Thanks to everyone who discussed on my last post about perfumes. Today I went to Les Senteurs and tried lots of things, and came away with a bottle of Amyris and a couple of other samples. I may need to try out Bloom and get more samples of other things to try. But I really like this one.

The lady I met was younger than me, really friendly, happy to geek out about the smells and teach me stuff, and is the grand-daughter of the founder and is a singer who's doing this to fund that, which is pretty cool.

Been spending all my free time on DW development lately, which is always fun for as long as I can sustain it.

Will had a very enjoyable if low-key birthday. Hard to believe he's twelve. His major present was a new Windows 10 laptop, which he can use for both homework and games. The inherited Windows PC we had set up for gaming is old and rather flakey, and the old Mac laptop he was using for homework was also starting to fail. With any luck, his new computer will last him through most of high school. (oh God I'm old)

Of course we saw the LEGO Batman Movie. It wasn't as great as the LEGO Movie, but it was still pretty great. And thanks to the whims of fate and my mom, we now own 3 Pink Power Batgirl minifigures, for round-the-clock pretend patriarchy smashing.

Next week is Connor's birthday (plans for which are still up in the air) and the annual local handbell festival.

I never posted these here because they're all sketchy and unfinished, and I have yet to actually do a finished thing despite starting a couple times. But there's been more people talking about Raksura on my circle lately, so I thought some of you all might enjoy.

(Honestly I'm still struggling with how Raksura biology works, but I think the colored ones are getting pretty close.)
