Spend My Days Locked in a Haze

Tove Lo – Habits (Stay High)

I gotta stay high all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Spend my days locked in a haze
Trying to forget you babe
I fall back down
Gotta stay high all my life
To forget I’m missing you
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
I gotta stay
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
I gotta stay
I gotta stay
I gotta stay high all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Spend my days locked in a haze
Trying to forget you babe
I fall back down
Gotta stay high all my life
To forget I’m missing you
I gotta stay
Staying in my play pretend
Where the fun ain’t got no end
Ooh
Can’t go home alone again
Need someone to numb the pain
Ooh
Staying in my play pretend
Where the fun ain’t got no end
Ooh
Can’t go home alone again
Need someone to numb the pain
You’re gone and I gotta stay
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

PMS & Fluffy Ducks

Alright, so my best friend, Grace Sixpence, suggested a rather odd topic in response to my “Dangerous Proposition” post.  She requested “fluffy ducks and period pains, all in the one post please!” Then she laughed, because not only does she know I’ll do it, but she knows its going to be weird. It actually made me wonder about ducks and their periods. You see, a friend of mine offered up a very enlightening video a couple of years ago that taught me things about ducks that I’m not sure I ever wanted to know. However, here I am in the know….let me share the video with you: True Facts About The Duck
Go on, have a watch, then come back and we’ll discuss PMS & Fluffy Ducks.

Now, assuming you’ve watched the video, you know now all about the corkscrew “parts” and Grace brought up period pains. I cannot help but wonder if these fluffy little ducks have PMS or cramping. If they do, can you just imagine that pain spiraling along your insides like some sort of demonic roller-coaster? I know that when I’m cramping, if a so called fluffy duck were to cross my path, I’d probably ring its neck as I don’t particularly care for ducks to begin with.

There you have it, you’ve been educated and scarred for life. You can thank Grace for that. *nods & giggles*

Killing Strangers

Alright, this is most definitely a song post, as this song was going through my head the entire time I worked on this picture. I hope Marilyn Manson doesn’t offend you. If he does, well, you could just give the lyrics a read or skip to the credits. *blows you a kiss* ♥

Marilyn Manson – Killing Strangers

This world doesn’t need no opera, we need it for the operation
We don’t need a bigga knife (a bigga knife)
‘Cause we got guns, we got guns, we got guns (we got guns)
We got guns, you betta run (ya betta run, ya betta run, ya betta run)
We’re killin’ strangers, we’re killin’ strangers
We’re killin’ strangers, so we don’t kill the ones that we love
We’re killin’ strangers, we’re killin’ strangers
We’re killin’ strangers, so we don’t kill the ones that we love
Love, love
We pack demolition
We can’t pack emotion
Dynamite, we just might
So blow us a kiss, blow us a kiss
Blow us a kiss, and we’ll blow you to pieces
We’re killin’ strangers, we’re killin’ strangers
We’re killin’ strangers, so we don’t kill the ones that we love
Love, love, love
And we got guns, we got guns
Motherfuckers better, better better run
We got guns, we got guns
Motherfuckers better run
We got guns, we got guns
Motherfuckers better, better better run
We got guns, we got guns
Motherfuckers better run
We’re killin’ strangers, we’re killin’ strangers
We’re killin’ strangers, so we don’t kill the ones that we love
We’re killin’ strangers, we’re killin’ strangers
We’re killin’ strangers, so we don’t kill the ones that we love
Love, love, love, love, love, love
You better run
We got guns, we got guns, we got guns

Cheers

Today is Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. and while I know it has all this historical importance, I really don’t like to think of the first Thanksgiving, because what was to come afterwards was wretched and seemed to pretty much set the standard for our country is some of the worst ways. However, as many years have passed, Thanksgiving has developed a better meaning for most of us. At least, I’d like to think so. We are a gluttonous people and Thanksgiving is not only a day that we stuff ourselves with our favorite delicious  and traditional meals, but it is also a day that we take pause. We look around at our lives and count our blessings. That is my favorite part, because everyone that’s alive has something to be grateful for today. Not everyone will have countless blessings, but even the darkest days provide something for which we can be grateful.

One of my many blessings are the amazing friendships that I’ve developed with people all around the world in Second Life. I can’t even begin to list you all, but each of you plays such an essential part of my daily life. I love you. I adore you. Most of all, I thank you for all that you do. So, whether you celebrate this U.S. holiday or not, while I wait for the food, I want to raise my mimosa glass to you all, “CHEERS!”

Cheers

Free

When doing this photo, I couldn’t help but thing of this particular song. While I know I’ve done another music post recently, sometimes that’s just what I’m feeling for the photo. So, here’s another one…YouTube link and lyrics provided, of course. ♥

Broods – Free

I’d lose everything so I can sing
Hallelujah, I’m free
I’m free, I’m free
I’m free, I’m free

I have lived my life so perfectly
Kept to all my lines so carefully
I’d lose everything so I can sing
Hallelujah, I’m free
I’m free, I’m free
I’m free, I’m free
Hallelujah, I’m free

Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
It’s never enough, I’m never complete
Tell me to prove, expect me to lose
I push it away, I’m trying to move
Hoping for more, and wishing for less
When I didn’t care was when I did best
I’m desperate to run, I’m desperate to leave
If I lose it all, at least I’ll be free

All I want is your attention please
Don’t want your opinion or your fee
Cause the freest I have ever been
I had nothing to show or be seen
I’m free, I’m free
I’m free, I’m free

Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
It’s never enough, I’m never complete
Tell me to prove, expect me to lose
I push it away, I’m trying to move
Hoping for more, and wishing for less
When I didn’t care was when I did best
I’m desperate to run, I’m desperate to leave
If I lose it all, at least I’ll be free
Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
It’s never enough, I’m never complete
Tell me to prove, expect me to lose
I push it away, I’m trying to move
Hoping for more, and wishing for less
When I didn’t care was when I did best
I’m desperate to run, I’m desperate to leave
If I lose it all, at least I’ll be free

It’s clear you think that I’m inferior
Whatever helps you sleep at night
Whatever helps you keep it tight
It’s clear you think that I’m inferior
Whatever helps you sleep at night
Whatever helps you keep it tight

Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
It’s never enough, I’m never complete
Tell me to prove, expect me to lose
I push it away, I’m trying to move
Hoping for more, and wishing for less
When I didn’t care was when I did best
I’m desperate to run, I’m desperate to leave
If I lose it all, at least I’ll be free
Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
It’s never enough, I’m never complete
Tell me to prove, expect me to lose
I push it away, I’m trying to move
Hoping for more, and wishing for less
When I didn’t care was when I did best
I’m desperate to run, I’m desperate to leave
If I lose it all, at least I’ll be free

Hallelujah, I’m free

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*

Careless

“Whoever is careless with truth in small matters cannot be trusted in important affairs.” ~Albert Einstein

This is a lesson it took far too long for me to learn. Once upon a time I defended the lies on small matters ready with justifications for other people’s lies, not to mention my own. Over the years, I’ve learned that Einstein was all too right. Those little lies are resounding red flags and alarms. I could have saved myself quite a bit of heart ache had I learned that lesson sooner. They say wisdom comes with age, but sometimes I think its really just a matter of taking too damn long to wake the hell up.
I suppose I could expand on that a bit. Whatsoever makes us feel it necessary to tell those little lie is should set off an alarm. We shouldn’t have to lie about ourselves in order to be accepted. We don’t need to puff ourselves up for outside validation. If we feel the need to do that, something is wrong. The same is to be said for accepting lies when we know the truth already. I’m not suggesting confrontation. I’m merely saying that we should take a look inwards and figure out why we would accept or project such lies. Clearly, these lies are indications that something is wrong.

Oh Deer

When I was putting this scene together, I couldn’t help but get lost as I was thrown down memory lane. Earlier this year, I lost my aunt. I shouldn’t say I lost her, because to be honest, I didn’t really like her. My mom lost her sister. My mom was and still is quite heartbroken. While I didn’t like my aunt very much, there were things I liked about her. I loved visiting her for a few days at a time, because she lived on a mountain in the hills of West Virginia. I know, I know, but seriously, its a beautiful state, especially in the fall when the leaves are so vibrant. I loved being so enveloped in mother nature. There were deer that would come into her yard every night as the sun was going down and you never knew when you’d see a bear lurking about looking for apples. My aunt was especially gullible and I even had her hunting ghost orbs in the Catholic cemetery at the bottom of the mountain once. *laughs* Her home was rustic and so far removed from modern society to include dial up internet as it was all she could get where she lived.
I didn’t agree with her views on life, religion, or politics. I didn’t think she was a very nice person, but there we managed to share some funny moments. Like the time we mouthed words to each other and made my mother think she was going deaf. She fought hard the last few years of her life and finally couldn’t fight anymore. I understood that and I admired her decision to tell her family she was done fighting. To say goodbye and let her go. I know that took a lot of courage for her, considering how close she was to her children and how much she loved her husband. I dedicate this post to her, even though she has never approved of me, my lifestyle, my beliefs, etc. *laughs*

Help Yourself by Helping Others

“The best way to cheer yourself up, is to cheer somebody else up.” -Mark Twain

I believe this to be true wholeheartedly. For ages, people have figured out that the best way to get out of you own head is to help other people. When we sit too long in our own problems we can drown in them and find ourselves so lost that we begin to lose hope. It’s when we lose hope that we truly become miserable and that is when we are the most dangerous…to ourselves and everyone around us. Our misery makes us toxic. Think about how good it feels to help someone in need. I don’t mean dropping a few dollars into the bucket with the bell ringers at the holidays. I mean, to support a friend and watch them succeed. I mean, to hand a meal to a homeless person. I mean opening our hearts and genuinely helping someone that is going through something so wretched, that we can’t begin to fathom the road on which they travel.
We’ve all had things go terribly wrong from time to time. We’ve all watched someone else suffering and felt absolutely helpless from the sidelines, especially in a virtual world. However, there is something happening right now that could forever change someone’s life in such a wonderful way. It hasn’t started yet, but it shall begin soon. In the meantime, I want to spread the word and I hope that you will, too. A dear friend of mine has undergone the unthinkable this year and despite it all, she has maintained the same positive attitude that made so many of us love her from the very beginning. I won’t go deep into it here, but if you’d like to help someone that not only needs help…and would never in a million years ask….there’s about to be a fundraising event and there’s something for everyone.
