Giant Glowing Slugs
Last night after school I went to the Tate Britain to see the giant leopard slugs that have been sliming up its entrance all winter.
The work of artist Monster Chetwynd (which I thought was a great name, until I read that she previously went by Marvin Gaye Chetwynd and Spartacus Chetwynd, and now I don't really know which one is better), the slugs are made of compostable materials and decorated with energy efficient LED lights.
They're only up for a few more days. I heard about them courtesy of fellow blogger Linda Sue, who visited them while on her recent stay in London and posted pictures on Facebook. Thanks, Linda Sue!
Today we have parent conferences at school, so there are no classes -- but there will be plenty of kids running around and something tells me the library will be busy. I need to work on shifting some of the books in our fiction section to make more room on the shelves, so I hope I can get away from the desk long enough to work on that. Plus, I have a second mission-statement focus group to lead. Lord!
