Bits & Pieces

The perfume that I was given on Sunday was made by L'Occitane en Provence.   My husband, who's an editor and scholar and picky about word use, told me that he'd been very good and not pointed out the odd construction to the clerk, that "l'Occitane" might mean "the woman of Occitania" but that Provence was in Occitania, not the other way around.   Meanwhile I'd been noticing that there was Braille labelling along one side of the box, and my son took the box, ran his finger along the raised dots and said, "hey, but they got in right in Braille."    Quick-witted kid. :-)

I've gotten a Dreamwidth account.  True to my usual pattern of rarely using the same name twice, on it I'm "chanson".   (I'm Kat here, Cimeara on deviantArt, ChansonArts on Blogger & g-mail, carolhanson on Twitter, etc., etc.)   So far I have no intentions of doing anything more with it than possible cross-posting, so there's no need to follow it, but let me know if you'd like an invite code.

I have a bottle of their Neroli, which sometimes I adore and sometimes I find far too strong, depending on my mood.

So they have multiple orangey ones! Mine is "Feu d'Orange" from blood oranges and other citrus. It's got something flowery in it too, or at least that's what comes across on my skin.

Dreamwidth looks interesting. Let me know what you think of it. Lj is starting to grate.

I'm not planning to do much checking, really, too busy with other things. Are you on it already? Like LJ, you can browse open posts without joining (unlike LJ, you can even specify other people's Open IDs so they can read your locked posts without joining), but let me know if you'd like an invite code to set up a free journal there. I have one code available now, and they said they'd be giving out others soon.

That would be very cool. I want to learn to paint watercolours so this might be the place to meet other people that do as well.
