Life of the Party

As far back as I can remember, my mother has always set the most amazing tables for dinner parties and holiday gatherings. Needless to say, she’s always cooked far too much food. I’m not going to write a lot here, just that this entire scene is dedicated to my mom.

Dinner Table

My mother has always insisted that the room is actually the life of the party and decor plays a huge part in that.

The key to all of my mother’s dishes, fancy dinner or not, is presentation.

And no matter what, even when she’s lived completely alone, Christmas time requires decorations. It’s the law!

Vacation Conundrum

She’d been thinking about it quite a bit and had decided for their anniversary trip, she’d wanted to go on a ski trip. She’d even gone out and bought an entire ski suit, complete with mask. When she told him about it at breakfast the next morning, he chuckled as he slid two tickets to Egypt across the table, “I was going to take you to see the great pyramids, one of the eight wonders of the world.”
She looked at him sideways, “I thought there were only  seven wonders of the world.”
He looked at her lovingly, “There were until the day you were born.”
She laughed, “Sweet talk isn’t going to get you out of this ski trip.”
He grinned as he passed her the hotel pamphlet with a pair of diamond earring, “Well, unless you plan on skiing down the pyramids, this will be the only ice you’ll see this year.”
She giggled as she puts the earrings on, “Yes, Sir! Egypt it is!”

I’m only happy when it rains”

She Knew

She sneered as descended the stairs and saw him whispering into his phone. She knew he was whispering to his whore, scolding her for calling him when she knew damn well he was at home. She wanted to rip the phone from his hands and scream at both of them. The truth of the matter was, she didn’t care that he had found someone else to accept his pathetic three minutes of sweaty grunting. She was disgusted by his cowardice and her disrespect. She had done her homework and knew exactly who he was fucking. She knew that his whore was betraying her partner as well. She relished the idea that the one of them would deliver the karma due to both of them.
As he hung up the phone and turned to see her coming down the stairs, he stared at her like a deer in the headlights. She smiled knowingly at him and asked the question that she knew would make him squirm, “Who was on the phone, Darling?”

Christmas Cooties

I’m setting up this scene, when my mom happens by and looks over my shoulder, “That’s interesting. Those balls would make pretty ornaments.”

“They are ornaments, but I’m not ready to do Christmas themed pictures yet,” I mumble.

“Why is she wearing a mask?”

“She doesn’t want to catch Christmas Cooties!”

She rolls her eyes as she walks out of my room, “You need Jesus.”

Every Leaf is a Flower

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” ~Albert Camus

I love the changing of the leaves in fall. I live in a condo that has a lovely entrance and the avenue that comes down into our neighborhood is lined with the most colorful trees. Every fall, we are blessed with brilliant reds, bright golds, bold oranges…and not just on the trees, but on the ground and whisking around the cars as we generate a gentle wind. The crisp air tingles exposed flesh just enough to make you appreciate your sweater. As the world shifts from greens to the warmest of earth tones, we see the shift of decor in homes, yards, and stores. It makes me crave hot chocolate and caramel apples. I love how creative people get with their pumpkins, too. Reserving them for Autumn rather than mutilating them to make some jagged scene or face for Halloween. This is the coziest of all the seasons to me and though the shift in weather causes me to ache and hurt more physically than usual, I could never hate it.

Find the light

This entire song has been one of those songs that I’ve related closely to from the very first time I heard it. There’s a weird sense of comfort in surrendering myself to the pain accompanied by lyrics. I didn’t list all of the lyrics, just the first punch. This is one of those songs that just…well…give it a listen sometime and if you really hate the melody, maybe just google the lyrics and read them over. *shrugs* Do what you want, I know I do. *forces a smile*
“Yesterday was the tornado warning, today is like the morning after
Your world is torn in half, you wake and let’s wait to start the morning process
Rebuilding and you’re still a work in progress
Today is a whole new chapter, it’s like an enormous ass
The thunderstorm has passed ya
Your weather didn’t poke his eyes out with the thorn bush that you
Used to smell the roses, stopped to inhale can’t even tell your nose is stuffed
So focused on the brightside, then you floor the gas pedal
And hit the corner fast, the more asserted
Never looking back, may hit the curb
But everyday is a new learning curve, as you, steer through life
Sometimes you might not wanna swerve
But you have to to avert a disaster, lucky, no permanent damage
Cause they hurt you so bad, it’s like they murdered your ass
And threw dirt on your casket, but you returned from the ashes
And that hurt that you have, you just converted to gasoline
And while you’re burning the past, standing at inferno and chant
I’m standing in the flames
It’s a beautiful kind of pain
Setting fire to yesterday
Find the light, find the light, find the light”

I Don’t Exist

I know I said I’d try not to do the lyrics thing and I’ve done well not to, but I’m dealing with some stuff in the real world right now that I’m not sure I even want to write about or share with the general public…so, the lyrics will speak for me today.

Olivia O’Brien – I Don’t Exist

I’ve been doomed from the start
Everything around me falls apart
So quickly always end up with a broken heart
Even Tylenol can’t fix me
Unless it’s mixed with whiskey

I ain’t even sad, I’m just bored
Nothing can excite me anymore like you used to
Hollywood has lost all its allure
Used to be so pretty
Now it’s just a city

All of these people and all of their friends
Look so good together and I don’t fit in
‘Cause they’re picture perfect
And I’m on the end
Crop me out the photo so they can pretend
Like I don’t exist
Like I don’t exist
Don’t exist
Like I don’t exist (no)
Like I don’t exist
No

When I feel good it never lasts
That’s why you can find me living in a past if you need me
Everybody says this shit will pass
I say it won’t, they don’t believe me
Just tell me to deep breathe

Falling apart
Don’t know what to do, what to do
Looking for someone to save me, I don’t know who
I don’t know who

All of these people and all of their friends
Look so good together and I don’t fit in
‘Cause they’re picture perfect
And I’m on the end
Crop me out the photo so they can pretend
Like I don’t exist
Like I don’t exist
Don’t exist
Like I don’t exist (no)
Like I don’t exist
No

Am I even real?
Am I even real?
Am I even real?
Am I even real?
Am I even real?
Am I even real?
It’s hard to tell when I can’t feel a fucking thing

All of these people and all of their friends
Look so good together and I don’t fit in
‘Cause they’re picture perfect
And I’m on the end
Crop me out the photo so they can pretend
Like I don’t exist (no)
Like I don’t exist
Don’t exist
Like I don’t exist (no)
Like I don’t exist
No

Am I even real?

Cat Herder

“It checks you in and kicks you down,
And chews you up and spits you out.
It messes with your sanity by twisting all your thoughts around.
They say it’s blind they say it waits but every time it seals your fate.
And now it’s got you by the balls it won’t let go until you fall.
I was down and out, got up I said “Hey love I’ve had enough!”
I’ve felt pleasure without pain.
My soul you’ll never tame!
Love bites, but so do I.”
Halestorm – Love Bites (So Do I)
I think this is the longest I’ve ever been single in Second Life, aside from when I was married in RL. I’ve dated a bit here and there, but nothing has stuck for more than a week. God forbid I have a life aside from sitting around waiting for someone to complete me. The last two men I’ve dated felt that me not answering within a 30-120 second window was disrespectful. Well, I got news for ya, fellas. I have a life. I’m complete all by myself and while I am naturally submissive, I will NOT roll over and play dead just because you’re online. I’ve been in Second Life for 12 years. I’ve made a few friends. I’ve got a few jobs. I have a lot of interests AND I chase squirrels/shinies. Apparently, that’s too much for some people.
I do know that it can be annoying, but most people either get it and embrace it or they move on. I play Guild Wars 2 with one of my best friends and he has told me that he feels like he’s herding cats when he plays with me. *laughs* I’m always running off in the wrong direction to look at something new or chasing materials for crafting. See? He embraces my inner cat and so do my other close friends. I do know it can be aggravating, because believe it or not, one of my friends is worse than me. I won’t call any names today, but if she’s not paying attention I know she’s been captured Facebook.
So, despite being very lonely at times, especially with the holiday season quickly approaching…I’m just going to enjoy myself with whoever I want, whenever I want. Anyone that has an issue with that can file a report with my keeper. Oh, wait, that’s right, I don’t have one. *giggles* That’s right, I do what I want! Remember that.
I wish you a day filled with love & laughter. ♥
