Every night I wanna live in color through a white-blue screen I got a technicolor vision going vivid in my white-blue jeans I know it’s complicated ’cause everyone that I’ve dated Says they hate it ’cause they don’t know what to do with me, do with me Know that my identity’s always gettin’ the best of me I’m the worst of my enemies and I don’t really know what to do with me Yeah, I don’t really know what to do with me
You can take everything I have You can break everything I am Like I’m made of glass Like I’m made of paper Go on and try to tear me down I will be rising from the ground Like a skyscraper, like a skyscraper
This week has been insanely busy and crazy. This weekend will be more of the same. I’ve been all over the place emotionally and mentally. However, today I was squealing with delight when I saw that my sim, Curiosity Lake, was featured in the official Destination Guide. I have to say that I’m rather chuffed. (Not an American term, but I like it.) Gonna keep this post short and sweet, cuz I got a heap of work to do today. I hope you all have a great weekend and if you’re looking for something to do tonight, I’ll be hosting the Bonfire Bash part over at Burrow tonight and would love to see you!
I’ve been wanting to do a picture like this for quite sometime…a dancer in the woods with fishes. A bit surreal, but as I’ve said before…surrealism is probably my favorite art genre. Luckily for me, Foxwood released these fantastic ghost fish at Collabor88. Then as if reading my mind, Dead Dollz released the Harajuku Set. As soon as I saw the set from Dead Dollz, I knew what I was going to do. I only hope that everyone appreciates it as much as I loved doing it. ♥

We’ve all had someone do something awful to us at some point in our lives. Whether it was something massively tragic like child abuse, being attacked, or simply betrayed by someone we believed loved us more than they did. No matter the degree or the nature of the pain, the bottom line is that someone hurt us. As humans (though some of us are more cat like) we instinctively want to know why. We want our pain to be acknowledged by the perpetrator. And last but not least, we want retribution.
I learned a lesson about “why” when I was a kid. My father had this awesome friend, Randy. I absolutely adored him and he was always making me laugh. I remember he came over one day and began saying that WHY was irrelevant. He started breaking down all my why questions. Why is the sky blue? “Drop the why and you simply have a fact. It doesn’t matter why. The point is that it IS.” Is the sky blue? Yes. Why do we park in the drive way and drive on the parkway? Do we park in the drive way and drive on the parkway? Yes. He taught me early on that unless there was something to be gained from knowing why, there was no point in asking. So, I ask you…why did someone hurt me? Did someone hurt me? Yes. Knowing why serves no real purpose. Its not going to help me heal. It’s not going to change what happened. It’s not going to do anything, except make me ask more useless questions. I’m not an FBI profiler, I’m not going to get to the bottom of what makes a monster tick. It is simply for curiosity’s sake that I want to know why. It is not going to lesson my pain one bit.
Why do we need perpetrators to acknowledge what they did? Well, I just talked about why questions. So, the real question is do we need perpetrators to acknowledge what they did? No. We know what they did. The only reason we should NEED an admission of guilt is if we feel as though people do not believe us. Even then, we know what happened and whether admitted or not, the perpetrator knows. As far as the rest of the world, it only matters if there are criminal charges in question. Which leads me to the retribution part. We all want to feel vindicated. We trust in the laws of our government, our religions, karma, etc. However, the truth is that many people will never pay for their bad deeds. EVER. For us to walk around holding onto some sort of resentment waiting for them to pay the price? Well, that’s a bit like walking around with stones in our pockets for absolutely no reason except to be reminded that we’re carrying around these heavy rocks just to be reminded that we’re being fools for carrying around heavy rocks.
At the very end of it all, the only thing we can change in all of this is how we go forward. Regardless of why or acknowledgment or even retribution, we can choose to carry those stones in our pockets punishing ourselves for what someone else did. OR we can empty our pockets and walk away with our heads held high knowing that whatever happened is in our past. It’s behind us…so without looking back, just bend over a bit, smack yourself on the butt and tell all that crap to kiss to your ass!
I know that a lot of people have been to the recent round of Collabor88, tilted their heads and said, “WTF?!” On the other hand, I have been in absolute heaven. Surrealism is my favorite genre of art. This round not only inspires me, but provides me with such an amazing collection of surrealistic creations to bring my ideas to life. I’m really quite excited about it. So, prepare yourselves for some rather interesting pictures. Between the Surrealism theme at C88 and the Cyberlogic them at TLC….I’m going to get adventurous!

I’ve been after Sassy to make me a shirt like this for ages. She finally did it! My very own short tee complete with under boob! She went all out, too. There are seven textures to choose from, three of them are patterns, and six graphics, including plain. Your graphic choices are kitten (as seen below), Fierce, #blessed, babygirl, virgin, and overdressed. You can grab this awesome shirt over at Belle. I personally recommend the fatpack, I mean, with all these choices how can you possibly resist?
So, its no secret that I like hanging out at FMD. Every Saturday they have events with prizes. I don’t dress up hoping for a prize, I just dress up, because it’s fun. So, this past weekend the theme was fetishes. Now, I’m not innocent by a long shot and I would consider myself to enjoy some pretty kinky stuff, but as for an actual fetish? I’m not sure I have one. According to dictionary.com a fetish is:
an objectregardedwithawe as beingtheembodiment or habitation of a potentspirit or as having magicalpotency.
anyobject,idea,etc.,elicitingunquestioningreverence,respect, or devotion
Psychology. anyobject or nongenitalpart of thebodythatcauses a habitualeroticresponse or fixation.
Number 3, which I underlined, seems to be the most recognized definition. While there are things I like quite a bit, I can’t call any of them habitual. However, I had lots of cute stuff and put together this little outfit and called myself a fuck bunny, having no clue what that actually meant. Mind you, I didn’t go marching (or hopping…tehehe) into the club announcing that I was a fuck bunny. I only told a few friends and we all giggled. However, I decided to look up the definition and being a slang term, I knew the best place to find my answer would indeed be none other than the Urban Dictionary. Here’s their definition:
A cute innocent looking girl that is a maniac in bed.
That sweetheart in the HR department who you know would hump you raw given the opportunity.
A virginal, often religious, girl who grew up in the country sheltered by her mother that turns into a complete nympho in bed late in high school.
I don’t know how innocent looking I am, but I won’t dispute the rest of definition #1. I don’t work in HR and while I might hump someone raw if given the opportunity, it wouldn’t just be anyone. As for #3? Yeah, definitely not me. So, there you have it…perhaps you learned something new today, perhaps you didn’t. I know I sure did. Now hop along to the next blog or leave a comment if you’d like. I do so love it when my readers reply. In the meantime, the details below will tell you how to achieve any and all parts of MY fuck bunny look. *grins & nibbles on a….carrot*
“I don’t know what you had in mind
But here we stand on opposing sides
Let’s go to war
Let’s go to war
We arm ourselves with the wrongs we’ve done
Name them off one by one
Let’s go to war
Let’s go to war
Everything you say
Everything you do
You push it in and you cut me down
And you cut me down
(War, war, war)
Screaming at the ones we love
Like we forgot who we can trust
Screaming at the top of our lungs
On the grounds where we feel safe
Do we feel safe? Do we feel safe?”
~ Nothing More – Go To War
