. It's definitely great to see a couple so in love, who care about each other's happiness. I hope that I could find that great love someday. Best wishes. Enjoy life :]

heyy :)
Aussie and Jason.You two are by far the best couple ive seen.
What I like about you so much is how much me and my boyfriend can releate to you. Hes in a Metal band, the think us dating is a big mistake. I want to marry him, And he wants to marry me..but we are only 15. We have been dating since we were 12 off and on, until he moved to south Carolina. Now once I graduate High School, I have the option to move up there with him. My parents compleatly disaprove of him. But hey, Its not there life its mine.
You Guys have inspired me so much.
Congrats, and Good Luck.

I am so glad that the band got back together! Hopefully you can make lots of awesomely awesome music and I will buy all the CDs!

As for you two, you two are so adorable! I hope that your dad understands Aussie. I mean he should. No one should expect anyone to have money after a wedding no matter their age. Weddings aren't cheap.

I really hope that you two have a long and awesome life together. From what I saw, you two really care about each other.

And, you two are my favortiest couple on the show. I just know you two will definetly make it.


o yea, what was the name of the first combined song at your wedding?

Your story made me cry for the most part of two days!
and everytime I put on mtv there you are! Your story made me cry so hard because of how much you remind me of me and my boyfriend.
Hes in a metal band
(it was so cool that jason was sporting one of my favorite bands t-shirts Cattle decapitation!)
but I'm into boys like girls.
your love looked so great!
but my boyfriend never wants to get married..just live together.
and thats why your story got to me..
because Jason wanted to get married..
I havent told my boyfriend about the show yet but I think Im going to watch it with him and see if he thinks your wedding dance was as perfect as I thought it was..
We mosh together.
and I really think we could end up like you. if only he would want to get married.
he wants us to spend our lives together and I know he loves me its just that marriage is too gay for him or something..
well I just had to let you guys know that your story changed me.
and made marriage look doable
and great.
and keep blogging please!

I rewatch your episode over and over, and I never get sick of your great story. It's so beautiful.

Do either of you know what song is playing when you're exchanging vows?

At June 25, 2007 at 10:07 PM , Blogger Blake said...

Sorry man, i wish i knew also I have most of the lyrics but i cant find the name of the song on any search engine
"When the (road?) things seem clear
There’s nothing bigger than the little things
you do, that’s true
and I feel stronger now that im weak
and if I could always stay this way
with you
yes all I do
you are the star, you are the star, you are the star
it’s the day we get (for real?)"

If anyone knows or find out let me know please, its the song as she is walking down the isle on her wedding day.

I loved the show about you guys. it reminded me of me and my boyfriend so much. We had a kid at a young age and it was hard especially with our music difference. He is in to hard stuff like underoath and what not and I am in to Indie Like bright eyes and I love the shins. they'll change your life. I love that a little scene girla and a hard core kid found a connection. It is so cute. I know you guys will make it. Your song was great Aussie.

Aussie, what was the name of the song you walked down the aisle to/ were exchanging vows?

Hey...I think you guys are so cute together but I have a question. What is the name of the song that plays in the very beginning of your episode when you're practicing dancing. The lyrics go something like" and me...on a fantasy" or something like that but I can't find out what song it is. Thanks!
