Wash It All Away

Many years ago, I learned how to let go of people, places, and things. To release my attachment to them no matter how deep the connection. If these things were toxic to me or other people in general, I had to let go. I can’t sit here and pretend like I have somehow perfected this act of release. However, thanks to being an Army brat, letting go of people and places has been a lot easier for me than most.. It’s important that we recognize the not so good stuff in our lives and learn how to wash it away.

In Second Life, that’s a much easier thing to do. Simply block and mute, done. So, what you come across a blocked avatar from time to time. If you feel the need to explain do it, but don’t attack them. You really have no right to point fingers and place blame on them. The best way to go about it is to simply tell them, that for whatever reason  you don’t mesh well and you don’t like the person you become around them. Because at the end of the day, isn’t that what it’s all about? I don’t like how someone, something, or somewhere makes me feel…so I remove myself from said person, place, or thing as soon as possible. While it seems like common sense, it also seems to be damn near impossible for some people. I can talk about this topic all day, so if you need help figuring out how to let go, I’m happy to chat about it. Otherwise, I encourage you to do some mental spring cleaning and wash it all away.

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*

Royals

“We don’t care, we’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams.” Lordes’ Royals

One of the many luxuries I enjoy in Second Life is the ability to change my address in a matter of minutes and redecorating my home in a matter of hours or days. I can live as luxurious or as humble as my mood determines. I’m not rich in real life and I’ve never been one of those that pursued the rich life. I remember when I was younger, there was a rather wealthy man interested in me and my mother was encouraging me to date him. Well, that was her first mistake, what 20 year old is going to date the man her mother wants for her? Not this one. More importantly, I just wasn’t attracted to him physically or mentally, certainly not emotionally.

Anyway, the real point of this post is that in Second Life we can be royals if we want to and there’s never been a better time to pursue that luxurious lifestyle, because coming up on September 1st The Arcade is back! Let the Gacha Games commence!
That means tons of fantastic & fun finds like the very posh Ramses Collection from Fancy Decor. This set includes 19 items, with three Rares! THREE! That means your odds are pretty favorable, yeah? If that’s not fantastic enough, the two chairs and sofa in this set? Yeah, they come with a color hud, which allows your four options. I’ve shown you the purple, but there’s a blue, a green, and silverish gray.
So, start saving up because this is just the tip of the royal iceberg, Baby! Stay tuned for more goodies from Fancy Decor and the Arcade, because I’m living the fantasy life and loving every minute of it. I hope you will do the same. ♥
