Happy birthday to my TH-sister tisiphonemoon!
Got bad by the end of last night; seems... mostly okay this morning.
The thing that's really driving me bugfuck is the fatigue. A nap a day, sometimes two, and my ass is still dragging. It's deeply frustrating. Especially when my brain is tired, too, because then I can't write.
Will hopefully be okay today.
Oh, Spooky and I were being Crow Girls... especially to poor liamstliam. :) (For those who wish to add her: her LJname is elionwyr.)
Our names there are Shadesong, Yendi, and NanoFishie, just like here. :)
My parents will be here Thursday through Wednesday, so if you're trying to schedule anything with me, aim for late next week!
Scientists have discovered a large area thousands of square kilometres in extent in the middle of the Atlantic where the Earth’s crust appears to be missing. Instead, the mantle - the deep interior of the Earth, normally covered by crust many kilometres thick - is exposed on the seafloor, 3000m below the surface.
Marine geologist Dr Chris MacLeod, School of Earth, Ocean and Planetary Sciences said: "This discovery is like an open wound on the surface of the Earth. Was the crust never there? Was it once there but then torn away on huge geological faults? If so, then how and why?"
They're going to investigate it. I wanna go. Seriously. I spent quite a bt of yesterday bouncing about this and saying "I wanna go!"
BPAL: I ended up ordering Aries and Ostara; I'm getting imps of Roux-Ga-Roux and Ides of March from a decant circle. Still waiting on the Heroines/Lupercalia decants. One of today's jobs will be putting more unloved BPAL up for sale so I can make a hypothetical Heroines/Lupercalia order. Today, I test a mixed bag of e-tailers...
Arcana Soaps: Persephone's Flowers: As one of the most over-scheduled divine beings, Persephone had to juggle her roles as daughter, wife, goddess, icon of spring, cheerless Queen of Hades and spokesmodel for pomegranate seeds. In her scent, the musky tartness of pomegranate rubs itself all over innocent lily of the valley while black anise hangs back discreetly.
In bottle: I get more lily than anything else.
On me: There's some pomegranate! And anise, not discreet at all. The scents don't *blend*, though, and it's rather sharp.
Auric Blends: Egyptian Goddess: Auric Blends Egyptian Goddess perfume oil is an incomparably soft, delicate musk which is both enchanting and seductive.
In bottle: Barely there!
On me: Yep... a soft, delicate musk. *yawn*
Love Potion Layering Oils: Fresh Greens: The most gorgeous scent of organic freshness, green and watery, clean and naturally sweet, with a hint of powdery musk and darker woods beneath. Encompasses the magical properties of Love, Sex, Power, Protection and Mental Clarity.
In bottle: Yep. Green.
On me: It is indeed a pretty green. Lettuce-y. I may keep this one.
Mandrake Apothecary: Cafe y Cacao: This is hot chocolate with a kick of coffee and cinnamon, a thick and rich atole. Warm sweet comfort, with the dark velvet bitterness of Theobroma cacao balancing deep oily coffee, with a touch of liatris and tonka to impart a softness and tenacity.
In bottle: That's just weird. More tonka than anything else.
On me: Eh. A little bit of spicy hot cocoa. I'm not getting coffee, though. :(
