Cautious optimism.

Busted Wonder!
charitypomaybo has finished the transcendent Busted Wonder! *throws confetti* Wonderful stuff. Read all about it here. And go read the comic!

Go shop!
The Norilana Books non-sale sale!

I owe norilana a review on her lush and lovely The Duke in his Castle. Short version: It's wonderful. Long version will follow, hopefully this week.

Why the Diet Coke + Mentos reaction happens.

Daily BPAL

Nyx: Night-blooming jasmine, warmed by myrrh, lifted by the promise of rose.
In bottle: The fetid stench of jasmine.
On me:

Wings of Azrael: Warm myrrh swirled with a bittersweet blend of violet, Lily of the Valley, juniper, cypess and cajeput.
In bottle: Floral first, then juniper, then lovely cypress.
On me: Yep,light floral spiked with juniper and grounded by cypress and myrrh.

Bluebeard: A scent swirling with dark rage, unbridled jealousy, and murderous intent. Violet, lavender, white musk, and vetiver.
In bottle: There's... something almost lychee-ish in there. Weird. Definitely lavender, too.
On me: White musk + vetiver = lychee? So peculiar.

Hades: A dark, palpably sacred chthonic blend: black narcissus and cypress, stephanotis, opoponax, labdanum, onycha and ambergris.
In bottle: Labdanum and ambergris,light resin.
On me: Floral resin meh.

* emilytheslayer is swinging by to drop off one of her Blogathon donations (hand-knitted baby socks!).
* Rheumatologist appointment. Feh.
* Backyard Shakespeare! I love that this is what my daughter's friends do for the summer. Last year was The Tempest; this year it's Much Ado About Nothing.
* If I have energy, a friend's birthday dinner. The rheumatologist is taxing, and not just emotionally; he pokes all of my tender points to see how much they hurt. (Answer: a lot, and a lot more after The Poking.) The bursitis in my hips is the worst. The cat walking over my hip sets that off. Direct hard pressure won't be nice.
