Tew's Day

Hello to new readers fastfwd and puchuupoet!

Brain drugs: Haven't taken them yet today, as I need my focus to drive to the neurologist. Yes, I finally have an appointment, and I will be pressing for a new medication!

Fibro: Bad pain days. I see my primary care doc tomorrow, and I'll ask her about upping the Cymbalta to a normal-person-sized dose or trying something else.

Daily Science
Grand Rounds, a medblog carnival.

Sea spiders!

Daily BPAL

Roadhouse: Truck stop sleaze. Weedy dandelion and hops with a whiff of tobacco and hemp and a swirl of booziness.

In bottle: 90% dandelion, with something I can't identify. Maybe the hops?

On me: Wow, that's really green. It's pretty much an unrelieved pungent green. I'm not scrubbing it off, but I can't see myself wearing it.

Faustus: An infusion of incalculable power and irresistible temptation. Truly an exercise in megalomania and self-gratification: frankincense and cinnamon, darkened by violet.

In bottle: A dark smell. Must be the frankincense. (If that's frankincense, it's something else in Carceri that I don't like. Hm.)

On me: Mmm. Cinnamon on top of that darkness. Wending in and out, actually; what's on top varies. I'm not getting any floral, which is fine by me. Something tasty-but-not-foody.

Gaueko: Blackened sandalwood and misty lavender, with curling wisps of smoky tobacco, nag champa, and labdanum.

In bottle: Filthy hippie + lavender.

On me: Still filthy hippie. I don't like nag champa. It's head-shop trendy and always reminds me of a pompous ex-boyfriend. And I'm not getting anything but nag champa here. Pass.

Cathode: A negatively charged scent. Ambergris, Spanish Moss, oakmoss and three electric mints.

In bottle: Smells more like ozone, with a faint aftersmell of mint, slightly tempered by Spanish moss.

On me: Oh, this is nice; this is a crisp day spent reading under a tree overhung with lots of Spanish moss. I love Spanish moss - the look and the texture. Mmm. I like Cathode.

pixelmonster, you totally need to smell Cathode when you come over to stick 50 needles in my back. (Next week for that, maybe?)
