Odin's Day

Okay hi! I am at my computer! I will type things to you.

State of the 'Song
Last night was the first night I spent alone since sindrian's return. It was also the first night in some time when I woke up at 3am. Coincidence? I think not. Tried to go back to sleep, which did not happen til around 6:30, I think. >.< Am awake now.

Week/End Recap
is coming, hopefully today but possibly not. My to-do list for today is pretty substantial, and I have a lot of week/end stuff to talk about!

Link Soup
* Poem of the day
* wirewalking has a Etsy store for her caramels now! All proceeds go to offset $30,000 worth of water damage to her house. They are gluten-free, vegan, and they're not soy-free so I haven't eaten them, but when I watch other people eat them? They look like Kaylee eating a strawberry. Get you some.
* Beatiful photographs of exploded flowers.
* Mysterious and awesome paper sculptures appearing in libraries.

Daily Science
Astronomers using NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) have captured rare data of a flaring black hole, revealing new details about these powerful objects and their blazing jets.

BPAL Reviews
Gnome: An explosive blend of effervescent golden ginger and black peppercorn with sarsaparilla, gurjum balsam, nutmeg, gear lubricant, and smoke.
In bottle: Slightly soapy? I'm getting the sarsaparilla most.
On me: Yeah no. Cleaning products. Ugh. There is lemon up in here!

Half-Elf: White sandalwood, beeswax, white tea leaf, oud, and a hint of sophisticated urban musk.
In bottle: Very light and delicate; the notes mingle well, nothing's jumping out.
On me: Again, very light, very delicate. There's not much there there.

Orc: Field grey courgette musk, roughly cured leather, and vetiver.
In bottle: OH HAI LEATHER and then a sweetness, which must be the musk interacting with the vetiver.
On me: The sweet musk sort of takes over the leather and leaves it as a base. Still very much there. I think I may love this. Will try it again when not being blasted with the lemon death of Gnome.

Showering off this damn Gnome. (That's not a sentence you hear every day.) Otherwise I have some writer stuff, some chatelaine stuff, some deadline knitting, and a Survivor Speakers Bureau peer supe meeting tonight, after which I see sindrian!
