There is a sporting world cup I've never heard of before, and I'm DYING to see it televised. It's the Rock, Paper, Scissors World Championships. No, really. The competition is being held in Toronto, and this article profiles the Mexican national champion. The prize on the line is $10,000, but I suspect the devotees of the sport would tell you it's all about the glory.
If you're a fan of Facebook, check out the article Help! I'm Addicted To Facebook to see if your usage is still within the realm of "normal". There are ten warning signs, and so far I don't have any. (Phew!)
On a purely meteorological note, I'm writing this on Sunday evening and crossing my fingers for snow. We have barely had a flake this winter! Now generally I don't approve of complaining about the weather. When I found the south Texas heat unbearable, I moved. But honestly, a person in this latitude has a reasonable expectation of a decent snowfall once or twice a winter. And I'm particularly sulky because I missed last year's only good snowfall because I was in Phoenix. The DESERT. My family sweetly tormented me by e-mailing me pictures of themselves building snowmen and having a snowball fight without me. So just between us, I'm DUE.
And since we're being random today, I've sampled five perfumes lately, none of which are suitable for me, but you might enjoy:
*Pretty by Elizabeth Arden. Over-the-top floral. Not offensive, but it didn't change much on the drydown. Sweet bottle.
*Princess by Vera Wang. Cotton candy drydown with a heavy hit of vanilla. A very youthful perfume.
*Jean Paul Gaultier's Ma Dame. I liked it the first two times, but after that I noticed a VERY strong note of black licorice.
*Lolita Lempicka. After the drydown, I couldn't smell anything but vanilla.
*Cynthia Rowley. I honestly cannot remember what it smelled like. Pretty light, innocuous. Probably suitable for someone young.
I've ordered new samples from www.theperfumedcourt.com to try another half dozen fragrances. Great customer service, and it's an inexpensive way to try new perfumes if you can't get to a really good fragrance counter. (The closest GOOD mall is 60 miles away, so I have to be resourceful.)
ETA: Monday morning. No snow. Bah!
