Freeze Frame

It’s 1am and I’m awake doing a blog post. I hope you don’t expect too much from me at this hour. However, I will give you this…
Before there was Vogue by Madonna, there was Freeze Frame by J. Geils Band and we “struck a pose” and “freezed framed” to this song quite a bit. Mind you, I was a kid when this song came out, but it was definitely a catchy tune. Enjoy♥

J. Geils Band – Freeze Frame

Freeze-frame

I could see it was a rough-cut Tuesday
Slow-motion weekdays stare me down
Her lipstick reflex got me wound
There were no defects to be found
Snapshot image froze without a sound

Thursday mornin’ was a hot flash-factor
Her face still focused in my mind
Test-strip proof-sheet love is hard to find
Friday night, we’ll dance the spotlight grind
Stop-time heart for me if she’s not mine

Freeze-frame! (Freeze-frame!) [x3]
Freeze-frame! Now Freeze!

Now I’m lookin’ at a flashback Sunday
Zoom lens feelings just won’t disappear
Close-up darkroom sweet-talk in my ear
Her hot-spot love for me is strong
This freeze-frame moment can’t be wrong

Freeze-frame! (Freeze-frame!) [x3]
Freeze-frame! Now Freeze!

Freeze-frame! (Freeze-frame!) [x3]
Freeze-frame! Now Freeze!

Freeze-frame, freeze-frame, freeze-frame
Freeze-frame, start to freeze, freeze, freeze

Start to freeze, freeze
Freeze-frame, freeze-frame, freeze-frame

Guarantees

There aren’t many guarantees in life, even the stuff sold with “satisfaction guaranteed” can’t really hold true. However, there’s one thing that never fails a woman with large breasts. Tanks tops! Sleep in a tank top or some slinky little nightie with spaghetti straps and you are guaranteed to wake up with one if not both of your titties out.

Bring Home the Bacon

With the Rewind event and all the retro styles that are swirling about the grid these days, I am in love! I love the fashion from the old days. I love mixing old and new. I’m also so glad that we can revisit the era with fashion without reliving the turmoils of World War II or segregation…or the lack of women’s rights. As much as we struggle with the world today, we still have a lot to be grateful for. I am so glad to have never lived a day of my life in segregated school. Sadly, homosexuals had to remain in the closet when I was growing up or they faced awful discrimination. Those brave souls that stepped forward paved a path for us all. Throughout time, it took just a handful to start a revolution and over the course of time with lots of determined souls, change happened. Though sometimes it feels like we take two steps forward and on step back, we are still moving forward and so we shall. We no longer wait for the men to bring home the bacon, we can carve it up and cook it ourselves.

Sleepless Nights

Like so many people, I suffer from far too many sleepless nights. I was talking to my lovely friend, Deva, one morning. That often seems to be the start of our conversations, “How are you?” “I’m tired af!” *laughs* Neither of us sleep well and our friend, Troy, on the other hand can simply close his damn eyes and decide to go to sleep. Its a good thing we love him so damn much or we’d truly hate him for that gift alone. Though, to be fair, Troy is so kind hearted, he would gladly share his ability to sleep with us both if he could. (Okay, that sounded wrong, but funny. So, I’m leaving it.) I sure wish he could bottle that ability and send me some. People wonder why I’m so crazy and all over the place with my creativity. I tell you now, its lack of sleep and a brain that goes ninety to nothing all the freaking time. So, whether its a lack of inspiration or too much, I’m going to blame it on my sleepless nights.

Car Wash

Ugh, washing my car, that’s something I haven’t done in ages. It desparately needs to at least go through a good car wash. I don’t really have a place to wash it, as I live in a condo, and there’s no place to do that here. There’s a nice little car spa down the road, but that’s $30 plus a tip that I’d really rather spend elsewhere. I love my car, don’t get me wrong. That’s why I’ve kept it for so long. Poor Hodgey P, really deserves to better care. Don’t misunderstand, he’s not filthy, just normal not so shiny pretty. Plus, he’s almost 12yrs old. Yes, my car is a boy and he has a name. Don’t judge me! Ok, well, you can, but keep it to yourself. I already know I’m crazy, I don’t need you to tell me. *laughs* Maybe I’ll get him detailed in the spring. *nods*

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.)

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.
