Cruel Wold

“I’m putting you out of your misery
‘Cause darling you’re dragging me down
I wish I could say that I’m sorry
But I’m over that, now I’m taking you out
It’s a cruel, cruel world
I used to see beauty in people
But now I see muscle and bones
You know I never wanted to hurt you
But I’m sorry, my friend, this is the end
So I’m saying my goodbyes
Goodbye to my good side
It only ever got me hurt
And I finally learned
It’s a cruel, cruel world
It’s a cruel, cruel world
Erase you from my mind
I’m sorry, but I
I’m cutting all the ties
So I’m saying my goodbyes
Goodbye to my good side
It only ever got me hurt
And I finally learned
It’s a cruel, cruel world
It’s a cruel, cruel world
Cruel, cruel world”

Blanket and Magnet

It’a another Challenge to Challenge post!! First off, I have to fangirl just a bit. Exis actually gave me this challenge and I’m a huge fan of her work. If you’re not familiar with her, you must check her out! So, she gave me blanket and magnet, which worked out perfectly for this post, because of the dogs. Let the short story unfold…

She didn’t have children in the traditonal sense, but she had two beautiful female huskies that she referred to as her dogters. Blanket and Magnet were named for their behavior, as Blanket had dragged around some type of covering since she was brought home. She had quickly discovered how to cover herself with it, too. Magnet followed Blanket every where and always had to be touching Blanket or the blanket she used to cover herself. This was to be their first Christmas as adult dogs and though Sady was quite sure that her furry children had no understanding of the holiday, she wanted it to be special for them. Each day they received a special little treat from the advent calendar and each day she added more to their Christmas scene. Magnet had gotten tangled up in the lights, but didn’t want them removed. For now, Sady would allow it. She drank her hot cocoa as she reflected on the past year and everything that had happened. She looked lovingly at her girls and found gratitude that there were at least two creatures in her life that had yet to betray her.

You Can Never Hurt Me Again

This is a story that I have never told
I gotta get this off my chest to let it go
I need to take back the light inside you stole
You’re a criminal
And you steal like you’re a pro
All the pain and the truth
I wear like a battle wound
So ashamed, so confused
I was broken and bruised
Now I’m a warrior
Now I’ve got thicker skin
I’m a warrior
I’m stronger than I’ve ever been
And my armor, is made of steel, you can’t get in
I’m a warrior
And you can never hurt me again
Out of the ashes, I’m burning like a fire
You can save your apologies, you’re nothing but a liar
I’ve got shame, I’ve got scars
That I will never show
I’m a survivor
In more ways than you know
‘Cause all the pain and the truth
I wear like a battle wound
So ashamed, so confused
I’m not broken or bruised
‘Cause now I’m a warrior
Now I’ve got thicker skin
I’m a warrior
I’m stronger than I’ve ever been
And my armor, is made of steel, you can’t get in
I’m a warrior
And you can never hurt me
There’s a part of me I can’t get back
A little girl grew up too fast
All it took was once, I’ll never be the same
Now I’m taking back my life today
Nothing left that you can say
‘Cause you were never gonna take the blame anyway
Now I’m a warrior
I’ve got thicker skin
I’m a warrior
I’m stronger than I’ve ever been
And my armor, is made of steel, you can’t get in
I’m a warrior
And you can never hurt me again
No oh yeah yeah
You can never hurt me again

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

Snack & Other Terms

So, I recently learned a new term on Facebook. Apparently, women are snacks now. I’m not quite sure how that started or why we’re not a full meal or dessert, but its nice to know that men are thinking about eating us. *grins* Okay, so apparently according to the Urban Dictionary, it can go both ways. I just can’t imagine myself or any girls I’m close to ever referring to a man as a snack.
We’ve all heard the word “Bae” and its on that disturbs me to no end, especially now that I’ve done a minute bit of research. According to the Urban Dictionary (clearly a viable source for information) the word Bae is a Danish word for poop. Considering how many Danes are in SL, I can’t help but wonder how amused they must be when someone refers to their romantic partner as poop.
Turns out that ratchet is a mispronunciation of the word wretched. Between you and me, I like wretched much better. However, apparently this started in Louisiana and I’m guessing it was a Cajun accent that made it sound like ratchet and so it spread to various parts of the world.
I’m learning so much!!! In fact, I discovered a whole list of terms used for women that are not so favorable. Some of them are just hate speech, but you can look for yourself…as it came from the most reputable site of all *snickers* the ever knowing and never wrong, Wikipedia!
I think I’m neither ratchet nor bae, but I suppose one might find me appealing as a snack at least in the photo below

I’ll Wait For You

Skylar Grey – Come Up For Air

I’m no good for you
I’m not what you need
You’ve made it very clear
Though I disagree
Enough to let you go
To let you drift away
‘Cause once you navigate these troubled waters
I believe that someday you’ll return
And I will still be here
When you come up for air
Do you what you gotta do
I’ll wait for you, to come for air
‘Cause this whole wide world
There’s no one else for me
So while you search the seas for answers
I will still be waiting here
Make sure you dive down deep
Because if you do
Even though it takes a thousand lifetimes
My love, I know you’re finally gonna see the truth, and you’ll return
And I will still be here
When you come up for air
Do you what you gotta do
I’ll wait for you, to come for air
And even if this really is the end
I’m sure I’ll be alone until I’m dead
‘Cause no one else will ever quite compare
To them, it wouldn’t be fair
To let you with somebody new
And all I did was think of you
If you’re my Jack then I’m your Rose
And I promise I’ll never ever let go
And I’ll still be here
When you come up for air
Do you what you gotta do
I’ll wait for you, to come for air
To come up for air
Come up for air
Come up for air
To come up for air
To come up for air
Come up for air
Come up for air
To come up for air
I'll Wait For You

The Ugliest Thing I Could Find

So, the tie dye pattern on this Migle dress from United Colors reminded me of one of my favorite shirts when I was about 18. There’s actually a funny story about that shirt. My parents got divorced when I was 15, for the first year my mom cried almost every night. After that she went a little wild. She was going on trips quite regularly, but being the awesome mom that she was, she would always bring me a present. Being the mom with awful taste meant I wasn’t going to like it if it was clothing. Then lo and behold she returned from a trip with the most awesome looking black and white tie dyed shirt I had ever seen. It wasn’t even a tee shirt, it was like a wicked blouse! I was so shocked and happy. As I’m standing there hugging the shirt, then holding it up, then ripping off my current shirt to try it on, my mom is standing there laughing so hard she has tears running down her face. Naturally, I had to know what was so damn funny, right?
She wiped the tears from her face and asked if I really liked the shirt. I nodded profusely, “Yes! I love it, Momma! Thank you. I can’t believe you picked this out, though.”
She laughed again for a minute then said, “Well, you never like anything I pick out, so I just looked around the shop for the ugliest thing I could find. You’re welcome.”
Damn woman. We still have opposing taste in most things, but she’s gotten a lot better at picking out gifts over the years. *laughs* Even if she thinks they’re ugly.

Lost on the Dock

When I shot this photo my main objective was to show off some more of the amazing creations you’ll find at the Vintage Fair and various other events across the grid. Okay, done. Then I though about what to write and I spent over an hour on YouTube looking for the perfect song, but nothing quite resonated with the photo. So, I decided to just ramble. Yep, That’s right…I’m going to ramble on about absolutely nothing. How long will you read these words about me writing about nothing? *laughs* I can’t imagine you’ll last too long, unless you a glutton for meaningless words. My mind is just all over the place this morning and I can’t even settle on a topic. Its Friday and I have so much to do in both world that my my is just spinning with ideas, but none of them will land…so, that’s all. Yep, I’m all out of deep thoughts this morning. Hell, I can barely get a regular thought to sit still and there’s no time for a nap today. I wish you all a fantastic weekend though. ♥

Most Girls

“You know some days you feel so good in your own skin
But it’s okay if you wanna change the body that you came in
‘Cause you look greatest when you feel like a damn queen
We’re all just playing a game in a way, trying to win at life”
Hailee Steinfeld – Most Girls

If you’re a girl, you’ve had to have heard it at least once in your life, “You’re not like most girls.” Of course, I’m not. We’re all different. There are some common factors though and I think that proves true in Second Life more than anywhere else, because in SL most girls want their avatar to be the epitome of beauty as they see it. Oh sure, there are lots of us looking around at other girls in SL thinking, “WTF?” Truth be told, they either love the way they look or they’re simply having fun with their avatar and probably change their avatars regularly. Even if we think an avatar is outdated with bling and/or flexi hair/clothes…a system body/head…perhaps those girls simply don’t like the look of mesh or maybe their computers can’t handle it. Its not for me to say and sure, I’m guilty of giggling with my friends about other avatars, but at the end of the day…who is to say they’re not giggling at us? I’m not trying to make anyone feel guilty for the giggles, so long as those giggles and remarks are kept among friends. I’m not even saying that I won’t do it anymore, because I know I will. What I am saying is that we all have something about our avatars that someone else doesn’t like, but so long as we’re happy with ourselves…our avatars…our representations in a virtual world…THAT is what matters the most, isn’t it? So, if you have a tall thin avatar that resembles an anorexic runway model in the real world, but you love it…good for you and don’t you let anyone change your mind about that. If you have the enormous boobs and butt with the itty bitty waist, but you love it…good. There’s enough body shaming in the real world. Don’t you dare let anyone tell you that your avatar isn’t right, if YOU love it. Now, if you don’t love it…might I suggest you peruse some blogs and create a look you will love? *grins* Oh, just go enjoy the song, do some shopping, and laugh…it is Friday after all…hell, have a drink or five. Live your life and stop worrying about what most girls and doing and be you. ♥

Dreams Are Strange

Dreams are indeed strange things. There have been endless studies done about them and yet, still they remain a mystery. There are so many theories surrounding their meanings, but no one has a factual answer. What bewilders me the most is how some will haunt you for days, weeks, months, or even years, especially the reoccurring ones. I still remember this one nightmare I used to have when I was between the ages of 10-12 yrs old. I remember a series of violent nightmares I had every night for two weeks a few years ago. Its not just nightmares, there are good dreams, too. I remember some of the strangest most fantastic dreams. While others escape me only moments after I wake up.

Then there are those times that you’re having one of those great dreams that you don’t want to end, but you wake up to go pee….you rush back to bed hoping to slip back into that dream to no avail. Yet, the nightmares….you wake up in a panic, overwhelmed with fear. You shake it off. You go back to sleep comforted by the idea of a new dream…or just maybe you won’t remember your dream, at all! But without fail, almost every time you find yourself right back in that same nightmare! Well, that’s what happens to me, at least.

Well, there’s nothing nightmarish about the Dreamer’s Sky set from unKindness at Gacha Garden. This is the stuff of good and fantastical dreams….and a great opportunity for some dreamtastic pictures! Yes, I made up that word, feel free to use it. *grins*
