I think the people at Guerlain might have been taken aback by the conversation in the car on the way to school this morning in which there was some discussion about the lovely Acqua Allegoria floral perfume I was sporting. It was not, actually, my intention to smell like Disneyland. Nor was it my intention to smell, as the perfume critic/child said hastily, when he noticed my shocked look, like the “outside of Disneyland,” as though a little distance from the House of the Mouse might make that comparison less troubling.
But at least they meant it as a compliment, which is how I’m going to take it .
This slight post, you must realize, is just an excuse to tag more planners. (Ah, Stefanie, you thought maybe I was not going to tag you? Wrong. I have a Tag Plan. It involves a happy half hour browsing through my blogroll and thinking about how lucky I am to know so many smart, funny, impressive people before choosing a group of them at random to browbeat into saying a word or two about how they plan something, anything, that matters to them. The holidays. Building a huge office building. Finishing a novel. Discovering the source of the Nile. Getting a poem out into the world.)
meeta, whose blog was a place where I got to write about my obsession with packed lunches, before I discovered I couldn’t keep that up and breathe at the same time.
If you have ever run out of things to read, all you really have to do is consult the right hand side of dark orpheus‘s blog. There is an awful lot of reading going on over there. Naturally, I would like to know how all that gets done.
Jana, who draws and paints almost every day. Lovely, lovely watercolors and sketches. Some days you do not want words. And then you go here. I wonder how someone who is so visual makes a plan.
I realize this is only four blogs, but what wonderful blogs they are!
