Come With Me Now

Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna take you down
Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna show you how

Afraid to lose control
And caught up in this world
I’ve wasted time, I’ve wasted breath
I think I’ve thought myself to death

I was born without this fear
Now only this seems clear
I need to move, I need to fight
I need to lose myself tonight

Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna take you down
Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna show you how

I think with my heart and I move with my head
I open my mouth and it’s something I’ve read
I stood at this door before, I’m told
But a part of me knows that I’m growing too old

Confused what I thought with something I felt
Confuse what I feel with something that’s real
I tried to sell my soul last night
Funny, he wouldn’t even take a bite

Come With Me Now‘ ~KONGOS~

This is just an excerpt of the lyrics, since they were long and there was much repeating. This is an easy song to sing along with, even without having the lyrics in front of you. I’m one of those people that doesn’t need to know the words to sing along with a song. Sure, I’ve butchered the lyrics of many good songs, but back in the day there really was no choice! You sang what you thought you heard, whether it made sense or not. If I have no clue, I then just say gibberish to make it sound like I know what I’m talking about. Hey, I’m the girl that sings along with songs in languages other than English, and I make them sound equally terrible as the ones I know. I come from a family where singing Happy Birthday to someone is something we’d never do with anyone but ourselves, we’re terrible. Most of us out of tune, I’m always lagging a little bit so I finish last and my sister tries to harmonize, but since no one’s in tune there’s no one to harmonize with. I think I’m a great singer in the shower, but my shower’s like outer space…..it’s in there that no one can hear me scream!

You know I’m all about love, well…..I guess not ALL about it! I don’t love a lot of things in this world, but the general message I try to convey is LOVE! So, the new release from !NFINITY is perfect for me! The ‘Love Necklace, exclusive to The Dollhouse which comes in glad and silver and it’s unrigged and scripted for easy resizing. The Dollhouse runs until 8 SM SLT May 20. I’m including the ad for it so you can get a closer look at it! (click on the picture to blow it up real good!)

Ha, I’ve finally done it! I’m wearing a man-bun! This is ‘B78’ from DURA Hair and I think it looks pretty darn cute! I mean, buns were for girls first, right?

The ‘Basic Tank’, from Tres Blah, is just what it’s called! Which is perfect since Ilove basic styles that can be worn with anything, and since it’s almost summer in some places it’s tank top time!

The simple ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink. I wear the HUD for it all the time since it’s become one that I feel naked without!

The ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone, with freckles, is from The Skinnery, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the four eye shadows from the ‘Sexy Smokey Shadow’ set from MILA.

I’m using a pose from the ‘Melaina’ set of poses from entangled poses.

I’m hanging out at my favourite place here, Isle of May.

Wild Horses

Childhood living is easy to do
The things you wanted I bought them for you
Graceless lady you know who I am
You know I can’t let you slide through my hands
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn’t drag me away
I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or offstage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn’t drag me away
I know I dreamed you a sin and a lie
I have my freedom but I don’t have much time
Faith has been broken, tears must be cried
Let’s do some living after we die
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we’ll ride them some day
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we’ll ride them some day

Wild Horses‘ ~The Rolling Stones, feat. Eddie Vedder~

I’ve never been a fan of The Rolling Stones, they’ve just never appealed to me, but while winding my way through songs on YouTube I came across this version of Wild Horses, and since most of the songs that are picked for me include Eddie Vedder, I’m surprised I hadn’t seen it before now. My love of EV far surpasses my dislike for Mick Jagger et al. so I had to have a look and a listen. I have to admit…..I really like this version. This song is already one that I could like, but having EV singing it makes it a hit in my books! I think he’s performed with just about everyone at some point in time. He’s with Tom Petty for “The Waiting’ and he rocks ‘Highway to Hell’ with Bruce Springsteen. He helps REM with ‘Man on the Moon’ at their HOF induction, and he was with Roger Waters for ‘Comfortably Numb’. He sang ‘Redemption Song’ with Beyoncè, and ‘You Can Close Your Eyes’ with Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks. I’ve watched the video of him with Neil Young performing ‘Rockin’ in the Free World’ and it was rockin’! Yup….EV can sing pretty much anything with anyone and sound great. On another topic, of absolutely no interest to anyone, is the fact that I used to have a couple of horses and one was kinda wild! I’ve thought about getting one or two again, but just haven’t done it, yet. I like horses, but they’ve never been my number one love, cows always came first for me. I think it’s the fact that horses are sneaky! I could just about always predict a cows movements…but a horse was always full of surprises, and when one is on their back….surprises are not welcome!

I did a little bit of inventory diving today and look what I found! The ‘Elias Bracelet’ from !NFINITY is men’s size when you add it, but with the resize script in it I easily got it down to size for me. It includes left and right versions, black or brown strap and it’s HUD driven with 5 metals and 10 gem stone colours. You can find it on Market Place or at the !NFINITY main store.

The ‘G0911’ hair is from tram. Since I’ve been wearing this skin I’ve bought half of the tram store!

The ‘Bella Tank Top’ is from Tres Blah. This is the ‘nude’ version.

You can only see the waistband of the ‘Kimi Skirt’ from Blueberry, but trust me…it’s snug and short. Makes me feel casually sexy!

And this skin that I’m wearing? It’s ‘Maddie’ in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery. I’m wearing the freckles version and it’s on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the 4 eye shadows from ‘Shoreline Set’ from War Paint.

This is pose 83 from MILA.

I’m at one of my favourite sims right now, Isle of May.

Waiting for Superman

She’s watching the taxi driver, he pulls away
She’s been locked up inside her apartment a hundred days

She says, “Yeah, he’s still coming, just a little bit late.
He got stuck at the laundromat washing his cape.”
She’s just watching the clouds roll by and they spell her name
Like Lois Lane
And she smiles, oh the way she smiles

She’s talking to angels,
Counting the stars
Making a wish on a passing car
She’s dancing with strangers,
Falling apart
Waiting for Superman to pick her up
In his arms, yeah, in his arms, yeah
Waiting for Superman

She’s out on the corner trying to catch a glimpse
Nothing’s making sense
She’s been chasing an answer, a sign lost in the abyss,
This Metropolis

She says, “Yeah, he’s still coming, just a little bit late.
He got stuck at the Five and Dime saving the day.”
She says, “If life was a movie, then it wouldn’t end like this,
Left without a kiss.”
Still, she smiles, oh, the way she smiles, yeah

She’s talking to angels,
Counting the stars
Making a wish on a passing car
She’s dancing with strangers,
She’s falling apart
Waiting for Superman to pick her up
In his arms, yeah, in his arms, yeah
She’s waiting for Superman…

…to lift her up and take her anywhere
Show her love and flying through the air
Save her now before it’s too late tonight
Oh, at the speed of light
And she smiles

Waiting for Superman‘ ~Daughtry~

The ‘Florid Panties’ are from Nui. There’s a matching bra and the detailing is incredible.

The thigh high boots are ‘KALISKA’ from UTOPIA DESIGN. They have several shine options and the supple leather and high level of detail make these my go-to boots!

The ‘Kef’ hair is from [BAD HAIR DAY].

My new skin is ‘Maddie’ from The Skinnery, on the ‘Lilo’ mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is pose 18 from MILA.

Where Have I Gone Wrong

‘Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, “Where have I gone wrong?” Then a voice says to me, “This is going to take more than one night.”‘

~Charlie Brown~ Peanuts[Charles Schulz]

I guess for me, this isn’t the question I’d ask the powers that be. I think it’s really cute that Charlie Brown asks it though, because how old is he? How far wrong could he have gone already? I’ve gone wrong at times in my life, no doubt! If I could change a few things, I would in a heartbeat, but would I be a different person or in a different place with a different life? I don’t know, I think everything that a person goes through is meant to get you to where you are at that moment. Like the guy in jail for robbing a liquour store can ask, ‘where did I go wrong’ but I think that answer is pretty obvious! I’m a believer that life will take me to where I’m meant to be, some decisions may be the wrong ones in regards to it being a positive or a negative experience, but it’s all meant to be like that. Looking back it’s really quite amazing to see the course of life and see all the dots that got connected to end up where I am. It’s just my thoughts…..you may feel the question, ‘where did I go wrong’ fitting and want an answer, but I just look at life and think it was all meant to be!

LEGAL INSANITY has a new release out for the Tres Chic event and the ‘Lily Tops’ are super cute and perfect for the coming spring and summer. They come in 10 colours, with 2 metal options, and each top has two styles, closed or open. Tres Chic runs until April 10.

The ‘Faith Hope Love’ tattoo is from Carol G Tattoo Wear. Another one of my faves that sends a peaceful and loving message. You can also find it on Market Place.

The ‘Carrie Denim Shorts’ in brown are from /erratic/. Note the cute little scarf tied to the belt loop, which is optional.

The ‘G1224’ hair is from tram.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is pose 67 from .MILA..

I’m at the new to me sim, Isle of May! And I’m happy to say it’s a gorgeous replacement for hazardous, since it’s closing. I feel like I can relax and breathe here. Oh, and there’s all kinds of familiar names here, working hard on their own shots!

Second Life Problems

Oh is my face red!! Of all the things that can go wrong in Second Life, typing a message in the wrong box is one of the worst, in my opinion! I’ve received random messages from people that make no sense at all, and some of them have been of a sexual nature, but luckily my faux pas isn’t that bad! It was bad enough though! A couple days ago I was accused of ‘blowing smoke up someone’s a**’! It was said in local chat and in front of lots of people and I got a good chuckle out of it! So fast forward a day, and last night I remember what was said and want to dispute my motives! Well, here’s where it all goes sideways! There are only two people on my friends list in-world and of the two, I happen to start an IM conversation with the wrong one! And I say, “You know I really wasn’t trying to blow smoke up your a**!’. It makes perfect sense to me, but for anyone not privy to what brought that comment on, it sounds kind of strange, if not a little kinky! After I hit ‘send’ I see my mistake and I’m sure my eyes got big and I blushed……then hurriedly told the person that it was meant for someone else and to please just ignore that comment and carry on with your day! Not to be daunted, I then retyped the message and sent it to the right person, because the epic failure of sending it to the wrong person wasn’t going to stop me! It all turned out OK, the only thing hurt was my ego, but I carry on and have learned a good lesson. Will it happen again? Yea, probably, but that’s ok…….luckily I can laugh at myself as easily as I laugh at others!

I’m so sorry for featuring a rear view of myself , yet again! Please..just know that I do it solely for my designers and take no joy in it! 😀 LEGAL INSANITY has released a new outfit and it was begging to be shown from the back. The ‘Karina Leggings & Top’ are a cute little ensemble that are a little on the snug side, but I’m sure no one’s complaining! They’re both exclusive for the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya and both HUD driven. The top comes in 6 colours with the stings and top colour change independently and the leggings come in the same six colours, with the fatpack including 4 exclusive denim colours! They’re available at the March round of Collabor88, which runs until April 6.

The ‘G1020’ hair from tram has turned into one of my all time faves.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is the #83 pose from MILA.

I came across this abandoned swimming pool at Tralala’s Diner! I continue to find wonderful little treasures on the sim!
