"Octopus's Garden"

The idea for the song came about when Starr was on a boating trip with his family in Sardinia in 1968. He was offered an octopus lunch, but turned it down. Then the boat's captain told Starr about how octopuses travel along the sea bed picking up stones and shiny objects with which to build gardens. Starr said that hearing about octopuses spending their days collecting shiny objects at the bottom of the sea was one of the happiest things he had ever heard, inspiring him to write this song. – Wikipedia

It is snowing...yet again...and I am beginning to wonder if Spring will ever grace us with its presence. Yes, I’m despondent and fed up with feeling cold and slushy...it’s almost March for God sake...Gap already has their "Spring pastels" in store windows (an annual sign that spring has sprung)...it should be above freezing (at a minimum).

But it’s not...so I’m going to take comfort in the na├»ve quirkiness of Tsumori Chisato’s sparkly octopus sweatshirt...my happiness-enducing "shiny object".

    How cute! I'm thinking of doing an octopus thing with one of my new rings. We'll see.

    i like cute octopi.
    i really like sweatshirts with a little extra zip (not literal zippers mind you - but if i add a cool pin to a cozy sweatshirt, i'm quite satisfied that it has been suitably transformed from pajamas to fabulous clothing).

    I love it! There's no reason in the world not to own that.
