Happy birthday to the Scholar!
Oh, hell. I'm a mess. Just dialed up on the Lyrica last night. Am very nauseous, dizzy, shaky, and bone-deep fatigued, and am going back to bed soon as Miss Kid gets on the bus. Had difficulty sleeping last night due to pain level, but I'm not calling the doctors just yet because I'm not yet at the therapeutic level for Lyrica.
...oh, hell, one of the meds they're going to be crashing me off next week = a pain med in addition to a seizure med. Crap.
Stay begins September 6. A week from today. I'll likely post a notice at the top of my journal to remind people while I'm there, as I may get kinda incoherent. Well, more than usual.
I get to meet fiddle_dragon today! We've been reading each other for four years now. Wow. And never met.
Behold the similarity between a cluster of galaxies and a slice of brain. Seriously.
(I have sold some suits, and now have money for the update. Which is a different kind of agony from not having money, as I now have buyer's paralysis.)
Shango: The Master of Lightning’s ofrenda contains red apples, banana, chili pepper, coconut, pineapple, pomegranate and sugar cane.
In bottle: Rum and banana, mostly.
On me: Very fruity to start with, then the coconut comes out and balances it. Oh, and there's the sugarcane. This is my third of the Orisha scents, and they are unfailingly rich and heady and complex; I want to collect them all, and want a bottle of Yemaya for sure. Mmm, there comes some more banana. I get the feeling that this one will be shifting all day. It isn't really me... but I may hoard it just because I want all of the Orishas!
Jolly Roger: Sea spray with an undercurrent of leather, Bay Rum, and salty, dry woods.
In bottle: Just saltwater.
On me: Mmmm, nice. Saltwater with the tiniest hint of Bay Rum. I'm not getting leather or woods yet, but give me time.
