Re: The Falling Flower


This is based on the poem by Arakida Moritake;

A fallen blossom
returning to the bough, I thought-
But no, a butterfly.

I was just sketching while thinking of this poem and a cat kind of ended up in there... not sure how that happened.

Oh god, do I really need another kitty shirt??? I'm pretty sure I've bought at least 5 in the last like three months....and the colors are quite similar to The Artist....

Ahh, well... GMV even though I know they are out of AA's in this color shirt

Sadly, with all the news reports on now, all I see is pink slime.

Yay! Another Ochopika kitty. ^_^ I'd have a closet full of your stuff if I could!

What? I've not been keeping up on current events, apparently. I will look that up now and probably be horrified. *edit: Just looked it up. Not to sound hipster-ish, but people didn't know about this until just now? It's nice to see that the grossness of the food industry is finally getting some real publicity. I thought people just didn't care that they were eating liquified cow scraps and ammonium. I guess its really just the ammonium that I think is really gross. Okay, I'm off my off-topic soap box now.*

Oh btw, it's been just about a year since I started posting here. Thanks everyone for being so awesome and helpful to me this whole time

You are right of course. In the old days, we called it offal and from time to time some company or other was called out for using it in 100% beef or pork or whatever and then they would argue that variety meats were more nutritious, bla, bla, bla. Calling it Pink Slime has just sexed it up for our jaded public, made us take notice.

lol! Yes, yes they should. I would like an angelfood cake with strawberries and whipped cream. A cheesecake would also be acceptable...or a really dark chocolate cake with really good icing; not that cheap sugary icing that makes you sick, but the real dark chocolate kind. Mmmm.
