Where Leonardo travels, his subjects all go too

For Christmas 2013 bunny_hugger gave me, among other things, a present partly for her: a bottle of eau de cologne that marked my first real venture into putting anything on myself with the intent of making me particularly smell like anything. Between my using it principally on days when I'd be with her --- no sense using it if she's going to be in class until the evening by which point it would wear off --- and wasn't planning to exercise or tromp around the attic or something that would wear the odor off it's now only this weekend that I think I've reached the end of it. I must get to the store and re-stock some scent.

Also, my mathematics blog has had another half-dozen posts since the last roundup here, so let me point out the articles in case you missed the daily announcements.

If you want to read these posts nearly directly as they happen, they're on RSS, or you can add them to your Friends page as in the above link, or you can have new WordPress articles mailed to you as they happen, too.
