Slow Down

As I was driving home from therapy, I got behind a navy and silver SUV. I was thinking how great the colors looked together and why there aren’t more two tones cars. Eventually, I realized that it was a State Trooper. So glad I wasn’t tailgating. HA! So, as we’re traveling along the same road, I come upon my exit, or rather on ramp, and the trooper wants over. I motion for her/him to come on over and s/he does. We circle around the ramp and approach the interstate. Just as we get to the spot where its time for us to merge into the other lanes, this little silver sedan goes flying by at top speed. I thought to myself immediately, “Bad timing, Dude.” The trooper and I both merge rather effortlessly. I hold back from my usual shot forward, because I ain’t trying to catch a ticket. Low and behold, the trooper shot forward. At first, I thought s/he was just bolting forward because s/he can. Then I saw it. The lights started flashing and as I got closer, s/he had indeed chased down the silver sedan and was pulling it over.
In that moment, I couldn’t help but think how much a single minute in our lives can make a difference. If the silver sedan had been one minute behind us, maybe…. If the trooper had been one minute faster…if I had been one minute faster or slower, would I have been the one getting the ticket? Naturally that made me think of how fast things move in Second Life. I don’t move as quickly as most and I suppose that’s why I have remained single all this time. I know what I like. I know what I don’t like. I know myself well enough to know whether or not I’m going to be romantically compatible with people fairly quickly. I think I tend to move a bit quickly with friendships and trust friends more than I should, but I’m not ready to change either of those things about myself. Not just yet, but I think we could all benefit by take a moment to slow down. The internet isn’t going anywhere. Second Life isn’t a race and collecting partners is not the goal. I think its more important to share love and laughter as often as possible…and THAT is what I’m all about.

My Next Life

I was just watching this movie, Jexi, and it had me laughing so hard. The jist of the movie is that instead of Siri, Alexa, Cortana, or Bixby, this phone’s AI was named Jexi. Turns out that Jexi is a real smartass. Now, in my next life, I want to be a smartass, psycho phone AI. I recommend this movie for the comic value alone. Jexi is super honest and call him on his shit. Actually, I think more men…well, people in general could use a Jexi…or a SADY in their lives! *bursts into giggles* I mean, my friends can tell you that I would have way too much fun doing that. Okay, so its a great feel good movie and its silly. It’s a bit of a romantic comedy, but its not all that romantic. It actually has a pretty decent message. If you get a chance to watch it, do it!

Setting the Table

I have a serious weakness for dining room sets in Second Life. Growing up, my mother always set an immaculate table. She did this daily, for our nightly dinners. She would say that presentation was as important as the taste. For special occasions, she went completely nuts, breaking out the fine china. We actually had two sets of fancy china, real silver silverware, and a complete set of crystal goblets for every type of drink. The way she set a table made it seem like we were one of those rich families, but we weren’t. My father was a soldier and my mother was a nurse. Still today, even though we never have any one over for dinner, she will set the table for special occasions. If we do have company, she’s breaking out the place mats, matching table clothes, and of course the crystal goblets.

This Look

I don’t know about other people, but I have a really difficult time with hair fitting on my genus head. However, Stealthic is one of the few stores that I know without a doubt will fit perfectly every time. Lucky for me, he just released this gorgeous hair, Brink. It paired perfectly with this fantastic Penelope outfit from Addams. While I’ve worn the complete set together here, I love that the jacket can be worn without the top and the top without the jacket. As my friend, Sassy, always says, “Fatpack is my favorite color.” With that said, the fatpack affords you sooooo many options, plus each piece can be worn separately. So, you can wear these items with stuff from other stores and make a look that is genuinely unique to your style.
I know it’s kinda rare that I actually talk about the items I’m wearing, but I’m kinda thinking I might start talking about them a bit more going forward. I won’t go into details on everything in a photo…like ever! But sometimes its nice to share the details about the stuff we love. Who knows, maybe its just the little details you’ll need to decide whether or not this look is for you.

The Other Side

I don’t want to know who we are without each other
It’s just too hard
I don’t want to leave here without you
I don’t want to lose part of me
Will I recover?
That broken piece, let it go and unleash all the feelings

Did we ever see it coming?
Will we ever let it go?

We are buried in broken dreams
We are knee-deep without a plea
I don’t want to know what it’s like to live without you
Don’t want to know the other side of a world without you

Is it fair, or is it fate?
No one knows
The stars choose their lovers, save my soul
It hurts just the same
And I can’t tear myself away

Did we ever see it coming?
Will we ever let it go?

We are buried in broken dreams
We are knee-deep without a plea
I don’t want to know what it’s like to live without you
Don’t want to know the other side of a world without you

Let’s Taco ’bout You

If you’ve been in Second Life for any substantial amount of time, then you’ve had someone get all up in your business. You’ve had someone watching your every move. You’ve had someone hate you for no rational reason. You’ve had someone make you out to be something you’re not. This happens to all of us at some point in time. Hell, some of us even experience this in real life. I really don’t know what happens to a person to make them behave in such an obsessive manner. We’ve all been hurt and betrayed at some point in our lives. So, I have a really hard time wrapping my brain around what makes someone so consumed with other people’s lives that they allow it to rob them of their own joy. It’s actually quite sad, really. Can you imagine wasting so much of your energy on someone you don’t like and constantly trying to justify your actions to yourself?
Maybe you’re one of those that gets in other people’s business or stalks them or hates someone for no rational reason. To those that do the watching and hating, I have one thing to say, “Just maybe if you paid as much attention to your own life, your own business, you would have a life worth living. Until you do learn to mind your own business, enjoy the show, cuz the light in my life shines far too bright for me to be worried about you.”
I’ve said it many times in the past and I’m sure I’ll say it again, “If you’re not feeding me, financing me, or fucking me…your opinion of me does not matter, nor do you get a say.” So, keep talking about me, keep accusing me, keep watching me, keep hating me….as for me? Well, its Tuesday…and I’m having tacos, Baby! Of course, I wrapped this all up with Taco Tuesday. *laughs* Did you expect anything less?

Hot Water

If you have a Facebook account in either of your lives, you have probably seen those 20-50 question thingies that ask about your favorite food, Coke or Pepsi, tattoos, showers or baths and so on. Though I take more showers than baths, purely for convenience if I was ever forced to choose just one I would choose baths without hesitation. There’s something so relaxing about sitting in a tub of hot water. I cannot imagine not having the option. Once again this is a great way to enjoy Second Life in ways I could never enjoy real life. The idea of bathing outside in a beautiful little area is so majestic and romantic. Of course, I cannot begin to imagine doing such a thing in real life unless I knew I had complete and total privacy.

Eat, drink and be merry

We were above
You standing underneath us
We were not yet lovers
Dragons were smoked
Bumblebees were stinging us
I was soon to be crazy

Eat, drink and be merry
For tomorrow we die
‘Cause we’re tripping Billies

We’re wearing nothing
Nothing but our shadows
Shadows falling down on the beach sand
Remembering once
Out on the beaches we wore
Pineapple grass bracelets

So why would you care
To get out of this place
You and me and all our friends
Such a happy human race
‘Cause we’re tripping Billies

We are all sitting
Legs crossed round a fire
My yellow flame she dances
Tequila drinking oh our
Minds will wonder
To wondrous places

So why would you care
To get out of this place
You and me and all our friends
Such a happy human race

Eat, drink and be merry
For tomorrow we die

Him and I

Cross my heart, hope to die
To my lover, I’d never lie
He said “be true,” I swear I’ll try
In the end, it’s him and I
He’s out his head, I’m out my mind
We got that love, the crazy kind
I am his, and he is mine
In the end, it’s him and I, him and I
