Happy Thursday, motherfuckers

As gominokouhai says

If you let Hallmark tell you when it is appropriate to express affection, then you are doing it wrong.

If you're going to do something wrong, then go all the way! Don't just say it with a fat and naked kid with a lethal weapon in his hands. Don't even say it with a bit of dead vegetation that's spiky and tinted the colour of blood.

After all, why send a rose? Triffids are much better!

A triffid

Lo, it is my VD gift to the world.

Spiky dead vegetation the colour of blood
It's been a symbol of Gothic vampirism since 1991, but the image never gets old. Nor the feel of the thorns piercing the skin.

My favourite, though, is photographing these pink winter roses that bloom at Yule. Never mind the Summer ones. :)

Anyways, peace. Happy Thursday.

Roses are all bollocks.

Triffids have been a clear image of British horror since the 1950s. Goth n00bs should fuck off and read Wyndham sometime.

My favourite Wyndham's got to be The Chrysalids. I always equated with those mutants, mostly because I'm pretty much a mutant myself.

Though I'll only see if I am a real biological mutant if my mutation carries on with my offspring.

Between you and me, I hope my mutancy is a strain that dies out with me.

And I love roses, because roses draw aphids, and where there are aphids there you'll find the creatures I really feel affection for.

Ladybirds. :)

I learned something today! I learned what the hell a Triffid is!

You aren't secretly growing them, are you?

But what if I already sent that to her on our 6 month dating anniversary, so many years ago?

(I need to find the pictures of that thing I sent. I swear it was a triffid. But red. As I've said before - I wanted to make an impression.)

Then you're a man of style, wealth, and taste.
