Happy birthday to brokensiren!
I'm managing. Bumping up on the Lyrica today, for the final time; let's home that this helps control the seizures! It certainly isn't helping the pain. I have an appointment with my primary care doc in two weeks... may try to see her earlier, to get up to the standard dosage on the Cymbalta.
I'm with Alice on this one.
Opportunity to do good

Having developed an “iconic” sonification system, scientists at SSL are getting ready to analyze data from a pair of spacecraft, called STEREO A & B, that will study coronal mass ejections and solar winds. Each category of data collected by STEREO (like different energies of solar particles, or the rate at which they hit a detector) is assigned a sound quality (like a note on the scale, or degree of volume), with each instance of a particular data point producing its respective sound quality.
Chrysanthemum Moom: ...Her scent is bewitching, almost intoxicating: a sensual incense of crushed mums, red ginger, and pulsing musk....the air is thick with leaden brown opium smoke that hangs thickly over a seductive mixture of red musk, body-warmed perfume, and hypnotic Eastern flowers...
In bottle: Sweet skin musk, a bit of ginger, musky floral.
On me: There is something about this that reminds me so strongly of The Killing Game. Rhyssa's staircase, dark scarred wood twisting upward, her dolls lining the steps, their eyes and mouths sewn shut.
I realize that this descriptions helps none of you. But I'm not getting notes here, I'm getting the visual.
F5: Aloe, white musk, lime peel, fresh mint, seaspray, verbena and green tea.
In bottle: Citrus hell + aloe
On me: Citrus drying down to mostly seaspray, with mint and aloe. It's a good scent, but I don't think I'd ever find myself reaching for it.
F5 is up for swap! This is a full 5ml. In exchange, I'd prefer a bottle of Pink Phoenix, Spooky (yes, I know I'm dreaming), or Dragon's Blood (+ imps). Why? Elayna's enrolled in the forum's Package Pixie swap, and those are her swappee's favorites. :)
If you don't have any of that, I'll never turn down stuff on my wishlist.
