emo celebration

Wednesday, June 25th, 2008

I was feeling inexplicably down last week so I made this comic as a little kick in my own behind.  Sometimes, laughing at your absurdity helps.  Sometimes, it doesn’t.  Either way, creating stuff is a nice way to kill time while your in Sadville.

I want to say a quick thanks to Amelia G over at Blue Blood Magazine for writing this little article about me and my paper frog hunt.  I expect hoards of paper frogs to come flooding the mail any day now.  Any…….day……………………now?  Blue Blood has a nice goth community, stories about horror, fashion, art, etc. It’s all tied up in a black velvet ribbon waiting for you to tear into, so check it out.

It wasn’t all gloomy last week.  In fact, I probably laughed the hardest I have in a long time.  You’ll like this…
So, I’m at my Mom’s house in another room and I hear her singing to her new kitty this darling little ditty:

“We want your ovaries…We want your ovarieeeeeeees.  We already took your brother’s balls and now we want your ovaries!”

I kid you not.  That’s what she was singing.  Over and over.

The kitty in question is part of a bunch of strays that have been living and procreating behind my mom’s office.  She’s been caring for this parking lot cat tribe for months. This includes feeding, neutering, spaying, flea medicine, medical treatment for wounds, etc.  So she’s not completely evil, I swear. 😛

Little Ruby was in really bad shape, near death actually, when my Mom brought her home.  She’s doing great now and has even stopped terrorizing the other cats.  She was pretty tough for a bag of bones.  Oh and her brother might not have testicles anymore but he does have a home.   There are a couple of kittens still out there if any one local is interested in adopting one. They are in the Largo / Clearwater area.  Email me – calanATgingerDeadDOTcom if your interested.

Until next week….

    Lovely dress.

    Curiosity and a tear-tini is a dangerous mix.

    Friends and parties almost always work
    to chase away the sads. I love this weeks
    comic and the pity party/tear-tini concept.

    crying in my beer
    and crying over spilled milk
    stop laughing at me

    gabe – i’m guessing you aren’t going to elaborate on that even if i say pwitty pweez

    sera – thanks sera. i actually made myself giggle at tear-tini. that doesn’t happen too much so i thought it was a good sign.

    Sounds like your mom is Queen of the cat people… and that technically makes you an heiress.

  5. calan Says:

    adam, believe me i am aware of how many cats i’ll be inheriting if anything happens to my mom. i fear i’m destined to become the crazy old cat lady one day.

    should really get this party going.

    Ahh i missed this last week. Well better late than never. Lenoir has never looked so cute. I love that dress on her. Sorry it took you having a bad week for it to come out though 🙁

    Tear-tini lol thats good. So was your mom’s song. Too funny. I would send you some paper frogs but there arent any around here. So take care till next time. Which isn’t really all that far off YAY!!!!

    does your mom work with any of the local spay and neuter rescue groups? I used to do a lot of cat rescues when i lived in the Lutz area and I know the expenses add up. There are a couple of places she could call if shes not already affiliated with one. As crazy as it sounds i used to sing to my strays too but it wasnt about taking their ovaries or testies it was more like “we’re tired of you making babies in our crawl space so we’re gonna take away your genitals”.

  16. calan Says:

    thanks matt 🙂

    Amanda – i don’t think she ended up getting help from any organization with the expenses. they were using nearby vets and it was definitely costly. i know she was in touch with friends of strays, etc. at this point, the main momma kitty has just been adopted and the remaining 2 kittens are in an adoption place, the rest of the adults have been adopted too. i think that’s the last of them. this has been going on for quite a while, but i think she managed to get them all neutered, spayed and off the streets. 😀

  17. Amanda Says:

    oh thats good there are so many feral and stray colonies here in tampa alone and most people dont realize what an impact they are to the native wild life. They really screw up the local ecosystem because they eat the native birds and that messes up the ballance not to mention they cary some really nasty diseases that can spread to racoons and armadillos. There was a really large out break of Rabies a few years back that started with feral and stray cat colonies. As long as your mom is careful though there shouldn’t be a problem.
