So, with all the hubbub about Halloween and so many countries believing this is strictly a United States thing, I wanted to do a little digging into the history of it all. Turns out we can thank the Irish, the Canadians, and Hollywood for the whole idea of Trick or Treating that we all know today. Rather than trying to explain this all myself, I’ve attached a short five minute video that explains it far better than I can. Enjoy!!

‘Cause I’m my own soulmate (Yeah, yeah) I know how to love me (Love me) I know that I’m always gonna hold me down Yeah, I’m my own soulmate (Yeah, yeah) No, I’m never lonely (Lonely) I know I’m a queen but I don’t need no crown Look up in the mirror like damn she the one One, one, one, one, one, one (The one) Like damn she the one One, one, one (The one) That bitch in the mirror like yeah, I’m in love Love, love, love, love, love, love (In love) Like yeah, I’m in love Love, love, love (In love) Look up in the mirror like damn she the one And she never tell me to exercise We always get extra fries And you know the sex is fire And I gotta testify I get flowers every Sunday I’mma marry me one day True love ain’t something you can buy yourself True love finally happens when you by yourself So if you by yourself, then go and buy yourself Another round from the bottle on the higher shelf

‘Course you love me, you don’t know me But I got news for you, I came broken Ego issues, my head is swollen I got a million chips on my shoulder But if you stay despite all I showed you Then maybe you don’t need freedom, freedom I guess I take it, heartbreaker A title, I can’t shake it, can’t fake it I guess I take it, heartbreaker A title, I can’t shake it, can’t fake it (yeah-yeah-yeah) Baby, I’d rather be hard to love Than easy to leave, you should believe me I’ll make you need me (whoo) I’d rather be hard to love Than easy to leave, you should believe me I’ll make you need me Go deep, baby, go deep I love it when your roots go deep so I know you won’t leave Go deep, baby, go deep I love it when your roots go deep so I know you won’t leave Go deep, baby I like being ugly, that way if they love me I know that they love me for real (whoo) I like being ugly, that way if they love me I know that they love me for real (Listen) I like being ugly, that way if they love me I know that they love me for real (woah-woah) I like being ugly, that way if they love me I know that they love me for real
I never should have called ‘Cause I knew you’d leave me But I didn’t think you could do it so easily I never should have held your hand On that cold rainy night ‘Cause, further along, it would cause another fight Stranger, that’s all I see When I look into your eyes A soulmate who wasn’t meant to be Stranger, who knows all my secrets Can pull me apart and break my heart A soulmate who wasn’t meant to be
Years ago, many many years ago, back in my very young, wild and single days, I used to love going to the laundromat with my roommate. We’d make a day of it and we always had so much fun. We were a wild pair. We’d drag all our laundry down the local laundromat, grab a couple of Diet Pepsis and get to work. The best part was waiting on the clothes to dry. We’d sit on the counter and chat. Sometimes we’d even have a bit of a picnic. There was a sandwich shop right around the corner, so if it was one those big laundry days, we’d grab some lunch for our countertop picnic.
It’s funny how you can have such fond memories of something that just felt like a necessity at the time. It certainly feels like a lifetime ago. Well, it might be someone’s lifetime ago, considering I was around 21 at the time. *laughs* Now, I can’t even remember the last time I went to a laundromat. My anxiety keeps me in the house as much as possible and lucky for me, I have a washer & dryer in my kitchen!
This past weekend, I left my blogging haven aka my platform, and I went to two parties at Burrow Company! Yep, two!! I was in a great mood and for good reason. There were two 80s themed parties. Okay, the first one was a DJ set by my gorgeous, talented friend, Phen (who also happens to be a blogger). She played songs from 1980 and it was so much fun! The best part is that I was totally ready for Harlow’s big 80s party later that night, so I was able to rock my Madonna look at both parties. (If you clicked Madonna’s name there, you’ll see my inspiration.) I knew other people would do lots of bright colors, but that’s not really how I remember the 80s. So, I wanted to go for one of Madonna’s edgier looks.
I knew I had everything I needed in my inventory and I’m rather proud of how it turned out. I mean, its not an exact replica, but that’s not as fun as using a pic for inspiration, anyway. So, all the details are below and in honor of my friends, Harvey & Harlow Holiday, I’ve added a little song at the end. *grins*
Both parties were a blast and I can’t recommend a better place to hang out to chill, to explore, to take photos, but they also have some pretty epic events (big & small)…so while I’m giving this massive shoutout to Burrow Company, I want to make sure my readers know that there’s a huge Valentine’s Masquerade Ball. Click the link for details and I hope to see you there.♥

It’s all about Equal10!! Well, this post at least. I’ll readily admit that I am an event junkie! I love seeing designers from all over the grid all bringing out their latest and greatest in one place. Don’t get me wrong, I love some mainstore releases, too. Let’s face it, I love shopping! The thing about events, for me, is that each event usually delivers a certain flair. Equal10 has quickly become one of my favorites, because more often than not, I can count on at least three or four of my favorite stores to be presenting. This round is most definitely one of those. I did my best to squeeze in as many of my favorites as I could straight away. I mean, look at the list of credits! I love what I’m wearing. I love the pose. I love my surroundings. I actually really love this photo and how it turned out. *winks at her haters* Yes, I used bokeh and an overlay. I know its not perfect and I’m by far no expert photographer or editor, but if you can’t love your own work….how can you expect others to like it? Naturally, with me loving the photo so much, it will probably do poorly on Flickr as that seems to be the trend when I really like a photo. *laughs* That’s just the way the Flickr cookie seems to crumble. The real point of this photo is to show off all the insanely good creations that the designers have shared with us at reasonable prices.

I get so frustrated with people who square off over stupid shit in Second Life. There are so many awful things happening in the world around us. There are people of all ages being raped and traded like toys among rich privileged pricks. Some are children and some of these children grow up…SOME…and some of those grown children have landed on the grid. No, I’m not one of them, but I know more than one. Put down your stupid squabbles over territories and virtual lovers. If you want to walk away, that’s fine, do it. Walk away, but don’t you dare drag their names through the mud for something you did or over some virtual sex or even something equally silly. Just stop it, already. You want to be a real adult? No? Me either, but here we are…that choice was taken from most of us a very long time ago. So, yes, stand up for yourself and walk away from those that make you unhappy. Walk way from them, but hold you head high and leave without making things worse. And when someone walks away from you and makes it perfectly clear that they’re done with you? Let them go. Don’t chase them down demanding explanations. Don’t insist that they listen to your side of the story. LET IT GO! Pour your energy into things that make your life better. Pour your energy into things that make the world better. I assure you that hate NEVER makes anything better. This world has more than enough of it already. Is your soul truly so dark that you wish to feed that monster? I don’t want your answer. Your heart does.
