You thought I was done

Oh, hello. Did y’all think that because October was over that I was done posting dark images? Are you new here? *giggles* I think I will always be all over the place. It’s one of the reasons I love my blog so much. I blog for an eclectic assortment of stores and I’d love to blog for more events, but I do so love the ones I have access to. Just another reason I love Second Life sooooo much. It’s so easy to dress for your mood. I’m not going to write a lot this morning. I’m recovering from a long busy weekend and finally some solid sleep.

The Devil and Me

When I was a little girl, I used to ask my mom questions about the devil all the time. A bit of foreshadowing in real life, perhaps? To be fair, I think my curiosity was stirred up by foods. My parents had a fondness for deviled ham and it came in this little can that was wrapped in paper. On that paper was the iconic symbol of a devil. Red, pointy tail, hooves…not greatly detailed, just a bit of clip art before that was really a thing. There was also devil’s food cake which was amazing and compared to angel’s food cake…I found the devil to be the better cook. My mom would also make comments to about the cats having the devil in them when they were especially mischievous, energetic, or loud. As an only child, I love the cats the most when they were active, so again, I had this positive connection to the devil. The funny thing is, I remember asking my mom to tell me all about the devil, but for the life of me, I cannot remember anything she would say. I’m guessing she probably changed the subject and tried to steer my attention to Jesus or angels. Those topics just always put me right to sleep. I’m quite sure if my mom was to look back on my early childhood she was say there were a lot of clues about what was to come. *grins*

Fall Over

“You got my heart beating
Beating, beating, beating, beating, beating
You got my mind to fall over
Fall over, fall over, fall over, fall over
Fall over, fall over
I gave up my, my pride, why?
Why, lay over
My motion says why
You got my heart beating
Beating, beating, beating, beating, beating
You got my mind to fall over
Fall over, fall over, fall over, fall over
Fall over, fall over
I gave up my, my pride, why?
Why, lay over
My motion says why
Why, lay over
My motion says why”

It Feels Good

My closest friends know that I’m a bit of a prankster. Nothing major, no bashing of the Xbox of anything like that, but I do like to put the fear of Gods in my mother, yank the chains of friends, and sabotage homes in Second Life. (You’ve been warned.) Recently, I was able to troll one of the captains of trolling himself, Mr Dusty Wasp. Oh yes, and it was glorious! I’ll do my best to keep this short…*giggles*
Dusty knows how much I love documentaries and how I’m very curious about how people, especially those with peculiar lifestyles or beliefs. So, being the awesome friend that he is, he told me about a documentary on Netflix about Flat Earthers. He went on to say he had no interest in it, but he knew I was curious about stuff like that. So, I watched it within a few days.
The day after I watched it. When I told him about it the conversation went pretty much as follows…
Sady: Oh hey, thanks for telling me about that Flat Earther documentary. I get it now.
Dusty: Oh yeah, what do you get?
Sady: Well, I get where they’re coming from. I mean there’s these airplanes that go all the way around the world, rather than the shortest way. If Earth was round, why wouldn’t they take the shorter route?
Dusty: Wait, what are you saying?
Sady: I’m saying, I get it! I see their point. It all makes so much sense now. I mean, didn’t NASA admit that the footage of the moon landing was done in a studio? So, why wouldn’t they like about the earth being round. I mean we thought it was flat begin with, but then the powers to be all told us that its round.
Dusty: OMG! I shouldn’t have let you watch that by yourself.
(I am cracking up at this point. I’m not sure I can keep going.”
Dusty: Here…please watch this video. It’s only about 10 mins long, but you just cannot believe that the earth is flat.

At this point, I burst into laughter and explain that, of course, I know the earth is not flat. I live in Huntsville, AL….the Rocket City. NASA is in my back yard and the rockets that go into space are built here and most of the stuff that has come back from space is on display at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center that’s located less than 10 miles from my house.

And now whenever I tell this story or refer to the flat earth in anyway, I am met with a resounding, “Fuck you!” *giggles* Fuck you, too, Dusty! ♥

I TROLLED THE CAPTAIN OF THE TROLLS!!! And it feels gooooood. *grins* Feel free to use this little trick on your friends and let me know how it goes.

Blog For Yourself

There was a Facebook post recently from a blogger about other blogger styles. I even wrote about it in one of my blog posts, Opinions. There was a comment made in response to the original post that struck a chord with me as a blog manager. Its something that I believe a lot of bloggers honestly feel is true….and to some extent, I’d agree.
“Truth is, and always has been, it’s not what you do, it’s who you know.”
Once again, I’m not going to call out the person that said it. I’m not attacking nor fully supporting the statement. However, I also don’t want anyone else attacking this blogger for stating what they believe to be true.
As a blogger manager, I become quite familiar with a lot of bloggers. I currently represent four stores and there’s quite a bit of crossover. There are a handful of bloggers that are indeed on every team I manage. Mostly that is coincidence, but I’ll admit some are just damn fine bloggers that I know will meet their deadlines, present gorgeous photos, and provide a lot of exposure. Before you get riled up, think about this for a moment. Before Strawberry Singh became a Linden Lab employee, she was THE most sought out blogger on the grid, to my limited knowledge. She had become so popular as a blogger that she was not even required to follow the rules of most teams. Stores were simply elated to have Berry showcase them at all. With that said, there are other bloggers out there that while they might not be quite on the level of Strawberry Singh, they are damn fine bloggers with a massive following and extensive talent. Knowing that, wouldn’t you want them on YOUR team, if you had a store? If you said no, you’re a liar or a very poor decision maker. So, it might not necessarily be who you know, but who knows about you.
This works both ways. If you have a reputation of being difficult to work for, odds are you’re not likely to get offered as many positions out there. You see, blog managers often share their horror stories with one another. Just like bloggers talk about which blog managers are a pain in the arse or which brands demand too much.
I will add one more thing on this topic before I shut the hell up about it. I hire more bloggers I’ve never met or heard of than I do those that I’m familiar with. Simply for the fact that they provide an audience that is outside the normal circles in which I travel. For instance, I will take on an urban blogger for a casual store, simply because they can merge styles and show the brand in a whole new light. So, odds are, if you feel like you’re not getting jobs because you don’t know the blog managers, you might want to look at your history with other blog managers. It might not be about who you don’t know. It might be about who you pissed off. Jussayin.
Then again, it might have nothing to do with either of those things. There are soooo many reasons why bloggers aren’t chosen, you really need to try and not take rejections so personally. If you love blogging, then blog and stop worrying about who gives your stuff to blog. Just blog what you love, blog for yourself.

Prayin

“Well, you almost had me fooled
Told me that I was nothing without you
Oh, but after everything you’ve done
I can thank you for how strong I have become
‘Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell
I had to learn how to fight for myself
And we both know all the truth I could tell
I’ll just say this is “I wish you farewell”
I hope you’re somewhere prayin’, prayin’
I hope your soul is changin’, changin’
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, prayin’
I’m proud of who I am
No more monsters, I can breathe again
And you said that I was done
Well, you were wrong and now the best is yet to come
‘Cause I can make it on my own, oh
And I don’t need you, I found a strength I’ve never known
I’ll bring thunder, I’ll bring rain, oh
When I’m finished, they won’t even know your name
You brought the flames and you put me through hell
I had to learn how to fight for myself
And we both know all the truth I could tell
I’ll just say this is “I wish you farewell”
I hope you’re somewhere prayin’, prayin’
I hope your soul is changin’, changin’
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, prayin’
Ah sometimes, I pray for you at night, oh
Someday, maybe you’ll see the light
Whoa oh oh oh, some say, in life, you’re gonna get what you give
But some things only God can forgive
Yeah! (I hope you’re somewhere prayin’, prayin’)
I hope your soul is changin’, changin’
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, prayin'”

Hear Me Now

“I’m at the bottom, can you come let me up?
‘Cause I brought a flower for you
Your friends are faded, let me fill up your cup
And toast to the stars over
The ocean’s flowing
Emotions in the air
I don’t wanna live for nothing
Just wanna be something
I never knew what it took to win
I don’t wanna live for nothing
Just wanna be something
I never knew we’d be more than friends”

Teeth

There is no way to explain to my readers how excited I was about these gloves and panties. There’s a really fantastic (really bad) movie out there called Teeth and the way it makes men cringe cracks me up so much. I highly recommend this movie to everyone and I have seen it several times. I could not help but think about all the twisted ways one might use these gloves if they were real, especially if that someone was afflicted with Vagina Dentata. I will simply leave it at that, but I strongly encourage those with a dark side to visit the Eclipse Event. I honestly think this might be their best round yet.

You Won’t Stop Me

“How could this man I thought I knew
Turn out to be unjust so cruel
Could only see the good in you
Pretended not to know the truth
You tried to hide your lies, disguise yourself
Through living in denial
But in the end you’ll see
You won’t stop me
I am a fighter and I
I ain’t goin’ stop
There is no turning back
I’ve had enough
‘Cause it makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter”

all that remains

“A heart will swell before it’s hardened
With the flick of the hair, it can make you old
Another hole to dig my soul in
I’ll leave anything bare that keeps me soul
A physical kiss is nothing without it
And you close your eyes to see what it’s done
The body that lies is built up on looking
‘Cause all that remains before it’s begun”
