Happy early birthday to badlittlemonkey, who advances a year over the weekend!
Am at about Tuesday level right now.
Washington Democrats, READ THIS!
asim sez: "Only the caucus tomorrow (2/8) counts! The primary does not count, and if you vote in it, the vote does not make a difference.
More WA caucus information for Democrats.
Sorry for the notice, but I'm seeing a lot of confusion, online, about this.
Please forward as you deem wise, and necessary."

You wouldn't expect to learn much about the properties of water by watching a square dance. But think again. Following the caller's lead, the dancers meet, separate, weave, and swing in a perfectly fluid manner.
It turns out that similar coordinated maneuvers—with water molecules taking the places of the dancers—may be responsible for some of water's most puzzling features, an array of recent research findings suggest.
DEEP IN EARTH: Rose geranium, Spanish moss, Irish yew, and graveyard dirt.
In bottle: Moss and dirt. No, this is a *good* thing.
On me: The yew peeks out and waves hi, with a whiff of faraway perfume. Mostly moss. Nice. :)
DEFUTUTA: Olive blossom, honey, smoky vanilla, cinnamon, jasmine, sandalwood, and champaca flower.
In bottle: Light - champaca, olive, sandalwood.
On me: The jasmine is struggling against the rest. We'll see what happens.
FASCINUM: Golden amber, golden musk, litsea cubeba, cedar, and saffron.
In bottle: Golden light.
On me: Cubeb warps the light. Another wait-and-see.
LOVE'S TORMENTS: White sandalwood, neroli, and vetiver.
In bottle: Hi, vetiver!
On me: Hi, vetiver!
Wearing: Sock monkey pjs. I swear I own other pjs. These are the ones Adam laid out for me last night. :)
Reading: Futures from Nature, edited by Henry Gee, and re-reading Much Ado About Nothing.
Writing: Must finish "Hey Elizabeth" and do two ministories to finish out WTD. Must figure out how to do paid writing gig, and get some of *that* done. Must get cracking on Shayara.
Planning Well, writing stuff pretty much takes today over. That, and I should poke artists and see how they're doing on their assignments. *nods*
