Yellow Brick Road

In which I try to get tired...

Here it is. 1:37 am, and I'm not tired.  Wheeeeeeee

This week has been pretty good.  I went to go see the Muppets again on Wednesday.  Did I mention I loved it?  It's just fantastic.  And I've been obsessing over the Muppets for the past week now.  XD  I got yarn to make an Kermit ami someday on Thursday.  I got season 3 of the Muppet Show at Target and a Kermit shirt at Wal-Mart on Friday.  And today, I got some nailpolish, I got a two pack, Pepe's Purple Passion and Divine Swine.  It's very clear what's what with that. XD  So yeah, I've been obsessing over the Muppets for the past week.

Thursday I was just at home, hanging out, when Nicole texted me and asked me if I wanted to get coffee.  So I said sure.  So an hour coffee trip turned into a 6 hour hanging out session.  We got coffee at the mall, and then we sniffed everything in Bath and Body Works, because we were there, and we could take our time and just smell everything.  It was great.  And then we headed to the Dollar Store, Target, Ross, TJ Maxx, and Wal-Mart.  Wal-Mart was super empty at 8 pm.  It was so weird.  Our's is a Super Wal-Mart, so it's open 24-7, it's just weird that it was that empty at 8 pm.  So anyways, we hung out until 10 or so, and I got home around 10:30.  And that was the night that I didn't fall asleep until around 5 am.  And I needed to be up nice and early, because yesterday, Jess and I went to the Mormon church and looked at nativity's from all over the world.  And then she and her sisters went off to do their own thing.  I went to McDonald's and got a frappe, because I didn't want hot coffee and I wanted some sort of coffee.  And then I browsed Wal-Mart for awhile, because I was waiting to meet Maegan, and I had a couple of hours to kill.  So I just browsed.  And then I went to meet Maegan at Hu Hot, and then we went back to Wal-Mart so she could show me something and so we could get ice cream.  And then we went back to my house, and crocheted and played some Mario Kart Wii, and then she went home.

Today, I didn't do much of anything.  I slept in and then I worked on Nicole's scarf for awhile.    I had to undo some of it, because it was becoming the incredible shrinking scarf.  Honestly, I don't know what I'm doing wrong.  Ah well.  It still looks good.  I love the pattern.  I think Nicole will like it too.  Think I'll work on a different project tomorrow.  Not sure which one.  I've got plenty of things to do.  Nicole's scarf, Katy's scarf, Maegan's hat, several different things for friends.  It's the crafting that stresses me out.  Knowing I have so many to do in the month.  Ugh.  Oh well.  And then I soaked in the tub for a bit, and went to the mall and dropped off the thing I got for the Humane Society off of the tree thing.  And then popped my head into BBW to say hi.  And then I got a pizza and came home and ate and watched the Muppet Show and worked on Nicole's scarf, and RP'd a bit.  It was a good and relaxing evening.  I highly enjoy the time to myself.  I want more time like that.

I should really try to get tired.  I guess I'll finish this episode of the Muppet Show and then settle down and read more of "The Help".  Which is really good.  I'm about half way through it.  I recommend it highly.  It picks up after the first couple of chapters.  But yeah, I'm gonna go try to sleep.

Writer's Block: Scents and sensibility

I love the smell of libraries and bookstores, freshly mowed grass, the way it smells after it rains, and coffee.

As far as lotions/perfume things, it all depends on what's in them.  I like the sweeter/fruitier smells, and some of the woodsier smells.  And citrus scents. I don't really like florals.  I do if they're not too strong though.  Something like Sweet Pea is good, or Cherry Blossom.  There's a couple of florals I don't like, like Moonlight Path and Japanese Cherry Blossom and strong, musky scents.  I don't like those.  But I like pretty much everything but just a few scents at BBW.

So that's what I like.
What is your favorite smell?
