Okay, it’s official — Patty and I will be in L.A. the weekend of March 14th. Why? Just for the fun of it. I’m going because Patty will drive, and Patty thought driving in Italy was fun so you know she’s crazy. We are planning some sniffage, some Retail Therapy, and … you tell me! What else should we do? This is my first visit to L.A.
Franco at the Scent Bar has graciously offered to open early on Saturday the 14th and throw us a Posse Party! So polish up your spurs and dust off your saddlebags, because that morning (probably at 10 am) we’ll all be gathering for freeeeee Liquid Refreshments and Other Goodies, and you’re invited! We’re mulling the most efficient way to maintain an RSVP list because Franco would like to have a rough guesstimate. We’ll keep you posted as we organize more of the details, I think Patty’s setting something up on Facebook. So … anybody want to come? De-lurk and say so! Also feel free to put the word out there to fellow MUAers, POL, etc. If you have any suggestions for where else I should post this (does MUA have a bulletin board?) let me know. I am really excited.
Also, Musette suggested a fun game — Barack Obama’s transitional team called you in a panic — you’re going to be his fragrance advisor (it’s a new position at the White House, and it pays really well!) What should he wear to the inauguration? For the festivities? On a daily basis? How about Michelle, what fragrance(s) should she wear? Alternately, what fragrance will you wear for any inaugural events? I know some of you have already been down to the Mall for the musical events.
I decided 2009 was going to be a year to try new things, so this morning I’m having oral surgery! I hear it’s tons of fun. I’m planning on spending this afternoon jacked up on Vicodin watching reruns of House, assuming all goes well, so keep your toes crossed! I’m planning on not wearing any perfume, because who wants a favorite scent indelibly associated with oral surgery? Also I will be painting my nails blue.
Finally, here’s my annual photo of my heavily perfumed orchid that is blooming again. One of you suckered me into buying this ridiculous thing several years ago after I did an orchid post, I stuck it in a window and have been actively neglecting it ever since. It responds to this tough love with the spectacular bloomage you see here, which goes on for days and smells fantastic.
