Swamplandia!

“No, I don’t have to tell a soul about this, I promised myself. When you are a kid, you don’t know yet that a secret, like an animal, can evolve. Like an animal, a secret can develop a self-preserving intelligence. Shaglike, mute and thick, a knowledge with a fur: your secret.”
― Karen RussellSwamplandia!

That’s just a really deep quote from one of my favorite books. It stands all on its own and makes beautiful, perfect sense to me. In the book, the context is quite complex. I’ve not met anyone else that’s ever read it though. I chose the quote for personal reasons, but the book it comes from kinda fits the picture…so, yeah, that’s about it. *laughs*

It’s Lit?

Ok, so a sure sign that you are getting older is when you suddenly find yourself confused by new random lingo. Just last year I had to ask Cynthia what the hell “Slay” meant, because it obviously had a new meaning from the one I knew. So, I understand the word, sorta, but I have yet to use it. A couple of years ago, Kess and I had a running joke about the use of the word “dope” because like others this had a new meaning. Dope wasn’t drugs anymore, it meant cool. Kinda like when bad meant good, but really bad was short for badass. So, starting seeing “get lit” and figured that meant…get fucked up, right? But now I’m seeing “It’s Lit” even here in sl on this gorgeous backdrop from Foxcity and I’m looking at it, thinking I don’t even know what that means!!!  So, I turned to my dear friend, Google, for advice. In the words of Bixby, “Okay, here is what I found on the web…”
Urban Dictionary says:  when something fun is happening or something exciting is happening and you and your friends are turnt up
oh shit, tonight it’s lit, there’s gonna be a party with a bunch of girls bro!
—Uhm, ok, so essentially its bad English for more bad English? I mean, turnt up?  Maybe we could squeeze another conjunction in there while we’re at it.
YouTube pops up with Roach Gigz – It’s Lit ft. lamsu
You can listen for yourself and I’m not listing the lyrics. While I’m no authority on music, particularly this genre. I’m seriously worried about this guy and the name he chose for himself. Why do you want to be called a Roach? Not to mention the person featured, kinda sounds like some sort of mixed breed dog. I did listen to most of the song and I’ll admit there are a few parts that I found a bit catchy, but overall, I don’t think I’d ever listen to this song again voluntarily.
Merriam-Webster says: An old slang word made new again.
The slang lit has a long history. Its earliest meaning is “intoxicated,” and that shows up in English as far back as the 1910s.

WHAT!?!?! Ok, so now I’m fascinated and a bit amused, as I bet these youngsters (yeah I said it, picture me gray haired in a rocker, you fuckers) think they’re being all “fresh” and original, too. Alright, that’s it for me…I’m gonna take my old ass to bed…just kidding, I’m gonna go have pixel sex in SL….hmmm….wonder which one is true?? I don’t honestly know, but I know it’s ’bout to get lit in dis bitch! *laughs*

Swan Song

I will start writing again someday, but for now it will probably be mostly songs and lyrics. Stay tuned to discover the diversity of the music though. *laughs*

Lana Del Rey – Swan Song

Put your white tennis shoes on and follow me
Why work so hard when you could just be free?
You got your money now, you got your legacy
Let’s leave the world for the ones who change everything
Nothing could stop the two of us
Let’s just get lost, that’s what we want

And I will never sing again
And you won’t work another day
I will never sing again
With just one wave, it goes away
It will be our swan song
It will be our swan song
Be our swan song
It will be our swan song

Dive in, dive deep and in dark blue my sweet
Brushing up from the water where the ice meets
And you’ve been gone so long, you missed everything
The world can change in a day if you go away
But nothing could stop the two of us
If that’s what we want, we could just get lost

And I will never sing again
And you won’t work another day
I will never sing again
With just one wave, it goes away
It will be our swan song
It will be our swan song
Be our swan song
It will be our swan song

Do you like
Do you like, where you’ve been
Where you’re going to (going to)
Say goodnight
Say goodnight to the life and the world you knew
I’m going to follow you

And I will never sing again
And you won’t work another day
I will never sing again
You won’t work another day
It will be our swan song
It will be our swan song
Be our swan song
It will be our swan song

Put your white tennis shoes on and follow me
Put your white tennis shoes on and follow me
Put your white tennis shoes on and follow me
Why you work so hard when you could just be free?

In Between

Kelsea Ballerini – In Between

In between just a flame and a ring
In between an apartment and a frontporch swing
In between cheap and fancy a guitar and a Grammy
In between reckless and responsibility
Sometimes I’m my mother’s daughter, sometimes I’m her friend
Sometimes I play grown up and sometimes I play pretend
Sometimes I’m a princess dressed all ribbons and all curls
And sometimes I just wanna scream “I’m not a little girl!“
Dumb enough to think I know it all
Smart enough to know I don’t
Young enough to think I’ll live forever
Old enough to know I won’t
In between
In between beer and basement
And Napa Valley vacation
In between hometown and a neon city
In between underestimated and overexpectated
Who I was and who I’m gonna be
Sometimes I’m my mother’s daughter, sometimes I’m her friend
Sometimes I play grown up and sometimes I play pretend
Sometimes I’m a princess dressed all ribbons and all curls
And sometimes I just wanna scream, “I’m not a little girl“
Dumb enough to think I know it all
Smart enough to know I don’t
Young enough to think I’ll live forever
Old enough to know I won’t
I know I won’t
I’m half head up in the clouds, half feet down on the ground
‘Cause it ain’t that simple
As an adult sittin’ on that page when they say, “Act your age“
But you’re stuck there in the middle
Sometimes I’m my mother’s daughter, sometimes I’m her friend
Sometimes I play grown up and sometimes I play pretend
Sometimes I’m a princess dressed all ribbons and all curls
And sometimes I just wanna scream “I’m not a little girl!“
Dumb enough to think I know it all
Smart enough to know I don’t
Young enough to think I’ll live forever
Old enough to know I won’t
In the in between
Yeah
In the in between
hey sweetpea it’s mama
Just wanna let you know that I love you
Thinkin’ about you, missin’ you while I’m on the road
Can’t wait to see you when I get back

Build or Destroy

As we approach a new year, we have a tendency to make changes or at least attempt to make changes. We want to end some habits and start others. I’ve read that it takes anywhere between 21-66 days to develop a habit or break one. So, let’s say you just want to drink an extra glass of water every morning. That’s an easy one that will probably take about 3 weeks. You want to go to the gym 3 times a week, well, that might take a couple of months. The same is true for breaking habits.  So, as we approach a new year, its a great time for us to decide whether we’re going to build or destroy ourselves as well as each other.

Dear Santa

Dear Santa,

I’ve been a very good girl this year. I’ve conserved water by showering with others. By not wearing panties and bras, I used less water, electricity, and detergent doing laundry. I conserved electricity on cold nights by snuggling up close to someone. Our bodies kept each other warm instead of using the heat. As I am so very concerned about your health, I’ve not laid out any milk and cookies for you this year. Instead, I’ll be waiting in the red chair with something organic and naturally sweet just for you. I think you can probably guess what I want for Christmas this year. I’ll see YOU on Christmas Eve.

tenderly yours,
♥SadyClaws♥

Crazy Cat Lady

One of the many aspects of Second Life that I adore is that you can be an animal hoarder and not be judged. You can have as many cats, dogs, cows, horses, pigs, hamsters, birds, whatever as you want and your house doesn’t stink. They don’t make a mess and no one reports you to the authorities for running a puppy mill! See? It’s perfectly fine for me to be a crazy cat lady in SL and still be hot as hell!

Between the Lines

When doing this picture, I had this song in my head the whole time, so here we go again…I give you a link to the video and the lyrics are below. I hope you enjoy it. ♥

Stone Temple Pilots – Between the Lines

Lovely disguise, read between the lines
You rock the magic plane with no abbreviation
Three, four you sell what you bought
And there ain’t no magic pen to get back what you lost

I like it when we talk about love

I like it when we talk about love
You always were my favorite drug
Even when we used to take drugs

Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take

Penguins don’t fly
Crocodile Sunday smile
Really like to fish but don’t like superficial people
Shoe store heard it all before
From pearly whites to pearly gates
What do we have to argue ’bout

I like it when we talk about love
I like it when we talk about love
You always were my favorite drug
Even when we used to take drugs

Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take

Leave me all alone before
(Get out the way)
Never did what she was told
(Get out the way)
Seems to play at time of war
(Get out the way)
Less is big and listens more?

Lovely disguise, read between the lines
You rock the magic plane with no abbreviation
Three, four you sell what you bought
And there ain’t no magic pen to get back what you lost

I like it when we talk about love

I like it when we talk about love
You always were my favorite drug
Even when we used to take drugs

Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take

Halp!

Like most bloggers, I’m a multitasker. Often times while I’m in blog mode, I’m watching a movie or a show. This particular night I was up far later than usual and had stumbled across a great copy of 40 Meters Below. Now, I’m not a huge advocate for watching illegal copies of movies, but let’s face it..most of us have at one point or another. So, I’m guilty and I admit it. However, I can honestly say that this movie was amazing and incredibly intense. Especially while working on a photo of my avatar under water and wrestling to get the pose set just right with these tentacles. I’m not sure which one was more intense because of the other, but either way…just wow! Either way it was a fun and exciting night!

Just Be

Yesterday was a bad day. Nothing in particular happened, it was just one of those days where I felt like I had no people skills. My mind was cloudy. I hard a really hard time just thinking about anything that wasn’t laid out in front of me in black and white. I wanted to stay in bed more than anything. To hide under the covers from the world. I did not care about the eclipse, but felt like I should. I just didn’t.
I’m quite fortunate that Josh understands me better than most and understood that I just needed to be. Simply be. We watched some Netflix together, a comedy and we laughed. We didn’t talk much, but we shared time together and he let me be myself.  A few of my friends understood, Rebel even suggested it might be hormones at that’s certainly a possibility. She sent me the link to one of my favorite bad mood songs and that made me grin. I think only three people were aware of how I was feeling and all three were very compassionate.
It wasn’t one of those situations that could be fixed and they knew that. They knew I simply needed to just be. I suppose that might not make sense to some, but for I do believe we all have days like that. We just wake up on the wrong side of the proverbial bed and want more than anything to lash out or be left alone. I knew if I was forced to interact with too many people yesterday I would end up saying or doing something I’d later regret. I went to bed quite early, which led me to wake up too soon. I lied there in my bed thinking how I could make sure today would be different and I just decided that it will be. I cannot suffer another day like yesterday. It felt ridiculous to be so seemingly angry for no apparent reason. Today, I will have a good day if it kills me. *thinks for a minute and grins* Or perhaps kills someone else. *smirks*
