The Laundromat

Years ago, many many years ago, back in my very young, wild and single days, I used to love going to the laundromat with my roommate. We’d make a day of it and we always had so much fun. We were a wild pair. We’d drag all our laundry down the local laundromat, grab a couple of Diet Pepsis and get to work. The best part was waiting on the clothes to dry. We’d sit on the counter and chat. Sometimes we’d even have a bit of a picnic. There was a sandwich shop right around the corner, so if it was one those big laundry days, we’d grab some lunch for our countertop picnic.

It’s funny how you can have such fond memories of something that just felt like a necessity at the time. It certainly feels like a lifetime ago. Well, it might be someone’s lifetime ago, considering I was around 21 at the time. *laughs* Now, I can’t even remember the last time I went to a laundromat. My anxiety keeps me in the house as much as possible and lucky for me, I have a washer & dryer in my kitchen!

NOW, I’m ready!

Ok, I’ve stuffed myself with food the way you stuff a plushie at Build-a-Bear! Now, I’m ready for Christmas. No, I don’t mean the dinner, I mean the decorations. I think the delicious food makes me so complacent that I can embrace my belly and laugh right along with jolly ol’ Santa!!! In fact, I might just waddle around behind him and embrace feeling small in his shadow. *laughs* Seriously though, its always been a tradition at my house to decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving.
I’ve never been one to decorate every room in the house. I keep the decor in the living room and dining room, maybe a little ceramic tree in the guest bathroom provided there’s room. Once upon a time, I did the whole yard and lights on the building, but I’m too old and lazy to be climbing on ladders nowadays. Okay, mostly scared and lazy, ok? I’m not the most graceful person on the planet.

NOW, I'm ready!

Eye Rolling

One of my best friends in & out of SL is the forever eye rolling Dusty Wasp. He has this gesture that has kind of become a bit of a signature move for him that goes like this:
Ðυѕтч MF’и Wαѕρ: яσℓℓѕ hiѕ мf’η cαятσση єуєѕ ◑‿◐
It has even turned into a gesture for his friends so he doesn’t even have to do it anymore…we just do it for him.
Sᴀᴅʏ Mᴀɴx: яσℓℓѕ dυѕтy’ѕ мf’η cαятσση єуєѕ ◑‿◐

This is one of those things you gotta love about Second Life, right? Gestures. Been many a time I wished for one in the real world. Anyway, as soon as I saw this graphic for the new Arya Top from Miu, I knew this was the one I’d use. I mean, sometimes an eye roll says much more than words, right? I bet there are even some people rolling their eyes at this post. *smirks & rolls her eyes at them*

Salem is Back!!!

Okay, this is hands down my favorite of the Prism Events events! Every year, they put together the most amazing event for the month of October. The set up of the event itself is pretty epic. The designers that participate pull out all the stops. Some people say that Christmas is the most magical time of the year, but lets be serious. Halloween is the really magic time! The event will open on Saturday, September 28 and run until Thursday, October 31. If you like Halloween or the supernatural even a little bit, this is an event you do not want to miss. Seriously, at the very least, you’ve got to check out the sim and explore. You won’t regret it!!

Attached

I still work with more fashion designers than decor, but I am slowly but surely building up the decor side of things. I fall more and more in love with decor with each scene I create. I tend to spend more time on my decor scenes and sometimes I get more attached to them than I should. This is one of those. I’ll probably remove the shower, the puddle, and the clothes on the floor….perhaps even the shelf behind the tub and the decor on it. That’s manly so I can save prims and space. Just don’t be surprised if you see this bathroom as a background for a fashion shot I do later.

“I’ve been waiting for you to get your mind right
Pour yourself into my skin until I can’t see
I’ve been waiting for you to get your mind right
Woah, woah, woah

You’ve been running from yourself for a while
Waiting for the whole thing to catch fire
You think that if you burn down you’ll be fine
And maybe I’d forget all the time you lied

I’m sick of awaiting your vacancy
I hope that you choke on your vacant teeth
No space in your broken veins left for me
I know that you’re empty, I know that you’re empty, yeah”

He Smiled

He was a loner. He kept to himself and lived a minimal life. His only relationship was with the old woman at the Quick Shop on the edge of town, where he bought beer and supplies. He didn’t really celebrate holidays, but every year that sweet old woman would give him a box lovingly wrapped with an ornament attached. Inside the box was always the same, a dozen pair of colorful socks. It was the one time a year he smiled.

thanks for the socks dad

Music is Timeless

I love music. I’ve yet to understand anyone that doesn’t, like my mother. *rolls her eyes* I’m not super knowledgeable about music, I’ll admit. I rarely know the artist’s name, song name, or lyrics. Thank goodness for Google! However, I think that is music itself were to dedicate a song to me, it would be this one. Music is always there for us, Time After Time. I chose one of my favorite covers of the song. So, have a listen and I’ve chosen not to provide the lyrics, because I’m pretty sure most of us already know these. ♥

Music is Timeless
If you’re lost you can look–and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you–I’ll be waiting 
Time after time

Oh Deer

When I was putting this scene together, I couldn’t help but get lost as I was thrown down memory lane. Earlier this year, I lost my aunt. I shouldn’t say I lost her, because to be honest, I didn’t really like her. My mom lost her sister. My mom was and still is quite heartbroken. While I didn’t like my aunt very much, there were things I liked about her. I loved visiting her for a few days at a time, because she lived on a mountain in the hills of West Virginia. I know, I know, but seriously, its a beautiful state, especially in the fall when the leaves are so vibrant. I loved being so enveloped in mother nature. There were deer that would come into her yard every night as the sun was going down and you never knew when you’d see a bear lurking about looking for apples. My aunt was especially gullible and I even had her hunting ghost orbs in the Catholic cemetery at the bottom of the mountain once. *laughs* Her home was rustic and so far removed from modern society to include dial up internet as it was all she could get where she lived.
I didn’t agree with her views on life, religion, or politics. I didn’t think she was a very nice person, but there we managed to share some funny moments. Like the time we mouthed words to each other and made my mother think she was going deaf. She fought hard the last few years of her life and finally couldn’t fight anymore. I understood that and I admired her decision to tell her family she was done fighting. To say goodbye and let her go. I know that took a lot of courage for her, considering how close she was to her children and how much she loved her husband. I dedicate this post to her, even though she has never approved of me, my lifestyle, my beliefs, etc. *laughs*

Being Grateful

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” ~ Melody Beattie

Once upon a time I kept a gratitude journal to remind myself of things I had to be grateful for every single day. It’s funny how something so simple can change your perspective on everything. At first, I would do this every morning, to ensure a good attitude for the day. After a while, I notice that by the end of the day, I still had complaints. I had physical pain and I do every single day. Something might go wrong, a bad day at work…a bad hair day…cat got sick…fought with my mom, etc. Eventually, I decided it was better for me to write in my gratitude journal at the end of the day, because it made the bad things not so bad. So, that bad day at work? I was grateful to have a job. That bad hair day? Thank goodness it was long enough to pull up. My cat threw up? Well, at least it was nothing serious. I love my cat. Fought with my mom? I’m so glad to still have her in my life. There will always be things to bring us down, but we will also have things to be grateful for, too. If you are reading this, it means you have internet and that’s a luxury, believe it or not. Lots of people don’t even have a home, much less the internet. So, let’s all find some gratitude in our lives and change our perspective on the bad things in our lives. ♥
