Wicked Dreams

So, I’ve been in bed sick with a stomach bug for the last couple of days. I tried sitting at my computer, but it just made me nauseous. The bed won out, I could lay there and binge on Netflix while I drifted in and out of some of the craziest dreams I’ve ever had. I can’t dream of normal things. No, I had to dream about mutant bugs and spiders…then mutant puppies and kittens…swarms of all invading my house. That’s just the two that stood out. It seems like a week since I sat down at my computer, although its not been a full 24hrs since I tried. I wrote about living off the grid and I feel like I’ve been out of this world thanks to some medication I took for my stomach that knocked me out.
I dreamed about Second Life mixed up with Real Life. I dreamed about my responsibilities here and I even tried to talk to a few people on FB messenger. God only knows what they must of thought of my nonsense talk and typos. I’m quite tired of my bed and the fog is starting to lift, I think. I don’t get put down by stomach bugs too often, so I’m hoping it won’t happen again for a very long time…in the meantime, I’ll surrender to sleep when it comes and brace myself for more wicked dreams.

On or Off the Grid?

When I put this scene out for the Make Believe post, I was fantasizing about how nice it might actually be to live off the grid, away from the world, technology, and people. I thought about where would be the ideal place in the world to live such a way as not to get too cold, too hot, too wet, too dry….and then I remembered I’m geographically challenged.
While writing this, I’m dealing with some sort of stomach bug. While rushing to the bathroom and unsure which end something is going to spew from, I’m finding great comfort in knowing the bathroom is less than six feet from my bed. Feeling like four day old road kill, I find that the comfort of my memory foam mattress and pillows combined with 800 thread count sheets and pillowy soft duvet are modern conveniences I’m not ready to give up just yet. I think I’ll leave living off the grid to The Land of Make Believe.

The Land of Make Believe

When I was a kid I loved playing make believe. I never had an invisible friend, because my friends were stuffed animals. They all had their own names and personalities. *gives you a look* Stop laughing! I’m totally serious! Skunky was my bestest friend in the world and I think I only put him to rest about five years ago, though he’d spent the better part of his life in a plastic bag in storage. Bless him, he held on as long as he could, but bandaids and lipstick (shut up) only took him so far. Missing most of his stuffing and the ability to cuddle at night, he took his place in storage with memories until I binge watched Hoarders. Anyway, my family used to go camping quite a lot when I was a child and I used to imagine living like that all the time, not just on weekend trips with the family.

My parents, believe it or not, were pretty lenient about how I decorated my room. As a teen my walls were covered with posters and nothing was ever said. When I was little though, my father would help me build forts in my room that resembled tents and I would keep it up for weeks at a time. Naturally when I discovered Second Life, I found my make believe heaven. I can live in an apocalyptic world or off the grid for as long as I want. Death Row Designs makes it even better by making beautiful creations with which I can bring my imagination to life. How freaking cool is that?

RBF

I’ve been dealing with RBF, Resting Bitch Face, all my life. I came by it genetically, that’s my excuse anyway. My mother always looked mad unless she was laughing or smiling, even then she had a tight lipped smile. She had dental issues that she was ashamed of. Honestly, I don’t think anyone would have noticed, because her laugh is adorable and her smile is radiant. But hey, we all have something we really hate about ourselves, right? My father was in the U. S. Army for 20 years, so again, very serious and stern face, unless smiling or laughing. Funny thing is I really wanted to have one of those pretty faces that could look at a camera all sultry like, but alas…I,, too, was cursed with RBF! No such luck! I quickly learned that if a camera came out, I had to show an expression or look pissed off. Mostly, I just avoid being in front of the camera in RL, just another thing I love about Second Life. I can do things here that I can never do in the real world. Like NOT having RBF if I don’t want to. *giggles* Then again, its easy enough to have one, too. *grins*

The Hours Fade

“so the hours fade
something’s got to break
something’s got to change
so the hours fade
something’s got to break
something’s got to change”
The Kays Lavelle ~ The Hours

I haven’t been myself this week. As much as I try, I cannot shake this scrambled feeling. Its as if the reception in my brain is fuzzy. I’ve been emotional to say the least. Sometimes I’m slow to react to situations simply because I need time to process, but this week…I dunno, its like everything has been processing really slow. The ringing in my ears is louder than even and the pain that lives within my body has spiked. These things make it even harder for me to concentrate. Sometimes its all I can do to just sit still.
I’m sure the wonky weather in my area has played a major role in this, but something’s got to change…for I feel I’m going mad. This morning I didn’t even want to get out of bed, but as my coffee sat on my nightstand getting colder I forced myself to get up…come to the PC and write some of this down. I can’t even know if this will make sense to anyone else, but its where I’m at and I’ve found that more often than not…I’m not alone in my feelings. As the hours fade, I hope that this haze, too, will fade and I will get back to feeling more like myself.

Let’s Get It Started!

Okay, I’m going to just jump right in and tell you all about the gorgeous stuff in these pictures! I’m so in love with the -DRD- Garden Party gacha set! I have the complete set and have tried to capture all of it in these pictures. However, my yard was not quite big enough for the light tent. *sighs* Everyone surely knows how amazing the DRD team is and their creations are always quite popular. I’m pretty sure I own half the store. This set is so incredible and detailed that it really makes me want to throw a party and I just might!

Don’t mind the couple canoodling on the Bonfire Bench, this post is not about them (Josh and me) or what they’re wearing! This post is all about how this set has inspired me to create a beautiful garden party area right outside my house. I could take tons of pictures and not capture it all. So, I’ve done my best to give you three shots of the scene I managed to create right on the edge and partly over the water.
Something I haven’t even played with yet, is that some of these items have huds for changing the seasons, like the trees! You definitely want to go get your collection started, cuz this is a party waiting to happen. I even teased Josh and told him I was setting up for our reception. (Relax your knickers, its not happening!)

You’ll notice there’s a plain deck here without all the lights attached, well, let me explain how that was made possible without owning two of the same rares and disassembling one of them. Death Row Designs is one of the only stores I know of that offers a copy/mod exchange on unopened gacha items. So, you’ve played the gacha until you got all the items you wanted, right? Well, unless you plan on giving them away some day or selling them, you should definitely take the unopened boxes to the store, go the gacha exchange area…find the machine that matches your items and rez the box on the little platform they have there. Instantly, you will receive a copy/mod, no transfer version of the gacha item. Now you don’t have to worry about losing those precious DRD items and you can do modifications to create extra deck space like I did! Isn’t that amazing? Yes, I know…incredible!

DRD Garden

So, where can you get all these amazing items? At Death Row Designs, of course! No special events to wade through, just go to the store and wander about. I have no doubt you’ll find more than one item you’re just dying to have!
