Swiping

It’s no secret that I’m going through a tacky, drawn out divorce in real life. Sometimes I think about dating again. I used to love dating in real life. Oh but things were different then. Now its all about dating apps. Swipe left, swipe right. As I thought about this, it occurred to me how funny it is that we’re supposed to “swipe” anything. I mean the definitions of swipe are hit or try to hit with a swinging blow, steal, a sweeping blow, and now…an act or instance of moving one’s finger across a touchscreen to activate a function. So, are literally trying hit that now? Don’t get me started on a swinging or sweeping blow…THAT’s now how you blow….ooh, they mean the other kind of blow. Even still! Well, I refuse. Surely the elderly are getting too arthritic to be swiping all that much. Plus most of those apps are all about the hook up, right? I don’t think too many elderly people are going to be DTF. I guess that’s what senior centers are for, huh? Well, I won’t be going there when I got older either. Guess, I’ll be the crazy old cat lady. #LifeGoals

Lady Licorice

The moment I saw this corset, I knew it was a must have simply for the shape and details. Then I got the hud and was able to play with the details even more. As I played with the color options, I came up with this color combination and immediately thought of these Good & Plenty candies that I always wanted as a kid. Problem was, I only wanted them cuz they looked so pretty. You see, they were actually licorice and I hate licorice! So, I’d get them, put one in my mouth, then spit and spew like a little maniac. Don’t worry, Tracy, the candy didn’t go to waste. My father loved licorice. *laughs* Oddly enough, I kinda feel like that candy in Second Life. The occasional man will approach me, but when they find out that I’m not just going to spread my legs for them…they keep on truckin. Which is fine. I’m clearly an acquired taste, just like Lady Licorice here. *winks*

Paint it Black

“I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a new born baby it just happens ev’ry day
I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door I must have it painted black
Maybe then I’ll fade away and not have to face the facts
It’s not easy facin’ up, when your whole world is black”

Love IS Blind

How many red flags do we ignore, because we THINK we’re in love? For whatever reason, we’ve set out sights on that person. Suddenly, all the signs that will be so crystal clear to us in the future are excusable.
There were so many signs when I first met my ex husband. He lied. Repeatedly. He lied about his job and I decided that he was just embarrassed by his actual position. He thought it would be more impressive if he had the same job as his friend that brought him into Second Life. I thought it was cute that he was worried about what I’d think. *rolls her eyes at herself* He lied about his living situation. He lived at home with his mother, but he told me he lived with a roommate. Again, I excused it as cute that he was worried about what I thought. That’s two lies before we even met in person. *sighs* He lied about sending me a package in the mail. Turns out, there never was a package. *hangs her head* I racked that up as a stupid lie, but no biggie. Just one of those lies should have been enough to turn my ass around and go the other direction.
He lied about several other things and yet…my dumbass still married him. Look where that got me! Now I’m not even sure he ever loved me. I think I was just an escape from a life he hated. *shrugs* It is what it is, but you can be damn sure I won’t be falling for that trap again!

Fade Into You

“I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take the breath that’s true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth
You live your life, you go in shadows
You’ll come apart and you’ll go black
Some kind of night into your darkness
Colors your eyes with what’s not there
Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it’s strange you never knew
A stranger’s light comes on slowly
A stranger’s heart without a home
You put your hands into your head
And then smiles cover your heart
Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it’s strange you never knew”

Fancy Living

“I was barely in grade school when I helped my mother rearrange the living room furniture for the first time.” ~ Nate Berkus

We moved every two or three years, but our living rooms were rearranged at least three or four times a year. Why? Because my mother is crazy and always has been? I could write a book about all the different living room styles we had over the years. From peacock tapestries to bright orange walls. Oh yeah, she painted and wall papered, too. Living rooms were an easy target, but she had her sites set on the bathrooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms, as well. So, its no wonder that I have so much fun with decor in Second Life. It takes me longer to put together a scene and certainly longer to list the credits with links and tags. However, I tried to let it go once before and it broke my heart.

The Timeline

I’ve decided to write about this here rather than Facebook, for the simple reason that I don’t want 100 notifications about silly comments & arguments. All of that is welcome here, but my computer won’t ding every time someone does it here…lol. So, here’s the tea:

Every so often I come across these posts where someone is complaining about all the negativity and drama on their timeline. Quite regularly these posts are accompanied by requests or challenges to post something positive. I always wonder who these people are friends with on Facebook and why they continue to follow such Debbie Downers? I’ll be honest, the posts complaining about other posts are usually the most negative things I see. Not to mention that on the rare occasion that I do come across something negative, its usually those people fussing about someone else. So, I wonder if we run in completely different circles or they’re completely missing someone’s sense of humor. Perhaps they’re overly sensitive or fail to realize they have the power to unfollow negative people. Or maybe they forgot that on Facebook, we can post whatever we want (except nudes, cuz God forbid)…and if someone doesn’t like it…well, let’s loop back around to that unfollow option. I don’t know if I’m the only one that experiences this, but it seems to pop up at least once a week for me.
With that said, I’ll tell you what I see on my timeline almost daily. I see lots and lots of gorgeous photos done by bloggers from across the grid. I see ads from amazing designers and I see jokes from all walks of life. I don’t know exactly when memes became a thing, but I sure do enjoy them. So, here’s what I suggest: If you find your timeline to be full of negativity, then unfollow those people and make room for the fun stuff, cuz there’s plenty of it out there without you having to ask or challenge people from your status. All that does is make you look like one of the negative nancies…and I’m going to assume that you don’t want that.

Would you?

Would you knowingly eat food that you knew was going to make you sick? I think its safe to say that most of us would not. So, why are we so quick to surround ourselves with poisonous people? Why are we so slow to escape unhealthy relationships? Neither are good for our soul and they prevent us from finding joy and true happiness. Why do we waste so much energy and time on such things? We all need to stop with the stupid shit, like arguing over things that aren’t going to matter next month, much less five  years from now. The sooner we all let go of the toxic crap in our lives, the sooner we’ll all discover that we are capable of enjoying a better life. I’ll be over here enjoying my virtual churros pretending they are good for me, while you mull that over.

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!♥
