Push or Play

She growls at her phone, tempted to throw the sadistic invention smashing into a wall as she fails to complete that insidious level that she’s been stuck on for weeks. Oh sure, make it easy at first. Make it alluring with their delicious candy crushing abilities. Then begins the journey into the dark forest of the never ending levels. Is there indeed an endgame? Has there been a person on record for beating such a game? And the most terrifying thought of all….How many of us have spent far too long on the toilet playing such a game?  Oh, c’mon, I can’t be the only person playing these silly phone games until my limbs go numb, clearly a signal that it’s time to get my arse off the toilet and on with my day.

What happened to the days of magazines and questionably dirty, crusty socks on bathroom floors, and should we now provide antiseptic wipes for our phones along with hand soap????

Easter Fun

There are plenty of controversial theories about the origins of Easter and I will not even begin to dig into that topic, particularly in a Second Life blog. Those that know me well, pretty much know where I stand on religion as a whole and that’s good enough for me. Once upon a time, Easter meant bunnies and candy for me…now, its symbolic of so much more. It represents personal pain, change, and this year, I’ve decided it’s going to represent rebirth…MY rebirth.

With that said…Let’s focus on the fun side. Since bunnies are so freaking adorable and I had so much fun putting together a bunny with attitude look, I thought why not share my nonchalant attitude towards the holiday in a picture. Also, one of my favorite memories about Easter as a child was coloring eggs…and EVERYTHING I’m wearing came with a color change HUD (even the chair, table & picture frame have texture options), so there are lots of variations one could make simply by wearing the same items I’m wearing. So, go out there and find your Easter look and above all else…have fun with it! ❤

Live or Die

“Live or die,” she says as she dropped the transplanted hosta into its new home in her garden. The she carefully placed some cool from the shade rocks at its base and smiled, “I hope you like your new home.”

Taken out of context, I think my friend might come out sounding a bit careless. However, she actually loves plants and has this amazing green thumb. We had wine while sitting in her garden this afternoon and she made me realize that sometimes life is just that cut and dry. Live or die. It’s a choice we have to make. As I figure out how to live a new life, so shall that plant. Let’s hope that like me, it chooses to live.

*giggles* One really hosta make a choice eventually, don’t they? And I choose to live…in both lives. And in Second Life, I don’t need a green thumb to surround myself with beautiful hostas, because Artisan Fantasy has made the ones pictured below and they are gorgeous!

Pretty Things Just Taste Better

“Pretty things just taste better,” she purred as she pulled only the prettiest grapes off the bunch, popping one in her glittering red mouth before putting the rest on her plate. She was quite accustomed to pretty things…pretty men, pretty cars, pretty jewelry, pretty clothes, a pretty reflection, and most importantly pretty delusions. She no longer saw her true self in the mirror, she saw the younger version of herself. There in the mirror she saw only the inner beauty she radiated, untouched by the hands of time and unclear without her glasses. She was quite grateful for weak eyes for this very reason.

I suppose that while beauty is in the eye of the beholder, society has set a few norms for most of us. Gourmet foods often look quite aesthetic, but do they always taste better? It really comes down to personal preference, doesn’t it? One of the many reasons I love Second Life is that it allows me the freedom to set my own standard for what’s pretty and surround myself with lots of pretty pixel treats, including friends. So, as I rejoin the blogging world for the first time in over four years, I’ve gathered some of my closest friends and asked them to wear some of their favorite pretty things.
