that's awesome. Was the boat wearing a pair of really ugly high heels?

SSelf 07-22-2006 01:24 PM

You hated those shoes also. She thought they were so funny looking, so she had to wear them.

listening to journey
i apologize if you thought my overall description of the accident was "passive and non-confrontational", since its something i dont mind talking about, let alone describing- although, that doesnt mean i like to talk or describe it either.

in addition, i am unclear of the true facts regarding the cause of the accident; hence, i chose to be general in my summary. however, in light of your reply, i will post the description you have posted. the webpage is for everybody, not just me- and so...i will post everybodys thoughts and concerns.

Leah, don't apologize for a damn thing. To say one death is more tragic than the other is bullshit. Julie, Sarah and you were as one. The sad part is that you were left here to make people not forget them. We appreciate everything you've done. Have you talked to Toni? Some business paid for the old Central Park sign to ask for help. The message will run for thirty days. Love Susan

You know, I'm not sure if it's just that I'm just more sensitive to things and look at things in a different light or maybe I'm jus searching for my own answers and want things to happen but at least once a week strange little things keep making me stop, sit back and think for a lil bit. Like my mom said, this was yet another really really wierd deal. We were on a huge tripple decker paddle tour boat in the bay. A tug was pushing a barge and comming real close through the bay near the USS Lexington and State Aquarium. We wouldn't have even noticed anything but the captain announced over the intercom that we had to spin around in a circle and give way to them. He seemed to make a really big deal about it and said it was very rare for this to happen but he'll take care of it. He aggressively spun the boat. We went around once and I saw what I thought it said on the port side of the tug. It sorta seemed like everything got quiet and I kept fixed on the tug. I knew what it said but really didn't believe it. Then I saw the back. I mean jeez! The Texas coast has been our vacation for the past several years which Julie loved! Since when has anyone just plainly named a boat with a single first name...come on...how bout Deep Trout...or Puddle Pirate...come on Julie help me out here...Smells Like Fish...there you go! Thanks for keeping me on my toes baby Sis! Love yas much!

two jobs and counting
in addition to (attempting) to get friends and family together to share funny stories, jokes, and insight regarding julie self and sarah laws, i am also going to make a documentary film illustrating how these two beautiful people affected us, and how they have changed our lives.

also, it will illustrate the unjustice they have shared in the sheer fact that bettie ward still walks freely today, with sign of remorse for what she has done. in fact, IN MY OPINION, i am baffled at why someone would defend themself against a sentence they know they deserve. especially for something they know well, in their hearts, they did.

...but i digress.

because filmmaking can be an expensive, and painstaking, process- i am asking for volunteers. i can not budget this film on my own, i just cant do it. i am asking for donations, that will be placed into a seperate account from my own, that will contribute to the money it will cost to make this film for julie and sarah laws. this is by donations only, of course. if you want to donate $1 or $5, this is something i want to do- because it would mean a lot to me. so not only are you doing this for julie and sarah laws, but youre doing it for me.

you can contact me directly on myspace:

iAmBaronVonTito 07-25-2006 12:34 PM

thanks to a great tip, i have found a way to raise money without you losing anything from your pockets.

i have registered with phoneraiser.com, in my attempts to raise money for the documentary regarding julie and sarah laws. i ask nothing of your time, or money, but only a donatation of your phone to this project. of course, the phone you no longer use and have nothing to do with, and is sitting in a junk drawer in your kitchen.

this would help immensely if any and all could help with this.

if you have friends with gay ass phones, planning on getting a "better" one- snatch their phone and send it in! we get money for these things, according to the website. although, the price for a phone could be only a dollar, but thats one dollar more than what i have now.

any and all help would be much appreciated. thank you to all for your support regarding this matter.

leah a.

p.s. if you are curious about this project, please visit phoneraiser.com. or you can check out iambaronvontito.googlepages.com

iAmBaronVonTito 07-26-2006 11:10 AM

so ive posted the hell out of this phoneraiser.com deal...in addition to accepting monetary funds (if possible). if you plan on sending monetary donations, please send them in a check or money order form, for your security purposes.

if you would like to contact me directly, i can be rached at a number of places:


or goto: iambaronvontito.googlepages.com and click on 'email me'. i will be glad to answer any and all questions.

im not shady!

i would have taken the "look how much seamen in Julie this week" or something else easy... like Julie.

SSelf 08-29-2006 12:16 AM

I know you are here with us. You've shown us in so many ways. I love and miss you so much. I have to have surgery tomorrow, I'm just glad it isn't on your birthday. You'd be pissed at me for messing up your day. I know I will see you again. I love you. MOM

SSelf 09-01-2006 09:57 PM

This will never be a dead thread to us.

I think I'll be in Austin/San Antonio at the end of November and early December.

SSelf 09-04-2006 05:17 PM

There is always an open invite to come see us.

scotch-romanian 09-04-2006 06:02 PM

Nick let's hang. :)

Been gone awhile, just wanted to say how sorry I was to hear of her passing. Didn't know her, but I can honestly say I wish I was 1/100th as funny as Julie.

Stabby 11-25-2006 05:33 PM

not sure if anyone else saw this or mentioned it yet but I was on the tim and eric site in their 'news' section and saw this picture under August:


iAmBaronVonTito 12-29-2006 12:59 PM

ahahahahaaa, that was taken about, oh, six weeks? before julie and sarah laws *gulp* died. haha, i think we killed a bottle of vodka and 24 beers. julie stood on the back porch and put the can between her legs and just let it go. it was funnier watching her try to get it between her legs without spilling first, in order to get the visual gag.

haha, so julie just drank as much as she could in order to manuever it. if you want more pictures like that, let me know. i think i have about four, including julie on the wet ground attempting to lick it up.

p.s. the next day i found julie sitting on the couch sipping beer from a straw while texting sarah laws...who was in the other room.

iAmBaronVonTito 01-06-2007 03:10 PM

ritzik 01-06-2007 04:53 PM

wow, thank you!

and Christ did she look like a blast to hang with!

SSelf 03-20-2007 03:18 PM

Julie, You were in Spain four years ago yesterday. Little did we know what was to come. I love and miss you. MOM

notime4sanity 03-22-2007 07:50 AM

I read this whole thread, and it's clear that Julie's loss was felt by many people, but nothing compares to the loss felt by those closest to her. I hope you're managing okay.

I lost my mother and sister in an accident just over two years ago. Despite the fact that life seems to go on oblivious to that loss, the pain never really leaves you. It just becomes another part of your person. I don't think I'm any more over the loss than I was the day after it happened. Despite this I try to keep moving forward... I mean it's not as though one has a choice.

SSelf 04-18-2007 04:15 PM

I love you Julie............................................. ......MOM

Jeez! He's gonna hafta start wearing adult sized Depends if he doesn't soon...;)

SSelf 05-29-2007 06:21 PM

I remember you standing on the arm of the couch, holding on to the ceiling watching the games. You were so weird, but we loved every minute of it. Garrett told me you talk. Don't tell him to say any bad words. We love and miss you so much. ..............................................MOM

agent_PUNT 06-18-2007 10:32 PM

Hey julie. Still thinking about you. Hugs and Misses.


txteachergal 07-28-2007 11:38 AM

I didn't know about this site until Susan sent me here. Julie and me grew up together. We went through elementary school together, and that was when we were closest. We also had a bit of middle school together and high school, but were were in different clicks. Julie was great and could make me laugh through elementary. I remember we would try to hide from her older brother and laugh at him, and then also do that to the younger one... we would hide out in her room and sing the theme song to Friends. She was great... I love her and have always have.

klaus_kinski 07-30-2007 02:20 PM

I just started uploading pics to my flickr account and came across this really nice one of Julie at an Invite Them Up afterparty.

SSelf 07-30-2007 06:16 PM

Thank you. We have so many pictures taken in New York. I wish I knew how to post them. You are in so many of them. She is so pretty. I miss her so much. Thank-you again.

SSelf 08-29-2007 12:05 AM

Happy Birthday to my beautiful girl. I miss you sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much, Julie. I love you, MOM

DoctorDelicious 08-29-2007 12:11 AM

Happy Birthday Julie

nineTENdo 08-29-2007 10:11 AM

i cant describe how weird it is to hear that Julie isnt here anymore. i just found out today about what happened two years ago, a day before my birthday. i had heard about it one night from some friends awhile back but i never thought it was her. i had a feeling last night, a sorrow in my heart that someone was going to die. later i found myself on myspace looking for old faces until i came accross hers. i never thought i was her. i suddenly felt this drop in my heart and i chill in my back. i guess it was the feeling of something great leaving your heart. i dont know what strange force brought me here to remeber her today on this day. i just know ill never forget. GOD BLESS.

I guess she wanted to be remembered today


Botts 08-29-2007 03:54 PM

Happy Birthday Julie!

justuhbill 10-10-2007 10:35 PM

Wow, how could I feel such a bond with someone I'll never know is something I'll never understand. Reading what everyone has written here made me cry like a little baby. I can't imagine the grief everyone who knew Julie must feel. My deepest sympathy goes out to all of you.

SSelf 11-16-2007 04:56 PM

I love and miss you so much,Julie. No holidays are the same without you. Your always in my heart. Till we meet again, Mom
