Blog post #179 caLLIE cline

 There are so many things that i wish i could say about caLLie cline. But i don’t want to take up much of peoples time. So, i will simply say this: I met caLLie about ten years ago at a sim that my best friend at the time owned. Although my friend’s time on this Earth was cut short, caLLie was one of the people that made my friend’s days special. So for that, i am honored to be showing you this item that she’s offering for The Peace On Earth Hunt.

POE6 – Ever ‘An Angel

Give Me The Fairy Tale

As a little girl I believed quite strongly in fairy tales.  I clung to the Disney movies we all watched as children and secretly (Although my mom says it wasn’t so secret) dreamed that I would some day meet my own Prince.  Back then the fairy tales presented women as almost helpless characters constantly in need of rescue.  As I grew older, I was pleased to see those roles take a turn to show the women not as weak individuals, but women of strength and know how, and most of all courage.   I still believe in fairy tales, just not as much as I once did.  I refuse to grow up or grow old gracefully.  And yes, I believe too, that one day my prince will come.  I’m sure you’re saying to yourself right now “What the heck does this have to do with anything, Saz” but I promise, the pieces will fit soon.

All over the world there are children right now who’s parents are going through hardships.  Little boys and girls who still believe in fairy tales, who believe in the knight in shining armor coming to save the day or… being the prince themselves.  Children who will have little to no Christmas because their parents can’t afford it.  And we can make a difference.  There are so many organizations world wide that help with Christmas for needy families.
 Toys for Tots, Make a Wish, Angel Tree, just to name a few.  So please, while you’re out shopping and running around like crazy planning for your own family and friends, take a moment to help a needy child.  Give them the hope that fairy tales can come true.

The Peace On Earth Hunt is still going strong and the designers have really gone out of their way to offer us gifts for the holidays that just make me smile.  Their generosity has been outstanding and it just keeps getting better.  The gown I’m wearing in the picture can be found at stop # 156, Ever An Angel.  The Siochain Gown is a simple yet beautifully textured and crafted gown adorned with snow flakes and lace trim around the neck and wrists.  When I first saw the gown, I just knew it was going to be wonderful.  They’ve even included the makeups I’m wearing.

POE6 Post 34 DaneMarkZ 1

I like wandering around in the snow in my evening gowns because it works much better for your self esteem.  The thing is … if you have no friends, no life, no lover, no social life … the only reason that sucks is that other people know and they point at you when you go to Walmart and say things like “Look there is that loser again who has not friends, no live, no lover, no social life.”

POE6 Post 34 DaneMarkZ 2

The trick is to fool them.

So you get all dressed up in expensive gowns and get your hair done and stuff and you go out and you wander around in the snow.  People either think you are waiting for your lover for a romantic tryst or that you are a beautiful recluse and they should go home and write a novel like Wuthering Heights because they just saw you and they will never be able to get you out of their mind OR breathe again unless they either paint you or write a novel that will become a classic and be made into some kind of an HBO movie that everyone will rave about for years to come.

Thank heavens I had this dress from Hannah Daviau of DaneMarkZ!

I told the freaking Sock Monkey Elf poser to lose the hat and that if he even thought about standing next to me I would forgo turkey and have stuffed monkey for Christmas dinner.
I didn’t want anyone thinking he was my date … although .. compared to some of the options in SL … that might be a big improvement …
O.M.G!!!  Did I just type that out loud??????

Believe

Our holiday show this year includes a reading of The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsberg. Since the chorus is mostly background to the reading, it can be a bit of a snooze-fest, but there is a lovely schmaltzy part at the end that goes like this:

Believe in what your heart is saying
Hear the melody that’s playing
There’s no time to waste
There’s so much to celebrate
Believe in what you feel inside
And give your dreams the wings to fly

You have everything you need
If you just believe

As you go about your travels and get closer and closer to the holiday, please take a moment to think about others. Whether it’s to drop penny’s in the bucket of a bellringer (Salvation Army) as you exit a store, or just to phone someone you know will be alone. Sometimes it’s the littlest of inconveniences that truly mean the most. So when you are buying “things,” toys that will eventually go unused, clothes that may or may not be liked, electronic gadgets that will be obsolete in a year or so, as you go about and pour your money into these endless unfulfilling voids, stop and think a moment. Could money be better spent? How about adopting an elephant? ( http://www.saveelephant.org/ ) or inworld, Eliza Wierwight Link How about throwing a gift to the JimmyV Organizationwhere 100% of you donation funds cancer research? (www.jimmyv.org ) Shoot, I’d reckon most have forgotten about Typhoon Haiyan, think about their struggles daily, they probably forgot all about the holidays just trying to survive. How about sending them the gift of hope for Christmas? ( http://www.salvationarmy.org/phl ) I’m sure any of these charities would appreciate the help and I guarantee, your gift to them would never become obsolete, unused, unwanted, or discarded.

We so often say someone is going to “get what they deserve” when they act badly. But the truth is it works with kindness too. Did you know research shows when you are kind to others, even if it’s just to acknowledge them with a “hallo,” it’s been shown to not only increase their happiness, but yours as well. More importantly though, kindness is contagious, so the person you were kind to is more likely to “pay it forward” to the next guy and so on and so forth. You plant a seed of kindness, the roots take hold, the limbs spread out further and further, along the way new trees of kindness are formed. Just imagine how wonderful the world would be if we lived in a forest shaded by comfort and kindness.

Take from? Yes, in the words of Coach Jimmy V, a NC State coach who lost his battle with cancer, “you have to have an enthusiasm for life. You have to have a dream, a goal. And you have to be willing to work for it. But most of all, don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.” Well, I have a dream, a goal and I won’t ever give up, even though it is a lofty dream. In my lifetime I have a goal of saving the elephants, curing cancer and helping others. And this holiday I hope to make my dream infectious. Because you know what’s infectious during the holidays? Kindness, hope, generosity, gratitude, forgiveness, and faith. Life isn’t perfect, but sometimes, just sometimes, if we don’t ever give up, all will work out for the best. You just have to have faith.

The SocElfky wanted a puppy.  Have you ever tried to say “no” to a Sock Monkey?  Well then times that by 5000 for one that thinks he is an elf and that he is the boss of everybody.  I have never heard a tantrum thrown quite like that in my whole life.  We weren’t even in a pet store.  The poor little kid just handed over his puppy because he just needed the insanity to stop.

This lovely yellow party dress is by Journey McLaglen from Prism and the shoes from Fizz Savira of Tonic match it perfectly.  I really like the textures in the dress and yellow is an unexpected bit of colour for the holidays.  JoJo Lowe of Timeless Designs has gifted everyone with a delicate jewellery set in softer tones.

 

I love the whimsy of a big cup of hot chocolate with candy canes and a wee panda bear hanging off the side of the cup – done by LoveFactory Violet of Love Factory.

 

The rocking chair is by Kira Spaatz of Geniwian and the wreath and candle which come in different sizes, is made by Clowey Greenwood of Cat and Dragon.

The Sock Monkey is nowhere near as loveable as an elf is.  I think it sucks I got stuck with one.  It brings back all my childhood nightmares and the sock monkeys that people made for us kids.  Those things just sit there and leer at you.  I am pretty sure that is the same leer that most axe murderers use and it is not festive at all.  And now my sock monkey has a “horse.”
 
I never for the pony I wanted from Santa.
 
Just saying I am feeling kind of bitter that axe murdering sock monkeys matter more than some little kid crying herself to sleep because there was no pony under the tree.

POE6 – Amacci, Sonatta Morales

A Hero Ain’t Nothin but A Sammich

A Hero Ain't Nothin but a Sammich

Hair: Amacci, Klara **PEACE ON EARTH**. Hat: Sonatta Morales *8*, Peace Bird **PEACE ON EARTH** . Both FREE!

I know, I know. I completely stole that title from Alice Childress’s 1973 novel for young adults. What can I say, creativity isn’t coming on strong this holiday season. But it seemed perfect for this topic because I’ve learned that sometimes during tragic events a person you would least likely expect to be the hero, is. I talk a lot about how our “us” “them” frame of mind discourages true harmony in our lives. Kind of weird, in this case, I found my own thinking could have been of the “us” sort, in other words, God forbid I am one of “them.” It is known the mall massacre in Nairobi Kenya was taken out by an Al Qaeda-linked Muslim terrorist group, but this isn’t about that story. This is the story of a Christian missionary woman who decided to take her children to the mall to entertain them a few hours.

 

Soon after the family had eaten lunch, the two older boys wandered downstairs to a department store, the mother and three daughters (I believe aged 1,2 and about 5) began to wander down to meet the boys but before getting very far, the shooting started. Taking the natural flight response, she grabbed her girls and hid under a flimsy kiosk and for the next four hours lived with the very real terror of trying to keep her girls silent, worry for her sons, and watching the terrorists walk by shooting any live or injured person they would see. Elsewhere in the mall, a man phoned his brother and asked him to pray for him because a group was violently taking over the mall. I am sure the brother said the prayer, but he also decided to go try to rescue his brother. My bother (yep meant to spell it that way) probably would have watched it unfold on TV and leave the law enforcement to, um, law enforcement.

A Hero Ain't Nothin but a Sammich

But this brother, arrived at the mall and as he was set to enter the mall from the parking garage, he received a call from his mall bound brother saying he was out and safe. The thing is, the man could have just backed away, gone to meet his brother, and went home. He chose not to, this brave man, he went in and eventually saved this Christian woman and her daughters.

A Hero Ain't Nothin but a Sammich

Hair: Amacci, Klara **PEACE ON EARTH**

The take from? I can hate the actions of Al Qaeda as much as the next person, much of what they do seems a senseless waste of innocent life. But this nagging “us” and “them” mentality? Well, it’s good to remember, things aren’t always as they appear. We should always strive to see people by their face value, not senseless labels, because the Hero? The fellow not even at the mall when it was raided? He was Muslim. Just a happy ending to think about, if you have the time on this busy holiday season.

Hey look at the awesome bench from Pattye Caproni of Sleepy Hollow Farms.  I am a believer!!

I kind of threw together this outfit.  I am pretty proud of it.  Cowboy hats and knit sweaters are big where I come from.  I love this combo from Poulet Koenkamp or Purple Moon Creations.  It was really different and unexpected from her and I plan on wearing them with pride.  The only thing better would have been if she had done a moose head sweater!!  I would have cried then.

Elbereth Nightfire of Star Kindler Designs made us this really sweet little brooch.  If you wear it you get to pinch everyone’s cheeks – not THOSE cheeks!!   Zalyn Bailey of Vogue did these super cool pants which just scream cowgirl to me … I mean hand me a horse and I am gone to where the deer and the antelope play complete with a piece of straw dangling out of my mouth and some tobacco to chew.  Where else do you get to role play anything but with so much class???

So as you can see the Schmelf’s replacement came.  I think I should be insulted because I suspect he is not an elf at all.  He looks a lot like a sock monkey to me or a Barbie doll … I always get those two mixed up.   I found him in the dirty laundry fondling some of the other socks.  I hope he is house broken.

Here I am at the bridge waiting for the new replacement for Schmelf.  They just said “go to the bridge, someone will contact you there … the password is ‘the black condor.’”  Thank heavens that Krysta Ember of Inspired made us all a bridge complete with poses for the POE hunt this year.

Chiana Meredith of ChiChikie!has offered this cap with hair for me or women and Silexe Core of 69 Park Avenue has given us this toasty warm coat, scarf and jeans … it is supposed to be for guys but hey guys wear our stuff so what the heck right?  At least I am not trying to date someone pretending to be a guy. (although Schmelf told me I was flat enough to pass for a boy or a wooden soldier or even an ironing board.  Did I mention that Schmelf is no longer with me at the moment and a replacement is coming??)

POE6 Post 28  69 Park Avenue, ChiChickie!, Inspired 2
I got a lot of hang up calls.  I am pretty sure I could hear heavy reindeer breathing and some hoof scuffing in the background.  Those elves and those reindeer are pretty tight.  I think Schmelf might have taken a hit out on me.  If I am found dead in a ditch with hoof imprints all over my face … tell the police to look for the little guy in the red suit.
