Heart of Glass

Tiger Lion – Heart Of Glass (cold cover)

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind
Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind
In between
What I find is pleasing and I’m feeling fine
Love is so confusing there’s no peace of mind
If I fear I’m losing you it’s just no good
You teasing like you do
Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind
Lost inside
Adorable illusion and I cannot hide
I’m the one you’re using, please don’t push me aside
We coulda made it cruising, yeah
Yeah, riding high on love’s true bluish light
In between
What I find is pleasing and I’m feeling fine
Love is so confusing there’s no peace of mind
If I fear I’m losing you it’s just no good
You teasing like you do

What I Like

I’m so glad that there were a handful of responses to my blog, “Dangerous Proposition.” In fact, not all of them were from close friends. One of my readers, Starr, asked, “What style of blogging do you enjoy? Images with zero texts just concentrating on the quality of the image or using imagination to create a story or what?” I actually enjoy both. Obviously the photos are what grab my attention, but if the writer grabs my attention with the first few sentences I am likely to read the entire post. However, if the posts is merely describing events or the clothing, I won’t bother reading that. My best friend, Kess, does both in her blog. The first half is usually a personal story or antedote, then the photo, and then she has a section “about the stuff.” I rarely read the about the stuff part.
If the blogs are long winded stories that are filled with superfluous words, I’m likely to have a hard time comprehending and squirrels will quickly lead me astray.  I do love good quick little antidotes or stories though. It would be mighty hypocritical of me not to, considering I’m guilty of all sorts of writing with my posts.
I’m still open to questions and/or topic challenges, so feel free to comment here or on the original post. Or you can contact me inworld: Sadystika Sabretooth♥

The Spider and the Fly

“Will you walk into my parlour?” said the Spider to the Fly,
‘Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I’ve a many curious things to show when you are there.”

“Oh no, no,” said the little Fly, “to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair can never come down again.
“I’m sure you must be weary, dear, with soaring up so high;
Will you rest upon my little bed?” said the Spider to the Fly.
“There are pretty curtains drawn around; the sheets are fine and thin,
And if you like to rest awhile, I’ll snugly tuck you in!”

“Oh no, no,” said the little Fly,  “for I’ve often heard it said,
They never, never wake again, who sleep upon your bed!

Said the cunning Spider to the Fly,  “Dear friend what can I do,
To prove the warm affection I ‘ve always felt for you?
I have within my pantry, good store of all that’s nice;
I’m sure you’re very welcome — will you please to take a slice?”

“Oh no, no,” said the little Fly,  “kind Sir, that cannot be,
I’ve heard what’s in your pantry, and I do not wish to see!”

“Sweet creature!” said the Spider,  “you’re witty and you’re wise,
How handsome are your gauzy wings, how brilliant are your eyes!
I’ve a little looking-glass upon my parlour shelf,
If you’ll step in one moment, dear, you shall behold yourself.”

“I thank you, gentle sir,” she said,  “for what you’re pleased to say,
And bidding you good morning now, I’ll call another day.”

The Spider turned him round about, and went into his den,
For well he knew the silly Fly would soon come back again:
So he wove a subtle web, in a little corner sly,
And set his table ready, to dine upon the Fly.

Then he came out to his door again, and merrily did sing,
“Come hither, hither, pretty Fly, with the pearl and silver wing;
Your robes are green and purple — there’s a crest upon your head;
Your eyes are like the diamond bright, but mine are dull as lead!”

Alas, alas! how very soon this silly little Fly,
Hearing his wily, flattering words, came slowly flitting by;
With buzzing wings she hung aloft, then near and nearer drew,
Thinking only of her brilliant eyes, and green and purple hue —
Thinking only of her crested head — poor foolish thing!
At last,
Up jumped the cunning Spider, and fiercely held her fast.
He dragged her up his winding stair, into his dismal den,
Within his little parlour — but she ne’er came out again!

And now dear little children, who may this story read,
To idle, silly flattering words, I pray you ne’er give heed:
Unto an evil counsellor, close heart and ear and eye,
And take a lesson from this tale, of the Spider and the Fly.

Show Some Love

So, there’s been a lot of hurt feelings on Facebook this week, because of a newish thing called Sarahah. It was designed for businesses so that employees could leave constructive feedback for each other, but it quickly found its way to Facebook and the SL community latched on. We were off and running. Many people refused to take part, knowing full well they would not take it well if insulted or while others publicly voiced their disdain for the site suggesting that if one could not say it without hiding behind anonymity they had no business saying it at all. Meanwhile, many were like me and saw it as something fun to do and jumped right off the bridge into the Sarahah internet river.
From there it either went uphill or downhill. For many it went downhill very quickly. Designers got attacked rather viciously. Yes, many of them received a lot of praise as well, but actual constructive criticism seemed to be absent. Many others reported being attacked and bullied. While some of these people took it in stride, others were quite hurt by the cruel words they found from anonymous contributors. A few even became aware of several secret admirers. While others found disturbing messages about people wanting to wear their skin or keep their eyeballs in jars. *giggles* I can’t begin to imagine who would have left such disturbing messages. *giggles again* I think almost everyone received some positive and loving messages, regardless of whatever else they found.
I personally received a total of 34 messages, most of which were very loving, kind, and positive. I was quite surprised and honestly, I little disappointed. I had prepared myself for some serious insults. I thought surely someone would be hateful, but I was quite fortunate. I think the closest I came to an insult was a rather astute observation from someone claiming not to know me very well. I had to laugh, because they were pretty accurate with what they said although they used an outdated terminology for their diagnosis of my mental health. *laughs* I had a few somewhat flirtation comments and a few that made no sense. I got no weird or insulting comments. Mostly, it was love and I was overwhelmed.
I was quite surprised by the reactions of a few that received negative comments. Some basically threw tantrums all over Facebook. Others quickly realized they did not possess the thick skin necessary to handle cowardly insults and shut down their Sarahah links. While others kept up their pages and found a new topic to bitch about on social media.
I am saddened that so many used it to bully and abuse others, but so goes the way of the internet. I think it’s important for everyone to remember that no matter what hateful or negative comments you received, there are far more people that love you. You are beautiful and wonderful in your own way. You are all amazing creatures. Whether you participated or not, please know that you are loved…not just by me, but many others. It is my hope that this weekend we will all remind the ones we love that they are special to us. As you proceed through your weekend and eventually into next week, show some love…not just to others, but to yourselves as well. ♥

Thinking Bout You

Yes, I know…another music post, Sady? Really? Yes, cuz its my blog and sometimes that’s where my mind is. Its times like these, photos like these…the music says it so much better than I can. I can only hope you’ll relate, appreciate the tunes, the photo, and above all the gorgeous creations from some incredibly talents designers. As always, lyrics and YouTube link provided below.

Thinking Bout You by Ariana Grande

I’ve been thinkin’ bout you
Yeah, I’ve been missing you
Where the hell are you, oh, when I need you?
I could still hear your voice
I ain’t got no choice
‘Cause I’m here all alone
I know I can’t wait ’til you get home

Oh, I don’t have you here with me
But at least I have the memory
I try to make it through the night
But I can’t control my mind

I’m just thinkin’ bout you
I’m thinkin’ bout you, I’m thinkin’ bout you
I’m just thinkin’ bout you
I’m thinkin’ bout you, I’m thinkin’ bout you

Got these thoughts in my head
Ain’t no way to forget
Got me losing my breath
Nobody got me the way that you did
Had my eyes rolling back
Had me arching my back
Now you love me so good
I wish you would hurry up and come back

Setting Off Alarms

Time for some more real talk. This time, I’m talking about profiles, the kinds of profiles that should set off alarms. You ready? Let’s get it started! Going to just list off some common things I see around the grid that should set off alarms based on my almost 11yrs on the grid.

1. Profiles that read, “Just came back to SL after a long break.” Chances are this person is an alt. I’m not saying don’t talk to them, but take it slow and watch them closely.
2. Profiles that have threat picks. You know the ones…”if you touch/hurt so & so, I will rip your heart out of your chest and shove it down your throat” kinda picks. Clearly, they’re not going to do any of that and the fact that they feel the need to make such threats publicly shows a lack of maturity and intelligence.
3. Blank profiles. C’mon people, put some effort into you SL. Blank profiles suggest you’re an alt or terribly boring. Either way…ALARM bells!
4. Overtly sexy profile pics. Legs spread with a bottle between your legs, may be a hot a picture, but its sending a message to everyone that looks at your profile. Skank that likes to drink. You either want nothing but sex or you’re desperate for attention.
5. The declaration against drama. I’m going to tell you right now. These people are usually the ones stirring the pot, then stepping back with their popcorn to watch the damage. RUN! Let me explain, you cannot get through life without drama. Don’t believe me, perhaps you need to see the definition of drama. Do allow me to enlighten you.
|||||drama: any situation or series of events having vivid, emotional, conflicting, or
striking interest or results|||||
6. Declaration of being a bitch/asshole. Chances are they’re correct, so why even bother. These people have up walls and they’ve just informed you of that fact. Do you honestly feel like jumping through hoops for them before you’ve even gotten to know them?
7. Emo picks. If their picks are full of emotional vomit. They’re either going to bring you down or suck you into it. Its exhausting and seriously, did you come to SL for that?
8. Passive aggressive picks. They have a pick clearly aimed at someone they believe is watching their profile, but don’t have the balls to just say it directly to whomever they’re talking about. Chances are the next one could be aimed at you. Why bother?
9. Profiles that read like an online dating profile. There are actual sites & groups in SL for that, but overall that is not the main objective of Second Life. C’mon, everyone you meet here isn’t looking for love. Just stop it already.
10. Profiles that declare they keep SL & RL separate.  This is impossible unless that avatar is strictly for Role-Play purposes and says so straight away. Some aspect of the real person behind the avatar is involved with how they interact in this virtual world. This person is most likely hiding something.

So, there’s my top ten profile warning signs. It pays to read profile before approaching each other and often shows you whether or not you have something in common.

The Edge

Its a music blog. Why? Because the world makes me sad and the lyrics to this song have really been weighing heavy on my mind lately. So, I’ll provide you with the link and this time, just a few of the lyrics. You can look up the rest if you feel so inclined. I don’t have a whole lot to say, because well, I just don’t. Shocking, I know, but even I run out of things to say sometimes.

Aerosmith Livin On the Edge

“If chicken little tells you that the sky is fallin’
Even if it wasn’t would you still come crawlin’
Back again
I bet you would my friend
Again and again and again and again and again”

Would You Rather…Wednesday

Would You Rather….Wednesday

Would you rather be able to talk with animals or be able to speak all foreign languages? Well, this is a pretty easy one for me, because I don’t really like people that much. *laughs* I mean, I like some people, but I’m not trying to talk to everybody and anybody. I’m a bit of a recluse, but I absolutely adore animals and would love to speak and communicate more effectively with my pets and any other animals that cross my path. Dr. Sady Doolittle at your service! Yes, I rather like the sound of that. I actually wanted to a be a veterinarian until I was in the fourth grade and watched the vet stick a thermometer up my cat’s ass. That was the end of that dream, right there.

animal party1

Just imagine if you could talk to animals, how much more interesting parties would be. Instead nationalities and races, I’d literally have different species and we would dance…and laugh…and laugh…and tell stories…the cat would yawn and tell us how boring we all are, because lets face it..cats are assholes. The sheep would be looking all paranoid knowing I have welsh friends like Rom and Tally. We’d all have to watch the raccoon, because everyone knows he double dips his chips. The music would have to be extra loud…because…well…the wolf thinks he can sing. The goat is especially fun for he laughs at all the worst jokes. If you started off thinking languages, bet you changed your mind now, huh?

animal party3

Alright, so please reply on any social media you find the blog on and let’s see what you’d rather do. Meanwhile, there’s so much goodness to show off in these pictures. I had to multiples to show it all off. I have tons of critters from Jian and all of these are from that amazing store, but don’t think this is all they have, because they have tons more stuff! Check out their mainstore and take some lindens with you, because if you like animals in your SL, you’re going to fall in love!

Dark & Merry Christmas?

I’m a tad different from everyone else in my family, which should come as no shock to anyone that knows me or where I live. Most of my close friends in SL know that my RL bedroom has dark burgundy walls and all of my decor is black & white, with an abundance of skulls on the walls, shelves, and even the bed. Its a pillow, calm down, I don’t sleep with skeletons. My favorite holiday is Halloween and I love all the clearance sales after Halloween, because its a great time to pick  up new and interesting decor.

So, what does this have to do with Christmas? Well, for a while we would put up a tree in every room of our house, smaller table top trees, of course. My favorite tree of all time was an artificial black tree that I decorated with black, silver, and red ornaments. So, when I discovered that there were actually some goth themed ornaments and decor at Tannenbaum I was elated! It really doesn’t matter what kind of tree you want to have…the proper decor will be at Tannenbaum! So, if traditional or candy colored Christmas isn’t your style? Then to you I wish a Dark & Merry Christmas!♥
