Lost on the Dock

When I shot this photo my main objective was to show off some more of the amazing creations you’ll find at the Vintage Fair and various other events across the grid. Okay, done. Then I though about what to write and I spent over an hour on YouTube looking for the perfect song, but nothing quite resonated with the photo. So, I decided to just ramble. Yep, That’s right…I’m going to ramble on about absolutely nothing. How long will you read these words about me writing about nothing? *laughs* I can’t imagine you’ll last too long, unless you a glutton for meaningless words. My mind is just all over the place this morning and I can’t even settle on a topic. Its Friday and I have so much to do in both world that my my is just spinning with ideas, but none of them will land…so, that’s all. Yep, I’m all out of deep thoughts this morning. Hell, I can barely get a regular thought to sit still and there’s no time for a nap today. I wish you all a fantastic weekend though. ♥

Pug Life

Alright, get ready for a journey down the rabbit hole of Sady’s mind, once again, because this post is all about the stuff and how my mind put it all together…I’m just going to write stream of consciousness here, soooo…buckle your seat belts, its going to be a helluva ride!
Okay, so I have three pictures to show you, because I’ve got soooo much to go over with you! First off, let me mention the five main designers I’m trying to showcase here. We’ve got super cute hair from Mina at FaMESHed, a rad tattoo from RedFish at Kinky, a super sexy outfit from le fil casse for the Arcade, some of Bueno’s arcade set, AND some of the She Pop Band Set that unKindness released recently at REWIND! It really wasn’t my intention to mix soooo many great designers into one scene, but sometimes things just fall together that way, ya know?
Okay, so this first picture *points below* is the whole scene with all the stuff, me, and lots of little extras I gave the my Pug Life scene. If you’re going to do a post called PugLife, you gotta have some pugs, right? So, purple and black are the base colors, but I couldn’t stop there…I had to add others. So, this is a smorgasbord of stuff that I really thought worked well together. It might be a bit cluttery for some, but I have yet to tear down this scene, because I like it sooo much! Oh and I have a weakness for signs, especially neon for some reason. I have no explanation for it and none in real life, but as Josh pointed out. Its not really that easy to own a lot of neon in real life, is it? I dunno, I know I don’t have any, never have. Okay, okay, I like shiny things, sue me!

pug life2

So, one of the things I did was use pieces from the She Pop Band Set, that unKindness released recently at REWIND, in a different way. I saw the drum set and thought it would make the perfect way to display my MishMish pugs! Naturally that led me to slap the keyboard and guitar on the wall. Music is a huge part of my life, but I’ve got not musical talents whatsoever! I’m all about thinking outside the box…actually, I’m not sure I know how to think inside the box. *laughs*
You’ll also notice the gorgeous outfit I’m wearing and by sharing multiple pictures you can see it from other angles, as well as the sweet little tattoo that runs up and down both my legs, front and back. Plus, how freaking adorable is this hair?!?!?! I know, I know…too freaking cute!

pug life3

I just couldn’t decide which picture best showcased everything I wanted to show you, so I decided it was time for multiples. I haven’t done multiple pics in a while and rarely does more than one show up on my Flickr page. However, this time will be different. I’m going to take the chance and post all three this time around, because I really want you everyone to see all this good stuff. Maybe I’m crazy…yeah, okay, we know I am…its even been certified…I know…you must be shocked. *laughs*
Yeah, so I’ve rambled on mindlessly about all the awesome stuff I’m wanting to show off and its not too often that I go on and on about the photos and the stuff this way…or cram so much into one post, but c’mon, you gotta admit, its pretty awesome, right? Oh just be nice and agree, cuz I’m excited!

Stick a Knife In It

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” ~Mohandas Gandhi

This is a lesson that took me ages me to learn. I had to learn that I had more power over how I feel than anyone else. I had to learn that forgiveness does not mean forgetting. I had to learn that holding onto resentments is like carrying rocks in my pocket and that each resentment I carry is just another rock. How many rocks must one soul carry until they learn to start letting them go? I had to learn that anger is a secondary emotion. Its one we choose, because its more comfortable than the fear and/or pain behind it. There will be some that read this and disagree, but that simply means they haven’t learned these lessons yet. Some never will. I know these things to be true. I know them to be as true as my weight and the scars on my skin.
Learning to forgive, despite the pain and/or fear certainly is not easy. It doesn’t mean you have to find love in your heart for those that have scorned you. It means you have to find love in your heart for yourself. Enough love to stop giving more power to those that hurt you. It means taking the power away from those that do not deserve it. I recently found out that someone that I once counted among my closest friends has been telling lies about me. He’s told innumerable people that I was trying to sleep with him and that’s why he quit being my friend. Those that know me…that really know him…they know that simply isn’t true, but there are plenty of people out there that are listening and believing his lies. It hurt. It still does, but there’s nothing I can do about him, his lies, or those that choose to believe him, except forgive him and let it go.
Will I ever trust him again? Will I ever be his friend again? Of course not. Learning to forgive and let go does not color me a fool. It simply strengthens me and lightens the load on my soul. I will never understand his reasons for that lie. He could have simply told the truth. We had an argument, we both felt the other person was unreasonable and he chose to walk away rather than talk it out. He could have said that I threw the friendship away, as that may very well have been his understanding of the situation. However, he chose to spread rumors and lies about me instead. Again, I admit that it hurt.
By forgiving him, I drop those rocks of resentment with his name on them, and I lighten the load on my soul. In the end, I am the stronger one, because by lightening my spiritual load I strengthen it at well. He is but one example of how people have stabbed me in the back. There are many others, but I must forgive them, as well. For its my spirit that I must care for and it is my responsibility to lighten that load. I have far more serious matters going on in my life that worrying about this man and his lies or anyone else that chooses to hate me for no genuine reason. So, to him I say, “I forgive you, here’s my back, stick a knife in it if you must, but you will NOT break my spirit or rape my soul.”

Would You Rather…Wednesday

Would You Rather….Wednesday

Would you rather be able to talk with animals or be able to speak all foreign languages? Well, this is a pretty easy one for me, because I don’t really like people that much. *laughs* I mean, I like some people, but I’m not trying to talk to everybody and anybody. I’m a bit of a recluse, but I absolutely adore animals and would love to speak and communicate more effectively with my pets and any other animals that cross my path. Dr. Sady Doolittle at your service! Yes, I rather like the sound of that. I actually wanted to a be a veterinarian until I was in the fourth grade and watched the vet stick a thermometer up my cat’s ass. That was the end of that dream, right there.

animal party1

Just imagine if you could talk to animals, how much more interesting parties would be. Instead nationalities and races, I’d literally have different species and we would dance…and laugh…and laugh…and tell stories…the cat would yawn and tell us how boring we all are, because lets face it..cats are assholes. The sheep would be looking all paranoid knowing I have welsh friends like Rom and Tally. We’d all have to watch the raccoon, because everyone knows he double dips his chips. The music would have to be extra loud…because…well…the wolf thinks he can sing. The goat is especially fun for he laughs at all the worst jokes. If you started off thinking languages, bet you changed your mind now, huh?

animal party3

Alright, so please reply on any social media you find the blog on and let’s see what you’d rather do. Meanwhile, there’s so much goodness to show off in these pictures. I had to multiples to show it all off. I have tons of critters from Jian and all of these are from that amazing store, but don’t think this is all they have, because they have tons more stuff! Check out their mainstore and take some lindens with you, because if you like animals in your SL, you’re going to fall in love!

Country or Southern

Most often when people hear that I’m from Alabama, they assume I’m a country girl. That really couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m an Army brat. We moved a lot, but whenever my father was stationed stateside, he would be at Redstone Arsenal which landed us in one of the most diverse and technologically advanced city in the state, if not THE most. Its got a slight small town feel but with a population of 350,000 people, this area is anything but “country.” That’s not to say we don’t have our fair share of rednecks. Afterall, it IS the South, but I’ve always lived in the city or suburbs. *laughs*

country-girl2

Because of the stereotypes, as a child I was embarrassed and worked very hard to sound as “normal” as possible. Which to be fair, wasn’t too hard, considering by the age of 10, I had spent six year of my life in Germany. (No, I can’t speak German.) As I’ve grown older, I’ve grown to embrace my hometown and the accents that come with it. However, around here I get asked where I’m from, because unless I’m drunk, mad, or super tired…I don’t have much of an accent. *laughs*

So, as usual there’s an abundance of goodies at events going on across the grid, so get on out there and round em up, cuz there’s simply no excuse not to be on point at all times. Happy Shopping!♥

Princess Sady

Once upon a time, in a land not so far away…ok, so it was my virtual backyard! Back to the story, stop interrupting. *winks*
*clears her throat* Once upon a time, on sim not so far away, lived a simple little shopping junkie by the name of Sady. One unsuspecting day she was presented a magical garment by the queen of glamour, Cynthia Ultsch from the land of Cynful, where upon magical things began to happen. Her hair grew long and luxurious as she was touched by the Hairy God Mother aka Lilly Herberg.

cynful-phoenix-c884

Suddenly, she was a princess and deer from far and wide…okay, from all over the sim…came to her, seeking protection. Protection from what you ask? Well, you see there were some very evil hunters across the grid…they were savages and known for their grilling of all things marvelous like cute little goats and even Santa Claus! Yes, truly evil hunters…*nods*…like totally, really bad.
Knowing the deer were depending on her new powers and regal beauty, duh, to keep the hunters at bay, she threw up hands, both left and right, as the hunters approached and said, “Nay, farewell thee, felonious Felicias…your kind are not welcome here. Be gone.”

cynful-phoenix-c883

Just like that and with a power much like that of Darth Vadar, a force was whipped across the land keeping the evil hunters at bay….ok, they were ban lines and they were sent back to their corner of the sim…would you please stay with me and stop being so literal…sheesh. Can’t a girl tell a fairy tale in a virtual world of make believe? *giggles* The point is they went away and as they returned to their corner of the grid with their proverbial tails tucked between their chubby little thighs (I’m so dead.) she flipped them the sweetest little bird she ever did flip, “Ciao!”

cynful-phoenix-c882

And the lovely deer lived safely ever after…well, until Sady logged out and Grace came back to claim her escaped venison. -_-

Feeling Posh & Foxy

For the past few days, I’ve been so sick. I’ve spent a small percentage of my waking hours trying to be productive, but after a few hours I am just absolutely drained. My body insists on shutting down. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve nodded off in front of my screen. Although, I am a massive whiny little baby when I’m sick and one unfortunate friend was receiving an almost play by play of my woes last night, as it was the worst one so far.
However, as I laid in bed, sleeping, waking, sleeping, watching Netflix, and feeling as though death was surely preferable to my plight, I couldn’t help but think of all the things I could be doing with my time rather than lying there completely miserable. Not to mention all the amazing ideas I had while in my medicinal haze, none of which I remember now. *sigh*

posh-foxy2

One thing is for sure, I was super excited to get these pictures of the new Posh sweater and skirt coming atcha from ChicModa at Oh My Gacha! I was feeling Posh and Foxy, so my little companion and I  set out to TaKe Heart, an absolutely gorgeous sim for a few photos…and here are the results. As always there are some killer events going on all across the grid, so may the poshness and the foxy feelings follow you as you shop, which naturally they will. *winks* Until next time, I’ll see you around the grid!♥
