Out of the blue special edition of "What does Amanda Smell Like?"

I have been mixing it up with Dean Winchester... Semi-literally. I have a vial of Demon's Bane a scent inspired by the character of Dean Winchester on Supernatural. It isn't exactly what I imagined Dean to smell like (Hoppes gun oil, leather, hotel soap, coffee) but it is nice. It is leather, incense, coffee and apple pie. I always thought it needed a little more umpf, or unhf really. So I have been layering with some of my ZOMGsmells scents.

Yesterday it was Demon's Bane and the clovey goodness of Down Quark. I call it Dean Chewing Clove Gum ... which, if you have read the earlier posts in this sequence, you may remember I have very strong views about. I have great difficulty resisting boys who chew clove gum (or who wear cherry ChapStick...mmmm).

Today I am combining Demon's Bane with Zeppelin to the Moon...completely appropriate! It brings a little bit of metal and machine (the impala?) to the dark sweetness of Demon's Bane. I call this combo Sitting in the Impala, Listening to Zeppelin, Full of Pie .

I smell fantastic.

WORD NERDS!

I love all of these words! 

+Bobbi Jo Woods sent this special gift my way, and I learned 7 new words in the process. 

One of the words, ironically Laginappe  the word the list claims means "special gift" is not being used very precisely. I love this word. It is Acadienne (Cajun) and it is a "freebie" or "guest gift." 

Ineffable is one of my favorite words of all times. Ineffability is the bane of poets and the reason for our existence. 
English is often cited as For those learning, trying to master the intricacies of the English Language can often pose more than few hurdles. For starters there are many words that are pronounced the same but have different meanings

Word-nerds and Map Lovers uniting to explain how English loots other languages and generally makes a nonsensical (albiet lovely) mess of itself). 

Awesome!
 
Some fun graphics for all y'all, all about (not aboot, nobody says that) English: http://www.vox.com/2015/3/3/8053521/25-maps-that-explain-english

If nothing gets done at G+ today it's because I accidentally pinged +Yonatan Zunger on this whoops there see I just did that.
From Beowulf to Wikipedia, here's how English grew, spread, and changed.

I was wondering how they got the terrific shading and color of that Scanning Electron Microscope image above of the Boll Weevil.
SEM's take a black and white images, and they have to be colorized.

From the creator of the image:
“The images start as colour digital files from a stereoscope light microscope,” explains Daniel. “I carefully arrange LED lighting, small reflectors and diffusers, in order to achieve a portrait-like effect. Next, the same area of the specimen is imaged with a scanning electron microscope (SEM) because this microscope has much greater depth of field and thus increased sharpness for the entire specimen. In the end, I composite the colour images from the stereo microscope with the monochromatic images from the SEM to complete the portrait, therefore combining realistic colour with the detail of electron microscope imaging.”

Very cool.

Stuck in my head, now (probably not) stuck in yours.

I am the tension, you are the tightrope
(Not true. I am the strung arrow, you are the limb's give.) 

Even in the kitty jail, you were calico! (You were calico the whole time, brother... the whole time.)
