LEFTOVERS: This shot was from yesterday, at Seattle Center. Sometime over the past couple of months this super cool steel squid was added to the courtyard just northwest of Experience Music Project.
A placard next to it dubbed it the "Parking Squid," so we were thinking it's supposed to be used as a bike rack. And sure enough, when we Googled "Parking Squid" today, we learned it is a sculpture by Susan Robb. It was commissioned by the Seattle Department of Transportation in 2009, and was installed in 2012.
MORE PONIES: Today Annabelle used the ever-favorite General Zoi's Pony Creator tool to create these trio of ponies, inspired by "The Animaniacs."
THE QUEST CONTINUES: The kids are still participating in the Math Quest at their Shoreline school. Each week, they get a packed of math problems, and if they get the problem correct, they get to roll a die and move that number of spaces on the Math Quest map.
Today, CJ received noticed had earned enough points to have a showdown with an ogre (it involved rolling dice).
He went to the office and rolled. A 6 would have won the ogre battle. Unfortunately, he rolled a measly 1, which means he'll have to do some more math, but that's not a bad thing, right?!
Annabelle should have her shot at the ogre next week, while CJ awaits a rematch.
