Almost Time

It’s almost time for us to break out the summer clothes and the swimsuits. This year, I’m planning a big spring cleaning project. I’m going through my RL inventory and decluttering my life. Clothes I haven’t worn for more than a year…GONE! Knick knacks with no sentimental attachments or things I don’t LOVE….GONE! Then I’m redecorating my bedroom. I’m going to paint it and rearrange the furniture. I might do the same with my bathroom. As for the pool? Yeah, I’ll leave that to SL, cuz my ass does not go out in public in a swimsuit….*laughs*….there are children there and they will be scarred for life.

Blue’s Angels

All three of us have been anxiously awaiting the final reveal of the newest and possibly the greatest creation from Blueberry yet….Breeanya! As the three of us stood there, posing while I sifted through windlights, we chatted about how much we loved the dress and several story ideas occurred to me, but alas I did not have the focus to full write one. However, I can’t help but share some of the ideas….mostly because of conversations we had.
There once was an angel named BooBooKittyFuck.  She thought she was better than all the other angels cuz in her words…she’s as “Angelic as fuck!”
Once upon a timie there were three angels that protected the gates to Heaven and it burned to the ground.
I love these two women and we had an absolute blast taking this picture. I certainly hope our humor hasn’t offended anyone and if it has….well, I apologize, but that’s who we are…we’re angels! I promise!!! *giggles and hides her crossed fingers behind her back*

Its Pretty Simple

“A broken heart is a broken heart. To take measure is a cruelty.” Cyrus Beene Scandal
(Yes, I’ve been binging on Scandal via Netflix, but when I heard Cyrus say that to Mellie I was moved to tears.)

We all handle our pain and heartaches differently, but at the end of the day it is beyond cruel to compare one’s situation to another. I thought about how differently people react to the loss of love, the loss of friendships…not just the loss of loved ones, but break ups…lost jobs…betrayal. All of these things can completely change a life…even one’s personality.  Why would anyone compare one tragedy to another? Why would someone possibly insist that their plight is worse than another? It saddens me to think that anyone would suggest that their heart break is more painful orheavier than another’s. Why on earth would it even matter? Why suggest to someone that what they are going through can’t possibly be as bad as what you’re going through? I can’t believe that it makes either person feel any better. This can’t be stressed enough, but I think its important to remind each other that we’re all human. We all need encouragement and love. Don’t kick someone while they’re down by suggesting their pain is anything less than what they feel. Please treat each other with kindness, with dignity, and respect. Its pretty simple…treat each other how you want to be treated. ♥

Have Some Water

There are a lot of phrases and terms that seem to come with each new generation. I’m hold enough to remember when “Ooooh BURNNNN” was a big deal and I admit, I said it a lot. Another one I remember was “NOT!” I’m quite sure I’m guilty of overusing that one as well. I’m sure there were many more that I wasn’t even aware of and plenty that struck a nerve. One word that kills me these days is “bae”…you’re not saving syllabils by leaving out the 2nd b, so why? Although, I will admit that when I’m drunk, babe sounds a lot like bae…so maybe they’re just mentally challenged? Nah, they think it’s cute. I get it. I don’t like it, but I get it. My favorite current term is “thirsty,” and never have I seen a word more perfectly applicable in SL. Now, I’m not talking about the way women dress, because come on…it is SL and only here can we walk out of our homes looking and feeling unbelievably sexy AND well dressed, all while showing our undies and barely covering our bits? I’m talking about the way some girls behave. The way they carry themselves and interact with people.
I was talking to someone the other day about how we’ve played SL side by side our RL spouses and seen the way girls will IM them, even with us standing right next to them in SL. Despite the fact that profiles say that he’s taken, that he’s with his true love in RL as well as SL…these thirsty bitches will still IM a man and practically perform oral sex without knowing if he’s even remotely interested. Aside from the complete disregard for other women, which come on…how low must you be to go there? Surely you don’t expect to obtain a loyal lover by luring him away from someone else. Let’s just talk for a minute about how these women will just throw themselves at a man…offering up every little tidbit of themselves all for the sake of…what? Attention? I don’t get it. I’m just not one that wants to go after what isn’t available. Sure, I get it that sometimes friendships lead to things of a less than desirable situation, but that’s not what I’m talking about here. I get it…stuff happens. No one is perfect. However, to knowingly go after a man you know full well is taken on every level? To profess your love to someone who hasn’t offered you anything more than a friendly hello? Girls, please, stop selling yourself so short. If we’d all just act how we want each other to act, just maybe we could all stop looking over our shoulders. A man worth having isn’t going to be swayed by that sort of thing anyway, so what are you really proving to yourself by trying to steal another’s man or even running behind your friends picking up their scraps. Have some water, girl, stop being so damn thirsty. Its really quite sad and you aren’t doing yourself any favors by acting in such a manner. Be kind to one another. Be supportive and encouraging. Be the person you wish others would be…and keep in mind that karma is a real bitch and she fights real dirty. Is that the kind of thing you want coming back to you someday? Trust me, its not. Go forth, be happy, be kind…and above all else? Happy shopping!♥

A Dog’s World

A Dog’s World

There’s a little joke I tell a lot. I can’t remember where I’ve heard it and if you’ve heard it before, just bear with me for a moment. “I feel sorry for people that don’t have dogs. I hear they have to pick up the food they drop.” It always tickles me, because my dogter, Zoey, is always ready to scoop up any tidbits that fall to the floor and will lick a dish clean before it actually gets washed. She’s the most adorable black lab/border collie mix and I’m so thrilled to be celebrating her 4th birthday later this month. For her first birthday, I made her a hamburger patty with cheese, peanut butter, bacon, and gravy. She didn’t know why she was getting a special dinner and new toys, but she sure had a good day.

just-right1

I wanted to talk about her just briefly, because among the many events goin on across the grid, there’s a special one to raise money for pit bulls. I know they are a scary breed for some, but please don’t judge an entire breed for what some really bad humans trained their dogs to do. Judge those monstrous people instead and know that pit bulls can be some of the most loyal and gentle dogs on the planet. Rally to Rescue is a great cause. Its a small event with proceeds going to this particular charity. I’m not sure how many years they’ve been doing it, but this is the 2nd year that unKindness has been involved and they are the store that led me to the Rally in the first place. So, please grab the link from below and give it a look. As I said, its not a big event, but not only can you find some pretty cool stuff (like your very own little pit bull pup), you can help save a life.

They big dog events are still going on, so make sure you’re hitting those up, too, because just when you think you’ve hit them all…another is waiting to open and then another and another. So, enjoy your shopping, stay fierce, and be happy. ♥

Leaving it Behind

“It was a life I didn’t want to leave behind.It was a life I didn’t want to forget.”
Maggie Stiefvater, Linger

Moving on is sometimes the absolute hardest thing to do. Leaving people, places, pets, things, habits…we get attached and for me it always rips at my soul. Sometimes we do the leaving, sometimes we’re the ones being left…but both scenarios can be equally heartbreaking. As 2016 is coming to a close, there are a lot of things I’m walking away from and I refuse to keep looking back. It has been a year of great loss, shock, change, and dismay. I’m ready to leave it all behind, especially the negative emotions that accompanied it. I’ve packed my bags with all the good stuff and to the rest, I bid you farewell.

I’ve shed more than my share of tears for loss this past year. I’ve been blessed with some amazing people in this incredible virtual world. While I’ve had to walk away from quite a few and some walked away from me, the number of truly incredible people that have become such an integral part of my Second Life is astounding. I cannot remember having so many friends in SL that I cannot possibly keep up with everything they’re doing as well as my own life. I love it, though.

leaving-it-behind1

As I march forward into the new year, I plan to do my best at keeping up with those that want to be an active part of my life. I plan to embrace what’s left of my real life and to truly make my mark. Determination and desire, those are my words as I look forward.
And as I look back one final time to all that I’m leaving behind…well, I’m shedding my last tears. I know that 2017 will have its share of heartaches, but I have a feeling that there’s an abundance of blessings waiting and I’m hoping to share them all with my friends and family.

Once Upon a Time…

While I no longer have a close relationship with my father, I was crazy about him when I was a little girl. One of the things that fascinated me was his love for motorcycles. Not street bikes like I’ve been showing you, but dirt bikes. I remember one time he had seven motorcycles, four of them were OSSA and three were Kawasaki. I remember wondering why had more bikes than friends. He would spend hours tinkering with them and weekends were for riding. He did motocross for a long time, then moved on to Enduro racing. At last count, he had over 150 trophies. Not all first place, but back then nobody got participation trophies so at best he was in third place. To this day I love the sound and smell of motorcycle engines.

boom1

When I was in the sixth grade, he surprised me with a bike, boots, helmet, and jacket of my own. He took me out to teach me how to ride and I took off across the tarmack of the abandoned airport where he rode. My mother was along that day and completely freaked out. She insisted that I get off the bike and wait another year. She knew how to ride, so she joined my father on his ride that day while I sat twiddling my thumbs, pouting in the van. While riding she attemtped to jump a small ravine (more like a crack in the earth) and lodged her front tire IN the ravine, which sent her flying over the handlebars and off the emergency room we went. Her failed stunt landed her with three broken ribs and a declaration that her babygirl would never ride a motorcycle! So, much worse happened over the next year that the desire to ride was pushed so far out of my mind that I didn’t think about it again until my father and I were no longer on speaking terms. Now, it’s just another thing I can now do in Second Life that I can’t do in Real Life.
I would love to hear about some of the things you enjoy in SL that you can’t or can no longer do in RL. Toss me a comment here or on Facebook. ♥

What’s Your Poison (part 4)

“Mr Skytower, would you like a reading while you wait?”
poison-pt-4

He opened his eyes to see Sady standing beside a table in yet another change of clothes, only this time she seemed different. Less playful than before, definitely more serious. He wondered what he was waiting for exactly and had he fallen asleep? He’d only meant to rest his eyes.

“You’re quite strange. You have been asleep for over an hour and you’re waiting for your friend to retrieve you. How have you forgotten a call you made only an hour ago?” She tilted her head and looked at him as though he were the odd one in the conversation.

I’m strange? He looks around at the bottles of potions and ingrediants, candles, oija boards, tarot cards, and crystal balls. He chuckles to himself and stands up.

“Yes, you ARE strange, quite strange. Now would you like a reading? Perhaps I can tell you something useful about your future. Please, have a seat, ” she motioned to the table once more.
He shrugged, “Why not, Sady? Its obvious you can read my mind, so don’t bother telling me about my past.” He amused himself as he sat down in the chair, he crossed his arms and slumped back. He had never believed in any of this nonsense in the past and he wasn’t about to start now.

Sady pulled a medium sized crystal ball from a cabinet and sat opposite of him. Reaching across the table, she place her palm on his arm for a brief moment. He felt a slight electrical charge when she did and he pulled away. She gave him a discerning look then ran her hand over the crystal ball.
poison-final

Her eyes grew wide as she peered into the glass. She looked up and opened her mouth to speak….a very loud horn began to blare into his ears. Closing his eyes tight, he covered his ears with his hands, “MAKE IT STOP!! MAKE IT STOP!!” His head was pounding and he felt an intense pressure against his chest. Realizing he was leaning forward, he sat up straight and the noise stopped.

He slowly took his hands from his ears and heard nothing but wind in the trees and crickets. He slowly opened his eyes, but everything was so dark. He rubbed his eyes. What the hell? Where am I? He looked around and realized he was sitting in his car. How the…? What the…? As his eyes adjusted to the darkness, it dawned on him that he had fallen asleep at the wheel. Thank God, I didn’t hit a tree! He chuckled nervously at himself, “That was quite a dream!”

Gacha, Gatcha, Gotcha!

I have no idea who originated the quote or if I even have it right…or even close, but I’ve said it for years never believing for one second that I was being original, “Opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one, but everyone doesn’t want to hear yours.”
gotcha

I’ve been on the grid for almost ten years now and I’ve witnessed a great deal of change. Not just from base prims to flexi to sculpts to mesh, but photography and marketing, too. I’m not claiming to be an expert on all things Second Life. I’m far too easily distracted by occurrences in my own small world. However, I have had the pleasure of once upon a time owning a store, a club, and various jobs along the way. From customer service to management, I’ve tried my hand at quite a few things. This isn’t even my first attempt at blogging. One of the biggest changes I’ve seen is the approach to marketing.
Hunts don’t seem to be as big of a deal as they once were, as a lot of designers just didn’t put as much effort into the hunt prizes and fewer people wanted to participate for that reason.
I remember when Gachas first showed up and I thought they were such a cute novel idea. They quickly became an addiction and even a way of life for some. It took me a while, but I think I’ve finally gotten my personal relationship with these vexing little machines under control. The irony is in the name…although I’m not even sure what is the correct spelling anymore.
A few years ago, I took a year long break from the grid and upon my return Events were all the rage. I’m not sure when they started exactly or which ones were even first, but they’ve certainly become the most common method of shopping now. More focus is placed on events these days than actual brands and some designers don’t even seem to have an actual store, but can be found in all the big events.
Now the newest trend seems to be the monthly boxes containing exclusive content. You pay L$XXXX each month and receive a box of merchandise that will surpass the value, containing exclusive items.
Another trend, that I first noticed happening with Gacha projects, is the colloboration efforts between designers.

Now, these are all amazing and fantastic ideas and I love all watching the innovation. I love all the excitement over new and shiny things being delivered in new and shiny ways! I know a lot of people out there aren’t happy about the monthly boxes. There are people out there that are even anti-gacha…I know, can you imagine? Well, here’s the good news!  No one is forcing anyone to participate in ANY of these events. Period.  No one forces anyone to participate in  Second Life and no one is forcing anyone to shop. So, unless a designer is being unethical, I just don’t believe we should be lashing out at them on social media, which seems to be a trend of its own these days. Plus, it kinda just makes you look childish, mean, and bitter…so put on your big boy/girl panties and try to be enough of an adult to warrant having a social media page in the first place, will ya?
gatcha

I will continue to enjoy my Luxe Box, my gachas, and anything else on the grid that I see fit…judge me if you want, but you have to admit…I look FABULOUS! ♥
