Legends

Litte Joey loved going through his grandfathers old pictures. As he pulled out a particularly old one he’d never seen before, he looked up at his grandfather, “Who is this, PapPaw?”
The old man’s shaky hands reached for the photo and smiled, “Oh, these two are legends. Josh and Sady were responsible for saving the entire grid from impending doom.”
Little Joey’s eyes got big, “Oh PapPaw, tell me more! Tell me all about Sosh and Jady!”
The old man chuckled and put the photo back in the box closing it up, “Another time, Joey, time for you to get to bed.” He tucked his grandson in for the night, kissing his forehead, “Sweet dreams, Joey.”
As he climbed into bed with his wife, he kissed her sweetly, “Little Joey found the picture of us from the Apocalypse party at ThereAfter. Hope you’re ready to be a hero,” he chuckles, “Telling him quite a story tomorrow.”
Sady giggled and kissed Josh, “You and your stories, my love.”
“I learned it from watching you, okay?”
They both laughed and slipped off to sleep.

ThereAfter

I’ve had the great honor and privilege of being involved behind the scenes with ThereAfter: A Post Apocalyptic Affair. Naturally, I love the theme of the event, but this event is unlike any other I’ve seen. This is not only a themed shopping event. Everyday there are additional activities going on Fashion Theater, DJs, and Live singers! The scenery alone is worth a visit and you will definitely find some incredible must have quality designs. I’m featuring just a few things here, but this is a must see event! I’m not going to waste your time chatting on and on about it. I want you take a look at the scene I’ve created using just a few of the amazing items you’ll find there, then go check it out for yourself. You can be sure, you’ll be seeing a lot more of this event from me, as well. Happy Apocalypse!!♥

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!♥

Mysterious Manor

The yard is always slightly overgrown, as if manicured that way on purpose. The path to the door is always clear. The windows are always clean, yet no furnishings can be seen from outside. There are never lights on in the house, but the fence stays lit year round. No one has ever witnessed workers or residents in or around the property, children tell stories about about dark creatures that lives there and dare one another to knock on the door, but they never do. Parents warn their children to stay away from the mysterious property. Even teenagers dare not cross the property line.
The mysterious manor simply stands at the end of an unpaved road at the edge of a small town. There are no public records on the property, but no one can remember a time in history that the house wasn’t there. No mail is ever delivered, in fact, the house has no actual address. Its as if it doesn’t exist, yet it does. Its presence simply looms in the  distance.

Kindergarten Tired

She wasn’t sure how much more she could take or how long she could hang on. The weight of it all was simply too much sometimes. The day had simply consumed her and she was feeling kindergarten tired. You know, when you’re so tired, you’d just lie right down wherever you are and gladly take a nap? Yeah, she was feeling that way, but she had much to do and could only take the time to lace up her amazing new shoes. Naturally while she was bent down to do so she took a little rest on her knee. In the meantime, check out those shoes! *giggles*

Feeding Grounds

Legend has it, she was the daughter of a siren and a deaf sailor, she possessed the hypnotic power and divine hunger of her mother accompanied by the humanity and mortality of her father. It was unknown to her as to how long she would live or what could kill her aside from starvation, but she knew that if she fed on the souls of sailors she aged far slower than normal humans. As it were, she was 167 years old, but didn’t look more than 30. It was only when she did not feed that she would begin to age and she could never venture too far from the shore. For many years she fed on the souls of pirates, but as time went by there were fewer and fewer and those she could find hardly had souls to feed upon.
She was seeking a new feeding ground when she happened upon a beach dotted with ancient ruins. It felt like home and soon enough she developed a taste for rich yacht owners, particularly those driven to take advantage of a beautiful young women. Their souls were especially dark and delicious. She fed both her hunger and humanity with each that she took. She could not know how often they would happen along, but she could recognize the smell of pompous, self-entitlement from miles away.
Smart mothers have tried for years to warn their sons of such a beast, but they continue not to listen…and so she continues to feed.

at peace

Honky Tonk

Josh and I were attending a Savannah Rain show at Seaside Lounge a while back. We were on voice and Sav started singing Tanya Tucker’s “Love Me Like You Used To.” I got lost down memory lane and told Josh, “This is a true Honky Tonk Song.” Being English, he’s not really familiar with exactly what a Honky Tonk is…so I began to explain it and he insisted that I write it down. So, here it is…

This is one of those songs you play on the jukebox, because there’s not usually a live band unless its Friday or Saturday night. But once in a while on a Monday night, you just get overwhelmed with that bluesy lonely feeling. You crave the dim flickering lights and loud music, being surrounded by people, but not really interacting with them much. You half hope that someone will notice how sad and lonely you are….you half hope they don’t. And then certain songs will simply take you away…you close your eyes to fight the tears as you sing along, as the music is loud enough that no one can hear you anyway. You somehow find some solace in your solitude and in the bottom of a bottle.
Sometimes you go to that particular bar, just hoping you’ll see HIM…as you know he frequents that bar regularly. You remember dancing with him when no one else was dancing. You reminisce about the good times as the tears stream down your face.
Regardless of the reason, you sit alone at the bar and unless you had too many, you leave alone and thankfully a bit more numb. That’s been my experience with Honky Tonks anyway. Yes, its always country music and on weekends its a much livelier place, but weekdays brings out the sad and lonely along with the regulars.

I’d like to add a little note, that not all country music is sad…so you should check out Savannah Rain, she is by far the best live country singer on the grid in my opinion and Seaside Lounge has some great live performances, so be sure to check them out, too. Ya know, when you take a break from shopping and want to show off your pretty new clothes!
