On the Wings of Paper Birds

As a form of self-defense, I’ve developed a rather painful habit. I have a tendency to date people that will rip my heart into pieces. I go into these relationships knowing almost exactly how its going to end. I know they are not healthy and I know its going to hurt in the end. Yet, here’s the thing. These relationships are safe. I realize that sounds strange, but there’s no risk involved. I know going in that its going to end and its going to hurt. However, knowing THAT allows me to be prepared. I even have a nice little post break up ritual. My own little grieving process, if you will.

The good guy finishes last, because he’s too risky. The good guy scares the shit out of me. I might actually begin to trust a good guy and that leaves me far too vulnerable. And THAT is a risk I’m not willing to take. Why? Because every single time I’ve let myself believe in something good it has gotten ripped out from under me. Now I know to let hope fly away on the wings of paper birds, because all it’s gonna take is one good rain to wash it all away.

painful habit
I believe, I believe in a line so thin
There’s a light, there’s a light and it pulls me in
Going down, going down ’til I chip my chin
Take my head in your hands, pop it with a pin

Smokin’ in the Boys Room

Okay, totally telling my age here, but when I was in the 7th grade, I started smoking. Save your lectures, I’m an adult now. You’re too late. Anyway, those of that did smoke, usually did it behind the store that was behind our school…before and after school, but on occasion the true rebels would sneak downstairs to the 6th grade boy’s bathroom, as no teachers ever went in there and it had a huge window that opened to the back of the school away from everything. The logistic were perfect for all sorts of “illegal” activities…of course, this meant any boys in the 6th grade had to hold it or go upstairs and brave the 7th graders bathroom.
A few years later, the song, “Smoking in the Boys Room” by Mötley Crüe was all the rage and a few of us from middle school were still friends and wished that the song had come out sooner. We wondered if people still smoked in the bathroom of our old stomping grounds. I know they don’t anymore as they tore the school down last year and a Walmart grew in its place.

Friday the 13th

“Very superstitious, writing on the wall
Very superstitious, ladders bout’ to fall
Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin’ glass
Seven years of bad luck, the good things in your past
When you believe in things that you don’t understand
Then you suffer
Superstition ain’t the way”
~Stevie Wonder Superstition

I hadn’t really planned these photos for a Friday the 13th post, else there would be black cats, broken mirrors, and ladders involved. However, it has already been a most interesting and entertaining morning. I’ve never had particularly bad luck on Friday the 13th. One of my favorite people was born on a Friday the 13th. Some of the best moments in my life happened on Friday the 13th. And naturally, one cannot dismiss one of the most iconic horror movies of our time and our leading man Jason Voorhees. So, needless to say, I am excited about today. For me and my dark twisted little mind, it tends to be more of a fun and victorious day rather than something scary and ominous.

I’m simply not a superstitious person, but I have certainly witnessed some crazy superstitions in my lifetime, particularly in the Southern U.S. where I’ve spent the majority of my life. (Don’t judge me!) Of course, the basics are black cats crossing your path, broken mirrors, walking under ladders, seeing the bride in her dress before the wedding, etc. I won’t bother with the debunking or revealing the history of these superstitions, nor will I poke fun at those that truly believe. (Okay, I will be laughing at you, but I won’t tease you…much.)

Some of the crazier superstitions I’ve been warned of over the course of my life have included, but are not limited to the following:
1. Do not set your purse on the floor or you’ll go broke. (Well, that explains everything!)
2. Never sign financial documents, particularly checks, with red ink. (More impending financial doom!)
3. If you look a dog in the eye while it poops you’ll get a pimple in your eye. (I’m thinking you got too close!)
4. Never let anyone sweep your feet or you’ll be single forever. (This is very popular with restaurant workers.)
5. If your primary hand itches, you’ve got money coming your way. If your other hand itches, you’ll be getting a parcel soon. (This one was popular with my Grandmother. I have to admit, I kinda like this one.)
6. Whatever you’re doing when the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve is what you will be doing the most, the following year. (Looks like I’ll be sleeping most of 2017! WEWT!)
7. A wild bird in your house is a warning that someone you know is about to die.  (Yeah, probably the bird. I have two cats!)
8. If your ears are burning, someone is talking poorly of you. If they’re itching, someone is speaking nicely of you. (This one amuses me. I don’t know why.)

What I do know is that I’m a very lucky and sometimes unlucky girl, but I do not believe any of it is associated with superstitions. Whether you’re superstitious or not, I hope that this Friday the 13th you will find lots of great deals during your shopping excursions (cuz we all know you’re gonna shop in SL today) and that any ‘luck’ that finds its way to you is good. May Linden Labs servers stay vigilant, may your internet be strong, and  may you suffer not at the hands of lag! *giggles* Yes, it really is that sort of morning for me.

Happy Friday the 13th!!!  XOXO
Oh and for an added bonus, I’ve been told we’re under a full moon, too!

Strapped

With all the amazing events going on in Second Life right now, its amazing I have any lindens at all. I am definitely strapped for cash and my avatar is strapped from top to bottom as a statement. I’m such a dork. Honestly, I just love all the straps and harnesses that are out there right now. I simply can’t resist them so watch my Flickr, Sady Stories, and here to see more. Between harnesses and bikinis I am on a photography binge and I’m loving every minute of it. Hope you’re all enjoying the events and showing off your new stuff as much as I am. ❤
