wisdomeagle: bottle of purple liquid with a pipe floating in it, text "bpal!" (perfume)
I may have purchased 6 months of paid time on dreamwidth so I could upload a perfume icon and start using a perfume tag.



Under the cut, mostly for my records, all the perfumes I have tried to date

pretties! )

My favorite by far of all the things I've smelled is Penitence by BPAL. In some ways because I am a person of simple tastes. Incense is one of my favorite scents because it makes me think of church, and especially of anointing oils. Penitence is described as "a blend of pure, pious frankincense and graceful myrrh," and it does what it says on the tin.

Most of the oils I've tried smell sweet to me. Good sweet, mostly. Some are foody sweet, some are just weird-sweet, and I think my nose interprets "musk" as sweetness, since Neutral is a "pure skin musk" and it smells incredibly and weirdly sweet to me.

Penitence is a little sweet and a lot spicy. It's intense, and distinct, and it was immediately a comfort smell for me. I have taken to wearing it most nights falling asleep -- which is probably the right time for it, since it doesn't last particularly long on my skin (sadness!) but while it lasts it's incredibly joyful and pleasing and comforting and delicious (though not in a foody way -- I don't want to eat my skin; I just want to inhale it.

My first BPAL order was 6 imps (sample vials), including this one, and this is the one I upgraded to a bottle in my second order.

I have cramps and they hurt and I'm tired and I can't drink coffee because I just told everyone I was cutting back and I can't go to bed because of my new improved lifestyle plan but my uterus hurts and I need to write Secret Slasha.

Moments later: okay, decided to take Ibuprofin and drink herbal tea and change the pairing of my Secret Slasha story, and all these things are helpful.

So, haz a poll:

[hey guys, did you know I have a "Calm/meditative" icon? For some reason I rarely use it!]

Not all objects of fannish adoration are white characters played by white actors )

Not all objects of fannish adoration are canonically straight )

This is a little shameful. (But meanwhile I looked up A.Simcoe to see what color his skin is under all those prosthetics and WOW is his website adorable. My urge to write Farscape RPF that is Ben/Claud-centric but involves the whole cast + DK being huge adorable dorks GROWS AND GROWS.)

Is anyone in the Massachusetts area (interested in) going to Warped Tour in July and possibly chaperoning a not-so-small kidlet?

Icon meme!


1. Reply to this post, and I will pick four/five of your userpics.
2. Make a post and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee.

[livejournal.com profile] purplejamish picked these:

3:24 am -- 1268 words written. Fic is basically outlined. Watched crucial character episode, now have "Least Complicated" on repeat.

4:27 am -- some # of words written in various scenes. Watching Taray stuff now. Oh, S5!Buffy/Giles, why so awesome? (Dynamic complex and hurty, but mostly -- serious, serious chemistry.) Oh yes. Tara is awesome too.

... in my head Tara has the same birthday as me. (Airdate 11/7 and my birthday is 11/3, so not entirely out of the question!)

5:35 -- BUFFY/GILES. SERIOUSLY. Am watching OMwF and oh, that -- rueful resigned look he gives her in "If We're Together." <3<3<3<3<3<3.

Have I ever mentioned I love this show a lot?

6:02 am -- hi Joss. I love OMWF but do you know that "Standing" practically reduced me to tears? Oh, favorite song ever. What's yours? )

7:07 am: Also, I made myself an icon.

There are about 3500 words in the .txt, but a lot of them are outliney stuff, not publishable words. Must drink more coffee and try to write seriously. Seriously!

Having almost no userinterests and all of them random makes the new year resolution. Hem. Intersesting.

in 2008 I will start a Marscest fund and cut it down to ten Lily/Snape/Harry fics a day )

And as I promised myself, I have done some scanning and now have a shiny new BSC icon. Is SO ADORABLE. *squishes*

Yuletide fic: there are 1624 words in the file, but they represent, um, some undignified number of false starts, so does not count.

...

is 3:30. Have flat 1000 words of Yuletide fic per NoteTab, actually a little less as it's counting html tags as words. Still.

Apparently JKR thinks Dumbledore was gay. I... this makes me very pleased, you guys. In my gut kind of pleased. (It's not about the canon -- if it's not in the text, it's not my canon -- it's about the affirmation.)

In the meantime -- while I try to settle down from this unexpected good news -- [livejournal.com profile] fuschia asked about these seven icons:

I would reciprocate, but do you know how frustrating this meme is on dialup? )

I imagine either you're all reading it now or else it'll be all 'splodey on the flists when you wake up like sane people, but either way, the LJ news post in which they admit they screwed up kind of a little ya think?

I'm probably not going to get much sleep tonight. Dammit. But the shiny distracty TRAINWRECK.

And, checkit, I got an icon out of the deal.

I'm not entirely down with some of the wording in the apology, but if [livejournal.com profile] pornish_pixies gets reinstated, I'll... well, among other things, I'll probably go to bed tomorrow night.

I love all my icons. That's why they're my icons. Hence, hard to choose. Generally I'm more enamored of recent icons than old ones, and I've been using this one a fair bit lately. Hm.

I'm pretty sure it has been over a year since I changed my default icon. The black+white midnight musing/Ducky/CA Diaries icon was very, very, very me and still is.

But this is the year of the new me.

ETA: Yes, a year and a month.

Or, every West Wing post I ever made or will make. omg she is so pretty.

My [livejournal.com profile] femslash06 fic, which is apparently due in 4 days (Who knew that April would get here so soon?!) is just over 500 words long. It's 100% PWP, beginning with one of the characters already naked. (True story: I had this particular sexact in my head as something I wanted to write but couldn't decide which of the 6 requested pairings I wanted to write it for. Oh, the decisions, the decisions!)

So now what? These are not characters are going to have climax, then 500 words of "was it good for you?" These are more characters who will have climax, then get away from each other as fast as humanly possible.

Ergh, stupid writing!

Also, NGIP.

Joss. OMG.. To quote [livejournal.com profile] inlovewithnight, the man is on *drugs*. The good drugs. The kind he shares. *makes icons*

Well, actually, just one icon, but my God, the *funny*. *is heartless and evil* You're welcome to snurch if you're heartless and evil too.

New default icon. It is the quintessence of this journal.

+late at night
+journaling is love
+childhood memories are love
+pretty angsty gay boys are love.

for the 207 (out of 209) of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, the icon is a scan from California Diaries book 5, Ducky vol. 1. Ducky McCrae is awesome beyond belief and you should all read the CA Diaries solely for the joy that is he. For those of you still in the dark, the California Diaries is a Baby-Sitters Club spin-off that is 1000x more excellent than even the BSC)

ETA: four icons.[/eta]

Finally got around to futzing with the scanner. Bases. Moderately spoilerish. First two volumes only.
