Happy birthday to emilytheslayer!
Hello to new readers botia, cathouse_blues, lacey, and lyssabard, and returning reader gladstone!
Moderate pain day yesterday. Today feels mild-to-moderate.
It's definitely an adhesive allergy rather than a latex allergy. I get it from electrodes, medical tape, and now bandaids.
For the first time since we moved here, there is snow on the ground! There's not *much* of it, mind you. But it is definitely there. :)
Online education directory!
Anyone live in or near Burbank and free on Feb. 10 and wanna do a thing for me?
It is the nano-equivalent of seeing the first stone disc roll down a prehistoric hill: German and French scientists have, for the first time, observed a nanoscopic wheel rolling over a flat surface.
Bonus: Jewelry made with molecules. Okay, really all jewelry is made with molecules. But this is made to resemble molecules.
The Music of Erich Zahn: A ghoulish and tortured scent, suffused with the blackness of space illimitable: ajowan, vetiver, black musk, opoponax, mimosa, and tamarind.
In bottle: Huh. Weird. What does that remind me of?
On me: Indian restaurants. *looks up unfamiliar stuff* Ajowan. That's got to be it. I smell like an Indian restaurant. It's a foody smell, but savory, not sweet. I quite like it. :)
High John the Conqueror: No scent description.
In bottle: Sweet and golden.
On me: Barely there. Soft and yellowgreen.
Kumiho: A sharp, biting blend of crisp white tea and ginger.
In bottle: Hm. Is that citrus?
On me: Yep. Someone put lemon in the tea. *gags*
Odin: His scent is dry elm bark, amaranth, warrior’s musk, and Odin’s Nine Herbs of Power.
In bottle: Sharp. I smell the elm, definitely.
On me: Mostly elm. Bits of something herbal. Nice. :)
Today: Writing, working; trip into town to mail stuff and drop off library books; warm bath?; Diesel.
Tomorrow: Doctor at 10:15; trip to Hopkinton with yunatwilight and wired_lizard to get new kittygirl; cuddling and anime!
Thursday: writing, working; coffee with jadasc
