The sixth-grade science fair was less about science and more about showcasing the student’s idiosyncrasies.
My brother and I spent the Winter inserting motors harvested from innocent appliances into the wall outlet in the basement and recording the results in our notebooks.
The results usually included the motors jumping out of our hands, spinning impossibly fast and bouncing around the room like a pinball.
And also blown fuses. (“Geez mom, I don’t know why the power keeps going out.”)
I don’t remember why we had to perform those “tests” – they really had nothing to do with his perpetual motion machine (made of legos, of course) or my nail+wire+battery=magnet.
The electro-magnet can be turned on or off just like my freak-magnet. I prefer to leave my freak-magnet on as it makes life more interesting.
And now I’ll talk about the project du jour: I designed a logo for a company called Pretty Fluffy Chicken – PFC develops recipes, cocktails, and blog content for clients like General Mills, a cantaloupe grower in California and a law firm looking for a custom cocktail for an event.
This could only be the brainchild of the ladies from JSTK.
Anyway, here’s the logo:
