Happy birthday to zlana!
Hello to new readers dracosphynx and invisible9fire!
Same. I really need to be doing my stretches more... last night sucked in terms of my leg issues.
Thanks to new sponsor i_descend, we're up to $1,265.97! Yay!
Please sponsor me! Let's get this up to $2,000!
From one of the head honchos at the Boston Rape Crisis Center, in part: "I think that’s *absolutely* incredible – we have had events that involve quite a few more people and do not generate so much so quickly, so thank you for doing this! You’re amazing! It truly means a lot and makes a huge difference to us."
Let's show them how much a single event can generate. :)
And keep an eye on my top post for other cool people to sponsor!
Urgent Laptop-Loan Request
Okay, so rafaela's using Elayna's laptop, slipjig's using excursively's, and mllelaurel's using her own.
This leaves us with two Team Venture Blogathonners who have no laptops (yunatwilight and wired_lizard).
Locals! Does anyone have a laptop they can loan us for 24 hours for a good cause? Y'all are techies, I know you have multiple computers. Please?
Midsummer Night's Dream
They made some... interesting... decisions. :)
* Ten real-life superheroes!
* Voracious jumbo squid invade California!
* Automated musical instruments!
* I could think of a few other uses for this citrus reamer.
It may not look particularly cosmic, but the rock below not only tells us that the Moon was present back in the Archean, but also that it was orbiting the Earth at a much closer distance than it is today.
Lunacy + Good Omens!
Red Moon: Our blend for this Moon mixes traditional lunar oils with the warmth of amber, red musk, and heliotrope, the russet haze of dragon's blood resin, sunflower, and crushed orange peel, with a dusting of summertime herbs: chamomile, rue, elder flower and marigold.
In bottle: Amber, herbs, and dragon's blood.
On me: Sweet light resin.
Allison Gross: Witch-herbs, crushed golden flowers, and a man-made-dragon's surly musk lightened by the scent of the blossoms and unearthly incense that clings to the Faerie Queen's hair. Dragon's blood musk, ambergris, sunflower, chrysanthemum, muguet, and rue, with gingered lily, moonflower, bluebell, peony, nightwort, and white rose.
In bottle: Sharply green - the stems of the flowers rather than the stems themselves.
On me: Yes, very green, very herbal. Refreshing, in this heat! The flowers are way in the background.
Crowley: Infernal musk, red patchouli, lilac cologne, mahogany, lemon rind, oakmoss, leather, and vanilla husk.
In bottle: Woo! Yeah, that's patchouli.
On me: That's not so much patchouli! It's leather that rises first, a well-rounded leather note backed by vanilla, woods, and moss. I get twinges of the musk through it. Lovely!
Aziraphale: Ethereal musk, blonde woods, and dusty Bible accord.
In bottle: Dusty Bible accord is right. This smells like a long-untended used-bookstore shelf.
On me: The woods come out. This is an old book on a fresh-hewn table. Mmmm.
* Get house ready for Team Venture and the Blogathon!
* Write a bit more about why I chose BARCC in particular
* Dinner out tonight
