Goodie Two Shoes

Goodie Two Shoes

With the heartbreak open
So much you can’t hide
Put on a little makeup, makeup
Make sure they get your good side, good side

If the words unspoken
Get stuck in your throat
Send a treasure token, token
Write it on a pound note, pound note

Goody two, goody two, goody goody two shoes
Goody two, goody two, goody goody two shoes

Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Subtle innuendos follow
There must be something inside

We don’t follow fashion
That’d be a joke
You know we’re going to set them, set them
So everyone can take note, take note

When they saw you kneeling
Crying words that you mean
Opening their eyeballs, eyeballs
Pretending that you’re Al Green, Al Green

Goody two, goody two, goody goody two shoes
Goody two, goody two, goody goody two shoes

Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Subtle innuendos follow
Must be something inside

No one’s gonna tell me
What’s wrong and what’s right
Or tell me who to eat with, sleep with
Or that I’ve won the big fight, big fight

Look out or they’ll tell you
You’re a “Superstar”
Two weeks and you’re an all-time legend
I think the games have gone much too far

If the words unspoken
Get stuck in your throat
Send a treasure token, token
Write it on a pound note, pound note

Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Don’t drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?
Subtle innuendos follow
Must be something inside

Goody Two Shoes‘ ~Adam Ant~

I know this song is nothing but complete fluff, but it was the 80’s…….nothing more needs to be said!The hair waas fluffy back then, too…..on both the guys and girls, and it was actually hard to tell them apart from the back. I love the term, ‘Big Hair Bands’, it’s so fitting for music of the time and I watch 80’s videos now and marvel at the amount of height, depth, and breadth hair could be formed in to. I could never quite manage to get my hair to do that, I don’t think I used enough gel or mousse in it. It’s always said, ‘what’s old is new again’, but I don’t think that hair’s going to come back in style, if you look at everything else that’s changed since then it’s all about getting smaller…..cars….computers…..electronics……..nothing really seems to get bigger…..except maybe the bad things.

So, this picture is definitely not about a goodie-two shoes…..oh…it’s about shoes, alright……and they’re great shoes but the woman who wears these can definitely tell Adam Ant to go to h*ll! These aren’t for the feint of heart with the sky high heels…….but they have perfect detailing with little buckles and they’re super shiny…..and sexy! These are ‘Xila’ from **UTOPIA@DESIGN** and are available now at the inaugural round of FaMESHed X. They come in a fatpack only that’s loaded with options including preset colours, 5 levels of glossiness, and lots of areas to customize with 10 colours. There’s no shortage of things to pair with these shoes at this new event with loads of designers offering everything from fashion, furniture, and anything else you might need to get your kink on! FaMESHed X runs until November 3.

I’m wearing the ‘Sideview Bodysuit’ from [Vale Koer] with the shoes. It’s one of my favourites mainly because it’s super sexy, showing the curves in the perfect way.

As always I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from the ‘Minor Obsessions’ set of poses from Le Poppycock and the props around me are from the ‘Photographer’ gacha from Bamse! It’s a great set to have…..I have it set up all the time which makes it handy for pictures!

Seminole Wind

Seminole Wind

Ever since the days of old,
Men would search for wealth untold.
They’d dig for silver and for gold,
And leave the empty holes.
And way down south in the Everglades,
Where the black water rolls and the saw grass sways.
The eagles fly and the otters play,
In the land of the Seminole.

So blow, blow Seminole wind,
Blow like you’re never gonna blow again.
I’m calling to you like a long lost friend
But I know who you are.
And blow, blow from the Okeechobee,
All the way up to Micanopy.
Blow across the home of the Seminole,
The alligators and the gar.

Progress came and took its toll,
And in the name of flood control,
They made their plans and they drained the land,
Now the glades are going dry.
And the last time I walked in the swamp,
I sat upon a Cypress stump,
I listened close and I heard the ghost,
Of Osceola cry.

So blow, blow Seminole wind,
Blow like you’re never gonna blow again.
I’m calling to you like a long lost friend
But I know who you are.
And blow, blow from the Okeechobee,
All the way up to Micanopy.
Blow across the home of the Seminole,
The alligators and the gar.

Seminole Wind‘ ~John Anderson~

I think this song is fitting since I’m at Black Bayou Lake for this picture. There’s such great vibes there and it’s really inspiring to me. I’ve always found beauty in non traditionally scenic places, because it’s not always about what I see…..it’s how it makes me feel! Since I’ve always lived in the prairies, where everyone says it’s flat and boring, I’ve always made a point of seeing and feeling my surroundings completely. I love the prairies, the huge sky…..wide open spaces and the vastness that makes a person feel very small in this world. So, when everyone’s going to the mountains to sightsee, I’ll be in the prairies, the deserts, and the swamps…….where there’s lots of beauty, if you choose to see it.

I’m wearing ‘Lea’s Biker Jacket’ in black from RKKN, here, along with the add on shirt. It’s available now at Shiny Shabby.

The ‘Stacey Jeans’ are from *Just BECAUSE* and available at FaMESHed.

The ‘G1204’ is from tram and one of my all time faves.

I’m using a pose from the ‘Paris’ set of poses from Ana Poses.

Broken Arrow

Broken Arrow

Who else is gonna bring you a broken arrow
Who else is gonna bring you a bottle of rain
There he goes moving across the water
There he goes turning my whole world around
Do you feel what I feel
Can we make that so it’s part of the deal
I gotta hold you in these arms of steel
Lay your heart on the line this time
I want to breathe when you breathe
When you whisper like that hot summer breeze
Count the beads of sweat that cover me
Didn’t you show me a sign this time
Who else is gonna bring you a broken arrow
Who else is gonna bring you a bottle of rain
There he goes moving across the water
There he goes turning my whole world around
Can you see what I see
Can you cut behind the mystery
I will meet you by the witness tree
Leave the whole world behind
I want to come when you call
I’ll get to you if I have to crawl
They can’t hold me with these iron walls
We’ve got mountains to climb
Who else is gonna bring you a broken arrow
Who else is gonna bring you a bottle of rain
There he goes moving across the water
There he goes turning my whole world around
Turning my whole world around

Broken Arrow‘ ~Robbie Robertson~

Today is ‘Twitter Trending’ day for me…..let me take a look and see what’s going on in the Twitterverse! Hmmmm…..there’s ‘Nashville’, ‘SundayFunday’ and , ‘Charles Wang’………oh wait….here’s a good one! #DeclineAPartyIn4Words ……that’s one I can relate to, not that anyone invites me to parties anymore. Anyone that would, knows that I won’t go, and they know not to put me in the situation of having to decline the invitation. I could just say, ‘no thanks, I’m busy’ but I unless I really am busy I just can’t say I am, when I’m not. I could be rude and say, No way, you suck’, but I hate being rude as much as I hate lying. I could make up all kinds of excuses like ‘no thanks, I’m pms’ing’ or ‘nope, I’m already drunk’. But really, even if the person asking knows nothing about me, they just have to look into my eyes and see my ‘deer in the headlights’ look and they should automatically decline for me! It’s not that I’m not friendly, I just don’t like parties, or going out, or being with people, or people! 😀

Vrir and I just standing out on the deck watching the world go by, which is much more interesting while wearing lingerie, which is from the ‘Diana’ set from /erratic/. I obviously can’t keep my hands off of Vrir, he’s in the newest suit from Deadwool…..and mmm mmmm mm……he’s looking hawt! 😀

We’re using the gift pose from HCXII, which is available at the Pose Fair, which runs until the end of the month.

Breathe Me

Breathe Me

Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
Hurt myself again today
And the worst part is there’s no one else to blame

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Ouch, I have lost myself again
Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found,
Yeah, I think that I might break
Lost myself again and I feel unsafe

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Breathe Me‘ ~Sia~

This song says it all today, it speaks for me. I’m so lucky to have a man in my life who does all of these, and more…..freely. ♥

The newest release from Carol G Tattoo Studio is the ‘Aura’ tattoo exclusive to the Dubai Event. The front is as beautiful as the back and there’s more on the wrists and arms to make it complete. It’s a highly complex work or art and every time I look at it I see different details not seen on first glance. It comes in black(seen here), henna, and blue and is compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven.

The ‘H0531’ hair is from tram.

And I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

Vrir and I are using the ‘She’s Like a Fox’ couples pose from Ana Poses. It’s a pose we could really feel with it’s gentleness and comfort.

The Stand

The Stand

All our times have come
Here but now they’re gone
Seasons don’t fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain… we can be like they are
Come on baby… don’t fear the reaper
Baby take my hand… don’t fear the reaper
We’ll be able to fly… don’t fear the reaper
Baby I’m your man…

La la la la la
La la la la la

Valentine is done
Here but now they’re gone
Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity… Romeo and Juliet
40,000 men and women everyday… Like Romeo and Juliet
40,000 men and women everyday… Redefine happiness
Another 40,000 coming everyday… We can be like they are
Come on baby… don’t fear the reaper
Baby take my hand… don’t fear the reaper
We’ll be able to fly… don’t fear the reaper
Baby I’m your man…

La la la la la
La la la la la

Love of two is one
Here but now they’re gone
Came the last night of sadness
And it was clear she couldn’t go on
Then the door was open and the wind appeared
The candles blew and then disappeared
The curtains flew and then he appeared… saying don’t be afraid
Come on baby… and she had no fear
And she ran to him… then they started to fly
They looked backward and said goodbye… she had become like they are
She had taken his hand… she had become like they are
Come on baby… don’t fear the reaper

(Don’t Fear) The Reaper‘ ~Blue Oyster Cult~

Vrir and I have discovered we have an uncanny amount things in common, and a love for Stephen King books are one of them! The Stand has always been my favourite, the storytelling is superb, the characters are completely believable, and it’s the ultimate good vs evil story. It’s a long one, but when I’m finished it I’m sorry it’s over. I’ve read it a countless number of times, the old original paperback is my favourite one to read, although I do have the expanded version in hardcover, and have read it too. With it having been made into a movie and mini series, I’ve managed to avoid watching either and I don’t plan to. For me, Stu, Larry, Glen, Tom, and Nick will always be as I see them in my minds eye, because there’s no actor that could do them justice. Molly Ringwald being cast as ‘Fran’ is a prime example…..I mean……Molly Ringwald?…..wtf! 😀 So, here’s my version of our re-creation of the book cover of ‘The Stand’…..we had a lot of fun doing it, but there was no way I going to let him kiss me in that getup!

For my ‘good’ outfit I have the ‘End of Days Tunic’ from !APHORISM!, the ‘Medievil Female Boots, Light’ from Caverna Obscura, and the ‘Shortfall’ hair from the ‘Falling’ gacha set by Tableau Vivant. My pose is from ‘The White Wolf’ set of poses from POSEIDON and Vrir’s pose is from the ‘Yandere’ set from Le Poppycock.

We’re at Mother Road for this desert shot!
