Vacation Conundrum

She’d been thinking about it quite a bit and had decided for their anniversary trip, she’d wanted to go on a ski trip. She’d even gone out and bought an entire ski suit, complete with mask. When she told him about it at breakfast the next morning, he chuckled as he slid two tickets to Egypt across the table, “I was going to take you to see the great pyramids, one of the eight wonders of the world.”
She looked at him sideways, “I thought there were only  seven wonders of the world.”
He looked at her lovingly, “There were until the day you were born.”
She laughed, “Sweet talk isn’t going to get you out of this ski trip.”
He grinned as he passed her the hotel pamphlet with a pair of diamond earring, “Well, unless you plan on skiing down the pyramids, this will be the only ice you’ll see this year.”
She giggled as she puts the earrings on, “Yes, Sir! Egypt it is!”

Tiffany’s Challenge

Alright, so the other day, I challenged my readers to challenge me in a post so adequately titled: Challenge to Challenge. The first to offer up a challenge was my ever so sweet girl, Tiffany Parkin. She wants me to compare a sextant and a football. Well, I had to look up sextant, because I had no clue what it was. I must admit, I was quite disappointed to find out that it actually has nothing at all to do with sex. *sighs* That Tiffany is such a tease!
So, to start off, these two things have one thing in common right off the bat. I know nothing about either one. I now know that one is used for celestial navigation or something like that…the other, well, is the ball with which American football is played and looks nothing like a ball in my opinion. I guess the next thing they have in common is stars. Although one deals with the stars in the sky, the other often produces the celebrity type.  Pretty sure you could bore me to death talking about either one of them, as well. So, there you have it….I did my best. *shakes her head and mutters about Tiffany being a sadist*

You call that a challenge

Sady & Rina

So, it finally happened. I finally pinned Rina Edenflower down for a collaboration. She is so completely talented it blows me away and I humbled that she took the time to pose with me. In fact, she hosted our collaboration and look it….I had Rina’s hand on my thigh for hours!!! Don’t hate! Congratulate!! *grins* Seriously, this was so much fun and the time we spent together taking our photos was really fantastic. She is as beautiful inside as she is outside. I wish I could tell you her story, but it isn’t mine to tell. Let’s just say, you have no freaking idea what other people have gone through until you take the time to genuinely talk and listen. I love her more today than I imagined possible and I am so grateful to call her my friend. I truly hope that you will see more collaborations from the two of us in the future.

Not So Haunted

It’s no secret that I’m an atheist. So, it should come as no surprise that I’m also a skeptic when it comes to most things that are considered supernatural, particularly ghosts, possessions, demons, and anything considered haunted. However, most people never question how I came to these conclusions. For one thing, I’ve spent multiple nights in a house that was supposedly haunted and I never saw a thing. Haunted houses are especially suspect to me, because they’re always old houses. It’s like apartments or houses built in the last 50 years are never haunted. Plenty of murders and bizarre deaths happen in homes like those, but for some reason they’re never reported to be haunted. I’ve never heard of an atheist being possessed. For that matter, it seems to be limited to Catholics.
What might really surprise people is that I do believe that there is life on other planets, but not in our solar system. I also believe in vampires, but not the blood drinking, murderous type. I believe in psyvamps, as they feed off of energy, and this is something I’m quite familiar with, because I’ve been doing that very thing since I was a child. Psyvamps get a very bad reputation, but that’s a topic for another day. I, also, believe in certain forms of…well, for the lack of a better word…magic. This is also something I’ve experienced and perhaps one day, I’ll write more about that. For now, I just wanted to touch on some basic supernatural ideas, because I’m currently watching The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix. *laughs*
I dunno, I’m just not big into believing in make believe monsters, when all the real monsters I’ve seen and met have been human. Perhaps that’s why crime shows intrigue me so much. That or I’m just a twisted weirdo. *shrugs & giggles*

Hunger Hurts

“Hunger hurts, and I want him so bad, oh it kills
Cause I know I’m a mess he don’t wanna clean up
I got to fold cause these hands are too shaky to hold
Hunger hurts, but starving works, when it costs too much to love”

School’s Out

No matter how old I get, I still occasionally have the same nightmare that started when I was about 12yrs old. I would dream that I was somehow stuck at school without my clothes on. I remember being so mortified by this dream, that I kept an oversized tee shirt and shorts tucked away in my locker. I managed to get out of gym class all but two years and even then, I had back up clothes in my main locker, just in case something happened to my outfit while I was dressed for gym. It’s been a while now since I’ve had this dream…perhaps my brain has finally realized that “school’s out forever!”
Anyway, if you do any type of school RP, or just love to dress up like a school girl…*grins*…you’ve got to the play the Reign Gacha at Arcade. It is filled with the absolute coolest stuff.

On the Hunt

I could not have chosen a better song or written better words to go with this photo. I also doubt that many of my readers have heard it. So, please enjoy. ♥

Neo Noir & Krigare’ – On the Hunt

As the stars at night are falling
Like the torches in the dark
Marching with conviction
On the move and on the mark
Hear the howls in the distance
Chased the wolves they tried to run
Ooooh on the hunt

Finger on the trigger
Taste the fear that’s in the air
Silence breeds the tension
Haunted unaware
Chasing down the demons
Hear the beating of a drum
Ooooh on the hunt
Ooooh on the hunt

The past is left in ruins
Feel the pain and see the scars
The path of burning bridges
Feel the stone of a broken heart
Insatiable desire and it’s only just begun
Ooooh on the hunt
Ooooh on the hunt

Roses and Me

I think I have a strangle love/hate relationship with roses. I’ve never been a big fan of them, because I found them quite commercial and too cliche’. My mother has always loved them and whenever she’s been able to have a garden, she has had rose bushes of various types over the years. I don’t particularly like the smell, nor am I all that fascinated with any type of botany, much less roses. My favorite flower has always been the Gerber daisy, they’re hard to grow (at least for me) and they don’t last too long in a vase either. Fake ones are never mistaken for real ones and I find them to be much more special and alluring. However, with all of that said, the older my mom and I get, the more I appreciate the things she loves…like roses. I don’t want to wait until she’s gone to appreciate something she loves. So, more and more, I’ve found myself smiling upon the sight if roses.

Though you can’t see them super well in the photo below, Dahlia did these amazing tins with roses on top for the Sept round of TLC. I was so excited by them, that I had to include them in this post. You can bet you will see them again and again, as they are the perfect touch for every room in the house.

A Thousand Years

As much as I try, I cannot beat the power that music and lyrics deliver. So, here I stand again…letting someone else’s words speak for me….letting someone else’s melody deliver the message in my heart…even if no one is listening.

Christina Perri ~ A Thousand Years

Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave?
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone?
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow
One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What’s standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this
One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more
One step closer
One step closer

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more
