Update on us after the Tornado hit our house.
In case you don’t know on the 18th of Feb a 3 or 4 story tall tree was twisted in half by a tornado and landed in my living room and kitchen.Both rooms got flooded so the house is unlivable.We didn’t have insurance so we couldn’t afford to repair the home and I don’t think it was even repairable.The red cross helped us for 3 days but after that the Gov did NOTHING to help us!If it weren’t for the help and kindness of friends and family we would have been homeless.I had 9.00 to my name the day it happened.Nobody 2,4 or even 8 legged was hurt and that is all that really matters.
We are doing ok though!
We are getting settled into the rent house.I have allot of my art/business stuff moved over here. I’m still trying to figure out what to do about the kiln.I had a separate shed outside of the destroyed house and since there is naturally no power turned on the home I can’t fire there.And the kiln is so large it takes a plug like you plug a drier into.So maybe once I make some more money I can afford to have a line run or SOMETHING.I was going to get power turned on back at the house just to use the kiln but I don’t think I can afford that.It’s been a ordeal with having to try and move things from one place to another.And it’s also been a pain because since the flooring the living room flooded really bad and the kitchen also flooded,there is issues of trying to salvage things,having to throw heavy stuff out,cut up wet carpets ect to try and stave off the mildew.Allot of stuff that didn’t even get rained on had to be thrown out because the humidity is so bad as it is here and with a wet living room it’s even worse.
It’s really exhausting some days having to go to the old house and try and throw out ruined things and try and save non-ruined stuff and then come to the rent house and find a darn place for it.
My cousin bought me a work desk yesterday so I will be able to get back to work soon so I can make some money.
If anybody wants to help out,we greatly appreciate it.And when people have been donating I basically look at it like they bought something and will send everybody a thank you gift.

Ugly Shyla,Darlene and all the pets.
I will be vending my dolls http://www.uglyart.net in the artist alley section of the New Orleans Comic Con http://www.wizardworld.com/home-neworleans.html this weekend.So feel free to stop by my booth and intro yourself 🙂
I was at the post office mailing out doll mess.And I go to walk out the double doors out into the doors out the outside and who do I see but Little Fatty.I don’t know if Little Fatty saw me before hand or not.Let me give you a background on Little Fatty and that side of the family in general,they HATE being embarrassed in public.They would rather DIE then have that happen.I on the other hand have no fucking sense and don’t mind it a bit.Said reenactment will be typed as I said it.Bad grammar and all,because nothing is more funny then hearing a Cajun person be pissed off.Oh and please keep in Mind Little Fatty looks JUST like Jan Skylar from the Married News Team on Tim and Eric but when scared or angered she looks and acts like Casey Tatum.
I see Little Fatty from the back and say loud but not screaming *did I mention I live by the train tracks so I can be heard 10 blocks away without screaming?*
Anyhoo I see Fatty and say HEY WHY YOU HARASSING MY MAMA!.She tries to act like I’m not talking to her and proceeded to walk in front and turn her head to the side and is shoving her mouth to the side like nobody will see her lips move,and says “I never called your mother”.Mind you she’s even started her shit when other people are around.
I said “you DID call harass my mother and it best stop!”
She keeps walking and is further away so of course I must get louder and point and fling my hands around like all easily excitable Cajun people so everybody will KNOW I’m talking to her.
Fatty tells me “Y’all better stop harassing me or I will ***guess what kids???**** FILE CHARGESSSSSSSS!
I ask “Why you breaking into my buildings????”
At this point she is scrabbling for her keys to her car,I’m still by the doors so I have to get even louder,at this point there are at least 3 people looking at her like GAWD what did you do to make that thing like looks like a big blue jay holler at you???
I told her “No I’M GOING TO FILE CHARGES IF you don’t STOP BREAKING INTO MY BUILDINGS!!!!
At this point Fatty drives away and everybody is looking at her even harder because now they realize said big blue jay looking thing is angry because she broke into it’s nest.
There could or couldn’t be a afterlife.None of us have 100% concrete proof.I personally believe there is a afterlife.I tend to have a decent set of morals,which I think surprises people since I’m a non-Christian.Voodoo tends to have a set of morals,and Satanism even has a set of morals in The Eleven Satanic Rules of the
Earth.This is my personal theory I treat other’s the way I would want to be treated,till they provoke me to do otherwise.I also look at it this way if there is a afterlife where I will rack some sort of spiritual brownie points by conducting myself as a decent individual that is wonderful.And if the opposite is true and there is nothing after death,when I’m at the point of dying and slipping into that big nothing,I can know that while on my one way trip I treated other’s and behaved in a decent manner because it was my one shot.
When people would challenge Saint Martín de Porres about his kindness to animals,because they believed that animals had no soul and therefore it didn’t matter how one treated them.Saint Martín de Porres would tell them something to the effect of that if this was the animals one life and after which there was no heaven for them to go to,one had to be extra kind to them.Because is that was the case after that there was no other chance.
People don’t understand how I can not be a Christian yet I still have a burning obsession with Jesus.
I not only have a obsession with Jesus having gone to a Christian school as a child.I’m totally and completely obsessed with what he represents.I’m not talking about the fuzzy Sunday school Jesus that is all about hugging lambs and loving his fellow man.I’m talking about the exhausted,sweating blood,money changer table throwing,suffering Jesus.
Jesus drank from the dregs of being alone and abandoned.He went out of his way for people and went so far as dying and nobody cared or appreciated it.Jesus is the obsession of the over worked and under appreciated.He couldn’t trust the people he was around or even rely on them in any way shape or form.
Jesus got pissed off and yelled at people and threw things out of frustration.And don’t tell me Jesus didn’t get mad he got MAD.He hit people with whips and broke their stuff.
He was the son of God but still had a job and worked hard.Which is less then I can say for allot of Satanist I know.My Jesus obsession will allot of times chap the ass of allot of Satanist I come across,because I’m not “satanic” enough.Because I have to be a ass and have a obsession with something I want to be obsessed with.Not something that will give me cool brownie points.
I enjoy reading stories about Jesus and the Saints because it gives me great comfort to read about somebody who also went through suffering or trails and just became better more experienced people out of it.
And I have to say I also get a warm fuzzy feeling every time I see a image of Jesus,and I don’t give a damn who likes it or understands it.because it makes ME happy.
And yes I know I shouldn’t shop at Wal-Mart.But if you don’t want me to shop at Wal-Mart feel free to send me a extra 200.00 a months so I can shop at Piggly Wiggly exclusively.One more reason to hate Wal-Mart.I live in a very small town.So I don’t have allot of places to shop.Well the local Wal-Mart remodeling.Today they informed me they for the time being and maybe for good will NOT carry large bags of cat food.If you are a cat owner write walmart and express your distain for this.I know I sound like a crazy cat lady but it’s stupid.
I have over 5 insides cats,servral outside cats and I feed any stray I posiablly can,which is the reason cheap and large bags of cat food are a total godsend.But now I’m likely going to have to drive almost a hour out of town to go to petsmart to get large bags of cat food.My inside cat’s aren’t to keen on the only brand I can find in a large bag that is affordable.So if they want to be fussy and don’t like any other brands in town I’ll have to drive about a hour to get them something else.
My friend Aunia Kahn who has been a friend,artist buddy and also the
designer behind the layout for my uglyart.net website is going through
a terrible time right now.Her brother recently took his own life on
V-day and her mother is struggling with cancer.They need help covering
the cost of funeral cost so please please if you can donate to them
please do so. Info and how to donate cane be found here
I’m going to try and make a doll or something and sell and donate all
the proceeds to her so y’all keep a eye out for it.
Uh Oh kids I smell burning coal and cat hair,that can only mean one thing Krampus cat is coming to town!
