Kraken! Oh, God! I love a good kraken. I love a bad kraken! I love ‘em all!
Rum! Oh, Black Kraken Rum is divine…try this stuff. Go to their Facebook page and look at the recipes and try them all! And their website, oh, man! Hilarious movies explaining what a kraken is…beautifully done, very steampunk.
I collect krakens…I have…ornaments, pins, a stuffed one (okay, it’s an octopus, but I call him Krakey.) I even have a finger puppet one, where four fingers manipulate four tentacles. In fact most of my kraken look like octopus. But why not? You ever seen one? Gonna tell me that isn’t what they look like?
My current tablet has a kraken on it…a gift from a friend at the holidays. And she got me a great bumper sticker, too. Thanks, Terrio!
I have a kraken I sorta befriended on the Romance Writers Revenge, the blog I’m part of. I wrote a blog about feeding inner critics to the kraken and it was a hit…with the kraken as well as me fellow writing pirates. It’s here (http://romancewritersrevenge.com/2009/06/19/killing-the-inner-critics-enjoying-it/) if you want to check it out. And now? Well, he makes appearances whenever one of the crew needs to feed someone to the kraken. Do feel free to wander over to the Revenge on any day and toss those pesky inner critics to him. He loves it and they generally return a bit more subdued and not so loud and nasty. I do love my Krakey!
You know how it is, you feed a wild thing and it begins to follow you everywhere! Might even send a young’un to perch on your computer!
