how to chace a wild goose

Remember the goose is more afraid of you that you are of being bitten. Therefore, use your bod to steer the goose where you will.

Close all appropriate openings to make sure the goose can't go farther into the situation.

Get a broom or other long item to chase the goose.

Stand in a place where if the goose runs away, you can trap it.

Slowly move in, watching the goose, to make sure it responds in the correct direction to your movements. Use the broom's simple presence as additional 'motivation.' Remember, the goose doesn't necessarily know what you or the broom are, so it's simply afraid.
cliches from poems

absence makes the heart grow fonder

afraid of one's shadow (Shakes)

against the grain (Shakes)

albatross around one's neck

all ears

all hell breaks loose

a poor thing but my own (Shakes)

as luck would have it (Shakes)

one fell swoop (shakes)

ok, discontinuing Shakespeare

beat one's brains out (verse play)

****beauty is only skin deep****

bee in one's bonnet

best-laid schemes (belated robert burns' day)

be that as it may

better half
reading catherine the great's memoirs, selected letters, blurbed by author of stalin and young stalin!!! (and poetmkin, that's why the blurb) simon sebag montifiore

this is for third trilogy in confiteor
didn't find one book about early modern women artists and makeup

bought some serge lutens makeup

packaging copy (English only; available in 10 languages)

Guess the product?

Beauty essential, delicate touches. Invisible dream, radiant, splendid, sublime.

Ha! All of them.

Here is another non-makeup Serge Lutens product packaging copy:

_____ is a stimulant of the senses, a tonic for the spirit. _____ is impalpable, a substance, a concentration, a contour.

It is our own shadow.

It is a luxurious mirage, our transparency, a majestic choreography, a kind of inner palace, an architecture of exquisite crystal.
