Happy early birthday to lightgatherer, xhollydayx, and ineffabelle, who advance a year over the weekend!

State of the 'song
Surprisingly okay, given today's early wakeup call.

Is en route! 10am-1:30pm flight, BOS-MCO.

Ten days. Will miss her.

"I've been gone for three weeks before, Mommy."
"I didn't like that either!"

Yes, I know. College looms.

Apparently I still look youngish.
TSA to Elayna: "How old are you?"
Elayna: "Sixteen."
TSA to Elayna: "Wow, you're the only sixteen-year-old I've seen today who looks younger than her age!"
She motions for my ID and gate pass, and I hand them over. She scans them.
TSA to me: "1974?!?"
Me: "Yep!"
TSA: "You guys are eating organic or something."

BPAL Reviews
A Dense and Frightful Darkness: black musk, vetiver, myrrh, opoponax, hemp, crushed sage, oakmoss, and tobacco.
In bottle: Dark yumminess. I'm mostly getting the vetiver and moss.
On me: Huh! Something here is suddenly very sharp, and I don't know what. Almost alcohol-perfumey.

A Dreary Night of November: bone-white sandalwood, ink-black vetiver, Spanish moss, bitter clove, beeswax, and lotus root.
In bottle: Clear mossiness with the candy pop of lotus.
On me: The moss deepens, and the clove rises up from beneath it. There's the sandalwood, too. Yeah, this one's nommy.

Friday Memage
Wearing: Grey sweater, jeans, stripey socks with owls on them, though I'm about to shower and change.
Reading: Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner.
Writing: Cicatrix and the occasional burst of poetry.
Knitting: Finishing my long-dormant scarf sometime this weekend (it got set aside for holiday knitting), I think/hope.
Planning: Writing today; I still don't know about tonight. I don't know about anything going on tomorrow, so if you do, let me know? I'm not used to being around here this time of year! Going to a party on Sunday.
