So my work put together something real special for me on my birthday yesterday. When I first laid eyes on it I think I simultaneously clapped with joy and backed away out of fear. There is this amazing trend of Bowie celebrating my birthday with me (remember this gem?) and I was glad this year was no exception.

I know the Bowie-Mantis really deserves an explanation but I think it would take the fun out of just letting your mind run with it. Just your mind and those nobly hinged legs running hand in mantis hand through a wheat field together, a wheat field of fear.

Yep. Way more fun.
