Kinky Christmas

So, I was feeling bit mischievous when putting together this scene. We have a tendency to think about children and families at the holidays, but what about the couples that haven’t gotten around to children or don’t want any? What about the couple that wants to get down and dirty knowing that no one is going to interrupt? Well, for them, I’ve got the perfect little kinky Christmas idea! *grins* You see, we’ve got an industrial bench and table, which is perfect for restraints. We’ve got Kama Sutra statues to inspire the couple with various positions. And plenty of toys for both to play with…now I just wonder what could be in that box???

Learning New Things

I recently wrote a post about a thread I had seen on Facebook about Flickr favs titled, “What are you complaining about?” I didn’t remember who had originally posted it when I wrote about it. It turns out that the person that posted it is someone I admire and adore. She got in my box to explain why she had posed the question and then went on to explain why it bothered her. She said that people are using bots to increase favs and traffic on Flickr. That was something I didn’t know. I had heard that people could hire someone to add favs, but I found that to be ridiculous. Turns out my friend said that she prefers to feel as though she deserves those favs and not to have earned them from some bot that can’t even look at the photo. I have to agree with her there. I had no idea people were using alts. This really bothered me, because I feared that people might think I was using a bot since I have some pretty standard compliments with cute emojis. I have to admit I was quite relieved when she explained that no one would think that of me, as I don’t paste those comments on every photo I fav nor do I fav every photo I see. *whew*

I love that she approached me to explain, because I learned something new. I am always open to understanding the other side of things. In fact, I prefer to know why people do the things they do. So a special thank you to her for enlightening me and not being upset about my post. ♥

We Watch The Day Go By

Just a song that’s been on my mind…

Birdy – Wings

Sunlight comes creeping in
Illuminates our skin
We watch the day go by
Stories of all we did
It made me think of you
It made me think of you
Under a trillion stars
We danced on top of cars
Took pictures of the stage
So far from where we are
They made me think of you
They made me think of you
Oh, lights go down
In the moment we’re lost and found
And I just wanna be by your side
If these wings could fly
For the rest of our lives
I’m in a foreign state
My thoughts, they slip away
My words are leaving me
They caught an aeroplane
Because I thought of you
Just from the thought of you
Oh, lights go down
In the moment we’re lost and found
And I just wanna be by your side
If these wings could fly
Oh, damn these walls
In the moment we’re ten feet tall
And how you told me after it all
We’d remember tonight
For the rest of our lives
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah
If these wings could fly
Oh, lights go down
In the moment we’re lost and found
And I just wanna be by your side
If these wings could fly
Oh, damn these walls
In the moment we’re ten feet tall
And how you told me after it all
We’d remember tonight
For the rest of our lives

Don’t Do It! Just Don’t!

I’ve written before about how much I love bikinis in Second Life and one of the reasons is because you wouldn’t catch me dead in one in Real Life! *laughs* I’ll hardly put on a swimsuit at all these days. The last time I went swimming in RL I was stoned and in a friend’s backyard. Why? Because I’m ashamed of my body. I hate it. I am overweight and I have a lot of scars. All it took was one summer at the pool for me to overhear some women laughing and going on about how my fat, pale ass shouldn’t be allowed at the pool. I stayed in the water just kinda hiding in a corner of the pool until they left. I suffered a horrible sunburn, but I didn’t want to hear their ugly remarks again when I got out and I wasn’t going to let them see me cry.
I realize I shouldn’t let people have such power over me, but let it happen to you and let’s see how well you handle it. Good for you if you can handle it better than I did. I envy those that are not bothered by such things. So, in SL I choose to look how I wish I did in RL. Yes, I’d love to be fit…a little thick, I don’t want to be model thin and I’ve got more than enough fat to deal with in RL. Sadly, the fact that we can look however we want in SL, yet still people want to shame each other for how they CHOOSE to look. No one in SL just happens to look that way. No one’s avi is suffering from an eating disorder. The way our avatars look is purely our choice.
I admit that I’ve seen some avatars and just shook my head. I don’t get it. I don’t understand why people choose to look a certain way and yes, perhaps a few comments in IMs with friends, but certainly never anything out loud and to their face. I think that is incomprehensible. Its bullying at its finest. Body shaming in either world is terrible. Its one thing to laugh among your friends at the girl whose butt looks like it at Tokyo or the guy whose eyes are so far apart he looks like an alien, but its entirely different to go up to them and accuse them of mental illness, being sick, or any other degrading remark that makes you feel that your choices are better than theirs. Its actually wrong for us to even make little remarks in IMs, but we are human and its going to happen. You can do it tactfully with your friends quietly or you can keep your mouth shut entirely, but to call someone out for the choices they make about their avatar’s appearance is flat out wrong. Its no different from any other type of hate speech. Its bullying. Period. I cannot stress that enough.
We come here to live a life we can’t live in the real world, at least most of us do. Luckily there are incredible designers to assist us in looking our best, as well. Unlike the real world, where often times the plus size department looks more like someone threw out Grandma’s curtain collection. So, when you find yourself thinking, “WTF?” as you see an avatar that bewilders you, please for the love of humanity, do not approach that person with hatred. If you’ve got nothing nice to say to them, say nothing. Do NOT bully or body shame one another in a virtual world. Don’t Do It! Just Don’t! Think how you’d feel if someone said such things to you or someone you love. Please be kind to one another. There is far too much hate in this world already.
