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.
