Your Greedy Eyes Upon Me

I’m just going to let this song do the talking for me today. My favorite line is captioned under the photo and the video awaits you beneath the credits. In the meantime, I get off on you…getting off on me…*grins*….yeah, I’m in a mood.

Wildflower
So much left unspoken
Between the two of us
It’s so much more exciting
To look when you can touch
You could say I am different
And maybe I’m a freak
But I know how to twist ya
To bring you to your knees

Sweet Surrender

It’s a song post, because this is a classic song that I remember from my early childhood. It also kinda fits the mood of the photo. You can read anything you want into this post, but you’re imagination is your responsibility. If you make assumptions, remember that YOU made them.

Bread – Sweet Surrender

Baby I’m through runnin’ it’s true
I’d be a fool to try to escape you
Maybe I’m beat but oh what a sweet surrender
You keep your rights, I’ll take your nights
No one can lose when we turn the lights out
Tastin’ defeat, lovin’ that sweet surrender
I’m givin’ up myself to you but I didn’t really lose at all
I gave the only love I’ve known and it never hurt me to fall
Now that it’s done, so glad you won
I know our lives have only begun now
No more retreat, only my sweet surrender

Look Good, Feel Good

It’s true what they say, “If you look good, you feel good.” I don’t know how many times I’ve been able to turn my day around just by doing my hair, makeup, and putting on a cute outfit. I so rarely leave my house, but when I get fixed up a bit…well, suddenly I want to walk the dog all over the neighborhood. I’m more apt to run errands and sing along to the radio in my car. So, the next time you’re feeling a little blah or just run down, try to muster up the energy to fix yourself up and get out into the real world for a bit. It really is amazing the way it will boost your confidence and your spirit.

E2V-I’m No Expert, but…

So, there’s been a lot of posts on Facebook (and other social media, I’m sure) as well as notices being sent out in SL about the E2V system shutting down. I’m no expert, but let let me try to explain what’s happening. I’ve been watching designers scramble for solutions and suggestions to their customers. It truly breaks my heart. I’ve heard a lot of bitching from others about being forced to use or lose their credits. So, I wanted to take a minute and explain what I know about the situation, regarding both sides.
I’m going to start with the designers. I’m hoping that customers will read this and perhaps have a bit more empathy for the designers and their predicament. The way the system works is that they drop a script into their vendors and they have a server in which they drop the actual product. This system stores the purchase history of each customer, the products, maintains the credits, and re-deliveries. These designers were given a very short notice to come up with an alternative system and change over all of their vendors. Some of these stores have thousands of vendors. Think about each single color, plus fatpacks. They have to manually go through all of those vendors to set up said new system or go back to the old days when you simply bought the contents of the box, there were no credit systems or gifting options. This is going to be a tremendous amount of tedious work, regardless of which direction they go with their vendors. There are options out there, but each designer has to figure out what is best for them. I know that if I were a designer, I’d probably go back to the old way of doing things to prevent myself from ever being in this situation again.
From the customer’s perspective, some of them have been saving their credits so they can eventually afford a fatpack, or they’ve got so much credit they can’t possibly spend it all right away. As one of my friends stated, “I have everything I want from that store and there’s nothing new at the moment.” Fortunately, we all have until the end of May to use those gift cards and credits. Something else to remember, in the real world gift cards expire after one year and sometimes you get a gift card for a store that goes out of business before you ever get a chance to use it. I understand that it’s going to suck if you lose your store credits in this process, but its not the end of the world. I promise. I know that most stores are honestly trying to find an alternative for you all, but some stores are simply too big and their database is too massive to manually reach out to each and every customer while changing their vendors at the same time.
This is a lose lose for everyone. I’m asking that everyone remember that this does not affect just one or two people….one or two stores…this is a grid wide disaster. Please be kind to one another. Be patient, put yourself in the other person’s shoes. To customers, I beg you to please be kind to the designers. Do not yell at them, this is NOT their fault, no more than it is yours. Designers, I know you are all trying so hard and most of you have probably broken down into tears at some point. Try to remember that so many of your customers are simply confused and absolutely unaware of the details of this situation. I ask that everyone please refrain from attacking one another. I trust that designers will go out of their way to assist as many people as they can, but you will need to be patient as these designers have more on their plates at the moment than they’ve had in a very long time. Remember we’re all here to have fun…so please please please be kind to one another and try to understand…no one wanted this, but it is what it is.

Never is a Promise

This post is just a message to all those people out there making promises they can’t keep, promises they have no intentions of keeping, and those with the best of intentions, but have no clue how damaging broken promises can be to fragile souls. Mind your words carefully, for a broken promise makes you less trustworthy and it makes you a liar.

waiting on a promise
You’ll say you understand
But you don’t understand
You’ll say you’d never
Give up seeing eye to eye
But never is a promise
And you can’t afford to lie

This Week is Finally Over

Well, its been quite a week. Between the DDOS attacks and trying to get FaMESHed opened on time. Well, that simply didn’t happen. We had to postpone the opening by one day, because so many designers were affected. However, I promise you all it was worth the weight. Although I went with a black and white image, you can still see how incredible the designs are that are being offered around the grid at the moment, particularly at FaMESHed. There is goodness around every corner and if you can’t find anything to wear, you’re just not trying. *laughs*

Stand By Me

So, recently, my friend Alvie posted a broad question to Facebook asking if other people got transported to a memory instantaneously by a certain song. Of course, I think that must be true for almost everyone, right? Well, some songs bring good memories, some sad, and some traumatic. For me, “Stand By Me” has always been a trigger to a traumatic memory. Its hard to be so turned off by such a popular song, however, I have finally found the cover of it that not only do I love the cover, but I can actually enjoy the song for the first time in 30yrs. I’ve tossed the link at the bottom of the page. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do now. ♥

Furry Knees

How differently would you behave if you knew your every single moved was being observed? I’m talking about every move…every breath…every sneeze…even your trips to the bathroom….your shower…your private time…when you sleep. I just finished watching The Circle with Tom Hanks and Emma Watson. The entire concept of privacy and social media is explored in a really interesting way. It got me thinking…about the smallest of things…like whether or not my feet look dry. Would I tell say that pants are overrated and keep them off as I move freely about my own home? Imagine absolutely no privacy ever. Not that someone IS always watching, but they could be and you’ve no way of knowing unless you’re interacting on social media. Just thinking about this made me push my hair behind my eyes and cross my bare legs under my desk.
Of course, the squirrels distracted me and I quickly forgot that I was acting as if…I think there’s probably a few things I’d do different, I’m sure, but I think we’d probably just get a lot more real with one another. No, I didn’t shave my legs today…yesterday either. I know! *giggles* Of course, I will now, cuz everyone is gonna ask and we all know that Tracy Redangel is the one with the furry knees.

Snake Charmer

I think we all are pretty familiar with the story about the girl and the snake, right? Or at least some version of it. Sometimes she finds him on a sidewalk, sometimes its a little boy, sometimes it an adult. The gist is always the same. Just in case, I’ve provided a commonly found internet version below. The moral of the story is was tickles me, because most of us will still pick up that damn snake believing that somehow overnight we’ve become a snake charmer and we get bit every single time. I was talking to a close friend of mine the other day and we were talking about life lessons we learned as children. My friend learned by watching family members and being smart enough to figure out who was making the right choices and who was making the wrong choices. Then there’s me…I have had to learn most of my lessons the hardest way possible. I feel like I need some kind of implant to remind me, “Don’t touch the snake!”

Girl and The Snake
A young girl walking along a mountain path to her grandmother’s house heard a rustle at her feet. Looking down, she saw a snake, but before she could react, the snake spoke to her. 
“I am about to die,” he said. “It’s too cold for me up here, and I am freezing. There is no food in these mountains, and I am starving. Please put me under your coat and take me with you.”

“No,” the girl replied. “I know your kind. You are a rattlesnake. And if I pick you up, you will bite me and your bite is poisonous.”
“No, no,” the snake said. “If you help me, you will be my best friend. I will treat you differently.”
The young girl sat down on a rock for a moment to rest and think things over. She looked at the beautiful markings on the snake and she had to admit he was the most beautiful snake she had ever seen. Suddenly, she said, “I believe you. I will save you. All living things deserve to be treated with kindness.”
She then reached over, put the snake gently under her coat and continued toward her grandmother’s house. Within a moment, she felt a sharp pain in her side. The snake had bitten her!
“How could you do this to me?” she cried. “You promised that you would not bite me, and I trusted you!”
“You knew what I was when you picked me up,” he hissed as he slithered away.

I Don’t Need Your Love

It seems as if I’ve spent the bulk of my life letting go of people, places, and things. I’ve got the grieving process down so well, I practically do it on auto-pilot. I learned at an early age not to count on anything to last forever. If there’s one person in this world that knows how truly temporary everything is…it’s me. I stumbled across the song and I swear I’m not high, but I felt myself being lifted up like a feather in the wind right before a rain storm. Drifting through the air with all the people, places, and things I’ve let go….until the rain comes down and washes them all away. I can look back and smile, because there are some mighty good memories there….it wasn’t all bad. I’ve got very few regrets.

Stealth – I Don’t Need Your Love

I don’t need your love, and I don’t want to waste your time
I don’t need your love, girl, you don’t need mine
My time is up
There’s no more lines to read
It’s too much
There’s no more room to breathe
I know it’s tough
But there’s no more lies to live
I’ve done enough
Now it’s time to leave

This has run its course
I don’t know you, and you don’t seem to first
Time we both let this fade to dust
I don’t need your love, and I don’t want to waste your time
I don’t need your love, girl, you don’t need mine
I don’t need your love, and I don’t want to waste your time
I don’t need your love, girl, you don’t need mine

I must to admit, I felt it before worse
So this is it, you must’ve foreseen the worst
We have tried our best, you don’t love me, and I my heart’s already left
It’s time we call the latest down to rest
I don’t need your love, and I don’t want to waste your time
I don’t need your love, girl, you don’t need mine
I don’t need your love, and I don’t want to waste your time
I don’t need your love, girl, you don’t need mine

It always hurt when the rain is bringing in to the summer
It’s kinda hard to watch the night’s bringing into the day
It always hurts when we’re moving from one to another
If you’re not moving here in the dark, you will stay
I don’t need your love, and I don’t want to waste your time
I don’t need your love, girl, you don’t need mine
I don’t need your love, and I don’t want to waste your time
I don’t need your love, girl, you don’t need mine

I don’t need your love, and I don’t want to waste your time
I don’t need your love, girl, you don’t need mine
I don’t need your love, and I don’t want to waste your time
I don’t need your love, girl, you don’t need mine
