become Lions and
The Rule of Darkness

First day of the rest of your life on the road to hell [Jan. 3rd, 2011|10:37 am]

I'm a bad person.

Happy New Year!   A brand fresh start!  This will be the year of personal growth, good habits, and my journey toward celestial perfection!

Or, ya know, not.

I decided to skip the resolutions.  They just make reading my sporatic diary extreemly depressing.  But I couldn't stop making some mental ones.  Which included saving money.  And walking to work more.

So when my mom told me I could take the car this morning, I squeed with joy, took time to actually put on some of my overwhelming makeup (This Is Why You're Poor) and sped off to park in the Mall garage which charges by the hour--hey, its cheaper than a parking ticket!

They I stopped at the vending machine for a soda.  I plunked in the coins, pressed my choice, and waited.

There were odd noises.  I checked, and for some reason the machine had spat out not my Cherry Pepsi, but 2 Mt. Dews-one diet. 

I took them.   Snatched them up, stuffed them in my bag, and ran on to work. 

I felt/feel bad.  But not enough to not take or drink them.   Hey, I figured, if I don't take them, the next person will!  This of course assumes that in the entier population of my town there is not one person possesing more honesty then me.  Which adds pride to my "Reasons I'm Going to Hell" list.

Really though.  This is not the first time I've cheated this vending machine.  And who do you report it too?  I have a feeling I'd just get funny looks and offers to take the offending free soda off my obsessively honest hands if I complained to one of the merchants sharing the building with this faulty-in-my-favor contraption. 

If I were General Authority wife matieral, I'd have...just left them?  Taken only one?  But I'd technically paid for one Cherry Pepsi.  So was I supposed to give it more money until it gave me one?  Taken out the Mt. Dews and left them beside the machine with a lovely handwritten note explaining the mistake and thereby extolling my virtuous honesty?  

Revenge may be naturally sweet, but dishonesty comes with aspartame.

Ides of March 2009

A mixture of Italian greenery, gleaming metal, and classical Roman cologne:  rosemary, bergamot, lemon rind and vervain with costus, balsam, benzoin, gray amber, dittany, white narcissus and iris.

Death Notes-- white narcissus, iris  Win--rosemary, bergamot, lemon rind, balsam

Oooh, Roman Man!  Yummy Roman man.  Herby and strong.  A scent to stab a tyrant too.  No narcissus or iris, yay!

What makes amber gray?

The Host of the Air

Peat and rolling grass-covered hills, with wine-dappled heather, white clover, cloudberry, juniper berry, bluebell, dandelion, and cross-leaved heath.

Death Notes--??? Win--???

ZMOG LILIES!!! Ack! Get it off me!  Tones down to soapy florals. All those interesting notes, and all I get is soapy flowers.  Not fair.

Eanach Dhuin

Unutterable grief expressed through the scent of balsam, frankincense, blackberry leaf, oud, white rose, driftwood, zdravets, and bitter clove, beneath the cold waters of the River Corrib.

Death Notes--white rose  Win--Balsam, frankincense, bitter clove

Soap. Lovely spices and woods rendered pure soap by something.  I'm going to go cry now, while I look up oud and zdravets.

A scent of opulence, luxury, depredation, and dissolusion: velvety orris root and glittering bergamot, ambergris, red currant, honey, and neroli, with red oakmoss, patchouli, labdanum, and black musk.

Death notes--ladbanum, black musk  Win--red currant, honey, patchouli

Lovely.  Just lovely.  It really does smell feels very Arthurian to me for some reason.  Wishing I'd snatched up a bottle.

Red roses, blood-flecked lilies, upturned earth, yew branches, and blood mingled with river sand.

Death notes--roses, lilies. Win--yew, earth.

Rose stomps on everything. :(  Love the name, though. Bit of yew peeking through, will try again. Lilies are blessedly absent so far.

Fades rather quickly for a rose blend.
