When I Grow Up

When I was younger, I could remember anything, whether it had happened or not; but my faculties are decaying now and soon I shall be so I cannot remember any but the things that never happened. It is sad to go to pieces like this but we all have to do it. — Mark Twain “So please get your rags
And your polishing jars,
Somebody has to go polish the stars.” – Shel Silverstein ~ A Light in the Attic At this point I am about to leave work early, the weather is supposed to take a chill and get stormy which is no fun for the weekend of a Florida girl. But out I go, polish and rags in hand, out I go. Ear Worm

I Think I Might Have a Foot Fetish

The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art. ~Leonardo da Vinci I was day-dreaming and looking at Azoury on the MP. I’ve always loved Azoury and Mayhem and Aniki Seetan. Heck, as I recall it, “back in the day” I tried out to be the Face of the Brand. Fell short, but found two friends, so all is good. Look at these things, all so unique, all works of art really. I just can’t figure out how to pull them off the internet to get them on my feet…   Seriously, I need these. They scream CAOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! I’d so wear these on a camping trip, when the bears chase me I’m already up a tree. Well, I’m done day dreaming and have to get my arse back to work for a little bit. I am checking out early today. Thanks for wandering with me while I “Instagram” my shoo shopping trip. If you happen to wander on to a method of vaporizing any of these babies into the real, ring me up. I’d pay a pretty Linden for it.… Read the restAZOURY_-_VITA_Heels_(Red)

Every Other Freckle

The Wax Before the Wane

“We all take different paths in life, but no matter where we go, we take a little of each other everyhwere.” ~ Tim McGraw These two pics a day can be grueling on the best of times, add to it a soul that craves to be out of doors not within and there is the brewing of a perfect storm. The pictures lack creativity, the words float up to the ethers and disappear. I am wandering on in a few days, so keep a light on for me. It’s Wednesday, I hope your weekend does the smooth slide into a pleasurable weekend. Get over to FFL! With so many designers it’s bound to have the one gorgeous piece of perfection you’ve been waiting to wear so check it out!   Earwax:

  My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far I’ve finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake.

That Was Then

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others~ Audrey Hepburn I find it funny that we are always so quick to jump in front of a moving vehicle to save a small child who has wandered astray, but when we have the opportunity to help so many we turn our backs and act as if there is nothing we can do. I am going to have a fairly wordless blog this week, not from lack of anything to say, more to not clutter up the importance of Second Life’s Fashion for Life benefitting the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. The event runs from March 21 to the 29th, 2015. I hope by now you have had the opportunity to stop by and collect some of the items there. If not, what are you waiting for? Look der, I even included a taxi for you. Taxi! I hope you have a wonderful, low gravity sort of Monday! EarWorm:

Sometimes I Can’t Contain Myself

“Well,” said Pooh, “what I like best,” and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called.”   ~A.A.Milne I really hate myself when I do this. No actually, technically, I don’t “hate” myself, I just wonder at the spoilt nature in me that keeps me from taking my excitement and making something a growing moment borne to teach a certain little cow a thing or two about patience. It’s certainly a lesson that most adults have long since mastered, but me, when I can’t wait, I just…can’t…wait… I’ve fallen so much in love with the brand .Enfant Terrible. that I am more than half afraid the designer is going to take a restraining order out on me. I am not stalking her, much, I sware! I was so excited about her new item that comes out today at the Shiny Shabby event that when I logged in on my lunch hour I donned full alpha and pulled on that what-cha-ma-jiggy HUD.… Read the rest16255133243_c3ca74e56f_o


Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. ~Marcel Proust Happy Spring everyone! I love the Spring, the glimpses of new life everywhere, the grasses so devout they reach up to worship the sun, the birds adding a nice chorus to the mix. We’ve survived another winter, you and I and all of us too. I hope you have a moment to go outside this weekend and listen, just listen to the pleasure a new season brings. Happy, yep, that’s the word. Just Happy. Outfit:

The Change is Within

  If you’ve been waiting to do something kind for someone, now is your time! Jewelry: Moondance Boutique, Graceful Decorus  **RFL**   It is so close to the time, it begins March 21, 2015. So close and I am so excited because this event weighs so heavy on my heart due to my best friend/sister in law dying of leukemia. I look forward to RFL every year, this is my fifth year of volunteering in Second Life and I hope you will lend a hand and help too. The wonderful part of SL’s Relay for Life and Fashion for Life event is you don’t just donate; you receive a product for your donation, something you would possibly wish to buy anyway. All the designers have specified items that, when purchased, 100% of the Lindens are donated to the SL RFL event and 100% of the dollars goes to the American Cancer Society. One person can make a difference. As stated on the RFL website, “Nowhere is that more evident than with the story of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life, which began in Tacoma, Washington.… Read the restJewelry: Moondance Boutique  **RFL**

Éirinn go Brách

May your pockets be heavy-
Your heart be light
And may good luck pursue you
Each morning and night
McQuillan walked into a bar and ordered martini after martini, each time removing the olives and placing them in a jar. When the jar was filled with olives and all the drinks consumed, he started to leave. ‘S’cuse me,’ said a customer, who was puzzled over what McQuillan had done. ‘What was that all about?’ ‘Nothing,’ he replied, ‘my wife just sent me out for a jar of olives.’ EarWorm:

The Cao Paradox

“Things aren’t often what they appear to be at first blush. But embarrassment is.” ~Jarod Kintz I don’t know how I got here today, if I have to blame someone I am going to let it rest squarely on my long time reader’s, you all know who you are. One of the things I love about blogging is I can consistently leave something verbally “hanging out here” and will always receive my enlightenment in the form of a suggestion or comeuppance, but all those years ago not a single soul was prepared to enlighten me, to correct my egregious lack of knowledge. Well, it because of back there that we are currently here. As many of you know, my mama, for the longest time tried to gently correct me by assisting me with my hoosband dilemma, the gist being the lack thereof. Though, honestly I think she’d have allowed me to forgo the hoosband if I had just been more willing to supply her with a passel of little moo’s in which to play dress up and spoil.… Read the rest16646479909_2d74229e22_o

Friday’s Child

‘Friday’ is about hanging out with friends, having fun. I felt like it was my personality in that song. ~Rebecca Black Whatever my week was, it is officially over, I am taking off early and meeting some friends to watch a basketball game. Whew, I need this. Well looky there, it’s Friday, and I am in love. Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace;
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go;
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for its living;
But the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay. ~ Mother Goose Outfit One Hair: Tableau Vivant, Sherilyn (yes still haven’t taken it off) @Collabor88

It’s Where My Demons Hide

The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you’ve got it made. ~Groucho Marx In need of cheering up this space a little, it’s looking a little dreary, I decided to  roll out my top 10 favorite Groucho Marx quotes and then head over to the marina for an afternoon sail. I’ve actually never been on a boat in Second Life. I suppose Cao’s are probably not sea worthy, you know with four legs and all, but todays my day. I went to the marina once, to catch a float on a yacht, but as I recall there was a disagreement about shoos and sales (the buying not yachting kind) and then my besty dragon Draakje Dailey *cough* tripped and fell off the dock. She uninvited me immediately… Oh, almost forgot.. Here’s to you Groucho! Hard to believe if he were alive he’d be about 124 years old right now. Time flies.. 1 | Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read. 2 | Those are my principles, and if you don’t like them… well, I have others.… Read the rest16144938854_280258e67d_o

Hold Still

“Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Just more randomness and restlessness today. Life is marching on, especially my Second one and I log in on my lunch and just listen to the quiet disconnect of my world. It’s as if, if I could just sit still enough I would hear the pith, pith, pith, of electrons as they fizzle and fade dying so I can take up space adding my disarrayed clutter to our cyber universe. My real world experiences haven’t been much different. We are at that USA moment when we Spring ahead, somewhere misplacing an hour of our lives. Is it necessary to continue with the farce of Daylight Savings? We haven’t been an agrarian populace for ages. But I awake, wanting to stay asleep finding my company more enjoyable when I am alone snookered up under the covers. I need air, that’s what it is, air and sunshine.  I hope you find your sunshine and life filling oxygen today.… Read the rest16786025682_d25af68e2e_o


It is paradoxical, yet true, to say, that the more we know, the more ignorant we become in the absolute sense, for it is only through enlightenment that we become conscious of our limitations. Precisely one of the most gratifying results of intellectual evolution is the continuous opening up of new and greater prospects. ~ Nikola Tesla I’ve reached an apex and I can’t fathom if it’s of the hilly variety or the valley one. Either way I am left a little bit bereft of the center of things and sort of muddling through. I have all sorts to blog, so I suppose, blog I will do. I wanted to make sure you know the wonderful pose store, Di’s Opera, is currently having a massive pose sale with individual poses priced at 30L’s and pose sets (usually 10 poses) priced at the incredible price of 200L’s.

Love’s Sweet Addiction

Know this: I am addicted to you. I have tasted your mind and I can’t forget it’s flavor ~unknown Skirt/Top: Drift, LouLou/Vintage Bikini **New** . Jacket: Tchelo’s, Cardigan Waterfall @Inovare Fashion Art .   Why are breakups so dam agonizing? Have you ever noticed just about everything around you reminds you of your lover? The song on the radio, a certain food you loved to share, the whiff of a stranger’s cologne as they pass you by. It’s no wonder we burst into tears so frequently after a break up. When we withdraw from a loved one your brain doesn’t give up, the basal ganglia overflows with dopamine making you actually crave them. In fact, it’s not unlike giving up sugar or nicotine. You crave them not “like” you are in addict, you actually are an addict. So much so, that often we do crazy idiotic things in the name of love to get our next “fix” of this person who broke our heart. Common sense-wise, how can that be?… Read the rest16496667967_6fec18257a_b

Love’s Soft Glow

Love has no desire but to fulfill itself. To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving. ~Khalil Gibran I wrote this long post on getting over love, and the addiction of love, but in the end I collapsed into love. Perhaps I am the problem to which I speak of.  So instead of a heavy fair of thought, today I wish to make this Thursday a lighter concoction on which to build a steady steam toward the weekend. “Infatuation is when you think he’s as sexy as Robert Redford, as smart as Henry Kissinger, as noble as Ralph Nader, as funny as Woody Allen, and as athletic as Jimmy Conners. Love is when you realize that he’s as sexy as Woody Allen, as smart as Jimmy Connors, as funny as Ralph Nader, as athletic as Henry Kissinger and nothing like Robert Redford — but you’ll take him anyway.” ~Judith Viorst, Redbook, 1975 Outfit: Headpiece: =Zenith=, Chrysantheum
