Humans writing words that span topics from support to design to content management and beyond!



After about a year of working with Jamie at REM, I started to notice a few things that he liked to say. I like listening and observing what people say and how they say it, and there were definitely a few things that he says more than once or twice that I’ll catch and think: hey, those are his common phrases!


He’ll say these phrases when he wants to drive a point home, get the urgency of his point across and/or motivate/inspire/hype us up. So without further ado, here are a few of Jamie’s common phrases or as we like to call them “Jamie-isms:”


  • Kick at the Can: ie. another attempt at something. "Let's have another kick at the can."
  • Right-Click-Save: ie. when certain tasks are more complicated than opening, saving then closing. "There's a lot more to making a website than just right-click-save."
  • The Feather on Your Cap: ie. a piece that one could show off and be proud of "That website we made is so awesome we'll put it in our portfolio! That's the feather in our cap!"
  • Pair of Dimes: 20 cents. it’s a paradigm!


Sometimes he says he’ll be “chasing bugs”. He means he’ll be fixing a few hiccups and quirks. But to me, this is what I envision when he says this:

Jamie-ism: Chasing Bugs

Last but not least, I’d like to end this blog post with a Jamie-ism; this one I like because it’s positive, motivating and sums up the trajectory we have and want to have here at REM:


Onward and Upward!
