I just bought myself a bottle of Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle on ebay for a steep discount. But it's sealed, so I still get the pleasure of breaking the cellophane off the box and the little wax glob from the knot on the bottle. A big percentage of any good cosmetic experience is really the packaging. This I believe. And I'm so excited about this little pictoral a woman made on the way they seal the bottles:

Here. Yay!

Being a non smoker is pretty great. You can smell things.

Most of the time it's great. In the case of Coco Mademoiselle it's great.

It's not great when your DOG POOPS ON THE COUCH while you're out. Our apartment stinks and the dog is grounded. This could have been prime cuddling time tonight and she had to go and ruin it.

Allo. Happy Saturday.

Today was spring shave down day for our little lamb. This morning I dropped her off at the groomer.

And went for a walk around the neighborhood. I stopped at the last ever homo yardsale. Got some good cds. Mostly old Cure and REM that I've only had on cassette until now. There was also tons of Madonna, if anyone's in the market.

Then I went to the bank to get some rolls of quarters for laundry, but that's not worth a picture.

Flower shop. I like these white things on sticks. Dogwood. I think I'd like to use those for our wedding. We like sticks. Sticks with flowers are even better. Dogwoods. I wonder if they're seasonal.

Also taking a lot of pictures of dormers. Shed dormers, cape cod dormers, triplet dormers... There is a house we want to buy, but only if it's possible to add dormers to the roof. Considering every house like it in the neighborhood seems to have had dormers added to the roof at some point, I'm thinking it's GOT to be possible, and probably not too outlandish in costs, as so many others before us have gone this route.


Non? That one seems like an incredibly stupid idea. Why make three?

This kind seems to make the most sense, and is what I'd like to ask the architect about:

No bumping heads with a shed dormer like that, right? Hopefully the answers come quickly and easily.

By day's end, dog was 10lbs lighter & is real happy to be back on mah bed:

How cute is that thing? Really!

Check it out. Blog facelift. Doesn't it make you feel like you're witnessing something organic? How novel, right?

Man I really want a new house to paint & make curtains for. HTML modification alone doesn't cut it for me.

Ugh. Today felt like a disaster. I do not remember how to handle a hangover. But hey, Friday night was great fun.

Here are some ducks at that great grocery store in Milford.
