I just got my JLPT3 results in the post. I PASSED!! Remember how I predicted that I was hovering around the pass/fail mark (60%) and only time would tell which side I fell on? Well, I passed at 79%, which is well above that mark. I'm stunned!




I'm thinking more about Dream Live 4th. Depending what time the performance was, maybe I could get to Yokohama after work...? In any case, I'm going to try to get a shift swap tomorrow.

(Amused that the map on Pacifico's website is 'printed on recycled paper'. What?)




I love Mixi! I love that allows me to spam as much as I want without wondering if I'm clogging up flists. Also, they have as many pointless communities, if not more, than we do. I'm looking at three different communities for people born on 31st March. And, of course, I joined the Side B comm.

    It sounds stupid, but BPAL is making me really happy right now. It's like I can renew an entire sense every day. Currently wearing Bordello -- I smell of plum and rum.

    Eclipse

    What They Say: All the glory, warmth and majesty of the sun -- darkened. A delicious blend of bitter almond, vanilla, frankincense and heliotrope, with a drop of cinnamon.

    Marzipan recipes.

    Bottle: Marzipan!

    Skin: Yup, that's marzipan ("bitter" almond...?). It smells wonderful. I think there might be a lower note in it just to make it more interestng. Maybe that's the frankincense. I don't think I can smell any cinnamon.

    Dried: It's at its strongest when it's just put on the skin and doesn't last very long. But delicious as long as it does. I can't stop sniffing my wrists.

    Kabuki

    What They Say: Compelling, complex, and utterly enigmatic: a luxuriant, exotic blend of cherry, red musk, and star anise.

    Yes, I confess that this is probably the one BPAL scent I chose for the name. I love kabuki theatre. I wasn't sure about the anise, since I HATE liquorice, but wasn't sure if I would feel the same about the scent.

    Bottle: Liquorice Allsorts.

    Skin: Oh... this is really kind of nasty. I don't like it much at all. It smells like two different types of liquorice.

    Dried: It fades to something that is only slightly aniseedy and kind of nice. But I don't want that long interval inbetween when it smells horrible. I think this is the first one I'm going to put up for swap. Am also considering putting up Dorian for a swap -- only problem is that the bottle's half-empty because I kept giving it one last chance since everyone seems to love it. I revised my initial opinion of it though -- it smells like sugar and bubblebath (I think that's the tea).




    I'm stuck in a story and part of me thinks that possibly the best way around it is to delete most of the chapter I just wrote. I think maybe my problem is that I want to write military SF that operates on Gundam Logic (a boy gets into mecha and can fly it instantly -- whyever not?). I think I will talk about it more in a filtered post though.

    Spam me, please. I need a distraction.
