Very nice, I think I would like your apartment. Love the paintings.

Oh god, I slept for like 12 hours. My jaw hurts and my whole body is sore.
I vow not to stay up all weekend ever again. That sucked. Ugh.

Don't worry, it will get better. Intriguing new avatar. I'm glad you posted what it was, and the larger picture. I was puzzling. I like all those candles and mirrors. But only as a concept. I am too fire-phobic to go that route myself. At least I can enjoy, vicariously.

I should probably be more afraid of fire than I am. But honestly I've been a candle hoarder since middle school. I like huge glowing displays and dripping wax and flickering flames. In the picture, you can also partially see the silver goblet with all the used matches in it. I periodically set that on fire when it gets full (it's actually about due now). Smells super good, like a bonfire, and feels exciting and cathartic. Lets off a lot of smoke, though.
Here's another view of the same table. You can also see the incense box I painted.
And here's some blurry pictures of other areas of my bedroom.
(I was showing off the bowl for street cred after I saw the same one on Caprica.)
(Those things are actually all sitting on a silver platter now, but I don't have a more recent picture to prove this.)
My kingdom for a decent camera. I have to use my crappy phone camera and computer webcam to photograph everything. It's one of many things I would like to save up for.
Also, do you have any idea how hard it is to find unscented candles? More difficult than one would probably assume. I like my candles to smell like melted wax. That's a scent too. Can you imagine an entire table of scented candles burning at once? You'd need a gas mask just to walk in the room. Yuck.

Beeswax is my favorite. Not only is it appropriately earthy-crunchy Primal, they have a lovely sweet smell that's not overpowering.

Beeswax is awesome. I wish I could afford it!

I usually steal from my parents collection, which was mostly taken from various church functions. Religious supply sites/shops probably carry thin beeswax candles (which, if carefully softened by hand, can be braided, looks so cool).
Beeswax Candles, Pure Beeswax Candles, Orthodox Church Candles
Awr. I guess they aren't as cheap as I hoped they'd be

I go for those religious pillars in the glass jars sometimes. I couldn't be more atheist, but I like the way they look. Also they're dirt cheap and you can buy them at the grocery store.

Ok, I don't feel so weird buying all those things up in the grocery store anymore. Yes, they're for religious purposes but I just think they're pretty, and I'm weird and I like candles and incense in the bathroom at all times.

Okay, I finally scheduled a dentist appointment for Thursday.. I have been meaning to do that for, oh... years? I mean, this is the person who let an infected, impacted wisdom tooth sit in her mouth for 6 months. Yeah. Anyway, I figured it was time to go because I am really worried I have a cavity between my bottom front teeth, and that's not good. At the very least, I need a cleaning badly. I haven't been to the dentist in like 5 years.
Also, holy shit. Today was a loose skin day. And, I decided I should probably wear a bra during waking hours from now on to try and encourage my breast skin to shrink up. I don't know if it'll help or not, but I suppose it couldn't hurt. So I've been doing that the last couple days. (I hate it, honestly, but I will do it if it can possibly help.)
Felt lightheaded a lot today, so I ate a lot. Hopefully I will feel better tomorrow.
Carb-up is still on for this weekend. Oh, and I'm going to a ren fest on saturday. It's Celtic weekend, so I'm looking forward to all the big hairy men in kilts. I'm also hoping to find a blacksmith with reasonably-priced weapons. We'll see.
