She’s Crazy

Josh and I had a lot of fun working on this picture. *grins* We were going to write this post together, but decided that this song says it all and more. So enjoy the lyrics and the song…it’s even more sensual than the picture.

“Let me tell you story
About a little girl I know
When she walks into a room
You know she steals the show
She’s crazy
And it’s more than I can stand

I’m just crazy about that woman
And she’s just crazy ’bout this man

She wakes me every morning
With that tender lovin’ touch
Some fools don’t get enough
But she just loves me too much
She’s crazy
And it’s more than I can stand
I’m just crazy about that woman
And she’s just crazy ’bout this man

She always wants me around
But I just ain’t got no time
But you know she got these little ways
To make me change my mind
She’s crazy
And it’s more than I can stand

I’m just crazy about that woman
And she’s just crazy ’bout this man”
JT Coldfire – She’s Crazy

Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark

Most of my friends will be quick to tell you that I have a very twisted sense of humor and a fit of giggles is often followed by extreme coughing as I often laugh so hard that I forget to breathe…and yes, on a few occasions I’ve passed out from laughing too hard.

muertos3I recently got quite tickled over phrases that can and often do sound dirtier in my head than they’re originally intended. One example is, “Things go bump in the night.” Even now I have the stupid little grin on my face, because all I can think is, “They do if you’re lucky!” As I was taking these pictures with the adorable little “dia de los muertos” pillow in the background I kept thinking about silly crass remarks like, “Killed it!” Which led to a series of much more disturbing thoughts that I won’t even begin to share.
*sneezes in Nish’ direction*            Oh! Excuse me!

This is one of the things I actually like about myself and I don’t think we acknowledge our good traits enough. Sure, we’ll put ourselves down and some of us can even accept a compliment, others not even that. How are we supposed to convince other people that we admire their qualities if we can’t even acknowledge our own? I don’t mean go bragging about something you can do. I mean personality traits. I have a wicked sense of humor and I enjoy it. While I know its not for everyone and is often ill-timed, I happen to think I’m pretty darn funny….most of the time. I’m no comedian, but I sure amuse myself and that counts for something, right? I realize there’s a fine line here. Some will go about telling the world how nice they are and how generous they are, but honestly…that’s not at all what I mean.  I’m thinking more along the lines of traits you essentially live with. How you are when you’re all alone with yourself. Are you kind to yourself? Do you make yourself laugh? Can you love yourself? (with the Hitachi, Nikole!) Have you pampered yourself lately? Why wait for the kindness, humor, love, and attention from someone else? Show yourself a good time!

muertosAnd I can’t even get through all that positive affirmation stuff without the dirty thoughts and yes, I’m quite sure it has nothing to do with my booty being on display. Okay, fair enough, the pictures probably don’t help, but hey, you’re still reading!
Yeah, so love yourself however you see fit, but do love yourself, even the dark and twisted parts of yourself. Cuz I’ve got to somehow tie this all back to the title I gave this post and really don’t want to change…so appreciate your weirdness and don’t be afraid of the dark.

What I Need

In the real world, I live in the Southern U.S. region and there are some pretty common phrases around these parts that have various meanings depending on the context in which they’re used. One of those is “Y’all need Jesus” or “You need Jesus.” I refer to the state of Alabama (where I actually live, don’t judge me) as the buckle of the bible belt. So, you can just imagine how often this particular phrase is used. It always amuses me a bit, because I am not religious at all, nor am I a Christian. While I do believe I have a spiritual connection and don’t dispute that there are definite powers greater than me, there’s not a particular religion to which I subscribe.

jesus hq

When I say it, and I think this is true for most people that say it, I’m telling someone they need help. I’m never serious when I say this, because I’m the person that suffers from such bizarre insomnia that I actually dream about not being able to sleep. People ask me all the time, “Do you ever sleep?” I promise I do, its just here and there. Sometimes, I can’t sleep more than an hour or two a day. Other times, I can’t stay awake for more than an hour or two. The latter usually happens when my body is beyond tired and the only way I can shut off this insane brain of mine  is by popping a Xanax. Once that kicks in, I’m useless until it wears off. Given my snail’s pace metabolism, that can mean a day or two at least.
With that said, my friends (especially my SL friends) find it particularly funny when I use this phrase. They also thought that I needed both this shirt and this hair…so here I am proudly claiming my Southern roots and all the silly phrases that go with it.

So…while the rest of y’all need jesus…my ass needs some sleep. LOL!

Mad World

“It’s a very, very mad world, mad world.” ~Mad World by Tears For Fears (or whichever cover you prefer)

I’ve long argued that the world is not worse than it used to be, we simply know more about what’s going on around the world due to technological advances. There’s not more child abuse, rape, war, hate, or all out madness. Slavery is still very much alive. None of these things went away. They simply found new ways to hide and we found a new way to publicize the truths..and sadly the lies.

mad world2

It truly is a mad world out there and I often find myself empathizing and at time envying agoraphobics. However, the simplest way to counteract the complete madness of the world is to contribute to the brighter side. To walk out the door with fear. To drop some change into the homeless person’s cup even if he might buy booze or drugs with it. Its my duty and my pleasure to be kind to strangers in a world full of fear mongering hate. I smile at the lady who scowls at me in the grocery store and on a good day, I’ll even chuckle about it later.

mad world full

There’s also a very twisted sick part of me, for I am no saint (I know you’re shocked!). I often find myself amused at the ridiculous stupidity of criminals. I’m as bad as the next person for making fun of orange political figures (there’s more than one, calm your tits) and empty headed news personalities. I honestly believe that for most of us it boils down to perception and personal responsibility. After all, we’re responsible for how we react and respond to the world around us. We each have a responsibility to ourselves to make the most of this mad world. I’m not going to be paralyzed by fears of terrorism or anarchy. I’m going to live my life to the fullest. AND if the day comes that civil unrest lands at my front door, well…I’m no doomsday prepper, so we’ll just have to wait and see. In the meanwhile, I’ll deal with what’s on my plate…you know the one in my lap that tells me I need to see a doctor about this pesky ear infection.

Sady and the City

A great city is that which has the greatest men and women. Walt Whitman

I realize I have already blogged about Elysium City of Templemore, but if you’ve been there you understand my enthusiasm and if you haven’t you should go soon. After only one visit you will surely share my excitement. As my dear friend, Grace Sixpence, so eloquently put it, “OMG! Everytime I’m here, I discover something new!” The same has been true for me. There is so much to see and explore, you could spend hours there and still discover something new. As if the scenery isn’t enough to draw you in…they present some of the absolute best live musicians on the grid quite regularly. A great way to keep up with what’s going on is to like the official Elysium City of Templemore Facebook page.

Sady and the City (back)

After shopping at Shiny Shabby, I knew exactly where I wanted to take my photos to present some of my latest finds. What I didn’t know is that I’d run into some of my good friends that were already there exploring or that I’d discover two new spots to shoot my photos. Okay, I actually discovered four, but only used two for this post. *giggles*

Sady and the City

I could gush on and on about this location, but I really want to encourage you to go check it out for yourself. Its truly beautiful and I am so grateful for all the hard work that went into it. I’m especially grateful that the owners have such a generous spirit and are willing to share this amazing paradise. It proves the quote by Walt Whitman, because this city is truly founded and fueled by great people.

My Memory

Your memory is a monster; you forget – it doesn’t. It simply files things away. It keeps things for you, or hides things from you – and summons them to your recall with a will of its own. You think you have a memory; but it has you! John Irving
memory
I can’t help but wonder if an Elephant’s memory plays such tricks. I’ve long envied the memory that elephants are known for possessing. However, after doing a little reading I found out that while they have a great memory, they have poor eyesight. What a trade!
memory 2

These pictures are something I’ve thought of doing for a while and just didn’t get around to it, because….well, I forgot, okay? Sue me. There have been so many shinies and so many amazing events. My inventory is a complete mess and so is my head. So, prepare yourself for a great many posts mixing new, recent, and older items as I attempt to sort this all out. In the meantime, I will do my best to put them together in ways that will please the eye and inspire your own beautiful ensembles.

My Happy Place

happy place2
Everyone needs a happy place, whether its a real place, a virtual place, or just somewhere you go mentally. About four years ago, a friend of mine took me to Hazardous and it has been my favorite place on the grid ever since. Its not a fancy place, but its peaceful and beautiful. Sometimes I think it seems strange that I can feel so renewed or calm, simply by visiting this virtual place on my computer. Sitting there with the combination of their music and the ambiance.
happy place1

There are a few places across the grid that allow me to recharge my mental and spiritual batteries. Each one delivering its own unique energy. Hands down, Hazardous remains my favorite, but its a place I tend to go alone or with someone special.

Shades of Silver

silver close up

I don’t have a witty antidote or funny story. I’m just crazy in love with this outfit. I love silver, so when I find gorgeous silver and gray items that just fall in line together…yeah. There are so many amazing events going on right now and by mixing some older things with some newer items from several events, I’ve put together this look that I’ve actually worn more than once! Shocking, I know. So, enjoy the pictures and if you get a chance check out the location where I shot these pictures…its absolutely gorgeous and I will definitely be visiting Saint-Pete City again for future photos.

Weed or Flower

“A weed is but an unloved flower.”
Ella Wheeler Wilcox

This simple line from Ella Wheeler Wilcox’s poem, “The Weed,” is so poignant. Without the love and kindness of those around us, would we not all feel like weeds? I cannot fathom where I’d be if not for the mingling of my spirit with the spirits of others throughout my life. Each one leaving its imprint on my soul. Each one playing its own role in my journey. Occasionally we are lucky enough to find a spirit that shines so strongly, that even after one short week of knowing them…we know our life will never be the same.

Keep your hearts and minds open as you go through life to insure that you allow such loving energy into your life. Allow yourself these blessings, for we are each deserving, and there is no need for us to be weeds…let love in and allow yourself to bloom. ♥

Power of Words

I love words. I love writing. Whether I’m worth reading is up to the reader. What I find amusing is the power we give words. Sure, when put together to make meaningful statements they often are deserving of such power. Yet, one word alone can so often offend so many when the meaning changes depending on the mouth that spews it.

power of words

Cunt is one of those delightful words that challenges many. I hear women all the time talk about how much they hate the word and how it offends them. Bitch is another one…but the list could go on forever. What I wonder is why we allow these words to have so much power over us. Why does the word cunt feel like more of an assault than the word chair?

If someone was to say, “Ya CHAIR!” Well, I think most of us would do a double take and laugh, “WTF?” Yet, let someone say, “Ya CUNT!” and people come unglued. Is one more true than the other? No? Then why so offended? Eh, something to think about. Call me whatever you want, just don’t call me….uhm…yeah, Idgaf…call me whatever you want. Except you, Tracy Redangel, cuz you’re a real cunt. *smirks*

**DISCLAIMER: Tracy is one of my best friends and I love her to pieces. She’s fine with what I said…so save you hate mail for a ginger with a soul..LOL**
