Maybe I Will Learn

“How many fires must a girl walk through
Before it finally rains?
Will she wake up on the other side
Once the water drains?”

Cats, Naps, & Snacks

I know that Bueno didn’t make this shirt specifically for me. However, he might as well have made it for me, cuz these are three of my favorite things. In fact, just yesterday afternoon, I laid down for an 8 hour nap with my cat, Mr. Mayhem. I know, I know, 8 hrs is a full night’s sleep. It was only supposed to be a nap! Well, I’m fully rested now, I can tell you that! As for Mr. Mayhem, he’s a little upset that its pouring down rain and he can’t go out for his morning romp around the building. As for the snack, well, I had a rather pleasant bowl of steamed broccoli and rice around 2am. It was quite nice and not too heavy, considering the hour. As it IS pouring down outside, I imagine, the cat and I will probably enjoy another nap soon….perhaps we’ll even share a snack. Though, his treats kinda taste like ass…so I’m not sure we’ll share a snack. It’s the weekend, so maybe you’ll be able to enjoy a nap yourself. In the meantime, happy shopping!♥

No time to hate

“I got no time to hate people who hate me. I’m too busy loving the people who love me.” ~RuPaul

I have to admit that I’ve been binging on RuPaul’s DragRace All Stars and I swear those ladies are the fiercest of the fierce! They make me wish I could be a drag queen! Alas, I cannot, for I’m not only a woman, but I’ve got the grace of a crack head in a porcelain factory. Just another reason for me to love the outlet that Second Life provides me. Here I can dress up or dress down. I can be as sexy as I want to be and despite those that call this platform a game, those emotions…those feelings…they flow through me from this virtual world into the real world. I heard RuPaul say the quote above the other night and the very next day, someone special to me that I thought hated me came to me. We confronted the issues we’ve been having and we’ve decided to start clean. We need each other, because we both fight a lot of the same demons. I’m taking this gift (quote) from RuPaul and I’m going to apply it to my life. I will remember it and stop letting the negative energies of others enter my bubble.

Don’t Leave

“There’s nothing wrong with a little space
But not right now, don’t leave
There’s nothing wrong with a little time, a little space
For the memories, for the good things
Turn around now, turn around
Don’t leave me now”
~ The Paper Kites – Don’t Keep Driving

Strange

“Hey, anyone can get love, anyone can get laid
You know you’re home when you find the ones who
Stay brave enough not to tame, they let you burst into flames
Stoke the coals and then watch you blow, yeah
They’re the ones make you trust in the universe
When you’re lost and you’re left and it’s getting worse
They’re the ones who you know will get you by
We are all strange
And it ain’t never, never, ever gonna change
We are all strange
And it ain’t never, ever, never gonna change”

Red Sky

I took this picture before Christmas and just hadn’t gotten around to using it. I remember thinking about the little rhyme my mother taught me as a child, “Red sky at night, Sailor’s delight. Red sky in morning, Sailor’s take warning.” Beyond that, I don’t have anything really deep to say, except go try the demo of this dress, there are subtle levels of sheer and lace that really make this a work of art. My photo doesn’t begin to do it justice.

I was the brightest light you ever knew

“I said hey you, with your world painted blue
I said fuck you, I was the brightest light you ever knew”
~ Kailee Morgue – F**k U

I’ve wasted so much of my life giving the best parts of me to people who only pretend to appreciate it, but in the end they never do. They prove time and time again that they are just another liar…another disappointment…another fake friend…another user. I’m over that now. I’m going to live my life for me and only me going forward. Its time for me to take my life back and I’m done bowing down before some undeserving asshat.
I’m always saying that I do what I want, but apparently what I wanted was to sell my soul just to hear two words that now ring through my ears like a bitter lie and the three words? Well, I’m not even going there. I’m pissed off and I’m tired of being disrespected. I’m tired of disrespecting myself. Now is the time for my “friends” to decide if they are real or not, because I’m done dealing with fake people and liars just for the sake of someone else. Those of you out there talking shit behind my back? Knock yourselves out. Your hate gives me power I never sought, but if your feelings for me are that strong…well, as the song says, “F**k U!”
Oh and before you fuckers get all paranoid about who is telling what? Well, its like this…I am an energy reader and I feed off energy like a vampire. So, when your energy is bitter and makes me sick to my stomach, I know what you’re about. I see through you and your lies. Oh and you lost out on one of the best friends you could’ve ever had. And ya know what? If you even THINK that I’m talking to/about you, then I damn sure am or you wouldn’t even think that.

The Five Year Rule

Quite some time ago, I saw a Cher interview in which she said that he mother gave her some advice that she now calls the five year rule, “If its not going to matter in five years, then its doesn’t matter.”

Clearly, this is easier done than said, but when you really think about it, its good sensible advice. I’ve applied this as often as I can and it certainly helps with the little stuff. Oddly enough all that little stuff adds up and once you let go of the anger over all that little stuff, its like a giant weight off your shoulders. Like you got rid of a huge problem, but really you just let go of the little ones. It really can make a big difference in your daily life. So, the next time you find yourself getting upset over something, ask yourself if it will matter in five years.

Dear Customers

Dear Customers,

Obviously, this is not aimed at every single customer in the world or even on the grid. However, it is aimed at enough people that I took it upon myself to use a blog post for the article. I’m not going to bitch at you or try to insult you, because customers are wonderful. Yet, there seems to a few things in Second Life that most customers seemed to be a bit confused about, so I’m going to try and help both the customer, as well as the designer, with a few helpful tips.

  1. Contacting the designer for any reason. First thing I recommend is looking at the designer’s profile. Most designers have specific instructions for common issues and a list of contacts for the fastest response. Follow those instructions. I promise, they’re there for a reason.
  2. Keep it Simple. Whatever the directions say to do…do it. Don’t go over the stop with long drawn out explanations. Designers are smart, they know what keywords mean. So, instead of explaining why you made a double purchase, just stated: Double purchase….and whatever else the designer needs from you.
  3. Transaction History. People, please, learn what this is…it is your friend and can save you so much frustration down the road. It surprises me how many people don’t know how to do this. You go to SecondLife.com  and log in. On the left, there’s a drop down menu for Account, then a clear and precise option for Transaction History. This will open up a variety of options with your most recent transactions listed, along with other pertinent information. Copy & paste what you need.
  4. Be polite & patient. Chances are if you’re having an issue with the fit or not receiving your item, other people might be, too. The designer might be dealing with complaints as quickly as possible. Being nasty and rushing the designer is not going to encourage them to help you any faster.
  5. Designers are human, too. Please remember that just like you, designers are people with lives in RL and some even manage to have one in SL. However, they are very busy and deserve some time off without having to hide on an alt. Being courteous takes you a long way.
  6. Profiles are important. Please read designer profiles, customer service profiles, etc. Make sure you are contacting the correct person and it might not hurt to double check what your sending to make sure its got all the right info.
  7. Legacy names matter! I personally like to sign my notecards with a copy of my calling card. Just type your name into your inventory search and you’ll find yours. This makes it easier for the designer to find you. However, if for some reason a calling card is too difficult for you…-_-…please copy your legacy name, not your display name. You cannot be searched by display name and it is not the designer’s job to play detective to figure out who sent them what.

That’s it for now, my lovelies. However, my regular readers know I love doing these “Dear _______” posts. So, there you have it, the first directed at customers. Happy Shopping!
