Hidden Treasure

Have you ever played one of those hidden clue games? There’s several on Facebook, plenty of apps for phones, etc. You find the hidden objects and progress through the story. The picture with the hidden objects usually reflect that particular part of the story. Well, when I initially started setting up this scene….I ended up chasing squirrels all over the internet. What started out as a squirrel’s Halloween party quickly turned into a hidden object picture. Except, you don’t have to find them, they are all listed below with slurls so that you can go grab your own fun Halloween and Autumn decor! Happy shopping!♥

The Fighter

I’m on a music kick at the moment and I’ve been dealing with more pain than usual….so, I’m letting the music speak for me.

In This Moment – The Fighter

I don’t need you to save me
I don’t need you to cure me
I don’t need you and your antidote for I am my disease
I don’t need you to free me
I don’t need you to help me
I don’t need you to lead me through the light
I will always fall and rise again
Your venomous heroine
‘Cause I am a survivor
Yeah, I am a fighter
I will fall and rise above
And in your hate I find love
‘Cause I’m a survivor
Yeah, I am a fighter
I will not hide my face
I will not fall from grace
I’ll walk into the fire, baby
All my life
I was afraid to die
And now I come alive inside these flames
You don’t want me to love you
You don’t want me to need you
You don’t want to look at me for you will turn to stone
You don’t want me to hurt you
You don’t want me to bite you
You don’t want me or my aching soul
For I will only fall and rise again
Your venomous heroine
I’m a survivor
Yeah, I am a fighter
I will fall and rise above
And in your hate I find love
‘Cause I’m a survivor
Yeah, I am a fighter
I will not hide my face
I will not fall from grace
I’ll walk into the fire, baby.
All my life
I was afraid to die
But now I come alive inside these flames!
I don’t need you to save me
‘Cause I’m a survivor
Yeah, I am a fighter
I will not hide my face,
I will not fall from grace,
I’ll walk into the fire, baby
All my life
I was afraid to die
But now I come alive inside these
Alive inside these
Alive inside these

Nothing Specific

It’s really easy to misunderstand what’s going on with other people, especially in a virtual world. So often the message depends on the perception of the reader and unless you’re adding a bit of an emote along with your words they can be easily misunderstood and thus the drama begins. What thing is for sure, there’s plenty of that happening across the grid. I think its one of the main reasons I like to voice. I don’t like my voice, but I do prefer talking to people when I can, because the inflections of one’s voice can really can make a world of difference. I realize I’m sorta rambling on about nothing specific here, but sometimes that’s just how my mind works.

More Happiness

“You might not make it to the top, but if you are doing what you love, there is much more happiness there than being rich or famous.” ~ Tony Hawk

Naturally, for this picture, I wanted a Tony Hawk quote, because he’s probably the most well known skate boarder in the U.S. Even my 72yr old mother knows of him. Yet, this quote really hits home with me, because my best friend, Kess Crystal, recently did a poll for bloggers, then released the results in her blog, Big Blogger Questions.  I know that every blogger on the grid did not participate in the poll, but I know a fair amount did. The results were a bit surprising, but I think the biggest surprise for me was the amount of bloggers that see blogging as competitive. It was 26%!! I have never seen blogging as competitive. I’m super happy to see talented photographer fashionistas take to blogging.
I started blogging as a distraction…as a form of therapy…a creative outlet. I never looked at other bloggers and thought, “I’m going to be better them.” I used to wonder how one blogger got chosen for a brand vs a blogger that I thought did better photographs, but as I stepped into blogger management, I realized that the designers have a certain vision for how they want their brand to be represented and each has their own criteria. Some will not take on bloggers that feature nudity or curse words. Some brands won’t consider a micro blogger (flickr only). I’ve never been angry with a friend for getting selected for a brand I wanted to blog for and I didn’t. I do my absolute best to surround myself with positive and supportive people. I don’t blog for the hopes of being popular or famous in a virtual world. I do it, because I’m addicted to it. What started off as a for of creative expression and therapy, has evolved to a creative adventure and full on addiction. I’m even prone to overdosing…taking on more than I can handle and edging dangerously close to blogger burnout, but alas, I’ve been able to reign myself in and make it all work.

Bad Girls

Alright, yes, its another post with a song and lyrics, but these really do kinda go together…at least in my head. This is one of the few times I wish I had video making skills, cuz I’d love to try to do something bigger with this song. Either way, I love the song…hope you do, too. If not, watch the video with the sound off, cuz there’s some kickass car tricks going on.

M.I.A. -Bad Girls

Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
My chain hits my chest
When I’m bangin’ on the dashboard
My chain hits my chest
When I’m bangin’ on the radio
Get back, get down
Pull me closer if you think you can hang
Hands up, hands tied
Don’t go screaming if I blow you with a bang
Suki Zuki
I’m coming in the Cherokee
Gasoline
There’s steam on the window screen
Take it, take it
World’s bouncing like a trampoline
When I get to where I’m going, gonna have you trembling
Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
My chain hits my chest
When I’m banging on the dashboard
My chain hits my chest
When I’m banging on the radio
Yeah back it, back it
Yeah pull up to the bumper game
Yeah with a signal
Cover me, cause I’m changing lanes
Had a handle on it
My life, I broke it
When I get to where I’m going, gonna have you saying it
Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
My chain hits my chest
When I’m banging on the dashboard
My chain hits my chest
When I’m banging on the radio
Get back, get down
Pull me closer if you think you can hang
Hands up, hands tied
Don’t go screaming if I blow you with a bang
Going nought to bitch, I’ll see four million
Accelerating fast I can do this in a second
Lookin’ in the rear view, swaggin’ goin’ swell
Leavin’ boys behind ’cause it’s legal just to kill
Shift gear, automatic, damned if I do
Who’s gonna stop me when I’m coming through?
What we got left is just me and you
But if I go to bed, baby, can I take you?
Get back, get down
Pull me closer if you think you can hang
Hands up, hands tied
Don’t go screaming if I blow you with a bang
Live fast, die young
Bad girls do it well
Live fast, die young…
Chain hits my chest
When I’m bangin’ on the dashboard
My chain hits my chest
When I’m bangin’ on the radio
Chain hits my chest
When I’m bangin’ on the dashboard
My chain hits my chest
When I’m bangin’

Acetaminophen

It’s Friday, so I’m ready to party and let go! So, to get you all pumped and in the mood, I’m giving you one of my favorite songs. (For those that don’t know, acetaminophen is Tylenol.)

K Flay ~ Acetaminophen

It’s a cold world we’re living in
Feel myself giving in
Drink, drink, shot, shot
Acetaminophen is what i’ll be needing if i keep it up
Tomorrow morning but i’m warning you i could give a fuck
See i’m living on the edge of things til my mind is wrecked
Say you’ll give me all those better things
Breathing on my neck
Got drugs in my purse and stars in my eyes
Been thinking all this over and I’ve come to realize
You only like me when you’re drunk
All us girls we look the same
I’m just the flavor of the month
Tomorrow you’ll forget my name
You only like me when i’m drunk
All us girls we look the same
I’m just the flavor of the month
Tomorrow you’ll forget my name
It’s getting hot up in this room so
Let’s treat the party like it’s carryout, to go
What we’ll do who knows
Kudos, congratulations, my regards
You got me in your pocket now let’s hop inside your car
See i’m living on the edge of things til my mind is wrecked
Say you’ll give me all those better things
Breathing on my neck
Got drugs in my purse and stars in my eyes
Been thinking all this over and I’ve come to realize
You only like me when you’re drunk
All us girls we look the same
I’m just the flavor of the month
Tomorrow you’ll forget my name
You only like me when i’m drunk
All us girls we look the same
I’m just the flavor of the month
Tomorrow you’ll forget my name

Sick Like Me

I posted a meme yesterday that read, “Do you ever have one of those days, where you just want to get drunk, go bat shit crazy and set the world on fire?” Well, yesterday was that day for me. I’m already bat shit crazy, but I drank an entire bottle of wine on an empty stomach. As I suffered through one of the longest and hardest anxiety attacks I’ve had in quite a while, I fantasized about setting the world on fire, stabbing a few people while I watched them bleed out slowly, finding the Louise to my inner Thelma and going out in a blaze of glory. Instead I fell asleep with a cigarette in my hand while watching women in prison make their life look a lot better than men’s prison.
This morning, I find myself blasting In This Moment and remembering why I love this band so much. Recognizing so much of myself in their lyrics. So, here it is…are you sick like me?

In This Moment – Sick Like Me

Is it sick of me
To need control of you?
Is it sick to make
You beg the way I do?
Is it sick of me
To want you crawling on your knees?
Is it sick to say
I want you biting down on me
Are you sick like me?
Am I beautiful
As I tear you to pieces?
Am I beautiful?
Even at my ugliest, you always say
I’m beautiful
As you tear me to pieces
You are beautiful
Even at your ugliest, I always say
You’re beautiful and sick like me
Is it sick of me
To feed the animal in you?
Is it sick to say
I tease the hunter like I do?
Is it sick of me
To watch the wicked way you thrill?
Is it sick to say
I live to break your will
Are you sick like me?
Am I beautiful
As I tear you to pieces?
Am I beautiful?
Even at my ugliest, you always say
I’m beautiful
As you tear me to pieces
You are beautiful
Even at your ugliest, I always say
You’re beautiful and sick like me
Am I beautiful
As I tear you to pieces?
I am beautiful
Even at my ugliest, you always say
I’m beautiful
As I tear you to pieces
Am I beautiful
Even at my ugliest, you always say
You’re beautiful
As I tear you to pieces?
You are beautiful
Even at you ugliest, I always say
You’re beautiful and sick like me

Posting on Sundays

So, Grace has stated that whenever she post photos on Sundays they don’t tend to do that well on Flickr. I wonder if that’s true or if perhaps its the photos she’s choosing for Sundays. In order to prove my point, I figured two naked girls is bound to get some favs and definitely some views. *giggles* We’ll just post it and see if this does the trick, if not, then Grace wins the bet. What did we bet? Oh, that’s for us to know and you to watch our blogs for….*grins*

Oh Me, Oh My

Music amazes me the way it crawls into your head, as if the writers of the songs I love have read my mind like a book. It astounds me the way I relate to so many lyrics, even the rhythm will lure me in hypnotizing me to digest the words that have been plucked from me to dance with the magic of a melody. The best of all is that the lyrics are literally poetry  in motion, because read alone without the music, they stand just as strong and powerful as they do when traveling the path of the instruments that make them into songs.

Imogen Heap ~ Oh Me, Oh My

Quiet now in sleepy dreams
To me it seems the only time to be
Just me
Bombarded by the phone, in my own home
Can’t get the space that I need
And how I need it, yeah
Oh me, yeah, oh my
Oh me, me, me, me oh my
Oh when I look
When I look at my life
Oh me, oh my
When I look at my life, yeah, la la la
Crowded by the city, all around me
Need some silence from the loud
And noisy crowds
And I’m trying to catch a breath
Through the air of death
Can’t see the sun for the clouds
Those dirty clouds
And the night has no compassion
For your actions
When you’re trying to get away
From the hard day, yeah
And I need someone to talk to
Apart from you
But I guess that’s just the way
Come what may, oh
Oh me, yeah, oh my
Oh me, me, me, me oh my
Oh when I look
When I look at my life
Oh me, oh my
When I look at my life
Oh God
Are you there
Are you there
Are you there
No, no, yeah
God
Are you there
Are you there
Are you there
Yeah
Well are you out there
Are you there
Are you there
Are you there
If so where are you hiding?
I’m having trouble finding you
Oh me, and oh my
Oh me, me, me, me oh my
Oh when I look
When I look at my life
Oh me, oh my
When I look at my life
Oh God
Are you there
Are you there
Are you there
No, no, yeah
God
Are you there
Are you there
Are you there
No
Well are you out there
Are you there
Are you out there yeah yeah
Are you out there yeah yeah
Are you out there
Are you out there
Are you out there
