Moving On Up

I could hardly do a post about moving and not get the Jefferson’s theme song stuck in my head. I don’t have a whole lot to say about moving except that I’m glad I don’t have to do it anymore. I imagine I’ll spend the rest of my life in this condo. It’s paid for…in full. I remember moving quite a bit as a kid and all through my 20s and my favorite part of moving was unpacking in the new place. That’s the one thing I’ll miss about moving, but otherwise, I’m glad to have a place that is genuinely my home and know that I don’t have to pack up and leave again.

Promise Me This

 

Ben Howard – Promise

And meet me there, bundles of flowers
We wait through the hours of cold
Winter shall howl at the walls
Tearing down doors of time
Shelter as we go
And promise me this
You’ll wait for me only
Scared of the lonely arms
Surface, far below these burn
And maybe, just maybe I’ll come home
Who am I, darling to you?
Who am I?
Going to tell you stories of mine
Who am I?
Who am I, darling for you?
Who am I?
Could be a burden in time, lonely
Who am I, to you?
Who am I, darling for you?
Who am I?
Going to be a burden
Who am I, darling to you?
Who am I?
I come alone here
I come alone here
promise

Lost on You

If you’ve never heard of LP, I heard you to check out more of her work. This song captures so much of how I’m feeling these days….

LP ~ Lost on You

When you get older, plainer, saner
When you remember all the danger we came from
Burning like embers, falling, tender
Long before the days of no surrender
Years ago and well you know
Smoke ’em if you got ’em
‘Cause it’s going down
All I ever wanted was you
I’ll never get to heaven
‘Cause I don’t know how
Let’s raise a glass or two
To all the things I’ve lost on you
Oh oh
Tell me are they lost on you?
Oh oh
Just that you could cut me loose
Oh oh
After everything I’ve lost on you
Is that lost on you?
Oh oh
Is that lost on you?
Oh oh
Baby, is that lost on you?
Is that lost on you?
Wishing I could see the machinations
Understand the toil of expectations in your mind
Hold me like you never lost your patience
Tell me that you love me more than hate me all the time
And you’re still mine
So smoke ’em if you’ve got ’em
‘Cause it’s going down
All I ever wanted was you
Let’s take a drink of heaven
This can turn around
Let’s raise a glass or two
To all the things I’ve lost on you
Oh oh
Tell me are they lost on you?
Oh oh
Just that you could cut me loose
Oh oh
After everything I’ve lost on you
Is that lost on you?
Oh oh
Is that lost on you?
Oh oh, oh oh
Bab, is that lost on you?
Is that lost on you?
Let’s raise a glass or two
To all the things I’ve lost on you
Oh oh
Tell me are they lost on you?
Oh oh
Just that you cold cut me loose
Oh oh
After everything I’ve lost on you
Is that lost on you?
Is that lost on you?

The Apothecary

My friend, Harlow Heslop, has opened another sim. She can’t help herself and I can’t say I blame her. So, while I was wondering about The Apothecary, her new sim, I ran across this cabin that reminded me of a place I once visited in Vermont. It was family owned and contained so many memories, but upon each visit they would have to clean away the vines, sweep away dried leaves, and dust everything. Naturally, I had to take my photo here. If you love to explore and/or take photos, I must encourage you to explore The Apothecary sim. It’s truly gorgeous.

Smile

I know there’s a certain irony in calling this post smile when I’m not smiling at all. It could have been called Resting Bitch Face and perhaps made a bit more sense. Then again, I’m not really writing about smiling, that just happens to be the name of the song I attached below the credits. I’m not posting the lyrics this time, because they don’t fully speak for me like they often do. My mind is pretty scattered today, actually. I went to the doctor yesterday and I was prescribed two more meds to take along with the others. One of them is a muscle relaxer and I swear I feel down right loopy. So, I’m just leave you with this…hold your head up no matter what’s going on and if you’re too weak to hold your head up, lean on a friend, because there’s a reason to smile waiting around the corner. And if this all sounds like nonsense, then I blame the meds. 😉

We’re trying so hard to get it all right
But only feel lonely at the end of the night

Yeah, somewhere just a little closer to grace

Power of Pets

Pets can be expensive at times, particularly if you have one with special needs or that gets sick a lot, but they’re still cheaper than actual children. *laughs* They don’t require babysitters when you leave the house for a few hours, either. The most beneficial part of having a pet is the power of that unconditional love. They become part of our family. There have been endless studies about how pets help with anxiety and ptsd, not to mention all the other stuff that dogs alone can do. I’m not going to regurgitate information that we all know about pets already. I was just thinking how grateful I am for my furbabies and how no matter what kind of pet you have, you can have a genuine bond with them. Also, anyone that says animals don’t have souls….well, if you’re on my list, just unfriend me, cuz you’re clearly an idiot. *giggles* Okay, I’m only half kidding, I have plenty of stupid friends, we’re cool even if you’re wrong. *smirks*

Are You Serious?

Alright, as a perpetually single woman on the grid, I find myself meeting some very interesting people. Yes, a good portion of them are men, for the lack of a better word. Most of them have been pretty nice experiences, but there’s enough bad apples out there….that I’m beginning to avoid the orchard. Although, I’ve heard about women receiving unsolicited dick pics, that has yet to be my experience. What I have experienced has been far more bizarre in my opinion. I’m not going to tell full stories of how I get myself into these situations, but below you will find a few examples of what I  consider to be such bizarre interactions that I’m always left with the same question, “Are you serious?”

  • I was on voice with this guy, I had invited him to my land, things seemed normal enough as we talked about random things like music and movies when he just lies down in my SL bed and says he’s going to sleep there. I thought he was kidding, but then I hear this strange noise from his end of things. Yes, it sounded like he was jerking off. Being me, I just asked him, “Uhm, are you jerking off?” He just keep making the noise until he ‘finished’ and said, “Yeah, I always do before I go to sleep.”
  • I was having a first conversation with a guy. He’s told me a few things about himself. He’s told me I’m cute, blah blah…then says, “Going AFK.” To which I replied, “OK.” Then he said, “I’m going to jerk off, I’ve been needing to do this all day.”
  • I was talking to a friend of mine on Skype, oddly enough about a guy that had been trying to talk to both of us. During our conversation, he IMed both of us separately. He told her that he was helping his best friend inworld, he told me that he was cooking dinner. He went quiet to both of us for about an hour. Then he began with his IMs again, sending her spanks and sending me kisses.
  • The ex-boyfriend of a friend, messaged me on Facebook with pornographic gifs. I asked why on earth he thought it was okay to send those to me and his answer was, “I thought you’d like them.” Next thing I know he was sent me a 15 sec video of him jacking off.
  • I was cuddling with a guy that I had been getting to know pretty well. We were kissing and talking, when he suddenly stands up and says, “I gotta go, my ex girlfriend needs me.”

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.

Kick Starting the Week

I’m kicking off the week with some tunes and because I do enjoy posting lyrics with song links, I thought let’s do, “Okay, Musical Mondays.” Just maybe I’ll introduce a few people to something new. For today, I’ve got this little number for you. I love it. It makes me want to get up and kick start the week! I hope you’ve had a pleasant weekend so far. I managed to with a little help from my friends. So, here we go….

A Little Bit of Booze

Not sure why, but this set from Bueno really made me think of this song. So, there you have it…a song to go with the photo, cuz I’m not in the mood to share what’s on my mind this morning. *raises her glass* Cheers!

HELLYEAH – Alcohaulin’ Ass

Come on, a little bit of sunshine
A little bit of booze
A little bit of me
And a little bit of you
A little bit country
A little bit of blues
A little slice of heaven
And a little piece of you, come on
Alcohaulin’ ass
Pour another drink in my glass
Alcohaulin’ ass
Alcohaulin’ ass
A little bit thirsty
A little bit used
A little bit of whiskey
And a little pinch to chew
A little bit tired
And a bad attitude
A little bit of drinkin’
And another piece of you
Alcohaulin’ ass
Pour another drink in my glass
Alcohaulin’ ass
Alcohaulin’
You drove me to it, so there was nothing I could do
You pushed me down, split me right in two
Now I found the long hard road carried the weight of you
Boy, oh, boy, God damn, there’s only one thing left to do
A little bit of alcohaulin’ ass
Pour another drink in my glass
Alcohaulin’ ass, there’s only one thing left to do
A little bit of alcohaulin’ ass
Pour another drink in my glass
Alcohaulin’ ass
Alcohaulin’ ass

don't bother
