12:33 pm - Details, man! DETAILS!

Every time I take a new commission, I make it clear that I want the commissioner to be specific when it comes to the details behind what they want me to illustrate for them.

So, you can imagine how frustrating it is when I use what is given to me, struggle with getting the idea down on paper, present the sketch to the buyer and hear this...

'It's nice...but I thought it would look like this...'

Really? You couldn't have told me that before I set to work on that piece?

Gonna tell you something, buddy - and it may come as a surprise to you, but...

I'M NOT PSYCHIC!

If there is a specific composition you had in mind; that is part of the details you're supposed to be sharing with me. Coming out and telling me how you thought it should be done after I have spent all that time getting the idea down on paper in a way that makes sense is incredibly irritating! That's several hours of my time wasted because you couldn't do as I requested and be specific!

Now to put my planned works on hold just to spend the next hour or so touching up this sketch. Urgh. XP

11:20 am - How is this so hard to comprehend?

In all the auctions I list, I make it perfectly clear - if you cannot afford the bid price, do not place a bid.

Easy to follow, right?

Guess not.

The one bidder just contacted me and said she had a last minute bill that depleted her resources; so she asked if she could have a two week extension in order to pay for the piece, if she won the auction.

I told her no, and deleted her bid.

Was that cruel of me to do that? I don't believe so. True,last minute expenses can come up - but she can't afford the bid, she's been denied her extension, so there's no reason to keep that bid up (why make someone pay more for an image that the original bidder can't afford to pay herself?)

Not to mention - after some recent run ins with new commissioners bailing when it came time to pay for an image, I'm not inclined to trust any new person to keep their word about paying for something they want; no matter how long they've been an active member on the site.

10:22 am - Well...that's 2 1/2 hours of my life I'll never get back.
Okay, so for anyone who partakes in the occassional comedy act that may pass through their town - if one by the name of 'Friends of Bob and Tom' come around, do yourself a favor and safe your money.

For New Year's Eve, Fuzzy and I had attended this comedy act with a few friends. You'd figure with a few drinks in me, I'd be more inclined to giggle a little more often than say, maybe 5 times in a 2 and a half hour stretch - but no such luck. I just found there was nothing really to laugh at.

I was sitting beside the wife of one of Fuzzy's buddies and she felt it necessary to say just how funny each upcoming act was. 'Ooh, Jen - this guy's really funny! Ooh - you'll like 'this' one; his 'Man' and 'Toddler' songs are just so funny!' - it came to the point I just wanted to tell her to stop lying to me; but lucky her - she laid off after the fourth guy (and oddly enough, the only one she didn't find funny was the guy I actually liked).

Or, who knows? Maybe it's just me and I have a lack of a sense of humor (though, I doubt it - I'm usually one to find off color humor rather hilarious, especially after a few drinks); though these acts (save for maybe two of the five comedians - 6 if you count the drunken MC who was dressed far too young for her age and made an ass out of herself on stage) were dreadful. Their brand of raunchy humor - I found, anyway - was poorly delievered and resulted in my stomach turning in disgust than tickling my funny bone.

So yeah, fair warning - want to see good comedians? Don't waste your money by watching this tour group.

And, in the off chance anyone knows who I'm talking about and find their brand of humor funny - I apologize if I stepped on any toes.

Yah, and...that's it. :)

What type of person do you attract?
Your Result: You attract artsy people!

Those free spirited artists with great imaginations find you interesting. They are usually interesting themselves, so its not a bad thing, but they CAN be a bit wifty and choose odd goals. If you like life to always be a bit 'different' from the norm, but not too extreme in any one direction, these are the people for you. If you seek logical decision making skills and good money management, you may want to change something in the way you appear. Artsy people are fun for adventure and exploring, so, have fun! (smoking weed helps too)

You attract unstable people!
You attract geeks!
You attract Yuppies!
You attract rednecks!

What is your element? [with pics + detailed answeres]




Your element is Water. You have a calm aura around you and are in tune with the world around. You observe it but rarely interfere. Because of your shy and timid nature you will not have so many friends in your life. But then again, large crowds aren't your thing anyway. You are comfortable on your own and are reserved to others who you don't know or know very little of. You know everyone out there does not want to be your friend, and knowing that is good. However, people who don't know you that well thinks that you are cold and distant since you don't want to talk to them. Although you mean no harm, you can't always be perfectly understood in the world. No one can. Life in general are you quite serene with even if there are some things you don't like. Your love-life is not so full of boys/girls, but if you flirted more with the ones you were interested in I'm sure something would happen. The hobbies you choose are calmer ones, you are no party person that likes to drink and make-out with three or more guys/girls in one night. Reading a book or swimming is more your thing.

2:16 pm - My little love sponge! ::cuddles::
Because I feel like bragging - this is my little baby, Tic Tac (aka Ticky). Well, not so little a baby; he's two years old and a little fat ass, but he's my fat ass, damnit - and I love him to bits. XD

Aside from his friendly nature and the fact he just adores getting attention (epecially belly rubs), I just adore his feet. He's one of those multi-toed mutates; eight toes on each front paw and seven on both back ones. His eyes are the freakiest things - don't think you can tell in these images, but his left eye is actually half blue/half yellow while the right is entirely yellow.

Fuzzy and I have a running joke that considering all his genetic abnormalities, Ticky must have absorbed one of his siblings while in the womb.

3:08 pm - Just please, don't half ass it. XP
Finally, they're getting the sewer systems set up in our neighbourhood (the houses here are all hooked up to septic tanks); however, as it stands now, the roads are just shot to shit.

I happen to live in a lesser upkept neighbourhood - not exactly the slums, but nowhere near a country club setting - but just because this neighourhood is not located in the ritzier part of town doesn't mean our roads should be left all misshapen and uneven - the holes paved over just enough to fill in the numerous craters created by the construction equipment and no attention paid to make the surface even halfway level.

I only hope that it's only that way until the houses themselves are hooked up to the mainline - and after that, the county will see to repaving the roads here so it doesn't look so...well, ghetto. If not, they've brought down the market value of this area that much more. ::sighs::

5:03 pm - OOh! A survey thingie! XD
Because I'm not a big fan of sending out these kinds of things through emails (I always feel like I'm sending chainletters and spamming those mailboxes of those whom I call friends), I figured I'll just post this here in my own journal and let whomever wishes to reply to do so on their own merit). ;)

What Type of Person Are You? [pictures + detailed results]




The satisfied - The desireless


Not greedy by nature, the Satisfied knows of what they have achieved and earned, and feels content with that. Materialistic impulses happen rarely, if ever, and they don't value possessions and trends nearly as much as most do. The Satisfied usually have a calm personality and tend to be full of care, whether they are open with it or not. Of course they can be selfish, but their selfless nature proceeds that by far.
Downsides are that the Satisfied may be taken advantage of, in the likes of favours per se. It is in their nature to help, and they can be big push-overs when it's about injustice towards themselves. Also, since they don't want to bother their peers and close ones, they keep most of their problems inside. If this builds up they may start to suffer in silence, a completely unnecessary act.
Because they have a hard time to say no, and since people may use them, with time the Satisfied could grow hateful and distrusting. However, it appears now, that they are not. They reckon that some people are bad news and stay away from them. They stay with their own group of trusted people instead. As the Satisfied's name implies, they don't seem to have any dreams or goals. That is a perception not quite true. As any other human being, they do have them. But the difference is, that the Satisfied are content with their life even if the dream would not come true.
Quote:"It is not length of life, but depth of life." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Because most of my journal entries are either bitchy or dismal, I thought I would post something a little more chipper - though still just as assinine. XD

I can't stop playing with my hair. XP

I'm attempting to grow it out, and the longer it gets, the curlier it gets (inherited the curls from my father's side of the family - one of the things I am thrilled I got from my old man :)). So, now that the hair's just past shoulder length, I'm getting a bunch of ringlet curls at the bottom - which I just love! XD

Funny how I couldn't stand curls in my hair as a child, but am so estatic over them when I'm much older.

Now if only the remainder of my hair can grow out and curl like the rest.

Life is good and bad. You know it can never be

fine with that. You still feel it's important
to live life since it can end any day and not
sulk because of some little failure in life.
You are often a happy person, still you don't
laugh all the time. You have a somewhat calm

you.

My God, I have actually found a use for those damned Victoria Secrets catalogues we've been getting in the mail as of late (why the hell we're getting them in the first place is beyond me, though).

I have no use for these skimpy pairs of underwear that are nothing more than scraps of material to cover the front and a piece of dental floss to fit between your ass cheeks, nor to I give a flying fig about bras that make your bust size bigger.

It's the poses of the models that come in handy, actually (I ignore the faces - half the time they look like they're either consipated or in the midst of an orgasm, which is really gross to see in a clothing catalogue, when you think about it). The poses are great for artistic ideas, though - I've already found a number that would be great for future furry femme/male cheesecake images.

I'm so happy!

You know what I don't get? Why is it that when it comes to relief efforts to help victims in unforseen tragedies (such as in the case of the Tsunami disaster) and money is desparatly needed to help those poor souls, celebrities always hold benefits/fundraisers to raise funds for the relief efforts?

Aren't these people made out of money to begin with? They make ridiculous sums of cash for starring in piss poor movies, TV shows and recording albumns that could make a person's ears bleed. etc, etc. Yet they can't open up their checkbooks, and write out a check for $1 million each instead of making average joes hand out their hard earned money to help out? (not that they shouldn't either, mind you; all the money would be put to good use, but still...)

Considering the number of super rich celebrities there are on this planet, it's not like they can't afford to lose even that sum of money - $1 million is pocket change to them, for Christ's sake. (The only celebrity I respect right now is Sandra Bullock - who made it known that she was donating $1 million to the Red Cross - good for her! She's earned my respect again).

The only reason I can think of that celebrities don't do this is because they're greedy pigs - yup, that's right, greedy little fuckers wuld rather place all their money on material things to show off how rich they are than to put that money to good use and help those in real need of it.

I hate celebrities...XP

Holy crap - I just heard how much a 10 year old, partially eaten grilled cheese sandwich sold for.

$28,000

...for a 10 year old, partially eaten grilled cheese sandwich placed on cotton balls and sealed in a frame, that apparently has the face of the Virgin Mary on it...

...yeah...here's a picture...tell me if you see the Virgin Mary...

The Blessed Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Now see, I'm not going to deny seeing a face in the cooked areas of the sandwich (there IS a face). Is it that of the Virgin Mary? HA! Hell no! At least, not to me, anyway. True, who really knows what the blessed lady really looked like, but if we're going by how she's depicted in statues/paintings/prints/etc, the face looks nothing like her.

Now, if someone were to say that face bore a likeness to, say, Marilyn Monroe, I'd be more inclined to believe it. ::shrugs::

11:59 am - Oh - quit your bitching, you hypocrite! :p
From time to time, I browse through random journals of folks I used to know. And, out of curiosity, I went to check out a journal of one of the guy's I had once been friends with.

I couldn't help but raise an eyebrow when I read his latest journal entry (for anonyminity's (sp?) purposes, he will remained unnamed)...

I thought that maybe his last few movies were an aberration and that afterwards he'd be back to his usual manic self, but after reading this article, I'm convinced Sam Raimi has lost his mind and sold out in the process.

For the love of God, WHY?!?!? George Lucas going back and updating the the special effects of his movies is one thing. Say what you will, at least he knows better than to remake the original Star Wars trilogy. But to go back and remake your own movie? That's asinine. The original Evil Dead was fine as it was in all its low-budget underground glory, and in fact that's a large part of why it's so popular. Besides, Evil Dead 2 was essentially a remake of the first one anyway, albeit with a bigger budget.

It's not enough that he turned Spider-Man into a pussy, now he's going back and remaking a movie that doesn't need to be remade in the first place. He's insane. Either that or he's been replaced by a pod person like in Invasion of the Body Snatchers (which I also believe is what happened to Metallica, BTW). As far as I'm concerned, the Sam Raimi we knew and loved is gone and his last good movie was Army of Darkness. Between this and the Spider-Man movies, he no longer has any credibility.


Just to be clear - I'm all for people having their opinions on things and such - but this is the same guy who came out and spoke down about people who complained about George Lucas making all these unnecessary changes to the Star Wars trilogy (the original trilogy was just fine the way it was in its orignal context - cheezey sci fi effects and all). But here, he comes out and says 'Sam Raimi is out of his mind!!! He has no business re-creating his own property!!' and actually has the audacity to speak for the masses when he says 'the Sam Raimi we knew and loved is gone'. To the writer of that quoted entry - that's merely your opinion and you're entitled to it; but you don't speak for everyone, thanks. :p

The only word that pops into mind with this guy's whinning is - hypocrite! Don't come out and say it's okay in one aspect and not okay in another. It's the same damned scenario, goddamnit!

I'll say (relatively) the same thing he said to the Star Wars fans when they complained about George Lucas' editing the Trilogy - 'It's his property, his license - fuck the fans, he can do whatever the hell he wants with it and you can't do squat about it!'

Thank you :)

I just read a news article about a young man who had gone ahead and killed himself at Ground Zero - people suspect he did it either because of the recent Presidential election (he was rooting for Kerry, and was upset that Bush won) or because of the war in Iraq.

If that's the case - what a fucking looney tunes! The world is better off without demented assholes like him running around in the streets (and yes - I know that sounds very insensitive of me, but you know what? Fuck it! Killing yourself over such things is just fucking irrational - goddamned idiot).

The thing that caught me the most off gaurd was that his supervisor - some chick named Mary Anne Mauney - considered his choice of place to commit suicide (Ground Zero of the World Trade Center) was 'heroic'.

Heroic?! What the fuck is that bitch on? Suicide is not a heroic act - it's a cowardly way out for people who can't handle life's pitfalls. And there's nothing 'heroic' on taking your life at a site where the lives of 2948 people were extinguished (and that's only the number of the confirmed dead - since not all the bodies were found), and not by their choice, either, but by the violent acts of terrorists.

Someone please explain to me how commiting suicide where that many people were massacred is considered heroic?!

seem girlish still with a love of dresses, ponies,

you "too old for". But this doesn't
bother you. You enjoy your youth and are

old as you feel.

Finally! This whole election bullsh*t is finally over with! HOORAY!!

For the record - I didn't care much for either Presidential hopeful (neither really impress me, to be honest), but I found myself interested in the Vice President hopefuls - Edwards and Chenney.

Chenney, by far, was my pick (you just got to respect a senator who can tell someone in the senate to go f*ck himself, heh heh). Not to mention he really impressed me in the debates.

John Edwards, for some reason, reminded me of one of those sleazy car salesmen, who would flash you his winning smile and pour on the charm in order to sell you a real lemon of a deal. In other words - fake.

Watching Kerry's concession speech today was actually pretty funny - swear to God, his wife looked like she was about to break down in a fit of tears as she hid herself in the standing, applauding crowds. Anyone who had seen his live speech can't deny that she was visibly upset.

And, on a side note: Puffy (Puffy Combs, P.Diddy - whatever the hell name you go by now) - maybe when you started your whole 'Vote or Die' campaign, maybe you should've told people who to vote 'FOR'. :p

You have Blue Wings! You are artistic and highly
creative. Others are amazed by your imaginative
ideas, and the way you speak so smoothly. You
are very social, but you like talking
face-to-face, instead of the phone. You love
dancing, Writing, acting, drawing, singing,
anything that requires artistic style. You have
many friends, and are popular because of your
unique style. Though your jokes crack up
everyone around you, you often daydream about
many different things, lost in your own world.
Even though, you are optimistic, and remain

Oh, how 'exciting'! God, I hate George Lucas! XP

For a little while now, there was rumors going around that George Lucas was going to be making even more edits to the original Star Wars Trilogy - adding little changes so Episodes 4,5 and 6 would tie in better with his crappy prequels, plus a few extras.

Turns out, it was fact. F*ck!! XP

A few of the changes I know of.

The scene at the cantina, where the laser shootout takes place between Han and Greedo, it's now been edited so that it looks like both shooters take their marks at the same time. Um, why did this need to be changed?

The one that seriously pisses me off, though, is this - Instead of the reformed Anakin standing with Yoda and Obi Wan Kenobi at the end of 'Return of the Jedi', it'll be an aged Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker - prior to his Darth Vader phase).

WHY?!!!

Seriously, why the f*ck does Lucas think that the original trilogy needs all these changes (because I'm sure there's more than just the two listed above). It's just fine the way it is! Greedo shot first, missed, and got canned by Han - it's history! Don't f*ck with history!

And switching old Anakin with young Anakin - why the hell should that change be made?! It makes no f*cking sense! Possibly it'll be explained that the spirit has the youthful appearance because Anakin officially died prior to the Darth Vader phase, but if you think about it, Darth Vader had also been brought back to the light side of the force (with Luke's help) prior to his death - so Anakin had been reborn prior to his death, so the old version of Anakin makes logical sense.

The whole 'Youthful Anakin Spirit' thing has got me wondering if the second half of that rumor was true (this being that while Luke smiles happily at the three ghosts, Padme Amidala's spirit stands behind him, giving him a hug and smiling at the other spirits as well). That second half part of the rumor made me want to vomit - that's just too damned cutsey poo. XP

You know what changes I wanted to see in the DVD version? Deleted scenes re-added into the movie - like the scenes at Toshi Station, Luke's interaction with Biggs Darklighter, and whatever else was thrown to the cutting room floor. I don;t want tie ins and unnecessary add ons to something that was just perfect the way it was.

There's also a rumor that there will be a 7, 8 and 9 made. ::shudders:: And since George Lucas ignored all the books that described incidents that happened before the original trilogy (all of which that he gave his stamp of approval to), chances are, the awesome stories that had been written about incidents that took place after ROTJ will also be promptly ignored and re-written to Lucas' liking. True, it's his franchise, he can do what he wants with it - but if a history has already been established and accepted by the fanbase, why in the world would you want to risk pissing off your fanbase and truning people against something that was once hugely accepted?

As far as I'm concerned, the prequels (and potential sequels) are non-existant to me. The only ones that exist (and matter) are the original trilogy - unedited, un-remastered, original format.

theOtaku.com: What Inuyasha Hero Are You?

Hmmm...I think that's a pretty accurate result for me (although, Kagome annoys me - too cutsey poo and nicey nice. Blah!)



theOtaku.com: What Inuyasha Villain Are You?

Yeah, I got Sesshoumaru-sama! Although, his description doesn't describe me at all. I would suppose that is a good thing, eh? (I just love them moody guys with long hair - whee!) ;)

At any rate, about the entry heading, if the following isn'ty proof enough that Paris Hilton is a complete bubble head, nothing will.

After making a huge fuss over her missing Chihuahua - Tinkerbell - and making all these ;Lost Dog' flyers and offering a five thousand dollar reward for anyone who found her dog - turns out, the dog was never lost to begin with.

Where was she? At paris' grandparents place - they were watching Tinkerbell for their dimwitted granddaughter and she 'forgot'.

...

How the HELL do you forget someone is babysitting your dog for you?!

I'll say it again - Paris Hilton is the living stereotype of a bleach blond bubble head! :p

May she be heckled for weeks because of her sheer stupidity.

12:20 pm - PETA is at it again ::rolls eyes::
My random quizilla result of the day...

HASH(0x88541fc)
Ghost or spirit: You are a lost soul. Very calm and
sweet, you are often the one who asks: What if?
With a clever mind, you want to explore the
world on a different level. Without the
answers, you aren't ready to move on. You are
most likely very creative and find yourself
thinking things through on a different level.

To protest against KFC for their apparent cruelty to chickens, PETA will be passing out bloody buckets of chicken...to children (they plan to do this outside of the stores and at playgrounds nearby).

Contents of Bucket 'O Blood include: a bag of fake blood and bones, a bloodied plastic chicken and a cardboard caricature of a blood-spattered Colonel Sanders holding a butcher knife toward a terrified-looking chicken.

For the whole story, here's a link to the online news artcile...

PETA Ups Anti-KFC Campaign With 'Blood'

Got to love the fact that these vegan freaks want to traumatize little children by forcing buckets of fake blood and chicken parts on them. Have they no shame?! (that's a rhetorical question, I already know they don't). I really hope that the stores/school administrations take heed and place some sort of security/law enforcement to prevent these nutjobs from traumatizing these kids.

Either that, or some angry parents track some of these PETA freaks down and teach them to mess with their kids' heads.

I'm all for being vegetarian and all, but when you try to push your view on innocent children, that's just going too far.

10:43 am - Foamy is my Lord and Master! :D
In a better mood today, thankfully. So, here's my random quizilla result of the day...

Silver Dragon
You are a silver dragon. The rarest kind of dragon.
You are noble yet avoid humans as much as
possible. You are the guardian of the
defensless and you rule the skies.



Which Dragon resides in your soul? (cool pictures!)

Now, as for the topic...

My fiancee sent me a link to this website that is one of the funniest flash animation toon series that I have ever seen - all starring the hilarious (and bluntly honest) squirrel, Foamy and his owner, a goth chick named Germaine.

All hail, the new Lord and Master: Foamy!!

I think the folks who made these series of humor animation are brilliant. Foamy is just hilarious! (a little hard to understand at first due to his erratic way of talking - imagine The Chipmunks loaded on caffeine. But you get accustomed to it after a bit and he becomes easier to understand). I haven't had such a good chuckle since the Dave Chappelle Slow Mo skit (and that was pretty funny in itself, but it all comes down to personal tatstes, really, so not everyone would find the Foamy animations that funny. Ah well, can't like everything in life, right? ;))

But, if you happen to check the link out to see what it's all about, I highly recommened the following for a good chuckle: 'Small, Medium, Large', 'Almost Serious Suicide','Foamy's Rant II', and 'Free Your Mind' - those were my personal faves (although, they're all worth having a peek at').

current mood: amused

I was rooting for a Pippin answer (he's my fave), but Merry will do in a pinch (I like my Hobbits cute and a little dumb - hee hee). ;)

I doubt there would be that there would be that many people who would miss me, just for the fact that I don't know that many people - common sense/logic, ya know?

Okay, so what to gripe about today...

The whole Micheal Jackson thing that's going on. Looks like the freak is going to get off scott free from these recent allegations of child molestation. Apparently turns out that the accuser, his siblings and his mother had signed a document that stated that nothing happened to the boy while he visited Jackson at the NerverLand Ranch (I think that's what this document was, anyway. Not sure when this document was signed prior to these allegations coming into the public eye, or not).

So that means that, if the judge finds these allegations false (due to the document and if the prosecuters have no other hard core evidence against the singer), Jackson is aquitted of all charges and he's free to go back to his everyday life.

I mean, crap!!

Folks (whether his family, friends or fans) come out and say that Jackson is innocent and that he's just eccentric, he's this way because he never got a chance to live his childhood and blah, blah, blah. But come on! There's eccentric, and then there's just, well...I don't know what to describe Jackson's lifstyle as - but I wouldn't describe it as being merely eccentric.

I mean, what would you think if an average Joe/Jane came out and willing admitted that/or was discovered that...

- they firmly believe they're a 14 year old trapped in a 45 year old's body

- that they consider themselves to be the living embodiment of Peter Pan

- that they share their bedroom/bed with underage children, that aren't even their own children to begin with (claiming nothing sexual happens, there's just nothing more loving than sharing your bed - it's all just very sweet and innocent).

- that they have a secret compartment in the back of there closet that holds a small room filled with pictures of children 9again, not their own kids).

- that they have a secret staircase, lined with ragdolls that lead up to a windowless bedroom (I found that rather creepy - what would someone need something like that for anyway?)

Chances are, any average Joe/Jane who came out with this kind of admissions or was discovered having such hidden things would be either be in prison or a psyche ward/be psychologically evaluated.

But because it's Micheal Jackson, we're suppose to sympathize/pity him and the hell he's going through, we're to believe he's like this because he didn't have a childhood and his actions are his way of recapturing that and that he's completely innocent and that all these recent allegations are nothing more than a modern day lynching (according to Jackson's brother - Jermaine, who believes these accusations were brought out because his broter is loved and he's 'black'.

Can we say bullsh*t?

Which Beautiful Amy Brown Fairy Are You? (with pretty pics)
brought to you by Quizilla

Okay, so I was reading this article about a woman who was sentenced to three months of house arrest and fined $300. And do you know why? Because she decided to follow her husband's orders and breastfeed her baby while driving to 'save time' (the woman was going 65 mph down the turnpike and was spotted by a trucker who alerted 911 of this blatantly reckless behavior).

And the funniest thing about all this, the woman is trying to appeal the charges because, according to her religion, she did nothing wrong (the practices of her religion states that the wife must obey her husband without question - no matter what the consequences). And she was found innocent of child endangerment.

WTF?!

That is just nuts! Why is it that whenever the religion card is played in cases like this, charming folks like this pair get away with nothing more than a slap on the wrists (the only other case I can think of that had to do with religious beliefs was that woman who refused to get her photo taken without her face being concealed because showing her face was against her religion. Then she nerve to raise a stink because she wanted her driver's license and the DMV refuses to grant her one because she refused to get her photo taken).

And the fact that the woman isn't getting charged with child endangerment. It's law that an infant child is to be strapped safely in a carseat. Placing the child between you and the steering wheel so you can breastfeed them while speeding down a turnpike to 'save time' is child endangerment. How can any judge not find that to be harmful to the child? What, because mommy was holding the baby? I doubt that if it were anyone else who wasn't devoutly religious would get off so easy.

Why couldn't the mother just pull over at a rest stop or wait until she reached her destination to feed the baby? Was it really that difficult to do, or would she get beaten for questioning her husband's demands? Both parents should be charged for reckless/child endangerment

I pity that poor child - being raised to believe that her husband is God and that you do as you're told no matter what the circumstances/consequences, etc, etc. That's just...wrong!
