NOW, I’m ready!

Ok, I’ve stuffed myself with food the way you stuff a plushie at Build-a-Bear! Now, I’m ready for Christmas. No, I don’t mean the dinner, I mean the decorations. I think the delicious food makes me so complacent that I can embrace my belly and laugh right along with jolly ol’ Santa!!! In fact, I might just waddle around behind him and embrace feeling small in his shadow. *laughs* Seriously though, its always been a tradition at my house to decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving.
I’ve never been one to decorate every room in the house. I keep the decor in the living room and dining room, maybe a little ceramic tree in the guest bathroom provided there’s room. Once upon a time, I did the whole yard and lights on the building, but I’m too old and lazy to be climbing on ladders nowadays. Okay, mostly scared and lazy, ok? I’m not the most graceful person on the planet.

NOW, I'm ready!

Exploring Midnight in Paris

I love exploring photographic sims. I’ve been a fan of the BKLYN sim since the first time I visited. It is the absolute perfect city sim and fortunately they have a group now that allows for rezzing. They didn’t the first few times I visited. Recently, that group has done up another sim called Midnight in Paris. I finally was able to take the time to explore yesterday and it did not disappoint. It looks the best if you use their region windlight. (I’m not on the whole EEP thing yet.) This sim is perfect for photography and/or a romantic little date. There benches all over the city to provide some romantic conversations and there’s even a small cafe right on the street. I recommend turning on sounds, because the hustle and bustle of the city really adds to the experience. You might even hear some cats fighting in the alley. I did. I won’t say much more, because I encourage you to visit and see for yourself.

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.

I don’t wanna talk about it, there isn’t much to say
I don’t have an excuse to why I won’t come to your party
And I don’t want my picture taken, I’d hate it anyway
No, I don’t wanna spoil your night, just go have fun without meI’m pushing food around my plate
‘Cause my father said I’m overweight
Well, maybe he’d feel better
If I just disappeared altogether and I
Got so good at faking smiles
I can do it for a little while
Just don’t ask me if I’m okay
‘Cause I’m not okay, noIt’s hard to show you something invisible
No tears, no scars, no bruises, It’s not physical
It’s covered up and hidden tight
Beneath the skin, inside the mind
You wouldn’t even notice, you wouldn’t even know
Invisible, invisible, invisible

Is your soul truly so dark?

I get so frustrated with people who square off over stupid shit in Second Life. There are so many awful things happening in the world around us. There are people of all ages being raped and traded like toys among rich privileged pricks. Some are children and some of these children grow up…SOME…and some of those grown children have landed on the grid. No, I’m not one of them, but I know more than one. Put down your stupid squabbles over territories and virtual lovers. If you want to walk away, that’s fine, do it. Walk away, but don’t you dare drag their names through the mud for something you did or over some virtual sex or even something equally silly. Just stop it, already.
You want to be a real adult? No? Me either, but here we are…that choice was taken from most of us a very long time ago. So, yes, stand up for yourself and walk away from those that make you unhappy. Walk way from them, but hold you head high and leave without making things worse. And when someone walks away from you and makes it perfectly clear that they’re done with you? Let them go. Don’t chase them down demanding explanations. Don’t insist that they listen to your side of the story. LET IT GO! Pour your energy into things that make your life better. Pour your energy into things that make the world better. I assure you that hate NEVER makes anything better. This world has more than enough of it already. Is your soul truly so dark that you wish to feed that monster? I don’t want your answer. Your heart does.

Ain’t no rental

Independent, athletic
I been sweating, doing calisthenics
Booty vicious, mind yo business
I been working, working on my fitness
I’ve been lifting heavy metal
See this ass? Ain’t no rental
Take it down low like just stretching
Pick it back up like I’m flexing
Woo, tryna get it, working on my fitness
Think about how I’m gonna feel when I step up on the catwalk
Think about how I’m gonna feel when I got that ass that don’t stop
That ass that don’t stop, that ass don’t stop
And think about how I’m gonna feel when I take it all off

I don’t want to love no more

I learnt to grow old when I was younger
Scared of staying young
Afraid of the thoughts that I had conjured
That sat atop my tongue
Knowing I’d change the worlds opinion
If they would just, listen up
But they won’t, now
I feel worthless
Maybe I should open the drawer
Burn the pages
Write poems with the ash on the floor
Pour the ink, into the sink
And watch it drain from the shore
I don’t want love no more
Though it’s the one thing I’ve been searching for
Though it’s the one thing that I miss the most
Now, I’m afraid to be alone (I’m afraid to be alone)
To Be Alone
Looking in the mirror like
Maybe I will find myself tonight
I ask for a better mind
Then tap into the site through my third eye
I had never realized
I thought I had a chosen my design
I thought I was broken all this time
I don’t want love no more
Though it’s the one thing I’ve been searching for
Though it’s the one thing that I miss the most
Now, I’m afraid to be alone

The colors are fadin’ out

The colors are fadin’ out
Is it quiet where you’re sleepin’?
Your records, my empty house
I wish I knew what you were feelin’

Fightin’ every instinct while you hold your pride
Back to the beginning, it swallows my mind
You’re all that I think about
I even see you when I’m dreamin’

I wish that I could hate you, ah, baby
I wish that when I left, you’d of chased me
I didn’t wanna change, but you made me
Now you’re tellin’ all your friends that I’m crazy

Hard to believe that you ever really loved me
I made believe that you cared when you touched me
I know I’ll be movin’ on

Not Anymore

I’m having quite a bit of anxiety this morning. My mother and I are supposed to go get our hair cut today, but I’m in a great deal of pain. Plus, I’m so scared of the lackadaisical attitude that so many people have about the virus. The numbers are soaring in our area right now. I honestly don’t feel that she or I would survive given our kidney disease and other health issues. Once upon a time, I would have rushed out into the world hoping to get it and die. Not anymore. I finally want to live and I’m damn sure not ready to die for a freaking hair cut. I don’t want to go and I don’t want her to go either. The only alternative is for me to cut her hair myself and…well, I can trim my own without messing it up too much. I’m just not ready for some stranger to be in my personal bubble. I don’t think I can do it.

I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant

It’s been seven hours and fifteen days
Since you took your love away
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away

Since you’ve been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing
I said nothing can take away these blues

‘Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you
