But The Eyes…

But The Eyes...

You take your white finger
Slide the nail under the top and bottom buttons of my blazer
Relax the fraying wool, slacken ties and I’m
Not to look at you in the shoe
But the eyes
Find the eyes

Find me and follow me through corridors, refectories and files
You must follow, leave this academic factory
You will find me in the matinée, the dark of the matinée
It’s better in the matinée, the dark of the matinée is mine
Yes, it’s mine

I time every journey
To bump into you accidentally, I charm you and tell you
Of the boys I hate, all the girls I hate, all the words I hate
All the clothes I hate, how I’ll never be anything I hate
You smile, mention something that you like

Oh, how you’d have a happy life if you did the things you like
Find me and follow me through corridors, refectories and files
You must follow, leave this academic factory
You will find me in the matinée, the dark of the matinée
It’s better in the matinée, the dark of the matinée is mine
Yes, it’s mine

So I’m on BBC Two now
Telling Terry Wogan how I made it and
What I made is unclear now
But his deference is and his laughter is
My words and smile are so easy now
Yes, it’s easy now, yes, it’s easy now

Find me and follow me through corridors, refectories and files
You must follow, leave this academic factory
You will find me in the matinée, dark of the matinée
It’s better in the matinée, the dark of the matinée
You will find me and follow me through corridors, refectories and files
You must follow, leave this academic factory
You will find me in the matinée, the dark of the matinée
Better in the matinée, the dark of the matinée is mine
Yes, it’s mine

Cover Me

Cover Me

The times are tough now, just getting tougher
This old world is rough, it’s just getting rougher
Cover me, come on baby, cover me
Well I’m looking for a lover who will come on in and cover me
Promise me baby you won’t let them find us
Hold me in your arms, let’s let our love blind us
Cover me, shut the door and cover me
Well I’m looking for a lover who will come on in and cover me

Outside’s the rain, the driving snow
I can hear the wild wind blowing
Turn out the light, bolt the door
I ain’t going out there no more

This whole world is out there just trying to score
I’ve seen enough I don’t want to see any more
Cover me, come on and cover me
I’m looking for a lover who will come on in and cover me
Looking for a lover who will come on in and cover me

Cover Me‘ ~Bruce Springsteen~

I’m not looking anymore! ♥♥♥

All Summer Long

All Summer Long

It was 1989
My thoughts were short my hair was long
Caught somewhere between a boy and man
She was seventeen
And she was far from in-between
It was summertime in Northern Michigan

Splashing through the sand bar
Talking by the campfire
It’s the simple things in life, like when and where
We didn’t have no Internet
But, man, I never will forget
The way the moonlight shined upon her hair

And we were trying different things
We were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favorite song
Sipping whiskey out the bottle
Not thinking ’bout tomorrow
Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long

Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long

Catching Walleye from the dock
Watching the waves roll off the rocks
She’ll forever hold a spot inside my soul
We’d blister in the sun
We couldn’t wait for night to come
To hit that sand and play some rock and roll

While we were trying different things
And we were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favorite song
Sipping whiskey out the bottle
Not thinking ’bout tomorrow
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long

Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long

Sweet Home Alabama
Turn it up

Now nothing seems as strange
As when the leaves began to change
Or how we thought those days would never end
Sometimes I hear that song
And I start to sing along
And think, man, I’d love to see that girl again

Man, I’d like to see that girl again

And we were trying different things
And we were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favorite song
Sipping whiskey out the bottle
Not thinking ’bout tomorrow
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long

We were trying different things
And we were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favorite song
Sipping whiskey out the bottle
Not thinking ’bout tomorrow
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long

All Summer Long‘ ~Kid Rock~

Does anyone have a summer like this to remember? I know I don’t……I remember the summer of ’89 and it was so far away from this it’s not even funny. I like to think that this kind of summer is just a myth that people talk about and wish they had, but it’s really just a fairytale. Maybe a person has to be carefree in the first place, regardless of age, in which case there was never a chance for me to experience this kind of freedom. If I happened to be in this situation one summer at a lake I’d be worried about getting too much sun, drinking and boating which is never a good idea, does my butt look big in this bathing suit?, since I’m not a very good swimmer I’d be worried about standing near the edge of the dock in case someone pushes me in, and if I did go into the water my naturally curly hair would dry into a tangled mess that resembles a Kurly Kate Stainless Steel Sponge(yes, that’s their official name)! 😀 Is it too late to have a day like this? Maybe I could find a bunch of people, head to the lake and recreate this video, smoking funny things and drinking whiskey from the bottle. I’m sure it’s worth a try, but I’m not sure anyone would want to watch……it’s not gonna to be pretty! 😛

I’m wearing the top from the newest group gift from Blueberry along with the ‘Liberty Denim Shorts’ from Tres Blah and the ‘G0718’ hair from tram.

I’m at Grauland for this shot!

Get Lucky

Get Lucky

Like the legend of the Phoenix
All ends with beginnings
What keeps the planets spinning (uh)
The force from the beginning

(Look)

We’ve come too far to give up who we are
So let’s raise the bar and our cups to the stars

She’s up all night to the sun
I’m up all night to get some
She’s up all night for good fun
I’m up all night to get lucky

The present has no ribbon
Your gift keeps on giving,
What is this I’m feeling?
If you wanna leave I’m with it (ah)

We’ve come too far to give up who we are
So let’s raise the bar and our cups to the stars

She’s up all night to the sun
I’m up all night to get some
She’s up all night for good fun
I’m up all night to get lucky

(We’re up all night to get (together)
We’re up all night to get (let’s get funked again)
We’re up all night to get lucky
We’re up all night to get lucky)

We’ve (we’re up all night to get lucky)
Come too far (we’re up all night to get lucky)
To give up (we’re up all night to get lucky)
Who we are (we’re up all night to get lucky)
So let’s (we’re up all night to get lucky)
Raise the bar (we’re up all night to get lucky)
And our cups (we’re up all night to get lucky)
To the stars (we’re up all night to get lucky)

She’s up all night to the sun
I’m up all night to get some
She’s up all night for good fun
I’m up all night to get lucky

Get Lucky‘ ~Daft Punk feat. Pharrell Williams & Nile Rodgers~

‘The Lioness’ Tattoo’ is from Wild Roots! It’s feminine and majestic and looks wonderful when wearing any midriff baring outfit. It comes with 3 ink tones and it’s compatible with the Maitreya, Belleza, and TMP mesh bodies plus anything that’s Omega driven.

Vrir and I are using the ‘Touch Me’ bento pose from CKEY Poses. It’s complex hand positions make for perfect pictures and with only a little adjustment it fit our avatars easily. It’s available now at the Pose Fair: After Dark which runs until August 31.

I’m wearing the ‘Elena Outfit from Vanilla Bae.

Where Is My Mind

Where is My Mind

With your feet on the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
But there’s nothing in it
And you’ll ask yourself

Where is my mind? [3x]

Way out in the water
See it swimmin’

I was swimmin’ in the Caribbean
Animals were hiding behind the rock
Except the little fish
But they told me, he swears
Tryin’ to talk to me, to me, to me.

Where is my mind? [3x]

Way out in the water
See it swimmin’

With your feet on the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
If there’s nothing in it
And you’ll ask yourself

Where is my mind? [3x]

Way out in the water
See it swimmin’

Oh
With your feet on the air and your head on the ground
Oh
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Oh
Oh

Where Is My Mind‘ ~Shaun Morgan feat. Staind and Saint Asonia(Pixies cover)~

Where, indeed, is my mind? I’ve not been taking as many pictures in-world of late, and it’s not for lack of trying. I’ve struggled with inspiration at times, but when I’m inspired I’m just not happy with the results, so I have lots of pictures but none that I deem good enough to show you. Maybe my mind just isn’t into it as much with real life a little bit busier with the feeling of fall in the air! Yea….I know….it’s only the middle of August, wtf does it feel like fall for? Well, it does….regardless of what the calendar says the Sandhill Cranes are on their way south, the crops are all golden and nearly ready for harvest, and although the garden isn’t nearly as good as most years, there are some things to preserve for the coming winter months. The nights have been quite chilly with a risk of frost for the last 4 or 5 days, so it feels like we’re on borrowed time right now. I can live with summer coming to an end, I just hope for a long fall………not an early winter with snow in early October to start the long dark winter. But I guess no matter what I’m hoping for, I know it’ll be what it’ll be, regardless of how much I cross my fingers, wish on a fall star or carry a lucky rabbits foot. Why a lucky rabbits foot….it sure wasn’t lucky for that rabbit!!

I’m wearing the ‘Widowmaker Robe and Lingerie’ set from [Cynful] Clothing & Company, which are sold separately.

The ‘G1224’ hair is from tram.

My look all starts with the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.
