Let’s Take Another Selfie!

I have to say that while the duck faces and bathroom mirror selfies are really amusing and tacky. I am grateful for the fact that our smart phones have helped us perfect those self portrait photos. I remember holding cameras up to take pics with friends and hoping for the best, only to find us headless when the photos were finally developed. I remember waiting a week for photos to get developed. It’s amazing how such a simple thing has changed our lives so dramatically. Just think, there are people alive today that know nothing about having to rewind film and dropping it off to have it developed into 4×6 prints…doubles if you were willing to pay extra! Now not only can we take accurate selfies, but we can take pictures of ourselves taking selfies! *giggles*

Therapy Session

So, I don’t write about everything I’m going through, but I do write about a fair bit. Some things are too personal…yes, even I have boundaries. *laughs* I draw my inspiration for words, photos, layouts….from a variety of places. Often it is just a violent mixture of the madness swirling about in my mind, but when my fingers meet the keys and I’m staring at this blank page…somehow I usually find a way to let something out. You see, blogging isn’t a JOB for me. Its a way of life. I’m honored that you’re interested enough to read any of it ever, but I really don’t write for YOU….I write for ME….and I am very well known for having full on arguments out loud with myself.
If all of my sponsors pulled away from me and I was suddenly dismissed from all of my blog manager jobs….none of that would stop me. Actually, my photos would probably take a seriously artistic turn around the corner. I was recently told that I need to be more professional in Second Life. Fuck that. I’m not here to be fake. This is the one place I can be completely free to be me….on every level. I don’t care for your judgement.  I was told not to be friends with my bloggers. I’ve been told I’m too mean. I’m too picky. I’m too soft. I’m too nice. I try too hard. I don’t try hard enough. Here’s the thing though…I’m not here to please anyone but me. Call it selfish, fuck you….what are YOU here for? You here to help humanity? No, you’re not. You might do some good while you’re here, but lets face it…we all found our way to broken toys and those of us that actually live here? We know.
So, if you don’t like me, that’s ok…I don’t always like me either. You think I got issues? No, Baby, I got motherfucking subscriptions and my father owns the publication. *gasps* Yeah, I said it….this is MY therapy session and if you don’t like it….uhm….part of me wants to apologize, but how can I be sorry for being me. I got enough people that love me to know, I’m not that bad…but hey, s’ok…I don’t gotta make you happy. That’s your job, isn’t it? I’ll be over here taking care of mine…maybe our worlds will collide…maybe they’ll mingle and make music. For now, this is the end of this therapy session.

rain brings truth
I mean, I think sometimes people they confuse what I’m doing
I write about life, I write about things that I’m actually dealing with
Something that I’m actually experiencing, this is real for me
Like this is something that personally helps me as well

Freeze Frame

It’s 1am and I’m awake doing a blog post. I hope you don’t expect too much from me at this hour. However, I will give you this…
Before there was Vogue by Madonna, there was Freeze Frame by J. Geils Band and we “struck a pose” and “freezed framed” to this song quite a bit. Mind you, I was a kid when this song came out, but it was definitely a catchy tune. Enjoy♥

J. Geils Band – Freeze Frame

Freeze-frame

I could see it was a rough-cut Tuesday
Slow-motion weekdays stare me down
Her lipstick reflex got me wound
There were no defects to be found
Snapshot image froze without a sound

Thursday mornin’ was a hot flash-factor
Her face still focused in my mind
Test-strip proof-sheet love is hard to find
Friday night, we’ll dance the spotlight grind
Stop-time heart for me if she’s not mine

Freeze-frame! (Freeze-frame!) [x3]
Freeze-frame! Now Freeze!

Now I’m lookin’ at a flashback Sunday
Zoom lens feelings just won’t disappear
Close-up darkroom sweet-talk in my ear
Her hot-spot love for me is strong
This freeze-frame moment can’t be wrong

Freeze-frame! (Freeze-frame!) [x3]
Freeze-frame! Now Freeze!

Freeze-frame! (Freeze-frame!) [x3]
Freeze-frame! Now Freeze!

Freeze-frame, freeze-frame, freeze-frame
Freeze-frame, start to freeze, freeze, freeze

Start to freeze, freeze
Freeze-frame, freeze-frame, freeze-frame

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.

Soaking Up The Sun

Summer is almost here and that means bikini season! This makes me so freaking happy, because I just love drinking margaritas by the pool and hanging out with friends…half naked friends. Rebel Hope has made some of my favorite bikinis to date and her offering at the Fifth Anniversary of FaMESHed is no exception. Its a fatpack must have! Fortunately, Trompe Loeil also has an amazing pool/patio combo so I don’t have to go far to lounge around in my new bikini!
Of course, these are just more things that I can only do in a virtual world. In the real world, my skin is so fair its translucent. Seriously, you can see my veins. If I spend more than ten minutes in the sun, I’m well on my way to a sunburn. On a rare occasion that sunburn it totally worth it…even if after the burn is gone, I feel like a snake shedding its skin for the following month.

Ride

My friend, Kobie, recently blogged his girlfriend and one of my best friends, Grace Sixpence. I loved the idea so much that I’ve decided to do the same. Today, I’m blogging Tracy Redangel.  You see, she’s had a tremendous impact on my life and despite the way I pick at her on Facebook…she is priceless to me. She had no idea what I was writing about when I asked her to pose with me for these pictures. I’m sneaky that way and if she actually reads this post, she’s probably starting to sniffle, because despite her fiery red headed reputation…she does have a soul and it is as deep as any ocean you can imagine.

She and I had a bit of a rocky start, but one late night Skype conversation altered the paths of our Second Lives forever and I couldn’t be more grateful. This woman aggravates me, supports me, loves me, and makes me laugh way too hard. (yes, when she makes me laugh so hard I can’t breathe, that’s too hard) She truly is my late night partner in crime and encourages trouble at every turn. I ♥ Tracy! She’s really amazing and lets my torment roll off her back like water on a duck, because she’s been through enough in her life to know when to take someone seriously and when to shrug it off. Yeah, I envy that about her, too. She’s as beautiful inside as she is outside and to make matter worse? That’s true in BOTH worlds! I’ll give you a minute to hate her, but then you’ve got to come back and lover her as much as I do. ♥

ride-2

As Tracy and I became closer, we decided to put each other in our profiles. We didn’t talk about it. We just did it and happened to notice that we both did it around the same time. When I saw what she wrote and the song she chose for me…I cried for over an hour. She knows me and gets me like no one ever has. I should hope that you all have a friend this amazing someday, if not now. (I’ve added the song to the bottom of the post.) From beginning to end, it fits me pretty damn well…just like Tracy. Never let it be said that true bonds aren’t built in a virtual world, because this is one person I intend to keep in my life forever. I am blessed with a multitude of incredible friends, but Tracy is one of my absolute best friends which makes her extra special. Yes, in the short bus, hockey helmet way, but in other ways, too. *winks*

ride-3

So, you’re looking at a lot of stuff in these pictures. Let me start with the scene, because while I didn’t use the pose included, I did use the backdrop provided with the Riders pose set from Come Soon. Its one of the things I love about their poses. You get these incredible scenes that you can use repeatedly with other poses. The bikes are from Optmus Race and come with an endless array of couple’s poses. Yes, you can also drive them!  Now, as most people know, my friends and I are shopaholics. Tracy are those hud humpers that must get into an event as soon as humanly possible. So, all the deets for our ensembles are below and if they’re currently at an event, the link is there for that, too. Happy Shopping! ♥

Blue Skies

Blue days, all of them gone
Nothin’ but blue skies from now on
Blue skies smilin’ at me
Nothin’ but blue skies do I see ~Ella Fitgerald’s “Blue Skies”

Although Summer has not officially started, the weather where I live is nice and the pool is open. The beaches are filling up. Its beautiful outside almost every single day. I personally have been dealt with more than my fair share of metaphorically dark clouds and I’ve made the decision to embrace those blue skies and focus on my blessings rather that all the things I could easily consider curses.

For example, I recently found out that someone very close to me fed me a ton of lies, but upon revealing the truths I was reunited with some very dear and wonderful friends from my past. So, I might have lost one friend, but I gained three in return. If that’s not a blessing, I don’t know what is….so bring on the blue skies, cuz that’s all I want to see! *lifts a margarita* Here’s to blue skies for us all! ❤
