Hey, Watch!

It just so happened after I shot this picture, some of my lovely friends invited me to come hang out at The Bay (where I sometimes host). Well, I was already dressed for it, so why not, right? Upon landing they were quick to inform me that I looked like BayWatch reloaded…*giggles* I have to admit, that was kinda the look I was going for…I even pumped up the tatas for this shot. I even laughed when I did it, because it was more like, “Hey, Watch!” than BayWatch.  Anyway, we’ve got gorgeous earrings from Triggered paired with a swimsuit from Boosh, both can be found at the current round of Belle. Add in this gorgeous windblown hair from Wasabi that’s over at Bloom and I’m ready for the beach!

Slow Down

As I was driving home from therapy, I got behind a navy and silver SUV. I was thinking how great the colors looked together and why there aren’t more two tones cars. Eventually, I realized that it was a State Trooper. So glad I wasn’t tailgating. HA! So, as we’re traveling along the same road, I come upon my exit, or rather on ramp, and the trooper wants over. I motion for her/him to come on over and s/he does. We circle around the ramp and approach the interstate. Just as we get to the spot where its time for us to merge into the other lanes, this little silver sedan goes flying by at top speed. I thought to myself immediately, “Bad timing, Dude.” The trooper and I both merge rather effortlessly. I hold back from my usual shot forward, because I ain’t trying to catch a ticket. Low and behold, the trooper shot forward. At first, I thought s/he was just bolting forward because s/he can. Then I saw it. The lights started flashing and as I got closer, s/he had indeed chased down the silver sedan and was pulling it over.
In that moment, I couldn’t help but think how much a single minute in our lives can make a difference. If the silver sedan had been one minute behind us, maybe…. If the trooper had been one minute faster…if I had been one minute faster or slower, would I have been the one getting the ticket? Naturally that made me think of how fast things move in Second Life. I don’t move as quickly as most and I suppose that’s why I have remained single all this time. I know what I like. I know what I don’t like. I know myself well enough to know whether or not I’m going to be romantically compatible with people fairly quickly. I think I tend to move a bit quickly with friendships and trust friends more than I should, but I’m not ready to change either of those things about myself. Not just yet, but I think we could all benefit by take a moment to slow down. The internet isn’t going anywhere. Second Life isn’t a race and collecting partners is not the goal. I think its more important to share love and laughter as often as possible…and THAT is what I’m all about.

I wrote my own pain

Wild roses on a bed of leaves
In the month of May
I think I wrote my own pain
Oh don’t you

Down by the creek I couldn’t sleep
So I followed a feeling
Sounds like the vines they are breathing
And I’ve seen the way the seasons change
When I just give it time
But I feel out of my mind
All the time

In the night I am wild-eyed
And you got me now
~Of Monsters and Men – Wild Roses

Perfect Day

They both loved to read and all three of them loved the beach. He rarely had a week day off and wanted to surprise her in a big way. With the help of a good friend and the prediction of nice weather, he was able to arrange an area right on the beach that would set the tone. Netflix and chill was so daily that it wasn’t special anymore, but reading and chillaxing on the beach? Now that would be the perfect day.

My favorite time of year

My favorite time of year is just around the corner. For some it is already showing its beautiful autumn head. Alas, for me, I am still battling 97°F/36°C temperatures and patiently waiting for the official end of Summer. Fall/Autumn is hands down my favorite season of the year. All my favorite things happen. My birthday and Halloween…so basically October! Thanksgiving…the holiday based on some lies, but has become a more positive holiday even as the truth is unveiled. Most of us find it a time to count our blessings and be grateful, so I like it. Plus its the absolute #1 most gluttonous holiday on the planet and anyone that knows me, knows how much I love good food! I know most people think of Christmas as Winter and technically it is, but its usually more like Fall where I live. It rarely drops into true Winter temps until January, for me.
Fall is the one time of year that I actually enjoy being outside…usually. I’m not much for leaving my house, but something about the smell of fireplaces and cool breezes….leaves changing colors and eventually falling. Well, I just love it, okay? It’s no different in Second Life, really. Some of my favorite sims like Scarlett Isle will most likely transition to a more Fall feeling and you will discover that I take a lot more photos outside. I am really looking forward to it this year more than I have in the last few years. So, raise whatever your favorite fall drink is and cheers to Fall…unless you’re drinking one of those pumpkin lattes…*laughs*

Don’t be that guy

The other day, a friend of mine said hello via IMs. No big deal, right? Okay, I should also probably add that he’s not a friend friend, he’s more like a friend of a friend. Seemingly nice guy that I don’t really have an issue with. However, something strange happened after he said hello that day. He offered me a hug which was nice…I accepted, but afterwards, he patted my ass. *sighs*

me: I’m not one of those girls.
him: I know 😉
me: Then why did you do it?
him: I thought I was being cute. I’m sorry.

I forgave him and moved on about my day. Unfortunately, I can’t stop thinking about it. I had a guy hit on me via Facebook recently who had a rather unusual approach. I assumed he was being creepy and asked him to not be that guy. He responded quite defensively and suggested that I was asking for creeps to approach me, because of the sexy photos I post. Now, I know that’s bullshit. I don’t care what kind of pictures I post. No one deserves to be spoken with anything less than respect. Here’s the thing though, people use Second Life as an excuse, but honestly…would these same men approach a Playboy model or porn star by smacking them on the ass or grabbing at them? I’m sure they get an array of bullshit online like we do. However, I need people out there to understand that just because the POTUS grabs women by the pussy and gets away with it, doesn’t mean everyone else will!

Contaminated

“I like the way you say it
Tell me the words you told me that day
Maybe if I could believe it I could just stay
‘Cause I like the way you do it
Yeah I like the way you move it baby show me the way
I like the way you get it on the freeway

And I wish I could change it
And we’re always gonna be contaminated
And oh, I know what we need
You start letting me go
Our love is tainted”

I have waited

“All alone, alone again
No one lends a helping hand
I have waited, I have waited
Takes it’s toll, my foolish pride
How long before I see the light
I have waited, I have waited
For you to lay me down”
