Is Paul McCartney DEAD?

My brother Matt was telling me about this film called Paul McCartney Really Is Dead: The Last Testament Of George Harrison. I was intrigued to watch it last night on Netflix and I was really in shock but then I felt bewildered ..... I don't know, it all makes sense but what the heck did I just watch? Now can I blame Faul for the breakup instead of Yoko Ono? This is a documentary worth watching .... or at least it will get you to revisit your music collection of all the Beatles album art and lyrics.

Two things I love today!

Today I got around to organizing my jewelry and my make-up :)

So Be It!

My 8 Hours with The Invisible Man

So I went to Texas Art Supply yesterday and this is what I bought for $20.00
The Invisible Man

To my surprise I opened the box and was SHOCKED that I had to hand paint all the organs and veins!
But Keanu was happy so I had to be too!

I can't resist his cute little face :)

This is what it looks like out of the box

I started painting the organs

hours into it I was almost done painting and glazing the organs

Then I had to hand paint the veins..... NOT FUN!!!!

Keanu helped me assemble and glue the skeletal part ... but I had super glue all OVER my hands :)

I was so excited to almost finish
I started at 1pm and now it was 9pm
and his genital area forget it ... it kept falling down his legs :)

Yes .... I was DONE ...ooops!
I forgot to add the rib cage!!!
I said forget it ...leave it as is!!!

It looked really cool next to all my oddities!
I love it!

Was it worth 8 hours YES and I had fun spending time with my Keanu :)

P.S. I bought my penis bones from the Evolution Store today!
I will share them when they get here!!!

I'm saving my money to buy .... More Oddities!

As we all know I have started collecting strange things this past year. So to grow my collection of oddities I am saving my money for these creatures and things :) Just the other day someone gave me a Bull's ball sack skin .... if that makes ANY sense :) It still has hair on it, but I see those at gift shops around Texas. I still love anything that is strange ..... I want to try to make the animal penis bones into a necklace soon, or is that too strange? Who cares right .... I am who I am!

Holistic Medicine

Over the past two months I have been using holistic medication and it has done wonders for me! I see a wonderful doctor once a week for treatments. I have had many HORRIBLE experiences with regular antibiotics that I almost died. I also suffer from panic and anxiety and these natural medications have helped me so much!

This is my table with all my natural medication
The drops are not very tasty but they have done wonders!

Just wanted to share :)

The Diaries of JAR

Good idea or bad idea to reopen my box of diaries from my life? I didn't allow myself to read through them but in some entries I had to .... from the death of an ex-boyfriend to the day I found out Keanu was going to be born with a birth defect. (BAD ENTRIES) but I discovered all my old concert stubs and a tape of my late Grandpa Rivas interviewing Billy and I back in 1983 :) It was good to hear his voice again! Thank god I have a tape player!!! I don't keep a diary anymore but this blog is sort of like one.

Trying to figure out Baby names

I really wanted to name him Thurston Rivas
after Thurston Moore from Sonic Youth.... but Keanu won!!!

The day I met with Keanu's Surgeon before he was born
to prepare me for his plastic reconstructive surgery at 1 month old :(

This is the day that I found out through the ultra sound that Keanu had a Cleft Lip and Cleft Palette :(
Not a good day!!!
I cut this out of a Transworld Skateboard Mag. and I had it tattooed on my right ankle :)

My entry about Sept. 11th 2001

The tape I found

This is when I was 22 yrs old living in my first apt.
