I Don’t Wanna Spend Another Christmas Without You

1 I Don't Wanna Spend Another Christmas Without You 1

I don’t want to light a fire
Unless it will warm your heart
I’m playin no holiday songs
I need you to sing your part
And baby if I could have just one wish come true
I don’t wanna spend one more Christmas without you

Lyrics from “I Don’t Wanna Spend Another Christmas Without You” by ‘N Sync

God help me, I’m quoting ‘N Sync.

I have been trying to do a second post with the hats from JfL Hats for the Jewelry & Accessories Expo since last weekend. Nothing has seemed to work. Today I headed over to Calas Galadhon and ended up at South Farthing. I tried multiple locations and poses, but nothing was striking me as “right.” I was about to give up, and then that bloody song came on the local music stream.

I am not a boy band fan. I am especially not an ‘N Sync fan. But something about that song struck a chord and I was able to create a photo that seemed to capture the spirit of the lyric.

As Grumper said, “No one is immune [to the power of boy bands].”

I hate when he’s right.

On a happier note, Queue Marlowe of Analog Dog has reintroduced separate bangs with her latest release, Bangers. I matched one of the sets with my standby Nicky ponytail and matching hairbase from Amacci to solve the problem inherent to wearing a hat in Second Life. Thank god for hair attachments and bangs!

(But not boy bands.)

      Thanks, Starr 🙂 I was SO excited about the bangs – I’ve been looking for them for ages! And Calas Galadhon is one of my favourite places in SL 🙂

    Yip…I still struggle with hats in sl
    And Im with Starr….loving the bangs too.
    Its a sad thought but suicides are higher around Christmas time. Its a hard place for those who are alone.

      It IS sad. I’m happy I’m someone who enjoys my solitude instead of having it be a trial.

Talk to me! (please? )
