DollHouse

While putting this scene together, there was a song going through my head and every time I look at this picture I still hear it. So, here ya go, I’m sharing my ear worm with you all. I’ll even give you the lyrics! *giggles & sings*

Melanie Martinez – Dollhouse

Hey girl, open the walls, play with your dolls
We’ll be a perfect family
When you walk away, it’s when we really play
You don’t hear me when I say,
Mom, please wake up
Dad’s with a slut, and your son is smoking cannabis
No one never listens, this wallpaper glistens
Don’t let them see what goes down in the kitchen
Places, places, get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won’t you be a good sister?
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees
(D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees)
Hey girl, look at my mom, she’s got it going on
Ha, you’re blinded by her jewelry
When you turn your back she pulls out a flask
And forgets his infidelity
Uh-oh, she’s coming to the attic, plastic
Go back to being plastic
No one never listens, this wallpaper glistens
One day they’ll see what goes down in the kitchen
Places, places, get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won’t you be a good sister?
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees
(D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees)
Hey girl (hey girl, hey girl, hey girl, hey girl)
Hey girl, open your walls, play with your dolls
We’ll be a perfect family
Places, places, get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won’t you be a good sister?
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees
(D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees)

Music is Timeless

I love music. I’ve yet to understand anyone that doesn’t, like my mother. *rolls her eyes* I’m not super knowledgeable about music, I’ll admit. I rarely know the artist’s name, song name, or lyrics. Thank goodness for Google! However, I think that is music itself were to dedicate a song to me, it would be this one. Music is always there for us, Time After Time. I chose one of my favorite covers of the song. So, have a listen and I’ve chosen not to provide the lyrics, because I’m pretty sure most of us already know these. ♥

Music is Timeless
If you’re lost you can look–and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you–I’ll be waiting 
Time after time

Sady, the Lil Devil

According to Facebook many, and I do mean many, little bad influence quizzes came back with MY name on them! So, in the spirit of living up to my name, I present Sady the Lil Devil! Mind you, my friend Tracy got every single outfit in the machine trying to get this outfit and I got it after only 3 tries. So, which one of us is really the devil? I’ll let you decide!

Walk of Shame

She had stayed out all night with only a clutch. She finally understood why women carried such big purses and all the stuff she could have fit in one to avoid this walk of shame. It was pretty obvious she’s been out all night. Her updo was unraveling and the sunglasses hardly hid the fact that she was far too overdressed for any activity at this hour of the morning. She convinced herself that if she got coffee and a pastry she could mimic Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Except there was no Tiffany’s, there was only four more blocks from the coffee shop to her house.

Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary

Mary Mary

When I was in the first grade, I wanted my name to be Mary so I changed it…without telling anyone. If I did tell them, they dismissed it as childish banter and went on about their day forgetting all about it. I had all my friends calling me Mary at school and at home, but adults didn’t seem to notice, because in my warped little mind I still answered to my birth name. Anyway, where was I….oh yeah, so six year old me changed her name to Mary, even wrote my name on my homework that way. No one said anything, so I kept on doing it thinking the deed was done. I was happy. My new name was Mary and when I grew up I would move to New York City and throw my hat into the air. (Some of you will get that.)
One day, my parents were called in for teacher-parent meeting. The teacher insisted I had not turned in any of my assignments for over two weeks. My parents defended me. They knew I had done my homework, because they watched me sit at the foot of their bed while we all watched TV every night. So, they call me in the room and ask me where my work was. Naturally, I told them I turned it in. The teacher was so confused. She pulled out a stack of papers and asked me to find my work. I went right to my page and pulled it out. As I handed it to the teacher, my parents smiled quite smugly if I remember correctly. Afterall, their child was brilliant and they were right. The teacher looked at the paper, pulled our her role book, scanned the list of names saw that the last names matched but not the first. When she showed it to my parents, they were confused. So, I had to explain to the stupid adults that I had changed my name. Imagine my surprise when they told me I couldn’t just change my name any ole time I wanted. Hmmpf.

Obstacles

obstacles

I’ve heard many times that the state of one’s bedroom is a direct reflection of their state of mind. *looks around in RL* Well, I’m screwed! My room is not so big, but I’ve managed to squeeze quite a lot of furniture and stuff in here. Its like an obstacle course. Well, that proves kinda true, doesn’t it? My mind is definitely an obstacle course. Its not my fault! There are squirrels EVERYWHERE!!! Not to mention shinies and I must have them all!!!
Screw the decor, that crystal skull looks perfectly normal next to the porcelain grasshopper! Yes, my TrueBlood DVD set does look awesome next to my Kim Addonizio books! Yes, I have cleaning products tucked into the wicker basket on the bottom shelf, ignore the dust, please.
Whether they’re obstacles in our rooms, on the road, or in our heads, we all encounter them sooner or later. Sometimes the way we maneuver them can alter our course so much that it changes our destination. The point remains, we will all face obstacles in our life, but by giving up we become our biggest obstacles yet.

A lot of people give up just before they’re about to make it. You know you never know when that next obstacle is going to be the last one. Chuck Norris

Yes I did quote Chuck Norris. *laughs*

Random Run

She was out for a run like any other day. She stopped at the corner market for her bottle of water and a rest when the adorable little puppy wandered up, tongue and tail wagging. She poured some of her water on the ground for the pup and he lapped up before passing out at her feet. He had no tags and he was too cute to leave abandoned in a parking lot. She sighed and rolled her eyes at herself, I don’t have time for a puppy. She carried the pup into the store and asked the clerk if she knew anything about it. The clerk mentioned that the pup had been hanging around for a few days but no one had claimed it or came looking for it. Sady sighed again, left her number with the clerk just in case anyone came looking for the sweet puppy and took it home.
That was six years ago, the Random and Sady have been inseparable ever since.

Rescued

They say that dogs are a man’s best friend, and of course the term man is used quite loosely…as in mankind, humans. It was certainly true for her. No person could make her smile the way her sweet Puppers did. She could be completely herself. Her dog loved her at her worst and at her best. Whether sad or happy, Puppers loved her no matter what. There was no where else she felt so free than she did at home with her dog.

She had always laughed at the cliche’ that people would say after adopting a rescue dog, but it was true. She might have rescued a dog from the shelter, but in the end…Puppers rescued her from loneliness, from dark thoughts, from sorrow, from her inner demons…from herself.

Grace & Sady Road Trip

“We should totally go on a road trip, Grace!”
“Yea, alright, but you’re driving, Sady, I’ve gotta bottle to finish,” Grace laughed as she turned up her bottle of vodka.
“No, problem, I love to drive. Besides, I can totally drive stoned, but you navigate!”
“Deal,” she says.

She failed to mention that she forgot her car charger for her phone or that she didn’t grab a map….way to go, GRACE!

a little help

So, we push and push our over packed car for like 1000 miles (okay, more like 1-2), but this drunk bitch in her sneakers is hardly helping at all…meanwhile, I’m trying to be careful not to destroy my new heels! “A little help would be nice, Grace!”
“What? I’m pushing with my butt, its the biggest muscle I have!”
“Fair point.”

really Grace

Funny thing was, as we pushed our ride into the gas station, you’d think that biker would offer to help, but he couldn’t stop staring long enough to pick his tongue off the ground. Must be our gorgeous new outfits from C88…*shrugs*
“Well, Grace….where do we go from here?”
“Sady, we need a hotel with a pool, I’m tired!”

pit stop

Stay tuned for the next chapter of the Grace & Sady Road Trip….it was so much fun collaborating on this project that we’ve agreed to do it again. We each did our own shots and versions of the trip now we just gotta wait for her to sober up…*grins*…for her side of the story, check out Grace’s blog.

On or Off the Grid?

When I put this scene out for the Make Believe post, I was fantasizing about how nice it might actually be to live off the grid, away from the world, technology, and people. I thought about where would be the ideal place in the world to live such a way as not to get too cold, too hot, too wet, too dry….and then I remembered I’m geographically challenged.
While writing this, I’m dealing with some sort of stomach bug. While rushing to the bathroom and unsure which end something is going to spew from, I’m finding great comfort in knowing the bathroom is less than six feet from my bed. Feeling like four day old road kill, I find that the comfort of my memory foam mattress and pillows combined with 800 thread count sheets and pillowy soft duvet are modern conveniences I’m not ready to give up just yet. I think I’ll leave living off the grid to The Land of Make Believe.
