Tew's Day

Happy birthday to ian_gunn!

Hello to new reader whats_da_bizz!

Medical
The body is not happy. Am hoping that stretches will help. This weather certainly isn't helping.

I am well enough to go to Diesel, though.

Link Soup
* HISTORY’S GREATEST MINDS TACKLE SCIENCE’S GREATEST UNSOLVED MYSTERIES. This is very giggle-inducing.

* Making stuff out of cassette tapes. Hm. Gives me a few ideas...

* Speaking of making things out of other things...

* Philadelphia's murals.

* Free Tim Pratt story!


Daily Science
A study by doctors in Hong Kong has concluded that epilepsy can be induced by the Chinese tile game of mahjong.

Daily BPAL


The Arrival at the Sabbath and Homage to the Devil, Antoine-François de Saint-Aubert.
Bourbon vanilla, benzoin, caramel, Mysore sandalwood, aged black patchouli, carnation, and iris florentina.

In bottle: Oh, the caramel is strong in this one. As I move the wand away, I swear I smell tobacco.

On me: The caramel blends in here, swirling with vanilla, on a base of sandalwood. Is it the aged patchouli that puts me in mind of tobacco? Hm. I like. :)

The Sailor's Den, Félicien Rops.
Orris, bay rum, palm, coconut meat, oak wood, tobacco, linen, blue lilac, and leather.

In bottle: Dry orris and faint florals.

On me: Lilac and linen. Bit of palm. No leather, coconut, or rum! :(

Death and Life Completed, Gustav Klimt.
Grey amber, carnation, lemon balm, hydrangea, Chinese peony, white sandalwood, cypress, juniper, cedar, hibiscus, and African daisy.

In bottle: Very clean.

On me: Very clean. Not quite Lemon Pledge, but the lemon balm is wiping away all trace of the other notes here. :(

Fox Fires on New Year's Eve at the Garment Nettle Tree at Oji, Hiroshige.
Weeping cherry, watery bamboo pulp, nettle tree bark, green tea incense, soft musk, rice wine, and Japanese tree lilac.

In bottle: Cherry, bark, green tea.

On me: Cherry. Faint cherry.


Plans
* That Target visit?
* Two nuggets for the Shayara website
* Two flashfics to make up Blogathon shortfall
* Continue office cleanup
* Get remaining stuff for Switch Witch package
* Go to Diesel! :)
