…. Cake is for Kitty and Co.
I’ve been having SUCH a giggle lately, on SL (thanks to Plurk) and it’s been so nice! Having fun, having awesome ppl by my side while we lime jelly dance and put each other off tringo while LOLing at every other sentance… it’s just been a blasty blast… and there was this discussion on Plurk about caring a week or so ago and it got me to wondering, and of course.. PONDERMENT..ing…?
I’ve tried to live a pretty quiet SLife, I’ve been in the limelight when I haven’t wanted to be and hated being there, and I try to stay out of it as much as I can, I like living drama-free, it’s nice and quiet and it gives me a chance NOT to stab ppl in the face, and i’ve changed SO much since the days of anon haters, I used to cry, quiet literally, when I was torn to shreds, then I grew some balls (on someone else, not me) and decided I didn’t care and shrugged it off… but do you ever REALLY shrug it off? I started to care again a lil while ago, and took a LOTRO break, now i’m back and wondering if I do or don’t care?!
I might say I don’t care, but I do, well I don’t but I DO! It’s so hard to explain. I speak my mind, but I speak it carefully, as I HATE HATE HATE to offend people, and I hate it when I get upset about things that I probably should just shrug off, cos i’m a nice person, I’m a VERY nice person (I am!) and when you try and live without dramatics and llamas spitting at you, and they do anyway, it gets awfully frustrating to say the least!
I guess my main reason to post was to ask you to ponder yourselves this question: Do you *REALLY* care what others think, or what others are doing/saying/eating/making/somethinging? Is it *REALLY* that important in the grand scheme of life to you?
I mean we all like some good gossip, and sometimes drama pops up and you grab popcorn and watch, we ALL do it, but it really necessary that we concern ourselves with other ppl and what they are doing, where they are going, where they’ve been, what the colour of their pubes are, if they have 666 tattooed on their tushes etc etc? I know it’s not always that easy, hell I have, upon occasion, been stuck in the middle of stuff going Whaaaa? with a puzzled look on my face, but people, DOES IT REALLY MATTAH???
I think since having another baby, i’ve figured wtfever with SL, i’m there for fun, i’m there for PIXELS (not pixel slapping, there is a difference), i’m there to be me in tiny lil blocks all perfectly formed, i’m not there to find something in RL (apart from friendships <3), i’m not there to make anything, i’m purely there for shits and giggles, I don’t care if Mr A ran off with Mrs B when Miss C was in the conservatory with the lead piping killing Mr and Mrs D, and Mr E was taking all of Mrs F’s belongings to sell to Miss G who witnessed it ALL and made up notecards while Mr and Mrs H were snapping Miss I on the toilet with her rabbit called Mr J.
Why do we care so much? I know it makes us human, but at what point do we stop? When do we stop concerning ourselves with what others think about us, when others don’t really know us at ALL??
I’m so happy in RL, and i’ve been happily dramallama free for sooooooooooo long now in SL (and hoping it stays that way!, which is why i’m a hermit :P), and I hope you all are too :D
*MAKES CAKES FOR EVERYONE!*
