well. you see, half of the day, I’m in a cube. Have to have some level of decorum. BUt I’m forever pushing the envelope. As a gift last year, SIL gave me an ‘asian water garden’ - miniature - it’s a black plastic cup w/ some stones, you put water in it, and the ‘bubble’ effect comes from a hand held tube that you squeeze.
But it needs to be on a plate.
And, I, the ever so mindful of appearances person that I am, thought it would be most appropriate if said plate had some Asian symbols on 'em. Except the only ones I can find are for things like “Peace” , “Love”, “Harmony” etc.
I"m looking for something the general equivalence of “F*** you” , some expletive. Hoping there is such a thing.
This would (in general) not be seen, per se, since the water garden would be sitting on it, (maybe just the edges of it), so it wouldn’t be like I was shouting some rudeness (should some one be able to recognize the symbol), but, it would make me happy, just knowing it was there.
thanks ever so.
(for those wondering how I"d manage to get it on a plate, I’d copy the symbol onto a piece of greenware at a local shop that allows you to decorate pieces, then they fire 'em up in a kiln. I used the same technique when I made the “Snookie bowls” for gifts several years ago - they all had a caricature of his face at the bottom, saying “Hey, where’s my ice cream?” )
