Just Imagine

“Just imagine becoming the way you used to be as a very young child, before you understood the meaning of any word, before opinions took over your mind. The real you is loving, joyful, and free. The real you is just like a flower, just like the wind, just like the ocean, just like the sun.” ~  Don Miguel Ruiz

Giving You Up

I’m actually not going to cop out with a song and lyrics, which is what I often feel like I’m doing. Although several people have told me that they don’t see it that way and I’m glad. Deep down, I just feel like I’m not being true to my blog when I simply link a song and share the lyrics. While this post is linked to Miley Cyrus’ Giving You Up, the video I’ve linked provides the lyrics. So, if you’re interested, they are there. Not every line fits how I’m feeling, but a good bit of it does.

I’m not going into great detail, but I don’t think its much of  a secret that I’m nursing a broken heart. I had 368 days of bliss with Josh and then it ended. Just like that. There was no fight. There was no real discussion, it was just a very sudden realization that this was the end. His RL had to come first and I want nothing more than for him to be happy there, especially knowing we never stood a chance of being together in RL. He gave me his avatars, so now I have malts (male alts, for those that aren’t familiar with the term) and eventually I’ll use them for photos. I have no intentions of being a man in SL. Though it might be interesting. *eyes Tracy & grins momentarily*

The truth of the matter is that we are trying to stay friends, but its very hard and what worked to help me heal the last time I had a heartache like this will not work this time. Too many bridges have been burned and too many paths have been blocked. It’s been so long since I’ve been completely on my own in SL that I almost feel lost. Fortunately, I do have a network of amazing friends that are more than willing to try and pull me from my funk. However, the wound is still very fresh and there are times, particularly when I’m alone that it hurts like the day it ended. While I have every intention of remaining his friend…I think that until I heal, I may have distance myself from him and that hurts all the more.

Warm On A Cold Night

I promise I’m trying to get back to actually writing wit my blogs, because its what I do. I’m just going through a hard time right now. I’ll be alright. I know that, but for now I am still hurting too much to talk about it.

Honne – Warm On A Cold Night

Like a rabbit in headlights
They’re stunned by all your charm
And I feel so damn lucky
To have you on my arm
And I can’t help but wonder
How we ended up alright
And I love you like no other
‘Cause this has never felt so right
Yeah you can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
Yeah you can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
I want to treat you something special
Give you what you deserve
I want to take you to paradise
In a 1950’s Merc
And I can’t help but wonder
Just how we ended up alright
And I love you like no other
And this has never felt so right
You can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
You can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
Girl you can keep me warm
You can keep me real warm
There’s just one thing
Girl you could have anyone
So why you choosing me and not leaving me on my own
Girl you could be with anyone
So thanks for making me your number one
You can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
Yeah you can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
Yeah wrap me up and keep warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night
Oh yeah you can keep me warm on a cold night
Warm on a cold cold night

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

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.

Kindergarten Tired

She wasn’t sure how much more she could take or how long she could hang on. The weight of it all was simply too much sometimes. The day had simply consumed her and she was feeling kindergarten tired. You know, when you’re so tired, you’d just lie right down wherever you are and gladly take a nap? Yeah, she was feeling that way, but she had much to do and could only take the time to lace up her amazing new shoes. Naturally while she was bent down to do so she took a little rest on her knee. In the meantime, check out those shoes! *giggles*

Justify My Love

That’s right, I’m going with one of the sexiest songs of all time. Of course, I’m providing the lyrics and a YouTube link.

Madonna Justify My Love

I want to kiss you in Paris
I want to hold your hand in Rome
I want to run naked in a rainstorm
Make love in a train cross-country
You put this in me
So now what, so now what?

Wanting, needing, waiting
For you to justify my love (my love)
Hoping, praying
For you to justify my love

I want to know you
Not like that
I don’t want to be your mother
I don’t want to be your sister either
I just want to be your lover
I want to be your baby
Kiss me, that’s right, kiss me

Wanting, needing, waiting
For you to justify my love
Yearning, burning
For you to justify my love

What are you gonna do?
What are you gonna do?
Talk to me, tell me your dreams
Am I in them?
Tell me your fears
Are you scared?
Tell me your stories
I’m not afraid of who you are
We can fly

Poor is the man
Whose pleasures depend
On the permission of another
Love me, that’s right, love me
I want to be your baby

Wanting, needing, waiting
For you to justify my love
I’m open and ready
For you to justify my love
To justify my love
Wanting, to justify
Waiting, to justify my love
Praying, to justify
To justify my love
To justify my love
I’m open, to justify my love
My love

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

Get My Groove Back

Her divorce was final and she had treated herself to a tropical vacation. She’s read all about how Stella got her groove back by going to Jamaica, now she was ready for an adventure of her own. Having left only the minimal contact information with a trusted friend at home that would only call her if someone died, she stepped out on her own to take a holiday that was simply a break from her life.
It was her first day here and she wanted to just take in the view from the comfort of her tiny balcony. This was a private resort that offered all the amenities she needed and now…well…there was some very pretty eye candy walking around the pool. Oh my, she thought, maybe this is how I’ll get my groove back.

I spy with my little eye
