Easter Egg Hunt

cys5a

I went shopping for the perfect Easter Egg yesterday. One that was all pretty and lovely and chocolatey.   (it's a word if I say it is a word ... it is my blog!)

cys4a

I prayed about it. I figured this being a religious holiday and this being important to me that I would ask for the perfect egg to be made just for me and that there be some kind of sign that THIS was the one. I sometimes have difficulties making up my mind when signs are not like ... obvious.

I think the unclear sign thing is probably responsible for more bad marriages than anything else. People think they hear angels singing and it is just a fridge door left open too long somewhere.

So I went out and the Easter egg aisle was a complete free for all with people swearing at one another to get the hell out of their way they had to get home in time to go to church and other people threatening to use their pepper spray if someone didn't hand over their Cadbury's. I walked along, stepping over bodies, and avoiding small children clearly not needing any more chocolate or any other stimulant and saw a light down at the end of a long aisle. I walked up to it and suddenly ... angels singing!! I cocked my head to be sure and I could clearly make out words like "ahhh ahhh ahhh" and "Jesus" and "Gloria in excelsus deo..." THIS WAS IT!!

I looked down and saw a beautiful chocolate egg with "Bliss" in script writing - clearly hand done by monks living only on the purest of nuts and berries and yak milk up in the Tibetan mountains somewhere. I reached for it and had it in my hands when suddenly it was snatched from me by a woman with a cart full of candied everything .. some of them looking suspiciously like Christmas candy. She was mean looking and she had bits of rabbit fur or something in her teeth and a dead chicken under one arm so I knew, despite my having wrestled steers on the farm, she would annihilate me. 

I tried begging. I cried. I asked her if she could not hear the angels singing?  She couldn't.  That is the sucky thing ... often when they give you that sign ... you are the only one who can see/hear it and trying to convince others usually ends up with either you in a looney bin or going on tour with Billy Graham.   She just walked off with a smirk on her face.  I threw myself on the floor and was having a complete tantrum but got scared when some mother picked me up and asked me if I wanted time out in the car by myself or to deal with the consequences when she got me home.  It's not easy climbing out of one of those shopping carts. 

I had an idea.  I went and got the store security all the while asking God why he was being so difficult.  A sign is supposed to seal the deal ... not just say, "hey ya ... here is perfection .. watch it disappear in the mean lady's cart." Store security asked me what I wanted to do about it and I told him I did not believe for one moment that woman's name was Bliss or anyone in her family ... therefore, by default, and under the laws of Easter Egg 101, the egg should go to me.

I didn't get the egg.

I am not even celebrating Easter now.

cys1a


Angels should not be allowed to sound off when there is a woman married to some 50 year old guy named "Bliss" within reach of my answered prayer.

Who do you talk to at Linden Lab about a name change??

A Grown-Up Easter.

otd1


Kids don't appreciate egg colouring like we did when we were kids.

  otd2

When you have to go and get the eggs from chickens that have the capacity to end your life ... you don't just colour those puppies willy nilly. You think about the colours you add, and the design and appreciate that you even made it out of the chicken house alive with any eggs at all.

You coloured them, and the table, the chairs, your clothes, your fingers and a couple of the cows your grandfather made you hand milk for the sick calves, making rainbow teats the envy of all the other cows and putting quite a festive stamp on the Easter Celebrations.

You thought of those eggs and appreciated them every time you looked at the life ending wounds that covered your body from the chickens that wanted to kill you ... the wounds that took months to heal because chickens must spit on their talons or something before they claw you.

And then you would have the eggs all in a beautiful basket and everyone "oohing and ahhing" in a positive way over the eggs and in a sympathetic way over the deep severe chicken wounds ... and it was just this magic moment of childhood.

Oh course Easter comes and goes and parents insist the eggs not be wasted and so there are egg sandwiches for the next week ... except my brother and I always got sick of them and buried them out in the yard. We would say we loved them, take as many as we could and run outside. There was no plan ... it was just instinct .. an unspoken pact between my brother and I.

otd3

We ran right next to the chicken house and started digging, making elaborate gestures with our bandanged hands, making sure the eggs .. all chopped up and covered with mayo were visible... which may have been part of the reason the chickens were so bitter.

Chickens hold grudges.

My Life Is Now Complete.

iap2a

Yesterday as we grabbed the train into downtown Brissy, hubby reached for the door and opened it for me to go through. He is such a gentleman.

iap1a

The train was basically empty, but immediately 3 young men, about 17 - 19 came from behind, and pushed past me, almost knocking me over, to get on.

You could tell, even from their casual dress style, these were privileged young men. They sat together and immediately pulled out all the latest and greatest electronic gear and put their designer shoes up on the seats so they were nice and comfy. When the security for the train asked them to remove their feet, letting them know the fine was several hundred dollars, the boys laughed amongst themselves and nudged each other saying they would never pay it anyway ... I mean not as accustomed as they were to having mommy and daddy pay for everything and having failed the manners class at their privileged private school (they had an emblem on their gear) ... there was every possibility they had also had difficulty with civic duty, math ... and who knows what else.

iap3a


Isn't wonderful what good care we take of our youth, holding the doors just for them, even though we are complete strangers and have our own lives and were not even thinking of them that morning when that wonderful, incredible opportunity presented itself for us? Can you hear the angels singing? I still get shivers. I mean in that one moment our lives were just ... just ... validated ... to be able to serve those important young men in some way.

And I bet you thought this was going to be a post condemning the lack of manners of privileged little douche canoes who think the world owes them a living ... didn't you??

Blinking.

test

I learned today that women blink twice as often as men.

test2a


I am not surprised at all. I think God took a look at Adam and realized what he had done and had to give a woman some way of dealing with life when she could not believe her eyes over what he had done this time.

I mean when you look at the whole apple deal I would have said, ok so the woman made a bad a choice but Adam didn't even accept any responsibility ... he just pointed at Eve and blamed her for "making him."

test3

That pretty much clears up a couple of things ... who wears the pants and who is missing a brain.

Blink. Blink.

Easter in Canada.

sic3

Someone asked me what we did in Canada for Easter. That questions always leaves me torn .... between being a good citizen and telling the truth.

sic1

I should tell them we colour our Easter eggs, attend church, have family dinner, eat chocolate and do the whole fluffy bunny and little chick thing. I should pull out Hallmark cards and point out all the Canadians playing the role of people embracing the wonders of spring with babbling brooks and birds singing and blue skies with white fluffy clouds. But we have the internet now ...

sic2

And how do I hide the pictures of people in their winter gear trying to shovel through the snow in minus 40 degree weather to find their cars? Any bunnies or chickies in that mess are clearly dead, and the children are fighting over pieces of coal they can use to warm their hands.

It isn't exactly a "Come visit Canada in the springtime" kind of Easter vacation invite now is it?

Sunday Morning Mind Control.

abw2

Every Sunday morning the Biffster and I woke up to some type of religious music blaring on the stereo. My grandfather had a kick ass stereo for being on the prairies in the frozen Northland. The booming from the bass members of the choir bounced the cows 3 miles away in the far north pasture ...

abw1

All farmers had to go to church on Sunday's back in the day.  I think they had to show their Sunday School Card in order to get their government wheat prices or something.  No-one likes taking grain from some type of non-religious farmer.  Ewww that would just be sooo wrong. 

Evidently they taught deafness in the Adult Sunday School Class which sadly, I never had the chance to attend because well, I was not an adult for many years and then ... I was an adult on the lamb ... having escaped the prairies.  I think they may have taught that as a way to keep us out of control kids in check.  We were so out of control.  We used to hang out at the cow barn and harass the chickens that would walk by, tipping over bales, and disrespecting the wheat fields.  It is a wonder any of us grew up to do anything respectable. 

Religious music had to be cranked so that we had to use sign language to speak to one another over the breakfast table.

  abw3


I also think it was the main reason we went to church ... just so we could get in the car, close the doors and hear ourselves think ... oh and plot our escape of course ...

Taking SL Habits to RL.

otg2

I think it is funny when you see someone, obviously an SL player, trying to recreate SL in real life. It is like an unspoken code between us. You see them and you nod, and you both know what is really going on.

otg1
 
 

Like when you are in a furniture shop and someone asks if the bed comes with a sex engine or is looking for the pose balls.

Or you see someone standing in the check up line and they pose and then turn and walk back and then forwards and then stand there and rock their body back and forth a little, running their hand through their hair and then looking at their wrist ... and there is no watch.

Sometimes you see them doing a pre crouch and then leaping into the air in a really elegant pose as if they are going to fly. It always happens when there is a crowd and they seem to want to get to the front of the line. Then they land and they either roll, fall flat on their face or do this elegant "ta da" thing.

Another thing you see them do in crowds is start taking off things like their hair, their falsies, their jewellery. I like the bewildered look on their face when nothing happens but I never laugh because I know this is probably the first day they have had out of SL in a long time and they are probably just confused.

Most of all I like it when I see them wearing impossible heels and dresses that do not stay put for a nanosecond due to the natural laws of nature. I see them hobbling in those shoes wincing with every step, exposing themselves to heck and back, thinking they look amazing ...


otg3



They are the easiest SLers to spot because most of them are men ....

Confession Time ... Again ...

wop1



There is a Cosmetic Fair coming to SL. I was dancing on my chair when I saw that.

wop2

I am a cosmetic junky. Ever since Yardley came out with their little Pot'o Gloss line I was hooked. I love all things cosmetic. I like to just stand in the perfume, cosmetic departments and drool.

 I like the containers, I like the packaging ... I love it all. I have dozens of everything ...

I don't even need to open them, it is just knowing that if I wanted to ... I could.

Hubby was taken a restraining order out against the Avon Lady. I have to be accompanied into that department of the store now. My makeup bag is often the biggest part of my luggage going anywhere.

I do try to reduce and simplify. I look at all those women with their tiny little all in one, fab, expensive compacts ... and ya ... I have dozens of those.

  wop3

I just never have been able to pick out the right shade of lipstick. I like it in the store and hate it when I get home so now I have my one daughter shopping for lipsticks for me.   She couldn't handle me wearing the wrong shade of green with my pink outfit.

It is a pity thing. If you embarrass people enough with the way you look they tend to want to "help."

Worked the angle all my life and you should see the free stuff I have!!

I Have Been Wondering.

ist1a

According to the news that is brought to my desktop every morning - riveting stuff, this falling in the category of "Oh for freaking out loud do I LOOK like I care about this crap?" Kate Middleton's nose is in big demand at the local Plastic Surgeons Office.

ist2a

Before I go on I should tell you I was practicing Plastic Surgery as a little girl on the farm in the frozen northland and I am not sure what the big whoop is with the whole profession or why they make them even go to school. How much education does it take to get a knife or scissors out and cut up your brother's plastic soldiers?? He did the same to my Barbies. Then you get a match, light a candle and melt them back together again. But NOT the Barbie parts on the soldier .. that would be mad scientist type of domain and you have to act responsibly with these things.

Anyway Kate's nose ... and then there are other parts people want ... Cameron Diaz's legs, Selma Hyack's breasts, Angelina Jolie's lips ...lets get to the point.  How can we let these injustices go on?? 

I suppose if they take these women to court from the plastic surgeons office and the judge charges them with copyright infringement, someone has to repossess the nose in question?  Who gets custody of it?

  ist3a

And worse yet, what if one of these women show up at the same party with the same nose???  Can you imagine the scandal? 

I don't know how anyone sleeps at night anymore.

It's A Miraculous Night For Yours Truly.

bis1a

Big night at the OK corral Got the remote, flipping back and forth between the final of The Block and an elimination cook off on My Kitchen Rules. YES!! I am watching TV.

bis2a

Quick could someone like invite me for coffee tomorrow or something so that I can discuss the merits of these shows?  I am taking notes. I am pressing my flowered dress. I have people I hate. I can discuss their clothes, what she said and then what she had the nerve to say back to her.

Pick me!

For crying out loud would someone just please start an inane conversation about these shows because I so can join in!!

bis3a

I am going to take cliff notes and make hubby stay up all night and study them so just in case no-one invites me for tea. He can role play girlfriends with me.

 I am going to press and extra dress for him.

Darkness Transecends the Morning.

ltp3

As I mentioned, hubby is very big on conserving water, power, money etc. To be fair he is the genius behind our fabulous life style so please don't tell him about this post, he has just now become numb to my constant abuse on here and I think me being kind might compromise the callouses on his tender feelings.

ltp2

I admire his ideas and suggestions most times but sometimes, like last night ... I have to just shake my head and wonder where I wrote down the Australian number for emergencies. (It is not 911 and they won't even take into account I am Canadian when I call 911 and answer it ... I mean how hard can that be and I am usually crying or really upset when I call.)

We both got our coffee early in the morning and came around the corner from the kitchen, to go down the long hallway, each to our own office, and he turns out the light. Complete blackness. In the very same hallway where hot tea, much screaming and a toe hanging off where it normally was supposed to be - pointing in a completely different direction - happened. (read all about it here)

I freeze, knowing he is coming up behind me, not sure where I am going, reliving all the trauma of aforementioned toe, toe itself whimpering on the cold tiles, my hands shaking ....

I am almost in a fetal position, except I am a fetus with a really hot cup of coffee in my hand who is holding it verrry carefully.

"seriously ... can I work off the cost of the electricity for the light just to find my way to my office?"

He snorts at me. 

He actually snorted.  Thank heavens it gave me some idea of where he was and I crawled out of the way ...

ltp1a


He thinks he can see in the dark, like a bat, but then I remind him of Canada, Elijah and Megan's and those back kitchen stairs and suddenly the light goes on and he tells me he will find a way for me to work off my debt as he steps over me on the floor and goes to his office.

I am carrying a flashlight with me down that hall from now on.  I will  sell doilies so I can afford batteries.  We are going down to my mother in laws place this weekend, I can put a few in my purse, she will never miss them.

It's a Dead Giveaway.

cow2a

It took me awhile but I figured it out.

cow1a

I don't have to worry about much with my husband but when he takes to whispering to anyone in the house or on the phone, I know it can only mean one thing ... something is in the house, he is not sure where it is, and he is praying that it goes anywhere but near me before he finds it. And for some reason, he feels strongly that he needs to confess this to whoever will listen to him. I think that it is so someone will know what has happened to him, should the "creature" and I meet up before he gets it.

Of course, the moment I hear him whispering now I come running and demand "What is it?" First I need to know how scared I should be and how loud I should be screaming. There is no sense wasting a snake scream on a mere gecko. The gecko will be had and even if it is not, it is not going to come near me and should it accidentally happen to be near me I am not going to end up dead.

The next question is "Where did you last see it?" I need to know that so I can move as far away from that spot as possible, making as many barriers between me and the creature as possible.

cow3a

And finally, the most important question, that everyone thinks of at times like this, "Where is my mommy? "  I definitely want her.

Those Swell Years.

pgl1a

You know how you had some friends growing up that you should never have been allowed to be alone with? It was just kinda like spontaneous combustion?

pgl2a

I had a girlfriend like that. There was no point in us reciting the Lord's Prayer at church .. for a couple of reasons. Firstly they didn't need to worry about anyone leading us into temptation, we found it all by ourselves; and secondly, having everyone else close their eyes and leave us to our own devices was a recipe for disaster. We were the ones who decided that we should drink Grandma's "Hospital Brandy" in fancy dessert glasses with olives and got so sick neither one of us could talk about it for 3 years.

We also figured we could make our own cigarettes and pulled some paper out of our school exercise books, rolled up some grass in it, and lit it on fire and totally inhaled. After we finished coughing, putting the fire out, and making sure we still had lips ...we saw some awesome colours ... and a herd of penguins that were running up the side of the sky and leaping into the cow trough one by one.

We also went half-ers on a 26er of lemon gin for a party and drank it all because who was going to take it home? We ended up trying to crawl "back down" to the floor which was actually the ceiling, which we totally missed on account of we thought it was so cool that we were floating up on "the ceiling" which was actually us unable to get up off the floor.

Eventually we grew up and gained some sense and did what any sensible adult does when they realize how stupid they were as a kid...

Took out restraining orders on each other, changed our names, moved to different cities, and blocked each other on Facebook.

It's A Deal.

asg3

Hubby cooked last night.

asg2

He came in half way through with an empty package of noodles to show me the expiry date was last year. Note I said "empty package."

Then he said, "They should be ok."

"Are you asking me or telling me?"

"They should be alright."

When in doubt repeat yourself and ignore any challenging questions.

"And if they aren't, and we are dead in the morning?"

asg1

"I won't use the other package. I'll go ahead and throw it out."

Poltergeists in the house!

Skin Fair 2013 7 Deadly Skins Envy, Lust, Sloth

7Deadly Skins 1

Izara Zuta is a completely new skin designer to me and can be found at the Skin Fair 2013 with her offerings of the first of 3 in a series of 7 (I am presuming) called Envy, Lust and Sloth. There is always the possibility for more than 7, in that new things are being discovered and created all the time and why should sins be exempt from all that fun?

7Deadly Skins 2

I find it really exciting to watch someone develop their talents, their lines and their vision. Again, you need to try her demos and see what you think with your shape and your SL life because seriously we have sooo many variables that impact how a skin looks on each of us. Don't be afraid to pick up the demos and really play around with them. Leave it overnight and take a second look the next day.

Skins are a big cost and it is easy to get frustrated when a skin that looks fantastic on our favourite blogger, or in a photo, does not look good on us at all. It is easy to accept those same people telling us that when they tried the skin, it did not work for them and to not give it a go ourselves.  Don't dismiss a designer completely even when you have tried one of their skins that you did not like. Go back, check them out again. Every designer improves over time.

Sunflower Trauma.

sbb2a

My brother and I had to go stand in a field of Sunflowers once so that my grandparents could get a picture. It didn't end well.

sbb3a

First of all you could not even seen us as we were not tall enough and so we got lost and wandered the field for hours.  I had to slap my brother several times, not that he was screaming or anything, but sometimes your survival instincts just take over and you find yourself slapping people. I know I felt much calmer for doing it.

Then there was the fact that ginormous flowers attract ginormous bees and we both got stung so bad we puffed up and we were lucky our shoelaces were untied and caught in the flowers so we were like two bobbing balloons off in the distance, miles from the car. I could barely see or hear my grandmother as she waved her hanky at us and told us to "turn to the camera" and "smile."

And then there was the farmer and his gun and his killer dog and attack Goose that he let loose on my grandfather. As entertaining as it was to watch him dodging buckshot and running that fast, it kind of ruined the whole day when grandpa hid in the back seat, the goose followed him in, and then had a fatal accident all over the back seat.  Oh the goose lived, the people in the car probably would not.

My brother and I begged the farmer to just shoot us both rather than make us get in the car to drive home with that smell but our grandfather stuffed us in and drove off before he could reload.

Sometimes that picture would fall out of the family album and my brother would get all emotional.  Slapping him again was the humane thing to do because that is the kind of sister I am ... life can push him all over the place but when it gets near the edge, my Super Sister Powers go into overdrive and I do whatever it takes to bring him back ... alive ... whimpering ... but alive ...

When You Head For The Middle of Nowhere.

btb1

Hubby has this great idea that now the new garage/shed/man-cave is built, we need to fill it with lots of sporting and camping things so that we can go across the wilds of Australia untouched by man.

My idea of camping is staying at Motel 6.  It is not that I have not camped, I did.  I have the t-shirt.
He thinks anything but Australian camping is 5 Star camping.  Like eating bugs and drinking your own urine is something you want to talk about in public places.  No-one actually wants to know about it ... well not and ever share a drinking glass with you ever again.

I tried to talk him out of it. I asked him what about the killer creepy dude at Wolf Creek? They never caught him. We could be killed out in the middle of nowhere and who would even know?  He said he promised we would not go anywhere near Wolf Creek. Like duh ... that's the whole point, Wolf Creek is probably the only safe place to go. Who knows where the guy is hiding out now?

He is quite excited about all the fun this is going to be. Him, me, the 4 wheel drive, the camping gear, untouched by man land ...

I hope he knows that the land won't be the only thing untouched by man on this trip.
