F*ck Yeah

Some people say I cuss too much and that cussing shows a lack of a better vocabulary or that it’s a lazy way of expressing yourself. I say, “Fuck off!” I like cussing. I especially like the fact that so many people allow a word to offend them.  A word! Not a racial slur, not a hate filled word, just a word…that is one of the most versatile words in the ever so eloquent English language. Yes, it is a legitimate word. It has earned its place in the dictionary with all sorts of examples and you can even find its origin if you look. Seriously, Google your favorite online dictionary, it’s in there!
I’m an adult, I cuss. I’m a responsible adult that knows there’s a time and place for everything. So, no, I’m not going to scream FUUUCKKK when I stub my toe in the middle of a mall, but when I’m talking to my dog in my yard I will certainly encourage her to hurry the fuck up. *laughs* So, have a good fucking day! (You can take that whichever way you like.)

fuck yeah

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. ♥

The White Dress

She hated taking the subway so late at night, but she had to get home. She had work tomorrow and there’s no way she’d find a cab at this hour. This is what she gets for going out on a work night. Ugh, the subway always smelled like urine and body odor. She dreaded the train coming to rush that stink into her nostrils, almost as much as she dreaded getting on the train at this hour. There was no way she was sitting on those filthy seats in her white dress. She had managed to keep drinks from spilling on it all night and she’d be damned if she was going to mess it up on her way home.
As she walked down the stairs, she rolled her eyes to herself, why is there always a hooker passed out down here? At least the people didn’t look too shady, maybe she could manage this without getting mugged after all. Yeah, she’d be fine, but her could feel an anxiety attack coming on. She reached in her purse for a Xanax and some strawberry lip-gloss. At least the smell of the lip-gloss with help with the stench of this place.
She managed to make it home without incident. Locking her door, she dropped her purse on the entrance table and made her way to the kitchen for a glass of wine before bed. She made her way to the bedroom and just as she was about to set her wine down, the cat hopped up on the nightstand startling her and the red wine splashed down the front of her dress.

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.

My Echo

My Echo

That primitive sense, resonates
Reality cultivates from within
A reverberation

Pursuing the imagary
Rejected solutions remain

Entirely lost, I refuse the map
I drift on a sea of my ignorance
Anchored by my fears

Surviving with make believe
Hoarding the obsolete
Neglecting the truth

Embracing one world
Disregarding another

I know
I don’t know
My echo

Picnic Party

She had arrived at the park early to set up the annual picnic for her college friends. She had set everything up just right and was just lazing about watching nature and reading. She could hardly concentrate as she was so excited. She hadn’t seen some of them in ages and this was their own special reunion. They had no desire for class reunions and alumni parties. These were the special people that had kept in touch. Sure, most of it was on Facebook or over the phone…a few even used email, but this was going to be a party day. She had the best wines, cheeses, sandwiches, lemonade, fresh bread, and plenty of blankets and pillows for people to pair off to have private conversations if they wanted.

the picnic

As she lied there reading her book, she began to wonder if she had forgotten anything. Oh dear, did she have the right date? She quickly pulled out her phone and confirmed the date. Whew, that would have been a mess! She was so nervous….what if HE showed up? What if he didn’t? What if he brought a date? Why did she sign up for this? What was she thinking?
She poured herself a glass of wine and decided it was too late now, just drink and relax. Its just a picnic in the park. Yes, it would be a fun day and if no one showed up, well, she’d just invited strangers to partake and she’d make new friends. Yes, that’s what she’d do….and she’d have another glass of wine.
Eventually her friends did show up. HE showed up…without a date or a wedding ring.
