Insomnia and Where It Can Lead
Consumer warning: This is a dull post. If I were you, I'd skip it and go straight down to Today's fragrance. You'll find more real content in that.
Here at Chez Chic, it's apparently Walt Disney Week, when insomnia can lead you to looking up Snow White on Wikipedia where you learn ...
"There are numerous popular ideas as to the presence of occult significance or symbolism within the movie, Snow White, mostly centered around the Dwarves themselves.
"For example, one theory holds that the seven dwarves correspond to the seven chakras, and that Snow White represents consciousness moving through them.
"Other ideas are less philosophically complex, such as correspondences to the altered states of consciousness inherent in the use of certain drugs.
"In one theory, Snow White is cocaine, which causes exhaustion (Sleepy, Dopey), mood swings (Happy/Grumpy), allergies (Sneezy) and alteration of personality (Bashful)."
Insomnia can lead you to google-images looking for the Sleepy Dwarf, to see if he really looks like a drug addict.
It can lead you to the medicine cabinet where you ferret out a couple of tablets of diepenhydramine (that's perfectly legal over-the-counter benadryl, she said defensively) just so you can get the image of Sleepy Dwarf snorting an illicit substance out of your brain.
It can lead you to thinking: Ick. Is nothing sacred?
Today's fragrance: Sarah Jessica Parker's Lovely via Cynthia's patented YakMail. "It made me love it, I didn't want to do it, I didn't want to do it." It's very pretty, darn it. Notes of lavender, orchid and amber mingle with apple martini (!), paper whites and musk. Ok, what my limited nose can discern are lavender, amber and musk. And, again, it's very VERY pretty. Thank you, C.
In drydown, Lovely becomes a very soft Sung Sha with an undernote of amber.
