Having spent a very enjoyable day yesterday with my friend David​, where we went to the Celts exhibition at the British Museum, I'm spending today on preparing a Call of Cthulhu game for my friends for the 7th November.

I'm using Realm Works​ software to prepare a series of shocks and horrors for them. They'll love it. Of course they will. Murder and Death Incorporated are always good for a laugh. Ghouls are good; of course they are.

In other (rather unlikely) news, I actually spent some money on make-up. I discovered just before attending the British Fantasy Convention that 24 hour lipstick actually lasts five days if you test it on your hand. That makes it worthwhile buying in my view.

I never liked old fashioned lipstick which tasted peculiar and lasted about a nano second on your lips. Modern 24 hour lipstick (this stuff is from Maybelline) actually lasts the time it says it does on the pack, if not slightly longer, and doesn't taste of anything. Score!

CAn't imagine you with lipstick!

I think I may have tried it once or twice as a teenager, but certainly not since then.

The only 'lipstick' I like is Burt's Bees tinted lip balm, because it tastes like (lightly minty) lip balm. I really hate regular lipstick, though!

Thanks for the tip -- L'Oreal just reformulated my lovely dark rose to a neon pink (same name, same number) and I'm looking for another long-last lipstick . . .
