Happy birthday to servermonkey, solcita, and water_childe!
Congratulations to newlyweds rosif3r and water_childe!
I am so freaking exhausted. I need to remember that I no longer have the stamina for weekends like this.
Weekend in review
Shadesongcon: the wiki version.
I'm not the only one launching something webcomicish this week - check out My Name Is Might Have Been,by theferrett and catvalente!
This was my gift to me. :)
And - pictures of the jewel-queen pieces here!
* Black Fungus Found in Chernobyl Eats Harmful Radiation

A gene that blocks the HIV virus and the onset of AIDS has been discovered by a research group at the University of Alberta. !!!
Moon of Ice: Frost-crusted winter flowers, white pine, eucalyptus, and traditional lunar oils.
In bottle: There is something weirdly citrusy at play.
On me: Yep. Citrusy. Uck.
Earth Rat: A new year's blessing! Peony, China's national flower, with bamboo for flexibility, plum blossom for perseverance, courage, and hope, tangerine for wealth, lychee for strong family relationships and peace in the home, orange for happiness, pine resin for constancy, golden kumquat and quince for prosperity, narcissus and King mandarin for good fortune, coconut for longevity, and candied melon for good health, with a splash of blazing red of dragon's blood... to help you scare away the rampaging Nian.
In bottle: OH HAI. I PUT FR00T SALAD IN UR BPALZ.
On me: More subtle than it is in the bottle. Sweet melon and lychee.
Anactoria: The scent of the throes of violent passion: entangled limbs, teeth on flesh, furiously grasping hands, the taste of blood and sweat. Golden amber, white honey, red currant, daemonorops, kush, and Arabian musk.
In bottle: Mmmm. Kush, musk,amber.
On me: Same. *hopes for the currant and honey*
Valentine of Rome: Ecclesiastical incense, Roman flora, and the fruits of martyrdom: cypress, olive blossom, frankincense, myrrh, and blood accord.
In bottle: ...that's a weird combo. Twiggy-herbal.
On me: It works, though.

* Write tomorrow's Shayara
