We Got Our Noses On George Takei’s Punnily-Named Perfume

You might have noticed that we don’t really do a lot of perfume reviews on The Mary Sue. Or any. That’s our sister site Styleite‘s thing. But when we were offered the chance to review Eau My, George Takei‘s foray into perfumery, we couldn’t say no. Could you? So, after a quick primer from Styleite on how the heck you even review perfume in the first place, we went around the office with a sample and asked for opinions.

George Takei Has a Perfume, And It’s Called “Eau My”

If you’re wondering what George Takei’s official perfume smells like, according to the description on Amazon there are notes of mandarin zest, Italian bergamot, night-blooming jasmine, white freesia petals, grated ginger, and fresh ozone. Oh, and once it dries you’ll smell like “sensual woods” and “soft skin musk.” Eau my, indeed.

The Final Frontier

The Starship Enterprise Appears to be Surveying Earth From The Moon

This amazing photo was taken in broad daylight, and is interesting enough as a fascinating shot of the moon.  But it’s doubly exciting because it looks like the Enterprise is drifting over the moon, and George Takei agrees, commenting on his Facebook page,”My goodness, from this angle it looks like a certain starship I once flew.” Unfortunately, Spock, Kirk, Sulu and company have not traveled back in time to our present day, and the shot in reality shows the International Space Station, photographed by Maximilian Teodorescu, a Romanian photographer.  Still, regardless of whether we’re seeing the Enterprise or the ISS, the photograph and the space station photographed are amazing.  Check out a larger version here.

George Takei’s Facebook “Ghostwriter” Apologizes

Rick Polito, the comedy writer behind many of the posts on George Takei’s Facebook page, feels bad about “letting the tribble out of the bag” on his ghostwriting involvement for the Star Trek actor’s page. He apparently sent Takei and husband Brad Altman an apology.

For those of you that didn’t get this news: yes, the truth can be a terrible thing. George Takei is not the only person writing jokes for his Facebook page.

Comedians and Other Celebrities With Baguettes Where Baguettes Should Not Be

So there’s this Tumblr, where comedians and other folks put baguettes in places they shouldn’t be, and then take nice pictures of it.

And that’s it.

I don’t know what else you would want.
