I could

It’s Monday. I’m on new meds. I’m still waking up. *sighs* I’m sitting here wondering what to write about, because everything on my mind is far too private to share. I could talk about the wonky weather. Meh. I could talk about the bruise on my hip in the shape of a paw print from my cat walking across me all night. I could write about my adventures in PhotoShop that really are not fascinating to anyone but me. *laughs* I could talk about how my mom farted in the bathtub so loudly last night that it sounded like a jackhammer was coming through the wall. I got so tickled with the idea that she was in there making a jacuzzi for herself. (That’s a movie reference for those of you that don’t get it.) *giggles* Alas, I’m just typing while I think and I’ve come to the conclusion that I just don’t have much to say this morning. So, I’m just gonna post this and hope you like the picture. *strikes a pose*

Dear Rando

Dear Rando,

Hi to you, too. Thank you for the compliment about my avatar. I’m glad you appreciate all the work I’ve put into it. Sure, your avatar is advanced and looks decent. I’ll say it looks good if you ain’t busted. I’m fine, thanks for this very basic small talk. I hope you have something else to talk about. Wait, why do you want to know where I’m from? Well, I’ll tell you the same thing that it says in my profile. I’m from the Southern US. I guess I’ll ask where you’re from, too. Though to be fair, I don’t really care, cuz I’m not coming to visit, nor will you be invited to visit me. Wait, did you seriously just ask how old I am, then tell me you’re old af without knowing how old I am? Well, look at that, you’re younger than me. I suppose that makes me ancient, Fucker. Whoa, hold up…why are you trying to kiss me? I don’t even know you! Well, let’s hope you just got the hint when I turned my head and your kiss landed on my cheek. You like me? Uhm…what do you like about me? The way my avi looks? Where I’m from? That I’m polite? That I’m older than you? I mean, that’s all well and good, but the old man at Walmart that greets me when I come in is nice and polite, too…but uhm…I’m not trying to kiss him. I like him well enough. He’s a nice old man, but we ain’t trying to kiss each other. Whoa, did you seriously just try to kiss me again? Stop it. I’m not THAT girl. I’m not sure what kinda girls you’ve been talking to, but I’m not like that.  Awww, now you’re not talking to me at all? *laughs* Well, now you know why I don’t just go around kissing randos in the club.
Listen, I realize that you’re a bit of a fuqboi, but at least get some game. Cuz that weak ass small talk conversation isn’t even going to pique my interest, much less make me want to kiss you. I appreciate your direct approach, but dang…you ain’t all that and I’m not some thirsty girl that’s so desperate for attention that I’ll put up with some ridiculous advance. Good luck getting laid. I hope you find a dumb thirsty girl or some game, cuz right now? You lame af.
Sincerely,
Not yours!

Hear Me Now

“I’m at the bottom, can you come let me up?
‘Cause I brought a flower for you
Your friends are faded, let me fill up your cup
And toast to the stars over
The ocean’s flowing
Emotions in the air
I don’t wanna live for nothing
Just wanna be something
I never knew what it took to win
I don’t wanna live for nothing
Just wanna be something
I never knew we’d be more than friends”

Don’t Worry

“Let advance worrying become advance thinking and planning.” ~Winston Churchill

Do you find yourself beginning your thoughts with ‘what if?’ What if the store is out of my favorite brand of wine? What if I don’t get that job? What if rains tomorrow? Worrying about things that haven’t’ even happened puts you in a state of stress, where you waste so much energy worrying about things you have no control over.  Well, here’s a suggestion. Rather than focusing on all those ‘what ifs,’ that are on your mind, create a solutions list. If the store is out of your favorite wine, think about an adequate substitute. Afterall, that’s not the end of the world. Keep sending out your resume and take those interview appointments. What else are you going to do if you don’t get THAT job, right? Pick an outfit that won’t be destroyed by the rain, have an umbrella ready, and a hairstyle that won’t take on a mind of its own. Now if it rains, it doesn’t matter so much, because you are fully prepared and you’re going to look great!
By going from worrying to planning mode, you can have a variety of solutions on hand regardless of the outcome. Besides worrying doesn’t change anything, but planning sure can.

Heartlines

I just don’t have the words. Seems to be happening to me a lot, perhaps I should stop bothering. I can easily find a quote for my photos and just offer links. Seems to be how most people blog. *shrugs* I woke up feeling weird and I can’t explain it.

Broods ~ Heartlines

We could fool the datelines
We could jump the statelines
I don’t wanna always play nice
But I wanna feel your heartlines
I wanna feel your heart
Have you been let down by the ones before?
Do you leave too soon to know?
Never fell in love ’cause I just cut loose
But not when it comes to you
Dressing in black, you’re around for the weekend
Dancing at night, you’re the light that I won’t let go
And I want you close
We could fool the datelines
We could jump the statelines
I don’t wanna always play nice
But I wanna feel your heartlines
I’ll pick you up at midnight
We’ll run to beat the sunlight
We only get the one life
And I wanna feel your heartlines
I wanna feel your heart
Now we’re far apart, in and out of touch
And the words don’t mean as much
So I sit across from someone new
But they don’t compare to you
Lying in bed wide awake, I remember
Dancing at night, you’re the light that I won’t let go
And I want you close
We could fool the datelines
We could jump the statelines
I don’t wanna always play nice
But I wanna feel your heartlines
I’ll pick you up at midnight
We’ll run to beat the sunlight
We only get the one life
And I wanna feel your heartlines
I wanna feel your heartlines
Lying in bed wide awake, I remember
I feel
Dressing in black, you were here for the weekend
And I won’t let go
‘Cause I want you close
We could fool the datelines
We could jump the statelines
I don’t wanna always play nice
But I wanna feel your heartlines
I’ll pick you up at midnight
We’ll run to beat the sunlight
We only get the one life
And I wanna feel your heartlines
We could fool the datelines
We could jump the statelines
I don’t wanna always play nice
But I wanna feel your heartlines
I wanna feel your heartlines
I wanna feel your heartlines
I wanna feel your heart

The Apothecary

My friend, Harlow Heslop, has opened another sim. She can’t help herself and I can’t say I blame her. So, while I was wondering about The Apothecary, her new sim, I ran across this cabin that reminded me of a place I once visited in Vermont. It was family owned and contained so many memories, but upon each visit they would have to clean away the vines, sweep away dried leaves, and dust everything. Naturally, I had to take my photo here. If you love to explore and/or take photos, I must encourage you to explore The Apothecary sim. It’s truly gorgeous.

My Zodiac Sign- #SecondLifeChallenge

I had so much fun doing Strawberry Singh’s challenge last week, that I decided to do it again this week. Today we’re doing the Zodiac challenge. In her blog, she states:
“Here are the instructions for the #SecondLifeChallenge this Monday: Copy and paste the following questions and answers into your post; then delete my answers and input your own. Don’t forget to leave a comment below with a link to your post so we can all come by and check it out!”

  1. What is your Zodiac sign?: (You don’t need to share your birth date if you don’t want to and if you want to do this using your Second Life avatar, you can use the rez date of your avatar.) My birthday is October 6 and I’ve always agreed that I’m very much a Libra.
  2. Do you believe in Astrology and read your horoscope often?: I do think there’s something to Astrology. However, generic horoscopes based on signs alone are bogus. There’s actually some science behind Astrology that can be really crazy accurate, but for that you’d need an accurate chart done. For that, the person creating the chart will need to know not just your birth-date, but the time, and location. All of that plays into a true astrological reading.
  3. What are some of the traits of your zodiac sign and do you feel they reflect who you are?: I am going to copy and paste the traits from the site that Strawberry shared, except for Libra and like her, I’m going to compare:
    1. Strengths: Cooperative, diplomatic, gracious, fair-minded, social – I’d like to believe these are true. Though I wish I were MORE diplomatic, for sure.
    2. Weaknesses: Indecisive, avoids confrontations, will carry a grudge, self-pity-I guess most of this is true. Although, some would say I do carry a grudge, I really don’t. Its just that once I’m done with someone, I’m done. I don’t walk around hating them or even thinking much about them at all. If they cross my path or someone brings them up, I might say something negative, but grudge? Hmmm, I’m not big on carrying resentments around me with. I just let go.
    3. Libra likes: Harmony, gentleness, sharing with others, the outdoors-This is very true, especially in the fall. I absolutely adore being outside in the cool autumn air…the leaves rustling in the wind. Yes, I’d say all of this is true.
    4. Libra dislikes: Violence, injustice, loudmouths, conformity-Absolute truth here. Ok, there are some exceptions to the violence. I don’t like real violence, but I do enjoy violent films and I quite often have violent fantasies about stabbing bitches in the face or punching men in their throats. *grins*

I’m curious if my friends would agree with the traits listed. They know me pretty well and could definitely tell you if these are true about me or not. And to continue following Berry’s lead….I’m going to try my hand at the Buzzfeed quiz as well. Here’s the link:
Can We Accurately Guess Your Zodiac Sign Based On How You Describe Yourself?
And it ended up being right:

REWIND

The whole point of the REWIND event is to take us back in time, let us have some fun with some looks of yesteryear. Well, they’ve done it quite successfully this round. Not only did the stores nail the theme, but the layout of this event made me want to go back before its over and take some pictures. I just hope I remember. *laughs*
By far one of my absolute favorite finds is the Vivienne Outfit from Dead Dollz. This is for several reasons. For one thing, the name reminds me of one of my favorite shows from the 80s, The Young Ones. I could not help but think of Vyvyan Basterd and how much I loved that show. There were only like 12 episodes, but I saw them all more than once and it never failed that my mother would walk in during one of the most disgusting scenes. Being a clean freak, she would shudder and wonder wtf was wrong with me!
Another reason I love this outfit is the bold yellow and navy option I chose…well, it has me feeling a bit like a punk super hero! I could crash lame parties and bring them to life with the likes of Sex Pistols, Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, and The Ramones! I could get down and show them some rocking moves as the party slid into a more chill feeling with some David Bowie! You’re feeling it, too, huh? Yeah, this event definitely brought me to life in some very fun ways!
Go get your REWIND on and see what you come up with, because there’s absolutely no shortage of plaid, black, skulls, and safety pins at this round.

Have Some Fun

Anyone that’s friends with me on Facebook could know what sort of hijinx I got into last night. To be honest, circumstances in RL are a bit peculiar for me at the moment. So, I most certainly did wake & bake. Its going to be a relaxed, fun day for me, because this afternoon I’ll be hosting two older ladies coming off of a roadtrip. You see, my mother and my uncle’s widow will be coming back from my Aunt’s funeral this afternoon. My mother hasn’t stopped crying since the day before Easter when he sister passed away. Awww, don’t be too sad. Don’t celebrate or anything, but…my aunt lived a very full life. She traveled the world…as recently as two years ago…she was in London. Apparently my uncle wanted fish n chips every day. She was the mother of three pretty impressive kids, even if the one in Africa is a waste of space. (story for another day)
She’s been a grandmother for more than 20 years. In fact, she was a great grandmother. She lived in the mountains, bears literally climbed around on her house, but never once hurt them nor did they find any mutilated deer, regardless of how many hung about her house waiting for food. Think of a religious, slightly backwoods Disney film…*nods*
So, see? She had a pretty decent life. All in all, I’d say it was pretty successful.
With all of that said, I am just wanting to have some fun before my elders arrive home-ish from their 9hr-one way, crappiest reason ever, roadtrip. I know I need to have some food ready, but that’s about 10hrs from now…so in the meantime….*eyes her magic cookie*…thank goodness, Eli didn’t find it!
