We all know some one that only hears what they want to hear, sees what they want to see. I believe that’s more prevalent in Second Life than anywhere else. Like orange juice concentrate, the misplaced loyalties on the grid run rampant. People being “loyal” to false friends, closing their eyes to the truth and choosing to turn their eyes elsewhere. I’m not quite sure what people are afraid of, but feeding someone’s ego with lies is not doing anyone any favors. The thing is that when we lie to those that are supposedly close to us, we lie to ourselves, as well. We have to ask ourselves if that’s what we would want if it was us on the other side of the blindness…the deafness. By turning the blind eye, the deaf ear…are we doing them a favor? Or are we so afraid of the truth that the lie is more comforting? What are our motives for such a level of dishonesty, especially if we really are completely aware of the truth?
So, I’m back to writing and the ramblings of my mind are bound to be weirder than ever, but I’ve decided to restrict myself less. A new friend reminded me that I started this blog as an outlet for me. Sure, I absolutely love showing off my favorite designers and will always do that, but the words? I can’t censor myself and get therapeutic value from it, now can I? *laughs* Consider this your warning….lol.
There is no way to explain to my readers how excited I was about these gloves and panties. There’s a really fantastic (really bad) movie out there called Teeth and the way it makes men cringe cracks me up so much. I highly recommend this movie to everyone and I have seen it several times. I could not help but think about all the twisted ways one might use these gloves if they were real, especially if that someone was afflicted with Vagina Dentata. I will simply leave it at that, but I strongly encourage those with a dark side to visit the Eclipse Event. I honestly think this might be their best round yet.
Oh hi there, you caught me roaming through an abandoned house on Borneo Isle. I was especially fascinated with this old piano. I always wanted to learn to play, but it wasn’t in the cards. Not sure who brought in the fresh sunflowers, but they certainly brighten up this dusty old space. I’ve never been big on sunflowers, but my mother like them. Everytime, and I do mean EVERYTIME, she sees them she tells me how my grandmother had them growing along the back of their yard like a fence, when she was growing up. Anyway, this little house that I stumbled across has plenty of photographic spots inside, not to mention the plethora of choices on the rest of the land. Go check it out, the link is in the credits below. ♥
Why do men want women’s panties? I understand this topic has nothing to do with this super sweet outfit, but I’m seriously confused about this topic. We see it in movies all the time, men sniffing panties. If I didn’t know beyond a shadow of a doubt that there are vending machines for used panties in some countries, I might just think that it was just one of those silly exaggerated Hollywood things, like how there’s always one survivor in a horror movie, unless its one of Rob Zombie’s. (God, I love him!) Why would anyone want to sniff underwear? I’d love to have someone explain that to me. I understand wanting something that smells like someone you love. I’ve slipped boyfriend’s shirts over pillows, but panties? GROSS! You don’t see women running around wanting to sniff men’s drawers. You know why? Cuz ball sweat…*shudders*
I really hate the phrase, “A leopard never changes its spots.” I disagree with the meaning behind it, completely. If meant literally, then its just a fact. However, it is rarely said with literal intent. It refers to people not being able to change their true character. I just do not believe that’s true. I believe that people can and do change, especially with age. Now, I understand that the phrase is actually refers to people’s innate traits, but again, I know that people DO change. I know they do, because I have…several times. The older I get, the more I evolve and change. I think that’s true about most people. No matter how old you, think back to who you were 7-10 yrs ago. I certainly hope you changed. We learn and we grow, to suggest otherwise is simply ridiculous to me. To suggest that someone cannot or will not change is really quite an insult. It’s like suggesting there’s no hope or reason to continue living and learning.

“Broken glass is thrown away,
splinters left become your pain.
Funny how trouble won’t fade away.
What’s in your veins stays in your veins.
I try not to break, but sometimes it is more than I can take.
Blood is thicker than water, they say.
But I’ve tried to wash my blood away.
Funny how those scars don’t leave a trace.
The ones that leave the deepest pain.
I try not to break, but sometimes it is more than I can take.”

So, it finally happened. I finally pinned Rina Edenflower down for a collaboration. She is so completely talented it blows me away and I humbled that she took the time to pose with me. In fact, she hosted our collaboration and look it….I had Rina’s hand on my thigh for hours!!! Don’t hate! Congratulate!! *grins* Seriously, this was so much fun and the time we spent together taking our photos was really fantastic. She is as beautiful inside as she is outside. I wish I could tell you her story, but it isn’t mine to tell. Let’s just say, you have no freaking idea what other people have gone through until you take the time to genuinely talk and listen. I love her more today than I imagined possible and I am so grateful to call her my friend. I truly hope that you will see more collaborations from the two of us in the future.
To see her amazing version of our photo, you can click the photo below and follow the link….OR you can go straight to her blog: That’s Hot!
This has been my first Thanksgiving without my husband and I’m doing anything I can to keep my mind off of it. I haven’t talked about it to anyone, because I don’t want to bring them down during their joyous holiday time….or add to their misery…lol. I have found it quite therapeutic to kill things…in a game. It’s no big secret that I have been playing GW2 for about six months now. It amuses me that all the years I was with my husband, he made me hate MMOs. He was so impatient, he would help me level up by running my low level characters through high level places, so I’d get all these experience points that I didn’t earn. Yet, he didn’t actually teach me much beyond the basics. For him there was an objective at all times and there was no point in just lollygagging around. With GW2, the friend that has taken me there and shown me around. He not only possesses the patience to “herd cats” aka keep up with me chasing shinies, but he encourages me to find joy in the game, no matter what it is. So, if I want to run around all day picking plants or killing frogs, he says go for it. Mind you, I didn’t say he does that with me…lol, but he appreciates every aspect of the game so much that he has introduced me to places and things that I never would have seen if I were so objective driven. So, as a big fuck you to the ex and an escape to me, you probably won’t see me around SL much this weekend….because in the words of Arlo Guthrie, “I want to kill…KILL…KILLL!”
Alright, well, this has absolutely nothing to do with the picture, but I just had something pretty cool happen to me in SL. I was at the Frisky Beaver listening to Red Heaven, when I’m alerted to my name being used in local. Yes, I have a sound alert, because I have a hard time keeping up with local AND IMs. So, I look in local to see this:
[17:11] Nazz Linden: wow Sady.. very cool looking blog
It might be silly, but to know that someone at Linden Lab actually looked at my blog AND liked it? THAT was an epic moment for me. I’m super stoked over it. I do realize it might be silly, as we are all just humans, but it’s still a big deal to me.
