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.

My Echo

My Echo

That primitive sense, resonates
Reality cultivates from within
A reverberation

Pursuing the imagary
Rejected solutions remain

Entirely lost, I refuse the map
I drift on a sea of my ignorance
Anchored by my fears

Surviving with make believe
Hoarding the obsolete
Neglecting the truth

Embracing one world
Disregarding another

I know
I don’t know
My echo

You Lookin’ At Me Lookin’ At You

I took a step away from writing about myself and have been writing more fictional tidbits and short short stories to accompany my photos. I have to admit it has been a lot of fun. However, there will be times like now, that a song just fits how I feel about the picture more than anything else. Today is one of those days. So, I’ll give you the YouTube link and the lyrics. Its up to you where to go from here. Either way, I wish you love & laughter, seems we could all use some of that, right?

Ozzy Osbourne You Lookin’ At Me Lookin’ At You

Pictures building in my head
Nothing done and nothing said
Talking to me with your eyes
What they say is no surprise
Things are so much different now
But nothing lasts forever

You, looking at me, looking at you
I wanna talk to you
You, looking at me, looking at you

Carry on from day to day
Even when we touch it seems miles away
I know you know I know too
Is it me or is it you?
Things are so much different now
But nothing lasts forever

I had a dream that we were through
I can’t imagine nights without you, yeah
Looks and fixes can we repair
Talking good and we just stare
Waste of love is waste of life
Save our love from the final knife
Things would be so different then
Our love would last forever

well now

Not THAT Song

“Not THAT song!” she ripped the headphones from her head. It had been such a good day until that song kicked on…this is what she gets for putting her library on random play while she got dressed. That song would always rip at her heart. That song would always bring tears to her eyes. That song would always make her remember…remember a day she wanted to forget.

Desire (NSFW)

This is my first post using two items from Bound Box. This is the first one, so they’ve been very generous by sharing photos and letting us blog it early so you can get a true taste of things to come. I thought about writing something really dirty and personal, but I chose to share one of the sexiest songs I know, that says it all. *grins* Enjoy the song and for the love of all things kinky…you really want to grab the Bound Box before the 12th, because this is the yummiest box to hit the grid. *purrs*

Look What I Can Do!

When I was a kid…okay, who am I kidding, I’ll still do it, if no one is around…but I love doing handstands in a pool. Probably because its the only way my fat ass has ever been able to do a handstand at all!  I do love swimming and playing in a pool, but as I’ve said before, at this point in my life swimsuits and I are not friends in the real world. Luckily, there’s no shortage of them in Second Life and this glitzy little number from Scandalize is a must have! And do you see that adorable little pug? Yeah, Jian, did it again! This pack comes with chihuahuas and pugs! How can you resist that? Oh and this handstand I’m doing? It’s not a blogger pose, nope! Its an animation that’s built into this awesome above ground pool from VOID! You can find all the details below the picture, but this is one summer we can all have some fun…even if its just in the virtual world. I, for one, have had some of the best times of my life with my Second Life friends.

The Ugliest Thing I Could Find

So, the tie dye pattern on this Migle dress from United Colors reminded me of one of my favorite shirts when I was about 18. There’s actually a funny story about that shirt. My parents got divorced when I was 15, for the first year my mom cried almost every night. After that she went a little wild. She was going on trips quite regularly, but being the awesome mom that she was, she would always bring me a present. Being the mom with awful taste meant I wasn’t going to like it if it was clothing. Then lo and behold she returned from a trip with the most awesome looking black and white tie dyed shirt I had ever seen. It wasn’t even a tee shirt, it was like a wicked blouse! I was so shocked and happy. As I’m standing there hugging the shirt, then holding it up, then ripping off my current shirt to try it on, my mom is standing there laughing so hard she has tears running down her face. Naturally, I had to know what was so damn funny, right?
She wiped the tears from her face and asked if I really liked the shirt. I nodded profusely, “Yes! I love it, Momma! Thank you. I can’t believe you picked this out, though.”
She laughed again for a minute then said, “Well, you never like anything I pick out, so I just looked around the shop for the ugliest thing I could find. You’re welcome.”
Damn woman. We still have opposing taste in most things, but she’s gotten a lot better at picking out gifts over the years. *laughs* Even if she thinks they’re ugly.
