She's Not a Morning Person #09
Description: Written in November 2011, this zine chronicles my complicated relationship with my recently deceased dad. I talk about my childhood and what it was like to grow up in a chaotic, oftentimes abusive household and what it was like to grow up with an addict. There is also writing on how my relationship with my father shaped me, for both the good and the bad. The zine is raw, emotional, and extremely honest. If abuse, addiction, or grief are triggers for you, please read with care.
56 pages, 1/4-sized, assorted covers

Themes: family, childhood, addiction, death, grief
Price: $3.00ppd or comparable trade
How to buy: Please email me to discuss trades or to get a current address if you are sending well-disclosed cash. Otherwise you can buy via Paypal by clicking the button below.

For back issues or more information, you can go here: She's Not a Morning Person zine. Also, I'll be tabling at the LA Zine Fest in February if you want to come say hi!

So I forgot to mention this here but I have an eating disorder recovery / fat positive / feminist blog over at http://jenvenegas.com/blog, called Skinned Knees. I'd love to trade links with friends & what not.

I'm also at the following:

that I am done wasting time and energy and love on someone who can clearly articulate my needs and yet willingly denies giving them to me despite telling me how much he loves me?

I got the syndication feed to work for my new blog - you can check it out here: classiccatast or add it to a feed reader by going to the blog itself, here. You can add it to your friends list and read the blog from your friends page if you'd like.

Also, love_adhesive & I are working on a photo shoot tomorrow for a shop update. More sizes will be available (including some smaller sizes) so keep your eyes peeled on Thursday or Friday!

So I made a friends-list cut. It's truly nothing personal. I've been feeling a little too over-exposed lately and I want to try to change that. That said, I'm also going mostly friends-only around here. If you want to remove me from your list, that's totally fine with me.

Also, I'm kinda half-assedly doing away with the fats-filter. I think I'm just going to post sales posts in a public entry here. I haven't really been able to post them ahead of time like I'd planned so I usually try to give some kind of shipping discount and I think I'll continue that.

Lastly - I made a new blog over at blogspot. It's going to accompany the Etsy shop but also be a sort of art & inspiration blog. I'm also posting my daily outfits over there (as well as on flickr as usual). You can check it out here: Classic Catastrophe blog. I'm working on creating an lj syndication feed for it (I kinda messed it up and have to wait for LJ support to fix it) so you can add it to your friends' list if you're into that.

ETA: Here's the link for the feed: http://syndicated.livejournal.com/classiccatast

Current Mood: tired

My forehead breaks into a sweat. I unfasten a button and loosen my scarf. The air cools my skin; the fever recoils, then sends hot tadpoles wiggling against the cold. Drive the animal before you and never stop. Starve it, cut it, stuff silicone in it. Feed it until it's too fat to think or feel. Then cut it open and suck the fat out. Sew it up and give it medication for pain. Make it run on the treadmill, faster, faster. Examine it for flaws. Not just the body but the mind, too. Keep going over the symptoms. It's not a character defect; it's an illness. Give it medication for pain. Dazzle its eyes with visions of beauty. Dazzle its ears with music that never stops playing. Send it to graze in vast aisles of food so huge and flawless that it seems to be straining to become something more than food. Dazzle its mind with visions of terror. Set it chasing a hot, rippling heaven from which illness and pain have been removed forever. Set it fleeing the silent darkness that is always at its heels. Suck it out. Sew it up. Run. When the dark comes, pray: I love my ass.

cleo - tiny tiger kitten by Suspect Shoppe

I've been teetering lately and trying to find some ground to stand on. I'm trying to keep myself busy to get out of my head but it's been stressing me out. Almost every moment of my time is mapped out from now until Sunday night. And it's been that way all week. It's both good and tiring.

Yet another list of good thingsCollapse )

Hello, end of the year crunch time!
