My Pet Jelly

This is my pet jellyfish:
--
I haven’t named it; I’m not sure it needs a name. At any rate, it hasn’t suggested one yet.

The Oregon Coast Aquarium is equipped with an extensive and alluring gift shop, and they were featuring these beautiful jellyfish-glass objets d’art in the front windows–and zoop! I was drawn in! They had plain off-white, blue- and pink-tinged, and dark reddish ones in two sizes. I was awfully tempted by them, especially once I discovered they were glow-in-the-dark, but I tried to resist their glow-in-the-dark jellyfish-under-glass charms. Ken, perhaps having a clearer vision of the immediate future, decided the trip home would not be bearable if I left them ALL behind, and very nicely bought me the most beautiful and perfect one in the whole shop.

We brought it home and discovered that exposure to a little UV light (like the one emitted by my Official Dr. Who Replica Sonic Screwdriver) makes it light up like a nightlight, so that’s how I use it. I charge it up, snuggle down, and lie there thinking peaceful, floating-in-the-depths thoughts until I drift off into slumber.

    Your Ken is such a gem. How unbelievably beautiful…

  2. Not a gem. Just sure that I didn’t want to deal with al that moping.

    😉

    You mean she mopes as well as whines?! She does have a way of getting her way. (Smiley face goes here.)
    B-T-W – The pictures are gorgeous. Do you (Ken) get the credit?

    Don’t listen to Ken, of course he’s a gem! He’s me very own darlin’ boy.

    The pics are a mix of Ken’s and mine: on the pet jelly, I did the daylight photo and he did the nightglow ones. For the rest, you can use the rule of thumb that the grainier they are, the more likely I took them, as I only had my camera phone with me, and Ken was using his muy macho setup.

  5. Actually Kari’s photos are really a lot better than they should be for a cell phone camera, and sized down for the website they’re better than most of the shots I took.

    I blew through over 200 photos and large percentage of them aren’t very good. (I did have a broken lens with me, but that’s no excuse).

    The good thing about my pictures, compared to Kari’s, is that the files are large enough for prints.

    Yeah, those Centro phones have a decent camera.

    Also, Ken, yours really do rock. I honestly think you could submit a lot of your work for sale. You are quite talented.
