This is the Swedenborgian church:
Lyon steps between Broadway and Vallejo:

I headed home for lunch and then went to a spin class after work. I stopped by the Barney on the way home and played a little at the Le Labo counter. I sprayed Patchouli 24 on my arm and that was a big mistake. I don't know if it was the underlying notes or how they reacted to my skin chemistry but on me, Patchouli 24 smells like meat. I felt sorry for the people standing near me on Muni on the way home. Luckily, dogs didn't follow me home because we all know we'd have to keep them. I had dinner and went to bed. Thankfully, the scent had faded a little.
