Devil in Me

“I don’t wanna wake it up
I don’t wanna wake it up
I don’t wanna wake it up
The devil in me”
Halsey- Devil in Me

Have you ever met someone that just brings out the worst in you? They might not have done anything to you, but for some reason there’s just this instant dislike of them? It happens to me from time to time and I’m hoping I’m not the only one. Maybe I’m just the only one willing to admit it. Surely not. When I do meet people like that, I try to be polite and just keep my distance. So, its not really a problem.
Then there’s those people that just run around doing all kinds of dirt to other people. They haven’t done anything to me, that I know of, but I’m not trying to get close to people like that either, but then they go and do something really nasty to someone you love. *sighs* Its really hard to keep my mouth shut in situations like that. I know I should trust the person who has been offended to take care of themselves and most of the time I do. However, in case I never mentioned it before…I happen to be human and with that comes some faults. I know, I know, you thought I was perfect. *laughs* Let me tell you now…there are times when its all I can do to keep myself in check. I’m not talking about threatening someone online. I’m talking about just reading a bitch like a book. Front to back, side to side, up and down…and I’ve been told on a few occasions my words can cut deeper than any knife. Having lost more than one friend in the past to my apparently razor sharp words I really don’t wanna wake up the devil in me.

Is My Dark Side Light?

What if I told you that my dark side is actually pink & fluffy or blue & ruffled? You see, its not abnormal at all to see me dressed head to toe in black…or white for the rebelling rebel in me. I have this random side of me that absolutely adores soft pinks and blues. Every once in a while, I like to dress up in super girly colors and outfits. It confuses my friends…*giggles*
When I paired up this Brigitte bodysuit from le fil casse with the Lily heels from Phedora, I knew I would be as girly as girly gets…ruffles! RUFFLES! And not the delicious chips that go great with french onion dip, either. Actual ruffles on me! Yeah, yeah, but look how pretty!!!
I have a reputation for being the dark, cynic among my friends, but one look at me in frills and they know there’s a hopeless romantic lurking beneath the surface and I’m okay with that. I am a lot of things, my style reflects that. What can I say? Oh, I know!
*starts singing* I feel pretty…ooh so pretty….

See, Tracy?

Once upon a time, my friend Tracy came to my house in Second Life. We sat on the couch and were playing with the poses (PG poses, you pervs!) and one of them made it look like I was petting her knee. Thus began a long standing joke about Tracy and her hairy knees. So, when I was looking for a pose to show off these gorgeous new wedges from Bueno, I ran across this one from Klubwerk. The first thought in my head was, “See, Tracy? This is what smooth legs look and feel like…is nice, yeah?” For some reason this was also said in a strange foreign accent like the one used for Brüno in that crazy movie.
So there you have it, a little peak into the bizarre mind of me! You also see what Tracy puts up with as my friend. Lucky for me, she’s a good sport and takes it all in stride…even if she has hairy knees.

Return of Spring

I can’t speak for every corner of the globe, but it certainly seems as though winter and spring have had quite the torrid affair this year. My tulips were blooming at the end of February as it was unusually warm. Hell, we ever had our windows open at night for a several days in a row. Until last week, my area (Northern Alabama) had one day of winter a week, the rest were more like spring. Then last week, we were back to the frigid tundra. It was cold and dreary, windy and rainy. Yesterday, the temperatures were so warm we were able to bathe the dog outside. I’m hoping this is the end of the wonky weather and this return of Spring temperatures if finally official. I absolutely adore Spring. The birth of flowers and sense of renewal that comes with crisp spring morning air…yes, its exactly what my tired spirit needs as I approach the next twelve months of my real life. I am filled with hope and wonder. I’m hoping that things really do work out for the best and I’m wondering what this next few steps in my life holds, because these are the final chapters of a very dark period of my life.

return of spring

I’m looking forward to overcoming some very serious fears. I’m about to face down some of my fiercest demons. And I’m going to win…or die trying. I have decided that I did not come this far in my life to just roll over and surrender to circumstances, regardless of what part I’ve played along the way. Its time for me to step up and do what’s right for me. I hope that the return of spring will fill you all with hope and wonder. In the meantime….*grins*…Happy Shopping!♥

Look the Other Way

“you cant blame me
you do it too
to escape the pain
we looked the other way”
Look The Other Way by Evan Blum & Loren North

I’m not going to write a lot about this line from the song. I think its pretty powerful on its own and I encourage you to listen to the song.

Country or Southern

Most often when people hear that I’m from Alabama, they assume I’m a country girl. That really couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m an Army brat. We moved a lot, but whenever my father was stationed stateside, he would be at Redstone Arsenal which landed us in one of the most diverse and technologically advanced city in the state, if not THE most. Its got a slight small town feel but with a population of 350,000 people, this area is anything but “country.” That’s not to say we don’t have our fair share of rednecks. Afterall, it IS the South, but I’ve always lived in the city or suburbs. *laughs*

country-girl2

Because of the stereotypes, as a child I was embarrassed and worked very hard to sound as “normal” as possible. Which to be fair, wasn’t too hard, considering by the age of 10, I had spent six year of my life in Germany. (No, I can’t speak German.) As I’ve grown older, I’ve grown to embrace my hometown and the accents that come with it. However, around here I get asked where I’m from, because unless I’m drunk, mad, or super tired…I don’t have much of an accent. *laughs*

So, as usual there’s an abundance of goodies at events going on across the grid, so get on out there and round em up, cuz there’s simply no excuse not to be on point at all times. Happy Shopping!♥

A Kiss

“Kiss me, and you will see how important I am.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

I haven’t read The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath, although its certainly on my list now, because I originally thought this quote was from one of her poems. Upon my googley investigation, I discovered it’s not from a poem at all. Anyway, this post isn’t about Sylvia Plath, but y’all know me…I digress.

a-kiss2

I’m not going to say that a kiss ever made me fall in love, but I will say that there have been some kisses that made my stomach flutter and my knees weak! Some might wonder if that could even be possible in Second Life and I assure you it can. I’m not saying the lack of a great emoted kiss is going to stop a relationship from happening, because c’mon…in SL, at least for me, its all about personality. However, given how much I like to write, I really appreciate a well emoted kiss. I’m quite lucky at the moment, for Josh is quite adept in that area, weak knees and butterflies in my belly are a regular occurrence.

Okay, I know, you’ve all probably had enough mush and gush this week from Valentine’s Day, so I won’t keep on about it. Just enjoy the pictures…the pose is available at ON9 from Q-poses. Also, take a good look at the main picture at the very top, cuz those ears we’re wearing are pure FIRE….kinda like us…tehehe. Go check them out for yourself over at Tres Chic.
