Ready For a Nap

It occurred to me while I was creating this scene that I rarely put a TV or computer desk in the bedrooms I set up in Second Life. Yet, in real life, I have both in my bedroom. I can’t even sleep without a television on all night. Apparently, I’ve been like that since I was a baby. My father used to race motorcycles and he was quite good. I would sleep like the baby I was throughout the race with all the motorcycle engines whizzing by, but the moment things got quiet and there were only a handful of engines running I would wake up and burst into tears. Naturally, this horrified my mother, because people would stare and think that the sweet little baby (me) had actually been crying throughout the entire race. *giggles* Welp, I’m going to do my best to remember all of this the next time I put together a bedroom scene, but we’ll see. Looking at this cozy room is making me want to crawl into my own bed and take one of my 6 hour naps.

Fuck the System

*giggles* If you don’t like rock n roll or loud fast beats, then don’t listen to this song, but there was no way in hell or high water that I could post a picture using this background and not accompany it with a song by one of my all time favorite bands. System Of a Down’s Fuck the System is one of those songs that people think is either just the band having a bit of fun or one of those songs that people will spend hours debating the hidden meanings. I personally feel as though the title says it all and if you listen to SOAD, then you should probably know that when they have something to say, they fucking say it. They don’t hide what they mean in cryptic poetic lyrics. They say what they mean so simply that it confuses the over thinkers. That’s my opinion and I’m standing by it. *laughs*

Muy Bueno

Now, don’t go getting confused. I do not speak Spanish, but I’ll proudly admit that I love the language and I love the food. Well, to be fair, I’m not sure I love authentic Spanish or Mexican food, but I do love tacos and whatever texmex they used to sever at my all time favorite Mexican restaurant, El Palacio. They closed in 2017 and I literally cried. It’s funny to think that we get so attached to places, but I know it was more than a place. It held memories from various times in my life. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was festive, and the times I spent there will never be forgotten.

Let Heaven Commence

There are few things in live that feel better than slipping into a hot bath. If a bathroom is nicely decorated it’s even better. Add a few candles and relaxing music, let heaven commence. While I can only do this little trick in the winter time, I’ve found that I can extend life of the hot water by closing the door and cranking up a small space heater. It far too hot for that trick in summer time, though in the summer sometimes a cool bath can really hit the spot. Either way, I love my garden tub and I have a true weakness for the amazing bathroom designs available in Second Life.

Plenty to Eat

Once upon a time in Second Life, prim food was absolutely horrid. I was so basic with the simple prims, sharp edges. It was a mess. Things got a little better when sculpties came along things got a bit better. Bottles and cans were far more realistic. The best creators did their best, but food was still somewhat sad and not at all appetizing. Most of it was passed around free, because no one felt justified charging money for it. Then mesh came along and eventually food was developed into such delicious looking delights that it would make you mouth water. Now we have virtual buffets. Just like fashion and decor, there seem to be no limits to the delectable items for all your party or kitchen needs.

Cat Nap

I have my share of sleep problems. That’s certainly been no secret throughout my life. However, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve discovered that I absolutely love naps. Sadly, too many of my naps turn into full fledged sleeps. I will plan to lie down for a nap and wake up within two hours. Unfortunately, I wake up five or six hours later wondering where I am and what damn time it is. *laughs* Once upon a time, I couldn’t take a nap to save my life and now its one of my favorite pastimes. I’m becoming more and more like my cat by the day. Which reminds me. I have no idea why they think cap naps are quick and light. My cat spends 80% of his day asleep!

Remnants of Yesteryear

Why yes, you are seeing more and more decor posts on my blog. Thank you for noticing. *giggles* I tried for a while to focus strictly on fashion, but it didn’t take long for me to miss creating the decor scenes. My condo is real life is quite compact, so there’s not a lot of room for rearranging the furniture and I’m too broke to obtain new furniture. This is where Second Life provides yet another outlet for my creative side.

This particular scene is pretty special to me, as I have a weakness for the shabby chic looks and anything vintage. I suppose some would even call me vintage. *laughs* I love mixing ivy and various plants with remnants of yesteryear. I remember as a child visiting my grandmother and piling on all of her old costume jewelry which was far more fancy than the silly crap to be found in most modern day malls. I really enjoyed putting this scene together and I hope that you enjoy the photo as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Roots

“I thank you for all the lives you’ve led
I thank you for every word you said
I thank you for walking away
I thank you
I thank you for the promises you broke
For always watching, watching while I choke
I thank you for teaching me
Yes, I thank you for your hurting
I bite down a little harder
My blades a little sharper
My roots, my roots
Run deep into the hollow
Strike back a little harder
I scream a little louder
My roots, my roots
Run deep into the hollow
I’m stronger than I ever knew
I’m strong because of you
I hit back a little louder
Fuck you a little harder
My roots, my roots
Run deep into the hollow
I thank you for the hole you dug in me
Filled it with cement, sunk me in your sea
Thank you for being so obscene
I thank you

I thank you for never facing me
Swimming in the mud, never coming clean
I thank you for nothing in between
Yes, I thank you for leaving
I bite down a little harder
My blades a little sharper
My roots, my roots
Run deep into the hollow
Strike back a little harder
I scream a little louder
My roots, my roots
Run deep into the hollow
I’m stronger than I ever knew
I’m strong because of you
I hit back a little harder
Fuck you a little louder
My roots, my roots
Run deep into the hollow
You wanna know why I like the pain, you say?
There’s a sick part of me thankful for the hate, I
I stay positive and I, I push forward, ya see?
I, I gotta do the right thing for my family!
So I smile and I say that the world is just fine,
as these fucking parasites eat up my spine,
So I ask you once, and I ask you again
Where do your roots start
And where do your roots end?
I bite down a little harder
My blades a little sharper
My roots, my roots
Run deep into the hollow
Strike back a little harder
I scream a little louder
My roots, my roots
Run deep into the hollow
I’m stronger than I ever knew
I’m strong because of you
I hit back a little louder
Fuck you a little harder
My roots, my roots
Run deep into the hollow…

Hattitude

There’s just something about a big floppy hat that makes me want to prance around in heels. I know that this comes from my childhood, when I would wear my mom’s wigs, talk on my princess phone (that wasn’t connected)….I’d wear her floppy hats and prance around in her heels. Looking around at FaMESHed, this outfit was immediately in my mind. I was wearing it for like a day and a half when my best friend, Tracy, showed me her version of Little Cuba made with Minimal‘s buildings at the Arcade. I was having a fit, “I need to shoot a photo there, right now!” Then to top it off, I knew the perfect pose was in Tracy’s neighborhood poses (at TLC’s Vintage Market themed round.) I stayed in this pose for so long that Tracy logged off and left me standing mid walk. So, this will be the first time she sees what I did and I can’t wait to go back and shoot more pics.
If you know Tracy, you can ask her about visiting, I know she’d love to show you around and encourage you to make use of her Little Cuba for your photos, as well.
