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…..

Personal

ZibskaBelovedWLRPOct

Joe Fox (Tom Hanks): It wasn’t…personal.

Kathleen Kelly(Meg Ryan): What is that supposed to mean? I am so sick of that. All that means is that it wasn’t personal to *you*. But, it was personal to me. It’s *personal* to a lot of people. And what’s so wrong with being personal, anyway?

Joe: Uh, nothing.

Kathleen: Whatever else anything is, it ought to begin by being personal.

~ You’ve Got Mail ~

Of all the movies I’ve watched in my lifetime with characters
spitting their knowledge on life, I’d have to say that
Kathleen Kelly’s Personal quote has been the most memorable for me.
Meg nailed it. I haven’t watched You’ve Got Mail in years,
yet what she says in this scene has stuck with me.
I can hear her voice now…”But, it was personal to me.”
What are we?
A bunch of machines?
Is The Tinman a distant relative, thus we have no heart?
Do we really interact with others on a daily basis using
“It’s not personal” as a license to do to them as we please?

I’m gonna spank ya right now, so bend over.
Ready?
Repeat after me…
It’s Personal.
One more time.
It’s Personal.
Thank you.

So, what brought all of this on?
Xfinity — the Home of Comcast.
Lord, these folks!
I wish unto the Heavens my former ISP had not done an Elvis (left the building).
I had no other choice but Comcast.
Over the years, I’d heard horror stories about their lousy service
figuring it couldn’t be that bad.
It can.
It IS!
The past few days have been a nightmare with their iffy service —
not knowing when it will go down and for how long.
Thursday topped the outage list with 17 hours without internet.
Perhaps today will be a new record as I’m literally creating this post via WordPad.
Contacting them brings on a whole new set of frustrations, too.
First, you have to get through their phony female machine
with it’s fake typing sound effect as it looks up your information.
That process takes even longer if you owe them money.
How dare they speak to you about owing anything when they can’t
provide what you signed up for.
The ingrates!
When I finally reach a “real person”, she began with
the standard, “I’m so sorry for the inconvenience.”
No you’re not!
That’s something you spit out in hopes that it will calm the complaintive.
It fuels my fire.
She was reading.
Everything she spoke to me was prompted.
How do I know?
No matter what I said to her, she kept repeating the same thing and would at times respond with something unrelated to my question.
“We will be refunding everyone for the time outage.”
I didn’t ask that. Nowhere did you hear me mention money.
She wasn’t personal.
Her superiors do not see us as individuals and find it easier to deal via note cards.
I’m so sick of that.
I’m flesh and blood here.
Approach me as the person that I am.

As I sit here without net access, I’m thankful that I was able to capture images of Zibska‘s contribution to this October’s We ♥ Role-play when it was up.
It would have been an utter shame to miss informing you about Bellona and Fini.

ZibskaBelovedWLRPOCT2

Bellona is a gorgeous Eyemakeup palette of 15
bold colors as only Zibska can do.
Glistening and attracting eyes to your own,
Bellona comes complete with appliers for
Letlutka, LAQ, Omega and Catwa.
Tattoo layers are also included for Classic Avatars.
Also available, but not pictured, is Bellona Lipstick
and Bellona Brows, as well.

Rounding out my personable look is Fini.
Boasting 21 color choices, Fini is one hell of a lipstick palette.
Zibska has made sure that no one is left out by offering
Letlutka, LAQ, Omega and Catwa appliers, as well as,
Tattoo Layers all in one pack.
These lippies will be my goto sticks!
I love the way they shape my lips inviting a more
up close and personal experience.
As with Bellona, Fini also comes in an Eyemakeup Palette.
With 15 colors, you can’t go wrong.
And btw, Zibska is having a 50L Marketplace Cosmetic Sale
until October 22nd.  So hurry!

Zib Scaggs, Zibska CEO and Creator is personable.
She’s approachable.
She listens.
And she puts out some of the best damn-ass makeup and
imaginative accessories on the grid.
Over the years, I have run to her products time and time again and will continue until the day she decides to stop.
Thanks, Zibb.
Thanks for being personal.

You get my High FURshion stamp of approval!

Well, looka here.

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….

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!

If

ZibskaAziza1

A very sad word,
If is.
It’s sometimes filled with regret…
If only I’d been a better daughter.
If only she would smile at me.
If he only knew…
A very sad word, indeed.

I’ve been rather melancholy as of late and If has cropped up
many times during my journeys down memory lane.
I dismiss the negative aspects of them immediately
since there is no use in regretting the past.
Saying that I have learned from them
is all well and good, but I sometimes feel we use that excuse
as an aid to dulling the pain.
The trick is finding your own way of reversing those Ifs, turning them
completely on their sides —
working them.
using them.
getting in touch with them.

ZibskaAziza2

I’ve discovered that one way for me to work my Ifs is
via Second Life Photography.
I’m not a great photographer, but when you are expressing
yourself, you really don’t have to be, do you?

I love texture which is why my images seem to have
more edge to them.
I also love color which I’ve said many times before.
Color & Texture.
There is only one solution…
ZIBSKA!
Zibska gives me so many choices, so I am never ever bored.
For this posting I chose current sales event and
Mainstore items.

Aziza is a powerful makeup collection available now at ULTRA.
Until October 10th, you have the opportunity to transform
your mundane into gorgeous insane with Aziza’s three part system.
Her Eyemakeup palette (15 colors), Lipstick (21 colors)
and Blush (9 colors) all come with Appliers for
Lelutka, LAQ, Catwa and Omega, as well as Tattoo layers.
She satisfies my hunger for color, Aziza does.
Now, for that texture….

Becky.
You probably know or knew someone called that.
But chances are she never showcased such movement as Zibska’s
hat of the same name.
With orbits that give the illusion of hat pieces breaking away,
Becky is not just a hat, but a work of art!
I am one hat-lover in heaven and if you’d like to join me,
the Mainstore is only a click away.

Color and Texture.
I’m ready to go!
Now, If only I could wear two heads to showcase all of this on….

Paper, ROCK, Scissors

RYRCabbitAd

Roshambo.
Another name for the decision making free hand game
mostly known as Paper, Rock, Scissors or some other
form of the three words.
You know the rules:
Paper covers Rock.
Rock blunts Scissors.
Scissors cut Paper.
Now, indulge me for a moment…

What if Paper represented Cancer and what if
Rock stood in the place of a cancer Patient?
Scissors can then be how the Rock views them —
Pharmaceutical companies, Chemo, Supportive family, etc.
Keep indulging me…

Paper (cancer) suddenly covers Rock (Patient).
Mind you, paper only covers.
It does not smother, contain or completely envelop it.
That means light can shine through giving the Rock
the ability to blunt the Scissors (Chemo, Fam, etc)
so they aren’t too difficult to handle; using them to be Paper-Free.
Indulging should continue, please…

Besides the Scissors, the Rock has a helper — a sidekick, if you will.
And it’s named after it’s Heroine/Hero….
ROCK.
YOUR.
RACK.

RYRCabbitSoulAd

If you haven’t heard, Models Giving Back will be presenting
Rock Your Rack, an annual charity event supporting
the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) this year.

Rubik Rights

CygnusAugustSquareDance

Defeated.
I guess that’s the only way to describe my position when it comes
to solving what won the 1980 German Game of the Year
for Best Puzzle….Rubik’s Cube.
I gave up years ago twisting and turning
each of those six faces covered by nine stickers
(current models have colored plastic panels for longevity).
However, the Cube lives on with it widely being considered
the world’s best-selling toy.

In the past, primary colored cubes brought back memories of
frustrating hours tearing out (my hair) and tearing in (my eyes).
That was until Cygnus Designs came along and gave me the
right to get my cube on.

CygnusAugustBoxed2Pieces

In keeping with this month’s DAZZLE Event theme celebrating
Piet Mondrian, Cygnus has created the Mondrian Cube Outfit.
100% Original Fitmesh, this multicolored cubed skirt is
compatible with Slink Hourglass/Physique and Belleza Mesh Bodies,
as well as Standard Sizes for classic avatars.
The matching Bra and panties can be worn via Omega Applier
and System clothing.

Victory is mine!
Thanks to Cygnus, I am now wearing the cube instead of the
cube wearing me down…..
