On the CNN homepage right now there is a slideshow of a few orchid photographs. They are doing a story on people who have their orchid collections boarded.

Orchid owners buy TLC for delicate blooms

They use those same stats every time they talk about orchids. $9 billion in sales, orchidelirium, Orchid Thief by Susan Orlean blah blah blah.

You never see orchid collectors walking around in costume do you? How many people who go to Sci-Fi conventions dress as Star Wars characters? That's what I thought.

:fight:

I think we are normal. Now, I have to go check Trader Joe's for a new shipment of orchids, since that's the only place in Phoenix I can buy some right now. :)

I thought we were all going to dress up as kovachiis and camp out in front of Piping Rock Orchids. Did I not get the memo?

Well, I guess since the beans have been spilled, there is no point in keeping it a secret...



I took some liberties with the headpiece, but I think it works. Now if I could just fix the pants so my psudobulbs don't chafe.

BADA BING!

yeah, likely story Pat! Fess up, that ain't tobacco and that's been one heck of a 17 years you've been living! Where did you get the tattoo from? Joliet Prison :poke:
