What Perfume Goes With Antsy?

This is quite a week.  I'm so excited that it's here and I can't frigging wait until it's over.

Yeah, one of those.

Big presentation.  Really, really big.  A scary-as-hell, big presentation.

But, for some reason, I'm not scared.  My presentation is done, I know the material well and, let's face it, I get off on performing.

Don't tell - I'm supposed to be the shy one.  

Right now, it's more like I'm...antsy.  And a little hyper.

B-man's got to be loving that.  Especially since I bit his head off earlier. 

See, I was trying on clothes for tomorrow.  This only happens when I'm antsy, by the way.  Usually, before deciding what to wear, I just stand in front of my closet and drool, never actually deciding until the last minute when I throw on my usual black and gray ensemble.

Anywho, I heard B-man coming down the hall and went into another room to avoid him, embarrassed by my antsiness, certain he was headed for his laptop in the office.  But no, he wanted his latest Esquire magazine, which happened to be where I was - of course -  in the Smellie Room.  

So I flashed Irritated Face and said, 'jeez!'  

He's like, 'what - I'm just getting my magazine!' and flashed Chill Out face right back.

This violent encounter threw me off my game and I still have no idea what to wear.  But I need to figure it out, because Mr. Muckety-Muck is flying into town to spend the next two days at our hospital.  

At my invitation.

We will hang out tomorrow, hobnob with my staff and I'll introduce him and smile 'til my face hurts. 

The Best Little Host Ever Known To Mankind.

On Thursday, we'll do it all over again, except both of us will give presentations at a symposium that involves all the other Muckety's in my organization.  

Friday, when everything's over, B-man and I are going to Baby Sis and T's house to hang out and enjoy some French onion soup. 

I fully plan to need a designated driver.  I'd better be sucking up to B-man.

Hmmm...what perfume goes well with antsy?

  1. I'm so sorry about your violent encounter. It sounds terribly traumatic.

    I think Daphne needs to filter you some calming lavender immediately. :)

    Good luck with Mr. Muckety. I'm sure everything will go swimmingly.

  2. Sounds like a great time will be had by all! Best of luck...want to hear all about it...

  3. I dunno... Gris Clair? Which I mention because you enjoy it, not because I do. :)

  4. For me, every perfume has to go with antsy...antsy is my default state ;)

    I hope you have a great time playing Best Little Host. Hopefully my little package will make its way to you very soon, and something in there will help ease the antsy-ness!

  5. Gris Clair is lovely for antsies! (I love it, too!) And anything green does wonders for me...Do you happen to have anything that makes you feel Cool, Calm, Collected and Totally-in-Control?

  6. Chanel no 19! That's where my vote it :)

  7. Hi *jen - yes, it was a major trauma (so glad someone understands!), but somehow, we made it through...

    As soon as I read 'lavender,' I thought of Gris Clair, as others mentioned later. Daphne could definitely use soothing.

    Thanks for your comment!

  8. Hi Mermaid - I've missed you and look forward to hanging out when I'm through this week and you're jet lag free. Be in touch.

  9. Hi Mals - Gris Clair could have been perfect! Thanks for remembering that I like this (I, too, remember that it's not a match for you).

    Really good to see you - thanks for the comment!

  10. JoanElaine, hi! Hosting was fine and I did receive your package, which was lovely! E-mailed to let you know, but realized after receiving your comment that it didn't go through. I gave it another shot this morning...

    The Magie Noir is divine - thanks your generosity!

  11. Hi Tarleisio - Gris Clair is lovely, isn't it? My husband has been wearing it and I love, love, love it on him.

    My go-to, when I need comforting, smart and just right is Jardin en Mediterranee by Hermes. It's my 'desert island' perfume and is perfect more often than any other. Today, it was right as always.

  12. deeHowe, hello! Chanel no.19? Interesting choice. I'm afraid it would have made me crabby, which is not a good mix with antsy. Still, it's a beauty, right?

    Thanks a lot for stopping by!

  13. something calming with lavender rose or aquatic notes for me- lemon is quite shrill I think.

    but also something you like or comforts you I think- for example L'Heure Bleu calms me down even though it's not really the right sort of thing at all!

    good luck with everything
