The Devo/Cacti idea was the first thing that popped into my head. I'm glad you like them, I was a little worried about those
and the 'beautiful world' is from one of Devo's songs. I didn't know whether you knew/liked the song, but I saw a pic you posted of a cacti and you said "I love the desert and I am very proud to live in such an alien landscape." so I though the lyrics were appropriate.
Those cacti were all freehand, too, I was so scared I'd mess it all up.
My undies arrived today, too! They are so wonderful! String Theory chose my themes of foxes and Gir from Invader Zim. I hope to get pics tomorrow. Right now my house is in chaos because we are having the drywall and ceiling done in the sunroom, so everything had to be taken out of there, and now there's stuff all over the place.
