Don’t fall away

Memories are just where you laid them
Drag the waters ’til the depths give up their dead
What did you expect to find?
Was there something you left behind?
Don’t you remember anything I said when I said
Don’t fall away and leave me to myself
Don’t fall away
And leave love bleedin’ in my hands, in my hands again
Leave love bleedin’ in my hands, in my hands
Love lies bleedin’
Oh, hold me now,
I feel contagious
Am I the only place that you’ve left to go?
She cries her life is like
Some movie black and white
Dead actors fakin’ lines
Over and over and over again she cries

Don't fall away

I can and I will

Well, this year isn’t over yet and its just gonna keep dumping on some of us right until the bitter end. I just want to crawl into a hole and hide sometimes. Not just from this year, but from the world in general. There’s just so much happening around me and its a bit overwhelming. The diabetes thing is sooooo hard this late in life. I’m a creature of habit. Granted most of my habits are not good ones. Don’t you judge me! *winks* I guess for once in my life I am making resolutions, but not because I really want to. I have to! Time to work on that vision board, I reckon. *laughs* Y’all forget that I really am a Southern girl at heart. I’m doing my best to not get too stressed over all of this. Lots and lots of people live with diabetes and I will, too! I can do this. I will do this!

I can and I will

Listen or Read?

I recently broke down and got the Audible app. While I do enjoy the soothing tone of certain voices reading to me, I know how to listen to a sample of the narrator to know whether or not I should listen to a book or actually read it. There’s just nothing quite like the actual reading of a book while enjoying a cup of coffee or tea, along with the occasion petting of an insistent cat. I adore books. Not just the reading of them, but the possession of them as well. The distinct smell of an old library, a used book store…even a new book store with a built in coffee chain offering overpriced drinks and stale pastries…each place holds its own nuance. Well, I could ramble about this all day.
What I really want to tell the ladies reading my blog today is to check out this outfit from Seniha. OMG, I love it so much, I’ve worn it for three days. Get the fatpack and have fun with it. I’m pretty sure you won’t want to take it off either.♥

It’s all about Equal10!!

It’s all about Equal10!! Well, this post at least. I’ll readily admit that I am an event junkie! I love seeing designers from all over the grid all bringing out their latest and greatest in one place. Don’t get me wrong, I love some mainstore releases, too. Let’s face it, I love shopping! The thing about events, for me, is that each event usually delivers a certain flair. Equal10 has quickly become one of my favorites, because more often than not, I can count on at least three or four of my favorite stores to be presenting. This round is most definitely one of those. I did my best to squeeze in as many of my favorites as I could straight away. I mean, look at the list of credits! I love what I’m wearing. I love the pose. I love my surroundings.
I actually really love this photo and how it turned out. *winks at her haters* Yes, I used bokeh and an overlay. I know its not perfect and I’m by far no expert photographer or editor, but if you can’t love your own work….how can you expect others to like it? Naturally, with me loving the photo so much, it will probably do poorly on Flickr as that seems to be the trend when I really like a photo. *laughs* That’s just the way the Flickr cookie seems to crumble. The real point of this photo is to show off all the insanely good creations that the designers have shared with us at reasonable prices.

It's all about Equal10!!

Anyone But Me

Seven years strong with my therapy
Making mosaics of my memories
Puzzled with doubt, I’m my closest enemy
It’s like this girl is squatting in my identity
She’s a raver, a likkle libertine (ayy)
And a bouncer to my dopamine
Tried so hard to become a referee
To even out the game that’s between my mind and meLove me or leave me and let me be lonely
Inside my head, there’s a voice that controls me
I’d rather be somewhere else with anyone but me
Ooh, love me or leave me and let me be lonely
Been down so long now that happy is holy
I’d rather be somewhere else with anyone but me
Anyone but me (mmm), anyone but me (uh)She’s dependent, she’s my man and wife
Peckham preacher, give ’em bad advice
She just does the spendin’ and then I pay the price
Tryna be Calise but she always trip me twice
But, I know I could do better (I could do better)
Baby, we’re no good together (together, together)
You are you, I am I
Now you gotta go bye

Dear Customers

Some customers in Second Life make the most unrealistic and rude demands I have ever seen. From demanding attached panties, to suggesting that a successful designer is going to be crippled by the lack of a purchase by someone that has NEVER previously shopped their store before. Meanwhile, the CSRs, managers, and designers bite their proverbial tongues, put on a smile, and find the nicest ways possible to dismiss these incredulous demands. Once again, we are all witness to an elite group of people that genuinely think its okay to act like complete assholes from the safety of their keyboards and I will never understand it.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the option of built in modesty panties as much as the next girl, but I have and never will message a creator and insult them, demand, or even suggest that they cater to MY desires. I have personally witnessed people have a complete meltdown simply because a dress doesn’t come with attached panties. Seriously? Do these people address Calvin Klein because he didn’t sew panties into a dress? Of course not. These items are sold separately, as they should be. I’ve had customers absolutely raging because a black silk textured top didn’t match some black sweatpants. First of all, I want to know why they’re wearing silk tops with sweatpants, cuz that makes no sense. Oh wait, you wanted to dress up your sweats with heels? Oh okay, cuz THAT makes much more sense. *rolls her eyes* While some designers do keep to a mix and match color palette, not all do. Some creators choose to apply textures that are true to real life textiles. I appreciate both styles. Once again, I feel like we’re beating a dead horse by suggesting that people try on demos first. If you don’t try a demo first, you really should not complain about the shade of a color or the fact that you can wear the shoes you wanted to wear with those pants. Honestly, the world does not revolve around the desires of one virtual shopper.
I have to believe that these types of people have absolutely no clue as to the amount of time spent on one article of clothing. For instance, one shirt…it takes time to come up with a style, then create that style digitally….THEN there’s the rigging…seriously? Are you going to bitch, because YOU choose to wear one of the less popular bodies? I’m not going to call out any particular body, but surveys done by at least five designers that I’ve seen have shown that Maitreya and Legacy are the most popular bodies being used. So, considering the amount of time it takes to rig for just ONE body, much less the seemingly endless list of bodies out there, I cannot expect or even imagine that ANY designer would create for every single body. It’s simply not cost effective or efficient. It’s just like real life, I don’t expect to every thing out there to fit my fat ass and we all know that one size does NOT fit all! I realize you want what you want, but guess what? No one gets everything they want all the time. So, suck it up, buttercup…decide what’s more important to you. You wanna wear that obscure body? GREAT! Please don’t expect EVERYONE to create for it. Better yet, join the group for your body and ask the other people in that group where they shop. You’d be surprised how many people will offer to help you.
Here’s the thing, no one is forcing anyone to be in SL, much less is anyone holding a gun to anyone’s head to shop at any one store specifically. With all the crazy shit that’s going on in this world, especially this year, why would you ever begin to allow yourself to get so enraged over not being able to wear a certain item of VIRTUAL clothing??? Either calm down or log out. The way I see it…if you’re getting that bent out of shape over virtual clothing, you probably have some deep seeded issues in your real life that need to be addressed. Thus you really should stop wasting your precious time and energy on such trivial matters in a virtual world. Instead, grab a book or even a website to help you resolve your REAL problems. I assure you, no one signed into Second Life to be your personal punching bag….and one more thing, before messaging the creator, take a moment to read the included notecard and the designer’s profile. Seven times out of ten, you’ll find your answer and save everyone some time. *winks*
….most likely I will touch on this topic again, soon…lol

The Organic Post

There’s actually a story behind this scene. LOL. So, Damien, Precious and I went to the huge Nutmeg/RKKN sale this weekend. Afterwards, we went back to my platform to open packages, then I went afk. I used a ground sit in my AO, cuz I know these fuckers would shove me off if I didn’t. *grins* When I came back, Damien had started building a scene around me. I asked what he was doing and he said he was building me a scene! I quickly changed clothes to match the beautiful lemons and here I am telling you how this picture happened organically. Thus the organic post was born! Thanks, DamiWami! LOL…ok, its late, I’ve been sick, and I’m a little loopy, ok? Just pretend to be amused!

Just LION around

From the moment I saw these lions from Rezz Room, I knew exactly what type of photo I wanted to do. Lucky for me, I have some very patient friends that were more than willing to pose all pretty. What I was going for was one of those situations where models are doing an editorial spread and shoot on location. While they pose and look all aloof or bored, when deep down they are screaming inside because they are so close to the lions. The best part of this is that when Precious was posing, she didn’t even notice the lions until I showed her my raw shot. *dies laughing* I think she was too busy trying to look down my shirt! Meanwhile, we just dumped poor Damien in the back and told him to keep his hands to himself. *laughs* That’s probably why he’s shooting us the bird! *giggles* And Puss…well, she’s just my original toon that does as I tell her.

Paw to the Jaw

I love my cat. I really do, but I’m starting to understand why people prefer dogs. I woke up this morning to a paw to the jaw. Yep, that’s right, he walked on my face. My reaction was a slinging arm which resulted in a cat flung across the bed, followed by a soft murr. This was not a wounded cat sound. Trust me, I’ve heard plenty of those noises. Step on a cat’s tail just once and  you’ll never forget it. No, just three little gentle murrs. I couldn’t go back to sleep at this point. I had to get up and find out if he was okay. I’m not a monster, ya know? He’s fine. Once he saw that I was awake, his attitude suddenly changed. I swear that he looked at me and in his little meow language said, “Oh, you’re up! Feed me?”
Needless to say, I fed the little bastard and now he’s lying comfortably on his perch, licking himself. I’m pretty sure he’s quite proud of himself this morning. *looks out the window* FFS, the sun isn’t even up yet. I suspect there’s a nap in my future.

Old Habits

I’m flyin’
I’m flyin’ high like a bird
But my fluttering wings can’t keep you from pullin’ me down
Your mama
Your mama says I’m a fool
And yeah, maybe that’s true ’cause I can’t stop thinkin’ ’bout you
I’m tryin’
I’m tryin’ not to forget my words
‘Cause when I’m around you, I tend not to changin’ my mind
I promised
I promised myself not to slip back into old habits
‘Cause heartbreak is savvy and love is a bitch
