Winning!

Thank you, Kiddo Oh!♥

Most of us have seen the SL Facebook and Flickr contests promoting new items with the like, comment, and share to enter requirements. I will do them to help promote creators, but I don’t expect to win. There are people in this world that are lucky and win lots of stuff…I had an aunt like that once. I’m not one of those people. If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have none at all. Until now! I won the Dead Dollz Arcade set from Facebook. Now when Kiddo Oh gave me my prize, she told me there was something special in the box for me. I couldn’t imagine what it was, but I figured maybe she threw in a gift card or maybe a special color. I never imagined it would be this! When you look at the photo below, you will see that she took my FB profile picture and created a wall texture that looks like a chalk rendering. I’m so over the moon with this entire set, but that wall made me squeal.I also wanted to show off the lingerie she put out for the latest round of FaMESHed. It just so happens that all this tied together perfectly with both the Clara office collection and the Clara closet collection from Silence. You can click on the photo below and it will take you to flickr where you can get a better look at everything. I can’t think of a single girl, especially bloggers, that wouldn’t be thrilled with this set. So…happy shopping and good luck…you never know…you actually might win after all!!♥

Retail Therapy

After doing some minimal research on the Googlenets, I discovered that the average cost of one therapy session can range between $75-$200. That’s one hour to tell my problems to a stranger that’s going to turn around and ask me how does that make me feel? Nah, I’ll take my $200 for some shopping, because nothing makes me feel better than some retail therapy. I’ll tell my problems to the beautician, the nail girl, or the bartender like a normal person. *giggles*

On Hold

I’ve been approaching a situation with so much caution, because I didn’t want to hurt anyone or for people to misunderstand the situation and think less of me. Naturally, I sought out the advice of my closest friends. They reminded me that people will think and believe what they want, no matter how long I wait. It was then that I realized that those that warrant an explanation will get one. Those that don’t, well, why should I care what they think? Why put my happiness on hold based on what I think they might think? So, later today, I will be announcing my happy news with great pride, and despite what people may think…I haven’t done anything wrong. The timing is just…well, a tad inconvenient and possibly suspicious for some. I can no more stop them from believing that than my ex can stop me from believing what I think about what happened. Oooh, goodness…was that a clue? *grins*

Key to Happiness

As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery.
We have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace.
The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as
anger and attachment, fear and suspicion,
while love and compassion, a sense of universal responsibility
are the sources of peace and happiness.

Quiet Lies

I’m letting the music speak for me….

Matthew Mayfield ~ Quiet Lies

You somehow see inside me
When I lay down
You steal my dreams easily
When you’re around
Quiet lies
Whisper whispered all the time
No more silent treatment
I am screaming in your ear
I’m starving stop at nothing
Til I am inside you for good
For good
Lights blurred with time
And that gray became a light
You see nothing clearly
So head strong deny the feeling
Quiet lies
Whisper whisper all the time
No more silent treatment
I am screaming in your ear
I’m starving stop at nothing
Til I am inside you for good
Ooh for good ooh for good
No more silent treatment
I am inside i am inside
No more silent treatment
I am screaming in your ear
No no no
Starving I’ll stop at nothing
Til I am inside you for good
No no no no
No more silent treatment
I am screaming in your ear
No no no
Starving I’ll stop at nothing
Til I am inside you for good
For good

Running Toward the Fire

Bishop Briggs ~ The Fire

Gave me love, sweet love
Gave me love, sweet love
Heaven above, sent me love
But it wasn’t enough, no it wasn’t enough
‘Cause I’ve been a devil, I’ve been a saint
Somebody help me, I can’t change
I keep on (runnin’ toward, runnin’ toward the fire)
I keep on (runnin’ toward, runnin’ toward the fire)
Oh, I let my lover go, didn’t wanna be a liar
Ashes in the cold, now I’m running toward the fire
(Runnin’ toward, runnin’ toward the fire)
I keep on (runnin’ toward, runnin’ toward) the fire
Gave me love, gave me sick sick love
But it was me who got swallowed up
Not enough, dust to dust, pray for us
‘Cause I’ve been a devil, I’ve been a saint
Somebody help me, I can’t change
I keep on (runnin’ toward, runnin’ toward the fire)
I keep on (runnin’ toward, runnin’ toward the fire)
Oh, I let my lover go, didn’t wanna be a liar
Ashes in the cold, now I’m running toward the fire
(Runnin’ toward, runnin’ toward the fire)
I keep on (runnin’ toward, runnin’ toward the fire)
Oh oh, gonna get burned, gonna get burned
Oh, oh, oh
Oh oh, gonna get burned, gonna get burned
Oh
Oh, I let my lover go, didn’t wanna be a liar
Ashes in the cold, now I’m running toward the fire
Runnin’ toward, runnin’ toward the fire
Oh, I’m running
Runnin’ toward, runnin’ toward the fire, oh

Heartlines

I just don’t have the words. Seems to be happening to me a lot, perhaps I should stop bothering. I can easily find a quote for my photos and just offer links. Seems to be how most people blog. *shrugs* I woke up feeling weird and I can’t explain it.

Broods ~ Heartlines

We could fool the datelines
We could jump the statelines
I don’t wanna always play nice
But I wanna feel your heartlines
I wanna feel your heart
Have you been let down by the ones before?
Do you leave too soon to know?
Never fell in love ’cause I just cut loose
But not when it comes to you
Dressing in black, you’re around for the weekend
Dancing at night, you’re the light that I won’t let go
And I want you close
We could fool the datelines
We could jump the statelines
I don’t wanna always play nice
But I wanna feel your heartlines
I’ll pick you up at midnight
We’ll run to beat the sunlight
We only get the one life
And I wanna feel your heartlines
I wanna feel your heart
Now we’re far apart, in and out of touch
And the words don’t mean as much
So I sit across from someone new
But they don’t compare to you
Lying in bed wide awake, I remember
Dancing at night, you’re the light that I won’t let go
And I want you close
We could fool the datelines
We could jump the statelines
I don’t wanna always play nice
But I wanna feel your heartlines
I’ll pick you up at midnight
We’ll run to beat the sunlight
We only get the one life
And I wanna feel your heartlines
I wanna feel your heartlines
Lying in bed wide awake, I remember
I feel
Dressing in black, you were here for the weekend
And I won’t let go
‘Cause I want you close
We could fool the datelines
We could jump the statelines
I don’t wanna always play nice
But I wanna feel your heartlines
I’ll pick you up at midnight
We’ll run to beat the sunlight
We only get the one life
And I wanna feel your heartlines
We could fool the datelines
We could jump the statelines
I don’t wanna always play nice
But I wanna feel your heartlines
I wanna feel your heartlines
I wanna feel your heartlines
I wanna feel your heart

Because I Can

I love dressing super sexy/slutty in SL, because I can. I’ve been known to dress up like an elf, a cat, a murderer, a skater, a devil, and a variety of other things. My avatar is also much thinner than me in RL and she is forever young. She is anything I want her to be, all based on how I’m feeling at the moment. That’s the beauty of Second Life, right? We can be just about anything we want? Now, I understand that if you dress as an elf and go to an RP sim where there are other elves, people will assume you are there to RP. The same can be said about any of the characters. I mean, there seems to be a sim for everything these days, whether RP or not. So, naturally if I’m dressed overtly sexy or slutty and I hang out at a popular adult club, its going to happen that someone is going to say something or do something that would not be okay in the real world. I’m not easily offended in either world.
However, as an adult woman in her 40s, I find the age difference disconcerting at times. I hear people say all the time that age is just a number, but I disagree. Age is much more than a number. Age is a reflection of time spent alive, it suggests decades of changes that were either witnessed first hand or merely learned by historians. If I’m closer to your mom’s age than I am to yours, things are going to be weird at times. I know, I’ve been there more than once. Yes, it took more than one for me to learn my lesson. The lesson I learned is that it matters to ME. I always find it ironic when a guy is hitting on me and I ask his age. The minute he tells me he’s under a certain age, I wince and shake my head. I won’t deny that its somewhat flattering when they say, “I like older women” or “age doesn’t bother me.” But c’mon, let’s be real, we all know they are most likely just trying to get laid and that’s fine. Again, adult club…its to be expected. What I find amusing is that they assume that their opinion on the age difference is the only one that matters. Uhm, hello? I asked the question for a reason. I’m not going to relate romantically to a 20yr old guy. Sure, they can lie and say they are older, but the truth will come out eventually. There are certain things that people in their 20s simply could not have experienced and certainly wouldn’t remember, because it happened before their time.
This is not to say that I’m not capable of being friends with people of all ages. We can certainly learn a lot from one another, but knowing that you weren’t even born when I graduated high school? Meh, sorry boys, it just turns me off. So, even if you’re just wanting to get laid, try paying attention to what the woman is saying. The questions she asks means those topics are important to her. This goes both ways, all ways, regardless of gender and/or sexual preference, obviously.

Options

One of the greatest gifts we have is the power of choice. If you ever saw the movie, Dangerous Minds, you probably remember the classroom scene where that topic was discussed. You may not have a choice about the gun pointed at your head, but you can choose how you react/respond. So, when adversity comes your way, you have a choice on how to proceed. There are always options. They might not be options we like. They might not be options you like, but there are always options.
The thing is, when you make you’re forced to make tough decisions where none of the choices are exactly ideal, particularly if you reach out to friends for advice on said options. I think in cases like that, its best to sort it out on your own. Not everything you do requires a second opinion, especially when your dilemma involves doing things that feel right to you, but most certainly will not be understood by others. Occasionally, you just have to do what’s right for you, despite what others may think. So, whatever your quandary may be, think carefully on the outcome of your options before seeking the opinions of others.
