Happy birthday to aaronace, nihilistic_kid, and xiphias!
Hello to returning reader adrian_turtle!
Doing okay. *crosses fingers*
Elayna and I are doing an urban exploration day today, wandering around Central Square, then Davis Square, ending up at Diesel. So we won't need a ride *there*. A ride *back*, though, would be most appreciated. We'd want to leave no later than 9:30. Let me know before noon if possible!
Playing video games appears to help surgeons with skills that truly count: how well they operate using a precise technique, a study said on Monday.
There was a strong correlation between video game skills and a surgeon's capabilities performing laparoscopic surgery in the study published in the February issue of Archives of Surgery.
I think we have a career for Elayna.
New scent lockets - and BPAL soap! I have way too much soap right now (Propaganda, Bathed & Infused, Squeaky Queen, et cetera), so I can wait on soap, and I'm not terribly interested in scent lockets. But I know some of you are.
Already reviewed the Ecstasy of Infatuation...
The Ecstasy of Passion: Bourbon vanilla, red musk, galbanum, ambergris, sweet clove, petitgrain, and golden amber.
In bottle: Dark vanilla musk.
On me: Mmmm. This is what I thought Trick #2 would smell like! Luscious clovey red musk, resinous, sweet. I hope I get a bottle of this.
The Ecstasy of True Love: Patchouli, carnation, peach blossom, frankincense, honeysuckle, and Spanish mandarin.
In bottle: Patchouli and sharpness.
On me: *gags on peach*
Spanked: Sado-masochistic holiday cheer: whip leather, cardamom, patchouli and bourbon
In bottle: *falls over, twitching* Oh, man. Orgasm in an imp. Rich soft dark leather and *cardamom*...
On me: Oh holy cow this is delicious. I want to *roll* in this stuff. The patchouli gives the leather more depth; the bourbon backs the cardamom. The whole thing makes me go yes-Sir-please-Sir...
Himerus: The God of Sexual Desire, Longing and Yearning; an attendant of Eros and Aphrodite. A passion-rousing blend of juniper, sandalwood, rosewood, red musk, orchid, bergamot and lilac.
In bottle: Mostly juniper and sandalwood, with faint swirls of floral.
On me: On me: The same. I'm going to have to try this some day when I'm not distracted by OMG Spanked. Because I don't want to smell anything but that.
