She Knew

She sneered as descended the stairs and saw him whispering into his phone. She knew he was whispering to his whore, scolding her for calling him when she knew damn well he was at home. She wanted to rip the phone from his hands and scream at both of them. The truth of the matter was, she didn’t care that he had found someone else to accept his pathetic three minutes of sweaty grunting. She was disgusted by his cowardice and her disrespect. She had done her homework and knew exactly who he was fucking. She knew that his whore was betraying her partner as well. She relished the idea that the one of them would deliver the karma due to both of them.
As he hung up the phone and turned to see her coming down the stairs, he stared at her like a deer in the headlights. She smiled knowingly at him and asked the question that she knew would make him squirm, “Who was on the phone, Darling?”

Skyscraper

“You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I’m made of glass
Like I’m made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper, like a skyscraper”
~Kerli – Skyscraper

As humans, we take a lot of punches throughout our lives. Yet, with each passing day, we either grow stronger or weaker. Ultimately, the choice is ours. Mentally and emotionally, I’ve definitely grown stronger. My body? Eh, not so much. I should have taken better care of it when I was younger, but I was invincible and never imagined I’d live past 30. Here I am dealing with level 8 pain daily as the weather changes. Yet, the emotional and mental tolls have been far more difficult to face.
There have been times that I’ve felt as fragile as glass, as delicate as tissue paper, and I’ve been beaten down both literally and figuratively. But each and every time, so far, I’ve gotten up. I’ve gained strength from the pain. In fact, there are times that by keeping my pain to myself and not complaining about it, by not showing it to the world, that I can borrow from it….channel it into strength. I’ve siphoned power from the pain to keep going. Perhaps I’m a bit stubborn, too. I feel like if anyone is going to genuinely take credit for me falling apart, its going to be me. So, until I’m ready to curl up with the worms for eternity, I will continue to rise like a skyscraper.

LOL Challenge

Recently, Grace has given her closest friends the ultimate ammonition by telling us about a girl she works with that says, “El Oh El” whenever she thinks something is funny, instead of just laughing. That in and of itself cracked me up and we’ve not let her live it down. She really should’ve known better. However, let’s try to make each other actually laugh today.

Now,  we all know there’s always plenty of hate and drama in SL, so there’s certainly no need for more of that. We’ve even got some amazing folks on FB promoting positive energy and love. So, I’ve decided that since one of my absolute favorite things to do is laugh…I’m going to challenge each of my readers to share a funny video…wait, there’s one rule. No cats! I love cats, but anyone can find LOLcats on YouTube. So, that’s it…let’s share some smiles and make each other laugh. The video I’m sharing had me laughing out loud, by myself in the middle of the night. I was sure I was going to wake the neighbors. I honestly don’t know how this won’t make you laugh…so give it a shot.

Feel free to tag me on FB, Twitter, Google+, whatever social media you might use to share you video with others. Not only are you going share the best medicine in the world, but you’re going to have a blast doing it.

#lol #bestmedicine #funny #SadyStyleChallenge #Sadystika #video

Enjoy the video I’ve chosen here.

Blueberry

This isn’t really something I do very often, but for this post I’m going to talk about two stores. Well, mostly one, but I’m going to touch on another. I’m actually thinking that I might even do this more often. We’ll see. If you’re a regular reader, you know that the only norm to my blog is the lack of one. So, let’s just dive right in.

First store, I want to touch on is Stealthic. I love not needing a hair base when I wear Stealthic hair. If anything, I need to remove my hairbase. To top it off, he has recently taken on curls and they look absolutely amazing, especially in photographs. So, if you’ve never tried it (and if not, what rock have you been under) go grab some demos and check it out for yourself.

The main store that I want to talk about is, of course, Blueberry. Here’s the thing, I’m just going to get real with you here. I’ve heard people say, “Oh I don’t buy Blueberry anymore, because whenever she releases something new, everyone on the grid is wearing it.” Okay, but have you seen how many colors she has? Have you seen how you can mix and match her pieces from one outfit to another? The picture below is a prime example. This top came with a wrap around jacket and was released along side some adorable new leggings. However, I couldn’t resist mixing this top with the bikini bottoms from her previous release. You’ll see me mixing the bikini top with the bottoms next and there was another top with the bikini….a fringed top. That one is perfect with these bottoms or jeans….or even just panties. There’s no linden law that says you must wear Blueberry the way it was released. AND the more pieces you own? The more outfits you can make…and the thing is, they’re going to match, cuz its all from her color palette. Alright, I’ll hush now so you can go shopping….and take notice of how perfectly my Eurdora sandals are matching. *winks*

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.

What I Want

I attached a song to this post, because it has this crazy beat and uses one of my tag lines repeatedly, “I do what I want!” I really do what I want for the most part. Sure, there are limitations on what I can do because of money or whatever, but if it’s within my power, yeah, I really do what I want. I’ve finally figured out that relationships are not for me. It’s not that I don’t believe in love. I do. I just feel like I’ve had more than my share and now its time for me to let go of any fairy tale ideas I might have once had. I’m not pointing fingers at my ex-lovers, by any means. I just know that I’m a picky little bitch and I’m just done with committing myself to people romantically.
You see, I have a tendency to try and people please. A couple of years ago, I got in a relationship with an ex, just so a close friend of mine would no longer see me as a threat. However, recently it has occurred to me, that if someone finds me to be a threat to them in some way…that is THEIR problem, not mine. I’ve never stepped on the toes of my friends, not intentionally anyway. And I can assure you, the minute I knew I was even close to stepping on toes, I backed off. I’m not the kind of friend that stabs my friends in the back. Ever since my return to SL in 2014, I’ve been accused of things I’ve not done…simply because I made friends with the wrong person at the wrong time…or worse yet, they heard a rumor that was started by a small group of silly girls and assumed it was true without ever getting to know me. Now, I’m done bending over backwards trying to prove the rumors wrong. I’m not tip toeing around invisible glass to avoid upsetting anyone’s fragile ego, especially in the name of friendship. The way I see it, if you think I’m such a horrible person why bother trying to be my friend at all? Why bother pretending?
Clearly, they don’t know me at all and should probably find friends they CAN trust, even though I suspect that’s not entirely possible, since I’ve done nothing to lose said trust to begin with. Meh, I got my feelings hurt for a minute and now I’m rambling, but here’s the deal: Look closely at the menu, do the pictures EVER look the like the food you actually get served? Nah, they don’t. While you all sort out who you trust and who you don’t? I’ll be over here doing what I want and one thing I don’t want is people that call me a friend but make judgments and talk shit behind my back, rather than dealing with their own problems.

Kissing Frogs

I’ve about to decided that I’m going to refer to all my exes as frogs. I’ve kissed them all and not a one has turned into a prince, but they’ve certainly wasted no time in hopping away. They made a whole lot of noise and had no problem sharing my pad, but when it came down to it they all ended up back in the pond. Personally, I think they can stay there. Perhaps someone else will find a use for them….oh say, frog legs sauteed in a garlic butter sauce. *smirks* Either way, I’m done kissing frogs and going forward, frogs will just have to remain in the pond where I found them. I can enjoy them from a distance while partaking in some Kronic. *grins*

Anesthetize Me

“I said I was into you
You said you were into me…..

Looks like this love wasn’t meant to last…

You said you reap just what you sow
So tell me where does your garden grow”
~Funeral Suits – All Those Friendly People

So, the song is below the credits…and the bits of lyric quoted above really strike a chord with me. I don’t want to get into the details, but I think it’s fairly obvious what its all about. If not, well, maybe you should listen to the whole song, I dunno. I just know I’m tired of talking about my feelings. I’m actually kinda sick of the feelings themselves and talking about them. Well, it fuels my inner demons and I’m over that, too.

Three Phobias

I have three phobias which, could I mute them, would make my life as slick as a sonnet, but as dull as ditch water: I hate to go to bed, I hate to get up, and I hate to be alone. ~Tallulah Bankhead

I chose this quote, because I’ve grown up hearing about Tallulah Bankhead as she was born in Huntsville, AL, which is pretty much where I grew up. She’s got an amazing and very interesting history and if you’re at all interested you can read more about here on Wikipedia or simply Google her. She was definitely a woman to be reckoned with and certainly not considered to be well behaved in her time.
So, when I was asking my dear friend, Dusty, for help with what to write about for this photo, he asked me what did this picture make me feel. Immediately, I thought of women from history that stood out as mis-behaved during their time. It was at that moment that I exclaimed him a genius, while he had no idea what I was talking about until I told him a bit about Tallulah. Had he not made this so obvious to me, I most likely would have posted a song with this picture. Instead, I’ve reignited my fascination with a local legend that passed away shortly before I turned 3 months old.

Let’s Take Another Selfie!

I have to say that while the duck faces and bathroom mirror selfies are really amusing and tacky. I am grateful for the fact that our smart phones have helped us perfect those self portrait photos. I remember holding cameras up to take pics with friends and hoping for the best, only to find us headless when the photos were finally developed. I remember waiting a week for photos to get developed. It’s amazing how such a simple thing has changed our lives so dramatically. Just think, there are people alive today that know nothing about having to rewind film and dropping it off to have it developed into 4×6 prints…doubles if you were willing to pay extra! Now not only can we take accurate selfies, but we can take pictures of ourselves taking selfies! *giggles*
