Invisible

I was expecting some silly questions when I did the post, “Dangerous Proposition.” I figured a few of my close friends would ask me something insane. I did not expect Josh to ask, “The squirrels that distract you – are they red or grey – or even both?” *laughs*
Well, the squirrels actually represent my trains of thought. They run in all directions, then freeze for no reason. Just imagine a park full of squirrels running in every direction. That’s kinda how my mind works. So, Josh, the answer is…they’re invisible.

The World Is Mine

The words “The world is mine” are written on my arm as part of the tattoo. So, between that and the look of the photo, I couldn’t help but share the song this makes me think of and naturally, I’ll give you the lyrics, too. *smiles*

David Guetta – The World is Mine

I believe in the wonder,
I believe this new life took in,
Like a God that I’m under,
There’s drugs running through my veins,
I believe in the wonder,
I believe I can touch the flame,
There’s a spell that I’m under,
Got to fly, I don’t feel no shame,
The world is mine,
The world is mine,
The world is mine,
The world is mine,
Take a look what you’ve started,
In the world flashing from your eyes,
And you know that you’ve got it,
From the thunder you feel inside,
I believe in a feeling,
Of the pain that you left to die,
I believe in the livin’
In life that you give to try,
The world is mine,
The world is mine,
The world is mine,
The world is mine,
Mine,
Mine,
The world is mine,
I’ve lost my fear to what appears,
I do my best,
The world is mine,
You take the price and realize,
That’s in your eyes,
The world is mine,
I’ve lost my fear to what appears,
I do my best,
The world is mine,
You take the price and realize,
That’s in your eyes,
The world is mine,
The world is mine,
The world is mine

Waiting for Him

The text message read: OMW…be ready to play…wait in the tub
She squealed with delight and wasted no time getting undressed. She grabbed two goblets of his favorite wine, lit the candles and the fireplace. Then settled into the tub of hot water. She played in the water, careful to keep her hair dry, she couldn’t wait for Him to get home!

What Dreams May Come

Saturday night to the shock of many of my friends, I went to see the movie IT! Before we go further, let me explain in the quickest way possible. I hate clowns and its not just some phobia that I don’t understand. I was attacked by a man in a clown suit, oddly enough, 27yrs ago this month. It was right before my 21st birthday and no, I had not seen the movie. I didn’t think of the math until I came home from the movies Saturday night and realized, “OMG! How weird is that? The whole 27yr thing!” I had seen the 1st one on VHS in 1997 after the attack at the insistence of my so called friends. There were tons of drugs involved and I don’t remember anything about it. Anyway, so you can imagine why I hate clowns.
So, yeah, saw the movie and it was quite frightening, which says a lot because I can’t remember the last time a horror movie actually scared me. I was quite shaken afterwards and really thought, “That was a mistake!” I had nightmares all night Saturday night, waking myself up by screaming, “NO! NO! NOOOO!” at least four times. The last one I remember, I woke myself up screaming, “STOP IT! JUST STOP IT!” I woke up feeling exhausted and shaken to the core. I haven’t had that many clown dreams in one night for many many years. As the day progressed, I realized that none of my nightmares had been about my attack. Instead, all the nightmares were about Pennywise and by the time I got to that fifth one, he had become more of an annoyance than an actual monster. Now, I can honestly say that I’m glad I saw it and I feel like I have possibly beaten my severe fear of clowns. I doubt I’ll ever like them, but they certainly won’t be dictating my life anymore.
I realize the title and picture don’t quite go with the theme of the movie IT, but its really about more than that. Its about dreams in general and how they truly can reveal so much about our lives. I also feel like I’ve emerged from a very dark place with my history of coulrophobia. I’m certainly looking forward to brighter things AND dreams ahead.

Welcome To My Darkness

“Welcome to my darkness, I been here a while
Clouding up the sunlight, hurting for a smile
Or something, but something always turns into nothing….

….Acting like I’m heartless, I do it all the time
That don’t mean I’m scarless, that don’t mean I’m fine
But you’ll see, when someone else makes you this way”
Bishop Briggs – Dark Side

Its no secret that I have a dark side, I make jokes about my dark side being the side of me that likes pink, girly things like unicorns and cupcakes. I’m actually not a huge fan of those things, but its hard to hate things that bring so much joy to others. The truth is that my dark side is probably my truest side. Few people in my life have seen the darkest parts of my soul and I doubt anyone else ever will. I work really hard to keep it in check, because it can frighten people. It makes life harder than it already is.
Even the mild hints at my dark side tend to frighten people. My fascination with black clothes had my mother convinced I was a devil worshiper when I was only 19 and at one point I had black hair with blonde roots, as I am naturally blond. I was obsessed with Robert Smith of The Cure and did my make up a lot like his. Goth wasn’t a thing then, not like now. At my last job, all my co-workers had scriptures and crosses…family photos decorating their cubicles. I had skulls and dragons. When I told them I’m not a Christian, they assumed I was a devil worshiper, too. I had to explain that atheists don’t believe in the devil either. *laughs*
As, I’ve grown older, I have found more of a balance between the dark and the light. It’s helped me quite a bit and opened my world in ways I never imagined possible, but I will always embrace the dark as much if not more than the light. Its just who I am. Just like I will probably always go to sleep with the TV on…the only shows being those about crime, naturally….preferably serial killers. *grins*
I’ve recently made some changes to the way I’m blogging. I’ve been writing short stories or scenarios to go along with the photo. This is just a way to bring that balance into my creativity. I love writing, but I will admit that I’ve enjoyed writing the scenes much more than opening myself up and sharing such intimate parts of myself. I can’t promise that I will always write a story or scenario for each post, but I do think I’ll be doing it a lot more in the future. I hope that you, my readers, enjoy them as much as I do. If not, there’s always the option to just scroll on down to the details. ♥

Get Out There

Yesterday, I wrote about how gowns have changed over the yeas and I have to say there are so many beautiful gowns on the grid these days, I find myself feeling a bit like a princess and looking for excuses to go dancing at formal events. Luckily, there are no shortage of formal places. My favorite venues these days, believe it or not, have become those that sponsor live music. For instance, the amazing AleyKat (not to be confused with anyone else with a similar name) sings at a lovely formal venue most Fridays.  If you’ve never heard her, I urge you to look her up and catch one of her shows. She is simply amazing and depending on the venue her songs can be romantic and sweet…or fun and funky. Her funky, casual shows are always a blast and her more romantic shows are pure magic. Either way, I cannot recommend her enough. In fact, she’ll be singing at Templemore, Friday, May 12 at 5pm slt. Not only is this going to be an incredible show, this venue is hands down gorgeous! Dress up or dress down, but be prepared for an amazing show either way, as they have quite a line up. So, I recommend you get out there and enjoy some of the fine, amazing talent on the grid.

Opening My Treasure Chest

Alright, so I just got my Treasure Chest, the theme for March is The Royal Treatment, featuring exclusive designs from twelve designers. I don’t do video blogging so I’m just going to write as I open. Maybe one day I’ll tackle the whole vlogging concept, but I really really hate my voice…soooo, its not likely. You just gotta read..*nods*…so here we go…

Wow, so I was wrong in my previous post about the eyes being from Oxide, they’re from Adoness. This is an extensive set of eyes, all the system eyes are included as well as some sculpt prims for regular and full bright eyes, along with a HUD that offers 20 color choices and you can even color each eye differently. This is a huge plus for a lot of people and an option that I adore. I don’t use it much, but I do like having the option.
Oh how I love thee, Cubic Cherry. I’ll be using the “crowns” along with the orbs from last month. These are fantastic! While called a crown, as it does have a band around the head, I’m going to refer to these are horns, because that’s what really pops…these are luscious!
Faida has provided us with a lovely wine colored role play gown. While not my normal style by a long shot, I have to say they’ve managed to pull off a suede texture on this dress that’s very very well done.
We’ve got some rather large, ornate earrings from austris, along with a notecard that simply says, “We apologize, this is the smallest size of earrings, and  it works correctly only in statistic poses, not with ao. :(” This made me tilt my head a bit, but I had to put them on to see…Honestly? They work fine with my AO. Yes, they dip into my shoulders at times, because I have a squirmy AO and the earrings are large, but its not that noticeable. These are really pretty. They come with a HUD that allows you three metal options for three parts of the earrings. I like these…while yes, most likely they’ll be used in photos more than anywhere else…they’re very nice.
Abstract Soul has given us the scepter that no proper royal would be without. There are two versions included…animated and non-animated. The animated simply poses you arm so that you can hold the scepter up. While I do wish it had come with some color options, I have to say…this is cute. I’m already thinking of ways to use this.
Straight away, I love the packaging for Fallen Gods…I might even use that in a picture..*laughs*..I realize that’s not supposed to matter, but this is cute! Okay, but inside is Omega appliers for heads and bodies, there’s even a slink nails applier. The skin/tattoo layers are called Gold Royale and its going to give you avatar the midas touch. Okay, that was my first thought anyway.
While Oxide did not deliver eyes, they did deliver a magnificent Mer Crown…YES! I called the mermaid thing! This is super cute and will go quite nicely with a mermaid tail! This is really pretty. Comes with a HUD that allows you some rather extensive pastel color options and with this crown I shall rule the oceans!
The Half Moon Market brings us a very odd looking helmet thing with knives protruding from it. There are two versions…Best Served Cold (clean) and Vengeance Taken (bloody) along with Princely Pie which is what I’m going to assume is a cake or pie made from the prince? There’s blood, so I that’s why I assume that…it could be berries. *laughs* I do so love bloody things in my inventory!
Oh my goodness!! Unrepentant brought the frog!!! Two versions..one to hold, one to rez and this little frog prince is freaking adorable!! I love him sooo much!!!
Ok, moving right along…Stitched delivers the Chayle Cape complete with HUD. While this is not fitted or sized for mesh bodies…as I stand here wearing absolutely nothing but the XXS-NX sized cape, I think this might just go well over other clothing. I will point out two things, there’s a HUD that allows you to color this cape to just about any color you want and there are some unrigged buttons included. The buttons are not working out for me as they float around and do not line up with the cape which is rigged.
Ersch has gone above and beyond with a gorgeous cage. So many options! There’s two you can hold, one with  a pose, one without.  There’s two to rez, one for decor for sitting with three sitting poses and one much bigger one for decor. There are two HUDs and this is going to be fun to play with. I can use this in photos and decor! I love this!
Last but not least, Rowanwood really shines with the Sovereign Born Royal Chaise and Oil Lamp. This is a lovely piece of furniture and will go very nicely with any royal decor.

For today, I present two items from the Treasure Chest…the frog and the earrings…along with a gorgeous gown to present you with my version of Mary Sibley of Salem. (Awesome freaking show if you’ve never watched it…first two seasons are on Netflix.) You can call me Sady Sibley…*nods*

Life is Messy Enough

Life is Messy Enough

Our real lives offer enough challenges. The fact that we can escape some of those challenges for even a few minutes or hours in SL, gives us an advantage that a lot of people don’t get to experience.  In Second Life, we can escape our health problems and physical limitations. We can avoid household chores and even people. So, why do so many come into SL and create a mess in a virtual world? Why do so many come here to sling mud, spread rumors, and toss about deep seeded judgmental rhetoric? Its simply pathetic.
I can only imagine that these people are so miserable in their real lives that they’ve somehow become convinced that by creating havoc here, somehow makes their real lives seem better. That somehow the fact that they’ve created such a mess in a virtual world that they somehow have developed power. Just theories, honestly, I cannot know. What I do know is that if you don’t want unnecessary drama and general messes in you SL, you definitely have power there. Cut out the toxic people, the toxic thoughts, and above all, keep your nose out of other people’s business. If they are not hurting YOU, then why do you care so much what your ex boyfriend, ex girlfriend or ex bestie is doing now? It seems to me, you need to work on healing and letting go, rather than deflecting and holding onto resentments that do more harm to your spirit than anyone else’s.

life-is-messy-enough1

Why bother wasting precious energy on hate? No one is forcing you to be in SL, no one is forcing any of us to be here. No one is forcing romantic relationships or uncomfortable lifestyles on anyone. With options like block, mute, teleport, and signing out, there’s simply no excuse to come to SL and be miserable. I guess I’m a little tired of hearing everyone gripe about drama and politics and what they hate about SL. I’m more interested in the things I love, the things that I enjoy, the amazing friends I’ve made from every corner of the globe. Yes, I suppose I’m bitching a little bit about the miserable people, but I’ve brought my piece of mind to my blog and no one is being forced to read it. Hell, at least one person I know only looks at the picture, clicks like and moves on. I’m not sure he’s ever read a blog post in his life. *winks at Kess, cuz she knows him even better than I*

life-is-messy-enough2

So, now that I’ve shared a piece of my mind (no, I really can’t afford it, give it back), let me share with you some really nice goodies that are being delivered across the grid by some of SL’s top creators and designers. Have a look at the details below for the whats and wheres. I’m off to go do more things I love and I hope you will do the same. Afterall, shopping is one of my favorite SL hobbies…totally a hobby, right?

Sady and the Dragon?

Join me, won’t you? For another journey down the rabbit hole into what’s otherwise known as Sady’s blogging process…and off we goooooooooo……. Just wave your fingers in front of your face and say, “Dooodliedooh Doodliedooh Doodliedoooh.” Think dream sequence from an old campy film…*nods.*
Alright, soooo…sometimes things just kinda happen to me, see? So, I’m fumbling through folders with ideas swirling around in my head like crazy when suddenly things just start falling into place and before you know it I’ve got this awesome scene with a giant dragon and me decked out in gold. Awesome! So, I grab the shots, do my editing…I’m happy with how it turns out. I slap two shots in my blog. I grab hyperlinks, tags, and categories. Boom, blog is almost ready to go. Now…what am I going to write?
I love fantasy pictures and creating fun scenes. I love movies with dragons but when it comes to actual lore? Nada. Sorry, I’m bone dry on that subject. I know they look super cool and I love them. I have a kissing dragons tattoo that I designed in rl, but I really don’t know any genuine dragon lore. So, naturally I went to Google to expand my knowledge base.
Step one, enter “golden dragon.” Step two, get bombarded with an endless list of Chinese restaurants across the U.S.A. Well, ok…lets try “gold dragon.” Ooooh, goodness, now I’m seeing links for all sorts of sites relating to Dungeons and Dragons, Dragon City, Forgotten Realms, and a few other gaming sites. Okay, this is not the lore I’m looking for. Back to the drawing board. I showed the photo to Josh and he suggested I write a story about Sady and the Dragon, but all I could think was Puff the Magic Dragon…which then made me think of smoking weed and how I really wish I had some right now. Ok, so no rule saying I have to write about dragons, right? So, I look up quotes about gold and the first thing I come across is a quote by Bob Marley and I’m back to wanting to smoke weed! Damnit!

annex-fgc2

Well, I don’t have any weed, but I do have some lindens…so retail therapy here I come…and well, more insane blogs coming your way! Meanwhile, how about you all get out there and discover your own fantasy look, especially those of you that actually know more of the lore. Ha! Tis the season…week…look, there’s fantasy stuff going on at events all over…time to bring some of your dreams to the screen. Whether you role play or just like to dress up in awesome fantasy attire…there’s fantasy loot every where you look right now.
