Out Again

HandkerchiefWell I can’t win for losing. The allergies I had last week gave way to the flu this week. Fever, chills, the whole nine yards. Oddly, everything smells heightened: the soup I made smelled like socks, and the Fumerie Turque I put on for the heck of it smelled so sternly of stewed fruits I had to wash it off.

So no review this week.

But can I say that I am super-happy that Portia is coming to town? The last time she was here we spent most of the week together; I love to show people around LA and Portia was a delight. SHe charmed everybody in sight, including the notoriously dour SA’s at Macy’s and one notoriously prickly restaurant owner. As She wrote in her post Yesterday, we will be at ScentBar at a date to be announced to drink champagne and talk about our favorite winter scents (I’m sure you can guess at least one of mine.) If you’re in the LA area at that time please drop in and play. She’ll also be in Chicago and New York so you have three chances to meet a really delightful person, and sniff stuff.

What could be better than that?
