Waiting Games

Electronics have become the common go to method for passing time. Its evident in waiting rooms around the world as people stare into their phones and tablets. Most of us take them everywhere. Hopefully, we put them down while we drive! I do, so should you, but no lectures today. ☺ I hate to admit how attached I’ve become to my smart phone and other electronics to be honest. The cats and dog have been trained to avoid cords and to use caution when humans are holding their phones. Fortunately, I rarely run into a dead battery, but there have a been a few times that I’ve had to put them all down so they can charge and the waiting game begins.
waiting
Its always when my electronics are temporarily out of reach or commision that I remember all the things I need to do with them or to them. In turn, I’m creating an even bigger need for them, which then makes the waiting all the more agonizing. Those that know me well know that I have no tolerance for boredom. I will always find a way to amuse myself no matter what the situation. I am an only child that spent a great deal of my early childhood in isolation. I have a fantastic imagination and I will find adventures at every turn. I’m sure we all played the “hot lava” or “sharks/gators in the water” games when we were kids, right? Hopping from one piece of furniture to another…taking great care to never touch the floor, while giggling and squealing with delight as we narrowly miss our imaginary doom. Now here we all are in a virtual world playing with virtual clothes and furnishings and still escaping doom! At least escaping it for a while anyway…*giggles*
waiting still
I realize I’m sort of rambling, but that’s how my mind works sometimes. Welcome to the madness! What started this train of thought? I’m glad you asked. Yes, you did ask…this conversation is happening in MY mind and it was there that you asked just that question. Now, hush and let me answer. *grins*
I was putting together the scene above to display the Ramses Collection from Fancy Decor for the September round of The Arcade, which we are all anxiously waiting for…see what I did there? I know I mentioned the set a few days ago and teased you with a sneak peak, but  there are 19 pieces available in this set and each piece is exquisite. In the previous post about the collection I indicated that the chairs and sofa come with a hud that allows you to change the color of the fabric. I showed you a gorgeous purple chair. As I put this room together I knew I had to show you the luxurious silver suede. Isn’t it stunning?
Okay, so why insert myself in a picture about furnishings? Because I’ve been waiting days and days for the dress I’m wearing here and since the post is called Waiting Games, its only right that I show you something else that I waited on, right?
See, what’s happening here is that I’m showing you a way to fill that little void of time between now and when The Arcade actually opens, plus you’re going to want to look your best while shopping, right? Naturally all the details are below…Happy Shopping! ♥

Fighting For Peace

“Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.”― George Carlin

This has been one of my all time favorite quotes for a very long time and with all of the wretched violence going on in the world right now, it makes more sense than ever. I won’t get into my political views or where I stand on so many of the violent events happening, not just in my country, but around the world. I just want to point out that no matter what side of things you stand on….violence is NOT the answer. It is not until we stand together against the violence that any resolution can occur.

fight for peace
Too many innocent people are being murdered around the world for no reason. More than ever, please try to cherish one another and remember that everyone is cherished by someone…no matter what you think of them…someone loves them and its not all about YOU. The world is a big place, we need to take care of it and each other. *steps off her soapbox and starts kick boxing with Sino*
