Ain’t no rental

Independent, athletic
I been sweating, doing calisthenics
Booty vicious, mind yo business
I been working, working on my fitness
I’ve been lifting heavy metal
See this ass? Ain’t no rental
Take it down low like just stretching
Pick it back up like I’m flexing
Woo, tryna get it, working on my fitness
Think about how I’m gonna feel when I step up on the catwalk
Think about how I’m gonna feel when I got that ass that don’t stop
That ass that don’t stop, that ass don’t stop
And think about how I’m gonna feel when I take it all off

It all comes back to you

Do you believe in Heaven above?
Do you believe in love?
Don’t tell a lie, don’t be false or untrue
It all comes back to you
Open fire, on my burning heart
I’ve never been lucky in love
My defenses are down
A kiss or a frown
I can’t survive on my own
If a girl walks in and carves her name in my heart
I’ll turn and run away
Everyday we’ve all been led astray
It’s hard to be lucky in love
It gets in your eyes, it’s making you cry
Don’t know what to do, don’t know what to do
You’re looking for love
Calling Heaven above
Send me an angel
Send me an angel
Right now, right now

Paw to the Jaw

I love my cat. I really do, but I’m starting to understand why people prefer dogs. I woke up this morning to a paw to the jaw. Yep, that’s right, he walked on my face. My reaction was a slinging arm which resulted in a cat flung across the bed, followed by a soft murr. This was not a wounded cat sound. Trust me, I’ve heard plenty of those noises. Step on a cat’s tail just once and  you’ll never forget it. No, just three little gentle murrs. I couldn’t go back to sleep at this point. I had to get up and find out if he was okay. I’m not a monster, ya know? He’s fine. Once he saw that I was awake, his attitude suddenly changed. I swear that he looked at me and in his little meow language said, “Oh, you’re up! Feed me?”
Needless to say, I fed the little bastard and now he’s lying comfortably on his perch, licking himself. I’m pretty sure he’s quite proud of himself this morning. *looks out the window* FFS, the sun isn’t even up yet. I suspect there’s a nap in my future.

So much going on

So, this week has been a lot. I’ve had some really crappy things happen in RL that I won’t talk about right now, because…reasons. On the upside, my big slister, Kess Crystal….erhm…Kess MASSIMO,  got married yesterday and I couldn’t be happier for her. I’m not sure I would ever find any man she dated truly worthy of her, but she is happy and I’ve not seen her love a man this hard in a very long time. He makes her laugh more than he makes her cry. Which says a lot, cuz even I can make her cry. WHAT? I meant happy tears, damnit! I’m not THAT mean to my sisters….sheesh. Anyway, they had a private ceremony yesterday and it was truly beautiful. And anyone that knows me, knows how much I loathe weddings. So, when I say it was beautiful, I mean it. I would say it was the second most beautiful wedding I’ve attended on the grid. The prettiest was when Posh married Just D. THAT wedding was more my style, so naturally I favor that one. It was almost what I would want if I was forced into having a wedding of my own. Yes, I said FORCED. OMG, I cannot stay on track…ok, so love is in the air, ok? OK! I’m happy for my sisters, one got married and I’m pretty sure my other one is falling in love. Let’s just hope my little sister doesn’t drag me into a wedding, too.
Meanwhile, I’m showing off some of the amazing finds from Kustom9 with a backdrop you can grab at Access. I used to associate Luas with lingerie, but they’re doing some really cute clothes these days and for the Legacy body, too! So be sure to check them out! And Paleto is new to me, but they are coming in hot with some amazing backdrops. So, if you love photography, this is definitely a store to check out. And while this photo isn’t really close enough for you appreciate the details of things like lashes & lipstick…I listed them, because I was wearing them and they are gorgeous. I swear, there is so much goodness out there right now…if not for blogger packs, I’d be in debt up to my eyeballs!

The Attention it Deserves

I absolutely love decor, but I find myself struggling with decor blogging more and more. I’m definitely to a point in my blogging career that I no longer apply for teams. I might “reapply” for a team I don’t want to leave, but I’m not looking for more. I’m starting to get back to where I started with all this and that was more about blogging exactly what I wanted, when I wanted. Now I have deadlines that rarely match my inspiration. My passion has always been fashion, but I wanted to do it all. I’m not cutting out decor entirely, but I definitely think I will continue to cut back in the upcoming months. It takes much more time than I have and the more jobs I take on in SL, the less time I have for blogging, especially decor scenes that often take me at least a week to finish. In the end, I often feel that I’m not giving decor the attention it deserves. The next time you’re decorating or shopping, zoom in close and appreciate the tiny details that creators put into their work.

Not Anymore

I’m having quite a bit of anxiety this morning. My mother and I are supposed to go get our hair cut today, but I’m in a great deal of pain. Plus, I’m so scared of the lackadaisical attitude that so many people have about the virus. The numbers are soaring in our area right now. I honestly don’t feel that she or I would survive given our kidney disease and other health issues. Once upon a time, I would have rushed out into the world hoping to get it and die. Not anymore. I finally want to live and I’m damn sure not ready to die for a freaking hair cut. I don’t want to go and I don’t want her to go either. The only alternative is for me to cut her hair myself and…well, I can trim my own without messing it up too much. I’m just not ready for some stranger to be in my personal bubble. I don’t think I can do it.

another layer of armor

I don’t know when I got scared
Scared of my imagination
Used to see beautiful things
Now I got this sick fixation

I’m playing out every single fear I’ve ever had
Scrolling through the pictures, seeing all I don’t have
Believing every negative feeling is a fact
I don’t wanna get used to that

Why do I beat myself up and tear myself down?
I’m so good at being critical
I guess I’ll learn it’s hard to get hurt
When you’re good at being cynical

I’m jealous of when I was young
And everything was right there waiting
Wanted the sky, aimed so high
Instead of lowering my expectations

I don’t know how else to keep my feet on the ground
And stop the voices in my head from getting too loud
I think I’m realizing no one figures it out
And I gotta get used to that

Why do I beat myself up and tear myself down?
I’m so good at being critical
I guess I’ll learn it’s hard to get hurt
When you’re good at being cynical

If I hope and it doesn’t work, then
I know, it’s gonna hurt, so I’ll
Make a joke, act like nothing wrong
And put another layer of armor on

Why do I beat myself up and tear myself down?

Soak it up

Look inside my eyes
I know you’re watching
Look at my demise
You know you got me
Feed me all your lies
And I just soak it up, soak it up, soak it up, baby
Thought that you were mine
But you ain’t down
Ain’t down

From the ashes

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant

It’s been seven hours and fifteen days
Since you took your love away
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away

Since you’ve been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing
I said nothing can take away these blues

‘Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you
