Contradiction in Terms
You say to-may-toe; I say toh-mah-tah. Deal with it.

Today is Video Games Day.

And Rei's new blog look is up! Designed by me, of course. Check it out.

scents and sensibility
Wandering around the Greenbelt mall, I managed to pick up three stalkers in two different stores.

Granted, I did finally buy my Clean perfume with the intent of... well, smelling attractive (Sounds weird, dunnit?), but I hadn't bargained on some shaggy-haired guy trailing me around Powerbooks, sniffing conspicuously over my shoulder.

The other guy was more subtle, or so he thought. His strategy was to keep accidentally-on-purpose winding up in the same aisle as me, approaching from the opposite end of the bookshelves. Clever, eh? I probably wouldn't have noticed, either, except that he made a practice of picking up every book I looked at and pretending to examine it assidously. I figured he was pretending by the way he frowned ferociously while 'reading' the back of a book which I knew for a fact had no cover blurb.

I considered confronting the two bozos, but with what, exactly? Neither sniffing nor book-fondling is exactly a criminal offense (though perhaps the latter should be). So I chatted up the friendly security guard until the stalkers faded away on their own; then I beat feet out of there.

Comfortingly, the third stalker--in the First Aid beauty store--turned out to be a gay guy who just wanted to know what my perfume was called so he could get some for himself.

Nikki Alfar is really not as sexy as El's illustration would have you believe... but she doesn't mind if you think of her that way.
