Why Do I Blog?

So, I did a blog post called “Dangerous Proposition” where I asked my readers to give me topics to write about, because my creative well seems to be running dry these days. The first response I got was from my friend, Troy Nelson. He gave me four topics to start off with and this was the first one. As promised, I’m going to answer the question.
I started blogging for the therapeutic value. It was a creative outlet for both my photography and my passion for writing. Not to mention, I’m rather proud of some of the outfits I put together, so there was certainly some fun in it, too.
Now that I’ve been blogging consistently for over 18 months, I’ll compare it to heroin. This is something I’ve said many times. I blog now, because I’m addicted to it. If a single day goes by that I’m not taking a picture for a blog or at the very minimum working on a scene for a picture…well, let’s just say I’m not so fun to be around. So, there’s the answer to your first question, Troy. I’ll approach your other questions separately, each will be its own blog post.
I’d like to take a minute to thank Troy and Grace for submitting topics so far. I can honestly say, I’m already enjoying the challenge. Keep em coming!!!

I Can Not Find the Words

It’s funny. I have a few friends that say to me, “I don’t know how you always come up with ideas for pictures and something to write about on your blog.” The pictures are no problem. I’m a very visual person, but the words fail me often and I think its obvious. I do so many posts that are barely anything written or simply a song link with lyrics. Today is one of those days, that I simply cannot find the words. However, since the picture makes me look like I’m seeking something off in the distance, being unable to find the words actually kinda fits. *laughs* So, there ya have it….I can not find the words.

Hungover

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. ♥

sweet dreams
Just kill me now, while I’m all cute in my new jeans.

Before He Cheats

Ara and I had been planning on doing a photo together for a while and decided to share the gorgeous Chic Moda Suzie shorts from the last ever Bish Box. The photo sort of took on a life of its own and we ended going all Carrie Underwood on this car. So, there ya have it…another music post, but how could I resist? As usual, the YouTube link and lyrics are provided below. Enjoy!♥

Check out Ara’s blog >>here<< and her Flickr >>here<<

Carries Underwood’s Before He Cheats

Right now, he’s probably slow dancing
With a bleached-blond tramp
And she’s probably getting frisky
Right now, he’s probably buying
Her some fruity little drink
‘Cause she can’t shoot whiskey
Right now, he’s probably up behind her
With a pool-stick
Showing her how to shoot a combo
And he don’t know
I dug my key into the side
Of his pretty little souped-up four-wheel drive
Carved my name into his leather seats
I took a Louisville slugger to both head lights
I slashed a hole in all four tires
Maybe next time he’ll think before he cheats
Right now, she’s probably up singing some
White-trash version of Shania karaoke
Right now, she’s probably saying “I’m drunk”
And he’s a-thinking that he’s gonna get lucky
Right now, he’s probably
Dabbing on three dollars
Worth of that bathroom Polo
Oh, and he don’t know
That I dug my key into the side
Of his pretty little souped-up four-wheel drive
Carved my name into his leather seats
I took a Louisville slugger to both head lights
I slashed a hole in all four tires
Maybe next time he’ll think before he cheats
I might have saved a little trouble for the next girl
‘Cause the next time that he cheats
Oh, you know it won’t be on me!
No, not on me
‘Cause I dug my key into the side
Of his pretty little souped-up four-wheel drive
Carved my name into his leather seats
I took a Louisville slugger to both head lights
I slashed a hole in all four tires
Maybe next time he’ll think before he cheats
Oh, maybe next time he’ll think before he cheats
Oh, before he cheats
Oh

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

Kindergarten Tired

She wasn’t sure how much more she could take or how long she could hang on. The weight of it all was simply too much sometimes. The day had simply consumed her and she was feeling kindergarten tired. You know, when you’re so tired, you’d just lie right down wherever you are and gladly take a nap? Yeah, she was feeling that way, but she had much to do and could only take the time to lace up her amazing new shoes. Naturally while she was bent down to do so she took a little rest on her knee. In the meantime, check out those shoes! *giggles*

The Work Out

Part 4 of the Grace & Sady Road Trip

We’ve been eating more than our fair share of junk food and drinking for all of Ireland. So, when we happened across a gym, we decided to stop and get in a work out. We were determined to get to the beach eventually and we needed to be fit for those bikinis we packed. It was a small town, so the gym was lacking in luxury equipment, but we managed to go a few rounds with a punching bag as well some weight lifting and some squats. Although, I didn’t know that punching bags hit back. OUCH! Damn near knocked us out…and its from the floor that we did squats as we tried to stand up after we were damn near knocked out. Naturally with Grace’s thunder thighs, she needed a little help getting up, but we’re calling it squats. *nods*
gym2 pt4

I might should mention that we were a little stoned while we were at the gym. Lucky for us, the place was pretty deserted. We were able to flirt with the old guy running the place just long enough for him to snap a few pictures of us. As you can see, we worked up quite a swear. *laughs* He even recommended a place down the road where we’d find some good food and a nice place to relax. I suspect he told us about the food so we’d have to come back to his gym. Ha! I don’t think that’s going to happen!
Go on over to Grace’s blog to read her side of the story and stay tuned for part 5!

Totally Zen

Asian themes are all the rage these days and when I saw these shoes from Phedora, I knew immediately that the only real way to do them justice was with my new Zen Garden backdrop. Afterall, there’s nothing more zen than lying naked in the sand with a pair of heels in the air, right? *giggles* What? I don’t know about you, but I feel totally  zen! So, ya know, if you’re feeling stressed or whatever, grab yourself a little zen garden rake and join me in the garden. *grins*

The Broken Clasp

She was just taking a walk in the park. She hadn’t intended on going to the very spot where they first met. She found herself frozen in her tracks as her mind wandered back in time. Remembering his smile and how beautiful she thought he was from the moment she saw him. She smiled as she remembered it was at that exact moment, as if fate had planned it all along, that the clasp on her necklace gave out and her necklace slipped into the shallow pool beneath the bridge. Without hesitation he jumped in, splashing water all over her, but retrieved her necklace. He offered to fix it for her and they headed over to a picnic table where he pulled out his Swiss army knife and got to work. They talked for hours that day and were seemingly inseparable for months after.
Then he was gone, just like that. Such a random and bizarre accident. Part of her wished she had never met him so she would never have to hurt so deeply, but she also knew that her life was far better for having known him. She knew he was a blessing from the day they met and for all their happy times, she could never fully regret that love.
