Coffee & Pizza Crusts

2017-07-14_012.png

Visiting over my 2nd oldest daughter’s house today, my grandson Novel said he wanted pizza for breakfast.  So, I made a breakfast pizza and we sat while I drank coffee.  And it reminded me of my RL mother, Miss F. So, while eating breakfast with my grandson, I decided to tell him a little bit about her and now I’m sharing the story with you.*

I remember when I was little, my mom would sometimes have her leftover pizza crusts with her coffee. Sometimes…it’d be toast.  But always from this big glass roundish coffee mug. I always thought it was so cool; the coffee…not the pizza part.  Once when I was little, she let me try her coffee. Now that I think of it, she had WAY too much Coffee-Mate in it (I can actually still taste it as I sit here and rewrite this from earlier). I didn’t care though. It was hers and she shared it with me and that was before I understood that there was such a thing as too much creamer. I loved it. It made me feel so grown up; like I was the bomb (as my grandbaby put it lol)…the absolute bomb. Later in life she taught me how to make coffee using her old percolator (man that thing was old) and we’d enjoy our own separate cups together. It wasn’t so much about the coffee that made it so important; it was that feeling of inclusion and warmth that came with sharing a moment with her…and her sharing something she really enjoyed with me.

It’s funny what the human brain holds on to and how it retains the memory.  A flashback, a quiet moment or even a simple story can trigger the factory senses and bring you right back to the moment where you felt wanted and loved.

Though they may only be my virtual babies and grandbabies, I hope they realize just how much I love having them in my life and how much I care for each of them.  I never want them to question that they are both wanted and loved.  Be it playtime with my grandson, getting my butt kicked at Cheesy by my former son-in-law or simply having a cup of coffee and sharing memories…it’s all part of what makes me, me. And that, like the coffee…is a gift I got from my momma.

Solace

Some days, the noise in my head is so loud…so big, that I can’t hear anything. I can’t hear words, music, talking, breathing…nothing just this loud noise. It sounds like everything and nothing all the same…all at once.

2017-06-06_006

And no matter what I do, no matter where I go…if I close my eyes, the noise just doesn’t go away. I found this quiet little spot and for a few moments and had hoped that it would offer solace.  I don’t know…maybe?

New DJ Promo Shots

So after being asked to supply the people who are honoring me tonight with a DJ photo of myself, it hit me…TIME FOR NEW PROMO PHOTOS! Honor you say? Why yes. So let me Tarantino this for you right quick. Tonight is Zeta Gamma Rho’s First Annual Black Excellence Gala, an event honoring Black-owned Businesses in Second Life.

And for those who didn’t know, not only am I a blogger and a store owner (KJ Immortal: Home to KJIm Apparel | KJIm Kids Apparel| KJIm Poses … KJIm for short 😛 ) but I have been an online DJ in Second Life since 2008. Not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things. But it is something that I truly enjoy and am proud of having done for so long. I love playing music for people, taking requests & interacting with the crowd…hopefully making their booties shake and sing along behind their comps. I know that I’m not the best at what I do (especially since I don’t live mix)…but to be considered is an honor nonetheless and I’m extremely grateful for the award.

Anywho, after rifling through my closets trying to find the perfect look, I snapped a couple of shots and then couldn’t decide which one looked better so I made two.  Feel free to put in comments which one you like better.

If you’re looking to complete the look, you definitely want to head over to Blueberry to pick up her latest release because these swank boots come with it! The detail on the heel is to die for; so intricate! And if you get the fatpack you get exclusive colors along with both the regular jean and leather huds (which I’m wearing right in these shots here…RAWR)!  Rounding out my look are what might be my newest favorite piece of body jewelry: the Coax bellychain from Cynful. I love how the ball bearings are pulled together to complete the look. You can pick that (and some really hot lingerie) up over at Whore couture until 03/31/017.

Anywaaaaay, now that the promos are done…time to get changed for tonight! Ciao for now kids!

I Think I’m Doing It Wrong…

Ok let’s do real talk for a moment:  A long while back, I was taking a yoga class for the first time in my life.  We took to a resting position which most people just call “lie on your back and breathe,” but in yoga terms is called “Corpse Position”.  THERE IS A REASON THIS IS APTLY NAMED SO!  I’m a very top heavy woman IRL so THIS was not the best position for me to be in! My boobs were literally trying to roll OUT of my bra and on to my neck! I almost died in yoga class!

That being said, I figure I can try yoga again…SAFELY…in SL. Especially since I’m getting married and want to be fit and tight in my wedding dress. I see the yoga ball and think to myself, “okay…this can’t be bad. It’s a ball…c’mon!” So I figured eh…why not…

2017-03-08_002

Yeaaaah…I think I got this wrong! And now I remember why I hate yoga! Screw this…I’m going to go have some fries and a frosty at Wendy’s.  I’ll just have to get a bigger damn dress. I’m out!
