Strange

“Hey, anyone can get love, anyone can get laid
You know you’re home when you find the ones who
Stay brave enough not to tame, they let you burst into flames
Stoke the coals and then watch you blow, yeah
They’re the ones make you trust in the universe
When you’re lost and you’re left and it’s getting worse
They’re the ones who you know will get you by
We are all strange
And it ain’t never, never, ever gonna change
We are all strange
And it ain’t never, ever, never gonna change”

Red Sky

I took this picture before Christmas and just hadn’t gotten around to using it. I remember thinking about the little rhyme my mother taught me as a child, “Red sky at night, Sailor’s delight. Red sky in morning, Sailor’s take warning.” Beyond that, I don’t have anything really deep to say, except go try the demo of this dress, there are subtle levels of sheer and lace that really make this a work of art. My photo doesn’t begin to do it justice.

One thing leads to another

Bathrooms are the most intimate rooms in any home. We are rarely more vulnerable than we are in a bathroom, which is why movies like Psycho mess with us soooo bad! Just think about it, you shower and bathe in there….NAKED! We pull our pants down and sit on a porcelain seat with a hole in it that goes God knows where and God knows what could come up from there! Don’t act like it doesn’t happen, we’ve all seen the videos of snakes and stuff coming up out of the toilet! We even have the nerve to put a mirror in there! I mean, I know some of you look amazing naked and probably love staring at your bodies in the mirror, but I am not one of you!
The title of the blog is from that song by The Fixx. It really has nothing to do with the photo or the bathroom, but for some reason I couldn’t get that damn song out of my head when I was setting up the scene. Maybe its the trail of clothes….God only knows what I was thinking, but there you have it! Enjoy your next trip the bathroom…*smirks*

I was the brightest light you ever knew

“I said hey you, with your world painted blue
I said fuck you, I was the brightest light you ever knew”
~ Kailee Morgue – F**k U

I’ve wasted so much of my life giving the best parts of me to people who only pretend to appreciate it, but in the end they never do. They prove time and time again that they are just another liar…another disappointment…another fake friend…another user. I’m over that now. I’m going to live my life for me and only me going forward. Its time for me to take my life back and I’m done bowing down before some undeserving asshat.
I’m always saying that I do what I want, but apparently what I wanted was to sell my soul just to hear two words that now ring through my ears like a bitter lie and the three words? Well, I’m not even going there. I’m pissed off and I’m tired of being disrespected. I’m tired of disrespecting myself. Now is the time for my “friends” to decide if they are real or not, because I’m done dealing with fake people and liars just for the sake of someone else. Those of you out there talking shit behind my back? Knock yourselves out. Your hate gives me power I never sought, but if your feelings for me are that strong…well, as the song says, “F**k U!”
Oh and before you fuckers get all paranoid about who is telling what? Well, its like this…I am an energy reader and I feed off energy like a vampire. So, when your energy is bitter and makes me sick to my stomach, I know what you’re about. I see through you and your lies. Oh and you lost out on one of the best friends you could’ve ever had. And ya know what? If you even THINK that I’m talking to/about you, then I damn sure am or you wouldn’t even think that.

The Five Year Rule

Quite some time ago, I saw a Cher interview in which she said that he mother gave her some advice that she now calls the five year rule, “If its not going to matter in five years, then its doesn’t matter.”

Clearly, this is easier done than said, but when you really think about it, its good sensible advice. I’ve applied this as often as I can and it certainly helps with the little stuff. Oddly enough all that little stuff adds up and once you let go of the anger over all that little stuff, its like a giant weight off your shoulders. Like you got rid of a huge problem, but really you just let go of the little ones. It really can make a big difference in your daily life. So, the next time you find yourself getting upset over something, ask yourself if it will matter in five years.

Dear Customers

Dear Customers,

Obviously, this is not aimed at every single customer in the world or even on the grid. However, it is aimed at enough people that I took it upon myself to use a blog post for the article. I’m not going to bitch at you or try to insult you, because customers are wonderful. Yet, there seems to a few things in Second Life that most customers seemed to be a bit confused about, so I’m going to try and help both the customer, as well as the designer, with a few helpful tips.

  1. Contacting the designer for any reason. First thing I recommend is looking at the designer’s profile. Most designers have specific instructions for common issues and a list of contacts for the fastest response. Follow those instructions. I promise, they’re there for a reason.
  2. Keep it Simple. Whatever the directions say to do…do it. Don’t go over the stop with long drawn out explanations. Designers are smart, they know what keywords mean. So, instead of explaining why you made a double purchase, just stated: Double purchase….and whatever else the designer needs from you.
  3. Transaction History. People, please, learn what this is…it is your friend and can save you so much frustration down the road. It surprises me how many people don’t know how to do this. You go to SecondLife.com  and log in. On the left, there’s a drop down menu for Account, then a clear and precise option for Transaction History. This will open up a variety of options with your most recent transactions listed, along with other pertinent information. Copy & paste what you need.
  4. Be polite & patient. Chances are if you’re having an issue with the fit or not receiving your item, other people might be, too. The designer might be dealing with complaints as quickly as possible. Being nasty and rushing the designer is not going to encourage them to help you any faster.
  5. Designers are human, too. Please remember that just like you, designers are people with lives in RL and some even manage to have one in SL. However, they are very busy and deserve some time off without having to hide on an alt. Being courteous takes you a long way.
  6. Profiles are important. Please read designer profiles, customer service profiles, etc. Make sure you are contacting the correct person and it might not hurt to double check what your sending to make sure its got all the right info.
  7. Legacy names matter! I personally like to sign my notecards with a copy of my calling card. Just type your name into your inventory search and you’ll find yours. This makes it easier for the designer to find you. However, if for some reason a calling card is too difficult for you…-_-…please copy your legacy name, not your display name. You cannot be searched by display name and it is not the designer’s job to play detective to figure out who sent them what.

That’s it for now, my lovelies. However, my regular readers know I love doing these “Dear _______” posts. So, there you have it, the first directed at customers. Happy Shopping!

What I Am

Somethings never change. *laughs* So, I have boxes of notebooks and loose papers filled with words I’ve written, notes I’ve taken, letters, poems, short stories, essays…just anything and everything. So, I’ve been going through a lot of this stuff, realizing that I don’t need a lot of this crap and since I’m sort of starting over, why not declutter my life before I turn into a hoarder, right? I got really tickled as I was going through this one notebook. I remember I had sat down with my friends and stacks of note paper. We sat around drinking coffee, laughing, talking, and whenever one of us thought of a good topic for me to write about or a question for me to answer, we wrote it down, folded up the paper and dropped it in this shoebox. The goal was to take out a piece of paper at least once or twice a week, and respond to the topic, date it, and maybe, if I felt like it, I would share with them later on. I didn’t.

However, I came upon that notebook and found an entry dated the 2nd of February, 1999. So, twenty years ago, here’s what I wrote in response to a topic that said: My Worst Habits

I’d have to say that my worst habit would be smoking cigarettes. I’ve tried to quit several times. Apparently, I have not tired hard enough. I also cuss way too much. It’s not attractive, ladylike, or professional Its unnecessary and I need to quit that, too. I procrastinate too much. I smoke too much weed. It has affected my memory and it makes me lazy. I don’t think I’ll ever quit all together, but I surely need to ease up. I have a lot of bad habits and I need to make a list of the ones I want to change, and if need be, replace them with more positive ones.

Just to drive home the point of me sharing this…I still smoke, I still cuss too much, procrastination has become an art form, and I still smoke weed. Though not nearly as much as I did back then. I think back then, I smoked no less than a couple ounces a week. *shrugs* I had a good deal in place and that was my life. Those were some good times, but the real point is a line from one of my favorite songs ever, “What I am is what I am…”
If you don’t know Edie Brickell & New Bohemians….check it out. Yes, its older than most of my readers, but like all the best music…it is timeless.♥

Like a watercolor about to fade

“My heart feels like the sharpest razor blade
I really hope this won’t give me away
‘Cause I’ve been drowning here for days
Like a watercolor about to fade
Every inch of me is there to trace
No secrets left here on my page
Underneath my skin, I see a change
Blood races right up to my face”
~ Astrid S – Paper Thin

Why did you never notice me?

“I left a message on your phone
You never called me
I know I should leave you alone
It’s not likely

Found myself walking down your street
Why did you never notice me?

Empty picture frames on the wall
I see your face
I keep my front door unlocked
Just in case”
~ Kailee Morgue – Ghost of Mine
