Hello to new reader ineffablewombat!
My tummy-ooginess continued through last night, but seems to have receded today. I am cautiously optimistic.
Painwise, it's a normal day. Normal = lying quietly in bed for a bit feeling the ache radiate down my legs, getting out of bed and wincing as I step on cramped feet, et cetera. But it's not too bad today. Pain's not much above baseline. Have had a headache for a few days, but hopefully my new glasses will help alleviate that.
Have to do my usual post office-library-bank route. In addition, my new glasses are ready! I shall pick them up, and I shall bring my camera to the Diesel tonight so someone can take a picture of me. I need a new photo icon.
The site I've been using for mindmapping stuff is up and running! It is called Kayuda, and it is shiny. :) I'm using it for a few Shayara things - planning out the webcomic, posting character backgrounds - and I'm also working on the Geek 500 and, by request, a blog about the places I'm discovering in Boston. I'm also using it to keep track of BPAL reviews. :) Go poke around and have fun, and comment with any thoughts - it's in alpha, and your input is very much desired!
Enceladus may now be on the short list of bodies in the solar system that probably have the water, energy, and chemistry necessary to support Earthlike life. Two recent studies in the journal Icarus hint at "soup" and a "sea" underlying the geologically active south pole of Enceladus.
Itasô Kansei Nenkan Jorô No Fûzoku: Osmanthus, white honey, ti leaf, hibiscus, and sugar cane.
In bottle: Something very sharp and chamical. Osmanthus?
On me: Fortunately, that fades away on my skin, and the sweetness of the honey and sugarcane rise. The hibiscus is true to life, slightly starchy. This is pretty, but not Me.
Burial: The Dark Side of Earth: deep, brooding forest scents, including juniper and patchouli. The scent of upturned cemetary loam mingling with floral offerings to the dead.
In bottle: Juniper!
On me: Juniper and dirt. I like their dirt scent. :) This reminds me of the good parts of the wilderness survival camp I was subjected to.
Rosalind: Dew-covered berries and fresh green grasses with a faint breath of spring flowers.
In bottle: Mostly berries. Fresh and pretty!
On me: Grass and berries. Nice. :)
New Orleans: Sweet honeysuckle and jasmine with a hint of lemon and spice.
In bottle: AAAAAgh jasmine!
On me: AAAAAGH jasmine! *hurls imp away*
