    ( 2008 )
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    How many times can one change the adjectives/adverbs of the F word?

    It's been a very strange and unusual time on BN as I don't remember seeing this much Spam activity ever. BN has been living in the Twilight Zone the last couple of weeks.

    Spammers, politicians, climate issues. At least we don't have to put up with house guests. Oh, wait ...

    How'er we doing today, foxbins?

    It's a dark, quiet, drizzly Sunday here. Mr. Q is supposed to take it easy for a couple weeks, so we're just lounging with the remote and our new, largest-yet French press (50 oz.). We're YouTubing Anthony Newley and Michael Bublé at Mr. Q's request.

    Thanks for the support, all! What we lack in spam-filtering, we more than make up for in camaraderie! If anyone knows some filthy words that I don't, I do believe it would be you, JR! The American mods have indeed been learning some fab British insults and slang words of late. And N.Cal, don't forget that word can be a noun, too! Just leave it as is, or my personal favorite, put an -er on the end. And that, is how to describe a spammer. Probably some other people you've met as well!

    In No.5 L'Eau for now. Gotta dash but will be back later, so don't even think about it, spammers.

    Anthony Newley! There's a name I haven't heard in many a decade. Talk about a theatrical voice... "What Kind of Fool Am I?"

    Vetiverus by Oliver & Co. for me today. I smell a bit like a green bell pepper.

    Green bell pepper? Have you smelled Hermès Eau de Gentiane Blanche? That's exactly what it smells like.

    They are gone. Lest you think I am the world's most inhospitable hostess, some background: I am an introvert's introvert. I live in a 1000 sq.ft., 1-bath house. I drive a tiny Honda Fit. I was chauffeur for three days and the husband is a big, clumsy man with ADD and IBS who never. stops. talking. This time, he only broke a wine glass and put his hand through the screen door. She is my best friend and they are truly nice people, kind and generous, but overwhelming except in very small doses. Thanks so much for your encouragement while they were here, I had to vent a little or I'd scream. Today I'm wearing Cuir Cannage. I might put on some Bombay Bling later and have a little party all by myself.

    No explanations required. I once had one of my dearest friends come to stay with me for 10 days. As kind, generous and sweet a person as you could ever meet, but one with whom I had never shared accommodations. On day one, she could not (would not) eat or drink a single thing in my house -- no allergies, just picky. On day two, she asked if I could remove my bottle of laundry detergent from the house and store it outdoors. She claimed the smell coming from the (closed) bottle was so irritating that it kept her awake -- and the bottle was stored in a laundry room that was separated from her bedroom by three closed doors and an entire staircase. And this from someone who wore pure patchouli essential oil.

    I continued to love her, but from a respectful distance after that.

    What a great time of year to be in Montreal Trilby Lark. I would love to go back, having spent 2 years of college there early 70's, would love to see the changes & what remains there from my memories.

    Fabulous Sunday to all!
