This is My Pig Nose
A funny perfume story: I've learned not to use my right wrist when reviewing perfumes.
All day, it sits on my glow-in-the-dark pig rest,† and the pig rest has taken on all my perfumes. So my right wrist smells entirely different from my left wrist, and not at all like the perfume I put on that morning.
[SUMMARY: I'm making my own perfume.]
A funny knitting story: I've only knit one sweater before‡ and it was top-down and seamless, so the Vampirates sweater with set-in sleeves is new territory.
This was never more obvious than when I knit up the first sleeve and tried to figure out how it would fit into the armhole and realised§ I hadn't knit the shoulder cap.
I had to un-bindoff and finish the thing properly.
[SUMMARY: When dorks knit sweaters.]
A funny book story: I came back from the bathroom¶ at 4:00 this morning to find Cat for Scale lovingly licking the edges of the pages of the second Vampirate book. I wash my hands before I read it,# so I don't think there's residual food anywhere.
Weird little cat.
[SUMMARY: Weird little household.]
I believe that covers that covers all the major hobbies. Except drinking.††
We're clear for the day -- I'm going to go wash my pig.
Clair de Musc - Serge Lutens (edp)
Marin says: Perfume. Kind of non-descript and remarkable only in that it had no alcohol or aldehyde edge and an undefinable sweet smell.
I've had conversation recently that musk may not be quite the animal/sexual smell I thought it was -- everything I've smelled that says musk lately seems to be sweet like baby powder. Not my cup of tea.
The Perfumed Court says: A floral-woody-musk fragrance with notes of delicate orange blossom and white iris from Tuscany.
Hans says: Definitely soapy, but a particular soap... *sniff*
Dove lotion bar.††
†FOOTNOTE (crossed): With 45 hearts!
‡FOOTNOTE (double-crossed): Green Gable.
§FOOTNOTE (swerved): Only two days later!
¶FOOTNOTE (paragraphed): That damned pee-every-time-I-roll-over thing.
#FOOTNOTE (pounded): It is, technically, someone else's book. And he hasn't even seen it yet, so I have to keep it neat and clean.
††FOOTNOTE (ddouble-ccrossed): I think I will now have a drink.
‡‡FOOTNOTE (doubble-crossssed): I actually don't have a footnote. Just wanted to say hey to Lyda, who was worried when there were no footnotes yesterday. I know she has a system and everything.
