Good Ole Days

I’ve thought about my early days in Second Life a good bit lately and its amazing how different things are now. I find it quite funny when people complain about the issues of today, because when I first started there weren’t even sculpties, much less mesh. Actually, I remember when flexi hit the scene and I swear I spun in my flexi skirts for hours. I couldn’t wait to run so that my flexi locks would sway out behind me. We didn’t care that our hair settled into our boobs or that it cut through our shoulders like a hot knife through butter. When sculpties showed up, that was equally huge! It changed everything. Suddenly we had cupped sleeves and so many apples. There were apples everywhere and they were amazing! People with new avatars had actually last names! I think one of my favorite things to remember…arriving at your location with hair or shoes sticking out of your butt. There were only two remedies for that…relog or detach then reattach and hope for the best! Things are more beautiful than ever and I am so glad I’ve been able to witness the changes. Let’s hope that as styles often come back around that  hairy shoe wearing butts don’t make a comeback. *giggles*
I sure hope this week is a good one for you. Please remember to be kind and as always, Happy Shopping!♥

Black & White

About some of the stuffs:
Mina has delivered another gorgeous style, Dagny, for now can be picked up at Hairology. No more separate versions for materials and non, now its one hair and its all hud operated. This is going to cut way back on the number of items in your inventory. I love it!
I know I went with a black and white photo, but the Miele necklace still manages to pop and I can assure you this necklace alone is worth a trip to this round of ON9. There are five color versions available, Quartz,  Amethyst, Citrine, Onyx, and Crystal.
I blogged the long dress version of the Cynful Regality Corset in a February post, Princess Sady, but I don’t think I mentioned that you don’t have to wear the gown version. So, I decided to show off how versatile the corset is, by wearing with a pair of panties from erratic. Its always fun to pull out older items and wear it an all new way!
One last thing I want to mention is the pose. Pose It has three sets of poses at ON9 this round, each is a set for three people complete with poseballs, but you can use the poses singularly as I’ve done here! Just another example of me stepping out of the box creatively.

Mad World

“All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression”
Tears For Fears Mad World (Jasmine Thompson cover)

The world is full of crazy, mean people. Second Life is not different. There are so many people in both worlds that get their kicks by bringing misery into others’ lives. If you and I are not those kinds of people the best thing we can do to combat that sort of madness is to be kind to one another. I was exploring Winter Moon when I came upon this sign and it really hit home. I tease my friend Troy about being too nice sometimes, thus he gets a lot of girls hitting on him…although he is admittedly clueless about it at times. However, the reason his kindness is often mistaken as an open invitation is rather sad if you think about it. He’s simply being nice. He offers hugs and kind words to almost every person he meets. How thoroughly sad is it that kindness is so misunderstood? But ya know what? He is even able to thwart the unwanted advances in a nice way. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him be outright rude to anyone.
Perhaps if we all treated each other as kindly as Troy treats everyone he meets…just maybe we can live in a more loving place. I, for one, have decided to start being nicer. *nods* Oh stop laughing! I can be nice! I CAN!!! So can you, lets give a try shall we?

Life is a Beach

“Don’t let the sound of your own wheels
drive you crazy
Lighten up while you still can ”
The Eagles Take It Easy

life is a beach2

Sometimes overthinking and worrying can cause as much grief as the things I’m worrying about. Once in a while, I just have to take a break from all the madness going on in my head and relax. Thanks to my good friend, Troy, I found just the spot. There’s something truly beautiful and relaxing about Luane’s Magical World and it seems she’s got a photo contest going on at the moment. I don’t have any details for you, so if you’re interested…go check out the sim and grab a notecard for more information. Who knows? You might just find me relaxing on the beach. Have a great week and remember not to let all the pressures of life get you down. ♥

It’s Oh So Quiet

“It’s oh so quiet
Shh shh
It’s oh so still
Shh shh
You’re all alone
Shh shh
And so peaceful until
You fall in love
Zing boom
The sky up above
Zing boom
Is caving in
Wow bam
You’ve never been so nuts about a guy
You want to laugh you want to cry
You cross your heart and hope to die”
Bjork It’s Oh So Quiet

secret3

It’s rather funny to me how relationship can really mark time in our lives…well for those of us that aren’t especially good at relationships anyway. I watch the people who fall in and out of love in SL, every other week and it makes me giggle. However, I kinda get it. For me it takes a little longer than a week or two to fall, much less get over it, but when it does hit me…its usually quite unexpected. I’ve never found love when I’m feeling lonely and go out “looking” to meet someone special. It has never happened that way for me at all. For one thing, I completely suck at flirting. The last time I tried to flirt with a guy I offered him a rape whistle as a joke. *facepalms*

secret2

The song talks about how quiet things are until you fall in love and how suddenly there’s noise and I think the same can be said about my attitude. I’m happier and lighter about things when I’m in love. I’m trouble either way, but who I torment with said trouble varies. Just ask my friends, they questioned the hell out of me when I started falling in love with Josh. “Who are you and what have you done with Sady?” Apparently, I’m all nice and stuff now. *laughs* They just dont’ realize I’m serving up all my trouble to Josh and he’s keeping a tally. Not sure why or what he plans to do with said “bill,” but he’s got quite a list. *snickers*

secret1

So, yeah, two days in a row you’ve seen me in pink. I totally blame Josh for making me all soft…I’ll be back with some hardcore stuff soon…I swear! Meanwhile, get out there and shop to your heart’s content, cuz there’s sooooo much good stuff just waiting to be on your avatar right now!!

Home

“I know if I can find my own way back
There’s a life I always knew but never had
I’m tired of fighting things that I can’t change
Letting me go so I can finally find my place”
Sigma & Rita Ora – Coming Home

home2

Yesterday, I wrote about having the ground beneath our feet to catch us when we fall, but I didn’t mean that in such a literal sense. That ground is my foundation. My circle of friends…my family…my home…that place that I can always go back to no matter what happens to me on this grand adventure of a life. When I’m tired and beat down, I can go home and know that I am safe…I am grounded…and there is no other place quite like it. To my home…my people…I love each of you and I can’t thank you enough. I might be flying high and free at the moment, but I haven’t forgotten that you all are there and without you I wouldn’t be here now. I love you all so much. Part of me wants to list you all, but you know my squirrelly little memory will leave someone out, so I’ll do some general shouts out that you’ll hopefully understand…Home really is where the heart is.

To my Cunts…I love you guys so freaking much and how you teach me to throw caution to the wind and say with glory, “McFUCKIT!” ♥
To my Lockjaw Family…my God, what a delightful group of amazing and talented misfits! You all rock! Don’t any of you forget that!♥
Need a better name for the Stoner’s group…but they know who they are…I hope. I love you bitches so damn much. Never stop being fabulous, please. We have all been through so much this past year, lets rule the world this year!♥
To all my friends, listed in a group or not…to the creators that support me, believe in me…you are all my home and I appreciate you more than you know. Thank you.

Bad Moon Rising

“I see a bad moon a-rising
I see trouble on the way
I see earthquakes and lightnin’
I see bad times today”
Creedence Clearwater Revival Bad Moon Rising

bad-moon-rising1

Its no secret that I’m from the South and down here we’ve got a lot of superstitions. I’m not a superstitious person, but when you wake up from a nightmare about dead cats, big snakes, and really bad coffee…well, that first cup of coffee better be a good one. When its not…lets just say I’m hearing the whisperings of my  long dead grandmother in my ear as I try to salvage this coffee. Give the song a listen…let’s just say I’m a bit leery about this day already.
What I’m not leery about is the abundance of amazing items being created across the grid. If you can’t find something to wear, you aren’t looking hard enough, and let’s be honest, in SL? Yeah, you can walk around showing off your pretty lingerie like a Victoria Secrets model at promotional party. So, get your shop on…I, for one, will be putting on my fierce facade as I prepare for this ominous day!
