Happy birthday to correspondguy!
The usual, brain-drug-wise. Plus wordfumbly. Which was also bugging me a little in last night's voicepost, but not as much as right now. Fibro-wise, I had a "my everything hurts" day yesterday, and that's continued on through today; I overdid this weekend.
Today is the day we start instituting discipline for stuff like not bringing her homework-stuff home, not leaving supplies in her locker so she can bring in more supplies, and going back to bed after the alarm and not waking me up. Tune in later, kids, to see if Elayna loses her video-game time today!
Other Elayna note - she's looking crazy fashionable today. It's freaking me out. Teenager, man.
Dark Matter exists.
The math and physics of juggling. (This one's for slipjig and montykins!)
Seance: A mysterious, enigmatic blend of dry, mellow rosewood, crushed rose leaf and the slightest touch of warm hazel.
In bottle: Must be the hazel, because it's not woody or rosy.
On me: This is my perfect rose. As noted yesterday, it's apparently the rose leaf that smells like real rose on me. Fascinating! I get a little bit of the wood beneath crushed garden roses. Very pretty. But pretty in a way this tomboy likes.
Devil's Night: This is the scent of autumn night, fires in the distance, with a touch of boozy swoon, playful sugar and thuggish musk.
In bottle: Autumn in a bottle. How does she *do* that? It's autumn air, yes, with fires in the distance, the smell of turning leaves in there as well...
On me: There's a bit of the booziness, but not the chemical generic alchohol that turned on me in Jazz Funeral. This is rich and dark and swirly. I love this, and will be getting a bottle if she re-releases it this Halloween.
Miskatonic University: The scent of Irish coffee, dusty tomes and polished oakwood halls.
In bottle: Predominantly Irish coffee, with a touch of the pages of those dusty tomes.
On me: Almost purely Irish coffee, with book-smell behind it. The wood only barely peeks out. Curiously, Elayna says it smells like cookies on her.
Harvest Moon 2006: This Harvest Moon oil is a merging of autumnal scents from all over the globe: chrysanthemum, pomegranate, cane sugar and dusty wheat, sorghum, green tea leaf, rice flower and rice milk, Russian sage, bamboo shoot, elderberry, black cherry, wild plum, red haw, hazelnut, red apple and shagbark hickory.
(I wonder if Beth ever gets frustrated that we don't pick up on *all* of the things she's put in there.)
In bottle: Apple and pomegranate, berry and plum, with a backsplash of the wheat and sorghum. When I first got this and gave it my first sniff, I leaned back in my chair, blissed out, and Adam said "Do you need a minute alone with that?"
On me: All that and more. You'd think it would smell overly busy; it doesn't. It blends into a lovely autumn fruit mix, with that wheaty background... little bit of the sage making an appearance. Haystacks. The hazelnut is *not* showing up, thank goodness; I hate hazelnut and was afraid it would overpower the blend. It does not, so yay. :) The fruit is fading to the midground, with the wheaty and herby smells in the foreground. Beautiful autumn scent.
