If you could see me now…

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on November 24, 2009 by Yasmin Heartsdale

Those of you close to me know that I hold a great disdain for cancer.  It is my mortal enemy.  It takes those closest to me, and never comes to my door to fight me face to face.  I should consider this a blessing.  Cancer has not stepped foot directly in my house, yet it picks off those around me.

Today, I lost an aunt.  Actually, to call her an aunt is almost an insult.  She is more of a second mother.  It was a long and hard fought battle.  If there is any justice, it is knowing that she is in a better place, and at peace.

Our prayers have all been answered
I’ve finally arrived
The healing that had been delayed
Has now been realized
No one is in a hurry
There are no schedules to keep
We’re all enjoying Jesus
Just sitting at his feet

If you could see me now
I’m walking streets of gold
If you could see me now
I’m standing tall and whole
You’d know I’ve seen his face
If you could only see me now
You wouldn’t want me to ever
Leave this place

My light and temporary trials
Have worked out for my good
To know it brought Him glory
When i misunderstood
Though we’ve had our sorrows
They can never compare
What Jesus has in store for us
No language can ever share

If you could see me now
I’m walking streets of gold
If you could see me now
You wouldn’t ever want me to 
Leave this Place

I love you and you will be missed.

Thanks to all my friends and Family in SL that have been by my side throughout my aunt’s illness.

If you too have lost someone to cancer and want to share it with a grief counselor, or just someone in general, or want a quiet moment within SL to reflect, or are interested in finding out how you can help contribute to the fight against this damned disease, and that’s what it is…damned, then feel free to drop in at http://slurl.com/secondlife/American%20Cancer%20Society/60/129/51

Hug someone you love in RL today.  Hell, hug them every day you can.

Narrowing the Search

If you’ve kept up with my blog, you know the Family recently dropped the sim who’s name has been removed from our vocabulary as our home away from home.

Since then, it seems we have narrowed the field to two sims as possible replacements, both with equal attraction and merits.  This post pertains to one of those sims.

Out Skirts of Town.  http://slurl.com/secondlife/Funk%20Rush/228/233/25

A cute little sim dominated by two clubs.  One is a strip club and the other, the one pictured, is a cozy little getaway where events occur nightly, usually between 8 and 10 pm SL time, sometimes 7 and 9 pm, and the themes are as wacky as the regulars.

Out Skirts is a sexy, flirty, fun and underground dance club for TG’s and their friends and admirers.  So, if this crowd isn’t your crowd, stay away.  If you’re not uptight and can use a night of fun, laughs, jokes and just good wholesome conversation, then stop by.  Tell the owner, Plato, that some crazy bitch named Yasmin sent you.

I think what may have attracted us the most here is the complete absence of bdsm or the need to grab keys, hide keys, make keys, etc.  Its been a while since we found such a relaxed atmosphere.  Maybe several of us are burned out on the whole bdsm thing.  Could we be evolving?  Taking a mild break?  Who knows.  I do sense more on this as we progress though.

On the flip side, the other sim that has come up several times in Family discussion is being explored heavily by Dio, the head of the Euro Brat Division, and my sexy sultry neighbor, Tania Owatatsumi.  This sim is Estate Obscure.  To be fair, I’ve not spent nearly enough time exploring Alt’s sim to comment on its attractions, but I plan to do so in the near future so an entry can be dedicated to that locale as well.

I need to say a special thank you to Mistress for introducing me to Out Skirts and its lovely residents.  Oopsie, did I say the M word?  I think I might have just given away the topic of my next post.

A reply to the prior post

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on November 6, 2009 by Yasmin Heartsdale

This morning, I was graced with the courtesy of an instant message in-world from one of the individuals mentioned in my prior post.  The former owner of the mystery sub we are calling “Nic”.  By grace I mean he took the effort to un-mute me long enough to send me a message, then I am sure he promptly re-muted me.

This post is in reply to his message, and contains a few choice added retorts of my own.

First hon, allow me to thank you for following my blog so religiously.  I do value and appreciate my loyal readers.

As for my memory, it is fine.  I do recall your gift to Yar to help her acquire Yasminia.  I also recall her numerous attempts to repay you for that gift as well as your steadfast refusal to accept payment.  To throw that in my face now says more about your character than it does mine.

As with “the story with Yar” and me “not having the common decency to speak to you”, I did speak to you.  Perhaps your memory is the one that needs fine tuned.  Your last words to me on the topic were “Whatever she wants to do with “Nic” (innocent name inserted by me to protect the innocent) is fine with me.  I wash my hands of it.”  Of course, once Yar did do what she wanted with Nic, you responded by unfriending and banning everyone connected to her, including me.  If anyone had a lack of “common decency” with regard to talking through an issue it would seem to be….*insert drumroll here*….You.

I’m not sure I follow on your threat to blog about me.  From the looks of your current blog page, it seems you’ve forgotten the password to your account, or you’re just a poor communicator.  But hey, feel free to post all you want about me.  If a tree falls in the woods and nobody is around to hear it, does it make a noise?  We may never know.

Now, to address what you didn’t mention in your post, since I know you’re watching this site and I’m certainly not muted here.  You are a moron if you think you can talk about me behind my back to my subs and me not hear about it.  So, who was the forgiving friend?  You criticize my technique at putting my Family together and holding them together because you don’t agree with the underlying principles and philosophy that I foster?  Fuck you.  What gives you the right to judge me?  I sincerely do hope Dirk caves on your persistence to buy Stonehaven, so people can truly see what kind of character you possess sweetie.

My final word on this topic altogether, and your criticism of my ability to Domme.  Take a hard look at our Families dear.  Yeah, you know exactly where I’m going with that.  You own thirteen subs, that you KNOW about.  Think about it.

Now, YOU go and have a wonderful life.

You can never go home again

This next post has taken me several attempts to write, and is being published as several people have asked me for an explanation of some recent events.  I attempted to cool off prior to writing this post, but I apologize if I failed and my anger/hurt/sense of betrayal still shines through.  No, wait a minute.  Fuck that.  I apologize for nothing.

On February 1 of this year, I wrote about my home in Second Life, Stonehaven.  As in RL, there comes a time to cut ties and move on.

I recently sent a notice to my Family advising them that they were banned from the three sims making up the area known as Stonehaven until further notice.  Those that know me know this is a first in my Family.  As far as Dommes go, I am very lenient with my girls on where they can play, who they can play with and what nature of games they can play.  The only stipulation is that when I summon, they come.

So, for me to pass down this edict, the underlying issues must be pretty severe.

There exists in Stonehaven two individuals I used to consider very close friends of mine.  People I would have bent over backwards to assist, should it have been asked.

One of the individuals used to own a sub.  For the sake of the innocent and to protect all parties involved, lets call this sub “Nic”.  Nic left this person’s family, and was subsequently collared by one of my Brats.  The individual that used to own this mystery girl we’ll refer to as “Nic” responded by unfriending every person within my Family and I believe my inner circle of friends, as well as banned us from any sim he was an owner of.  This was all done without discussion of any form.  Dominant?  Petulant bitch?  You be the judge.

Nonetheless, I avoided this individual in an effort to let the matter pass hoping that time would cure any ill feelings and we could at a later date calmly and rationally discuss the matter.  It should also be noted that this individual, like myself, was a Warden at Stonehaven at the time of this incident.

Jump forward a few weeks, and I log on one day to discover that I, as well as any of my Family members that were Wardens in Stonehaven, had been “un-Wardened”, for lack of a better term.  This decision was made by the owner of Stonehaven, the second individual referenced to by myself previously.  It has been implied on the blog for Stonehaven that this decision was made as “several of those removed never visited Stonehaven anymore.”

Most of you that know me know I made a concerted effort, almost daily, to walk various members of my Family thru Stonehaven.  Next to my own island, Stonehaven was the most visited sim by myself, as well as several others.

Was our removal from the Warden ranks connected to the first mentioned issue stemming from the sub being collared by one of my Brats?  We’re still referring to her as “Nic” by the way.  To be honest, I don’t know.  What’s more important, I don’t care.  What is important is that I was once told that I would not be removed from the Warden ranks “ever” unless I asked to be.  So, I’m not upset over the possibility that this was the result of collusion between two prior friends.  I’m merely hurt by the betrayal and a broken promise, again without prior notice or discussion.

So, there you go.  My explanation for my actions and the notice sent to my Family.  Do most of you care?  I certainly hope not.  The only people with a real interest in this matter are those that are in my Family.  Am I right for my banning of Stonehaven?  Damn right I am.  Last time I checked, it was ***Yasmin’s*** Brat Pack.  Do people think I have over reacted and blown this matter out of proportion?  No offense, but you have apparently mistaken me for someone that gives a shit.

There’s several good sims within Second Life that will provide us with the break and entertainment away from our own island when we need it.  In time, we’ll find it.  Until then, we’re exploring and finding a lot of potentially promising and playful sims we were unaware of before this matter came to pass.  To be honest, its kind of taken me back to the exploring I did prior to finding Stonehaven.
