Crazy Weather

My friend, Adalynne, responded to my Challenge to Challenge post. She suggested snowflakes and rainbows. My first response was, “You hate me!” I haven’t been into rainbows since I was a child and they are generally associated with unicorns. I’ve never liked unicorns…ever. I thought about it for a moment then I realized she was merely referring to the weather in Alabama. You see, she lives about 30 minutes away from me and we experience the same weather. If the weather man so much as suggests snow, the stores are evacuated of all their bread, milk, and eggs. For the life of me, I can’t figure out why everyone wants to make french toast when they think there’s a snowstorm coming, but that’s what happens. What’s even funnier is that it rarely does snow and when it does it melts by noon…that’s when we get the rainbow. Thus, snowflakes and rainbows is a perfect way to describe Alabama weather. In your face, AdyCakes! *giggles*

But First…

I’m well known for chasing shinies and squirrels. I readily admit to a lack of focus and it has cost me more than one romantic relationship, along the way. However, let me explain that this is generally what happens to me on a day I’m trying to be productive. In fact, let me just give you examples from real life and second life.

Just this morning, I decided to set up a drawer under my new printer that is just for paper, envelopes, and ink, but first I have to empty the drawer and find a place for everything that was in it. I unload the drawer, take most of the items to my bedside table, where I plan to rehome them. I see my pill pot, so naturally I need to take my pills, but I can’t take them with coffee…so I need to get some ice tea, but first let me finish my coffee. So, I sit back down at my desk with my coffee and a cigarette. I begin checking my email, but first lets see what’s going on in Facebook land. I see a gorgeous photo that takes me to flickr, fav it, then notice I have notifications. I check my notifications, see how my last few photos have been doing, thank people for awards and comments. Then decide I should get my blog post published. So, I start doing that, but first let me say good morning to my friend on discord. (Getting the idea?) Oh, I need to do that blog post, but first let me check to make sure I’m posting the one that needs to be done next. I get that done, now checking Facebook one more time before I share the links over there. OMG, that’s hilarious, let me share that real quick. I finally get my blog published and posted, never did check my email. I finish my coffee, grab my cup, look around the room for any other dirty dishes, grab them and head for the kitchen. I get some tea to take my pills with, but first is there anything quick to eat for breakfast? Nothing quick, I’ll have to make something, but first let me go take my pills. I go to get my pills and realize there’s no bag in my trash can…so off I go in search of the trash bags. I find them, pull one out, lay it on the bed, because now I’ve got the genius idea to make this drawer my cleaning supplies. So, now I’m looking for cleaning supplies scattered about the house….this goes on and on throughout my day. It’s a wonder I get anything done at all, but somehow I do manage, despite all the “But first…” moments.

Purple

“Such a beautiful color I wear upon my skin
And a perfect shade of purple on a flower permanent
And I’m constantly reminded of how I should have changed
And now I can’t stop thinking about the love that slipped away
It slipped away”

Lift Me Up

This post goes out to my closest friends…my truest friends. I won’t list them by name, because they know who they are  and I’m pretty sure they know how much they mean to me. I can’t imagine where I’d be without them. To be honest, there have been a few times that if not for them…I’m not sure I’d be here. So, this song is for you all and know that I love you so freaking much, whether you’re an asshole or a cunt…you all mean the absolute world to me. ♥
For my readers, I urge you to tell your friends today how much you love them, because you never know how much that little gesture will make. ♥
“I’m trying but I keep falling down
I cry out but nothing comes now
I’m giving my all and I know peace will come
I never wanted to need someone
Yeah, I wanted to play tough, thought I could do all this on my own
But even Superwoman sometimes needed Superman’s soul
Help me out of this hell
Your love lifts me up like helium
Your love lifts me up when I’m down, down, down, when I’ve hit the ground
You’re all I need
And if you let go, I’ll float towards the sun
I’m stronger ’cause you fill me up
But when the fear comes and I drift towards the ground
I am lucky that you’re around”

In My Head

So, if you relate the first bit of lyrics below, click the link and you can sing along, read along, or just listen to the rest of the song. I’m not much in the mood to talk about my feelings at the moment, but the song is a clue for those that care. I don’t really expect anyone to…so its another post with lyrics. It’s 4am and this is where I am in my head.

“I know it’s not the same
But I feel it any way
Tell me if that’s okay
No, I’ll be on my way
Should’ve known, now I feel insane
Am I insane?
I’ve waited way too long
Yeah, I know you’ve changed
You have a different face to me
I guess that I was wrong
I’m the one to blame
And that’s a shame, you see
Uhh-uh-uh, you’re in my head
And I keep on forgettin’
Uhh-uh-uh, you’re here instead
And it seems never ending
Uhh-uh-uh-uhh, I know, I know you’ve changed
You don’t feel the same
Uhh-uh-uh, you’re in my head…”

My Sabrina

For those of you that know the song, I hope you heard “My Sabrina” to the tune of “My Sharona” cuz that’s totally how I heard it in my head as I wrote it. *giggles* Once again, this post will only mean something to those that have at least heard of the Netflix show, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Essentially, its a modern, more graphic, more dramatic version of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Or is it? What I found out is that what most of think is the original Sabrina from television is NOT the original at all. In fact, the original Sabrina stems from an Archie comic book released in October 1962. This eventually led to her having her own comic series, Sabrina the Teenage Witch. And THAT was the inspiration for the first television show that was on ABC & WB. However, as Archie and the gang were brought forward through the comic book series, so was Sabrina. As the stories took a turn and started being published under Archie Horror (another branch of the brand, I guess)…the comics went darker and were called The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. These newer, darker stories were the inspiration for Netflix’s new show. It makes perfect sense if you know about Riverdale which is about Archie and the gang already.
All of this brings us to the here and now. I was just making fun of the fact that our newest Sabrina looks exactly as she did on Mad Men. When I found the makings of this entire outfit at the latest round of FaMESHed. So, I present to you Sabrina the full grown witch that is still wearing that short hair and headband, but shorter skirts and bigger tits. You’re welcome. *giggles*

Trust Issues

“I’m just letting you know I’m emotionally unavailable
I’d love to reciprocate your love but I’m incapable
I know that you don’t get it, but I’m just so unstable
And all I could think about is how you’d be unfaithful
You think that I am crazy
But that, that does not phase me
And no, you cannot change me
Just know you cannot save me”
~ Olivia O’Brien – Trust Issues

I really want to elaborate on how deeply the quoted lyrics above hit home. There has only been ONE man in my entire life that has not betrayed me and that was my maternal Grandfather. I honestly do not believe he ever would have either. Granted, I was only 7yrs old the last time I saw him before he died, but the way my mother talks about him…well, I have to believe he never would have betrayed me. He was amazing the had the bluest eyes I have ever seen. Every other man in my life has hurt me by making me feel less than worthy. Every man I’ve dated has cheated either with me or on me. Yes, I said with me. You see, I learned my lesson about the betrayal early on. So, in my early 20s, I wouldn’t date a man that didn’t have a woman at home. Why? Because at that time, I would have rather been the woman he cheats with than the woman he cheats on. I was treated exceptionally well by those men and had no restrictions. They couldn’t very well insist on monogamy from me when they were going home to fuck someone else, now could they?
I’m not saying there aren’t some good, honest men out there. All I can say is that they’ve not been men I dealt with for very long. Perhaps its the type of men I’m attracted to. I can accept that. Regardless of why, it comes down to this one thing. I am incapable of trusting a man romantically. I tried to last year, but like all the rest….that led to betrayal and the shattered remains of a heart that wasn’t even healed from the last betrayal. The promises people make when they think they’re in love….hmmmm, I don’t know, I suppose the old addage, “Promises were made to be broken,” has proven to be true….at least in my life. So, trust issues? Nah, more like a full blown subscription to NTA….never trust anyone.

Uncomfortably Numb

If you are in Second Life and have any type of social media page associated with your avatar’s name, chances are that you’ve read about one designer stealing from another or just selling things illegally. A few months ago, I was crushed when I found out that one of my favorite home & garden stores had been uploading template meshes from external websites and passing them off as her own. I knew something had changed from earlier years, as her poses were no longer lined up. They were clearly tossed in haphazardly and little concern was given to customers that might actually put those animations to use. My immediate reaction was to delete every item in my inventory that I had ever purchased from her. I felt so betrayed. Not only because of all the money I’d spent with her, but because I had spoken with her on several occasions. Each and every time I spoke with her, I would tell her how much I admired her work. Turned out not to be her work at all. Now, in this particular case, she came forward, admitted her wrongs, and subsequently seemed to disappear from all events. Her store is still open, but its been redone completely. I haven’t bothered to check what’s left of her “designs,” because she lost my trust. I have literally spent hundreds of dollars in her store. I will never see that money again. That’s fine, but so far as I know, she won’t see another dime from me, either.
There have been multiple accusations against a popular hair & skin designer on the grid as well. However, in the past when DMCAs have been properly filed against a designer for theft, Linden Labs has been rather prompt in removing both the offending designer and his/her designs. Eventually, all the finger pointing died down and things seem to be going well for that designer. There seems to be no more finger pointing in that direction.
NOW we are being told that one popular hair designer has been stealing from another for over two years! I am mortified and stunned. Once again, I’ve spent hundreds of dollars in this store. I’m sitting here looking at the 70+ folders of hair I’ve purchased from the accused store and I’m left wondering, “Now what?”
I can’t be the only one sitting her uncomfortably numb to the whole designer theft situation wondering where to go from here. Am I obligated to delete all these hairs that I bought in good faith? I’d love to hear how others are dealing with issues like this.

Cat Herder

“It checks you in and kicks you down,
And chews you up and spits you out.
It messes with your sanity by twisting all your thoughts around.
They say it’s blind they say it waits but every time it seals your fate.
And now it’s got you by the balls it won’t let go until you fall.
I was down and out, got up I said “Hey love I’ve had enough!”
I’ve felt pleasure without pain.
My soul you’ll never tame!
Love bites, but so do I.”
Halestorm – Love Bites (So Do I)
I think this is the longest I’ve ever been single in Second Life, aside from when I was married in RL. I’ve dated a bit here and there, but nothing has stuck for more than a week. God forbid I have a life aside from sitting around waiting for someone to complete me. The last two men I’ve dated felt that me not answering within a 30-120 second window was disrespectful. Well, I got news for ya, fellas. I have a life. I’m complete all by myself and while I am naturally submissive, I will NOT roll over and play dead just because you’re online. I’ve been in Second Life for 12 years. I’ve made a few friends. I’ve got a few jobs. I have a lot of interests AND I chase squirrels/shinies. Apparently, that’s too much for some people.
I do know that it can be annoying, but most people either get it and embrace it or they move on. I play Guild Wars 2 with one of my best friends and he has told me that he feels like he’s herding cats when he plays with me. *laughs* I’m always running off in the wrong direction to look at something new or chasing materials for crafting. See? He embraces my inner cat and so do my other close friends. I do know it can be aggravating, because believe it or not, one of my friends is worse than me. I won’t call any names today, but if she’s not paying attention I know she’s been captured Facebook.
So, despite being very lonely at times, especially with the holiday season quickly approaching…I’m just going to enjoy myself with whoever I want, whenever I want. Anyone that has an issue with that can file a report with my keeper. Oh, wait, that’s right, I don’t have one. *giggles* That’s right, I do what I want! Remember that.
I wish you a day filled with love & laughter. ♥
