Sandy, the only Estee Lauder perfume I can remember from my youth, and that's going back a bit, smelled like violets. There was a girl I used to know who wore it all the time. I had teenage dreams about her. She was absolutely beautiful. Please don't destroy my fantasies and memories by telling me that that was what she used.|

Rest assured, it wasn't Youth Dew that the young lady of your dreams wore - no violet in it.
Youth Dew: Top notes: Orange, Bergamot, Peach, Aldehydes, Middle note : Clove, Rose, Ylang-Ylang, Cinnamom, Base notes: Amber, Tolu, Patchouli, Peru Balsam
I know, too much time on my hands.

Too funny, Clare, and you nailed all the ingredients, I trust with some help from Google? Help us all IF you 'just know' that!|
Yes, Bob, rest assured. That childhood memory has not been tarnished and your crush from long ago still smells sweetly of violets.;)

Sherry, your lovely cat is most welcome to come and sit on my keyboard. I do miss having a cat making a nuisance of itself.|
Peeve of today is parcel delivery companies that believe that all households still have nice little housewife who has nothing better to do than to stay indoors between 8 am - 6 pm to receive a parcel.

No Google was necessary. However, I cannot divulge my terrible secret as to how I retrieved that info in under 60 seconds.
We fragrance junkies are a secretive bunch.

Little posts like:|
"What/who are you talking about?" - Can you not find out? If you can find a website, surely you can find a search engine?
"I don't like them." - Thanks for telling us. Is that it? Care to say why now?
"I dunno LOL." - Why on earth would anyone consider this a valid or amusing contribution?

People stepping on the heel of your shoe so it comes off or hurts, especially when they don't notice they've done it or don't apologize.|

Just noticed this board, where do I start, hmmm, let me see.|
No. 1. Peeve is arrogant/ignorant or just plain rude people.
People who don't acknowledge you've just gone out of your way to hold open a door for them, even going so far as to avoid eye contact.
People in public who assume everyone within 50m wants to hear their mobile/cell phone conversation. (Particularly annoying during a romantic dinner or on public transport).
People talking all the way through a movie.
Drunks at sporting venues who hold up signs that block the view of 20 people seated behind them.
Plenty more, but I'll stop for now.

I hate it when people ANSWER mobile phones when they are out with me. Unless someone is dying or you need to save the world - it can wait.|

What is worse you are being served in a shop. The phone rings and they leave you and go and answer the phone.|

An energy company has been phoning me every day for three weeks to persuade me to switch to them. The phone usually rings four times, occasionally five. It takes me that long to walk to the phone. |
JR Ewing answered his phone before it rang. How many normal people can do that?

I originally put a space between Mr Ewing's initials, but the nanny filter spotted the "R" and "detected" chatspeak. |

Mine would be my audition last night. Being in "The Sound of Music" is a life-long dream of mine. I woke up yesterday with the worst sore throat I've ever had and croaked through my audition.|
