Yesterday, a man stumbled upon my blog entry wherein I likened all the books swimming around in my head to sea monkeys and sent me an e-mail about it. And that was a good thing. You see, the man was George C. Atamian, a fellow Armenian and President of Transcience Corporation, the company that created and owns the rights to sea monkeys. Ummm, I mean Sea-Monkeys®.
No, George didn't scold me for using the name of his product without it being properly capitalized or for leaving off the trademark registration symbol. Instead, he was thrilled that I mentioned the little buggers and offered to send me a kit to start my very own Sea-Monkey colony. Of course, I said yes! I remember having Sea-Monkeys as a kid, but haven't seen them since. It will be like a stroll down memory lane.
Wikipedia has a great write-up on the creatures.
