Jamie's Favorite/ Least Favorite Monster

Hey, everybody! It's time for Jamie's entry! I've known about Jamie's love of this monster for many years, and I am happy she finally gets to share this with you.

I should also add: Jamie actually provided her own captions for the pictures, so kudos to her

Favorite Monster: “Nessie”, The Lochness Monster

In no way is this picture fake

Although I do not believe in any mythical creature, I wish with all my heart that somehow Nessie could be real. I love that she is this huge sea (lake?) monster that so far no one has been able to decisively capture on film. That means she is stealthy. And smart. Or maybe she has a cloaking device, which would only make her even cooler. She also seems relatively harmless and I am a fan of friendly monsters.

Terrifyingly adorable?
Least Favorite Monster: Trashsquach

When I was around 7 years old, my mother thought she would play a funny funny trick on me and had my brother hide in a trash bag to scare me. When I went to take “the trash" out like she instructed, “the trash” moved and started following me down the hall. My 7 year old brain could not process this and to this day that moment is the most scared I’ve ever been in my life. In exchange for coming up with the name for this entry, I formally and publicly forgive Doug for his hand in this incident.

Trashquach could be the next SyFy original

Jamie, I wasn't sure if the picture you provided provided the real terror of Trashquach, so I fixed the picture for you.

Jamie, don't know if you've ever been to Vermont, but they've got their own little Nessie in "Champ":

There's a cool little museum and gift shop about the whole thing.

Also, have you seen "Audition"? Trashsquatch is totally in it.

Interesting, I did not know that about "Champ" :)

Mental note: Never see "Audition"

Uh, my understanding is that you really probably don't want to just stumble into the movie "Audition" on the basis of a charming story about your childhood. As a matter of fact, seeing Audition might make your childhood story seem a lot less charming... ;-)
