Blech. Went to bed last night feeling sick to my stomach, and woke up much the same. Will be home-based today. Pain and stiffness levels tolerable, though.

Daily Science
That dogs descended from wolves is commonly accepted. So is the theory that this evolution took about 14,000 years.

Or did it? Crockford suggests the metamorphosis could have taken place over the span of a single human life -- between 20 and 40 years.

Daily BPAL

Aries: Cardinal fire: the essence of identity.
Black pepper, honeysuckle, opoponax, dragon’s blood, and wild ginger.

In bottle: All pepper and opoponax!

On me: Oooh, the ginger comes out and mingles with the pepper. Yummyspicy, grounded by the dragon's blood...

Ostara: Our springtime celebratory perfume is crafted with orris root, bergamot, frankincense, daffodil, orange pulp, attar of rose, jonquil, strawberry leaf, benzoin, violet leaf, copal, honey cakes, sweet cream, and the blossoms of springtime.

In bottle: Hm! Light green.

On me: Something in here smells starchy and artificial to me. :(

Delirium: Non compos mentis, indeed! A contrary, conflicted scent, bubbling with merry madness. Contains apple, rose, and lemon.

In bottle: Rose and lemon battle for dominance.

On me: Still battling. Ugh.

Danse Macabre: An allegorical expression of the ineffable, indisputable triumph of death, generally expressed in medieval artwork as a violin or flute-wielding skeleton leading a procession of dancers to their graves. Black cypress with oakmoss, frankincense, oude, and a sliver of toasted hazelnut.

In bottle: Frankincense, with the tiniest edge of moss.

On me: Hey, there's the moss! And the cypress. Mmmm, that's dark and woody and nice. I go lie down.
