Happy early birthday to bikergeek and rubrchick, who'll be advancing a year over the weekend!
Hello to new reader jewishlibrarian!
Hell. Was up til 3:30 AM, all mindracy. Finally had to put myself to bed with Lunesta. This morning: the hand-claw thing and much achyness, especially my legs. Will be doing a muscle-soak bath.
So this is what y'all mean by "winter". Right, then. I'm staying in with a pot of tea.
So what is the Fetish Flea like, anyway? What ought I to expect? Who-all's going? Anyone got crashspace for us? (Ours fell through. Poo.)
Miss Kitty Fantastico is settling in nicely. The other cats, not so much. Jack has totally accepted her, but Max is still doing his hiss-and-mrrrrOOOOOOOWrrr routine, so they're still separated. Adam and Elayna will continue to socialize them in small doses this weekend.
Build your own liquid battery!
Succubus: Mimosa, orange blossom, neroli and bergamot with a drop of sweet clove.
In bottle: Flower and orange.
On me: Orange. Why did I bother trying this on? I do not know. Had to know for sure, I guess.
Hunger: Black narcissus, orange blossoms, and vanilla.
Dude, is it orange blossom day and no one told me? I swear these were a random draw.
In bottle: Oh. That's nice, actually. Thick dark vanilla.
On me: It stays thick dark vanilla. resinous, almost. Interesting.
Bess: Rosemary, orange flower, grape spirit, five rose variants, lemon peel, and mint.
...it is orange flower day.
In bottle: Little grape, little mint, with an aftertouch of rosemary. This is fresh mint.
On me: Light fresh mint atop a jumble of other stuff. It confuses the nose. Ah, there's the fake-rose scent.
Cordelia: lilac, lemon, green tea, wisteria, osmanthus, white cedar, and Chinese musk.
In bottle: Sour. Light and sour.
On me: Way sour. Bleh.
Still in the dish to be tested: Anathema, Athens, Blue Moon '04 (sniffie), The Coiled Serpent, Crossroads, Danse Macabre, Eos, Florence, French Creole, Himerus, Jabberwocky, Jezebel, Khajuraho '06, La Belle Dame Sans Merci, Laudanum, Malediction, Melpomene, Pannychis, Phantom Queen, Psyche, Rapture, Satyr, Shadow, Talvikuu, Tintagel, Wicked. Also some TALs and Arcana's Burlesque, Murder Ballad Blues, and Queen Crossbones, and Alternative Breeding's Eternal Hunger. I need to get my wiki updated, because I swear I've tried some of these BPALs before.
I have one Lab order due any day now, and once I'm done testing the frimps from that, there will be a big swap/sale post.
