I’m so sorry it took me so long to post these pics, but life in general… well let’s just say that I’m trying to figure out how to function without mom.
But a promise is a promise, so here they are the pics of your sugar skulls from Día de Muertos. Thank you for your patience!!!

Hello darlings! I hope everybody is doing great!

As you know, in November 2nd, we Mexicans celebrate Día de Muertos where we dedicate home altars to our departed. We also give each other sugar skulls as a way to “trick” the Aztec goddess of Death, Mictlantecuhtli, into letting us live for another year.

So as you know, every year I buy little sugar skulls and name them after any LJ flister who wants and them put them on my own home altar.

So far I have listed pride_of_erin, cmk418, lisacali and luci_2 for a calaca.

 Drop me a comment if you want me to dedicate a sugar calaca to you and what name would you like to appear on it or if you 'd like your user name on them instead. Like this:

'Helloh March, I'd like to have one named Chiquita Banana'

Or if you prefer it, you can drop me an email at marthashalala at gmail.com

The offer expires October 30th. for the celebration in México starts in November 1 st.

So THAT time of the year has come again, yes, it’s sugah skulls timez again!!!

I know I’m not at LJ all that much, but I don’t want this sort of tradition I have with you to disappear. This wil actually be the6th. Year of the Día de Muertos  ‘LJ Sugah Skulls fiesta and I couldn’t be more happier.

For those of you who don’t know or don’t remember, every year I offer to buy sugars skulls, name them after my flisters and put them in my home altar in Día de Muertos (November 2nd.). Here is a more lengthier explanation from the post of last year, the one before that and the one before that.

I’m making the list early this year so I don’t have to run two days before the festivities :D The offer expires October 30, 'coz I need time to buy them.

Drop me a comment if you want me to dedicate a sugar calaca to you and what name would you like to appear on it or if you 'd like your user name on them instead. Like this:

'Helloh March, I'd like to have one named Chiquita Banana'

Or if you prefer it, you can drop me an email at marthashalala at gmail.com


This is how they look, remember is nothing morbid, just a very creepy way we Mexicans have to wish for a happy long life to our loved ones.

You know where to find me!

I know it’s been a long time since I last wrote.

It’s been an incredible difficult month. I lost my mom on August 30th. to a Klebsiella infection. That’s a bacteria you get when you are in hospital. She wasn’t that sick when she got there, and then… she was just gone.
In the weeks that have followed I’ve changed jobs and lost friendships.

I feel completely devastated. I’m not trying to pretend my relationship with mom was perfect; you know it wasn’t. But still she was my mom and we loved each other in our own way.

I’m trying to figure out who am I.  Many of the big decisions of my life were taken in function of my mom and making her proud of me. So now… now I don’t know where do I go from here.

Thank you for everything, Mamá.

Dear peeps,

I’ve been absent this couple of months because my mum has been very sick. She’s been in hospital for the last month with no signs of getting any better.

She has an acute cystitis and a very low platelet count and doctors can’t seem to find what’s the cause of it.

To be honest I’m dead tired; I go visit her at hospital before work, then go to the office and spend the next 8 hour straight working without a break and the come home and do house work.  Also right no, my IBS is acting like nobody’s business and the man I always thought as the love of my life just got married.

So yeah, I’ve quite the couple of months.

Please send good vibes to my family; Mom seems to be giving up and about to let herself die.  And I don’t know how to help her or inspire her.

Hope everything is going OK in yer lives and if you need me, you can reach me herea and at Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.

I spent two nights in the ER due an acute pain in my abdomen. Turns out my gallbladder is filled to the brim with stones and I have what appears to be a rather big ovarian cyst… only it might be something entirely different.

As far as I know it could be cancer… or it could be just a bad case of PMS. Next week I will have all my tests. I’ve been living in pain for two years; I can’t afford private care and the Mexican health system is good once you get to the specialists. In the mean time you get to die in an ocean of assholes pencil pushers.

Today I also found that the man I’ve always considered the love of my life or the one that got away is getting married. I let myself get close to him again even tho I knew nothing good would come of it.

I’m scared, depressed and just plain lonely. I can’t talk about my fears with my family. Mom shuts off the minute I start talking about my health, my brother travels a lot, it seems that my friends just care about their own problems. I’m just very sacred.

Tomorrow, May 10th., is Mother’s Day in México and I just wanted to say to all the amazing moms in my FList that you rock and that if one day I’m lucky enough to be haf the mother you all are, I’d be very honored.

¡Feliz Día de las Madres!

I'm Catholic but I'm too liberal. I sing in a choir and have been to more retreats  than I can count , but I also believe that love glorifies the Lord no matter what form it takes and that priests should be able to exercise their ministry while having a partner .

My Church condemns many things I do not, so strange to me some spiritual dissonance and internal conflict in trying to reconcile my faith with my civil sense are not so strange.

This comes up because the recent canonization of John Paul II has been one the biggest controversies that my faith has faced.

For me, the pontiff committed the sin of omission. Knew about pedophile priests, specifically the shamefully mexican Marcial Maciel, and made no big deal about them. He met with Pinochet, attacked and almost wiped out the proponents of liberation theology . He closed the doors to homosexuals.

All highly questionable acts not only for a Catholic, but for any human being.

The whole week I was in prayer trying ti understand how this man inspired me,  was so imperfect and so not indicated for holiness.

All my Cherik feels!!!

·         Charles all woodstocky and hippie at the beginning  (whatever happened to the school?!)

·         Kashmir? Hell yeah!

·         The Beast/Wolverine feelings are so powerful in this one. This pleases me.

·         Mystique is going to work with the X Men? Methinks she is going to betray ‘em.

·         How Charles went from ‘there is good in you’ to ‘that man is a monster’?

·         Pietro, how do you and Logan know each other?

·         Charles punches Erik and then they proceed to have sweaty monkey make up lurv. That’s my head canon.

Hello thar, friends!  Hope you are doing all right!

Things here have been the same. I’m still in a job I like but with a she -monster  of a boss and but I took the week of for the first time in two years!

The reason being is that I’m sick, I’ve been struggling for two years with an illness that makes me puke my heart out every now and then and then inflates my stomach like a bloody zeppelin, a very hurtful zeppelin.

 I might have a hiatal hernia o something else (what else? I don’t want to even consider right now). Chances are I might need surgery and docs are going to take a biopsy to discard any more dreadful illnesses.

Why I have been suffering for two whole years?Collapse )

Dear peeps, tomorrow I have a job interview for a position as Web Content Editor in a magazine that could mean changing my life for the better.

It could mean a 9 – 5 pm schedule, with weekends and holydays and enough money to pay my student loans and actually move out of my mother’s house.  God knows I love her, but I need to get away from her.

I need to cry about men, work, and friends not because my mother thinks me a whore because I went to the movies with 3 male friends or because she thinks I’ll die alone.

So please, *PLEASE* sende me good vibes because I really need them.


PS. I’m gonna send the labels I used in the sugar skulls with my Holyday cards, so you can have at least that.

This has been a very strange year. In one hand, nothing has real y happened, it's been a dull 2013, but in the other hand things might actually chance for the better in a couple of weeks. So there is that.

Mother called me a puta for gong to the movies with three male friends. I loved Thor 2.

Btw, finaly went to a terapist. Don't actually know how I feel right now.
