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

Something There

It had been such a long day at work. All she could think about was going home, letting her hair down and getting in the pool. She loved nothing more than lounging around the pool in evenings and tonight would be no exception. She even had a new bikini, not that anyone was going to see it…well, unless her hot new neighbor happened to join her. She still wasn’t sure if her neighbor was even into girls, but the company would be nice either way. A few drinks might bring out the truth and she had plenty to choose from, there was something there…whether her neighbor felt it or not, she sure as hell did.

Are You That Somebody?

So often when I’m blogging I’m listening to music or watching movies, but today I just shot the photo and thought to myself how I look both sweet and naughty at the same time. I immediately knew that this would be a song post and I’ve got just the song. Naturally, I’ve given the YouTube link as well as the lyrics…and you have to choice to listen, read, or skip to the credits. Either way, happy shopping!♥

Banks Are You That Somebody
(originally by Aaliyah)

Boy,
I’ve been Watching You
Like a hawk in the sky
That flies,
And You were my prey
Boy, I promise you
If we keep bumpin’ heads
I know that one of these days
We gone hook it up
Probably talk on the phone
But see I don’t know if that’s good
I’ve been holding back
This secret from you
I Probably shouldn’t letcha

If I,
If I let you know
You can’t tell nobody
I’m talking bout nobody
Are you responsible?
Boy you betta watch my body
I’m not just anybody
Is it my go, Is it your go
Sometimes I’m a goody goody
Right now I’m a naughty naughty
Say Yes or Say No
Cause I really need somebody
Tell me are you that somebody, Eh
Eheheheheheh Eh Eh…

Boy,
Won’t you pick me up at the park right now
Up the block while everyone
Sleep, Sleep, Sleep
I’ll be waiting there
With my trench, my lugz, My hat
Just so I’m low key
If you tell the world
Oh Boy,
See I’m trusting you
With my Heart, my Soul
I probably shouldn’t letcha, If I

If I,
If I let you know
You can’t tell nobody
I’m talking bout nobody
I hope you responsible
Boy you betta watch my body
I’m not just anybody
Is it my go, Is it your go
Sometimes I’m a goody goody
Right now I’m a naughty naughty
Say yes or say no
Cause I really need somebody
Tell me are you that somebody, Eh
Eheheheheheh Eh Eh…

Baby girl,
I’m the girl from the big LA
But you come play around my way
And listen to what I gotta say
UK
You’ve been down from the start
That’s why you got my heart
Ever since we departed

Baby girl,
Betta known as Aaliyah
Them play haters have fevers
Getting goosebumps in our fevers
And don’t you know
You gotta tell somebody
Cause I really need somebody
Tell me are you that somebody, Eh

If I let you know
You can’t tell nobody
I’m talking bout nobody
I hope you’re responsible
Boy you betta watch my body
I’m not just anybody
Is it my go, Is it your go
Sometimes I’m a goody goody
Right now I’m a naughty naughty
Say yes or say no
Cause I really need somebody
Tell me are you that somebody, Eh
Eheheheheheh Eh Eh…

Sweet Dreams

Many years ago, seems more like a lifetime ago, I had a roommate that kept chocolates in her nightstand. At first I thought it was strange that she had chocolates at all, as she was very weight conscious to the point that her other friends and I would worry about her. However, she had quite a few nightly habits that I learned about over time. The chocolates were just one of them. You see, her thing with the chocolates was that she would eat one or two each night before bed. She said that was to insure she had sweet dreams. I did try this little trick and sometimes I can do it, but sadly, I’m much like my friend Tracy and I cannot stop with just one of two. I end up eating like five! Okay, Tracy would eat the whole bag, but this isn’t really about her. *laughs* Okay, its not really about anything, except me wishing all those that remember their dreams to have sweet ones, cuz I’m pretty sure I’ve cornered the market on weird ones and nightmares.

Most Girls

“You know some days you feel so good in your own skin
But it’s okay if you wanna change the body that you came in
‘Cause you look greatest when you feel like a damn queen
We’re all just playing a game in a way, trying to win at life”
Hailee Steinfeld – Most Girls

If you’re a girl, you’ve had to have heard it at least once in your life, “You’re not like most girls.” Of course, I’m not. We’re all different. There are some common factors though and I think that proves true in Second Life more than anywhere else, because in SL most girls want their avatar to be the epitome of beauty as they see it. Oh sure, there are lots of us looking around at other girls in SL thinking, “WTF?” Truth be told, they either love the way they look or they’re simply having fun with their avatar and probably change their avatars regularly. Even if we think an avatar is outdated with bling and/or flexi hair/clothes…a system body/head…perhaps those girls simply don’t like the look of mesh or maybe their computers can’t handle it. Its not for me to say and sure, I’m guilty of giggling with my friends about other avatars, but at the end of the day…who is to say they’re not giggling at us? I’m not trying to make anyone feel guilty for the giggles, so long as those giggles and remarks are kept among friends. I’m not even saying that I won’t do it anymore, because I know I will. What I am saying is that we all have something about our avatars that someone else doesn’t like, but so long as we’re happy with ourselves…our avatars…our representations in a virtual world…THAT is what matters the most, isn’t it? So, if you have a tall thin avatar that resembles an anorexic runway model in the real world, but you love it…good for you and don’t you let anyone change your mind about that. If you have the enormous boobs and butt with the itty bitty waist, but you love it…good. There’s enough body shaming in the real world. Don’t you dare let anyone tell you that your avatar isn’t right, if YOU love it. Now, if you don’t love it…might I suggest you peruse some blogs and create a look you will love? *grins* Oh, just go enjoy the song, do some shopping, and laugh…it is Friday after all…hell, have a drink or five. Live your life and stop worrying about what most girls and doing and be you. ♥

Holiday Weekend!

Whether you live in the U.S. and observe Memorial Day (not really a celebratory event) or in the UK where they have a bank holiday (that no one seems to know the reason for) or maybe you live somewhere else with a holiday today….for most people its been a three day weekend. In the US, regardless of the reason, a three day weekend usually means a cookout! It means a day outside, unless you live where I do at the moment….and here it simply means rain. Fortunately for me, I discovered (thanks to Facebook) a very cool new-ish weather app called WTForecast! This makes me laugh to no end and I’m sure my FB friends are quite tired of seeing me share my weather posts, but they are FUNNY! Okay, clearly I’m off track…*takes a minute to read back*….oh yeah, I was going to write about the different holidays. Nothing to really say about the bank holiday, cuz the only thing I can find about it is some jibberish about bank holidays in general, not an actual reason for this one in particular. Memorial Day, however, really should be considered a more somber occasion as its a day to recognize those that died while serving their country. But in the U.S. we are soooo commercialized its usually more like a day for sales and cookouts! Its a patriotic holiday at best, so I’ve donned some red, white, and blue….because like most Americans *hangs her head* I wasn’t thinking about what the holiday actually is, just that it was a three day weekend and what usually happens on three day weekends.
On that note, I am grateful for all the people that have served my country and my heart goes out to all the families of those lost to battles on our behalf. It is because of them that selfish little people like myself can forget the true nature of the day and enjoy the freedoms that their service affords me. Thank you.

A Broken Phone Booth

“Am I alive or thoughts that drift away?
Does summer come for everyone?
Can humans do as prophets say?
And if I die before I learn to speak
Can money pay for all the days I lived awake
But half asleep?”
Primitive Radio Gods – Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand

This is one of those songs that I’ve probably heard at least 100 times. I liked it a lot. The chorus is quite catchy with the lyrics like:
“I’ve been downhearted baby,
I’ve been downhearted baby,
Ever since the day we met”

and the “Do do do do do do”

However, it wasn’t until I looked up the actual lyrics that I was truly moved by the poetry of it. The melody is certainly hypnotic, but now I think its going to be one of my favorite songs all because I took the time to really read the lyrics in a stand alone manner, like poetry. Which, of course, is something I can truly appreciate as I used to write quite a bit of poetry and on occasion, I still do. I even have another blog for my poetry, that I’ve sadly neglected for a very long time.
I was talking to Josh about writing last night and of course, he’s very supportive and encouraging, but I simply don’t have the drive I once did for such things. My own poetic words have abandoned me, but alas I’m still full of cra…erhm…I mean plenty of random musings like this one.

Anyway, I’d like to wrap up this post with a moment of silence as I send positive thoughts, love & healing light to all of those in Manchester…what happened last night was an immense tragedy and while it breaks my heart that this has happened at all. The way the English people came together to assist one another somehow manages to restore just a little of my faith in humanity and the strength of communities.
