Tis the season for all things Christmas, regardless of your religious beliefs or lack thereof. We are being bombarded with Christmas decor. However, now that Halloween and Thanksgiving have passed, I’m ready for it. I don’t really celebrate it in RL, but I do so love decorating and being festive in SL and there’s no better time than now to grab all the Christmas goodies. Tannenbaum is official open and there’s an abundance of gorgeous items for your home, your yard, and your lovely little mesh bodies. Here’s a sample and be sure to keep watching as there will be lots more posts filled with Tannenbaum goodies coming your way. ♥
I’ve spent an entire day sorting through my inventory. I look at it and feel as though I’ve barely made a dent. I’m quite blessed to have so much and I am grateful, believe me. Yet, I’m quite furious with myself for allowing it to become such a dreadful mess in the first place. To make matters worse, as I drop folders into sub folders, I know that those sub folder are in desperate need of sorting themselves. Worst of all? Even if I did not shopping or take on anything new until I completely sorted this inventory (never going to happen)…it’s only going to start AGAIN with the next event! It’s worse than a family kitchen…the work will never be done!
While technically it may indeed be Autumn, it certainly doesn’t feel like it in my part of the world. It’s still too hot and humid outside to function and breathe at the same time. I’m so ready for Fall its not funny. My cardigans and favorite sweaters are calling to me, just waiting for the minute I can toss them on over a tank top or tee, whenever I take the dog out. So, while yes, I’m showing you my tits again while showcasing the Maxine Dress from Narcisse, I thought I’d also fit a fall theme into the photo….hence the pumpkins and the gorgeous acorn & leafy jewelry set from Empyrean Forge, better known as the Homecoming Set. Though I can take no credit for the decor as I was being rather stealthy when taking this picture at Fall Trace. *giggles*
So, Friday was my birthday and on Thursday night, Cynthia of Cynful presented me with the jeans you see in this post. Officially my new favorites, not just because I’ll never forget the name of them, but because they fit like a glove. I love these jeans so much! I can’t imagine that every thoughtful detail in these jeans was about me, but I certainly do appreciate every detail. The stitching, the ASS…omg, Josh’s response to my jeans was, “I want Cynthia to make my ass look THAT good!” To which I quickly replied, “SHE’S MINE AND YOU CAN’T HAVE HER!” *giggles* I will however generously share her with the rest of the ladies on the grid…you’re welcome. Ok, real quick about the details again…not only did she do her standard Belleza-Hourglass-Maitreya sizes, but she was thoughtful enough to create two fits for flat feet and heels. As I recently acquired some adorable toe rings (not pictured) from Astralia…I’ve been running around barefoot all weekend.
Ok, so I had a full two day hangover! Listen, I have a problem, okay? I love tequila and it loves me…well, it used to. I think we broke up this weekend. Tequila is an abusive lover….*nods*…just seduces me over and over until before I know it, I’ve consumed an entire 750ml bottle of 1800 Gold. *hangs her head* I know, I know….I should be dead. A skype call did happen, but not like my old ones where I’d call everyone on my damn list…lol. This time I had Tracy and Grace watching out for me, trying their best to keep me in check. I still managed to say some pretty embarrassing things, luckily the company I keep these days is pretty good and I’m not too worried about being judged or them running about blabbing about my drunken rhetoric. God bless, Dusty, Joe, Tracy, and Grace for having to hear me puke my guts out…even though every time I could take a breath between heaves I’d call out, “I’m okay….” and “I’m sorrry.” To which I could hear them laughing, as I’m sure they found it quite humorous that I was worried about them having to listen to me puke. I’m pretty sure at one point I passed out briefly as I was informed later that I was basically afk for about 45 mins. Needless to say, Saturday when I woke up I still felt drunk and very sluggish. While sober by Sunday, my mind was still a ball of fuzz. Monday is here now and I’m feeling back to my normal oddball sober self. Whew! I honestly don’t think my ass will be getting drunk ever…okay, for a very long time. *nods seriously*
I had a fantastic birthday and I am so grateful to all of my amazing and wonderful friends that found time to celebrate with me and to those that were quite sad that they weren’t able to make it. I am truly blessed with some of the most amazing friends on the grid. Never thought I could say that about so many people in SL and actually mean it. ♥
Ya know, anyone with a Facebook account whether its RL or SL sees far more than their share of drama, add the aspect of life on the grid and its going to be ten times worse, but here’s the thing. If you don’t want to be caught up in it, then stay out of it. Sure, you can grab some popcorn and watch it all unfold like a bad episode of some Real Housewives of Hell, but don’t you have better things to do with your time? I know I do. Sure, I’ve read stuff on friend’s walls and wondered who is that about….and I’ve had people come running to me with gossip, but do you see me running off at the mouth to anyone outside of the cunts (Kess, Tracy, & Grace)? No, you don’t. You also don’t see the four of us mixed up in everyone’s drama. Sure, we’ve each had a bit of our own here and there, but the more power you give rumors and lies, the stronger they become…the bigger the story gets…the more people get involved. Look, if someone calls you a whore and you’re insulted by it…well, you’re being silly. Either you are a whore or you’re not. If you are, why you mad? They didn’t lie. If you’re not a whore, then why you mad? You gonna be mad if they call you a chair? Are you a chair? Right. So, take a backseat, let the drama llamas drive…and enjoy the scenery and the ride. Let someone else navigate through all that bullshit.
**BTW, before y’all get started…this is not aimed at anyone in particular, its just another day in the second life.**
It was the end of summer and she had decided to take a walk down to the Charcuterie for some of Peter’s famous sausages. They would be perfect with the apples she had picked that morning. As she walked along the dirt road she came across the most adorable little piglet, she scooped him up just as she approached Peter’s place. The little pig was so cute as she squealed in her face.
She smiled lovingly at her new pet, “I shall call you Wilbur, but you have to promise not to bring home any friends named Charlotte!” As she approached the door for Peter’s it dawned on her that she should take her new pet home first, “This is no place for you, Wilbur! No place at all!”
She had stayed out all night with only a clutch. She finally understood why women carried such big purses and all the stuff she could have fit in one to avoid this walk of shame. It was pretty obvious she’s been out all night. Her updo was unraveling and the sunglasses hardly hid the fact that she was far too overdressed for any activity at this hour of the morning. She convinced herself that if she got coffee and a pastry she could mimic Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Except there was no Tiffany’s, there was only four more blocks from the coffee shop to her house.
It would seem that while spring came early in my area, summer arrived on time. Now it seems that summer might be leaving on time, as well. This is highly unusual for where I live. August and September seem to be two of the hottest months of the year. Don’t get me wrong. July and August were more than happy to carry the load this year, but the temperatures have dropped significantly this past week and according to the weather predictions, they won’t be climbing back up anytime soon. I don’t mind, because I absolutely love fall. Plus, in SL its whatever season I want it to be! I’m pleased as punch to bid farewell to summer…its about to be cardigan season!!!
