    It’s 8:30 a.m. here in Seoul and my cooking class starts at 10. I had an easy flight, no problems. I love the toilet seat/bidet in my room, I spent about 20 minutes trying out all the different combinations because the instructions are in Korean and I’m sure I have very clean bits by now. I love the heated seat, too. Breakfast was pickled leeks and pork with bean sprouts. There is a patisserie on the ground floor so sweets are on the menu sometime, too. I rummaged through my little bag of samples that live in my travel toiletries bag and today I’m wearing Dryad. Not something I need a bottle of but it smells nice.

    Shycat, those kitties are adorable.

    Hello! Two more kittens poke out their wee noses. My biggest gray boy is Zlatan for Acey's favorite soccer player on the LA Galaxy soccer team, which he and his family have recently began going to see. I now feel free to name the other four for NBA players! Kawhi seems a likely name for my other boy. I have three girls...any suggestions will be welcome. The mother's name Bluebell. My other cats are Ladybug and Buttercup.

    My mother asked me how many I was going to keep....I was confused. Keep? Don't you keep all of them???

    Oh lawdy, now you've made me want kittens. But no no no no. If only there was a way to be a kitten grandparent, so you could send them home after an evening of babysitting.

    2 am. Frog in bucket.

    ETA: 2:19 Second frog in second bucket.

    ETA: Also, 8 inch turtle in a third bucket. I got lots-o-buckets.

    Hose turned on to refill pool despite black water. Kittens asleep. Shycat sobered up now, but too cautious for long drive into the country. Planning a trip in 8 hours. More Kai for bed. Heart pounding.

    Hello and best to everyone. Hazel 5 I hope your toe is better soon!
    Shycat what precious kittens! I’d love a kitten but my two grown kitties would overrule me. They’re super jealous and want all the attention.

    Quarry - I didn't know about the similarities to Black by Bulgari and VIP Room. I do remember VIP Room was of the first seriously smoky scents that I ever wore in my life. I had the sensation that I'd walked through a nightclub and the cigarette smoke (or smoke machine smoke) had lingered on my skin - which I think was what the perfumer/line intended with the fragrance name. I loved that. It was many years later, standing with my ex-partner and KevinGuyer (old BN member) in the Williamsburg location of the CB I Hate Perfume store in front of about 40 different smoke accords that Christopher sold in his shop and I had an epiphany: I love smoke in fragrances!! There are only a handful of fragrances (Japon Noir by Tom Ford comes to mind) where the smoke is just 'too much' for my nose. Otherwise, it's always welcomed.


    It's 6:45 am and I'm off to Cross Fit in a cloud of:

    Happy travels to our SotDers who are away from home! kewart, enjoy your home in Nice! foxbins, cooking in Seoul! How fascinating! Now that's a major opportunity. And yes, ExtremeK, Michigan is lovely! I'm just a few minutes from the IN/MI border. We don't brag much about the beauty of this part of the country as its not our style. But beautiful, it is and yes, Michigan's weather is often more mild than even its surrounding states thanks to those gorgeous lakes. I could definitely live there!

    I'm in Diorella today, lots of it. Trying out a '78 version as well as a 1990. I'm a day late but happy 'cause I smells like Kotori & Cook.bot. Me too, me too!

    Have a good day, all!

    Today I felt like wearing something figgy, so Premier Figuier it is.

    Thanks for the good "toe" wishes, all. It's broken, yes, but could be so much worse. It's a non-displaced fracture and all it needs is buddy taping. And the pain is manageable with ibuprofen and tylenol. Overall I'd say I'm very lucky.
