kate5kiwis: a pxt 4 nix


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

a pxt 4 nix

for my almost-twin, nik,
in celebration of our almost-thirty-ninth
and all things black, white, and red:
so, what have i called your bracelet?
well, i can't get past Nun In A Blender!!!
firstly, because your sense of humour
is so wonderfully macabre;
and secondly because i love the spin you put
on the *essentially feminine*,
of which you are the epitome, don't argue:
you have the complete gentleness
and grace of an angel,
nailed with six quirky inches of steel.

Nun in a Blender! I'm envisioning a complete line of macabre jewelry. Alfred Hitchcock, Edward Gorey ... horror with a twist and a dash of humor. Here is a link to The Gashlycrumb Tinies for, uh, inspiration?

I'm partial to "Neville, who died of ennui". I can't read that without laughing! I'm so jealous that you are featured in the Gashlycrumb Tinies.

Looking forward to the line of beautiful sparklies they inspire. :D
