Intrepid scent researcher Rubi here. I had occasion to be in a mall today and popped into the local branch of Stripey Beauty Emporium. For research purposes, I spritzed myself with a bit of something called “Cannibis Santal.” (Translation: pot + sandalwood.) A more accurate handle would be “Eau d’Ancien Hippy.” And now I can’t get the dadgummed stuff off my skin. Feh.

On a more delightful note, my pedicure now matches my kitty. Zouzou appears to think this makes me extremely cool. Or she thinks I’m silly. It’s hard to tell with cats.

Color: Essie's "Master Plan" (for world domination by gray kitties?)
