In this week’s installment of Things I’m Stupidly Pleased With: some mussel shells I found at the lake yesterday. The first is heavy and literally as big as my face, with the mother-of-pearl exposed:

I also found both halves of a smaller shell, vacated recently enough that the connecting ligament and conchin layer (don’t remember the actual name lol) are still intact which I think is really really cool and I think I’ll try to seal it with something before it decays further

And this isn’t even like an unusual occurrence since mussels latch onto ANYTHING, but I took a lot of amusement from the colony of tiny mussels growing on the large empty mussel shell. Circle of life or something

I found these all on the far side of our little cove in the lake, so swimming to the opposite shore whilst carrying them was the real adventure (though the large one made a decent paddle). I also gathered up a ton of small shells to use for decoration or something but didn’t have anything to put them in so now one of the cupholders in my car is just full of shells.

WAIT HOLD THE FUCK UP

IS ‘MRS’ JUST MR’S 

LIKE BELONGING TO MR

OMG

Mr comes from the French monsieur, which I think literally translates as ‘my lord’ and basically just means master, and Mrs comes from maistre which is the feminine form of master, so actually—for once—no.

This was an extremely relevant comment and I thank you for educating me

Here’s a sweet little siphonophore bobbing around in the deep sea!

Siphonophores are members of the phylum Cnidaria, like jellyfish, sea anemones and corals.

They’re colonial animals. What you see here is not one, single individual, but an entire army of sea anemones and jellyfish all stuck together.

The sea anemones (or polyps) are at the bottom and use their stinging tentacles to catch food.

The jellyfish (or medusae) are at the top, where they pulse and beat away so that the whole gang can get around.

The Golden Horde is back! And this time they’re kinda cute.

I knew I was pretty badly sunburnt, but I didn’t realize how bad until I slapped my leg laughing and spent the next fifteen minutes gently weeping

I always get the dumbest urge to practice during the wee hours of the morning, which happens to be the least acceptable time to play a string instrument loudly and poorly
