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…

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…

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…

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….

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…

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…

Setting Off Alarms

Time for some more real talk. This time, I’m talking about profiles, the kinds of profiles that should set off alarms. You ready? Let’s get it started! Going to just list off some common things I see around the grid that should set off alarms based on my almost 11yrs on the grid. 1. Profiles…

Picnic Party

She had arrived at the park early to set up the annual picnic for her college friends. She had set everything up just right and was just lazing about watching nature and reading. She could hardly concentrate as she was so excited. She hadn’t seen some of them in ages and this was their own…

She’s Like the Wind

Since the designer of this dress is a singer and the picture keeps planting an earworm in my head…I’m going to do the music things…YouTube link and lyrics provided, of course! For the funhaters, you can just scroll on down to the deets to go shopping! *giggles* Patrick Swayze She’s Like the Wind She’s like…

You Lookin’ At Me Lookin’ At You

I took a step away from writing about myself and have been writing more fictional tidbits and short short stories to accompany my photos. I have to admit it has been a lot of fun. However, there will be times like now, that a song just fits how I feel about the picture more than…

Keep Your Head Up

I spend an inordinate amount of time in Second Life and there’s still not enough time to do everything I want to do, to see everything I want to see, to talk to everyone I want to talk to….so whenever I hear someone in Second Life say they’re bored…well, first I want to slap them….

Unlike Any Other

I was thinking about the mushy post I wrote the other day and how I said his love is unlike any I’ve ever known. I got to thinking about how often people say that about current relationships. I thought about how overused the phrase is and quite honestly, I got annoyed with myself for using…
