Yes, this is one of those posts. Random, a little ADD, and we have some stuff to cover.
First, a reader needs your help. I am terrible at the “I really like this fragrance, what else would work for me” game. I think
all many of you guys are great at it! Caroline loves the fresh tones of DKNY Original and Davidoff Cool Water” and is looking for something new and fresh but with a similar scent as these. Ideas for her? If anyone else has one of those questions, e-mail me and once a month I’ll throw them all out there to get some better help than I am.

Also in my little bag of mounting samples are some samples I was sent to do drawings on, and I just haven’t had time to fit them in somewhere. We have five carded samples of Andy Tauer’s Noontide Petals – which is really lovely! – to give away. We also have five samples of Histoires de Parfums Olympia Music Hall Le Parfum – also yummy and lovely! – to give away. To be entered, just drop a comment helping Caroline out or telling me you are as bad as I am at doing that “if I like this, what’s close to it” game.
Can we talk Mr. Selfridge series on PBS? I’m not normally a Jeremy Piven fan, but he is so good as Selfridge, and I”m three episodes in and completely entranced with the series. Anyone else watching it and obsessed with the window designer, Le Clere? (sp on the name) and want to be besties with Agnes?
Last on my random list of things I have to tell you about is how the 3D television obsession has turned into the unending money pit. My sister has a 3D TV, which I never thought I really needed until she plugged in Life of Pi in 3D. Now, to say I’m a little obsessed with the Life of Pi is an absurd understatement of my rabid love of that movie. I watch it about two times a week since I got it on DVD. Then I saw it in 3D. ZOMG, people. If you haven’t seen this movie, just see it in 3D, don’t bother with anything else. If you have seen it, you still need to see it in 3D to see how it was really intended to be seen. It is one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen … even BEFORE I saw it in 3D. So I went shopping for a 3D TV. Heck, my TV is about seven years old, time to get a new one! Even though it is working perfectly. Well. Yeah. Finally get it, after long shipping times, then waiting another four days before the trucking company could bring it to me, get it all set up – bad stand that needs replaced, but it’s secure – plug in the Blu-ray and get
black screen. Huh?
Now what? Harry was over helping me set things and quickly Googled while I kept restarting everything, thinking somehow I’d get a different result, and informed me I had to have a 3D Blu-ray DVD player. Argh!!!! Luckily they aren’t expensive, but it gets here Wednesday, along with my other HDMI cable that’s longer. I.am.dying. I haven’t seen LIfe of Pi in two weeks, and I’m jonesin’ for some Richard Parker action. I swear, this 3D envy has gotten expensive! Have you ever done that? Well, perfume, definitely, but something else? Pick any topic and feel free to comment as randomly as you like and get entered to win one of the samples!
