It is Hottie Friday, and it’s time to remind everyone that Christian Bale is simply the most gorgeous thing intheworldperiod.
And speaking of obsessions, and because I’m always thinking about you guys, and my obsession is your obsession, plus we can feed the world with this trifling obsession, just head over to Feed Rice, indulge your word knowledge and feed the world some rice. I’ve spent far too much time on there today and need to pass it along because now I feel singularly responsible for starving children when I can’t ferret out the meaning of tussock without heading to dictionary.com which –I would never do because that’s cheating.
Hey, did you know that Basenotes is doing their 8th annual Fragrance Awards? Well, sure, you know that. But did you know that they have a category for Best Fragrance Blog? Now, there are some truly wonderful fragrance blogs out there, but being the shameless, pandering, popinjays we are (thankyou, feedrice, for reminding me of all the best words I forgot I had!), we want to extirpate the competition — well, that’s a little strong, but we’d really like to win this year. So head on over and vote? There’s something in it for you too, a Basenotes drawing for a nice prize from Fragrancenet.com. And if we win…. well, there will be much merry-making, frivolity and sample giving away. So this is our time to importune you to shag your fingers over and vote, vote, vote! And do I need to add that one vote should be for us as Best Perfume Blog? I know, we really are shameless, and I almost feel bad about it, except if we don’t win, March and Lee will weep like
puppies kittens baby lambs clubbed baby seals — oops, not pc — newborn owls.
Speaking of gorgeous obsessions, the winners of the Iris Gris and Candide Effluve samples are — Teri and Cathy/bluechile. Just click on the Contact Us button over there to the left, send me your full name and address, and I’ll shoot you off the samples.
As I’m dwelling on my own obsessions, it occurs to me that my trip this weekend could be Exhibit A. So while I head off to an overnight visit to Portland based on this post from Perfume Smellin’ Things, I’m thinking obsession, what obsession? This is an opportunity to smell some things that sound pretty special… snow rose? Come to mama! We’ll have a drawing for a sample of all of the ones that I bring back. If I bring back nothing… well, yeah, right. So just make a comment to get in the drawing!
If you haven’t already, go read that Perfume House article and tell me which two do you think would be your favorites? And what is your latest obsessions, perfume or nonperfume?
P.S. Anyone living IN London and able to run a quick little errand for me, let me know!
