Here’s the way I approach the nose. For my taste, the simpler, the better. But it’s always good to know what you’re working with.
Havre a great Tuesday!

Wow! It’s often difficult to remember how tiny so many nudibranches are!

salamispots asked: what is the zebra inside joooke

muttluver:

I LOVE THAT YOU ACTUALLY AASKEED

ok so I like to run around our house (the way it’s laid out allows me to pace in a large circle, which helps me think). 

One day—I thought I was alone in the house—and I’m running around, doing my thing, and normally say things aloud when my emotions get really intense inside my head, right? IMAGINATION IS SRS BIZNISS. Very important. 

So anyway, normally there’s some sort of logic behind what actually leaves my mouth. It’s an important line, or one of my made-up characters is particularly upset. Things like that. 

But I have no idea why I would yell, “I’M A ZEBRA!” at the top of my lungs.

There was no logic behind it. No backstory. Nothing to correlate. Nada. Zip. Zilch. It just.. came out. 

And my sister heard it. 

So I tell my sister not to tell my mom.

Of course she told her.

So then I tell both family members not to tell my dad.

Of course he comes back the next day and asks me if I’m a zebra. I’m mortified. This is actually more embarrassing than I thought telling the story would be, and it’s been years.

But anyway now it’s sort of a running joke and zebras are kinda my thing

I SAW THE TAG AND I HAD TO

I keep on reading the part where you’re yelling and I can’t stop laughing

Zebras everywhere (maybe you have tiny invisible zebra spirits rampaging around in your house infecting people with zebra)

IT SERIOUSLY MADE MY DAY THANKS FOR DOING THAT

I found out later that zebras represent revelation so I think that was pretty much what tipped me over from “grudging acceptance of a thing I will never live down” to “HEY LOOK THAT’S MY THING”

YOU’RE WELCOME AND SAME FOR YOUR STORY

Oooohhhhhh really? I didn’t know zebras could represent stuff, that’s cool!
