What’s on the Menu, Tonight?

ce qui est pour le dîner ?

Let’s get a few culinary items straight first up, shall we. Calamari is fried squid and does not refer to octopus meat (my mistake initially). I could digress here and say that the best calamari I have ever eaten was at a humble fish’n’chip shop in the town of Mittagong, Australia – but I am digressing. So what is octopus meat called then? In English-speaking countries it’s octopus whether it’s alive and kicking or predicting football match results, or the deceased variety that ends up on your plate. But in Japan they use octopus to make a snack called takoyaki, while in Greece fried octopus is xtapodi – and just seeing pictures of it makes my mouth water!! 😀

So as the dish of the day, what is Alles wearing?

The pose that I used is Ma Vie – Temptress (2) … made by Mavi Beck. However this pose was considerably edited by me using my Animare HUD – I changed the position of both my right arm and my right leg. And having loaded the pose into a pose stand, I then tilted the pose stand so that it was then at ninety degrees to the water surface.
