    Evening all,

    G, be well, & don't be a stranger!

    l've re-applied Encens Flamboyant this evening. The first time l wore this, l got an overwhelming scent of burning, but on subsequent wears it's been a soft, comforting incense, & it felt perfect for work today. Thank goodness, this wasn't a bad blind buy after all.

    Hey again -

    One more night of Voodoo, and we're seeing The Cure, no questions asked! One of the great things about seeing these bands I loved as a kid is realizing that I'm really still the same person I was then, with added wisdom, experience and baggage of course, but the feeling and the thrill is the same, it doesn't go away or even change much as I've gotten older, and it's an oddly exhilarating realization, lol. So ...I totally feel sixteen, and to enhance that sensation I'm wearing the same perfume I wore the first time I saw them in 1985, the incredible K de Krizia. And it's working ...so awesome.

    Y'all have a fantastic evening!

    Now that's good service! And lookit those precious little things - I bet they're divine! I'm fortunate to have excellent ersters available here (especially lucky considering the woes of the Gulf) and your sweet Coffin Bays have moved us one step closer to making a decision about dinner tonight.

    Well, I do tend to like things pretty feminine, but you just never know what might strike my fancy ...and if you say it's a great perfume, I can only imagine that it's something pretty special. I've already made a mental note to try it next time I'm sampling.

    Thanks Kiliwia and Evangeline, Mom did enjoy herself-- but I found out the hard way that just because a restaurant has a ramp does not mean they have a handicapped-accessible bathroom stall. I told my husband that before we take her anywhere to eat again, I will first make sure there is a stall I can get her into without having to be a contortionist!

    Evangeline, I am ridiculously delighted with the little orange tree! I had frangipani (plumeria) trees right outside my house when I lived in Africa and can fully understand how happy you'll be when the buds open! So fragrant! Which color do you have-- the yellow and white ones or the pink and yellow ones? I found they smelled a little different from each other.

    Lol @ "ridiculously delighted" - I know exactly what you mean! I'm already pretty delirious about the buds - there are about a dozen in a cluster! It's supposed to be pink, plumeria rubra "Tahitian Sunset", but I haven't seen it in bloom so I can't be sure. There was a blooming one when I bought it that compelled me to ask for the very same one, so I'm hoping for pink ...although I can't imagine I'd be very disappointed if it's a surprise, they're all so luscious. They don't get as big here as they do in the South Pacific, or in Africa as well, I'm sure, but they make very good small container trees, and they can bloom quite profusely when treated right ...I just can't wait! We're supposed to go away for Christmas, but I told Tony if they haven't bloomed by then we'll have to cancel, lol - I really don't want to miss it.

I'm more of a fan than Tony by far, but he was quite impressed, too ...and a very good sport.
    Yes, I know he lived there, hehe, I've been a pretty big fan of some of his stuff...though I don't listen to a pretty good portion of his songs anymore since I converted to Christianity, some lyrics I just don't like hearing at all anymore. But there are some good songs with no bad lyrics in them. I got to meet Trent/NIN when they first came out...in the late 80's, at a listening party. Pretty cool times(even if I don't listen to most of that album anymore). I was only a kid..I was beyond elated to meet the band that I just started really liking. They stopped in my town of all places..a listening party outside a pizza place. I got to chat it up with the NIN people for a bit. They were so nice. Just fun times, good memories. They let me listen to a cd that hadn't come out yet, their first 'remix' album. I kept saying they were WAY better than that Bon Jovi and Metallica crap that was out there LOL. Which songs did he play? I am a bit curious of the playlist these days...even though, ya, I skip over a good portion of them...going to guess he played stuff from the new album?

    Glad you had fun, E!!

    Wait, I just read you are seeing The Cure? They still do shows? Hehe. I had no idea. Have fun!!

    Wow kalli, hangin' with Trent - how cool! Let's see, among many, many others that I'm neglecting to mention*, Copy of A, Hesitation Marks, All Time Low, Disappointed, Come Back Haunted, Black Noise, While I'm Still Here ...lots from Hesitation Marks, not so much from Pretty Hate Machine and The Downward Spiral ...like you, he's in a much different place than he was back when he recorded those. They closed with Hurt, as usual. Yeah, it was lots of fun - thanks, again!

    *so here's the whole setlist - http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/nine-i...-1bc74160.html

    It is pretty cool. Huh, not so much from TDS and PHM huh? I think I did hear he was in a different place and didn't play some songs anymore that he didn't resonate with, that's why I was curious. Oh...he played A Warm Place? Oh, that's one of my faves and have only seen him play it once-I think-out of the six shows I've been too. Stopped going to shows cause, ya, in a different place than I used to be. Hehe, they do always seem to close with Hurt. Interesting, thanks!

    kalli and Mrs.E., please mention a word or two about your SotD while discussing Nine Inch Nails, is at all possible.

    Wearing Amouage Fate to bed: wrong choice for sure, will probably be tossing and turning and thinking about Europe-educated and couture clad sultans and their harems. Never mind me.

    Okie dokie. A lot of our SOTD threads go slightly OT a bit..like people renovating their home, food, etc. Is that now more strict as well?

    My Monday is almost over! But speaking of Sunday, I wore Fleur d'Oranger by L'Artisan 2007 edition. It was a perfect scent for a lovely spring day.
