Ship Of Fools

Ship of Fools

On waves of love my heart is breaking
And stranger still my self control I can’t rely on anymore
New tides surprise – my world it’s changing
Within this frame an ocean swells – behind this smile I know it well

Beneath a lover’s moon I’m waiting
I am the pilot of the storm – adrift in pleasure I may drown
I built this ship – it is my making
And furthermore my self control I can’t rely on anymore
I know why – I know why
Crazy on a ship of fools
Crazy on a ship of fools
Turn this boat around – back to my loving ground

Who claims that no man is an island
While I land up in jeopardy – more distant from you by degrees
I walk this shore in isolation
And at my feet eternity draws ever sweeter plans for me
I know why – I know why
Crazy on a ship of fools
Crazy on a ship of fools
Turn this boat around – back to my loving ground
Oh no, oh no – ship of fools —

Ship Of Fools‘ ~Robert Plant~

I don’t have much to say today, I’m sorry to say. I suppose I could make up a story about why I’m laying on a piano with a skull, but I don’t have it in me today! I suppose I could give you a weather report, but I ask myself, ‘does anyone even give a f***?’! I could say that I saw Robert Plant way back in the day for his ‘Now and Zen’ tour, but again I’d ask that same question. And honestly, I don’t think anyone does….heck……I know I don’t! 😀

The October round of the Pose Fair is open for the entire month and Le Poppycock has the ‘Necromantic’ gacha set exclusive for it. The set contains 14 bento poses, with props including skulls, skeletons, butterflies, and violins. Perfect for October spookiness. I’m using the ‘Possession’ pose with skull and butterfly prop, I have to admit there’s something weird about laying naked on a piano with a skull, but I’ve never been one to shy away from weird! 😀 There’s also a group gift available for Pose Fair group members and like I said, the Pose Fair runs until October 31.

The enchanting ‘H0928’ hair is from tram and available now at Collabor88. There’s 2 versions included, and as always, I got HUD A.

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

I’m laying on the ‘Distressed Grand Piano, dark’ from Nutmeg. And the ‘Sepia Peonies’ are from NOMAD.

Sweet Thing

Sweet Thing

I will stroll the merry way and jump the hedges first
I will drink clear clean water for to quench my thirst
I’ll go watch the ferry-boats and I’ll get high
On the bluer ocean against the waters sky
I will walk and talk in gardens all wet with rain
I will never ever ever grow so old again

Oooh good God you’re a sweet thing
Oooh good God you’re a sweet thing

I shall drive my chariot down – your streets and cry
Hey it’s me tonight I’m dynamite and I don’t know why
You shall take me strongly in your arms again
And I still wonder if I ever felt the pain
We shall walk and talk in gardens all misty wet with rain
And I shall never, ever, ever grow so cold again

Oooh good God you’re a sweet thing
Oooh good God you’re a sweet thing

I shall raise my hand up into the night, to the night sky
And count the stars that are shining in your eye
Just to dig it all and not to wonder that would be fine
You said its fine not to read in between the lines

Oooh good God you’re a sweet thing
Oooh good God you’re a sweet thing
Oooh my my my my my sweet thing
Oooh good God.

Sweet Thing‘ ~Hozier~ (Van Morrison cover)

My crush on Eddie Vedder is well documented here on the blog, and I’m hoping it’s perfectly normal to have a crush on someone famous? Even at my age? Please tell me that crushes aren’t limited to the young, because it they are, well that just sucks! If I find out that I’m an anomaly and I’m alone in this, it could be a little awkward, but I’m pretty confident that anyone can have a crush, and it can be on anyone. I mean, I think it’s kind of cute when someone says they have a crush on someone else, and if it happens to be you it’s a huge compliment, I think. Unless of course the person tells you they have a crush on you by painting it on your garage door, or chases you down the street while you’re walking, then it’s just creepy! Why I mention Eddie Vedder and a crush is that EV is safe in the number one spot on my list of crushes, but he’s seriously being challenged by Hozier! I love this guy, he’s a great songwriter, plays the guitar, and his hair……now this guy can rock a man-bun! 😀 There has to be way more than that to be crush worthy for me, it’s not about any one thing. It’s the overall package and Hozier has it! I’m hoping someone will tell me who their crush is, it’ll make me feel a little better about this issue and not so alone!! 😛

This picture is all about the pose, and of course, the kitty! I like cats, if anyone asks if I’m a cat or a dog person I have to say both. They both have pros and cons, they’re just different. Shadow’s Poses has a new release called ‘Cat Power‘. It’s a bento pose and the pack includes the cat, but I’m sure you could put a pup in there instead if you’re more of a dog person! Either way you’ll look super sexy spending time with your companion.

I made a quick visit to The Arcade this morning and I scored the ‘Kallista Bodysuit, RARE’ from {le fille casse}. There isn’t a huge amount of fabric involved in it, but it’s super sexy!

The ‘H0527’ hair is from tram.

I’ve added the ‘Trinket Necklace, short’ from Cae here.

I’m wearing the ‘Enigma’ tattoo from Queen oF Ink, I feel naked if I don’t have it on, now.

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.

Thank You

Thank You

My tea’s gone cold, I’m wondering why I got out of bed at all
the morning rain clouds up my window and I can’t see at all
And even if I could it’d all be grey, but your picture on my wall
it reminds me that it’s not so bad
it’s not so bad

I drank too much last night, got bills to pay
my head just feels in pain
I missed the bus and there’ll be hell today
I’m late for work again
and even if I’m there, they’ll all imply that I might not last the
day
and then you call me and it’s not so bad
it’s not so bad and

I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life

Push the door, I’m home at last and I’m soaking through and
through
then you handed me a towel and all I see is you
and even if my house falls down now, I wouldn’t have a clue
because you’re near me and

I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life
Oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life

Thank You‘ ~Dido~

Just a song for you today, it’s been another hot day, and it’s a Friday night, so you know what that means……..yea…..neither do I. It’s just another evening, the same as the rest. 🙂

Shadow’s Poses has a new release out on Market Place and Lou’s created a nice simple and easy to use pose with a guitar prop for your photographic needs. It’s casual and relaxed, which I know doesn’t show well here, since I decided on using the close up shot of me. But everyone needs to see Liz in a close up now and then. 🙂 It’s for bento hands and the pack comes with the pose, pose ball, and guitar prop.

The ‘H0210’ hair is from tram. It’s a cute little pixie cut and flatters most face shapes perfectly.

I started out wearing a nice casual outfit, then I decided I’d go for something a little sexier, trying to emulate Lou’s sexiness……but then I took off my clothes and said, ‘to h*ll with clothes….the guitar covers me enough’. I am wearing a tattoo though, the ‘Enigma’ tattoo from Queen oF Ink is one I rarely go without.

Oh….and skin….I have my skin on. 😀 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. I’ve added one of the options from the ‘Satin Eyeshadow’ set from Buzzeri.

Wild Love

Wild Love

Don’t know what to say to you now
Standing right in front of you
Don’t know how to fade in and out
Don’t know how to play it cool
Lose a little guard, let it down
We don’t have to think it through
We’ve got to let go

I wanna give you wild love
The kind that never slows down
I wanna take you high up
Let our hearts be the only sound
I wanna go where the lights burn low and you’re only mine
I wanna give you wild love

Tried to call you to feel you close
From a runway in Tokyo
Let’s leave the atmosphere, disappear
There’s always something left to lose

But I wanna give you wild love
The kind that never slows down
I wanna take you high up
Let our hearts be the only sound
I wanna go where the lights burn low and you’re only mine
I wanna give you wild love
I wanna give you wild love

(Love, love, love)
(Love, love, love)
I wanna give you wild love
(Love, love, love)
I wanna give you wild love
(Love, love, love)

Let’s be reckless, unaffected
Running out until we’re breathless
Let’s be hopeful, don’t get broken
Let’s stay caught up in the moment

I wanna give you wild love
The kind that never slows down
I wanna take you high up
Let our hearts be the only sound
I wanna go where the lights burn low and you’re only mine
I wanna give you wild love
I wanna say I wanna give you wild love
Give you wild love
Wild love

Wild Love‘ ~James Bay~

Another morning, and up early as usual, it’s been hot here lately so I keep my windows open for the night cooling the place off, and it’s so nice sleeping with a light breeze(hopefully) blowing in. The biggest downfall is that I have a flock of chickens that includes 2 roosters, and you know what? They’re noisy……very noisy, once 4 AM rolls around they’re sure everyone should be out of bed. It works well….if I wanted to get up at 4…but most days I don’t. There are days I do get up, getting a head start on a blog post or something productive(?). It really is the best time of the day and an early summer morning in the prairies is wonderful. It’s early in the haying season so the air carries the wonderful smell of freshly cut alfalfa, the meadowlarks are singing in the hay fields to the south, the dew is glistening in rays of the rising sun, and the roosters…….oh those roosters….just never shut up! 😀

I’m enjoying an early morning outside the motel at Mother Road here. I have my steaming mug of coffee, thanks to the ‘Coffee Break’ set of poses with coffee mug props from [KoKoLoReS] and available at the July round of The Pose Fair. The mug is HUD driven with 6 textures and it’s also resizable via the HUD. The poses are bento and fit me really well. Have a great day all!

The ‘H0531’ hair is from tram. You might guess that tram is one of my all time favourite hair makers…….it’s like they’re all made just for me! 😛

The ‘Sabrina Top’ is from /erratic/, one of my favourite summer tops.

You can just see the top of the ‘Lila Jeans’ from Blueberry. Love the fit of these!

The ‘Infinity Necklace’ is from Cae and the hearts are HUD driven for engraving.

As usual, 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.

Love Shack‘ ~B-52’s~

So why is this post titled something not relating to the song or the picture? Well, I’ll tell you…….the picture is sad…..but I’m not sad! So I thought I’d try to negate the sadness of the photo with a song that’s happy and makes you want to sing along. And maybe even find a Love Shack somewhere! I’m pretty sure I found one in the middle of nowhere in North Carolina once! It was a little Mom and Pop place with really bad tequila that I insisted on drinking way too much of it. Needless to say I got drunk and felt terrible the next day but I’m not going to say any more about that. That’s not why I’m here…..I’m here to talk about something much more fun and so much easier on the body! Yea….you know what it is…..I’m here to talk about my Second Life and what I do for fun! Well, I’ll leave that for another day and maybe just get on with the deets!

First of all, the pose! Lou of Shadow’s Poses has been busy creating a new release and here it is. It’s ‘Devil Inside’ which includes the pose, a pose ball, and the teddy bear prop. Ok, while I was looking at the picture that Lou included in the package, I was first struck by her use of the pose. She has a look and presence that exudes sexiness that I can’t even come close to matching, so I thought long and hard about how I can incorporate this into my personal style. You know me, my go-to emotion is pretty much always sad so what does a girl do when hugging a teddy bear? I think the last time I hugged one I was crying, so I figured this would be a good time for some soul wrenching sobbing to take place. I’ve had the tears from Catwa since forever and thought I’d give them a try, just to make it a little more difficult on an already difficult day for me in SL with it’s glitchiness. The tears are showing a bit, but I’m far from being able to use them effectively. This just looks like I over did it on the eye drops when I came down with a bad case of ‘dry eye’! Anyway, I digress…..so I took Lou’s super sultry pose and made it sad, I think if there’s a woman on earth who could make crying sexy, it would be Lou!

The ‘G0718’ hair is from tram.

I’m wearing the ‘Acadia Dress’ in burgundy’ from Tres Blah here.

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

I’m in the lovely little atelier, which is at the top of the stairs and to the right in the house at Isle of May!
