Good Sisters, Bad Students

I show up to collaborate on this blog post with my sister, Kess Crystal, and I find her standing in front of this school backdrop with her books & drink. I couldn’t help myself and laughed, “Well, if that’s how you dress for school, its no wonder you have two kids already!”
She looks at me and says, “Well, you’re smoking! You’re not better!”
“Listen, I’m stunting my growth not spreading my legs!”
We both laughed and went on with doing the picture, while talking about other things. This is why we’re sisters. This is why I love her. She is the sister I always wanted. I just didn’t have to deal with her smart ass until we were in our 40s. LOL!
Fortunately, we did find each other. Despite the person that tried his best to keep us apart or just maybe that was his purpose in both our lives, to bring us together. Either way, I consider myself beyond blessed to have her as my sister and my friend. I love her beyond words.

Know When to Let Go

“Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.”

I Can Totally Fix This

Gimme a hammer, screwdriver, and a hammer…and by god, I’ll try to fix stuff! I mean, with a hammer, if I can’t fix it, I can’t beat into oblivion. Then I’m justified in buying a whole new one….whatever it is. Although, I am very poor, so replacements could take quite some time. And hey, I’m gonna look trying to fix it, too. I mean, you have to dress for the part, right? Plumbers show their ass cracks for that very reason, I assume. So, here I am in my cute little tied off tee-shirt and cut off shorts…I’m ready to fix something!!!

More decor!

I find myself doing a lot of decorating lately. Partially cuz I’ve been bouncing around the Blake until I found the right spot. I do think I’m there now and I have no plans to move again for a very long time. With that said, I forgot how much I love decor. Yes, it takes me longer to accomplish a scene I’m happy with, but in the end I get this therapeutic calm from doing it. On a fluke, I applied to The Loft and to my amazement I was accepted! Now you can expect to see more decor posts from me going forward. I’ll never abandon fashion. I couldn’t. I’d rather stop blogging than do that, but I’ve got a new found enthusiasm for decor and lots of new ideas to bring to my blog.

Don’t we feed you enough?

Last night, I ordered Chinese Take Away for my mother’s birthday. She just turned 75, can you believe it? Yeah, Mama Sady is three quarters of a century and still going strong. Anyway, Mom was about to go pick it up (as my license is expired) and as she’s collecting her purse and keys, I hear her exclaim, “WHAT THE FUCK?” Followed by, “Come see what your cat has done!”
I go to see what all the commotion is about and I discover that Yara, one of my new cats, has ripped wrestled a trash bag to the ground and is now licking the upper edges of a dog food can. I quickly grabbed my camera and took a photo while laughing, “Yara! Don’t we feed you enough?” She’s a rescue and I’m not sure what her backstory is, but I suspect she spent some time going hungry and having to find her meals where she good. Thus she has a habit of sniffing out food anywhere she can find it. Let me assure you that she has plenty of food. We’re an open feeder kinda family, so she has bowl of cat food on my nightstand as well as my mother’s. Yet, here she is, going for scraps in the trash….and dog food at that! This inspired my photo today and I’ve even included the real life photo I took at the very bottom of the post, for those that are curious….as we cats tend to be. *winks*

Don't we feed you enough?

I heard them all too loud

Oh no, I did it again
I tell the world I’m fine, never near the edge
And now I’m falling
Too late to tell the truth
Oh no, I did it again
I heard them all too loud, voices in my head
And now I’m lonely
Someone to tell me thеy knew

I heard them all too loud

That Blake Life

I’ve been having so much fun in Second Life lately. I kinda dropped the ball a bit on blogging, but it has been nice to take a break from the daily grind of what is usually my SL. I moved to the Blake Sea a couple of months ago. I wasn’t expecting much from it, but it was a nice area and close to some friends. I did think it was neat that they could just drive their boats right over to my house and I loved seeing the other boats that passed my house. Saturday night, a bunch of my Burrow Co. friends were out yachting the Blake Sea and pulled up to my house. It was so awesome! They literally delivered a party to my door! We hung out and fished and laughed in ways I haven’t laughed in a very long time. It was great!
Living on the Blake has given me a huge sense of community that I’ve not felt in a very long time. Mind you, there are places I can go and feel that sense of community, like Burrow Co, but having it at home…THAT’s something I haven’t felt in well over a year…year and a half at least. I had no idea how much I missed it.
I’ve been in SL approximately 15yrs and this just goes to show, that if you’re bored in Second Life, this is not the place for you. There is so much to explore and experience on the grid that it will never cease to amaze me. So, for those looking for a new experience, go explore the grid…check out places you may have heard about, but thought they didn’t interest you. They just might surprise you, cuz I knew about the Blake ages ago and never thought I’d find myself loving it the way that I do.

Are we monsters?

I’m watching this show with this amazing witch in it. She makes all these crazy concoctions with hamster parts and tadpoles and God knows what else for these spells. Naturally, I’m grossed out. Later on, I’m eating some left overs of roast beef and mashed potatoes. It got me thinking about how cooking really is just some gross body parts of an animal, mixed with other ingredients, then served up to someone to devour. I have to wonder if that’s as gross to a lifelong vegetarian as the scene from the movie is to us. You see, years ago, I had this massive group of friends in real life and four of us lived in the same apartment building. Our doors were always open to our friends, most of them had their own keys.
Anyway, it was Thanksgiving weekend and we had this huge feast at my house. Afterwards, the leftovers were placed in the fridge, including a partially eaten Turkey on a platter. My best friend was dating a vegan. Like he was hardcore vegan. She asked him to grab her a drink from the fridge. He opened the fridge and gasped, then quickly slammed the fridge door. His face was pale and he looked at her, “There’s a carcus in the fridge!” We all cracked up laughing, while he didn’t find it remotely funny and was literally sick to his stomach.
So, here I am all these years later, eating my left over roast, still watching this show (there are 8 episodes) and I’m like, “Hmm, this isn’t so different from what she’s made.” I mean, we plopped this big piece of a cow into a (crock)pot, we sprinkled some herbs and onions on it, then a bit of water and left it to cook for eight hours. Then we ate it. Not so different, is it? Except we ate it without intent of anything other than substance and joy. We obtained joy from eating the flesh of what used to be part of a living, breathing creature. Are we monsters?

Are we monsters?

Feeling like a Boss

Its not secret that I own The Liaison Collaborative event now and every month during set up, I do my best not only to chase down designers to set up, but also to amuse them. The latter part does not always work, but at least I try. I don’t have a huge team of people like some events, but we’re not a massive event either. With that said, I do my best to be present and on hand to assist the designers during set up. This month I’ve dressed up like a real boss bitch with this gorgeous pin striped dress from Pixicat, which you can pick up over at Anthem. Then I got the BUENO-On the GoCup, that you can grab at Kustom9, and I knew my look was complete. I mean, what boss bitch doesn’t have a matching cup of coffee with her at all times?

I’m Nobody

I recently posted to Facebook, “Why do some people think that their every thought deserves a post on Facebook? I don’t get it.” This was mostly aimed at one particular person that posted their opinion about ONE item being sold at an event. She thought the item was overpriced or something. It was just this one random thought and she caught all sorts of hell in her comments from people that were appalled at her post.
First and foremost, I will defend her right to post whatever she wants. It’s her page, she can do what she wants. I do not believe that she deserves to be attacked in the comments, but if she is…I’m here for it. I know I shouldn’t admit that, but let’s be real that’s the best part of stumbling across these posts. With that said, I am also the person that will unfollow someone like that. I don’t care about rando thoughts on random subjects, particularly if they tend to be negative, boring, and serve no clear purpose…be funny or be gone!
With all of that said, I do know there are people who can laugh at themselves and find their own behavior so ridiculous that they need to share. I honestly think that this sort of post is asking for validation and is a bit more understandable. Now, if I don’t find you as funny as you find yourself….welp, I’m probably going to unfollow…cuz be funny or be gone!
I know I’m not the only person annoyed with these types of posts and by all means, please don’t think I am attacking anyone. I promise I’m not. I appreciate the freedom of speech and just because I personally find someone to be an waste of time and space, certainly doesn’t mean they truly are or that everyone agrees with me. I’m nobody. My opinion holds as much weight as the girl who decided to tell the whole world that she put BBQ sauce on her fries by accident and loved it. I mean, I’ve been putting BBQ sauce on potato wedges for years…ya don’t see me bragging about it all over Facebook. Pffft, get a blog, then if anyone reads it…they did this to themselves! *grins*
