Sometimes You Just Gotta Say WTF

Okay, so like I'm driving home tonight and this person in front of me actually THREW A PAPER PLATE OUT THE WINDOW. It had food on it and I was like - oh no he din't [sic]. And ya know, it's hot, I'm pissy anyway because it's Monday and I just want to GO HOME. I mean, hello, didn't we all see the commercial with the Indian crying and all when we were like 5? Don't they show that anymore? So I started honking my horn and chasing the person, ready to flip him or her off and scream - "ya stupid litterbug MF" (sorry Mother Pat+, it's true, I totally would have said MF and I would not have said just the letters either). Lucky for me the person pulled onto a different off ramp than I was taking, so the whole altercation ended with me feeling like a goober. Which is okay! So I thought to assuage my anger, I would write a psalm in honor of the occurrence. I had to write one before in first year EFM (Education for Ministry - it ROCKS) and I used my experienced getting robbed at Church's Chicken for my psalm (getting robbed - don't worry about it - crap like that happens to me ALL THE TIME. Seriously).

Oh Lord, behold your worthy servant Cheeka
Who would never take your trust in vain.
I have always put my trash in the proper receptacles.
And tried to be a good steward of the earth as you directed.
Behold those evil litterbugs!
Smite them, Oh Lord, smite them!
And cast their bones to the dogs.

Whatcha think? It has all the basics - I'm a good person, I love God, my enemies suck, kill them all and scatter their bones! Ya gotta love a psalm - although I'm a bit puzzled why people could say it's their favorite part of the bible. Takes all kinds, right?

So anyway - what have I been doing? I've been busy! I finished my cards for the "Holy Cats" swap on And here they are!

Buddha, Father McKitty, His Holiness (the Pope ya big dummy heathen you) and Swami. The background technique is just plain old oil pastels and I had a ball doing them. Check out the stick-on cat eyes I got from, what a fun store!

These two are just a couple I made this weekend. I don't know why I'm allowing them to sit next to each other - especially Carrot Top with that lascivious grin on his face. But surely the Holy Mother's spiritual powers will vanquish the evil Carrot Top. The background technique is various papers collaged on (phone book, sheet music, and mulberry paper scraps) and then a coat of yellow acrylic glaze brushed on. On Who Would You Do I lightly DTP used red cats eye stamps and on Holy Mother I brushed on some Lumiere paints. Lots of fun - I'm diggin the glaze thing.

Okay, so like, I totally lost track of Saturday. I had a 6 HOUR MEETING starting at 9:00 - when it was over, came home, relaxed for a bit and then decided to take a nap which lasted until 10:00 PM. I couldn't believe it! So I did not get much done Saturday and on Sunday after church, went to Road Princess's house. As usual, fun was had by all, and we had some more Chinese food. Is it okay to call it that instead of Asian food? Cuz while it was Asian, it was also Chinese. I actually worked with a woman THIS YEAR who called it slanty-eye food. Seriously. She didn't even crack a smile when she said it, either. If I'd known I was gonna get fired from that job (this is the job before the job I got downsized from - I'm telling you, my luck SUCKS DONKEY) I would have told her how awful she was but hey, she'd been on the job for 38 years so what could I really say?
That's all for now - I'm going to put up another post in a bit or in the morning about Soul Journaling - I'm starting that now - do I need another group to join or swap or whatever? Noooo but this sounded like something that would be good for me to do. So - till next time! Cheeka
