Tew's Day

Happy birthday to angryvixen!

Bad pain day. Worst in a while. Muscles are *starting* to unclench now, but last night I had bad neck/shoulder/arm/back stuff, and this "morning" (didn't get to sleep til 4, slept til 1) everything was screaming.

That and sleep-dep will keep me from Diesel tonight; I'll be home with a book.

Okay, I'm up with Avon, and I have to call about Tupperware; they do online sales, too. Any other recommendations?

And yes, I have to do craft stuff. *nods*

Daily BPAL
Updated my wiki and swap page last night. Need to do the big inventory so I can weed out things I don't use and things I have an unnecessary excess off. Then - sale!

For those of you who've been interested in getting started with BPAL, but have been overwhelmed - here's a great beginner's guide!

Jezebel: A gloriously decadent blend of honey, roses, orange blossom and sandalwood.

In bottle: Honey, with an afterscent of orange blossom-then-honey.

On me: Honey, with chemical rose smell. And orange-scented cleaning product smell. Dammit!

Shadow: A subtly menacing blend of lemon verbena, white sandalwood and cedar, dimmed by droplets of the darkest patchouli.

In bottle: Lemon Pledge in a closet full of cedar hangers.

On me: Yep. Cleaning wood with Pledge.

La Belle Dame Sans Merci: The name translates to "the beautiful woman without mercy", and is the title of an old French court poem that was later revamped by John Keats. A bewitching, seductive scent, rife with mystery and foreboding.

In bottle: Floral and odd.

On me: Roses.

Athens: A reformulation and modernization of a true Classical Greek perfume, myrrhine: voluptuous myrrh, golden honey, red wine, and sweet flowers.

In bottle: Thick honey and wine.

On me: In a reformation of tequila tradition (lime-chug-salt), this feels like I've just downed a shot of wildflower honey, a gulp of deep red wine, and taken a whiff of a little box full of amber. I like it. :)
