The New Scentsation

Perfume makes me gag. I used to wear a lot of it and made other people sick and did not understand their problem. Now it is my compaint too. I get a lot of magazines because they are a cheap diversion. Mostly I look at the pictures. The cats like the subscription inserts which can be wadded up into toys.
Most of these journals include a number of perfume samples which even when removed from the magazine, leave their essence lingering, giving my perusal a vaguely nauseating effect above and beyond the effects of the drivel offered up as prose.
Strangely, all of the scents smell the same to me. I keep meaning to write a short story where a young woman commits suicide with one of these perfume inserts. She slashes her throat with a fatal paper cut. Live fast, die young, and leave a good smelling corpse, that kind of thing.


  1. Science & Technology Web Awards 2005
    In the year since we last presented these awards, both the world and the Web have changed in dramatic ways.
    Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!

    I have a "ways to make money" site. It pretty much covers "ways to make money" related stuff.

    Come and check it out if you get time :-)

  2. I was entranced trancendentally by the perfume you used to wear. Then, when you gave me a small bottle of it which you had prepared yourself, I wore it most everyday until it was gone. Occaisionally, when walking down the street in some city, I will notice a singular but particular note of it on a woman walking by and will stop and stare at her and remember.


Got something to say? I'd like to hear from you.
