Her Surprise

Everyone said the house was haunted, but she didn’t believe in ghosts, so when they dared her to go in first she readily accepted the challenge. As she walked down the hall, she heard nothing but a stillness all around her. She turned to see where her friends were, “Would you guys c’mon and stop staring at my ass!” To her surprise she saw nothing, but shadows, “Oh cute, get your asses in here…no point in me leading a pack that isn’t following!”
She waited a few minutes, but heard and saw nothing. She had to admit to herself the place was a little creepy. She still didn’t believe in ghosts, but she sure as hell wasn’t going to keep going without them. She started heading back the way she came, but nothing looked familiar….

you comin

Two kids were passing the old house on their way to the park one day, “I heard that the last person that went in there…never came out.”

That One CD

That one damn CD, he played it endlessly. He left in the CD player when he moved out. She found the case in the garbage, right on top of the broken crystal vase and the remains of the snow globe he’d gotten her for their first Valentine’s day together. She found it almost poetic. Certainly where it belonged, too bad he forgot that stupid box of useless and tattered comic books from his childhood. She had half a mind to burn the damn things and dump the ashes on his new car. She had promised herself to take the high road, so she wouldn’t do that. Oh how she wanted to, but she dared not. Instead, she tied a string to the CD and hung it from the plant in the walkway outside of their apartment. He would get the message when he came to pick up the last of his things. She would be lounging by the pool pretending not to cry behind her sunglasses.

Ghosts in the Attic

She didn’t believe in ghosts, not the kind that go bump in the night, at least. For her, memories were the only thing that haunted her. She was quite careful to keep anything too sentimental in the attic, like her grandmother’s wedding dress and the french doors from the house in which she was raised. It was easier that way. Easier not to be reminded. Easier to forget. From time to time, she would force herself down memory lane by visiting the ghosts in the attic and sitting in the chair he grandmother used to sit in and have tea. These things were not forgotten, they were merely kept hidden safe like her secrets.

Get My Groove Back

Her divorce was final and she had treated herself to a tropical vacation. She’s read all about how Stella got her groove back by going to Jamaica, now she was ready for an adventure of her own. Having left only the minimal contact information with a trusted friend at home that would only call her if someone died, she stepped out on her own to take a holiday that was simply a break from her life.
It was her first day here and she wanted to just take in the view from the comfort of her tiny balcony. This was a private resort that offered all the amenities she needed and now…well…there was some very pretty eye candy walking around the pool. Oh my, she thought, maybe this is how I’ll get my groove back.

Welcome To My Darkness

“Welcome to my darkness, I been here a while
Clouding up the sunlight, hurting for a smile
Or something, but something always turns into nothing….

….Acting like I’m heartless, I do it all the time
That don’t mean I’m scarless, that don’t mean I’m fine
But you’ll see, when someone else makes you this way”
Bishop Briggs – Dark Side

Its no secret that I have a dark side, I make jokes about my dark side being the side of me that likes pink, girly things like unicorns and cupcakes. I’m actually not a huge fan of those things, but its hard to hate things that bring so much joy to others. The truth is that my dark side is probably my truest side. Few people in my life have seen the darkest parts of my soul and I doubt anyone else ever will. I work really hard to keep it in check, because it can frighten people. It makes life harder than it already is.
Even the mild hints at my dark side tend to frighten people. My fascination with black clothes had my mother convinced I was a devil worshiper when I was only 19 and at one point I had black hair with blonde roots, as I am naturally blond. I was obsessed with Robert Smith of The Cure and did my make up a lot like his. Goth wasn’t a thing then, not like now. At my last job, all my co-workers had scriptures and crosses…family photos decorating their cubicles. I had skulls and dragons. When I told them I’m not a Christian, they assumed I was a devil worshiper, too. I had to explain that atheists don’t believe in the devil either. *laughs*
As, I’ve grown older, I have found more of a balance between the dark and the light. It’s helped me quite a bit and opened my world in ways I never imagined possible, but I will always embrace the dark as much if not more than the light. Its just who I am. Just like I will probably always go to sleep with the TV on…the only shows being those about crime, naturally….preferably serial killers. *grins*
I’ve recently made some changes to the way I’m blogging. I’ve been writing short stories or scenarios to go along with the photo. This is just a way to bring that balance into my creativity. I love writing, but I will admit that I’ve enjoyed writing the scenes much more than opening myself up and sharing such intimate parts of myself. I can’t promise that I will always write a story or scenario for each post, but I do think I’ll be doing it a lot more in the future. I hope that you, my readers, enjoy them as much as I do. If not, there’s always the option to just scroll on down to the details. ♥

Grace & Sady Road Trip

“We should totally go on a road trip, Grace!”
“Yea, alright, but you’re driving, Sady, I’ve gotta bottle to finish,” Grace laughed as she turned up her bottle of vodka.
“No, problem, I love to drive. Besides, I can totally drive stoned, but you navigate!”
“Deal,” she says.

She failed to mention that she forgot her car charger for her phone or that she didn’t grab a map….way to go, GRACE!

a little help

So, we push and push our over packed car for like 1000 miles (okay, more like 1-2), but this drunk bitch in her sneakers is hardly helping at all…meanwhile, I’m trying to be careful not to destroy my new heels! “A little help would be nice, Grace!”
“What? I’m pushing with my butt, its the biggest muscle I have!”
“Fair point.”

really Grace

Funny thing was, as we pushed our ride into the gas station, you’d think that biker would offer to help, but he couldn’t stop staring long enough to pick his tongue off the ground. Must be our gorgeous new outfits from C88…*shrugs*
“Well, Grace….where do we go from here?”
“Sady, we need a hotel with a pool, I’m tired!”

pit stop

Stay tuned for the next chapter of the Grace & Sady Road Trip….it was so much fun collaborating on this project that we’ve agreed to do it again. We each did our own shots and versions of the trip now we just gotta wait for her to sober up…*grins*…for her side of the story, check out Grace’s blog.

Keep Your Head Up

I spend an inordinate amount of time in Second Life and there’s still not enough time to do everything I want to do, to see everything I want to see, to talk to everyone I want to talk to….so whenever I hear someone in Second Life say they’re bored…well, first I want to slap them. Secondly, I want to steal their time from them, because there is ALWAYS something to do! I’m sure I’ve written about it before, but I am never bored in either world. Aside from shopping, cuz let’s face it, sometimes we do go broke…there are live music shows, dance clubs, and there are new sims to explore all the time. Not to mention there are sims that have games for the avatars inworld. How can anyone be bored here?
If you find yourself getting bored, try hitting the destination guide. I used to play a game with my friends ages ago, too…you could give it a try. We’d pick a place and the first person we saw, we’d open their profile and teleport to the first place listed in their pics. Mind you, this can send you to someone’s private land, but it can still be worth a laugh. At each place you land, another person takes a turn finding a profile to perv and find a landmark. You’d be surprised how interesting this can be. So, keep your head up, there’s loads of things to do in Second Life and if you honestly can’t find anything to do…then log out. Go find something to do in Real Life…I bet you’ve got some household chores that could use your attention. I mean, really, when was the last time you cleaned the baseboards in your house? *grins*

Final Destination

Alright, so this story has absolutely nothing to do with the picture, but as I struggled with what to write about I was also looking for something to watch on Netflix. That’s when I remembered the first time I saw the movie Final Destination. Now for those of you that have not seen it, let me give you a brief little spoiler free description provided for us by IMDB: “After a teenager has a terrifying vision of him and his friends dying in a plane crash, he prevents the accident only to have Death hunt them down, one by one.”

So, the first time I saw this movie, I was living alone and I had gotten a copy of it from a friend. Okay, it was a bootleg copy and it was a very long time ago…so not the point of the story. Please don’t judge me too harshly. So, I popped it into my computer and turned off all the lights, because that’s the only proper way to watch a horror movie, right? Now I should probably point out something for those that haven’t seen it…when people die in this movie is it very bizarre circumstances…the kind of stuff that would be on that show Curious and Unusual Deaths. Okay, so its dark…I’ve watched the movie…I’m alone. The movie ends, I’ve jumped out of my skin more than I expected and its time to get ready for bed.
I’m not afraid of the dark, obviously. I know my way around my own 760sq ft one bedroom apartment. After all, I was a property manager for the apartment complex, I’ve shown this very apartment many times before. So, I get up and make my way to the hallway, forgetting that I had left the vacuum cleaner in the dining room, but plugged into an outlet in the living room. I tripped and crashed into a wall in the hall…I feel something graze my face and realize its a shelf I have on the wall, that looks like an open window. Holy shit, that could have put my eye out! Whew! That was weird. I make it around the corner to the bathroom, turn on the light…I’m not taking any chances after the hallway. So, I’m brushing my teeth when my black cat, Jasper, comes into the bathroom and starts doing circle eights between my feet. I lose my balance and almost impale myself with the toothbrush! WTF!?!?! That’s it, I’m going to bed!
I manage to change clothes without incident and I climb into bed. I notice the wind is blowing outside and I think to myself, “Oh a storm would be nice. I love sleeping to the sound of rain.” However, it was just a really windy night and my sliding glass window is rattling something fierce. Did I mention the window was directly over my bed? Yeah, so I’m thinking…the hallway…the toothbrush….oh hell no! I get up, I move my bed to the middle of the room. Away from anything that could fall off the wall and kill me. Now, I can relax, right? WRONG!
I’m laying in my bed, listening to the wind on the window, smiling to myself for being so smart and moving away from the window. Then I seem to have developed super sonic hearing, because I’m hearing the ceiling fan wobble with each rotation. Tick, tick, tick, tick, tick….oh god, that’s going to fall right onto me…its right over my bed! ACK! Nope, the bedroom is NOT safe! I grab my comforter and my pillow and head back to the living room…no worries, I was turning on all the lights all the way there. Slowly inching my way back as I turn them off again.
So, I’m all settled in on the couch against a blank wall. Nothing to trip me nearby (I put the vacuum away) and the path to the bathroom is clear. Got it. I can hear the wind on the living room window which is a safe distance away and I’m loving the peacefulness of it all. I’m finally going to relax and get some sleep. Suddenly, out of nowhere something heavy lands on my stomach…I scream…he hisses. Goddamnit, Jasper! Yeah, I didn’t sleep that night.

Waiting Game

Alright, so this is going to be another lyrics post and I’m going to add a little something at the end. Feel free to listen, read along, or skip to the details. *winks* You know I’ll never know.

BANKS – Waiting Game

I’m thinking it over
The way you make me feel all sexy but it’s causing me shame
I wanna lean on your shoulder
I wish I was in love but I don’t wanna cause any pain
And if I’m feeling like I’m evil, we’ve got nothing to gain

What if I never even see you cause we’re both on a stage
Don’t tell me listen to your song because it isn’t the same
I don’t wanna say your love is a waiting game

Baby I’m thinking it over
What if the way we started made it something cursed from the start
What if it only gets colder
Would you still wrap me up and tell me that you think this was smart
Cause lately I’ve been scared of even thinking ’bout where we are

What if I never even see you cause we’re both on a stage
Don’t tell me listen to your song because it isn’t the same
I don’t wanna say your love is a waiting game

What if I never even see you cause we’re both on a stage
Don’t tell me listen to your song because it isn’t the same
I don’t wanna say your love is a waiting game

need you now

I played this song for Josh while I was preparing this post and he just wrapped me in his arms and whispered, “It was smart.”
I melted as last night was our 7 month anniversary. For some that doesn’t seem like a long time, for others its an eternity. For me, its something pretty special, because I honestly thought I had a four month expiration date as the last 3 people I dated in SL never stuck around longer than 4 months, regardless of who decided to end it. So, to Josh, I have this to say, “If your love is a waiting game…I’ll wait.”♥

Lil Sady Peep

Soooo, I was going to try and write a little story about Lil Sady Peep counting her sheep, trying not to lose them and how each time she tried, she’d fall asleep, but I got drunk last night for the first time in ages. Yes, I know some of you find that rather shocking, but its true. Naturally it was tequila, but I’ve been on some new medications for the past few months and when my alarm went off reminding me to take said medicine at the same time I take it every night…well, my drunk ass took it. THAT was a bad idea. Those meds did not pair well with tequila and I spent about an hour throwing up, when I should have been crawling into bed. I did eventually make it to bed and I managed to stay hydrated through the night. This morning? Well, I don’t have the headache that usually accompanies a hangover, I merely have a fog. So, there shall be no story about lil Sady Peep and her silly sheep. You get a picture of a super sexy outfit from {le fil casse} that you can find at Loot Box and some hair from MINA , one of many you will find at the Hair Fair.
On that note, I wish you all a wonderful Sunday…and if its a holiday weekend for you, I hope you will stay safe….and hydrated. *chuckles*
