Blog Hero Challenge - #1 & 2

so there are more blog-challenges to be found lately ... as I saw on Rudh's and Guen's blogs ...
and the one that I found most interesting for me is the Blog Hero Challenge from Shay, which is already in it's 2nd week ...
I'll prolly not be able to do it every week, but I try to keep up at least in the beginning ;-)
the task is to do a picture/create a scene to some song-lyrics given by Shay ...
In my case it will prolly not always be SL-related ... I think I'll rather play a lot with
gimp with whatever pic or idea I can grab hold on ;-)

week #1 ... 'Crying in the Rain' (a-ha)

"I’ll never let you see
The way my broken heart is hurting me
I got my pride and i know how to hide
All my sorrow and pain
I do my crying in the rain"

week #2 ... 'Don't Fear the Reaper' (Blue Oyster Cult)

"All our times have come
Here but now they're gone
Seasons don't fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain..we can be like they are
Come on baby...don't fear the reaper
Baby take my hand...don't fear the reaper
We'll be able to fly...don't fear the reaper
Baby I'm your man..."

I admit this one is kinda continuing an idea I had for the 'white'-week from the colour challenge ;-P

no more work ...

well ... at least for 2 weeks ;-)
and it looks like I cannot have a longer time off work without getting sick at some point ... lol
on Sunday morning I already started to feel sick during my shift at Sanct ... unfortunately maybe my last reg shift with Hoochie DJ Imdy, as RL will require her to have an earlier bedtime for a while, but I'm sure we can do other shifts together now and then, and I wish her all the best for her school stuff ;-))
So ... sunday was a bad day ... but today I already felt better again ... and was able to finish the first book of several books I want to read during my holidays ...
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time ... by Mark Haddon
A book that made me smile and ,I admit, cry as well ...
and I loved reading it because it gave me the chance to see a story from a quite unusual point of view ...

and I have to apologize to my daughter that I spilled my coffee on her book ;-)

the first week of my holidays will be filled with reading, visiting the BUGA (a garden show) and doing some stuff at home ...
and on Friday we'll leave for our trip to the Dutch ;-)
The weather will prolly not be the best, but who cares, as long as it won't rain as mu
ch as last year on the Wallenpop Festival in Hellevoetsluis on Saturday Aug 6 ...

12 hours of cool music again ;-))
One of the bands I'm looking forward to ... De Stokers

and if you live anywhere near ... hop over and have a look yourself ... and maybe we meet ;-))

52 Colours - #37 - Lemon

o.o ... Lemon ... nothing for me ;-P
so all I got is this snapshot ... actually taken on the day when Luna showed us the Lemon-patch ...
and this old crappy yellow pants, that I had put on for the 'dots & stripes' event at Sanct, is the closes to Lemon
I own ... lol
so better have a look at my Über Cool DJs ... crisco hoochie IMDY on the left and my sweet metalhead ERIKA on the right ... me lubs them ;-))

and now for something completely different ;-)
this tune ... which is totally not my style of music . .. and which was shown t
o me (or rather to hubby) by my (not so lil) daughter ... made my pea-brain rotate ... lol
Marteria feat. Peter Fox ... 'Sekundenschlaf'

lyrics translated into English:


tick tock tick tock time is running out
you are in a hurry cos' the the clock makes you run
don't hold on, don't watch
when sand is trickling through your fingers
tick tock tick tock time is running out

you feel young but life has made you grow old
you realise it at every New Year's Eve
I'm sorry you belong to yesterday's youth
you can't see your birthday cake anymore cos' it's got so many candles on it
you wanna go out into nature cos' you are annoyed by the noise
now you live in a row house cos you are vill(a)-less
wild times are over, eyes are small, glasses big
it will last until it's over
but you aren't as old as you feel but as old as you are
when you're young you think everything is possible
20 is followed by 30, 30 by what troubles you
breathe deeply once and you forget the time
unaware one moment and everything is over
cos' now life passes pretty fast
you count the days till the next round number birthday
you diet and go to the gym
but time heals no wounds cos time went to the dogs

tick tock tick tock time is running out
you are in a hurry cos' the the clock makes you run
don't hold on, don't watch
when sand is trickling through your fingers
cos every river flows to the sea
let go, no reason to fight
everything glitters in the bright light
take along the wave until the wave breaks

wake up from your hibernation
10 years packed colourfully in a blink of an eye
successes at the wall in gilded frames
und suddenly a "Zivi"* shoves you in a wheelchair through the park
when the time comes. your skin shrivels
your body gets laced with little brown spots
don't worry even if you run planelessly through the garden
(even if) you see ghosts and call your daughter Petra Lara suddenly
enjoy your life, dance happily into your grave
look around in Berlin every old bird wears a tramp stamp
I know you have still so much in mind to do
but slowly you start hearing this ticking in your ear

tick tock tick tock time is running out
you are in a hurry cos' the the clock makes you run
don't hold on, don't watch
when sand is trickling through your fingers
cos every river flow to the sea
let go, no reason to fight
everything glitters in the bright light
take along the wave until the wave breaks

back to colours again ... next week won't be easy either ...
Patriarch !!! ... Luna says it's a colour ... well then ;-)

Na, Schnecke !!!

Today I was riding my bike back from the supermarket ...
enjoying Toxic tunes from my shuffle ...
wind blowing thru my hair ...
and a heavy bag on my back ...
(you get the picture?) ...
when suddenly I heard someone shouting

... Na, Schnecke !! ...

it came from a young guy leaning far out of the window of a car that was passing me from behind ...
he was waving at me ... smiling ... and ... whoooosh ... gone
I was so surpised that I just smiled back ...
and then wondered:
Did he say 'Na, Schnecke !!' like 'Hey , crumpet' ... or 'Hey, babe' ?
or was he just making fun of my 'snail pace' ?
Prolly the latter ... *grins*
but hey ... I couldn't be mad about someone with such a cute smile ;-P

Answer with Pix Challenge ... or something like that ...

I found this Challenge on Rudh's blog ... and she found it on Laila's and Laura's flickr

52 Colours - #36 - Celadon

Celadon ... what a beautiful soft relaxing colour ......

When I saw my smexy friend Cats Kornfeld as a mermaid ... erm ... mercat ... in her post last week I remembered the mermaid outfit I once had created for the Deep Sea Event at Sanctuary Rock ... and how good it feels to float around ...
the colours of the tail matched Celadon at least in some spots ... and I grabbed the chance to happily swim and chat with Cats for a bit ... and later relax on those cool rocks that she got on her beautiful little island ...

I usually either spend my time hosting at Sanct, which is rather hectic ... or alone designing nonsense on my land (tho that became quite rare) ... but I guess I should do something like this more often for a change ... and can I do it in RL too, please? ... ;-)

So here are some stills and a lil clip with impressions from a very nice evening ...
ty Cats ... *hugs*

btw ... you find details to Cats' gorgeous Celadon look and a link to 'Amanda Sea - mermaid heaven' on Cats' Celadon post

Next week is supposed to be Lemon ... says Luna ;-)

and with a lil luck I'll catch up with pink or/and ruby before my vacation in 2 weeks ;-)
