Of course, had this been an actual lobster, you'd all be mourning my passing about now. ;)

    Just wanted to say I love your pic...so much so that I used it on my blog www.dantedegreed.com. Check it out -- you might enjoy the story it accompanies. And I've linked it back to your flickr page so maybe you'll get some hits.

    Thanks for taking such great pics!

    I am in total awe of your bento-making skills. I am only an egg!! Just... wow!! Now I wonder if I should hide this link, or my daughter will look and say, "Mom, you're an artist, why can't you make me bentos like this?" and I'll say, "... because I'm still asleep when I make your bentos?"

    *is beyond impressed*

    You have the obsession of eating animals, for even vegetables are made to look like animals by you. that's not any good.
