Thor's Day

Hello to new readers crazybone and marmota!

Not too terribly much sleep last night. *sigh* But pain levels are mild to moderate.

I have said that I will bring a chart of the typical fibromyalgia tender/trigger points and a Sharpie to the next playparty I attend, and have someone draw the international "no" symbol on me in the appropriate places, so people know where not to hit. :) My butt can take a beating. But please not right *under* my butt or right *over* it...

Damn the Man! Save the Empire Pandemonium!
Pandemonium Books is having major financial issues; they're selling T-shirts to try to keep from going under.

This is a great store, one of the last big indie SF/F stores. And it's a great venue, too - catvalente and s00j did their reading/concert of The Orphan's Tales: In the Night Garden/For the Girl in the Garden there. It was awesome. :)

So buy a shirt. And shop there instead of Borders or B & N. And tell your friends!

Daily Science
In a sub-atomic light show that has had quantum physicists shaking their heads in wonder, US scientists have made a tiny pulse of light stop, jump from one group of atoms to another and then continue on its merry way.

When do I get my teleporter?

Daily BPAL
Okay, Boston-area BPALers - looks like we're having a Meet & Sniff at my place at 1 PM on Sunday. Bring snacks, if you'd like!

CORAL SNAKE: Snake Oil with blood orange, red apple, lemon peel, plumeria, and gardenia.

In bottle: Apple! :)

On me: Apple! The flowers stay muted in the background. This is a spring-into-summer scent.

COTTONMOUTH: Snake Oil with linden blossom, calla lily, passion flower, and narcissus.

In bottle: It doesn't smell floral so much as it smells... clear.

On me: Passionflower. Which is, visually, my favorite flower. I'd barely remembered its scent - I haven't smelled them since I was a teenager. This is clear and fresh, spiralling stems and curling stamens, crisp and sweet.

DEATH ADDER: Snake Oil with vetiver, black coconut, vanilla, and opoponax.

In bottle: Hello vetiver!

On me: Vetiver. And opoponax. I hope the coconut and vanilla come out... hm. This one's really faint.

GREEN TREE VIPER: Snake Oil with four mints, bergamot, and green tea.

In bottle: Yep. That's mint tea.

On me: Yep. That's mint tea. This is one I may hang on to for novelty purposes, like Lick It.
