Have Some Water

There are a lot of phrases and terms that seem to come with each new generation. I’m hold enough to remember when “Ooooh BURNNNN” was a big deal and I admit, I said it a lot. Another one I remember was “NOT!” I’m quite sure I’m guilty of overusing that one as well. I’m sure there were many more that I wasn’t even aware of and plenty that struck a nerve. One word that kills me these days is “bae”…you’re not saving syllabils by leaving out the 2nd b, so why? Although, I will admit that when I’m drunk, babe sounds a lot like bae…so maybe they’re just mentally challenged? Nah, they think it’s cute. I get it. I don’t like it, but I get it. My favorite current term is “thirsty,” and never have I seen a word more perfectly applicable in SL. Now, I’m not talking about the way women dress, because come on…it is SL and only here can we walk out of our homes looking and feeling unbelievably sexy AND well dressed, all while showing our undies and barely covering our bits? I’m talking about the way some girls behave. The way they carry themselves and interact with people.
I was talking to someone the other day about how we’ve played SL side by side our RL spouses and seen the way girls will IM them, even with us standing right next to them in SL. Despite the fact that profiles say that he’s taken, that he’s with his true love in RL as well as SL…these thirsty bitches will still IM a man and practically perform oral sex without knowing if he’s even remotely interested. Aside from the complete disregard for other women, which come on…how low must you be to go there? Surely you don’t expect to obtain a loyal lover by luring him away from someone else. Let’s just talk for a minute about how these women will just throw themselves at a man…offering up every little tidbit of themselves all for the sake of…what? Attention? I don’t get it. I’m just not one that wants to go after what isn’t available. Sure, I get it that sometimes friendships lead to things of a less than desirable situation, but that’s not what I’m talking about here. I get it…stuff happens. No one is perfect. However, to knowingly go after a man you know full well is taken on every level? To profess your love to someone who hasn’t offered you anything more than a friendly hello? Girls, please, stop selling yourself so short. If we’d all just act how we want each other to act, just maybe we could all stop looking over our shoulders. A man worth having isn’t going to be swayed by that sort of thing anyway, so what are you really proving to yourself by trying to steal another’s man or even running behind your friends picking up their scraps. Have some water, girl, stop being so damn thirsty. Its really quite sad and you aren’t doing yourself any favors by acting in such a manner. Be kind to one another. Be supportive and encouraging. Be the person you wish others would be…and keep in mind that karma is a real bitch and she fights real dirty. Is that the kind of thing you want coming back to you someday? Trust me, its not. Go forth, be happy, be kind…and above all else? Happy shopping!♥

Tea Party? Nah! Let’s drink wine!

“Welcome to the Tea Party
Want to be my VIP?
You didn’t RSVP
That’s ok, that’s ok
Welcome to the Tea Party (oh oh, oh oh)
Want to be my VIP?”
~Kerli “Tea Party

Ok, so when I first saw the Garden Soiree Set by unKindness at Collabor88, I immediately had the above mentioned song in my head. I knew I had to have a little gathering of my roommates for a photo. Anyone that knows my crew, knows that we’re not exactly tea drinkers…so it had to be a wine party, right? Well, imagine getting five very creative and strong personalities together, suggesting a theme and giving them some freedom to express themselves…yeah, madness ensued.

tea eh wine partyI am very fortunate that they let me believe I had any sense of control while shooting these photos or that I had any influence at all over their outfits. I said, “Go for it…be bizarre…be creative.” I should have known that Rom would show up in his favorite boots. Tracy, of course, shows up in as little as possible. Afterall, “Tracy’s flickr” is our favorite answer to all Cards Against Humanity questions (try it, it works). When I told them to hop on the pose stands I had filled with poses from Del May, Grace immediately asked if she could be passed out on the table. It only seemed natural that she would be, so I had to say yes. I knew the minute I saw the dress from sYs that I’d be wearing it for the party and when Sino saw it, he quickly put together his own stunning look.
tea party
Being surrounded by friends this way was amazing and I’m not sure I can even begin to explain the conversations we had while I shot these photos, but I can’t recommend the experience enough. I know we all gather at clubs and dance to our favorite DJs. That is so much fun in its own right, but please if you’ve never done it…have a party at home with your closest friends. Ask them to dress in theme and break out the cameras, because THIS?
Yeah, in almost 10 years on the grid, these types of little parties have always been my favorite. We might not have been genuinely drunk in real life, but we sure were high on life and I’m so grateful that I was able to catch this madness on virtual film. Even when things went a bit haywire with my poses stands, the fun continued.
tea party madness
The Garden Soiree Set inspires the oncoming of fall and it just so happens that its mine and Tracy’s favorite season…no, that has nothing to do with the fact that both our birthdays are in October…pssshaw! Its the time of pumpkins, caramel apples, cinnamon candles, hot cocoa…ok, lots of apple things…Halloween…falling leaves…all sorts of good stuffs! So, we got a little excited…and its really a very lovely set, despite the madness represented here.
