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…..

Taste Like Chicken

WiccaIronHillsGlovesCat

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.
Memories.
They involve more than just the recollection of the mind.
You can smell Memories.
Hear them.
See them.
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?
Tis silly.
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.
Encouraged me.
Stood by me.
Accepted my mistakes
and loved me for who I am.
That someone…
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.

WiccaIronHillsGloves2Witches

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!

Furshion Approved

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…..

Bringing the Heat

ROAMay2

I don’t know why I love Disco so much.
Perhaps it’s because the height of it’s popularity was during
my adolescence.  Being raised a church girl, I secretly
wanted to be free, laugh and dance like the others my age.
Well, that was then and Summer Heat is now!

Exclusive to the DAZZLE Event, ROA brings us a sweet and sexy dress
perfect for raising temperatures.

ROAMay1

Summer Heat is light and airy — the perfect combination
for those who got to boogie.
She comes with two texture HUDS, is compatible with most Mesh Bodies
and gives me the inspiration to dance like I’m a teenager again.

Grab her.
Wear her.
Be sexy.

Sit Down Summer

Too_Darn_Hot(Featuring New HOC Industries Items)*

♥ Hot Flashes and Night Sweats.
Raise your hands if you know these two scoundrels personally.
If you haven’t a clue, press your hands together and praise the heavens.
I’m pretty sure I’ve written about this before, but it bares repeating…
It’s Too Darn Hot!
Summer makes me overheat.
Heat makes me sweat.
Sweat makes me miserable.
A miserable Zoomy makes on-lookers pity her surrounding loved ones.
Add the two scoundrels from above and you’ve got the makings of a war.
So, how does this woman put her hormones and the
elements aside to remain centered, grounded and a beacon of love and light?
A comfortable chair, plenty of ice cold water and
the best personal fan money can buy.

Enjoy your upcoming Summer —
raising the temperature of compassion and truth ♥

HOW TO SURVIVE ON DRY LAND

If you sweat on your nose, you’re mean!
Well, I must be one of the meanest people to hit this planet.
As you’ve already read in the previous adventure, The Eyes Have It, I can’t stand the heat.  Forever seeking ways to stay cool I have wet my wrists, fanned like a maniac with a paper plate, poured water on my head and stuck it briefly in the freezer.  Temporary fixes, I know.  But, one day as the Sun God is my witness, I will beat the heat and never go sweaty again.  Until then, it’s okay to look cool, right?
Glad you agree!
I’ve invited my buddy Zantelofas to help me in my endeavor to look cool against the sizzling odds.

We began by raiding Wicca’s Wardrobe.
He chose Ms. Merlin’s Eddy Suit and I, her Skully Corset — the perfect accompaniment to the suit (You’ll see why on the last image).  To shade and protect my delicate skin and sensitive eyes, I took  Wicca’s Velvet Parasol in hand and settled her Creature Glasses on my nose.
To test our theory that fashion can overcome the elements, we embarked on an adventure to a dried up lake bed in the middle of nowhere called Anita Witt’s Dryland.

ZZTops1

Yup.
Theory proven!
Zante looks amazingly cool in his Eddy Suit whereas I..well, I am me.
Zany, “out there” and…

ZZTops2

…sweating on my nose.

THE EYES HAVE IT

I hate sweating!
Tis why my looks could kill up above.
Yeah, random comment, I know.
But, when you get to be my age, there are just certain things that drive you completely insane:

*Neighbor that gets up at 6am to work on his cars (where’s my BB gun?)
*Local drunk crashing in your garage, but not before eating your carrots directly out of the freezer (Yes, that really happened)
*LAG
These situations and more irritate me, bring on hot flashes and then what do I do…Sweat.
What do my loved ones do?  Run.

So, what brought on this drip-dry subject?
Dainie Fraina, Designer and Owner of Artizana.
Now, let me straighten this up real quick before Dainie IMs me.
Kayes (rhymes with EYES), one of Artizana’s first releases and all-time best sellers was designed and named after a town of the same name in Mali, West Africa.  With less than 130,000 inhabitants (2009 census), Kayes (rhymes with EYES) has been described as the “hottest continually inhabited town.”  Daily average temperatures reach 97 degrees, peaking at 108 during April and May.  There is no doubt how this 380 mile town got it’s name as the “Pressure Cooker of Africa.”
How do the women my age deal with it?  If I were there, this is how I would:

EyesHaveIt2

I’d put on the fabulously cool and alluring Kayes outfit from Artizana
which comes in Aqua, Blue, Black/Ivory, as well as Purple, make sure there’s no gum on the bottom of my shoes,
take a big bag loaded with lemon water and hit the road.

EyesHaveIt3

Nothing beats my heat more than taking in gorgeous color of which the people of Kayes wear and making new friends.
I better get busy.  I have 130,000 potentials waiting!
