Feeling Festive…for Now

It is happening! I’ve already changed my display name to Sαdy M’ғɴ Clαwѕ. Now I’m posing with reindeer and dogs dressed up like elves. Don’t look now, but it seems I’ve caught the Christmas spirit!! (This would be a good time to gasp and run for cover.) I’m so excited to dress up and decorate…everything Christmas. I wonder how long this will last? I know I won’t make it until Christmas. No idea how long it will be before I’m complaining about the commercialism of the holiday and if I have to look at one more “this” or “that.” Based on experience, I have quickly tired of it in the past. I hope this year will be different, as its the first time in years that I’m feeling even remotely festive.

Lift Me Up

This post goes out to my closest friends…my truest friends. I won’t list them by name, because they know who they are  and I’m pretty sure they know how much they mean to me. I can’t imagine where I’d be without them. To be honest, there have been a few times that if not for them…I’m not sure I’d be here. So, this song is for you all and know that I love you so freaking much, whether you’re an asshole or a cunt…you all mean the absolute world to me. ♥
For my readers, I urge you to tell your friends today how much you love them, because you never know how much that little gesture will make. ♥
“I’m trying but I keep falling down
I cry out but nothing comes now
I’m giving my all and I know peace will come
I never wanted to need someone
Yeah, I wanted to play tough, thought I could do all this on my own
But even Superwoman sometimes needed Superman’s soul
Help me out of this hell
Your love lifts me up like helium
Your love lifts me up when I’m down, down, down, when I’ve hit the ground
You’re all I need
And if you let go, I’ll float towards the sun
I’m stronger ’cause you fill me up
But when the fear comes and I drift towards the ground
I am lucky that you’re around”

In My Head

So, if you relate the first bit of lyrics below, click the link and you can sing along, read along, or just listen to the rest of the song. I’m not much in the mood to talk about my feelings at the moment, but the song is a clue for those that care. I don’t really expect anyone to…so its another post with lyrics. It’s 4am and this is where I am in my head.

“I know it’s not the same
But I feel it any way
Tell me if that’s okay
No, I’ll be on my way
Should’ve known, now I feel insane
Am I insane?
I’ve waited way too long
Yeah, I know you’ve changed
You have a different face to me
I guess that I was wrong
I’m the one to blame
And that’s a shame, you see
Uhh-uh-uh, you’re in my head
And I keep on forgettin’
Uhh-uh-uh, you’re here instead
And it seems never ending
Uhh-uh-uh-uhh, I know, I know you’ve changed
You don’t feel the same
Uhh-uh-uh, you’re in my head…”

My Sabrina

For those of you that know the song, I hope you heard “My Sabrina” to the tune of “My Sharona” cuz that’s totally how I heard it in my head as I wrote it. *giggles* Once again, this post will only mean something to those that have at least heard of the Netflix show, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Essentially, its a modern, more graphic, more dramatic version of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Or is it? What I found out is that what most of think is the original Sabrina from television is NOT the original at all. In fact, the original Sabrina stems from an Archie comic book released in October 1962. This eventually led to her having her own comic series, Sabrina the Teenage Witch. And THAT was the inspiration for the first television show that was on ABC & WB. However, as Archie and the gang were brought forward through the comic book series, so was Sabrina. As the stories took a turn and started being published under Archie Horror (another branch of the brand, I guess)…the comics went darker and were called The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. These newer, darker stories were the inspiration for Netflix’s new show. It makes perfect sense if you know about Riverdale which is about Archie and the gang already.
All of this brings us to the here and now. I was just making fun of the fact that our newest Sabrina looks exactly as she did on Mad Men. When I found the makings of this entire outfit at the latest round of FaMESHed. So, I present to you Sabrina the full grown witch that is still wearing that short hair and headband, but shorter skirts and bigger tits. You’re welcome. *giggles*

I Can’t Believe You

“I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

This is definitely one of my favorite quotes. I think more often than not, people tend to use it with significant others. However, let’s be fair, how many friends have you caught in a lie? I have major trust issues, but one of those issues is that I tend to be too trusting of certain people. Yet, eventually we have no choice but to open our eyes and face the truth. Some people are not real friends. They lie to us, they seriously insult us, and by doing both, they can seriously hurt us.
This is where I’m left asking myself a hoard of questions. Should I love that person unconditionally despite the toxicity of their attitude towards me? Should I try to understand where they are coming from, attempt to be the bigger person, and forgive them since they seem to be so clueless about what they are doing? Should I call them on their lies? Should I confront them about how deeply they’ve hurt me? Or do I walk away? Do I cut them from my life completely or just reduce our interactions?

this is what it feels like

Let Me Go

This says everything I have to say and more…

Avril Lavigne – Let Me Go ft. Chad Kroeger

Love that once hung on the wall
Used to mean something, but now it means nothing
The echoes are gone in the hall
But I still remember, the pain of December

Oh, there isn’t one thing left you could say
I’m sorry it’s too late

I’m breaking free from these memories
Gotta let it go, just let it go
I’ve said goodbye
Set it all on fire
Gotta let it go, just let it go

You came back to find I was gone
And that place is empty,
Like the hole that was left in me
Like we were nothing at all
It’s not what you meant to me
Thought we were meant to be

Oh, there isn’t one thing left you could say
I’m sorry it’s too late

I’m breaking free from these memories
Gotta let it go, just let it go
I’ve said goodbye
Set it all on fire
Gotta let it go, just let it go

I let it go and now I know
A brand new life is down this road
And when it’s right, you always know
So this time I won’t let go

There’s only one thing left here to say
Love’s never too late

I’ve broken free from those memories
I’ve let it go, I’ve let it go
And two goodbyes led to this new life
Don’t let me go, don’t let me go

Don’t let me go, don’t let me go, don’t let me go, don’t let me go

Won’t let you go, don’t let me go

The Desert

I’ve always wanted to see the desert. I’ve seen some beautiful mountains, both in the U.S. and in Europe, but the desert…nope. Maybe one day before I die, but it’s doubtful. I don’t foresee my ass getting on a plane, that’s for damn sure. As for a road trip? Sure, it sounds like a blast, but to be fair, if I’m heading west in a car, I’m heading for Utah. Clearly, not for the site seeing, but that’s where one of my best friends lives and I’d rather see her than some long ass stretch of sand. Which is what I’ve been told the desert looks like by those that have lived there. They don’t seem to find it all that impressive at all. I suppose that’s like New Yorkers never going to the top of the Empire State building or the Statue of Liberty. Sometimes it takes an outsider to appreciate the things we so often take for granted.

Anyway, all this hacienda themed stuff really had me thinking about that…and well, there ya go…that’s how my blog works…lol.

Achill Island

So, one of my best friends is Grace Sixpence and she has recently acquired a homestead. She had the sim professionally landscaped to represent an actual island in Ireland and it is gorgeous. I could not resist going straight over and taking a photo for my blog. I will definitely return for more photos and I encourage you to do the same. She has opened it to the public and you can join her group at the landing point. You can also post your photos to her flickr group. So, after your next shopping trip, head on over to Achill Island for a great photo with a fantastic background, no matter where you pose.

The Classy Cougar

When I was younger, there was this woman, my mother’s age, that lived in my neighborhood that always fascinated me. At the time, I thought how much I’d like to be like her one day. Alas, that was not my destiny. She was beautiful and elegant, at least I thought so. Mind you, I was young and rather impressionable, not to mention naive. I just remember that she wore lingerie whenever you saw her at home. No, not pajamas, but beautiful lingerie, with long sheer, lace robes…some even had that furry stuff around the edges…and heels! Oh, she always had on heels to match. She was quite popular, as I’m sure you can imagine. How does the line in the song go…”She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends.” She definitely had those.
For a long time, I just watched her in admiration, imagining what life was like inside her apartment. I eventually met her and she was every bit as amazing in person. I went inside her apartment and it was amazing. The colors, the curtains…she had so many beautiful things. I got to know her over the coming months. I could probably write an entire book about her. Instead, I’m sharing a brief memory of a glamorous Nubian queen that I met once upon a time, because when setting up this photo I thought of her. Isn’t it funny the impressions that people sometimes leave on our lives?

Make Me Vicious

Halestorm-Vicious

You make me vicious
Watch as I make the pain my mistress
You can call me Miss Malicious
I’ll dress you up in stiches
No I cannot resist this
If it don’t hurt I get suspicious
I like to take the knife and twist it
Babe, our love is sacreligious
I’m not scared to admit it
This violence is delicious
What doesn’t kill me
Makes me vicious
I’m not gonna break, I can take
All that you can give, this is survival
Of the sickest
I am not afraid, bring the pain
Watch out ’cause I’m vicious
And I’m not asking for forgiveness
Yeah I make you go ballistic
Your torture is our business
And I won’t leave a witness
I don’t care if you hate me
‘Cause you’re gonna have to face me
And there’s no use in crying
You know I would be lying if I said you could escape me
What doesn’t kill me
Makes me vicious
I’m not gonna break, I can take
All that you can give, this is survival
Of the sickest
I am not afraid, bring the pain
What doesn’t kill me makes me
Vicious
Vicious
Vicious
Vicious
What doesn’t kill me
Makes me vicious
I’m not gonna break, I can take
All that you can give, this is survival
Of the sickest
I am not afraid, bring the pain
What doesn’t kill me makes me vicious
What doesn’t kill me makes me vicious
What doesn’t kill me makes me vicious
What doesn’t kill me makes me vicious, oh!
