Eavesdropping

“There’s nothing like eavesdropping to show you that the world outside your head is different from the world inside your head.” – Thornton Wilder

Oh Deer

When I was putting this scene together, I couldn’t help but get lost as I was thrown down memory lane. Earlier this year, I lost my aunt. I shouldn’t say I lost her, because to be honest, I didn’t really like her. My mom lost her sister. My mom was and still is quite heartbroken. While I didn’t like my aunt very much, there were things I liked about her. I loved visiting her for a few days at a time, because she lived on a mountain in the hills of West Virginia. I know, I know, but seriously, its a beautiful state, especially in the fall when the leaves are so vibrant. I loved being so enveloped in mother nature. There were deer that would come into her yard every night as the sun was going down and you never knew when you’d see a bear lurking about looking for apples. My aunt was especially gullible and I even had her hunting ghost orbs in the Catholic cemetery at the bottom of the mountain once. *laughs* Her home was rustic and so far removed from modern society to include dial up internet as it was all she could get where she lived.
I didn’t agree with her views on life, religion, or politics. I didn’t think she was a very nice person, but there we managed to share some funny moments. Like the time we mouthed words to each other and made my mother think she was going deaf. She fought hard the last few years of her life and finally couldn’t fight anymore. I understood that and I admired her decision to tell her family she was done fighting. To say goodbye and let her go. I know that took a lot of courage for her, considering how close she was to her children and how much she loved her husband. I dedicate this post to her, even though she has never approved of me, my lifestyle, my beliefs, etc. *laughs*

Be True to You

“You got to be true
True to yourself
Or you’ll be a fool
To somebody else”
-Yelawolf – “True to Yourself” ft. Bones Owens

I’m just quoting the song today. I’m not going to feed you all the lyrics, because this is not really a song post. Though I do love the newest from Yelawolf, I want to talk about being true to yourself. No matter how old you are, its important to be true to yourself and who you are…who you want to be…what you want from your life. It might be too late for some things, but its never too late for everything. The younger you are the fewer excuses you should have…look at people that move to another country with hardly any money to their names and make something of themselves without help from the government. If they can do, so can you! Seriously, no matter what your passion is, never stop. If you love to paint, then paint. If you can’t afford classes, its okay, paint anyway. Paint because you love it, not because you’re a professional. If you love to sing, but no one wants to hear you sing? That’s ok, sing in your car, your shower, sing your heart out. No one can stop you from that. If you can improve upon your passion, then do it. Be the best at whatever you love as you can. I urge those in their 20s to please listen and don’t let you life get away from you. You think there’s plenty of time, but I promise you that time will escape you and before you know it, you’ll be 40 and wondering what happened to your dreams. Be your own best friend and push yourself forward. Be true to you!

Be You

Extra! Extra!

Once upon a time, kids would stand on street corners selling newspapers while yelling, “EXTRA! EXTRA! Read all about it!” They might even go so far as to toss out the title of the story on the front page. These days we get our news from a variety of electronic devices. So, I figured my best bet was to sit pretty on the ATM machine…that should get your attention, right?
Its Friday and I think most of us are feeling pretty good about that! There’s been lots of events just waiting for us to get paid. There’s an endless array of retail therapy, so no matter how bad your week has been, relief is in sight! Its also the weekend that Cosmo switches things up, so if you want to grab this cute little number from Scandalize go on over and grab it tonight. It might be a few days before it makes it to the mainstore. In the meanwhile, you can hit up Kustom9 for that beautiful variety they continue to deliver. Bueno has surprised us with a diverse set of backdrops and phones!
I hope you all have a great weekend and Happy Shopping!♥

Hungover

So, Friday was my birthday and on Thursday night, Cynthia of Cynful presented me with the jeans you see in this post. Officially my new favorites, not just because I’ll never forget the name of them, but because they fit like a glove. I love these jeans so much! I can’t imagine that every thoughtful detail in these jeans was about me, but I certainly do appreciate every detail. The stitching, the ASS…omg, Josh’s response to my jeans was, “I want Cynthia to make my ass look THAT good!” To which I quickly replied, “SHE’S MINE AND YOU CAN’T HAVE HER!” *giggles* I will however generously share her with the rest of the ladies on the grid…you’re welcome. Ok, real quick about the details again…not only did she do her standard Belleza-Hourglass-Maitreya sizes, but she was thoughtful enough to create two fits for flat feet and heels.  As I recently acquired some adorable toe rings (not pictured) from Astralia…I’ve been running around barefoot all weekend.
Ok, so I had a full two day hangover! Listen, I have a problem, okay? I love tequila and it loves me…well, it used to. I think we broke up this weekend. Tequila is an abusive lover….*nods*…just seduces me over and over until before I know it, I’ve consumed an entire 750ml bottle of 1800 Gold. *hangs her head* I know, I know….I should be dead. A skype call did happen, but not like my old ones where I’d call everyone on my damn list…lol. This time I had Tracy and Grace watching out for me, trying their best to keep me in check. I still managed to say some pretty embarrassing things, luckily the company I keep these days is pretty good and I’m not too worried about being judged or them running about blabbing about my drunken rhetoric. God bless, Dusty, Joe, Tracy, and Grace for having to hear me puke my guts out…even though every time I could take a breath between heaves I’d call out, “I’m okay….” and “I’m sorrry.” To which I could hear them laughing, as I’m sure they found it quite humorous that I was worried about them having to listen to me puke. I’m pretty sure at one point I passed out briefly as I was informed later that I was basically afk for about 45 mins.  Needless to say, Saturday when I woke up I still felt drunk and very sluggish. While sober by Sunday, my mind was still a ball of fuzz. Monday is here now and I’m feeling back to my normal oddball sober self. Whew! I honestly don’t think my ass will be getting drunk ever…okay, for a very long time. *nods seriously*

I had a fantastic birthday and I am so grateful to all of my amazing and wonderful friends that found time to celebrate with me and to those that were quite sad that they weren’t able to make it. I am truly blessed with some of the most amazing friends on the grid. Never thought I could say that about so many people in SL and actually mean it. ♥

sweet dreams
Just kill me now, while I’m all cute in my new jeans.

Secret

One of my all time songs and when I was doing this picture I couldn’t help but play it on repeat. I knew from the jump that this would be a music post. So, here’s the link and lyrics. *smiles* Oh and I know most people know this song from that TV Show Pretty Little Liars, but I’ve never seen it…so check out more songs by these two gorgeous sisters, because they are amazing!

Secret by The Pierces

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you’ll save
Better lock it, in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you
Won’t tell what I said
‘Cause two can keep a secret
If one of them is dead?

Why do you smile
Like you have told a secret
Now you’re telling lies
‘Cause you’re the one to keep it
But no one keeps a secret
No one keeps a secret
Why when we do our darkest deeds
Do we tell?
They burn in our brains
Become a living hell
‘Cause everyone tells
Everyone tells?

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you’ll save
Better lock it, in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you
Won’t tell what I said
‘Cause two can keep a secret
If one of them is dead?

Look into my eyes
Now you’re getting sleepy
Are you hypnotized
By secrets that you’re keeping?
I know what you’re keeping
I know what you’re keeping

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you’ll save
Better lock it, in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you
Won’t tell what I said
‘Cause two can keep a secret
If one of them is dead?

Alison?
Yes, Katherine.
I have something I want to tell you, but
You have to promise to never tell anyone.
I promise
Do you swear on your life?
I swear on my life

You swore you’d never tell?
You swore you’d never tell?

You swore you’d never tell?
You swore you’d never tell?

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you’ll save
Better lock it, in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you
Won’t tell what I said
‘Cause two can keep a secret
If one of them is dead?

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you’ll save
Better lock it, in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave

Yes two can keep a secret
If one of us is Dead

Take a Backseat

Ya know, anyone with a Facebook account whether its RL or SL sees far more than their share of drama, add the aspect of life on the grid and its going to be ten times worse, but here’s the thing. If you don’t want to be caught up in it, then stay out of it. Sure, you can grab some popcorn and watch it all unfold like a bad episode of some Real Housewives of Hell, but don’t you have better things to do with your time? I know I do. Sure, I’ve read stuff on friend’s walls and wondered who is that about….and I’ve had people come running to me with gossip, but do you see me running off at the mouth to anyone outside of the cunts (Kess, Tracy, & Grace)? No, you don’t. You also don’t see the four of us mixed up in everyone’s drama. Sure, we’ve each had a bit of our own here and there, but the more power you give rumors and lies, the stronger they become…the bigger the story gets…the more people get involved. Look, if someone calls you a whore and you’re insulted by it…well, you’re being silly. Either you are a whore or you’re not. If you are, why you mad? They didn’t lie. If you’re not a whore, then why you mad? You gonna be mad if they call you a chair? Are you a chair? Right. So, take a backseat, let the drama llamas drive…and enjoy the scenery and the ride. Let someone else navigate through all that bullshit.

**BTW, before y’all get started…this is not aimed at anyone in particular, its just another day in the second life.**

Chickens Can’t Read, Right?

Her sister and her chickens. She couldn’t believe that her nephew couldn’t spell “chicken” or “for.” She sighed and leaned against the chicken coop. Her sister was going to owe her one helluva a favor for this. She felt like a dumb hick waiting to sell chickens or fresh eggs to people that just drive up. There wasn’t even a decent signal to amuse herself with her phone. She thought about the Angry Birds game and chuckled to herself as she wondered how far she could throw a chicken. It was just then she noticed that two of the chickens seemed to be looking at the sign as if they were reading it. She laughed to herself, “Chicken can’t read, right?”

STRRRIIKE!!

She knew she couldn’t bowl. She’d never been good at sports. So, in the name of brats everywhere, she ran down the aisle with the ball, dropped to her knees and slid into the pins. She could hear the gasps behind her. She didn’t care, instead, she just turned around and yelled, “STRRRIIKE!!” Everyone laughed until management came over and asked them to leave.
