Is happy boring?

Is happy boring? I ask because when I’m happy I struggle more creatively, but when I’m sad or depressed my creativity flows like an abundant river. I was talking to another blogger and we were discussing how much better our sad photos seem to perform on flickr. This got me to thinking about how I struggle with topics to write about when I’m happy. I used to write tons of poetry, but that all stopped when I got married. I didn’t know how to write proliferous poems about love and happiness. Here I am again, feeling happier than I have in years, but I struggle with topics to write about. Yet, that’s the compliment I get most about my blog….that people like that I write. *sighs*

Perfect Combination

Now, I know that I’m holding the naughty jar of NoTella, but I can’t help but think about the good stuff in real life that we so commonly know at Nutella. Man, that stuff is like the word fuck…it goes with everything…ok, almost everything. I suppose it wouldn’t be good with fish or roast beef, but a single spoonful of this stuff makes a very satisfying dessert. Stoners have long known that a jar of Nutella is their best friend when the munchies come a calling. One of my favorite ways to eat it has always been on one of those buttery crackers that most of us know as Ritz. That perfect combination of salty, buttery, and sweet for taste plus the creamy and crunchy for texture. Purrfection!

Another Time Zone

Dating in Second Life can be tricky, especially when there are major time zone differences. Joe and I are making it work, but its not always easy. There’s a 7 hr difference between us and he’s got a pretty busy real life schedule. Fortunately for us, I’m available more often than I’m not. So, I’m able to work around his schedule more. Sometimes though, real life gets in the way and this picture epitomizes how it can feel sometimes when planning a surprise for the one you love in another time zone.

No Hat, Yet, Sis!

Would you look at that? Sady got herself a Valentine! Well, he found me, but the point is we’re together and we’re happy. It’s been a very long time since I seriously dated anyone in Second Life. I tried to date a friend of mine a few months ago, but that just didn’t work out for us and he eventually left Second Life. He even gave me his avatar. That’s two guys that have given me their avatars now…so, if you need a male model, hit me up! LOL Hmm, maybe I should change my name to the Black Widow! RIP Joe, you’re doomed now! Nah, I really like Joe…I might even love him…*blushes*
Alright, so I’ll fill you in…cuz everyone keeps asking the same question. “How did you meet?” Well, we actually met years ago at a club named Exodus that my sister owned. (Technically, she still owns it, but she closed it a few years ago.) Apparently he was a noob then and I was too caught up in some other bullshit to remember him. Though, to be fair, I did remember his name. Turns out he also dated a dear friend of mine. The minute I realized he had dated my friend, Tempy, I had to talk to her. Unlike so many people in the world, I don’t like to date men that my friends have dated. (Another reason I’ve been single so long.) Well, not only did Tempy give her blessing, but she’s become our biggest cheerleader. In fact, I’m not sure that I would even be with him now if not for her encouragement. Ffs, I got off track again! Why didn’t you stop me? I know…I know, you couldn’t if you tried.
Okay, so he hit me up on Facebook with a joke about a meme I had shared. He had my attention straight away with his sense of humor. From there, we met inworld to hang out…and well, we’ve been inseparable ever since. He’s pretty freaking amazing. He’s made me laugh, cry, yawn (time zones suck), and most of all…he’s made me very very happy. He’s even battled my demons (an ongoing job, sadly) and nothing I’ve done has run him off yet. *grins*  Now here’s the part that my sister will latch onto…he’s even mentioned a wedding..*shudders*…I told him he can propose on our one year anniversary. Until then, no more wedding talk…so to Kess, “NO HAT YET, SIS!”

Too Numb

Never came around to make this house into a home
Put you on a pedestal and sat you on a throne
I found all your skeletons, your closet full of bones
I see you take pride in bloody eyes, I know you’re stoned

I can hear resentment in your tone
Said I’d never make it on my own
Maybe I’m just better off alone
Too dumb to deal
Too numb to feel the knife in my back

Judas, hey
Oh, oh, Judas, hey
Judas, hey
Oh, oh, Judas, hey

I can see you coming from about a mile away
And all the mystique of your pretentiousness is fading
Reminiscing all the backwards ways you’d make me stay
Begging me for thread, I think you need to change your brain

How’s it feel?

Found you when your heart was broke
I filled your cup until it overflowed
Took it so far to keep you close (Keep you close)
I was afraid to leave you on your own (Ooh)

I said I’d catch you if you fall (Fall)
And if they laugh, then fuck ’em all (All)
And then I got you off your knees
Put you right back on your feet
Just so you could take advantage of me

Tell me, how’s it feel sittin’ up there?
Feelin’ so high, but too far away to hold me
You know I’m the one who put you up there
Name in the sky, does it ever get lonely?
Thinkin’ you could live without me
Thinkin’ you could live without me
Baby, I’m the one who put you up there
I don’t know why (Yeah, I don’t know why)
Thinkin’ you could live without me
Live without me
Baby, I’m the one who put you up there
I don’t know why (I don’t know why, yeah, yeah)

Seasonal Confusion

Well, its still hotter than hell where I live and getting hotter by the day, which is completely insane. The predicted temperatures for September 30th are 95°f/35°c!!! That’s not right!! However, Autumn is setting in over the grid and I am loving it. I am more than happy to decorate and explore, pretending that its Fall…so long as I’m at my desk. *laughs* This cockamamey weather can suck an egg! Of course, I complain about the heat, but come wintertime…while my friend, Dusty, is dealing with 6ft of snow, I’ll be sitting pretty with no ice or snow in sight. Oh it will be cold, no doubt about that, but we won’t be shoveling snow. Even if we get some, it won’t likely last more than a few hours.
In the meantime, I’ll suffer through Mother Nature’s seasonal confusion and wait for the temperature to drop. As soon as it does, I can break out my apple cinnamon candles, my cardigans, and my favorite cozy sweaters.

Foreplay

It’s no secret that I love doing collaborations with other bloggers, but finding the right time, scene, pose, clothes, etc….its not as easy as one might think. Well, finally, after months of saying we would, Tiffany Parkin and I got together, throwing caution to the wind, we did our first collaboration. I’m calling it foreplay, because I want to do another, sexier more tantalizing photo in the future. Poor Tiffany has been dragged into my world since the night we did this photo and I fear she’ll never be the same. *grins* You can find her version by clicking her name above and it will take you directly to her blog. ♥

In Full Bloom

Sometime last year, someone told me that my Flickr was all black and white. I wasn’t quite sure what they meant, but they went on to explain that they meant my color palette. That most of the outfits I chose to blog were black or white. I hadn’t really thought about it that much, but looking at my Flickr through their eyes, I started to understand. The funny thing is…I love color! Lots of colors. Ask me my favorite color and I’ll tell you that it depends on what it’s for. I think I lean towards black and white in SL, because of how I tend to take photos.
Since then, I have been introducing more and more color into my photos, but now with Spring in full Bloom (see what I did there?), you all are about to see a lot more colors in all of my photos. Some of you will probably be wondering what the hell happened to me!?! *giggles* Oh and if you didn’t get the little joke up there, check the credits…you’ll get it. *chuckles*

Kind Strangers

If your car has to break down in the middle of nowhere it never hurts to have a sexy mechanic working on your car.

On a more serious note, never let it be said that there are not some perfectly kind strangers in SL willing to help out another stranger for a few minutes. I had originally gone to this sim, thinking that I would take a photo in a diner or something along those lines. Then I say the classic mustang and a very nice looking avatar posed as if he were working on it. Sadly, his entire profile was in Portuguese, so to Google translator I went. One thing was certain, he was happily taken and didn’t like girls who disrespected that. Noted. In English (he can translate, too, right) I told him that I wasn’t flirting but would he mind staying put for a blog photo I wanted to do. He kindly obliged and the moment I was done, he poofed away. No friendships made, no advances from either of us, no more conversation….just two photographers passing in the light. *giggles*

So, I owe a huge thank you to  Hendrick Kos (SirAatrox) for being so kind to a complete stranger. It’s people like him that restore just a teensy bit of my faith in human kind.
