Ooohh Ooooh Oooh Oooh

Ooohh Ooooh Oooh Oooh

Do you hear me, I’m talking to you
Across the water across the deep blue ocean
Under the open sky, oh my, baby I’m trying
Boy, I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

Lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

They don’t know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I’ll wait for you, I promise you, I will

Lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Lucky we’re in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

And so I’m sailing through the sea
To an island where we’ll meet
You’ll hear the music fill the air
I’ll put a flower in your hair
Though the breezes through the trees
Move so pretty you’re all I see
As the world keeps spinning round
You hold me right here right now

Lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
I’m lucky we’re in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Lucky‘ ~Jason Mraz (feat. Colbie Caillat)

I bet you’re wondering what the heck’s with the title for this post. Since finding the right title for a new post is one of the hardest things to do, I started using the name or a phrase from the song I’m featuring. Well, the name of the song is ‘Lucky’ which didn’t thrill be and while scanning the lyrics of it nothing really jumped out at me. So, instead of trying to say something profound, I opted for the more generic ‘ooohh’ part of the lyrics. I wish it had had some ‘mmmm’s’ or some ‘uh huh’s’, but the ‘ooooh’ will have to do. You know people have written blog posts about naming blog posts, giving all kinds of hints on making it say what you want. In the beginning of my blogging I’d spend more time thinking of a title for it than it would take me to write the whole thing, slurls and all. I do try to make it mean something, but there’s no promises, as you can see by the title of this one! Ooohh oooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, etc etc!

I know the month has has been speeding by and I’m just now telling you about the ‘Hester Top’ from *Just BECAUSE*, but I’m hoping the saying ‘better late than never’ holds true in this instance. This top is available until June 6 at Collabor88 and with the hot weather upon us, at least in my part of the world, a cool top is needed. It comes in tons of colours with the fatpack including 26 colours plus 4 bonus prints, the ruffle has an on/off toggle and it’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique) and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies.

The super versatile ‘Lila Jeans’ are from Blueberry. The fatpack includes tons of colours for the denim and metals, plus both ‘cutie’ and ‘Blueberry’ bootie options.

The ‘Lakia’ hair is from +elua+, this is from the ‘cafe’ pack of colours.

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. I wanted to look kind of happily dreamy for this one, so I’m putting my animations HUD from Catwa to good use.

I got into Shiny Shabby on the first day and the ‘Old Tricycle’ in green, from Nutmeg, caught my eye. It has male and female poses made by RK Poses, but of course I have to be different and use a pose from the ‘Single Poses set 16’ from The Owl.

I’m at the always lovely Neverfar sim for this picture. I’m a group member to make rezzing possible.

Don’t You Wanna Stay

Don't You Wanna Stay

I really hate to let this moment go
Touching your skin, and your hair falling slow
When a goodbye kiss, feels like this

Don’t you wanna stay here a little while?
Don’t you wanna hold each other tight?
Don’t you wanna fall asleep with me tonight?

Don’t you wanna stay here a little while?
We can make forever feel this way
Don’t you wanna stay?

Let’s take it slow, I don’t wanna move too fast
I don’t wanna just make love, I wanna make love last
When you’re up this high, it’s a sad goodbye

Don’t you wanna stay here a little while?
Don’t you wanna hold each other tight?
Don’t you wanna fall asleep with me tonight?
Don’t you wanna stay here a little while?
We can make forever feel this way
Don’t you wanna stay?

Oh yeeah

Oh, you feel so perfect, baby
Yeah, you feel so perfect, baby

Don’t you wanna stay here a little while?

Don’t you wanna stay here a little while?
Don’t you wanna hold each other tight?
Don’t you wanna fall asleep with me tonight?
Don’t you wanna stay here a little while?
We can make forever feel this way
Don’t you wanna stay?

Don’t You Wanna Stay‘ ~Jason Aldean feat. Kelly Clarkson~

In Restless Dreams I Walked Alone

In Restless Dreams I Walked Alone

Hello, darkness, my old friend.
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping.

And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone.
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp.
I turned my collar to the cold and damp

When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence.

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking.
People hearing without listening.

People writing songs that voices never share.
And no one dare
Disturb the sound of silence.

“Fools,” said I, “You do not know:
Silence, like a cancer, grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you.
Take my arms that I might reach you,”

But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence.

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming.

And the sign said,
“The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls.
And whispered in the sound of silence.”

Sound of Silence‘ ~Disturbed~

I’m sure everyone knows this song, Paul Simon wrote it and him and Garfunkel made it famous, but this isn’t your Grandmother’s version! It’s got a bit of meat to it, the video is haunting and his voice is almost angry. I love it when a well known song is changed so completely….when it’s in a good way, like this one is! 🙂

I hope you’ll understand if I’m a little short on words today! I’ve been gone all day and had way to much exposure to people, for this introvert! I need quiet and alone time, and maybe some chocolate! Everything is better with chocolate. Anyway, I’ll get on with why I’m here. A new round of Cosmopolitan Events is open and Carol G Tattoo has the ‘Buddha Tattoo’ for the women available! The detailing in this is so good, with the intricate circles, the flowers and on the back the likeness of the Buddha! It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies, including anything Omega driven and the Catwa, Lelutka, and Vista bento heads, it comes in red or black and each with 4 ink tones. This is one spectacular tat! Cosmopolitan runs until May 5.

The ‘Daisy Top’ from *Just BECAUSE* is one of my favourite summertime tops! It’s super sexy with the zipper open a little bit to show off some cleavage. It’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique), and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies and comes in tons of colours. Or…maybe just go for the fatpack for all kinds of options.

The ‘G1204’ hair is from tram.

You can just see a little bit of the ‘DWL Jeans’ from Blueberry.

The skin is ‘Maddie’ in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery. I’ve added one of the 9 options from the ‘Blossom Smoke Shadow’ set of eye shadows from Veechi.

I’m using a pose from the ‘Milan’ set by Ana Poses, which is available now at Shiny Shabby.

I’m in the atelier in the house at Isle of May here.

As I Come Clean…

As I Come Clean...

Yes, I understand that every life must end, uh-huh
As we sit alone, I know someday we must go, uh-huh
Oh I’m a lucky man, to count on both hands the ones I love
Some folks just have one, yeah, others, they’ve got none

Stay with me…
Let’s just breathe…

Practiced are my sins, never gonna let me win, uh-huh
Under everything, just another human being, uh-huh
I don’t wanna hurt, there’s so much in this world to make me bleed

Stay with me
You’re all I see…

Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn’t I’m a fool you see
No one knows this more than me

As I come clean…
I wonder everyday, as I look upon your face, uh-huh
Everything you gave
And nothing you would take, oh no

Nothing you would take
Everything you gave…

Did I say that I need you?
Oh, did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn’t I’m a fool you see
No one knows this more than me
And I come clean, ah…

Nothing you would take
Everything you gave
Hold me ’til I die
Meet you on the other side…

Just Breathe‘ ~Eddie Vedder~

Everyday could be an Eddie Vedder day, for me, but I try to find new songs and artists that I haven’t heard to expand my musical horizon. This is one of my favourites of EV’s and I may have shared it already, but I don’t care…..it’s worth a repeat.

So, personally I’ve had a difficult week with being over emotional and somewhat down….well….not somewhat…….just down. With all the bad news on TV I’ve pretty much stopped watching it, I limit the amount of news I read and hear to just once a day, that way I don’t get caught up in the anxiety and negativity of it all. Then, the news of a crash on a highway in my part of Canada hits, and I’m struck with how precious life is. I think this accident has been covered nationally, it’s severity completely shocking. My heart goes out to all of the people affected by this. In so many small towns in Canada the hockey team is something that everyone supports and follows, and the Humboldt Broncos have been national champions in the past, and hopefully will be again. It’s events like this that everyone should look at their life and cherish everyone and everything in it. You can never say ‘I love you’ too much, or appreciate this world we live in enough. This life we live is fleeting, and with the finite amount of time each of us has, it’s much too short to not live….really live!!

So, the picture today is just something I took yesterday while pondering life. I tend to be drawn to sad poses but I wanted something a little lighter and the ‘Katyusha Elegant Armchair’ from RK Poses is perfect. This is the female half of the couples pose in this chair and it’s thoughtful without being sad, I think. I’m just resting…..calming my mind and letting my worries go. The chair is available now at Shiny Shabby until April 15.

The KOMA hair is from Argrace.

$*%@(&%!^ Typos

$*%@(&%!^ Typos

I am such a bad typist!! Oh, I know everyone has moments, but I seem to just automatically make the same typos over and over again. I’m not sure if anyone who chats with me in-world notices, but I get so frustrated when I see I’ve made the word ‘doing’ into ‘diong’ yet again! My fingers just won’t put the letters in the right order, for some reason! If there’s a wrong way to spell a word, I’ve done it, I just hope that whoever I’m chatting with speaks fluent ‘typonese’ and can decipher what I’m saying. The one good thing about typos is that when I spell a word wrong, that person is then assuming it’s a typo when in reality I just have no idea how to spell it. And with my lack of knowledge in current acronyms, I never know if the letters in someones message to me mean something or it’s a typo! It’s embarrassing really, but since I can acknowledge my own foibles, I don’t mind telling you all. I’m trusting everyone can completely relate to this. And really, if you tell me you can’t…..then I know you’re not being honest about your own typing skills, or lack thereof! I can usually understand what someone is saying without anything being spelled right. Unless it’s a complete mess, then I’ll have to ask for a repeat, and hope I get it then. My mistakes aren’t limited to chat in Second Life either, I’ve now written 249 characters here and I’ve had to make corrections to it 18 times! The scary part about bad spelling is that I seem to care less and then put less effort into correcting it. I used to reread my message and correct the problems, not anymore…..I hit send as soon as I’m done and hope for the best. There are times it can be embarrassing….like getting the ‘c’ and the ‘x’ mixed up. I told a friend the other day, ‘give me a sex’, meaning to just wait a second! Yea…there was much laughter. 🙂

I can’t believe how fast the month of March has passed. I logged in yesterday and realized it was the 25th and ~uber~ was open! So, off I go to find the Just BECAUSE booth to gift the newest release to my lovely sister! Since I am one of then luckiest girls in the world and blog for *JB*, I logged into Blogotex and snatched that baby right up! The ‘Daisy Top’ is so cute with delicate lace on each side, a finely detailed zipper, and a little bit of cheekiness with one side starting to slip! It’s fitted for the SLink, Belleza(Isis & Freya), and Maitreya mesh bodies and is HUD driven with the shirt, ruffle, zipper, and lace all being colour change. The fatpack contains 18 colours for the top and ruffle and 26 for the lace, there’s also 6 metal options. ~uber~ runs until April 23.

Thanks to Ana Poses, I have a new look for sipping my beverage of the Gods! The ‘Santiago’ pose set, available now at Shiny Shabby, includes 5 bento poses and coffee travel cup props.

The hair is ‘Bones’ one of my favourites from [KoKoLoReS]. It’s a colour from the ‘naturals’ pack.

As I often do, I’m wearing the ‘Just Love’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Wear. Simple yet powerful!

The ‘Infinity Necklace’ is from Cae-Original Mesh Jewelry.

As usual, 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.

I’m at Isle of May for this shot! It’s my new favourite place to be.
