I, like nearly 10% of the US population,
Although, I try to deny it and will occasionally
laugh about it, Diabetes is no joking matter.
It has left me vision impaired and more which
is why it was a no-brainer for me to join
Team Diabetes of Second Life in their
3rd Annual Scare Me Silly Event.
Team Diabetes of Second Life is an official and authorized team of The American Diabetes Association. The mission of Team Diabetes of Second Life is to raise awareness, tolerance, and funds for diabetes in the virtual world of Second Life. According to the World Health Organization (2016): 422 million adults in the world have diabetes and 1.5 million deaths are directly attributed to diabetes each year.
I don’t wanna die.
That is why I’m taking this event to heart.
As a message.
It’s time I stop my lax approach to this disease, pull up my big girl panties,
take the prescribed medications and better my health.
But, that will only be the beginning.
Scare Me Silly is an all inclusive event.
Running until October 27th, it features two Hunts, Live Performers,
DJ’s and an Art Show.
Designers have come out in hoards making shopping a treat.
Roped Passions is one of those designers.
With 100% of it’s sales going toward the event, I give you
Halloween All A Glow.
Designed to make any Halloween a scary pleasure,
Roped Passions’ Halloween All A Glow is available in two colors: Orange and Purple.
Compatible with Maitreya, Belleza and Slink Mesh Bodies,
these silky Silks cling to your curves giving way to a much sexier you.
I wonder if consuming pumpkin would be good for me.
The American Diabetes Association states,
“They are high in iron and unsaturated fats.
These unsaturated fats may help to lower cholesterol levels
when they replace saturated fats and trans-fat in the diet.”
Is that so?
Heeere, punkin’, punkin’….

Every time I hear anything about something tasting like chicken,
my mind immediately goes back to Mike Tyson and the meme created
after he bit Evander Holyfield’s ear back in 2012.
They involve more than just the recollection of the mind.
You can smell Memories.
Feel them and yes
even taste them.
As we age, incidents from the past begin to resurface.
Sometimes for me, the negative ones try to take lead,
but I won’t allow it.
Why brood over something that happened 35 years ago?
Instead, I have been focusing more on the simple.
For example, the hot summers I’d spent at a relative’s house
somewhere in the desert of California.
The name of the town escapes me, but it’s sizzling heat does not (Feel).
It’s a place that has the worst tasting water I have ever ingested in my life! (Taste)
And nothing visually captivating to look at, either.(See)
But, it was the nights…
Aaaah…the nights I remember the most.
When it was time for bed and I lay in front of their swamp cooler
all nice and comfy, the days discomfort passed away as I reach out
to their cold metal Goddess (Touch).
I have such memories in Second Life, too.
How someone wonderful took me under her wing.
Shaped me into the being that I am.
Stood by me.
Accepted my mistakes
and loved me for who I am.
is Wicca Merlin.
I would do anything for Wicca.
Bend over backwards, forwards and beg on my knees.
That’s saying a lot from a woman
as strong-willed as I.
She is my Second Life and if anything were
to happen to her, I’m not sure I could carry on.
This is why when negative memories of SL resurface,
I squash them by creating new ones with Wicca in mind and
her Bloodshed Gloves give me plenty opportunities to do so.
Currently at the Ironwood Hills Event,
Wicca’s Wardrobe‘s Bloodshed Bento Enabled Gloves come in two versions.
Bloody and Clean (I’m wearing Clean).
Both have a six color HUD to customize the Arm, Glove and Plate parts separately.
The option for five Metals to change the Fingers, Claws, Spikes, Wire and Metal Plates individually are also a click away.
They are simply magnificent and receives the High FURshion Stamp of Approval!
As for me, I’m conjuring up something tasty.
It’s going to be otherworldly, deep-fried and crispy.
Will it be memorable?
We shall see…..
