She’s Like the Wind

Since the designer of this dress is a singer and the picture keeps planting an earworm in my head…I’m going to do the music things…YouTube link and lyrics provided, of course! For the funhaters, you can just scroll on down to the deets to go shopping! *giggles*

Patrick Swayze She’s Like the Wind

She’s like the wind,
Through my tree
She rides the night
Next to me

She leads me through moonlight
Only to burn me with the sun
She’s taken my heart
But she doesn’t know what she’s done

Feel her breath in my face
Her body close to me
Can’t look in her eyes
She’s out of my league

Just a fool to believe
I have anything she needs
She’s like the wind

I look in the mirror
And all I see
Is a young old man
With only a dream
Am I just fooling myself
That she’ll stop the pain?
Living without her
I’d go insane!

I feel her breath in my face
Her body close to me
Can’t look in her eyes
She’s out of my league

Just a fool to believe
I have anything she needs
She’s like the wind

I feel your breath in my face
Your body close to me
Can’t look in your eyes
You’re out of my league

Just a fool to believe (Just a fool to believe)
She’s like the wind….

Happy Birthday, Fancy Decor!♥

So, I’m going to take a break from story telling for a minute to talk about Jake and Fancy Decor, as the store is celebrating its 3rd birthday this year and he offered up this absolutely gorgeous cake as a group gift. As you can see the detail is just amazing, but so it goes with everything from Fancy Decor. You can honestly know you are getting quality items from a designer that truly cares about the tiniest aesthetics of every item he makes. I will always have a special place in my heart for both Jake and Fancy Decor.

Fancy Decor was one of the first stores to take me on a blogger and Jake has continued to support my blogging efforts in other projects that he’s been involved in. What some people might not realize is that Jake also runs an art museum in Second Life. Its actually quite spectacular and I highly recommend it for anyone that loves art. You can grab the slurl right here: The Vordun Museum and Gallery

I think one of my favorite exhibits to date is the Sincerely Yours. Its a display of postcards from all over the world. That might not sound exciting, but I promise you…it is fascinating and quite moving. To top it off, Jake went on a trip a while back and asked if anyone wanted a post card. I said I’d love one, gave him my address and lo & behold the post card came just as the exhibit opened. So, it very special to me, just like Jake.♥

So, no, this isn’t a normal blog post, this is more of a Happy Birthday, Fancy Decor homemade card kinda post….*laughs*…I love ya, JakeyPooh!!♥

happy bday fd

Damn Cat!

One of these days she would learn to stop chasing the damn cat when she runs out the door! Stupid auto-lock doors! Now here she was, wearing nothing but shoes, sitting on the stoop waiting for her roommate. She kwew that Grace would most likely come along doing the walk of shame any minute now. She certainly hoped that Grace would make it home before their sexy landlord came along to find her sitting naked on the stairs with that asshole cat. Lord knows that man had seen enough antics out of these two to last him a lifetime.

Feeding Grounds

Legend has it, she was the daughter of a siren and a deaf sailor, she possessed the hypnotic power and divine hunger of her mother accompanied by the humanity and mortality of her father. It was unknown to her as to how long she would live or what could kill her aside from starvation, but she knew that if she fed on the souls of sailors she aged far slower than normal humans. As it were, she was 167 years old, but didn’t look more than 30. It was only when she did not feed that she would begin to age and she could never venture too far from the shore. For many years she fed on the souls of pirates, but as time went by there were fewer and fewer and those she could find hardly had souls to feed upon.
She was seeking a new feeding ground when she happened upon a beach dotted with ancient ruins. It felt like home and soon enough she developed a taste for rich yacht owners, particularly those driven to take advantage of a beautiful young women. Their souls were especially dark and delicious. She fed both her hunger and humanity with each that she took. She could not know how often they would happen along, but she could recognize the smell of pompous, self-entitlement from miles away.
Smart mothers have tried for years to warn their sons of such a beast, but they continue not to listen…and so she continues to feed.

at peace

Done

She’d finally had enough of his crap. She would never be good enough. No one would. He set her up to fail, time after time. “Dress sexy,” he said, “I want to show you off.” So, she dug out the slinkiest dress she owned. “You look like a whore! Go change!” he yelled, “And hurry up!” That was the last time he was going to call her a whore. She was not a doll for him to dress up and show off. She was not going to be made to feel ashamed for trying to please him. It was futile anyway. There was no pleasing him. The only thing he ever did was yell at her and make her feel like crap. Seeing her crumpled in the corner crying was the only way she could find the the resemblance of a heart. Then he would say he was sorry. Then he would kiss her gently and tell her how much he loved her. She was tired of the games. This time she was done and as she said goodbye and walked out the door, all he could say was, “I knew it! You’re a cheating whore…go to your lover, hope he treats you like the whore you are!”
She couldn’t even cry. She’d gotten so used to his verbal abuse that it rolled off her like water on a duck’s back. She was done. She was walking away for good this time. She deserved better and she knew it. She didn’t even bother looking back. She just kept walking.

Facing Her Fear

The water was so cold! She slid her body in feet first….slowly lowering her legs into the frigid pool. She hadn’t been swimming since she was a child and almost drown, but she had to get over that. She had to face her fear. She loved the water, so being afraid of getting in beyond the depths of a bathtub was something she was determined to do. This was the year. After all, how was she going to host a pool party if she couldn’t even get in her own pool.
Yes, she had a pool that she had never swam in. She thought by getting the gorgeous pool with waterfalls and plants installed…well, she thought she would swim. Instead, her nieces used it every other weekend. No more, she was going to do this. She could and she would. She sat there, frozen and shivering with water to her upper thighs. Her arms shaking, “Just let go!” She repeated to herself over and over until her arms gave out and she was in the water. She flailed about for what seemed like an hour, but was honestly more like a minute. Grabbing at the edge of the pool, she got her head above the water and smiled to herself. “I didn’t drown,” she thought.
She inched her way around to the shallow end of the pool until she could stand up and waded about with the water chest high. She noticed that the parts of her that were under water, were warmer than those above and she went a little deeper…until the water was neck high. She remembered her swimming lessons as a kid and slowly lifted her feet, swinging her arms to and fro, “I’m treading water!”
Alright, she was going to be fine. Swimming, check, Overcoming her fear of water, check. Now…about those airplanes….
