Heated

StonesWorksWizardhat2

Fire.
My favorite element.
I’m a Geek and if there is a Spellcaster in the game I’m playing,
I will choose Fire as my element time and time again.
It’s powerful — leaving only traces of it’s target.
It’s final.
Permanent.
There is no going back.
An article written by the Smithsonian last year states that
84% of all Wildfires are started by us.
Humans.
Not machinery or something faulty.
Us.
My son can attest to this fact when he passed by a public
ashtray a few weeks ago and witnessed a fire starting
due to someone not putting out their cigarette.
Thank goodness he was there.
I would have been devastated to know my favorite Korean Market
had gone up in flames.
There are fires, however, that put the positive in motion.
Besides, being essential for cooking, heat and all it’s other obvious uses,
fire mesmerizes and magnetizes.
Stone’s WorksWizard Flame Hat has the same affect.

StonesWorksWizardhat1

I don’t want to set the world on fire.
I just want to start a flame in your heart.
In my heart I have but one desire.
And that one is you, no other will do.

The beginning lyrics to one of my favorite classic tunes.

I Don’t Want to Set the World on Fire by The Ink Spots
reminds me of Stone’s tribute to Spellcasters since
this hat doesn’t find it necessary to be grandiose in size
nor shout with loud colors or patterns.
We Spellcasters never want our opponent to see us coming.
Subtlety is necessary as we charge up a fireball to take them out.
Raisin colored, wrapped in a silky band and finished off with
a buckled flickering flame, the Wizard Flame Hat gives the
jump on the opposition.

So, pass the word.
In fact, let me tell one more person.
Yo! Harry…..

Scared Silly

scaremesilly2018

Diabetes.
I, like nearly 10% of the US population,
have it.
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.
Not yet.
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.

ScareMeSillyRopedPassions

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.

Hmmmm…
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’….

Mourn

DazzleD&WKneel

It’s fascinating.
At least for me.
The “it” being how occasionally the images I create reflect
my state of being unintentionally.
It started several years back when I dreamt I was being
coddled by thorny vines.
The dream was so strong that I tried to recreate it in a Second Life image.
I did well.
Perhaps, I’ll show it to you one day.
With that said, what does the image above say to you?
Yes.
Me, too.
But, again, it wasn’t intentional.
I had resigned myself to the possibility of having to end
a very important SL relationship.
So, here I am…
kneeling before a headstone and mourning a possible
death while wearing Dark & White Store‘s Vampire Outfit.

DazzleD&WMorn

Vampire is a Maitreya Dress complete with Unrigged Scarf
and Hat — both with resizer scripts.
Just in time for the chilly nights ahead, this dark, yet eloquent combo
is at this October’s DAZZLE Event.
Hip hugging with a squared neckline, this ensemble will surely
entice the dead from their graves.

As far as my very important SL relationship?
Well, let’s just say I may be needing a brighter bouquet some day soon….

Stampede

RYRDFSUsTrampled to death.
Sometimes, that is the best way to describe how I feel.
And this is one of those times.
I’m on an emotional roller coaster, Ya’ll.
Up, down, left, right and under the damn-ass dirt.
Gawd, don’t let the tears start because when they do,
it’s a total stampede….

In this state, I try not to burn bridges.
The relationships I have with others are special and unique.
But, if you bombard me, I can’t think.
I can’t create!
I can’t love.
I’m gonna lace up my Converse and seriously think about
running away with the herd.
I need space.

Keep Calm, ya say?
Pfft.
First, I gotta get calm.
They say having pets can bring such peace.
Well, guess what?
I’m surrounded….

RYRDFSThem

It’s rare for a Blogger (this one, anyway) to be asked to write about
something so unique and fun, that you adopt it into your everyday life.
Clothes, Hair, Makeup, Jewelry, Shoes — I have tons
(most I purchased myself).
I even have animals like KittyCats, but nothing like this

How do I explain Second Life’s Digital Farm System?
Well, let me begin by taking it from the source:

“Digital Farm System (DFS) is an amazing new farming simulation system on Second Life (SL), which allows player experience the depths of farming life by planning their farming goals, breeding different types of farm animals, and grow their own crops, plants and trees.”

DFS is amazing.
Straight up.
It’s so involved that I can barely wrap my head around it.
Not only do you raise farm animals like Cows, Bulls and Pigs.
But, also tend to crops, butcher (unless you’re vegetarian)
and cook what you’ve grown.

There is a huge trading system in place and although I am new to it all,
I plan to become more involved.
Here is your opportunity to join me.
DFS is presenting an Exclusive for Rock Your Rack.
The RYR Cow, pretty in pink and branded with a
Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon on her hinney is the perfect way
to begin your farming journey.
Along with their Halloween 2018 Bull, Hay and Water,
You’ll be bouncing baby calves off your knees in no time.
Honestly, I can’t wait and neither can you…
Ya see, TODAY is the LAST day for you to snatch up
Your own RYR Cow since TODAY is the FINAL day for Rock Your Rack.

One High FURshion entry simply isn’t enough.
So, I will be posting more as time goes along.
In the meantime,
moooove over….

It Is Time

DazzleGrafittiBlood
Halloween.
Samhain.
Dia de los Muertos.

However you celebrate your last day of October
is puurfectly alright with me.
You, see…
I love the things that supposedly go bump in the night
because I’m one of them.
Good, clean, honest and down to earth startling of an unsuspecting
individual gets my blood to pumping.
When I create a Haunted House in either of lives I take on the following emotions:

Henry: Look! It’s moving. It’s sha — it’s… it’s alive. It’s alive… It’s alive, it’s moving, it’s alive! It’s alive, it’s alive, it’s alive! It’s ALIVE!
Victor: Henry — in the name of God!
Henry: Oh, in the name of God! Now I know what it feels like to BE God!

DazzleGrafittiScared

This time of year just does it for me.
If I were blind, deaf and mute,
I’d still know the witching season would be upon us.
It smells.
It’s all around us in the air.
Breathing in makes me want to don the season’s colors,
wear masks and slowly creep up behind the unsuspecting
releasing one single loud and boisterous word…
GRAFFITIWEAR!

Pay Attention

RYRDEBoutiqueAlaskametroPipe

It’s hard.
Not multi-tasking and giving one single item,
task or idea your undivided attention.
Tis the way of the world.
There’s no time for idle time and being in the moment is all in the past.
Well….
