my occasional musings on life, love, art, perfume ... what else is there?

Because of ... That Way That I Have

Every once in a while, that mood slips over me ... that mood that successfully keeps me out of large groups of women in active competition ... that mood that makes my teeth hurt and jaw ache any time I am around social climbers or pseudo-intellects for any extended period of time ... the mood that forestalled any gains I might have made as a sorority princess or beauty contestant ...

...that mood that makes me want to scream OH FOR GOD'S SAKE, GET OVER YOURSELF!! YOU ARE NOT HALF THE HOTNESS YOU THINK YOU ARE!

And then it recedes. The calm of my psyche is restored. I am once again kind. And gentle. And empathetic. Feminine in every sense of the word.

Oh it is sooo true.
Of course that is very easy for me to say...because I am quite a beauty! Anyone will tell you, just ask me (you see...sassy).
BTW L'Artisan has a new fragrance under wraps that will be of a limited edition. Now, if you wonder how I know, My dear friend Avrile is their East Coast Account Executive and was here tonight telling me about it. She is bringing over an article about it over the weekend, so I'll tell you more about it then.
