Ahh, you can't go home again? 
No surprise really.
Only a very few find the way,

In a world nearly wiped from existence, 
where daily survival and necessities are the main concerns.
There's rarely much happiness to be had here, 
moments of pure laughter and enjoyment are few and far between,
the small treats and pleasures are nearly all but gone.
Life is just survival.

So imagine the feelings at the find of a long lost, solar run deep freeze.
To walk into that brisk cool air from the new desert sun, 
to discover the sights of well kept ice creams and frozen sweets. 
In our excitement we shared one of the closest containers -
a cold we haven't felt on our tongues in what seems like a life time, 
and the sweetness that danced over our taste buds kept us both in a quiet
moment of pure bliss.

Then add to that the adult satisfaction in discovering tucked away
in the largest office, under piles of dust covered papers and empty 
treat boxes an untapped keg and a few boxes of wine!
Tonight - our now small city will remember the simpler pleasures, 
some children will experience sweets they've never even known. 

Lots going on, and I'm sorry some you'll need to hurry to catch! But all of this loveliness is so very worth it. Death Rocker Bettie Crocker released her new Zipper Pants in her classic Creature Feature print and her new Lulu Mini belt skirt in Red Leather at the current round of Suicide Dollz, along with Zombie Suicides new Witchery Ring Set. So catch those before the round switches this weekend! As a matter of fact, just go right now! I'll wait - it's worth it!

Okay, you back now? See all of the cuteness there?! I know, right!
Get your goodies? Okay, good. Told you it was worth it!

And Cute Poison is at the OMGacha Fair with her new adorable Skull Rings along with Obscure's new Riders Helmets. Random Matter is at the Manga Fair with some buttons you'll want all over! And Pomposity released a color change spikey Hubby Beater Baseball Bat just for the fun of it! So much lovelies all over the grid.

Nothing feels better then finally getting home,
kicking off the shoes,
stripping out of the work clothes, 
and most especially releasing the clasp that has held tight
around you all day and letting the girls be free.
