So, since I haven't bought a significant amount of BPAL for a while, I decided to be bad today and loot a few bottles from the Lab/Trading Post. from the Lab I got:
Robotic Scarab
Embalming Fluid
and from the TP I got a bottle of Spanked:Res :D
Yeah, I know...like I *really* need moar smellies. XD

In non-perfume stuff, I had a really fantastic time at Mythic Faire. The steampunk Ghostbuster costume was a hit, even though by the end of Saturday bits were falling off, and I even won Best Steampunk Female in the costume contest! :D I got to meet Abney Park and get my picture taken with Captain Robert and with Nathaniel (who said he loved the colours of my dreads! *dies of squee*) and got the entire band's autograph. They played at the masquerade friday night and were suitably awesome. (and pretty much had to be chased off the stage due to going over their set time by about an hour. XD) Opening for them was SJ Tucker, who is lovely and incredibly talented and utterly hilarious. (Psst...check her out, you will NOT be disappointed! http://www.skinnywhitechick.com/) I treated myself to a nice pair of goggles while I was there, which I will have to get a photo of soon. They're solid metal and leather with just slits in the lenses to see out of. I'm tired and sore but it is so worth it for the time I had. :D :D

also in the "Wow my weekend was great" department, I sent a message about the DVD set of Sherlock which I STILL have not received (I ordered it in February D:) and got back a very nice and apologetic message saying that they will be sending me out a new set by next day air. Also, I should soon be getting this shirt: http://www.teefury.com/archive/1106/Gargle_Blaster/, which I ordered on the 4th. (Yes, I've been horrendously self-indulgent this last week or two. XP But it's a HHGTTG shirt, I couldn't resist!) It combines sci-fi geekery with alcohol, what more can you ask for? Oh, and in case you haven't read The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy (or any of the other five books of the trilogy), the shirt is a reference to the effect that drinking a Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster has on the victim drinker("like having your brains smashed out by a slice of lemon, wrapped 'round a large gold brick").

Damn that's a huge order o.o I'm placing one of epic proportion soon myself. Philologus is awesome, I need to loot moar.

You need to loot Manilus Hurled from the Rock. It smells so much like Rivet.Goth it's scary. But with a manly musk.

Congrats on winning the contest :D It was an awesome costume and well diserved :3 Sounds like it was lots of fun.

That shirt is awesome.

I know!o.o I'm kinda surprised at myself. usually I buy *maybe* three bottles at a time. Ooh, what are you getting? I really really like the sound of Philologus and I am hoping it is as awesome on me as it could be. Old book/library smell=win.

Manilus Hurled from the Rock? *makes note* Anything that smells like Rivet.Goth is great for me.

Thanks! :D It really was a ton of fun; it makes me wish we had more stuff like that con happen here.

I agree. I only check teefury once every day or three, because they don't often have designs I'm interested in, so I am *so* glad I checked on the day these were up.

I usually save and get a minimum of 6 or 7 to justify the shipping o.o I'm going to be getting all Lupers since they come down in a couple days D: So far it's at

Manilus Hurled from the Rock x3
Male Nude, Arms Upstretched x2
Loosening of the Obi
White Chocolate martini
Valentine of Rome

Ooo Philologus is awesome. It's got a nice strong Parchment note. It's officially my favorite book smell ever.

I love manilus because of that. It makes me happy because it's not impossible to get more of so I'm not terrified to wear it ><
