Strangely alert, despite being up til midnight. My body is obliging me by getting hivey - I have the allergist appointment today. I do have photographs of particularly picturesque outbreaks, since they tend to occur at night. Just have to not treat them and not take an antihistamine. *twitch* At least my appointment is at 10am, not 4pm, y'know?

A note about decant circles: I buy all of my BPAL decants through bookandbroom, who is awesome. She has never screwed up on of my orders, she makes nifty labels, her communication is top-notch, and she gives lots of goodies. So if you were looking for a recommendation, there you have it.
Pumpkin III: Pumpkin, fir needle, pitch, rosemary, and tomato.
In bottle: A pumpkin patch in the forest.
On me: Wow, the fir really leaps up to throttle you. And the tomato. Now it's Christmas at an Italian restaurant.
Pumpkin IV: Pumpkin, black musk, tobacco, myrrh, and clove.
In bottle: Mmmmm. Rich thick resins.
On me: Pumpkin lurks beneath the musky resins. This is yum.
Well. Allergist! Then my long-put-off Target run. Later this afternoon - after her robotics club meeting! - Elayna and I are grabbing some mother/daughter wandering time around Harvard Square. I predict stops at Woolcott & Co for me, Tokyo Kid for her, and Lush for both of us, and dinner at Wagamama.
