“Who knows why it’s gotta be this way”

Trying to understand the bigger picture is harder than it seems. In the past, I got so focused, I could only see what was in front of me, so I missed what I needed to see.

Revolution

Okay, I also ignored what I needed to see too lol. The mind can be so convenient at times.

This is what you came for

Right now, my mind is on top of it because I am getting better at seeing the whole picture.

Music is what feelings sound like

And right now, I understand that I was pretty much an idiot when I was younger, so I can’t blame my young employees for making the same mistakes I did. I wish I could save them.

But such is life eh?

Speaking of which…

I used to have an active Second [social] Life. It was loads of fun in the beginning. I call it the SL gloss and that gloss wore out quite some time ago. Teaching was fun. Pretending to be a model was fun too. Isn’t it funny how we can change interests even in our Second Lives?

For instance, now, I log in solely to blog. If my old friends get my autoreply, chances are I really am in Photoshop, or I just don’t have anything to say. Regardless of what I am doing, I let my autoresponse do the talking.
How to be alone

Don’t get me wrong. There are a couple of people I miss chatting to. My old friend Tiff is one. The last time I ‘spoke’ to her, she was choreographing dances, which I think is so fun. You know how I love my animations. Anyway, if I could do that without the actually ‘talking’ to others, I totally would.

I mean, I could choreograph a dance or two and then blog it, but since I only hang out with myself (you’ve met Sunshine and Taco, my real life husband…I took control of his avatar a long time ago), it’s sort of computer intensive lol. I suppose I just wanted to say, if you get my autoresponse, it’s because I’m just here to relax and get away from my real life. Other times, I only have enough charm left at the end of the day for one. 😉

Yeah, I’m sober, sure I’m sane: Still your daughter still the same

If there is any fairy tale character I could really understand, I would have to say it’s Thumbelina. Before I get too deep, it’s due to my size. I swear to my husband that I’m five feet tall and he swears that I’m lying. Okay, so he knows me well but I know how men gauge inches so I thought I was safe! Really, the perfect height for me would be 5′ 4″ so I could wear flats. I can’t complain. Perhaps my mother wished for a tiny little child like Thumbelina’s mother  did?

Were you scared that I might get hurt

In spite of my size, I am the big boss lady at my workplace. I suppose I mastered my everything is okay face because my assistant manager claimed I was her hero due to my ability to handle everything in stride and be pleasant at the same time. Little does she know, but I am far from fine.

I'm losing my mind

She is younger than me, so I’m trying to play the good role model, but sometimes I wonder if it is ever okay to say I don’t give a fuck about your problems because I have my own?  At the same time, I love my life.

And I might be okay. But I'm not fine at all.

It’s really not so bad. Yes, my thoughts are a bit convoluted at times, but that’s the way  I roll and the only way I can fly. ಠ‿↼

It’s gonna be alright…

…because “I shake it off, I shake it off.” This is kind of embarrassing, but I literally shake my head to clear it off thoughts. I never really noticed it, of course, until my hubby pointed it out. Apparently, I also frown in my sleep. Thanks for letting me know husband. Ah, romance (actually, I think it is totally romantic to notice my subconscious moments). 😉

Shake it off.png

The whole point of my post is to point out my jacket, so disregard my ramblings! PurpleMoon Creations has one of the coolest jackets ever available at On9. The Iridescent jacket is materials ready, and I really wasn’t able to notice the real coolness until I logged on using the official SL Viewer. Now, mind you, it may be my graphics card because I am a frequent user of Phoenix and typically see everything I need to and want to.

See the green light in the picture above? It seems materials ready clothing adds the oomph to oh my.

I wore the lights (in my case green and purple) included in the package, but try going outside for a moveable light source to see the effects.

Click here’s your lift to On9.

“My, my, how the seasons go by…”

It’s my second fall in Las Vegas, Nevada. Sorry, I have to clarify the state because I’m from New Mexico. We have a Las Vegas too, but it’s not the glitter and glam of Sin City. Anyway, my first fall here was strange. I wasn’t sure what to expect. Now, I’ve noticed fall/winter wear paired with summer wear, and it’s typically warm on top and cool on the bottom.

My, my, how the seasons go by

Fall fashion has hit SL, but true to my new RL home, I mixed fall and summer. Actually, I did this in New Mexico too. Maybe it’s a desert upbringing? Regardless, PurpleMoon Creations‘ Sola Vest is cozy and chic and is available in a variety of patterns via a HUD, so you can go rawr or snuggly.  You’ll find the Sola Vest at Tres Chic until October 10th.  Click PurpleMoon at Tres Chic for your taxi.

Live and Let Die

August 22nd brings the most indulgent event of the year. The The Hottie Cooterati Experience revealed, “The Festival of Sin returns with a promise of debauchery in the form of the seven deadliest sins.” While I’ve been known to partake in a sin or two (or three), Greed struck home. Since moving to Las Vegas aka Sin City, sins run abound, but Greed is especially noticeable due to the giant casinos and the sheer amount of cash flow and desperation to hit it big.  I mean…there are slot machines inside Smith’s Grocery Store, CVS, and most gas stations!

Live and Let Die

When you hit the festival, you’ll find that seven neighborhoods symbolize each deadly sin. I actually loved walking around. Wrath was seedy and dirty. See the jail.  Lust was Moulin Rogue style where a newbie avatar dummy propositioned me. Envy reminded me of a white picket fence neighborhood, but the type of neighbors who secretly hate one another. I could go on and on, but you’ll have to see it for yourself. Make sure to hit Greed for the
Gacha machines and gift shop. While we all know Gacha machines are a gamble, the gift store has all kinds of free goodies.

What does it matter to ya?

The Festival of Sin opens tomorrow. Now, if you’re going to sin...you gotta do it well.  Join The Hottie Cooterati Experience group inworld for the 12 pm TP on August 22.  Group members always get first notice for any sponsored events. Live large and have fun. 😉

“Catch the wind, see us spin, sail away, leave today, way up high in the sky…”

Oh, I love fantasy fashion in Second Life. In fact, I walked around in Second Life today, while wearing PurpleMoon‘s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream Corset” and an avatar complimented my look! It threw me for a loop. Personally, it’s the total opposite of getting caught shopping in real life because I never look this good in real life. 😉

Catch the wind, see us spin, sail away, leave today, way up high in the sky

PurpleMoon’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream Corset” is available at The Instruments’ July round and comes in five shades: Pearl, White, Earth, Pink, and Aqua. A Hud drives the wing’s colors so you have the same color options, but you can also change the branches. Ooh, and don’t forget the Titania Sandals! They’re reminiscent of gladiator sandals, but they have a vixen edge.  July’s round at the Instruments ends on August 7th. This ensemble is only available at the Instruments, so click “I love fantasy fashion too” for your lift!
