selling all the perfumes.

Just a note to the flist that I'm selling a huge chunk of my Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab perfume collection. Link to my sales page is here: http://coaldustcanary.livejournal.com/461326.html

I'm really trying to move stuff, and I'm open to making deals. If you've ever been interested in BPAL before but never gotten into it, if you give me some idea of your scent "likes" I'd be happy to put together a tester pack for cheap!


Help Us Support Planned Parenthood

Join us in standing up for reproductive health and education. Planned Parenthood, the organization that delivers reproductive health care, sex education and information to millions of people worldwide, has come under fire in the U.S. lately, with many politicians on both state and federal level seeking to end funding (and in a few cases succeeding).

During the month of May, you can send a specially designed Planned Parenthood vgift to your friends to help support this cause. (And if you need someone to send it to, frank is always happy to receive gifts!) There are three variations ($1, $5 and $10) for you to choose from, but they'd all look good on your profile when your friends know that you stand by something so important.


Thank you all for your help in our support for Planned Parenthood. This promotion ends June 1, 2012; LiveJournal is not affiliated with Parent Parenthood. For more information about Planned Parenthood, please visit: http://www.plannedparenthood.org/

fanfic drabble meme.

ASOIAF - A Mind Needs Books
The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.

I will even let you off the hook from posting in your own journal unless you want to.

Please try to stick to fandoms I'm reasonably familiar with!

I watched the premiere of Game of Thrones on Sunday night with wagemage and, overall, I feel very positively about the show, albeit with a few reservations.

My review comments will spoil the episode AND some elements of the novel that parallel the first episode.

there can and will be holiday cards.

WoD - Just Frenzy
Welcome to my mostly-annual post asking for your mailing addresses so that I might send you cards for the holiday season.

For those of you who are new to my friends list: I love sending real mail, and I am addicted to holiday season cards. If you like getting mail, even if you don't think we are super close buddies, and you're comfortable giving me your address, please add it below.

For those of you who are not new to my friends list: You know the drill. Add it, even if you think I have it.


Replies are screened, fear not, so only I will see your address.


game of thrones photos!

WoD - Just Frenzy
Entertainment Weekly has new photos from the Game of Thrones series, which is set to debut in April.

SPOILER ALERT! Note that if you're not familiar with the books, these images (and particularly the descriptive text with them) are very spoilery for things that happen in the first few episodes, including the major reveal at the end of the pilot, so proceed with caution if you don't want to be spoiled!

mp3 player recommendations.

ASOIAF - Bran&#39;s Coma Dream
I'm still working on a lengthy post about the past week, but I also have a question for everyone out there unrelated to my very random life:

About 2 years ago, my "classic" iPod bit the dirt, and I didn't much miss it at the time. I eventually got a great deal on a wee little iPod Mini which I've used when I want to listen to music on the go. However. I would now like to start listening to books on an MP3 player, and I'm pretty sure the mini is too small to cut it. (For instance, GRRM's A Game of Thrones takes up about a gig of space, ripped from something like 40 CDs. Even the non-ripped digital versions to buy are massive.) So, I need to invest in something with a lot of storage space. Is a classic iPod still the way to go, or is there something better I should consider?

someone at Knitpicks.com is one of us.

Scroll down to the different colorways they have available.

Locate the colorway called "Time Traveller".

Click on it.

Read the text in the detail box that pops up.


I believe my next order will include multiple balls of this colorway...
