Admittedly, I'm not crazy about the turtleneck either. Something with a collar and an open neckline would make you look more...approachable.
I can see you in a white starched shirt, but worn very casually with the top few buttons undone and a pair of well-broken-in Levis. Classy, yet comfortable.

Admittedly, I don't expect to be wearing turtlenecks for a long time....at least, not while I'm living in south California.

You've just described my typical summer look for the past 10 years or so - white linen shirt, sleeves rolled up above the elbows, unbuttoned to mid chest, black belt, old bootcut jeans, sandals (bare feet, natch), and including this new essential oil medley I just bought - Malagasy Musk*. Oh, and sunglassess - you cannot not wear them in L.A., it's so bloody glaring bright here.





* Sandalwood, Peru Balsam, Patchouli, Clary Sage, Ambrette Seed, Black Pepper, Oak Moss, Myrrh, Green Mandarin, Buddhawood, Cardamom, Nutmeg, Vetiver, and Ylang Ylang.

I must be psychic, then...or more perceptive than I thought.

A subtle, earthy fragrance base with diverse exotic notes to add interest and complexity. I'm familiar with all the ingredients except the Ambrette Seed. Even without knowing the ingredient proportions, I have a fair idea what it smells like: A glade deep in a primeval forest in a faraway exotic land, unspoiled, sultry, and dark, yet dappled with brilliant flashes of canopy-filtered sunlight here and there.
Is that reasonably close?

This morning I smell mostly like a guy who didn't have time to shower before work. Damn the easter break flew by.

Trep, I have to agree with Scott - not only do you look sexier, but you look more like a guy who knows where he's going and what he wants to do. Maybe it's time to let the little boy look pass on.

No, as stated in the other thread: I´ve seen two, after giving birth.

Exactly.
Giving birth is something I´ll remember for the rest of my life. I´m pretty sure I can recollect every minute of the actual "pushing out" for both of my children. I also remember having to "squeeze out" the afterbirth and believe me: that was so much worse. The important work was done and I wasn´t interested in pushing anymore, I just got so annoyed to the point of being rude. And I can´t blame any pain relief drugs since I didn´t take any, not even laughing gas.
Quote:
The smell of amniotic fluid triggers a deep-down parental urge, and you will forever feel a special protective feeling and attachment to whatever it is you see being born.
Never though about it as chemisty, but of course it must be.
There´s something very special about the scent of a newborn baby. You might think they smell icky, but it´s the most wonderful scent imagined. <3

Too much talk about birth, especially before lunch, time for this thread to die.

Katie Holmes is willing to give a donation, I hear.

I'll have the salt and pepper ready when you get back.
