My internal conflict as represented in two butter dishes. 
15th-Aug-2011 10:35 am
sindrian pointed out that I need a butter dish. He is right! So I popped over to Amazon to look at butter dishes, and have narrowed it down to two.

Cute, funky, modern, goes with my matryoshka measuring cups.

Reminds me of my grandmother. No, in a good way. I have a perfume bottle from her in the same style.

first one!

Embrace the power of AND! Besides, you need two, because they do need to get washed.

This! (and Buddha in the fridge would be pretty funny)

I came in to say exactly this. One for formal, the other for fun.
15th-Aug-2011 02:41 pm (UTC) - Two!
1. because having divided votes is funny!
2. It also reminds me of older generations. I'm all about respecting the past, and I am not inclined towards owning Buddha-like stuff. For you, though? ... No, still the second.

Belly Buddha bought some butter,
"But," he said, "this butter's bitter;
If I put it in my batter,
It will make my batter bitter;
But a bit of better butter,
Better than the bitter butter
Will but make my bitter batter better."

So he bought a bit of better butter,
Better than the bitter butter,
and made his bitter batter better.

So that's my vote.

Also? Even tongue-twisters get their own freakin' Wikipedia page.

Darn you to heck, I say :-)

Frankly, Buttah Buddah should've known that desire and attachment are impediments to enlightenment and would've declared that the batter is only your perception and if it seems bitter then perhaps it is only a reflection of disharmony with you.

Oh, and Buddah don't steal no milk from mamma cow.

I think you should buy a candy dish in the cut glass style, and keep it near your perfume bottle for rings and hair ties, etc. You MUST have the Buddha, because the sight of him reclining in the side door when you open the fridge will bring smiles to everyone who sees him!

I bow to your wisdom.

I was going to say two, but really, who else has the Buddha in the fridge? Go Buddha.

Oh my god, I *love* the matryoshka measuring cups! That's awesome!

And I have at least 3 candy dishes from my grandmother in the same style as the second dish. Maybe our grandmothers went shopping together.

But I do love the laughing buddha. So if you're looking for votes, I say the first. Imagine being greeted with a smile every time you look in your fridge!

First one has my vote.

Hmmm...I'm going to toss out there that "I'm weird" before I tell you my vote.

Ok, so I'm weird, got it?

I have to go with number 2 because a lot of Buddhist paths are vegetarian and are ethically opposed to the exploitation of animals. If it is real butter, the dairy industry is pretty scary and I think Buddha would frown on their shenanigans and by proxy, the association with their product. I realize that is off the wall, but meh. It is what it is.

I can't believe it's not Buddha!

I find the first one really disturbing.

Number two is quite elegant.
