Freshly finished today. :) My love of strange and fantastical nature creations inspired me once again.

I know. I live in KC and we were the hottest and driest in all of the US for 2 1/2 months. We got some rain from the hurricane last week, but that was it. Still 100 damn degrees here in September! Sick of it. :(

for me most times 35-40 is tooooo hot :D

though if i was where you are i would most likely tolerate tha temp for tha opportunity to punch that fred phelps family in tha face

and we had that same crap here in tha past couple weeks...rain that didn't help like ya might hope for it to do....instead it just made it more swamp ass nasty humid

i would swear when i was a kid i remember september starting school and that time meant long sleeves or even a jacket or coat maybe

also quiting smoking has sucked shit though a tiny coffee stirring straw

my mom has cancer but thats ok she is a monster and tha world is better without her however my dad is not and he has to suffer and that sucks

and this crap is just tha appetizers...and no im not fucking complaining...just seriously worn out on life on planet earth...short bus of tha universe

Geez.....when it rains it pours. :(

Our rain helped the drought situation, but it def made the humidity go through the roof here as well. I used to live an hour or so from Memphis, so I know exactly what southern summers and humidity is like and I don't miss it one bit.

I remember going school shopping with my mom as well, and I agree, it was never 100 degrees in freakin' September. We were wearing jeans and long sleeves! It's amazing how the weather has changed the last 15-20 yrs.

Quitting smoking is tough. I've had many family members and friends that have tried and failed several times. Just hang in there, bc it's worth it to quit. :)

So sorry to hear about your parents. I know you may not care about your mother, but I still hope she will be alright. I haven't talked to my father in 13 yrs, and as much as I hate him, he's still my dad and I do remember times when he wasn't a total loser asshole. And I know it must be hard on your father to have to deal with the fact your mom is sick. It takes it's toll on the whole family.

I know you aren't complaining, and you know you can always rant and rave to me about anything you like anytime. I care about you and you've always been a great friend to me. :hug:

WOW!!! It's like that scene in The Empire Strikes Back were Vader and Luke are fighting in the carbonite works, Luke falls in the pit and Vader goes, "All to easy!" Luke flies up into the hoses and Vader goes, "IMPRESSIVE!!!" :D Once again the Mistress of Da Sharpie does not disappoint! Love the design and color. Reminds me of a killer plant like the Venus Flytrap!!!!
