I was on my SL Facebook account (yes, I have one) a while back and one of my friends had posted a question about soul mates. The question, I think, was whether or not we believed in them and if we only had one in a lifetime. It reminded me of my favorite quote from Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert:
. . . A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave. . .
In my life, both SL and RL, I’ve had what I’ll refer to as soul mates (notice it’s plural). My longest soul mate is my best friend from college who still puts up with my antics even though we’ve lived thousands of miles apart for almost the past decade. There are those who have come into my life in a romantic sense and even though things didn’t work out, they taught me about myself and still hold a piece of me. Of course, I can’t forget my RL sister who is my “sole sister” because she’s my running buddy and general partner in crime when we’re together.
So, in short… do I believe in soul mates? Sure, there are crazier things in life to believe in. Do I think you ever have just one in a lifetime? No. If you’re lucky then you have several.
So, I got a release that Vershe put out for the Singer Icon Fair and I couldn’t help but put on my mesh attachments. What can I say? It’s booty and booblicious. And, if that’s not already a word then it is now because I said so 😛 In case you haven’t gotten to the Singer Icon Fair yet, then you’re in luck because you still have a week!

When my niece was younger, she used to walk around singing this song. I swear it has to be the most catchy thing because you hear it once and it plays non-stop in your head after that. In fact, I started singing it as I wrote out the title to this blog. . . I like to think I’d make her proud but she may deny ever knowing that song since she’s almost 9 now. However, she’s a bit of a dork like her mother and I so she might embrace it.
Everyone meet Jaysen. He’s a pile of hot male pixels, no? It’s hard not to notice his pretty blue eyes and his manliness in the form of his beard. But, there is something you should know about Jay. It should be stated that he’s an alt. More specifically, he’s my alt. I usually only break him out for pictures or vendor photos when I can’t find a willing victim… I mean, person… yeah, that’s it. Anyway, I got bored the other day and decided to give him an updated look. Plus, I couldn’t resist showing off this suit that XIAJ is putting out for Avenue’s Autumn/Winter Fashion Week 2013. If you know any of the guys I’ve dated in SL then they can vouch for my being a sucker for a guy in a suit.
For the past few weeks, my SL has been a little bit different to say the least. It’s the first time in a LONG time that I’ve actually been single and just let myself be without someone there… romantically anyway. Though, I have to say that my friends have been awesome and encouraging. They’ve listened to my stories of debauchery and let me know that it’s okay to go a little wild. I don’t know why, but every once in a while I get a pang of guilt. Like talking to all these random people and flirting is wrong. But always being committed to someone will do that to you.
Sometimes when I sit here to write blog entries, all sorts of cheesy things come to mind and I know that most times they do make it in my writing. But today, I will refrain and try not to talk about how I’m probably going to actually start a war with all the delicious newness I have going on in the picture above. So, don’t worry because I’m not going to say it.
I also won’t mention how Mr. Bear here is ready for war because he’s got a gas mask. Though, I will tell you he is from yumyum and the pose is by elephante which they did in sort of a collaboration. Then I won’t tie in the fact that the pants I’m wearing are a collaboration between Cynful and lil’lace and that they are a part of the upcoming Dressing Room Fusion. Nope, not going there. However, I will mention that my top is new from Vershe and the jacket is also a new release from Corvus. Do you see how good I’m doing? In addition, I’m pretty sure the hair is a new release from Elikatira who has updated her hairs to use a HUD. Yay for less inventory 😀
Well, there you go. A blog post that’s not random and is not cheesy what-so-ever. It was tough, but I did it.
