Dear Bloggers…pt 2

Dear Bloggers,

Please stop treating what we do as a competition. It’s not a sport. There’s room for everyone.
Stop stabbing other bloggers in the back or trying to throw them under the bus. It rarely works out the way you hope it does and in the end, karma finds it’s way back to you.
Remember that none of us are perfect. Learn to forgive one another for misunderstandings and work together as a community.
Don’t bad mouth each other in front of their best friends.
Remember who helped you when you first started, know that as much as you run your mouths, so do the people you run and talk to.
Don’t bash a brand or even hint at bashing a brand in a public forum. You’re only making yourself look bad and you’re burning more than one bridge when you do that.
Stop taking everything so personally. The world doesn’t revolve around you.
Don’t be afraid to try new things.
There’s no need to suck up to designers and lie to them about the people that work for them. Designers are not idiots and you can damn well bet they know what they’re doing and who is who on their teams.
Accept feedback for what it is, constructive criticism, remember that it’s not your brand.
And last but not least, if YOU think this post is aimed at you….well, you might want to think about why you think that and just for the record, this isn’t actually aimed at one person specifically. This is just a list of what I thought was common sense behaviors, but apparently isn’t. Not sure why I bother doing these little schpeils, but I suppose I hope its going to make a difference. *shrugs* If you found anything useful, take it and use it. If not, leave it here and forget it. I really just want people to stop wasting their precious time on hate and negativity. So…happy shopping…happy blogging…happy living. ❤

Take Your Time

Why is everyone in such a hurry these days? I’m referring to SL relationships. We’ve all seen the people that jump in and out of relationships. Partnered to someone new every other week or month, then complain about why their relationships didn’t work. Seems like an awful lot of unnecessary drama and hurt feelings to me. I used to think I had a four month expiration date, because my average SL relationship was only lasting four months, but I didn’t rush into any of them. The last one I had, we dated quietly for months before telling anyone, much less becoming official. Now, I’ve been single for over 3 months and I simply can’t imagine rushing into anything with any of the men I’ve met. It can take weeks for me to even figure out whether or not I want to have sex with someone. Granted there are those that you know immediately that sex is definitely on the table, but in those instances I’m not expecting it to be anything but casual. I’m not an idiot. Sex does not equal love or even slove as my friend, Poppy, puts it. (I tend to agree with her on that.) I dunno, I guess we all have our pace. It just seems to me if you take your time and really get to know someone first, you might save yourself some heartache. Then again, what do I know….368 day of what I thought was magic turned out to be really disposable and I was easily replaced in no time at all. *shrugs* So, I have no idea who the hell I think I am giving relationship advice, but that’s what’s on my mind today. So, that’s what you get.

Lost in Memories

Sometimes I wake up and forget my world has changed. I forget that I sleep alone while he sleeps in the other room. I have to remind myself not to reach for him, that I curl up to pillows and blankets now. It’s been two years, but I still miss the struggle of not keeping him awake with my restless body. I no longer have to be quiet or careful when getting up in the middle of the night to pee. You’d think I’d be used to it by now, but no.
I drag my house out of bed and pull myself together. I find distractions to get me through another day. I really thought we were would last forever. I believed he was the one that would never leave. I have yet to let go of the hope that this is just a nightmare. That I’ll wake from this dream to find him next to me again. I don’t really want to let him go.
I try to find his faults. I recite all the things he does that annoy me and I know I will miss them when he’s gone. From time to time, I remind him that I love him…that I’m willing to fight. He reminds me that he has given up and my heart breaks a little more each time. Our vows meant everything to me and nothing to him. I’m left alone to get lost in memories.

In Between

Kelsea Ballerini – In Between

In between just a flame and a ring
In between an apartment and a frontporch swing
In between cheap and fancy a guitar and a Grammy
In between reckless and responsibility
Sometimes I’m my mother’s daughter, sometimes I’m her friend
Sometimes I play grown up and sometimes I play pretend
Sometimes I’m a princess dressed all ribbons and all curls
And sometimes I just wanna scream “I’m not a little girl!“
Dumb enough to think I know it all
Smart enough to know I don’t
Young enough to think I’ll live forever
Old enough to know I won’t
In between
In between beer and basement
And Napa Valley vacation
In between hometown and a neon city
In between underestimated and overexpectated
Who I was and who I’m gonna be
Sometimes I’m my mother’s daughter, sometimes I’m her friend
Sometimes I play grown up and sometimes I play pretend
Sometimes I’m a princess dressed all ribbons and all curls
And sometimes I just wanna scream, “I’m not a little girl“
Dumb enough to think I know it all
Smart enough to know I don’t
Young enough to think I’ll live forever
Old enough to know I won’t
I know I won’t
I’m half head up in the clouds, half feet down on the ground
‘Cause it ain’t that simple
As an adult sittin’ on that page when they say, “Act your age“
But you’re stuck there in the middle
Sometimes I’m my mother’s daughter, sometimes I’m her friend
Sometimes I play grown up and sometimes I play pretend
Sometimes I’m a princess dressed all ribbons and all curls
And sometimes I just wanna scream “I’m not a little girl!“
Dumb enough to think I know it all
Smart enough to know I don’t
Young enough to think I’ll live forever
Old enough to know I won’t
In the in between
Yeah
In the in between
hey sweetpea it’s mama
Just wanna let you know that I love you
Thinkin’ about you, missin’ you while I’m on the road
Can’t wait to see you when I get back

He Smiled

He was a loner. He kept to himself and lived a minimal life. His only relationship was with the old woman at the Quick Shop on the edge of town, where he bought beer and supplies. He didn’t really celebrate holidays, but every year that sweet old woman would give him a box lovingly wrapped with an ornament attached. Inside the box was always the same, a dozen pair of colorful socks. It was the one time a year he smiled.

Come Back When We Open

She had come in early to do some rehearsing. Just as she sat down to text her room mate about tonight’s show, she saw him in the doorway, “Come back when we open, unless you just want a drink. The bar out front is open, but its dancers only back here for now.”
He just smiled and nodded, but didn’t turn around. She gave him a curious glance as he was quite handsome and not the type she usually saw in the club. Leaning back, she crossed her long lean legs and bit her lip as she watched him watching her.
“You like what you see, Mister?” she cooed as she set her phone down to give him her undivided attention.
Again, he simply smiled and nodded. She really didn’t like games and decided she wasn’t going to play. She picked up her phone and pretended to text. Looking up she could see he was still standing there, “Look, Mister, really, just come back when we’re open if you want a show.” She went back to looking at her phone and sent the nonsense text to her room mate. She’d explain later. When she looked up again, he was gone. She smiled to herself while secretly hoping to see him again.

Let’s Go For a Swim

Part 3 of the Grace & Sady Road Trip

We got checked in to the motel after our long and very rough road trip. Flipped on the television that shows nothing but “adult movies” and washed up. Despite the advertised pool being an above ground pool that’s oddly placed ACROSS THE STREET…we threw on our bikinis, grabbed the vodka and headed for the “pool.”
“Hope this pool is clean and cold,” Grace sing songs as she skips across the road, looking over her shoulder, “Oh good, you got the vodka!”
“We’re going to need it after the day we’ve had. Just wish we’d thought to get some tequila!”
“Oh gawd, no, I can’t carry you back to the room if you get drunk on tequila, Sady!”
“Well, next stop we make I’m getting some, so you better figure it out!”
“Damnit, Sady, we’ll have to get some WiFi so you can flash Kess and Posh on skype again!”
We bursts into giggles and make our way up the ladder into the pool.

to the pool

We manage to climb into the bizarre motel pool. It was so refreshing and surprisingly clean. Out of nowhere, Grace pulls out a selfie stick, “Pose pretty with me!”
“Oh, gawd, Grace, with the motel behind us? Are you serious? And exactly where did you have that hidden?” I really did wonder where she had hidden that thing.
“Don’t you worry where I hid it…you just don’t want anyone to see that bandaid and dental floss thing you call a bikini!”
“Hey, no better way to avoid tan lines than to minimize the coverage! You saying the horizontal stripes make me look fat?” I laughed, because I knew I wasn’t fat. We had both dieted for weeks planning for this trip.
“No one is looking at the stripes while you’re wearing that! Why didn’t you wear the new Blueberry bikinis we picked up before we left?” Grace thrusts out her chest as she made a duck face at the camera.
I laughed, “Cuz that’s for a beach party, not the pool or laying out.”
“Pffft, I’ll wear it wherever I want, ya bitch!” Grace snapped another picture and tossed the selfie stick aside.
“Yes, ma’am, now pass me that vodka will ya?” I was thirsty and ready to get drunk.
“We getting plastered to do voiceovers for porn, Sady?” Grace couldn’t help but giggle.
“Naturally, how else will we convince the grocery delivery guy to plow us on the kitchen counter?” Sady burst into giggles as she took a long swig from the bottle and passed it to Grace.
Needless to say, we got so drunk we barely made it back to our room and passed out. No porn voice overs and luckily no sunburns. Tomorrow we pack up and hit the road again, eventually we’ll see real grass again! So, stay tuned for part 4…God only knows what we’ll encounter next.

Grace & Sady Road Trip-Motel (pt 2)

Part 2 of the Grace & Sady Road Trip

Grace and I have been driving for a while. We’ve taken turns at the wheel. We’ve flashed truckers. We’ve sang our hearts out. We’ve exhausted ourselves, but we finally found a little motel out in the middle of nowhere.
now what

Sady bursts into giggles as they get out of the car, pointing at the huge amenity sign right out front, “Look, Grace, they have porn!”
“Like I want to watch porn with YOU!” she laughs.
“Grace, look around, you think they have cable way out here? We can turn off the sound and make our own monologue! It’ll be hilarious, ” Sady chuckled to herself, remembering the last time they watched porn together, along with their good friend, Tracy.
“Ok, yeah, we can do that. I wonder if they have any place to eat around here,” she looks around and hangs her head, “Not looking so good. At least we still have some snacks from the gas station.”
She reaches into the car. I assume she’s grabbing a snack or her purse…I turn to walk towards the office to get us a room. I turn my head just in time to see her running towards me…

we're here

…with a magic wand in her hand! She’s coming towards me with it, “Grace! WTF are you doing….get that thing away from me!”
Grace is just laughing as she charges at me with her wireless wand just a buzzing, “Awww, Sady, don’t be scared, didn’t you get one of these when you got your Bound Box?”
“Yes, but I didn’t bring it on the trip, ya cunt!”
She chased me all the way around the sign and into the office with that thing buzzing. *laughs*
As we’re paying for the room, Grace asked the clerk if they have any place to eat or buy booze nearby. Not surprisingly the answer was no, but they did have a vending machine in the office and the manager, a pervy looking old man,  offered us a bottle of vodka and pointed out the window, “We’ve got complimentary adult movies and a pool if you ladies get too hot.” He chuckled to himself as Grace tried to hide the wand behind her back at this point, but I’m quite sure he saw it.
We took the vodka and giggled. Grace had managed to force the narrow end of the wand into her back pocket. As Grace grabbed some snacks from the machine, I reached forward and hit the button to make it start buzzing against her ass. We bursts into giggles and ran from the office with snacks and her buzzing wand in tow.
“Ya bitch,” she yells as I race to the car and grab our bags.
We were too exhausted to do much of anything that night, but planned to take a swim before hitting the road again the next day….

 

get away from me

Appreciation

She knew she’d been a bit of a brat the last few days. She also knew he loved it, but only to a point. She recognized his limits as well as he did hers. A few days was enough. Today, when he arrived she would be waiting like a good girl. She’d placed two glasses of whiskey and his favorite cigars on the makeshift table by his favorite chair. She’d put on something sweet, yet naughty so he’d have some nice eye candy while he relaxed after his long day at work. She would be ready for whatever he wanted and would be most obedient. It was time she showed him some appreciation and just to make sure there were absolutely not obstacles in his way…she left her panties on the floor as a sign he would surely recognize.
