Doesn't that look nice, all clean and smooth? So much better. And now here's the After After:
It's not as bad as the original Before picture, but nearly. And the worst part is, I didn't put that stuff there. Those are Legos put there by Paul and Rob and William, a mask put there by William, school papers put there by Rob, magazines put there by Paul, etc. I know The F1y L@dy says that if your family doesn't cooperate with your clean-up ideas, you should go ahead and do all the clean-up for them, but I say SCREW THAT!
The Flying Mum tagged me for a "7 Songs I've Been Enjoying Lately" meme. I'm supposed to include links to clips, but apparently I am too dim to do that: I tried copying The Flying Mum's idea of using Rhapsody, but couldn't make it cooperate with me. I am failing this meme.

I'd like to start a meme of my own, if I may do that and I don't see why I mayn't. It's a perfume meme. List three (or whatever--we're casual in this meme) perfumes that are important to you, or have memories associated with them, or that you currently love, and say why.
Charlie (Revlon)-- I wore this most of the way through high school, and I still have a bottle of it. I remember how appealing the ads were to me: beautiful girls in tough pinstriped suits, and, if I remember correctly, the idea that under their tough career exteriors they were wearing lacy lingerie. That concept makes me barf a little now, but I loved it as a teenager.
Sand & Sable (Coty)-- I wore this during college. I still like it, but I can't smell it without thinking of a relationship that ended very badly, and so I haven't worn it since.
La Chasse Aux Papillons (L'Artisan)-- This is one of my current favorites, and the first very expensive perfume I've owned. The way I found it is a little embarrassing: I read in US Weekly magazine that some celebrity liked it. The way she described it ("like fresh-cut flowers") so intrigued me that I went online and bought a sample of it (I like Luscious Cargo for samples and also for their fun, cool site), and I loved it and now I have a whole entire expensive French bottle of it and it makes me feel special and pretty and not-frumpy to use it.
So! There's my very own meme! And I tag ALL of you! Yes, ALL of you! You are ALL tagged! Well, all of you with blogs. All of you who have blogs and also wear perfume. Go forth and do my bidding!
