i went shopping today.  felt the need to treat myself since i skinned my knees this week in a hyper-embarrassing softball accident.  never thought i would say those words, but there it is.  softball is proving to be a rough lover (and into humiliation apparently).  so today i wandered around, dropped off some library books and hit the new  Murale store here in Ottawa.  

never been much of a beauty product hoarder, but i've been coveting my very own bottle of Chanel Allure for at least a decade.  the day has come!  the shea butter is for a somewhat debilitating and prolonged bout of eczema on my fingers and the verbena soap was selected strictly to get over a hundred bucks to score a bit of a discount (and because it smells soooo fresh).

tonight, i'm heading to La Petite Mort Gallery for a friend-of-a-friend's vernissage and then over to the SAW Gallery for the Winchester Warm  CD launch.  should be pretty pretty good.

 it's a lovely day in Canada's capital, but i think the heat wave is getting to people (myself included?).  folks were honking and shaking fists all over downtown today.  time to chill, people - life's not that bad.
