This is all because @UrsulaV and @mcahogarth (also known as Ursula Vernon and M.C.A. Hogarth) got up to all sorts of foolishness on Twitter. You can see it here where someone storyfied it. (I usually crack up beyond repair at the "Teach The Controversy!" point.) Somewhere in there, fashion and ornament entered in, and Kythrynne Aisling and I got all inspired by a bee-stringing honey badger. Then M.C.A. Hogarth drew me stringing bees and then she drew Kyth making jewelry, and, well, it went on from there. Then Kyth made stuff, and I made stuff. It was just a honey badger with jewelry kind of day all around. (I think we weirded Ursula out at one point. Then again, she was the one doing honey badger poetry. Which @mcahogarth responded to.) Anyway, I think it ended well. (Oh, yeah, it was Valentines Day too.)
