The World of Teh Minx


Cat, creativity, art journaling, CFIDS, fibromyalgia and whatever else rattles my demented mind.

raindrops-of-the-insane said: Do you guys believe that disabled parking spots are just for the visibly disabled or do you think that both people with visible and invisible disabilities have a right to use them?

colorsofsocialjustice:

The latter. 

A good example would be my mother, who has fibromyalgia, and only uses her disabled permit on her bad days. But then, I also have invisible disabilities, my weight issues notwithstanding, and, if I could drive, would do the same.

Yes. Please keep in mind that some disabilities are NOT visible. Think before you judge.

It’s time again

"Tunak Tunak Tun" (Punjabi: ਤੁਣਕ ਤੁਣਕ ਤੁਣ) or "Tunak", is a bhangra/pop love song by Indian artist Daler Mehndi released in 1998. At the time, critics complained that Mehndi’s music was only popular due to his videos that featured beautiful women dancing. Mehndi’s response was to create a video that featured only himself.

also gosh the lyrics to this are actually really sweet & great i never realised

I must listen to this over and over.

~~~~~~……———******PIZZA BROOCH GIVEAWAY!******———……~~~~~~

Hey there! You probably like pizza, right? I mean, who doesn’t like pizza? (If you don’t, it’s ok, I still like you….I’m nice like that.)

Well, you might also like wearing cute brooches/pins on your clothing/backpack/purse/etc. 

I have combined the two! YES! It’s true! 

Ok, so you can’t eat the brooch. Also, it doesn’t taste like pizza when you lick it. It’s just a picture of a pizza. But it’s still pretty cool, right?

Well, one of these brooches can be yours simply by reblogging this post! YUP! That’s all!

The winner will be notified on Monday, August 4th. Winner chooses which color heart they’d like - and I have a bunch more colors than just those that are listed! Purple, blue, black, etc. Just let me know what color heart you’d like to have, and I’ll let you know if I have it! :)

In the meantime, feel free to check out my Etsy shop, where I sell a bunch of other rad brooches, as well as jewelry and plus size skirts in adorable prints! Just click here. Right here. Yup! 

So get to rebloggin’ so one of these fancy brooches can be in your hands soon! 

A pizza pin! With a heart! A pizza on a heart!

Reading this now.  My therapist recommended it & it is a very helpful, quick read.  It helps with those of us who have issues with parental guilt & manipulation.  It’s purpose is to help you regain your self worth & develop new ways to interact.

One of the best books I’ve ever read. It literally changed my life.
Anyone who thinks they may have been abused in any way by a parent or caregiver should read this book. 

please share.

I wish there were a way to download this book. I want it, but I don’t want my parents to find it. :/

Passing this along for people who need it!

That dropbox link doesn’t work for me, but this one does:

Not sure I agree with everything in the book, but it might be useful to some people.  (I’m still reading it.  I’m not huge into some of the therapy stuff, but it makes some good points, too.)
One warning, by the way:  The book sometimes seems to make it sound like parents with chronic illnesses or mental illnesses are somehow abandoning their children or “forcing their children to be adults/caretakers” just by being sick.  So… if you’re disabled, be aware of that before reading.  I’ve heard that line a lot before, I didn’t know it probably was popularized in this book.

Thanks for this! Thank you so much. Will read with the chronic illness caveat in mind.

Okay, here’s the deal: I re-opened my commissions in hope that people will ask me to draw something for them for a decent sum of cash. My girlfriend, Molly, is going to climb out of her hole and come up to Montreal where I, the Miniature Horse, reside. 

The thing is, trips are pretty expensive and even though I worked out as cheap a budget as possible, it’s still costing us 913$. This is all for one person, this doesn’t account for my own expenses of travel and food in the city. My current situation is that I’m unemployed by feverishly seeking work, however even if I can land a job before she arrives I will not be paid until she leaves to go back home. I receive only enough money each month to pay my rent and have 100$ left over for my phone bill, transit, and food. I have 75$ in savings and well I’m not sure how long that’ll last.

Molly is currently working, however even if she works every single day full-time she wouldn’t be able to cover the cost of the trip. We’re debating shortening to visit so that we cut the expenses in half, since what’s really costing us right now is her lodging and her bus ride up here. Both she and I are taking commissions, and while my selection of examples is pretty meagre and pitiful (I don’t have a lot of to show considering I never had time in the past to draw), I hope it gives an okay idea of what you’d receive.

These are really low prices, especially for a full painting, but I’ll take as many commissions as I can in order to garnish our budget. Of course, if you’re so generous as to just drop off a couple dollars without asking for a drawing, that’s definitely something we’ll take! My paypal e-mail is vivarnell@hotmail.com, or you can visit my blog for the donation link on my sidebar. I really hate asking for donations, I really hate the idea of even making an “emergency commissions” post, but everything helps.

For prices:

(Not shown, sorry, didn’t have good examples ready) sketches - 5$

Coloured sketches - 10$

Lineart (not coloured) - 15$

Cell-shaded Illustration- 25$

Full painting - 40$

Reblogs very, very appreciated!

*urges people to reblog because i only got one commission so far*

*urges again*

Signal Boosting. Hoping one or two of my eight followers can help.

How I feel about religion. God should be presented as what he is, love and kindness. Stop using his name to justify your racism, homophobia and sexism

I’m not religious, but this comic is flipping adorable.


This is what life is about.
