Trials of Eyeliner

Comes across all shy and coy, just another nancy boy

While you make pretty speeches
I am being cut to shreds
You feed me to the lions
A delicate balance
And this just feels like spinning plates
I am living in cloud cuckoo land

And this just feels like spinning plates
I am living in cloud cuckoo land
And this just feels like spinning plates
Our bodies floating down the muddy river
-Dash Berlin, Like Spinning Plates

I’ve had this song stuck in my head for weeks, and it sums up my last few weeks really, as well.  Not too many posts, you might have noticed, as my day job has been sending me all over creation as we come to the close of the fiscal year (Yes, yes, I’m a corporate wage slave, its true.) and prepare for annual reviews, next years committments, and a complete restructure of our team. Because there wasn’t enough going on, add in the End of the Year Big Pow Wow and I’m back and forth like a yoyo. Which, naturally, I felt was the perfect time to take a week off of work. For one, losing my mind to my job has already happened enough for this lifetime, and two, the Father Unit came out for Father’s Day and spent a week with me and my partner. So I took the time off to spend with him. A grand time was had, but alas, he has gone home and today is my last day of vacation.  Next week I’m off on a jetplane again and then its 4th of July and all new madness.

So in the interim, I made a pretty.

I could wax poetic about the splash of light and fallen shadows but really, all you perverts are looking at is my prim package. Go on, admit it.

As long as I’m feeling fickle, have you ever noticed that the majority of the people you encounter on SL that form into something resulting in being added to your friends-list is usually centered around a single topic? Like if you were to sort your friends list, you’d have buckets like: Fashionistas, Photographers, DJs, Food and GILFs?  And then there’s the rare cream that floats to the top where you’ve actually talked about other things, and become friends, and have honest to goodness conversations peppered with not-so-subtle innuendo maybe only the ocassional dip into casual poseballing. And then there’s the people you truly have this… thing with. You talk. About all sorts of things from photoshop techniques to who is having a yard sale on SL and my god what horrid hair you still have in your inventory that you just can’t bear to part with for nostalgia. People who you chat with and always walk away from with a smile and a little lighter shoulders because you enjoyed some company with no strings, manipulations, ties or maneuvers.

Cherish those folks. Even if you don’t speak often, make it count.
