Panties

Don’t get your panties in a bunch.
Don’t get your panties in a wad.
Don’t get your panties twisted.
Don’t get your knickers twisted.
In other words, calm down, right?

Has this ever worked? I used to work in collections for a major telecommunications firm years ago and one of the first things they tell you is NEVER tell a customer to calm down. They went on to say that it has been proven time and time again to only enrage people more. Calm down. Two simple words, but when used together and told to someone that is seriously upset (regardless of why) it does not work. So, we came up with funny ways to say it to our friends and family like the panties and knickers lines.

Guess what? It works a lot better. For one thing, if delivered the right way its just going to snap your friends or family out of their breakdown with a laugh. Laughter is the best medicine after all. Which one of a thousand reason why marijuana is so awesome…just throwing that out there. Anyhooo, I was taking pictures of these amazing new panties from Phedora and got tickled thinking about how often we tell people what to do with their panties and knickers.

What if…we get real?

How was your day?
Such a simple question to ask, but it can make a world of difference to the person you’re asking. Its usually the first thing I say after, “Hi Baby!” when I see Sino each day. Whenever I’m excited about something, I tend to make my story first followed by embarrassment for not asking him how his day was first, because honestly…what if he had a bad day? Is he really going to be happy that one of my photos was chosen for the cover of a Flickr group? Sure, deep down, but probably not what he wants to talk about, then again it might be just the distraction he’s looking for. I won’t know until I ask about his day.

welcome-home2

I’ve been thinking about this a lot. We often start conversations with, “How are you?”
On occasion someone give an honest answer, but do we really want to know that their IBS is acting up or that they just stubbed their toe or that their boss just laid into them over some stupid project that’s not even due until next week or its shark week and I swear to God if I sneeze there will be a crime scene worthy of Dexter in my pants? I think some of us do really want to know and yet when people ask us how we are…most of us give a general answer like, “I’m fine and you?”
Then we wonder why conversations die. What if we got real and honest with one another? I know, it seems almost like a foreign concept these days in Second Life, but for those of us that are REAL friends and do discuss real life, it might be interesting, dontcha think? I dunno, just food for thought from the depths of a twisted mind.

Let’s talk about the stuff for a minute. It seems like another event opens every day and its getting harder and harder to keep up, especially if you’re on a budget. However, there are certain items out there that just call to you and no matter how many suits you own or how many thigh high boots you already have…we won’t even discuss hair…you just have to have THAT! So, I’m sharing some of my absolute must haves with you…from Sino’s awesome suit and my outfit to some stuff for my house, because anyone that knows me knows I’m always decorating and my home is forever evolving. Enjoy!

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.

Ready

You tell me that you’re ready but you just don’t know
My eyes are getting heavy and it’s starting to show
Never seen it coming, never seen a thing
Maybe I’ll get through what’s ever coming to me
~Kodaline’s “Ready

Sometimes we just have to walk up the line we thought we’d never cross and just step forward. Whether that line is the edge of something new or walking away from something that’s holding us back. Scariest of all, is that the line might just be one of the biggest gambles of our life. We have to follow our hearts and let ourselves step up to that edge.

I’m staring at such an edge right now and wondering whether or not I’m truly ready. Is it worth the gamble? Is it really a gamble at all? I’m risking the unknown if I cross that line. I’m asking myself over and over am I ready for the absolute worst consequences. What’s coming my way if I go…right over that line? I can’t know unless I’m willing to cross it.

ready

One thing I know for sure? I’m ready for a change. I’ve let other people determine too many limits in my life and I just can’t keep letting that continue. Its time for me to take charge of my life and do what I believe is right for me…even if that means it might hurt someone I love. *sighs*
