Take the Pledge..

I know times are tough for everyone, but..I think taking the pledge to see that no child goes hungry is important.  Even if you can't afford to donate, you can afford to spread the word to the blogging world and raise awareness.

Ushering in the Snow...

Let's see....

Since my last post, not too much has happened. Had a fantastic Thanksgiving - where I totally whipped up a Martha Stewart style dinner. :) And this year, there was no dying or sickness. Everyone lived and ate and then passed OUT from too much turkey.

And as is always my custom, I started decorating for Christmas. Since everything was so quiet on this long weekend, I logged in to SL to decorate my home there too. So I cleaned up the ground and decided it should be as snowy on the ground as it was in my skybox.

Of course, every adventure needs company. So I rang up Mr. Moo, who happily joined me on my snow hunting crusade.  He even help me change my radio to my favorite Christmas radio station..because DAMN..I love Christmas music (FYI, my favorite song is "Baby It's Cold Outside").

I had so much fun, I made him decorate his house too.  LOL!  And in my usual fashion, I snuck in and put cookies and milk out on his table.  Every house needs food!!!  His Christmas tree is gives out Christmas balloons too!  Mine's just..a plain old Christmas tree. 

Hopefully, I'll get to see more of you guys - I really do miss my crew.  :)

I hope you all had an amazing, safe, healthy and happy Thanksgiving and Black Friday.  Christmas is right around the corner now - have you decorated?  Will you?   

TTYL for now.

Have You Met....


I know, I know.  I don't blog about him as much as I did Mr. Moo.

Doesn't mean he's not very important to me.

:)  For the record, we celebrated our one year anniversary together last month.  One year since we met in a seedy year since he tried to take me on a date and I tried to ditch him..and one year since he had dinner in my apartment with me and we started talking, and I realized that this guy wasn't like other SL guys (Moo excluded). 

Over that year our RLs got CRAZY.  But we stuck it out, and I know now that......sometimes you get what you need when you NEED it, not when you want it. 

We laugh like nut jobs together..and he's so laid back..he makes ME laid back. 

:)  Whaddaya think?  Another year on the horizon?


Old Lives..New Lives.........Blurry...

It's funny what SL can do to you when you first start.  Or even your three years into it.

What's even funnier is how things can go from all encompassing to.....meaningless.  How people can fade from your rearview mirror and leave you wondering if they ever belonged in the picture to start with?

Though, it's strange how some people never fade from your life, isn't it?  Even when things are crazy..and hectic..and life's just sucking you into a big black hole - some people always surface in the sea of insanity and throw you a line to bring you back.  Those are the people you should always keep close.  Always remember to check in on THEM too.  Friendship is a two way street.

I'll always say it.....I've come so far in SL, and learned more about myself than I ever thought possible.  Fallen into so many black holes, and crawled my way out (never on my own - always with the help of the best friends in the world), stood tall and laid on the floor with footprints on me.  But..I always get back up.  SL isn't just a cartoon world.  It can beat you down if you let it.  It's the people you surround yourself with that can truly make the difference.

So to my besties..who made it from my old my new life..from my free skin to my pricey skin..from my house, to my island to my skybox.....

I love you.  And in this particular holiday season, I am more than thankful for you.  I am grateful.

Your world can change in the blink of an eye.  Make every second count - don't waste your time and energy on the unimportant things in this world.  Zoom out on that picture you're looking at and take it all in.  Best advice?  Just Live.
