“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”

Krampus & the Grinch

It’s no secret that I’m a bit bah humbug about the holidays season, mostly because its funny. I almost hate to admit that I actually have some of the best Christmas memories from my childhood that anyone could hope for. Though this entire holiday season is especially hard due to the happenings in real life, but I’m surviving it so far. Pretty sure I gained another 10lbs from Thanksgiving, though. I like food…waaayyy too much.
Anyhoo, whether you love the holidays and all that it offers traditionally or you prefer to be on the Krampus & the Grinch side of it, there’s one event on the grid every single year that never fails deliver exactly what you’d hope to find. That event is Tannenbaum and its one of three events put on by Prism Events every year. I know there’s been some drama between event owners and script writers, and I’m certainly not going to pretend to know the whole truth. What I am asking is that you not punish the designers that were already signed up for these events before the drama went public. So, if you chose a side…I didn’t…but if you did, that is certainly your prerogative…please do not punish those designers that are innocently caught in the crossfire. Besides you’ll also be punishing yourself by missing out on amazing creations. Let’s have a happy holidays and leave the differences to those that are directly involved, k? I’m wishing you all a holiday season filled with love & laughter♥

They Don’t Know

“I’m brilliant
At least that’s what they say
But they don’t know I’m not
Who the hell’s to know

And I’m charming
At least that’s what they think
But they don’t know I’m not
I’m really kind of mean”

Find the light

This entire song has been one of those songs that I’ve related closely to from the very first time I heard it. There’s a weird sense of comfort in surrendering myself to the pain accompanied by lyrics. I didn’t list all of the lyrics, just the first punch. This is one of those songs that just…well…give it a listen sometime and if you really hate the melody, maybe just google the lyrics and read them over. *shrugs* Do what you want, I know I do. *forces a smile*
“Yesterday was the tornado warning, today is like the morning after
Your world is torn in half, you wake and let’s wait to start the morning process
Rebuilding and you’re still a work in progress
Today is a whole new chapter, it’s like an enormous ass
The thunderstorm has passed ya
Your weather didn’t poke his eyes out with the thorn bush that you
Used to smell the roses, stopped to inhale can’t even tell your nose is stuffed
So focused on the brightside, then you floor the gas pedal
And hit the corner fast, the more asserted
Never looking back, may hit the curb
But everyday is a new learning curve, as you, steer through life
Sometimes you might not wanna swerve
But you have to to avert a disaster, lucky, no permanent damage
Cause they hurt you so bad, it’s like they murdered your ass
And threw dirt on your casket, but you returned from the ashes
And that hurt that you have, you just converted to gasoline
And while you’re burning the past, standing at inferno and chant
I’m standing in the flames
It’s a beautiful kind of pain
Setting fire to yesterday
Find the light, find the light, find the light”

Trust Issues

“I’m just letting you know I’m emotionally unavailable
I’d love to reciprocate your love but I’m incapable
I know that you don’t get it, but I’m just so unstable
And all I could think about is how you’d be unfaithful
You think that I am crazy
But that, that does not phase me
And no, you cannot change me
Just know you cannot save me”
~ Olivia O’Brien – Trust Issues

I really want to elaborate on how deeply the quoted lyrics above hit home. There has only been ONE man in my entire life that has not betrayed me and that was my maternal Grandfather. I honestly do not believe he ever would have either. Granted, I was only 7yrs old the last time I saw him before he died, but the way my mother talks about him…well, I have to believe he never would have betrayed me. He was amazing the had the bluest eyes I have ever seen. Every other man in my life has hurt me by making me feel less than worthy. Every man I’ve dated has cheated either with me or on me. Yes, I said with me. You see, I learned my lesson about the betrayal early on. So, in my early 20s, I wouldn’t date a man that didn’t have a woman at home. Why? Because at that time, I would have rather been the woman he cheats with than the woman he cheats on. I was treated exceptionally well by those men and had no restrictions. They couldn’t very well insist on monogamy from me when they were going home to fuck someone else, now could they?
I’m not saying there aren’t some good, honest men out there. All I can say is that they’ve not been men I dealt with for very long. Perhaps its the type of men I’m attracted to. I can accept that. Regardless of why, it comes down to this one thing. I am incapable of trusting a man romantically. I tried to last year, but like all the rest….that led to betrayal and the shattered remains of a heart that wasn’t even healed from the last betrayal. The promises people make when they think they’re in love….hmmmm, I don’t know, I suppose the old addage, “Promises were made to be broken,” has proven to be true….at least in my life. So, trust issues? Nah, more like a full blown subscription to NTA….never trust anyone.

RATS!

Some days I think I’d be better off hanging out with rats than most of the men I meet. I realize I’m no spring chicken in her 20s or even 30s, but the caliber of male personalities in Second Life is severely lacking. It’s no damn wonder women have thrown in the good girl towel and started going for what they need, rather than what they want. Men have been doing it for centuries, but let a woman go seek some self-gratification with a stranger and she gets herself a reputation. To hell with that, these days even the one night stand is likely to disappoint.
I’d love to see some of the men in SL put a bit more effort into courting a woman. Then again, why should they? If they wait long enough, they’ll be surrounded by thirsty sluts, hungry whores, and desperate housewives begging for it. See? I just did it myself, labeled batches of women with bad names. To hell with that! I say if you’re thirsty, get you a drink! If you’re hungry, grab a meal! If you’re desperate…uhm, yeah, maybe see a therapist? I don’t think that’s a healthy attitude to have when making decisions about sex. In the meantime, learn to take care of your own needs. We all know how. We’ve all done it and there’s certainly no harm in that…unless you nasty. So, don’t be nasty.
Yes, I am rambling, just letting my mind go where it wants. I have been up all night and I’ve thought about what to write and this is where I landed. There’s some super cute stuff out there, right now….so go shopping! I’m wishing you all a day filled with love & laughter. ♥

Rats!

Your Nightmares are my Lullabies

I go to sleep to crime shows…let me explain why. Well, I’m not completely sure why, but I do know some of the reasons. Ok, so part of it is that I’m a city girl and I’m used to hearing noises while I sleep. I cannot sleep to complete peace and quiet. Once I’m asleep, then quiet is good. Thank goodness for sleep timers. Whoever made that a feature on TVs sure deserves more recognition. Alright, so why crime shows vs music or something “happier?” Well, I like shows that I can imagine…that I can picture without looking at the screen. The crime shows on DiscoveryID (wicked channel in the U.S.) are perfect, because the ones I watch always catch the killer and they’re on Hulu or AmazonPrime without any loud, obnoxious commercials. Forensic Files is my absolute favorite, because the narrator has the greatest voice! It’s soothing and calm, yet crystal clear. I do sometimes go to sleep to sitcoms, but only those that don’t change the scenery a lot. So, now you know why your nightmares are my lullabies. Plus I’m twisted. *grins*

Self-Righteous Perception

Every so often I come across songs that I think apply to the majority of us in SL and this is one of them. Take a minute, if you will, just read the lyrics before you click on the title link to actually hear the song. Even if you’re familiar with the song already…try to read the words more like a poem…let them sink in. For me, this type of philosophical, metaphoric poetry says more than any one person that even begins to suggest what is right for your life when they barely know you at all. We learn more about ourselves and our truths by looking inward with a mirror made of jagged edges, than we will ever learn from someone else’s self-righteous perception.

Highly Suspect – My Name Is Human

I’m feeling the way that I’m feeling myself
Fuck everyone else
Gotta remember that nobody is better than anyone else, here
(Do you need some time to think it over?)
Look what they do to you
Look what they do to me
Must be joking if you think that either one is free, here
Get up off your knees, girl
Stand face to face with your God
And find out what you are
(Hello, my name is human)
Hello, my name is human
And I came down from the stars
(Hello, my name is human)
I’m ready for love, and I’m ready for war
But I’m ready for more
I know that nobody’s ever been this fucking ready before, hey
(Do you need some time to think it over?)
So figure it out, or don’t figure it out
I figured it out
The bigger the river (the bigger the river)
The bigger the drought (the bigger the drought)
Get up off your knees, boy
Stand face to face with your God
And find out what you are
(Hello, my name is human)
Hello, my name is human
And I came down from the stars
(Hello, my name is human)
Fire world, I love you
Fire world
I’m up off my knees, girl
I’m face to face with myself
And I know who I am
(Hello, my name is human)
I stole my power from the sun
I’m more than just a man
(No longer disillusioned)
(I’m not asking questions)
(‘Cause questions have answers)
(And I don’t want answers)
I came down from the stars (so I’ll take my chances)
(And what are the chances)
(That I could advance)
(On my own circumstances)
(Said “what are the chances?”)
Hello, my name is human (And what are the chances?)
(I don’t want your answers)
(I’m not asking questions)
(So you keep your answers)
And I know who I am (So you keep your answers)
(I’m not asking questions)
(I’m taking my chances)

Choices

“Nobody ever did, or ever will, escape the consequences of his choices.”
~  Alfred A. Montapert

I think its important to remember that, because we are constantly faced with choices from monumental life altering choices to the tiniest things like flipping our hair or smiling at a stranger. Some choices are going to carry far more weight than the others. So, I think its important to remember those consequences as we approach the weekend.

Especially Grace, cuz her consequences are probably going to be a massive hangover and a freshly dug grave in the back yard. *smirks*
