W post. (Double-u is used as a synonym for "double" in Japanese, which I find irritating for non-specific reasons.) It's good, though.

Probably one of the most disturbing things I've ever seen. But I can't help but be curious about the forbidden page.

Just in case anyone still doesn't know about bansaikitten:

It's a fake!
(Christ, I remember when it came out, people all over the world were freaking out, and rightly so. I exchanged e-mails with a desperately concerned girl in Italy whom I'd never met, despite the fact that we didn't speak each others' languages...)

Really? bonsaikitten.com a fake? I had absolutely no idea.

Hmm. For some reason, http://www.bonsairepublican.com/ doesn't seem to be working.

More or less on topic--the Weyerhauser Bonsai Garden is something else. Here's more. It's near Seattle, on the ground sof their headquarters, which is an interesting piece of architecture in itself. And right next door to the bonsai garden is the Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden--10,000 rhody's on 22 acres. Jeez, I'm glad I looked this up--this is the time of year to go visit. Oh, we've got it made in the Pacific Northwest--the other thing to see now is the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. An, oh, man--I see now I missed it again. Damn! Spring happens so fast...
