Hello to new readers babymonkey, katspaw156, lady_guenievre, and whyelaborate!
Pretty exhausted all day yesterday; went to bed around 9:30 and am henceforth up way too early.
I cleaned my office Saturday! Where cleaning also = finding a cheap cream-and-gold dresser on CraigsList,moving one of my bookcases, and installing said dresser by my desk to hold office supplies. (My desk has no drawers.) Reduces clutter and brightens the room-I no longer feel like I'm typing in a cave. Also gives me room to hang more art. ElfQuest or haikujaguar or Busted Wonder? I dooon't know.
Will be responding to everyone's comments when I'm in safe headspace for it. *nod*
lightcastle and eustaciavye and I have been kicking around the idea of a writing group for ages. We need to get off our asses. I'm free the weekend after this one. Who's interested?
* I need this sofa, of course.
* 50% off all in-stock and forthcoming books at NightShade!
* Vintage robots!
If a black hole eats a book, what happens to the information? The latest work from a team of physicists says that in the distant future, the black hole eventually spits out the book's full contents. Even a black hole can't destroy information.
Update like whoa. *boggles*
So let's catch up on Steampunks.
The Antikythera Mechanism: Teakwood, oak, black vanilla, and tobacco.
In bottle: Woods and black vanilla.
On me: The vanilla gets sweeter. Stillnot getting much in the way of tobacco - but it's yummy.
The Coil: Ozone, eucalyptus and mint with purple orchid, passionflower, white ginger, and purple lotus.
In bottle: Sinus-clearing ozone and eucalyptus, tempered with mint.
On me: See above. The floral come out, but not enough to drown the rest.
Galvanic Goggles: Metallic notes with Indian musk, tobacco flower, and African balsam.
In bottle: Indian musk all the way!
On me: Maybe some metal way at the back, but the musk dominates. Ah, there's the balsam.
No.93 Engine: Balm of Gilead, benzoin, frankincense, balsam of peru, beeswax, saffron, galbanum, calamus, hyssop, mastic, lemon balm, and white sage.
In bottle: The benzoin blocks the saffron, which waves from the background.
On me: Mmm. Balsam, galbanum, beeswax, and saffron.
One more post before getting down to work. Review, critique (three days til WisCon travel!), walk to library and CVS, and do book planning.
