Before Love Came to Kill Us

I know nobody gets outta love alive
We either break up when we’re young
Or we say goodbye when we die
For a moment at least I know
You were mine and it was beautiful
But winter comes and roses don’t survive
It’s gettin’ late
And I should go
But I wanna hold ya
Like it’s June in the west end
Back when you were my best friend
Before love came to kill us
We’re not supposed to
But I can’t learn my lesson
I miss when you were my best friend
Before love came to kill us

Let’s Talk About Pumpkins

Today, we’re going to talk about pumpkins, boys and girls! There’s a time and place for all things. I realize that, at least in the U.S., pumpkins signify Autumn and for NORMAL people Thanksgiving…pumpkin pies, perhaps even a pumpkin roll or pumpkin bars with a nice cream cheese filling/frosting. Now, I can’t speak about the rest of the world, but our president isn’t the only thing orange around here this year. America has gone too far! We have pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING! Coffee….just ew. Cookies….eh, ok, not everyone knows how to bake or has time, but for me…nah. Even those two things I can handle. However, you cannot go into a store that sells groceries without being inundated with all thing pumpkin…it’s starting to feel a bit like Bubba Gump ran out of shrimp and started in with pumpkin. From condoms to vodka, we’ve got pumpkin cereals, oatmeal, waffles, poptarts, pancakes…coffee, creamer, ice cream, yogurt, eggnog…marshmallows, M&Ms, Hershey kisses, almonds, granola….soup, jello, hummus, syrup, crackers…ffs even pumpkin flavored breath strips! There’s even pumpkin butter (like peanut butter) and regular butter, pumpkin Pringles, Doritoes, Peeps,  beer, bologna, chewing gum, literally pumpkin chips,…ya know, veggie chips other than potatoes that they convince people are better for you? There’s even pumpkin flavored toothpaste! And I shit you not about the damn condoms and vodka. I could sit here and bore you to pieces very much like Bubba Gump went on about shrimp, but even Bubba had the good sense to know that shrimp doesn’t belong in EVERYTHING! Don’t even get me started on the pumpkin scented items…from candles (understandable) to sanitary napkins (yes, I’m serious).
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not anti-pumpkin, but again…time and place…I like them for decor and in pies. There are a few other home baked exceptions, to my personally approved pumpkin flavored list, but I can assure you that Oreos and water are not on the damn list!
Let’s talk about one of the most welcome places to find pumpkins this time of year…decor! I’m not talking all the crazy painted colored pumpkins, but this dining set from Fancy Decor (always tasteful decor) has done it right. Simple…small…metallic pumpkins set the tone for this dining room set perfectly and I’m more than pleased to introduce a touch of fall to my beach house with this beautiful Abigail Dining Collection. You can grabs yours from Collabor88, join me in keep pumpkins where they belong this year…in decor and pies. Yes, I’m talking to you, Tracy Redangel, I know you can’t wait to get down to Starbucks and order that pumpkin latte. *rolls her eyes and wanders off to find something NOT pumpkin flavored to eat for breakfast*

Steampunk

“Steampunk is…a joyous fantasy of the past, allowing us to revel in a nostalgia for what never was. It is a literary playground for adventure, spectacle, drama, escapism and exploration. But most of all it is fun!”
George Mann

I love this description of Steampunk, because it suits us all so well in Second Life, too, doesn’t it? This is a virtual playground full of adventures, exploration, plenty of spectacles, and God knows we’ve got more than our fair share of drama. I think for most of us its a form of escapism, as well as a creative outlet. I don’t have a lot of experience with Steampunk, so I won’t even pretend to know anything about it other than it looks super cool! Its fun to dress up and decorate with various steampunk and industrial styles in SL. I’ve gathered quite a collection over the years and have rarely displayed any of it outside of my home (which I am constantly changing), but when I saw this corset from Elegance Boutique, a steampunk scene immediately began unfolding in my head and this is the result.

I’ve listed everything in the photos and its quite a list. Just know that it was the corset that sent my mind whirling into the Eye of the Storm that is now my little world of Steampunk. As there are soooo many color options available, just imagine what it will inspire you to do. *winks*
