Hell Hath No Fury Like a Cajun Scorned

The Cajun people are resolute in their love and worship of the crawfish.

Look at this motherfuckin' crawfish, bitches!

Marinate on this one. If a woman hires someone to kill her estranged husband  and his new girlfriend, it is acceptable; she can just rest at home for three years. On the other hand, if a man steals crawfish, he can bet his thieving ass that he will sit in a jail cell for two years.

Even without me, there is never a dull moment in my hometown, folks.

Time Can’t Kill Mockingbird

Join the Celebration

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee!

This heart-wrenching, coming-of-age tale set in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than thirty million copies worldwide, served as the basis of an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country.

How has To Kill a Mockingbird affected you?  Share your story on Twitter #TKAM

As the self-proclaimed reader of banned books, I am often asked to name my favorite banned book and explain why I love it so.  Longtime readers of this blog know that Harper Lee’s coming of age novel To Kill a Mockingbird has impacted me not only as a woman, a parent, and an educator but more so as a human being.  Lee’s powerful words resonate with me each time I read the novel and long afterward.  I learned as many lessons about courage, compassion, and self-awareness from Atticus Finch as his children Jem and Scout did.

You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.

This simple yet crucial bit of advice should govern all of our lives.  I try to live my life by taking time to see things from every perspective.  We all struggle with trying to live with sympathy and understanding toward others.  If you have never read To Kill a Mockingbird, there is no better time than the present.  It is a timeless reminder that tolerance and compassion for all is just as clear today as it was 50 years ago.

Thank you, Miss Nelle Harper Lee, for enriching our lives.

Support Your Local Lurker

I started seven different blog posts today, but none of them seemed to fit what I wanted to say.  Hell, I’m not exactly sure what the fuck I wanted to say today either.   I spent an extensive portion of the day online looking for inspiration.  When all hope was gone that I would post two days in a row, a light bulb moment occurred.  My alter-ego whispered to me that I should review what I learned from others on The Internet today while I was lurking.

And, so it came to pass, Twtter, Plurk, and Facebook provided me with blog fodder.

  • My uncle is looking for a poop changer via FB.
  • Certain things happen only on Bravo if you live @citizenjaney’s house.
  • In general, I don’t think people are bad, but I do think they make bad choices.
  • One can never have enough toilet paper or flip flops.
  • I love the word knackered like it’s my job.
  • Snapper’s back!
  • I am so over the Keanu meme.
  • “We must ensure a disaster like this doesn’t happen again.” ~ Barack Obama
  • I need this iPhone app.  Like yesterday.
  • I crack my own shit up.  Scroll down for my comment du jour.  Yes, Sybil I said HYMEN.  If you are not reading worshiping this Aussie badass, shame on you.

A Different Kind of Gifted And Talented

Though my sculptures are quite small, it’s important for people to realize that I am life-size. Of course, at times, when I’m working on a piece, I might come to believe that I myself am microscopic. That’s how involved in my work I become. My tiny world becomes everything to me.

Be Careful What You Wish For

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE!  I have been interviewed by my favorite Emerald City Guy after I stalked him like a crazed fag hag for months now.  I so love the gays, especially Chris.  Swoon. He even inspired the title in his response to my psycho hose beast stalker application.

1. If you were forced to relocate tomorrow, where would you go and why?

I already know I am going to hell because my latest rant created a wee bit of controversy and backlash.  Although I am going to hell, I know it will be kick ass because all my friends will be there.

2. We all know that you’re a psycho hose beast, tell us about one situation that exemplifies this name.

Jesus on a stick!  Just one? Don’t you read this blog? Have you read PSA to My Fucktacular Boss? or any of my Monkey Boy posts?  or the posts to the wannabes?   Visit my archives.  I dare you.

3. What is the worst part of living in Las Vegas, the best?

The worst part of living in Las Vegas is the graffiti.  It is an eye sore and a commentary on the apathy of today’s youth.  I would like to see the local government take a tougher stance on this crime as well as more community outreach programs for troubled youth.

Conversely, the best part of living in Las Vegas is it truly is a 24/7 town.  There is never a dull moment or nothing to do (if you are an adult).  I do not think it is the best place to raise kids, but I am a small town girl with small town values at heart.  Many of my friends are doing great by their children here … no haters need to respond to this opinion.

4. We both worship at the altar of the sushi temple. What is your favorite sushi?

Hamachi (yellowtail tuna) sashimi is my all-time favorite, but I do have an affinity for uni (sea urchin) with a little quail egg on top.  I will try anything once.

5. You have a 10 minute snatch and grab shopping spree at the store of your choice. Which store and what do you hone in on?

Borders … a banned book or two, of course.

Don’t forget the rules….

Link back to the original post and also to the interviewer’s post and include the following in your post:

Want to be part of it?  Follow these instructions:

1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Wait. Which Johnny Castle Did You Mean?

The gay for pay porn star?

Or Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing?

Yes, I am a tease, but you know you love me.
