These lovable cat-themed sweets were made by Caroline, a Japanese housewife. She creates them annually on Cat’s Day — February 22. The cat-shaped sweets are nerikiri: a traditional Japanese sweet made by mixing sweet white bean paste and glutinous rice. Caroline tints and sculpts them into various shapes and styles; then puts them on pancakes and doughnuts as edible decorations. They’re just too cute to eat!
Rare North Italian Halberd
- Dated: circa 1530-50
- Measurements: head 66cm. Overall length 166.5cm
This “alabarda” has a head formed with the leading edge swept up to a reinforced narrow point, a small in-curled projection above, down-curved rear fluke with reinforced point and a small projection at the base of the upper edge.
It features two small basal lugs differing left and right, faceted rectangular socket fitted with four later short straps. There is also a tapering central spike cut on both sides with a pair of flutes with medial ridge.
The socket and the rear portion of the head is decorated on both sides with punched panels of foliage. Issuant in part from the mouth of a grotesque these is also a dragon: on an early octagonal wooden haft (shortened).
Five variations of Italian halberds of this distinctive type, from various institutional collections, are recorded in BOCCIA , Lionello G. & COELHO, Eduardo T., Armi Bianche Italiane.

The problem is that I don’t have anyone right now that I really trust like that, or even someone I don’t trust that I think would humor me. The latter make up most of the people I’m acquainted with, so it makes saying anything feel sort of pointless?
You’re right, though, and I mean, I know how to live for myself above others, fuck knows, just not in a way that’s healthy for me or anyone around me. Figuring out a way that is is what I want to get done, but I have no frame of reference regarding where to start or ideas about how to get there.
Honestly, though, just…
