Happy birthday to internet_addict!
Hello to new reader suzanna_o!
The usual, brain-drugs-wise, plus some fuzziness around the edges and some coordination-f00. Painwise, just a bit in the shoulder area and a fierce headache. I have Excedrined.

The Young and the Restless is giving a character temporal lobe epilepsy. It'll be interesting to see how they handle that. Anyone watch Y & R and want to give a report on this?
X-Men 3: The abridged script. Hee. :)
I'm not sure who invited me to Mugshot, but it is interesting. (It will no doubt be more interesting when they finish their OSX-compatible stuff. I have four invites, for the interested.
I also have
"How to concentrate on writing"... excellent advice, and I love the cartoon. :)
OMG I am all squee over this one. I am a dork. I'm dorktastic. Proof of this? I am all bouncy and delighted at the very thought of the Large Hadron Collider.
...I'm trying to blurb this, and just can't. Go read the article to understand why the LHC is so freakin' awesome. It's one year away from completion. Mark my words: a year from now, everything changes.
Okay, out of the 12 people who answered the BPAL section on my poll, only three of them are actually swapping with me! Dorks. :P So. I'll get ayalanya's (Masabakes and Three Witches) and elionwyr's (Follow Me Boy (x2)) imps in the mail today, and the rest of you want to wait and see. Correct?
Now on to the testing!
Namaste: Sandalwood, jasmine, rose, patchouli, cedarwood and lemongrass.
In bottle: Very much with the woods, and a hint of patchouli.
On me: Ditto that. Ah, wait - lemon. Nyargh. Lemon Pledge.
Kabuki: Compelling, complex, and utterly enigmatic: a luxuriant, exotic blend of cherry, red musk, and star anise.
In bottle: Cherry like whoa. Anything of theirs that has cherry expresses as solid cherry in the bottle, I've found...
On me: Cherry cherry cherry. Oh, there's the anise! Odd combo.
...Hey! This is cherry Twizzlers! I am Twizzlers! Eat me!
And now musky. Twizzlers + musk? Odd. And not in the good way. :(
Arachne: A gossamer scent, as light as a spider’s footfall, touched with sighing mists: pallid flowers, dusty woods and soft herbs.
In bottle: A light, dusty floral.
On me: Mosses and herbs. Can't identify single notes, alas. But I like it.
If I'm reading the astrological omens correctly, this would be an excellent time for you to apply for a job as a crocodile trainer, audition for a supporting role in a TV soap opera, or give motivational speeches to five-year-olds. For that matter, it wouldn't be outlandish for you to use a chainsaw to create sculptures from dead trees, make a home video of yourself entitled "The Dancing Chef" or "The Wise-Ass Guru," or write a research paper on orca whales and quantum physics. In other words, Pisces, consider trying things you've never considered before. Ask yourself if maybe you possess hidden talents that you haven't even begun to cultivate. Be receptive to the possibility that your destiny is more open-ended than you've ever imagined.
