So giving that website that robbed me blind a good taste of silent anger because they bloody deserve it, I do love when they try and save face but that ain't going to work on me they better fess up and give back what they stole from me made them have to go back from August 2022 to most recently.

They owe me a lot and if they don't I'll inform my bank and they'll help me get it back, I'm out for blood today.

lt's still too dark to tell yet, but we have either a hard frost or a light dusting of snow here this morning. l'm synching in Like This for a long shift today.

Exactly the same here :). Closer inspection confirmed ours is a very heavy frost although the light snow could still be a possibility over the weekend ❄️

Hope you feel better soon, Mike 🤞

CharonLRdraws, go for the jugular (y)

Joining today's synch with Comme Des Garcons - Avignon.

Over the years I've had people walk over me, now it's just the stance of don't F with me because whoever does will likely regret it. Had someone in my Primary School do that it didn't end well for them same applies here too.

@CharonLRdraws - Good luck! You got this!
@mikeperez23 - Take care of yourself. Hope you feel better soon.

SOTD - Estee Lauder Beautiful Magnolia
This scent maintains a lighter version of the EL indolic jasmine gardenia with civet musk signature that seems to weave throughout this line.
My suspicion, if Beautiful Magnolia and Bronze Goddess are any indication, is that they have lightened up on the civet and indoles in the 21st century fragrances.
This week has been an interesting education into one of the grand houses of American perfumery.
I get why they are so respected and also now have a better understanding of why I have historically found their scents challenging.
Time, age, and reformulation have made Estee Lauder more wearable for me - even if I am still more likely to reach for my indie oils, niche samples, Dior and Guerlain.

We're seeing a three-night opera production called The Tristan Project.

Wow, that sounds almost exhausting. Three nights is a real undertaking for an audience.. And I thought two nights of Angels in America was big.

I was a little baffled by the Friday Sync since I don't burn candles, but settled on Aziyade by Parfum d'Empire for its kaleidoscopic Persian spices and dried fruits. It seems like it could have been an ambient candle.

Hello everyone :) I have now finally had my last nightshift this turn. It was, quiet, but I felt increasingly ill with chills, stuffed nose, runny nose, headaches etc.... I slept most of the day and got up now. I still luckily have a sense of smell, so I decided to synch in Timbuktu.

Inee, are your patients and staff still wearing face masks?

No, there are no Covid restrictions in Norway anymore(unless you're actually positive) . If a patient gets symptoms of a cold he/she is tested and isolated in the patient room until not feverish or negative test. This is probably not covid. My bf had the same kind of symptoms a while back. It wasn't covid :)

@mikeperez23 and @ineespenes I hope you both feel better soon. @kewart, I loved your Alsace photos. You take great trips!

No atomized scent today, I'm flaking dry skin everywhere so I'm wearing handfuls of Narciso body lotion. It happens to me every year at about this time, I get so dry and flaky.
