And hooray for that. It's 63° F right now, and I am happy to have a leetle cold front visiting. Plus, it's raining, so I don't have to go water my plants. The less I have to do at home, the better, because I am swamped at work.

My very first looseleaf publication builds on Friday, and of course, the idiot lawyers who are authoring it didn't get their final pages to me until mid-day today. It's four volumes with a CD, and I have to get it all done tomorrow so I can put it together on Friday. I'm seriously tempted to go smack these guys!

*deep breath*

Instead of thinking about work, I'm going to think about fall, which has always been my favorite season. I've always loved the look of the Harvest Moon, so I ordered the 2008 version of that scent from BPAL. As my darling Kogi always says, "It could smell like accord of ass and I'd still buy it" just for the associations with autumn. I want to smell like a fat round gold thing on a cold night!

Speaking of BPAL and associations, I keep running into phoenixes. I love BPAL (Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab) perfumes, my current favorite bath & body product scent is Phoenix from Julphia, our proprietary software at work is called Phoenix, I pass an office or something for the University of Phoenix every day on my way to work, and a new second-hand car dealership just opened up down the street from me called Phoenix Auto Sales. I can hear my little brother saying it's just coincidence (Hi, Captain Crossword!), but I can't shake the feeling that maybe it's more than that...

Ooooh. I was just looking at a map, and there's a WHOLE CITY called Phoenix. Creepy.

Sending strength to get you through the next couple of days. *HUGS*

P.S. Check your e-mail. ;)

Well, the metaphysical-nut in me says that there's a damn good reason you keep running into the phoenix... ^_~ But I won't bore ya with the explanation, hon.

It is popping up to remind you of your inner strength and how many times you have sunk into despair or had health issues yet you emerged whole and full of life and strength.

Or you are just becoming batshit crazy.

*runs for life*

and on the topic of phoenix...guess where the much-afeared sock zombies come from?

Thanks Rob, and I have, just haven't had the energy to reply.

Fluffykins, thank you for the metaphysical ideas--I have much to think about.

Z, what do you mean, becoming? *grin*

O-kitten, I'm glad someone else loves fall, and you're right, the sock zombies come from that city that my smarty-arsed brother mentioned.
