Yet another reason to love Jay Z. :P to Perez.

Well, I've fallen into a blog RUT.

Not that I don't have anything to say..I always have a lot to say.


It's just that I'm at this point in my SLife..where I guess.....

How do I say this..

I'm kinda happy.

Lame, I know! I feel like I'm walking on ICE. LOL

:) But I'm kinda happy just..doing what I do now. Finding my way back to old places..and finding my way into new places.

I'm doing well.

My friends are doing well.

Connected is doing well.

I had a shitstorm of ideas today..and I'm excited to work on new things. Planning charity events for December and parties. Helping random folks just.....because I can.

So my blog suffers a little bit.

I know you all understand.

The last few months...well they were really super shitty for me. And getting back on my feet took time and a lot of re-evaluating.

These days I log Blissie in and kinda walk away. Snuggle up on the couch with Mr. RL's like having the best of both worlds in a way.

If you'd asked me a year ago where I would be today..I don't think I could have imagined any of this in a million years. we all are. Home again.

:) I like it.

I love my SL friends, and if anyone's short on some Blissie lovin', know that it's because I'm wrapped up in me these days. But I still love you. :)

I'll be home next weekend..(actually here when Blissie is logged in!) and I'll catch up on blogs and on everything. I promise.

:) A little early Thanksgiving appreciation. I *am* thankful for everything - the good and the bad. I am thankful for the people that have made me a better person..made me stronger, made me softer, made me whole. :) I love my little SL family and I wouldn't trade you fuckers for anything - not even custom made Moody's. *nods* That's some serious love, yo.

999 and Counting......

Well, kids. Today is my 999th day in Second Life.

Just stating that fact BLOWS me away.

999 days..of bullshitting around in a cartoon world.

999 days of shopping for cartoon stuff that I've worn once..and never used again. LOL

999 days of decorating and undecorating and redecorating.

999 days of making and breaking friendships.

Some people celebrate their 1,000th day. I kinda like my 999th day better. It's like being at the edge of a mountain just.....being.

Because that's kinda where I am right now. :) Happy just being.

I could sit here and dole out advice to noobs..or those younger than me in SL.

But here's the thing - it won't matter. I heard it all/saw it all. And I still made the same mistakes. I guess some lessons you have to learn for yourself.


My advice is simple.

:) Just enjoy your SL and the people you're with. Don't get caught up in the drama - don't read too much into things, and don't hold on to things that don't make you feel good. Just..have fun. :P

I know..I say it a lot..and then don't take my own advice.


Story of my life.

:) But I'm in an amazing place these days. Having fun with my friends..listening to great music (courtesy of THE sexiest DJs in SL)..working on projects for Connected. :) Just making my Second Life fabulous again.

Some days I wonder why I've logged in....

But when I get into the middle of my family..hop on a tip jar..lay on a couch..and I'm surrounded by the people I love best.. :) I know why.

Happy travels, kids!

Who Says You Can't Go Home?

Yesterday I updated my blog a little..changed the title page. In my search for the perfect quote..I found the following lyrics:

“When you look into my eyes,
And you see the crazy gypsy in my soul,
It always comes as a surprise,
When I feel my withered roots begin to grow,
Well I never had a place that I could call my very own,
That's all right, my love,
'cause you're my home.”

~Billy Joel

I had no idea how much that quote would fit with today.

I went to visit Borday, who was rezzing someplace new to live. And he rezzed..The Skybox.

I capitalize..because..The Skybox..was our home..for more than a year. That house survived sim moves, club ownerships, jobs, friends, taste changes, seasons.....

That house was ultimately us. It wasn't just a was home.

And when he rezzed it..I saw everything as it was. I saw the furniture..the poses..the moments..the conversations..the laughing..the fighting..the dancing..the everything.

I remember slow dancing in boxing gloves for hours..just talking. Sitting on pillows by the fireplace doing post-party rundowns. Racing each other to the bed at night before logging. Kissing under the mistletoe at Christmas time. :) Sitting by our Christmas tree and opening presents. Valentine's Day..birthdays...

That house..wasn't just a build. It wasn't just where I rezzed for the longest time. It was home. And some people ask..why do I need an SL home?

Well, to's like.......having a place you can always be. It's a place that's just yours. Private. Safe. And what makes a house a home is simple: happiness. It's what makes our RL homes a "home". And it's the same for SL.

I've heard that you can never really go home again. I agree and disagree with that statement.

You CAN go home. You just cannot go home to the home you once knew. But home..a REAL always there for you. It isn't about the name of your land..or the sim - it's about the way it makes you feel.'ve arrived. And you belong.

Mr. Moo will always be home to me - no matter how far we may travel from each other. I wish everyone were as lucky as I have a home in SL that would always be there no matter how big or little the fuck ups were.

So for me..those song lyrics really meant a lot more today than they did yesterday. And I think it's kinda fate that I fell on them when I did.

What does it all mean? I don't know. :) I just know..that I'm thankful he's a part of my life. I'm thankful for the ups and downs. I'm thankful for it all.

It's been a long way..and I've travelled a lot. But it's time. Welcome back home, Blissie Boucher. :)
