While I was out doing the shopping last weekend with Dad and the kids, I was exhausted. We stopped at New Sagaya for a lb of my coffee, and I grabbed myself a ginseng root drink to help me stay awake.
The drink had in it a piece of ginseng root, and it looks like an alien podling.( Collapse )
Not the greatest picture, the rest of the root looks like a finger with tentacles coming off of it. The little tentacle bits kept brushing my lips while I was tossing it down. A fairly unpleasant feeling.
So to the point, I've got the empty bottle with the podling in it. I love the shape of the bottle and was thinking of using it for the base of my Fur Rondy entry this year, bottles have always done well for me in competition. Do I take the podling out and bead the bottle gorgeously to look like Love Potion #9 thing, or do I leave the podling in and bead it with aliens and spirals and all sort of organic/freeform goodness with enough of a window to see the podling?
