30 min, 5.7 mi.
Total: 71.9 Crossed the river at Buckleberry Ferry, now heading towards Crickhollow.

Forgot to bike yesterday. Realized it late in the evening, and I knew I'd enver get to sleep if I got on it, so ... oh well. Did 30 min today to partially make up for it. :)

IT'S NOT THE FUCKING FRAGRANCE THAT'S INSTILLING THE ENERGY. IT'S WHATEVER CHEMICAL YOU FUCKERS PUT IN IT THAT'S MAKING IT TINGLE SO BAD I FEEL LIKE I'M IN A FUCKING SNOWSTORM.

It's not caused by ginger because there is no real ginger or verbena in here. I know because I have the Curse of Lemon Pledge and both ginger and verbena turn to the scent of Lemon Pledge. This would feel amazingly good in the middle of a heatwave, but it's fucking February and it's NOT GOOD RIGHT NOW.

I believe I shall be putting this away until, say, July.

And if it doesn't get any better soon, I'm going back into the shower and GETTING IT OFF ME.


ETA: The culprit has been IDed! Menthoxypropanediol, which according to this page, in a Vaseline solution, which is basically what this scrub is - a goopy-type thing with sugar in it - is twice as strong as menthol, and lasts twice as long. It's almost compltely gone now, 1.5 hours after the shower. Yay.
