ThereAfter

I’ve had the great honor and privilege of being involved behind the scenes with ThereAfter: A Post Apocalyptic Affair. Naturally, I love the theme of the event, but this event is unlike any other I’ve seen. This is not only a themed shopping event. Everyday there are additional activities going on Fashion Theater, DJs, and Live singers! The scenery alone is worth a visit and you will definitely find some incredible must have quality designs. I’m featuring just a few things here, but this is a must see event! I’m not going to waste your time chatting on and on about it. I want you take a look at the scene I’ve created using just a few of the amazing items you’ll find there, then go check it out for yourself. You can be sure, you’ll be seeing a lot more of this event from me, as well. Happy Apocalypse!!♥

I Feel a Sin Coming On

Unlike most of my music posts, this one was intended from the very beginning. There are a few people that will get the personal reference, but for the rest of you I expect the song will fit the photo regardless. Think Mae West meets modern day country with a twist of Sady….*grins* As always, YouTube link and lyrics are provided. Below the photo you’ll find all the details for the sinfully delicious goodies you see in the photo.

I Feel A Sin Coming On by Piston Annies

I feel a sin comin’ on
I feel a right that’s about to go wrong
I got a shiver down to the bone
I feel a sin comin’ on

I gotta buzz in my brain
Drunk on a love goin’ down like champagne
I got a feelin’ it’s gonna leave a lipstick stain
And I’ll be the only one to blame

And you can see it
All over my face
Sweet temptation
All over the place
Give me tall dark and handsome,
Mix it up with somethin’ strong
I feel a sin (I feel a sin) comin’ on

Please Jesus don’t hold me back
I know it ain’t mine but I want it so bad
The smoke and the whiskey’s
Got me feeling easy
And the lights are all fading to black

And you can see it
All over my face
Sweet temptation
All over the place
Give me tall dark and handsome,
Mix it up with somethin’ strong
I feel a sin (I feel a sin) comin’ on

And you can see it (and you can see it)
All over my face (all over my face)
Sweet temptation
All over the place
Give me tall dark and handsome,
Mix it up with some strong
I feel a sin (I feel a sin) comin’ on
I feel a sin (I feel a sin) comin’ on

I feel a sin

Setting Off Alarms

Time for some more real talk. This time, I’m talking about profiles, the kinds of profiles that should set off alarms. You ready? Let’s get it started! Going to just list off some common things I see around the grid that should set off alarms based on my almost 11yrs on the grid.

1. Profiles that read, “Just came back to SL after a long break.” Chances are this person is an alt. I’m not saying don’t talk to them, but take it slow and watch them closely.
2. Profiles that have threat picks. You know the ones…”if you touch/hurt so & so, I will rip your heart out of your chest and shove it down your throat” kinda picks. Clearly, they’re not going to do any of that and the fact that they feel the need to make such threats publicly shows a lack of maturity and intelligence.
3. Blank profiles. C’mon people, put some effort into you SL. Blank profiles suggest you’re an alt or terribly boring. Either way…ALARM bells!
4. Overtly sexy profile pics. Legs spread with a bottle between your legs, may be a hot a picture, but its sending a message to everyone that looks at your profile. Skank that likes to drink. You either want nothing but sex or you’re desperate for attention.
5. The declaration against drama. I’m going to tell you right now. These people are usually the ones stirring the pot, then stepping back with their popcorn to watch the damage. RUN! Let me explain, you cannot get through life without drama. Don’t believe me, perhaps you need to see the definition of drama. Do allow me to enlighten you.
|||||drama: any situation or series of events having vivid, emotional, conflicting, or
striking interest or results|||||
6. Declaration of being a bitch/asshole. Chances are they’re correct, so why even bother. These people have up walls and they’ve just informed you of that fact. Do you honestly feel like jumping through hoops for them before you’ve even gotten to know them?
7. Emo picks. If their picks are full of emotional vomit. They’re either going to bring you down or suck you into it. Its exhausting and seriously, did you come to SL for that?
8. Passive aggressive picks. They have a pick clearly aimed at someone they believe is watching their profile, but don’t have the balls to just say it directly to whomever they’re talking about. Chances are the next one could be aimed at you. Why bother?
9. Profiles that read like an online dating profile. There are actual sites & groups in SL for that, but overall that is not the main objective of Second Life. C’mon, everyone you meet here isn’t looking for love. Just stop it already.
10. Profiles that declare they keep SL & RL separate.  This is impossible unless that avatar is strictly for Role-Play purposes and says so straight away. Some aspect of the real person behind the avatar is involved with how they interact in this virtual world. This person is most likely hiding something.

So, there’s my top ten profile warning signs. It pays to read profile before approaching each other and often shows you whether or not you have something in common.

Should I Stay or Should I Go

She had a habit of being early for all of her appointments, which wasn’t usually a problem. No doctor or employer had ever complained that she was early. She hated being late, absolutely hated it. Naturally, she didn’t care too much for others being late either. However, as luck would have it…the majority of her friends were consistenly late.
They promised they would be on time for the grand opening of the new  art gallery style nightclub. They promised. She didn’t blame them when she showed up ten minutes early, but  twenty-five minutes later she had grown impatient! She decided to  generously allow them another ten minutes before she gave up and went home. She didn’t want to go in there alone!
As she stood outside eyeing her watch, she thought to herself, “Maybe for once in my life I should break my own norms and do something without my friends holding my hand.’ Afterall, she had gotten all dressed up for this.
Looking from her watch the wall, the neon sign outside the club says, “Let’s Get Weird.” She shrugged to herself and decided to give them another five minutes. While trying to decide what she would do if they didn’t show up a song getting stuck in her head as she contemplates her decision, “Should I Stay or Should I Go.”

You're Late

Random Run

She was out for a run like any other day. She stopped at the corner market for her bottle of water and a rest when the adorable little puppy wandered up, tongue and tail wagging. She poured some of her water on the ground for the pup and he lapped up before passing out at her feet. He had no tags and he was too cute to leave abandoned in a parking lot. She sighed and rolled her eyes at herself, I don’t have time for a puppy. She carried the pup into the store and asked the clerk if she knew anything about it. The clerk mentioned that the pup had been hanging around for a few days but no one had claimed it or came looking for it. Sady sighed again, left her number with the clerk just in case anyone came looking for the sweet puppy and took it home.
That was six years ago, the Random and Sady have been inseparable ever since.

Let’s Go For a Swim

Part 3 of the Grace & Sady Road Trip

We got checked in to the motel after our long and very rough road trip. Flipped on the television that shows nothing but “adult movies” and washed up. Despite the advertised pool being an above ground pool that’s oddly placed ACROSS THE STREET…we threw on our bikinis, grabbed the vodka and headed for the “pool.”
“Hope this pool is clean and cold,” Grace sing songs as she skips across the road, looking over her shoulder, “Oh good, you got the vodka!”
“We’re going to need it after the day we’ve had. Just wish we’d thought to get some tequila!”
“Oh gawd, no, I can’t carry you back to the room if you get drunk on tequila, Sady!”
“Well, next stop we make I’m getting some, so you better figure it out!”
“Damnit, Sady, we’ll have to get some WiFi so you can flash Kess and Posh on skype again!”
We bursts into giggles and make our way up the ladder into the pool.

to the pool

We manage to climb into the bizarre motel pool. It was so refreshing and surprisingly clean. Out of nowhere, Grace pulls out a selfie stick, “Pose pretty with me!”
“Oh, gawd, Grace, with the motel behind us? Are you serious? And exactly where did you have that hidden?” I really did wonder where she had hidden that thing.
“Don’t you worry where I hid it…you just don’t want anyone to see that bandaid and dental floss thing you call a bikini!”
“Hey, no better way to avoid tan lines than to minimize the coverage! You saying the horizontal stripes make me look fat?” I laughed, because I knew I wasn’t fat. We had both dieted for weeks planning for this trip.
“No one is looking at the stripes while you’re wearing that! Why didn’t you wear the new Blueberry bikinis we picked up before we left?” Grace thrusts out her chest as she made a duck face at the camera.
I laughed, “Cuz that’s for a beach party, not the pool or laying out.”
“Pffft, I’ll wear it wherever I want, ya bitch!” Grace snapped another picture and tossed the selfie stick aside.
“Yes, ma’am, now pass me that vodka will ya?” I was thirsty and ready to get drunk.
“We getting plastered to do voiceovers for porn, Sady?” Grace couldn’t help but giggle.
“Naturally, how else will we convince the grocery delivery guy to plow us on the kitchen counter?” Sady burst into giggles as she took a long swig from the bottle and passed it to Grace.
Needless to say, we got so drunk we barely made it back to our room and passed out. No porn voice overs and luckily no sunburns. Tomorrow we pack up and hit the road again, eventually we’ll see real grass again! So, stay tuned for part 4…God only knows what we’ll encounter next.

Grace & Sady Road Trip-Motel (pt 2)

Part 2 of the Grace & Sady Road Trip

Grace and I have been driving for a while. We’ve taken turns at the wheel. We’ve flashed truckers. We’ve sang our hearts out. We’ve exhausted ourselves, but we finally found a little motel out in the middle of nowhere.
now what

Sady bursts into giggles as they get out of the car, pointing at the huge amenity sign right out front, “Look, Grace, they have porn!”
“Like I want to watch porn with YOU!” she laughs.
“Grace, look around, you think they have cable way out here? We can turn off the sound and make our own monologue! It’ll be hilarious, ” Sady chuckled to herself, remembering the last time they watched porn together, along with their good friend, Tracy.
“Ok, yeah, we can do that. I wonder if they have any place to eat around here,” she looks around and hangs her head, “Not looking so good. At least we still have some snacks from the gas station.”
She reaches into the car. I assume she’s grabbing a snack or her purse…I turn to walk towards the office to get us a room. I turn my head just in time to see her running towards me…

we're here

…with a magic wand in her hand! She’s coming towards me with it, “Grace! WTF are you doing….get that thing away from me!”
Grace is just laughing as she charges at me with her wireless wand just a buzzing, “Awww, Sady, don’t be scared, didn’t you get one of these when you got your Bound Box?”
“Yes, but I didn’t bring it on the trip, ya cunt!”
She chased me all the way around the sign and into the office with that thing buzzing. *laughs*
As we’re paying for the room, Grace asked the clerk if they have any place to eat or buy booze nearby. Not surprisingly the answer was no, but they did have a vending machine in the office and the manager, a pervy looking old man,  offered us a bottle of vodka and pointed out the window, “We’ve got complimentary adult movies and a pool if you ladies get too hot.” He chuckled to himself as Grace tried to hide the wand behind her back at this point, but I’m quite sure he saw it.
We took the vodka and giggled. Grace had managed to force the narrow end of the wand into her back pocket. As Grace grabbed some snacks from the machine, I reached forward and hit the button to make it start buzzing against her ass. We bursts into giggles and ran from the office with snacks and her buzzing wand in tow.
“Ya bitch,” she yells as I race to the car and grab our bags.
We were too exhausted to do much of anything that night, but planned to take a swim before hitting the road again the next day….

 

get away from me
