    Good morning everyone!

    I see things haven't been fixed around here ...hmph! And I was so sure a few days of my absence would do the trick, lol! My ballet classes start up again today, and I'm in Chanel 1932 for my first day back. My mother went to Paris and came back with it, saying that she was told that it's a Paris exclusive. I didn't have the heart to tell her I sniffed it at Saks last week, hehe. Oh well, she'll see it there herself soon enough, I'm sure. The fragrance is beautiful, btw ...aldehydic jasmine vanilla floral with a clear Chanel signature. No doubt it'll be a warmer-weather favorite.

    Okay then, I'm off to dance - y'all have a great day!





    Congrats to you and your daughter, Robin! That must be quite a heavy load off your mind!

I'm sure I'll wear it often, but I'm not entirely sure I would have bought a bottle for myself ...it didn't immediately go on my wish list after sniffing it, if that tells you anything. But I could definitely grow to adore it ...I just don't know yet. At any rate, the 12th will be here before you know it!

    Good morning, gang 'o mine.

    I know at least Shades and Billybelle watched the Super Bowl (I want to and have spelled it "Superbowl"). I wouldn't normally remember this sporting event, but last night's was exceptionally entertaining, and I'm not just referring to half-time entertainer Beyoncé (all good) or the commercials (two or three were good). The half-hour power outage added layers and layers of ponder-full amusement. Plus, having brothers born just 15 months apart as opposing coaches, well, you just can't write stuff like this. By the time gandhajala catches the highlights, the pundits will have had time to compose all sorts of jokes about a raccoon falling into a power station or a sports commissioner putting a penny in a fusebox to bring the lights back on.

    In news from Great Britain ... I see that a dog and his man found a 6.6-pound ball of ambergris on a beach in Morecambe. Wish one of our Brit BN boys had pocketed the $180,000 vomit. You fellas have to start beach combing and looking down at the ground rather than up at the birds.

    JR: "fieldfare," what a charming name. But, then again, we are using your language.

    Flathorn: I'm shallow today in Bond No. 9 Mothers. It smells like mall -- or "mall fare" -- but better done. I seem to try to talk myself out of liking it, or interrogate myself, "Why are you reaching for that?" But I have no answer. Probably because the scent completely bypasses the thinky thing. Whadaya call it? Oh, yeah, the brain.

    RHM: Sofie -- soo precious, soo precocious.

    Robin: Congratulations to your daughter and you.

    Lucasai: Scholarly congrats to you, too!

    Elizrj: Happy shoveling.

    Mom was a little batty last night...middle of the night phone call, weird stuff, but today she seemed back to herself. I took over some homemede potato leek soup and we watched a DVD of Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. We went to see this movie together at the theater when it first came out (1971).

    Hugs to all, I am having a maddening busy day so I cannot talk long - however you are all in my thoughts & I love reading everyone's little personal stories/comments.

    SOTD is:

    Play Red by Comme des Garcons (first time from a sample)



    Cherry? I don't smell it. What I do smell is something mildly sweet and spicy. Weird (of course it is, it's a CdG) and not entirely sure how I feel about this yet. Indifferent, I suppose.

    I wore L'Heure Bleue to my art class. It is one I don't have a personal history with, and I had hopes that it might be conducive to the artistic process, as certain types of music are.

    Such interesting stories everyone has. I really enjoy reading you all. I don't always pick names out for comment, but I read them all with interest, nevertheless (I'm not the greatest forum-ista, just love fragrances, and am here to learn).

    I wore the last of my J Lo Glow yesterday and the love affair is over. I'm so glad - it's like having a tawdry affair with someone you really don't like, but they still manage to get to you. I won't be visiting that one again .

    I'm back to woods today - CdG Hinoki. It's such a natural woody recreation with its own personality.

    Being stuck in town for 3 weeks has made me start craving natural smells. The Pineapple Express that hit southcentral AK a while back caused huge overflow problems on the lake I land my plane on at my homestead. I don't dare land on it yet with skis, unless I feel like nosing up (or worse), so I'm sitting tight in town, enjoying its amenities and pluses (eating out is nice!).

    Hello again!

    It's gone now so I can't double-check, but I'm not so sure about my initial jasmine-vanilla impression regarding Chanel 1932 ...well, not sure about the vanilla, that is ...could be tonka or something else slightly sweet and creamy ...or slightly resinous? Lol, I suppose I need to pay more attention to it next time. I really can't come up with another fragrance to compare it to iivanita, aside from initial knee-jerk and very fleeting reactions that I can't even recall clearly now, but it's not like Samsara, which is definitely more of a sandalwoody oriental than a jasminey floral to my way of smelling, but I think there is some smooth sandalwood in 1932 as well ...along with some rose and iris that I didn't mention before. One thing I can say for certain is it's already growing on me, as expected, and I'm looking forward to wearing it again and discovering what other facets have yet to reveal themselves.

    But now for something completely different, I'm in Ava Luxe's tender and graceful Nude Musk for the afternoon ...my current favorite soft and non-animalic, "your skin but better" musk.

    What fun, lilybelle! What medium are you working in? I can be like that too, easily distracted particularly when others are around. If you're allowed, I recommend bringing your own music to listen to, via headphones/earbuds of course. It really helps me to focus on what's in front of me - maybe it could work for you, too.

    Yes, Ms Quarry, I was watching the Superbowl and dreaming of the day MY team plays in it. Last night, I was rooting for 49ravener's to make Mr Shades some money ... and they did! He plays those games where you buy a square and hope that the score matches your square. Well, it did in the 3rd quarter and it plaid "close" in the 1st ... DH walked away with $1300!

    I'm wearing Herve Leger today. It's been a total bummer of a day and I'm just going to head to bed and cuddle with my dog, Cali ...
