Bah! [Feb. 27th, 2005|01:06 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
[mood |hungryhungry]

We walked in the rain all the way downtown to the Farmer's Market to find out that it was canceled due to the rain =P There was one lonely produce booth so we bought a few veggies at least =)

And of course, it stopped raining right after we got home, lol.

We really needed the rain though, so that's a good thing.

After lunch I will be painting - you can peek in on me HERE on my webcam, if you like! It's one of my uber-big 24"x30" paintings - so far I just have part of the sky painted and a big blobbery humanoid shape that will hopefully turn into something pretty, hehe. Of course I'm basing it off of the lovely irrimiri, so how could it not be pretty?

Damn you, BPAL! You keep coming out with new scents that I want! And of course, with the usual 5-8 week waiting time, I am getting antsy! I've got at least four outstanding orders, hehehe...

Anyways, I'm hungry and I'm going to eat food and then paint >^___^

I only added irrimiri to my list a little while ago, but she is really nice!
Good luck with the painting.

What did you make for lunch? The Vegtables?

Jasmine, do they sell these perfumes in stores or just online? I can only wear musk, strong french perfume gives me mirgranes. Hot topic should sell Bpal. I brought a mini budda and two asian dragons they are redwood and I sent you an e-mail I did change my order again sorry to a 5x7 of Green Dragonling I love dragons as you know the other the same. Well I think I may have lunch now too. Have a great afternoon painting. P.S. How many books do you have coming out?

Re: Bpal

Hi Sharon! No problem, I'll change it now.

That would be awesome if they would carry BPAL scents at retail stores. Right now though they just sell online mostly. They are a smaller company and make everything by hand.

Hey Jasmine! I just thought I'd let you know that on the Yahoo messenger it says your "Away from computer" instead of "View My webcam" but I can see your there painting ;) P.s. I e-mailed you back =D ((((((HUGS)))))

Woohoo! Thank you Carrie!!! >^___^< I will let you know how things progress ;)

Argh - I don't know what to do about Yahoo - I've been having problems lately with so many random people I don't even know using the Yahoo IM to IM me while I'm working saying "Hello? Why won't you talk to me? What, you're too famous to talk to your fans?" and getting kind of mean about it. I want people to understand that I only log in to Yahoo to broadcast my webcam, and that I'm not sitting at my computer when I'm logged in, that I'm away in the other room painting. Y'know? So I thought I'd change the message to reinforce that I'm not at my computer or available for chatting. I don't know what to do! Sometimes when people keep IMing me it makes my computer lock-up, and it makes me have to re-start my webcam and everything, which kicks off the viewers. I wish there was a way I could just broadcast my camera and not accept the IMs from people, yet still allow them to login to see the webcam........

Thank you!! Ooooh! I didn't realize it until I got a huge wad of comments mailed to me, hehe. I can't believe it - I had a mod's choice and every single comment was pleasant! Usually there are at least some snarky remarks - I can't believe it!

Oh my, let me see - I like a lot of them, hehe. I like "non-perfume-like" scents of very unusual things - "Seance" is a good one for that - it smells like damp boards in an old dusty house, hehe. I also like food-like scents, things with coconut, dizzying florals, ocean/aquatic scents, etc. I've got a lot of big bottles ordered up at the site:

*Storm Moon
*Ophelia*Black Pearl
*New Orleans
*Bon Vivant
*Chaste Moon
and a TON of imps, hehe!

I like a lot of the Limited Edition scents too - I got an imp of Rose Red in a swap a couple of days ago (it was a limited edition scent from before Christmas) and I love it so much - it smells like fresh cut roses - unlike any rose perfume I've ever smelled. And of course, it's not available any more since it was a Limited Edition =P

I have a silly question that I'm sorry to bother you with, but I just recently switched from using Internet Explorer to Mozilla Firefox and now I can't see your webcam (which I'm slightly addicted to, lol). Do you know what could be causing this? I would love to see this new painting you are working on!

Hi Heather!

Yahoo's webcam software won't work with Firefox, unfortunately - it doesn't support that system =(

Oh! Actually they ship all over the world - check out the FAQ http://www.blackphoenixalchemylab.com/faq.html !

Their shopping cart CCnow system doesn't work for non-US orders, but if you select the Paypal option it will let you =)
