|06:55 am - Okay, that's Fair...|
Psychic Fair, that is! Yes, once again, it's time for the local Psychic Fair wherein I will act as my Mom's Lovely Assistant(tm) as she astounds the masses with dream card readings.
The only question is, Should I take my credit card?
Oh, mental note: make sure Mom brings the Teacup Maltese.
Not nearly big enough, but thanks anyway.
If you take your credit card, you'll probably kick yourself later.
If you don't take your credit card, you'll probably kick yourself all through the Psychic Fair. And maybe later.
Otherwise, I cannot give advice because I don't want to be held responsible for the results. ;D
I got a bunch of 10ml single-note perfume oils....for $5 a pop.
Including cinnamon which I haven't been able to find ANYWHERE.
So, knowing that, what would your advice be now? :-)
And is there anything you might like a decant of?
What, just the perfume oils? You didn't splurge on flowing silky things and buckets o' beads?! o.O
I never seriously thought you'd restrain yourself completely. What would be the fun in that? ;)
I've no idea what I might like a decant of. Did you try the cinnamon oil on your skin yet? So many people welt up with cinnamon oil, maybe that's why it's so hard to find it as a single note.
Right now I'm struggling to pare down an unreasonably huge BPAL order since the Milk Moon update went live overnight. I don't want everything, but along with the stuff already on my list, it's too much! I will be firm and rein myself in ... a little ...
The bead-seller was AWOL this time, and the flowing silky things lady didn't have anything new that interested me. ~sigh~
I'm wearing the cinnamon oil now. It's been on about 10 minutes, and no burny/welty things are happening. I'll let you know if it causes problems. It's difficult to get the ratio of cinnamon essential oil to carrier oil correct such that you get the smell of cinnamon without burning the hell out of the person's skin, plus some people are much more sensitive to cinnamon oil than others as I understand it.
Oh GOD the smell of cinnamon!!!
And, dude: $5 for 10ml.
I'll send you the list of all the ones I've got. :-) I got a couple like "Dragon's Blood" and "Ylang Ylang" because I keep seeing those in BPAL descriptions and I have no earthly idea what they smell like. They didn't have Bergamot or Vetiver, or I would have gotten them too.
Are you getting Milk Moon?
But if it's a psychic fair, shouldn't you already know if you should take the credit card? < /obligatory obvious joke >
Yeah, I bet that never gets old.
Oh definitely bring the teacup maltese. Arrange the jewelry artfuly in its fur and you are sure to sell a bundle!
Mom said the dog would be too much trouble. I tried to talk her into it, but she refused.
And then, when we got there, you know what I saw?
DO YOU KNOW WHAT I SAW?
A long-haired chihuahua. Sucker looks like a miniature pomeranian -- all fluffy and precious and not at all yappy and freaky like normal chihuahuas.
Mom seriously should have listened to me. She wouldn't even go for the "free kitten with every reading," if you can believe that.
I mean, hell. You try to help some people!
OMFG. A fluffy precious chihuahua?!?!
I know I would be sucked in and I don't even believe in this stuff.
I mean, at the RenFaire I spend money wherever they let me pet rats. Hee. Rats! How much more would I be sucked in with cute puppies and kitties?! A lot.
Oh now that is just not fair. This is an arms race, is what it is. Fluffy dogs lead to puppies which lead to kittens and then before you know it, you will have baby panda bears balancing ice cream sundaes on their heads.
Baby panda bears with ice-cream sundaes on their heads paddling tiny rafts leading orphans to safety.
Whilst wearing a ducky costume.
Yeah, that is pretty much the nuclear bomb of cuteness. You would win, but at what cost? AT WHAT COST??? The fallout could really kill a person. People would stand there and stare and admire for so long they would forget to eat. And then that would be it.
Sometimes small sacrifices have to be made for the greater good.
It's regrettable, but there you are.
And, as a side note, think of the millions you could make on that as a weight loss plan! The Nuclear Cuteness Diet!
We could be rich. RICH, I tell you!
Them psychics are a tricksy bunch, aren't they?
You said it.
And on Sunday, yet ANOTHER person brought a chihuahua, but this one looked kind of like a little tiny pit bull with a chihuahua head. I mean, how freakin' cute is THAT? It's like roly-poly AND muscular at the same time!
Fuck it. Next year I'm bringing Chewie.
Only the best revolutionaries bring a chihuahua. They give a certain street cred and pure anger to your cause.
