Legends

Litte Joey loved going through his grandfathers old pictures. As he pulled out a particularly old one he’d never seen before, he looked up at his grandfather, “Who is this, PapPaw?”
The old man’s shaky hands reached for the photo and smiled, “Oh, these two are legends. Josh and Sady were responsible for saving the entire grid from impending doom.”
Little Joey’s eyes got big, “Oh PapPaw, tell me more! Tell me all about Sosh and Jady!”
The old man chuckled and put the photo back in the box closing it up, “Another time, Joey, time for you to get to bed.” He tucked his grandson in for the night, kissing his forehead, “Sweet dreams, Joey.”
As he climbed into bed with his wife, he kissed her sweetly, “Little Joey found the picture of us from the Apocalypse party at ThereAfter. Hope you’re ready to be a hero,” he chuckles, “Telling him quite a story tomorrow.”
Sady giggled and kissed Josh, “You and your stories, my love.”
“I learned it from watching you, okay?”
They both laughed and slipped off to sleep.

Love Me

How could this be anything but a music post? The minute I saw this gorgeous Neveah jumpsuit from Cynful I knew exactly how I wanted to photograph it. It screams “love me” doesn’t it? This led me to an earworm….so here you go…link & lyrics…details below the picture. Have a good one♥

Lovepool by The Cardigans

Dear, I fear we’re facing a problem
You love me no longer, I know
And maybe there is nothing that I can do
To make you do
Mama tells me I shouldn’t bother
That I ought to stick to another man
A man that surely deserves me
But I think you do!
So I cry, I pray and I beg
Love me love me
Say that you love me
Fool me fool me
Go on and fool me
Love me love me
Pretend that you love me
Leave me leave me
Just say that you need me
So I cry, and I beg for you to
Love me love me
Say that you love me
Leave me leave me
Just say that you need me
I can’t care ’bout anything but you
Lately I have desperately pondered,
Spent my nights awake and I wonder
What I could have done in another way
To make you stay
Reason will not lead to solution
I will end up lost in confusion
I don’t care if you really care
As long as you don’t go

love me

Just Be

Yesterday was a bad day. Nothing in particular happened, it was just one of those days where I felt like I had no people skills. My mind was cloudy. I hard a really hard time just thinking about anything that wasn’t laid out in front of me in black and white. I wanted to stay in bed more than anything. To hide under the covers from the world. I did not care about the eclipse, but felt like I should. I just didn’t.
I’m quite fortunate that Josh understands me better than most and understood that I just needed to be. Simply be. We watched some Netflix together, a comedy and we laughed. We didn’t talk much, but we shared time together and he let me be myself.  A few of my friends understood, Rebel even suggested it might be hormones at that’s certainly a possibility. She sent me the link to one of my favorite bad mood songs and that made me grin. I think only three people were aware of how I was feeling and all three were very compassionate.
It wasn’t one of those situations that could be fixed and they knew that. They knew I simply needed to just be. I suppose that might not make sense to some, but for I do believe we all have days like that. We just wake up on the wrong side of the proverbial bed and want more than anything to lash out or be left alone. I knew if I was forced to interact with too many people yesterday I would end up saying or doing something I’d later regret. I went to bed quite early, which led me to wake up too soon. I lied there in my bed thinking how I could make sure today would be different and I just decided that it will be. I cannot suffer another day like yesterday. It felt ridiculous to be so seemingly angry for no apparent reason. Today, I will have a good day if it kills me. *thinks for a minute and grins* Or perhaps kills someone else. *smirks*

ThereAfter

I’ve had the great honor and privilege of being involved behind the scenes with ThereAfter: A Post Apocalyptic Affair. Naturally, I love the theme of the event, but this event is unlike any other I’ve seen. This is not only a themed shopping event. Everyday there are additional activities going on Fashion Theater, DJs, and Live singers! The scenery alone is worth a visit and you will definitely find some incredible must have quality designs. I’m featuring just a few things here, but this is a must see event! I’m not going to waste your time chatting on and on about it. I want you take a look at the scene I’ve created using just a few of the amazing items you’ll find there, then go check it out for yourself. You can be sure, you’ll be seeing a lot more of this event from me, as well. Happy Apocalypse!!♥

Past Present Future

Sometimes when I’m driving on the interstate to get from one side of town to the other, I think about how the roads in my town were when I was a kid. There was no interstate going through our town then, a couple of highways, but that’s it. I think how spaced aged it kinda looks and I wonder what our ancestors would think of it. Thinking back to the horse and buggy days, before cars and paved roads were even a thing.
I think about how much things have changed simply in my lifetime, much less my mother’s, and then the scariest of them all…how things will change over the course of our children’s lives. I always thought the future would be more streamlined and cleaner. Nicer somehow, but it seems all the hate and dirty parts of the world have simply been more exposed.
I wonder what how you imagine the future. I wonder how children of today imagine the future. I wonder how our parents imagined the future. Share your thoughts with me, I’d really like to know.

F*ck Yeah

Some people say I cuss too much and that cussing shows a lack of a better vocabulary or that it’s a lazy way of expressing yourself. I say, “Fuck off!” I like cussing. I especially like the fact that so many people allow a word to offend them.  A word! Not a racial slur, not a hate filled word, just a word…that is one of the most versatile words in the ever so eloquent English language. Yes, it is a legitimate word. It has earned its place in the dictionary with all sorts of examples and you can even find its origin if you look. Seriously, Google your favorite online dictionary, it’s in there!
I’m an adult, I cuss. I’m a responsible adult that knows there’s a time and place for everything. So, no, I’m not going to scream FUUUCKKK when I stub my toe in the middle of a mall, but when I’m talking to my dog in my yard I will certainly encourage her to hurry the fuck up. *laughs* So, have a good fucking day! (You can take that whichever way you like.)

Show Some Love

So, there’s been a lot of hurt feelings on Facebook this week, because of a newish thing called Sarahah. It was designed for businesses so that employees could leave constructive feedback for each other, but it quickly found its way to Facebook and the SL community latched on. We were off and running. Many people refused to take part, knowing full well they would not take it well if insulted or while others publicly voiced their disdain for the site suggesting that if one could not say it without hiding behind anonymity they had no business saying it at all. Meanwhile, many were like me and saw it as something fun to do and jumped right off the bridge into the Sarahah internet river.
From there it either went uphill or downhill. For many it went downhill very quickly. Designers got attacked rather viciously. Yes, many of them received a lot of praise as well, but actual constructive criticism seemed to be absent. Many others reported being attacked and bullied. While some of these people took it in stride, others were quite hurt by the cruel words they found from anonymous contributors. A few even became aware of several secret admirers. While others found disturbing messages about people wanting to wear their skin or keep their eyeballs in jars. *giggles* I can’t begin to imagine who would have left such disturbing messages. *giggles again* I think almost everyone received some positive and loving messages, regardless of whatever else they found.
I personally received a total of 34 messages, most of which were very loving, kind, and positive. I was quite surprised and honestly, I little disappointed. I had prepared myself for some serious insults. I thought surely someone would be hateful, but I was quite fortunate. I think the closest I came to an insult was a rather astute observation from someone claiming not to know me very well. I had to laugh, because they were pretty accurate with what they said although they used an outdated terminology for their diagnosis of my mental health. *laughs* I had a few somewhat flirtation comments and a few that made no sense. I got no weird or insulting comments. Mostly, it was love and I was overwhelmed.
I was quite surprised by the reactions of a few that received negative comments. Some basically threw tantrums all over Facebook. Others quickly realized they did not possess the thick skin necessary to handle cowardly insults and shut down their Sarahah links. While others kept up their pages and found a new topic to bitch about on social media.
I am saddened that so many used it to bully and abuse others, but so goes the way of the internet. I think it’s important for everyone to remember that no matter what hateful or negative comments you received, there are far more people that love you. You are beautiful and wonderful in your own way. You are all amazing creatures. Whether you participated or not, please know that you are loved…not just by me, but many others. It is my hope that this weekend we will all remind the ones we love that they are special to us. As you proceed through your weekend and eventually into next week, show some love…not just to others, but to yourselves as well. ♥
