Summer Lovin

You saw the title and thought it was going to be a music post with that song from Grease, didn’t you? And now that song is stuck in your head, too, huh? *giggles* You’re welcome! I did think about doing that, but decided to just mess with y’all instead. Is there any point linking that song of all songs or the lyrics? Event he most macho of men knows that movie and every song in it, I don’t care what they try to say. They’ve had a mom, sister, or girlfriend that made them watch it at least once or a thousand times.
Nope there’s no deep message, rant or short story with this post. Just a picture of Josh and I looking into each other’s loving eyes the way we wish we could in RL. Alas, a real life together is not in our cards. So, we bring our real love into a virtual world and make our friends gag…*gets out a bucket for Tracy* and y’all can blame Drunk Panda for the pose. Meanwhile, I thank both Johanna and Michael for allowing us the opportunity to take such a photo. G’on out there and make the most of your Second Life, whether its romance, creating, blogging, exploring, role playing….or any other numerous SL activities. Be sure to grab a humping gesture from somewhere and hump all your friends…after all…it IS hump day!♥

Reimagined

Its another song post, but I’m hoping you’ll kinda feel the connection between the picture and the music. I’m a little obsessed with this band at the moment and if you’re not familiar with them…well, check them out. So, as always I’m providing a YouTube link and the lyrics. You also have the option of scrolling on down to the credits, because hands down this dress is a must have and believe me, you really want to fork out the extra lindens for the fatpack on this one, cuz the Cynful team has gone above and beyond with this Subdub Dress!

The Contortionist Reimagined

When I found the point of life
It came creeping towards me
In the shape of eyes

It was all this reimagined
It was a different kind of speak
It was repitition
It was what you want it to be

When I saw the shape of sound
Everything came spiralling

It was all this reimagined
It was a different kind of speak
It was repitition
It was what you want it to be

Breathe
Breathe in
Once you found the breath you lost you’ll breathe again

Breathe
Breathe in
Once you found the breath you lost you’ll breathe again

It was all this reimagined
It was a different kind of speak
It was repitition

And I am exactly what you imagine me to be

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 special reunion. They had no desire for class reunions and alumni parties. These were the special people that had kept in touch. Sure, most of it was on Facebook or over the phone…a few even used email, but this was going to be a party day. She had the best wines, cheeses, sandwiches, lemonade, fresh bread, and plenty of blankets and pillows for people to pair off to have private conversations if they wanted.

the picnic

As she lied there reading her book, she began to wonder if she had forgotten anything. Oh dear, did she have the right date? She quickly pulled out her phone and confirmed the date. Whew, that would have been a mess! She was so nervous….what if HE showed up? What if he didn’t? What if he brought a date? Why did she sign up for this? What was she thinking?
She poured herself a glass of wine and decided it was too late now, just drink and relax. Its just a picnic in the park. Yes, it would be a fun day and if no one showed up, well, she’d just invited strangers to partake and she’d make new friends. Yes, that’s what she’d do….and she’d have another glass of wine.
Eventually her friends did show up. HE showed up…without a date or a wedding ring.

A Bit of Real Talk

Alright, its been a while since I did one of these, but I’m going to take a minute and get real with some of y’all. If you’re one of my best friends, you can skip this read, cuz you’ve heard it and agreed before. So, lets just dive right in while I’m in the mood. I’m pretty active on Facebook and while I don’t necessarily comment on most of the crap I see, I do try to like the things my close friends post and occasionally random things that make me chuckle or raise my atheist little hands in an amen!
Today we’re talking about designers. Nope, I’m not going to bitch about them, there’s plenty of y’all doing that all over Facebook. I’m here to defend them. As a blogger, blog manager, and working for events, I’ve gotten to know quite a few designers and I’ve been blessed to get really close to a few. Here’s what shoppers need to know. They set their own prices and they have a reason for whatever price they set. So, if you dare to accost a designer and suggest their prices are too high and that you’re doing them a favor by suggesting a lower price, you need to check yourself. You have absolutely no idea the amount of time and energy and money they spend to bring their creations to the grid. They don’t just sign in, wave a magic wand, and provide you with gorgeous creations. If their prices are too high? Well, BooBoo, no one is forcing you to shop there, are they?
Oh, I’m not done! If you have an issue with something you buy…its got a glitch, it doesn’t fit right…don’t you dare IM the designer and attack them. Take the time to think how you would want to be approached. Trust me, what you’re wearing and how it fits is NOT an emergency and you will survive until the situation is sorted. So, just take a minute and breathe, maybe type it up in a notecard and have a friend give it a read to make sure you don’t come off sounding like a little bitch, because c’mon…these designers aren’t major corporations with warehouses and thousands of employees. You’re not talking to some random person in a call center that might not give a shit about your complaint. Even if you’re having to go through a CSR vs the designer themselves, treat them with the same respect you want shown to you as a customer. Its not nearly as hard to be polite as some of you make it out to be. Here’s a suggestion, start your note with a compliment and end it with one, too. Remind that designer why you bought their item in the first place…uhm, you liked it and had to have it, right? Sometimes you will be disappointed, but if you didn’t try a demo first, that’s on you, Boo!
Just be nice, okay? Cuz these designers work hard and if you’re seeing them in events, you can bet your ass they are dealing with all sorts of deadlines and rules that they didn’t set for themselves. Oh and stop using those huds to get into events, did you know they actually cause drastic lag to the land where the event is located? Its dreadful. C’mon, you can do it the old fashioned way or simply wait…oh and leave your pets and scripted babies at home, too!

Sleeping Beauty

He loved watching her sleep, the way her fingers danced as if she was playing an invisible piano…her breasts rising and falling with each breath. The soft coo of her slumbered breathing, not quite a snore, but she only made that adorable sound when she slept. He loved that she would fall asleep trying to wait up for him. He could watch her sleep forever, if he could just keep his hands to himself. Nah, he was definitely going to wake her up. *grins*

I am Fragile

Its another “lyrics say it better than me” post. I suppose some might call it lazy, but music lovers will surely appreciate that sometimes a song written by someone else can often speak from your own heart. Well, its that kind of day for me.

Fragile by Kerli

You think you know me
And everything that you consider me
You think you know my name
You think you know me
And everything you get a chance to see
You think you know my face
You think you know my face

You think you see me
And everything that you consider me
You think I’m more than you
You think you see me
You like the way I’m strong and stand by you
But I am fragile too
I am fragile too

Yeah I will be fine
As the time goes by
It may hurt at nights
But I will be fine
Yeah I will be fine

They think they know me
And everything that they consider me
They think I never cry
They are thinking
While they’re making up their twisted lies
She won’t mind, she’s nice
She is cold as ice

You think you see me
and everything that you consider me
You think I’m more than you
You think you see me
You like the way I’m strong and stand by you
But I am fragile too
I am fragile too

I am fragile too
I am fragile too
Just like you
