F*ck Yeah

Some people say I cuss too much and that cussing shows a lack of a better vocabulary or that it’s a lazy way of expressing yourself. I say, “Fuck off!” I like cussing. I especially like the fact that so many people allow a word to offend them.  A word! Not a racial slur, not a hate filled word, just a word…that is one of the most versatile words in the ever so eloquent English language. Yes, it is a legitimate word. It has earned its place in the dictionary with all sorts of examples and you can even find its origin if you look. Seriously, Google your favorite online dictionary, it’s in there!
I’m an adult, I cuss. I’m a responsible adult that knows there’s a time and place for everything. So, no, I’m not going to scream FUUUCKKK when I stub my toe in the middle of a mall, but when I’m talking to my dog in my yard I will certainly encourage her to hurry the fuck up. *laughs* So, have a good fucking day! (You can take that whichever way you like.)

fuck yeah

Show Some Love

So, there’s been a lot of hurt feelings on Facebook this week, because of a newish thing called Sarahah. It was designed for businesses so that employees could leave constructive feedback for each other, but it quickly found its way to Facebook and the SL community latched on. We were off and running. Many people refused to take part, knowing full well they would not take it well if insulted or while others publicly voiced their disdain for the site suggesting that if one could not say it without hiding behind anonymity they had no business saying it at all. Meanwhile, many were like me and saw it as something fun to do and jumped right off the bridge into the Sarahah internet river.
From there it either went uphill or downhill. For many it went downhill very quickly. Designers got attacked rather viciously. Yes, many of them received a lot of praise as well, but actual constructive criticism seemed to be absent. Many others reported being attacked and bullied. While some of these people took it in stride, others were quite hurt by the cruel words they found from anonymous contributors. A few even became aware of several secret admirers. While others found disturbing messages about people wanting to wear their skin or keep their eyeballs in jars. *giggles* I can’t begin to imagine who would have left such disturbing messages. *giggles again* I think almost everyone received some positive and loving messages, regardless of whatever else they found.
I personally received a total of 34 messages, most of which were very loving, kind, and positive. I was quite surprised and honestly, I little disappointed. I had prepared myself for some serious insults. I thought surely someone would be hateful, but I was quite fortunate. I think the closest I came to an insult was a rather astute observation from someone claiming not to know me very well. I had to laugh, because they were pretty accurate with what they said although they used an outdated terminology for their diagnosis of my mental health. *laughs* I had a few somewhat flirtation comments and a few that made no sense. I got no weird or insulting comments. Mostly, it was love and I was overwhelmed.
I was quite surprised by the reactions of a few that received negative comments. Some basically threw tantrums all over Facebook. Others quickly realized they did not possess the thick skin necessary to handle cowardly insults and shut down their Sarahah links. While others kept up their pages and found a new topic to bitch about on social media.
I am saddened that so many used it to bully and abuse others, but so goes the way of the internet. I think it’s important for everyone to remember that no matter what hateful or negative comments you received, there are far more people that love you. You are beautiful and wonderful in your own way. You are all amazing creatures. Whether you participated or not, please know that you are loved…not just by me, but many others. It is my hope that this weekend we will all remind the ones we love that they are special to us. As you proceed through your weekend and eventually into next week, show some love…not just to others, but to yourselves as well. ♥

Clementine

The name of this adorable jumper from The Annex, “Clementine” had me thinking of a song that I love by Sarah Jaffe of the same name. I’ll give you the link to listen to, but I’m not going to fill this page with lyrics this time. So, before I continue, here’s the song link: Sarah Jaffe-Clementine

It sorta fits the feel of the photo for me, too. Looking back at moments in my life that seemed so tragic once upon a time…I remember believing beyond any doubts that I was madly in love with…oh what was his name? *chuckles* Yeah, as I get older my youth really makes me laugh sometimes. Other times I just shake my head and wonder how I’m still alive. I was so careless and reckless in my 20s. In some ways I miss those days, the freedom I felt. Then again, if I knew then what I know now, I’m not sure I would have lived quite so carefree. I probably would have done a lot more to prepare for my future…my now. Alas, hindsight truly is 20/20, isn’t it?

Well, it is what is now and there’s no changing the past. I can only address my present day and so I shall. I hope that whatever path you take is filled with love and laughter. I hope wherever it leads is a place of peace and harmony, also filled with more love and more laughter. As those two things have literally been lifesavers for me over the years. ♥

Research

Some call it stalking, she called it research. She would find out where he went every night and what he was doing if it killed it. Based on the last few places she followed him to, it just might. She could hear shouting, but couldn’t make out what they were saying. The small window in the door was covered up, so she listened closely at the gap around the door. They sounded as if they were in another room, but she dared not open the door as she heard it make a terrible sound when he opened it earlier and she was clear around the corner! As she heard footsteps approaching the door from inside, she quickly scurried away. One of these days, she’d figure this out. For now, she best get home before he did or he’d have questions of his own.

REWIND

The whole point of the REWIND event is to take us back in time, let us have some fun with some looks of yesteryear. Well, they’ve done it quite successfully this round. Not only did the stores nail the theme, but the layout of this event made me want to go back before its over and take some pictures. I just hope I remember. *laughs*
By far one of my absolute favorite finds is the Vivienne Outfit from Dead Dollz. This is for several reasons. For one thing, the name reminds me of one of my favorite shows from the 80s, The Young Ones. I could not help but think of Vyvyan Basterd and how much I loved that show. There were only like 12 episodes, but I saw them all more than once and it never failed that my mother would walk in during one of the most disgusting scenes. Being a clean freak, she would shudder and wonder wtf was wrong with me!
Another reason I love this outfit is the bold yellow and navy option I chose…well, it has me feeling a bit like a punk super hero! I could crash lame parties and bring them to life with the likes of Sex Pistols, Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, and The Ramones! I could get down and show them some rocking moves as the party slid into a more chill feeling with some David Bowie! You’re feeling it, too, huh? Yeah, this event definitely brought me to life in some very fun ways!
Go get your REWIND on and see what you come up with, because there’s absolutely no shortage of plaid, black, skulls, and safety pins at this round.

Thinking Bout You

Yes, I know…another music post, Sady? Really? Yes, cuz its my blog and sometimes that’s where my mind is. Its times like these, photos like these…the music says it so much better than I can. I can only hope you’ll relate, appreciate the tunes, the photo, and above all the gorgeous creations from some incredibly talents designers. As always, lyrics and YouTube link provided below.

Thinking Bout You by Ariana Grande

I’ve been thinkin’ bout you
Yeah, I’ve been missing you
Where the hell are you, oh, when I need you?
I could still hear your voice
I ain’t got no choice
‘Cause I’m here all alone
I know I can’t wait ’til you get home

Oh, I don’t have you here with me
But at least I have the memory
I try to make it through the night
But I can’t control my mind

I’m just thinkin’ bout you
I’m thinkin’ bout you, I’m thinkin’ bout you
I’m just thinkin’ bout you
I’m thinkin’ bout you, I’m thinkin’ bout you

Got these thoughts in my head
Ain’t no way to forget
Got me losing my breath
Nobody got me the way that you did
Had my eyes rolling back
Had me arching my back
Now you love me so good
I wish you would hurry up and come back
