Every year when I fill out my tax return, I try to be prepared for the shock when calculating my estimated taxes. And every year the shock is bigger than I thought it would be. I suppose this is no going to get better the older I get? Unless I’m going back to university… or become unemployed… or get married… or at least have a kid.
Great choices…


Always looking for the perfect perfume for me, I found another very enticing one:
Black Orchid by Tom Ford.

The webpage describes the notes:

Top Notes:
Black Truffle, Ylang, Bergamot, Black Currant

Middle Notes:
Tom Ford Black Orchid, Florals, Fruit accord, Lotus Wood

Bottom Notes:
Patchouli, Incense, Vetiver, Vanilla and Sandalwood

As you can guess its a rather warm, dark, woody scent with sweet highlights. I think the commercial puts it all nicely together. Though I’m not even close to that kind of grand dame, I love the scent. I guess, I’ll even go for another bottle…
