Yes, I Am

I don’t know too many women that don’t relate to this song, at least parts of it. The only thing I’d change is the part about being a mother, unless you count my fur babies. I’m not a mother and I don’t want to be. I’ve already raised one woman’s son and that didn’t fair too well for me. I won’t do that again. I learned that lesson the hard way. Make no mistake, I’m very much a brat, so we can just replace mother with brat and this fits me to a tee. Youtube link is at the bottom of the page, but here are the lyrics.

Meredith Brooks ~ Bitch

I hate the world today
You’re so good to me
I know but I can’t change
Tried to tell you
But you look at me like maybe
I’m an angel underneath
Innocent and sweet
Yesterday I cried
Must have been relieved to see
The softer side
I can understand how you’d be so confused
I don’t envy you
I’m a little bit of everything
All rolled into one
I’m a bitch, I’m a lover
I’m a child, I’m a mother
I’m a sinner, I’m a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I’m your hell, I’m your dream
I’m nothing in between
You know you wouldn’t want it any other way
So take me as I am
This may mean
You’ll have to be a stronger man
Rest assured that
When I start to make you nervous
And I’m going to extremes
Tomorrow I will change
And today won’t mean a thing
I’m a bitch, I’m a lover
I’m a child, I’m a mother
I’m a sinner, I’m a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I’m your hell, I’m your dream
I’m nothing in between
You know you wouldn’t want it any other way
Just when you think, you got me figured out
The season’s already changing
I think it’s cool, you do what you do
And don’t try to save me
I’m a bitch, I’m a lover
I’m a child, I’m a mother
I’m a sinner, I’m a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I’m your hell, I’m your dream
I’m nothing in between
You know you wouldn’t want it any other way
I’m a bitch, I’m a tease
I’m a goddess on my knees
When you hurt, when you suffer
I’m your angel undercover
I’ve been numb, I’m revived
Can’t say I’m not alive
You know I wouldn’t want it any other way

yes I am

Snack & Other Terms

So, I recently learned a new term on Facebook. Apparently, women are snacks now. I’m not quite sure how that started or why we’re not a full meal or dessert, but its nice to know that men are thinking about eating us. *grins* Okay, so apparently according to the Urban Dictionary, it can go both ways. I just can’t imagine myself or any girls I’m close to ever referring to a man as a snack.
We’ve all heard the word “Bae” and its on that disturbs me to no end, especially now that I’ve done a minute bit of research. According to the Urban Dictionary (clearly a viable source for information) the word Bae is a Danish word for poop. Considering how many Danes are in SL, I can’t help but wonder how amused they must be when someone refers to their romantic partner as poop.
Turns out that ratchet is a mispronunciation of the word wretched. Between you and me, I like wretched much better. However, apparently this started in Louisiana and I’m guessing it was a Cajun accent that made it sound like ratchet and so it spread to various parts of the world.
I’m learning so much!!! In fact, I discovered a whole list of terms used for women that are not so favorable. Some of them are just hate speech, but you can look for yourself…as it came from the most reputable site of all *snickers* the ever knowing and never wrong, Wikipedia!
I think I’m neither ratchet nor bae, but I suppose one might find me appealing as a snack at least in the photo below

Baggage

We all have some sort of emotional baggage. Some are lucky enough to travel light. Some of us have to rent out a storage room to keep up with everything that happens to us. The thing is we definitely need to put it somewhere, otherwise we’re dragging it all around with us all the time and it just weighs us down. We don’t need to carry it around displaying it with pride like, “Oh look at me, I was abused as a kid!” We must learn how to deal with it and once we do, we need to pack it neatly away so that when we revisit it, or these metaphorical boxes in our imaginary closets/storage rooms come crashing down, we can deal with it accordingly. Yes, occasionally it will happen that one or more of those boxes might fall open, but just like photographs in a shoe-box, we need to learn to sift through those memories and realize how far we’ve come. Then shove that crap right back in the box and possibly find a more secure place for it. Then lock it up and guard the key, only offering to open it up and share with people we’ve learned to trust. People we know won’t turn around and use the things they discover like weapons against us down the line.
Maybe I’m waxing too philosophical this morning. Maybe none of that made sense to anyone, but me. Then I again, my blog is my therapy…so what do you expect? *chuckles*

Three C’s, Plus One More

The 3 C’s of Life: Choices, Chances, Changes. You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.

I was checking blogs the other day and one of the bloggers I manage, Luane Meo, had used this quote in her photo. She didn’t elaborate or anything. She simply used to quote. When I approved her post, I told her how much I loved the quote and that I’d probably borrow it for my own blog. However, to be fair, I’d love for you to check out her photo and give it a fav as I had not heard this quote before. I can’t even find where it originated, but I did find on several sites across the world wide web.

I love this quote for so many reasons, but mainly because it can actually be applied to just about any situation. From the simplest of decisions to the most difficult. Thinking about a new hairstyle? Make the choice to take the chance to make that change. It’s just hair, it’ll grow back. Afraid of love, but feeling lonely? Make the choice to be open to taking the chance or stay lonely, right? It’s just one of those quotes that I think can really be a life changer if you apply it correctly. I don’t suggest you use it as justification to hurt someone, but to better your own life.

Of course, my favorite C word is one that seems to offend an awful lot of people, but it’s one that I identify with. I’ll never truly understand why people allow a word so much power over them. Why they allow a simple word to offend them, anger them, or make them cringe. That’s a topic for another post, though, isn’t it?

I Want You

Ever had a crush on someone that you really hardly know, but there’s just something about them that continues to pull you in? Or worse yet, develop feelings for someone that is forever off limits to you? Or the absolute worst, you genuinely love someone that used to love you, but doesn’t love you the way they used to? I’ll let the lyrics of this song do the rest…

Lotte Kestner ~ I Want You

My baby baby
I want you so it scares me to death
I can’t say anymore than “I love you”
Everything else is a waste of breath

I want you
You’ve had your fun you don’t get well no more
I want you
Your fingernails go dragging down the wall
I want you
I woke up and one of us was crying
I want you
You said “little girl I do believe you’re dying”
I want you
If you need a second opinion as you seem to do these days
You can look in my eyes and you can count the ways
I want you
I want you
Did you mean to tell me but seem to forget
I want you
Since when were you so generously inarticulate
I want you
It’s the stupid details that my heart is breaking for
It’s the way your shoulders shake and what they’re shaking for
It’s knowing that she knows you now after only guessing
It’s the thought of her undressing you or you undressing
She tossed some tattered compliment your way
I want you
And you were fool enough to love it when she said
“I want you”
“I want you”

I want you
The truth can’t hurt you it’s just like the dark
It scares you witless
But in time you see things clear and stark
I want you
Go on and hurt me then we’ll let it drop
I want you
I’m afraid I won’t know where to stop
I’m not ashamed to say I cried for you
I want you

I want you
I might as well be useless for all it means to you
I want you
You’ve had your fun you don’t get well no more
I want you
No-one else wants you could want you more
I want you
Every night when I go off to bed
And when I wake up
I want you

I want you
I’m going to say it once again ’til I instill it
I know I’m going to feel this way until you kill it

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

Numb

This morning I don’t have words of my own, so I’ll let Meg Myers say/sing it for me.

Meg Myers-Numb

When all is said and done
Tell me how to write this
Tell me how to fight this war
I’ll keep marchin’ on
Like a broken robot
Money back guarantee
I’m in your custody
But I’m not a criminal, I can be your next big thing
Look at what I’ve become
Silly little monster
Should’ve just held my tongue

I hate the feeling of this weight upon my shoulders
Pushing the pressure down on me
You think you want the best for me but nothing really matters
If you force it won’t come, I guess I’m feeling numb
I guess I’m feeling numb

Sometimes I wish I could fly
Through a secret trap door into another life
Bury my head in the sand
I don’t want to grow up
La la la la la la

I hate the feeling of this weight upon my shoulders
Pushing the pressure down on me
You think you want the best for me but nothing really matters
If you force it won’t come, I guess I’m feeling numb
I guess I’m feeling numb

I’ll play the game
I’ll do everything you tell me
All the losers win in the end
I’ll play the game
I’ll do anything you tell me
All the losers win in the end

I hate the feeling of this weight upon my shoulders
Pushing the pressure down on me
You think you want the best for me but nothing really matters
If you force it won’t come, I guess I’m feeling numb
I guess I’m feeling numb
I guess I’m feeling numb
I guess I’m feeling numb

Can They Truly Be Separate?

I’m a big profile perv. I love to see what people share, how they talk, or whether they’ve decided to keep it blank. Either way, I tend the find the 1st Life tab the most interesting, as so many will put something about keeping RL separate from SL. I assume they mean that they prefer to keep the details of their real lives a secret and quite possibly their second lives are a secret from those in their real lives, as well. However, I am always left wondering does anyone truly believe that its possible to keep them entirely separate?
Isn’t the real you the one typing on the keyboard? Isn’t every thought you share in SL coming from the brain (or lack there of) in your real life head? Don’t you dress to appeal to yourself? How is it possible to be so completely separate unless your entire existence here is a complete and total lie? Even then, you are bound to have a few honest thoughts slip through the cracks. Even a catfish tends to share some truths about themselves.
I suppose its not really important. It’s just something I wonder about from time to time and always makes me look at the people that write that as kind of odd. Why do you need to announce to the world that you’re keeping a secret? As a person with major trust issues, it tends to make me leery of them regardless of their intent and pull away.
