The pupil is the dark small center circle in our eyes. The pupil is actually a hole that lets light into the eye so that we can see.
Light changes the size of the pupil. When it is bright and light is strong, the pupil gets smaller. When it is dark, the pupil gets bigger to let in more light.
In other animals, the pupil can be a different shape. Cats and Werecats have vertical slit pupils as do snakes, Swamp Monsters, Dragons and Gorgons.
Here's the iris.
The colorful circle around our pupil connects to muscles in the eye. These muscles control the pupil and can make it bigger or smaller.
The iris is responsible for making the muscles let light into the pupil when it is dark and keep light out of the pupil when it is bright.
The sclera is the white part of the eye.
While Humans and Cyclops have white scleras, other mammals are different.
In dogs, cats and other mammals the part of the sclera we can see matches the iris, so it looks like they have no sclera at all.
These ghouls have white scleras, colorful irises and vertical slit pupils:
Eye color tends to run in families. Every member of the wolf family has yellow irises!
A fangtastic slideshow at Monsta High Nuket shows the design of each of Skelita's Papel Picado. I saw Positive Space bats and bones, and Negative Space stars, hearts, safety pins and I am positive that there are more to find.
Here is one of the most famous and easy to find Negative Space examples just for fun. Do you see the arrow in between in the E and the X in DeadEx and FedEx?
Catrine's favorite food, a Mille Feuille, is a lot like her: sophisticated, eye-catching and completely French.
Don't know how to say it? Don't worry, Emma will say it for you or you can do what I do and say "Meel Foy" which is close enough. Now, what is it?
First let's let Catrine describe it: "three layers of the puff pastry filled with the sweet scream and the sugar powdered on top. Ah...c'est magnifique!"
Sounds delicious, no? Let's dig deeper.
Mille in French means "thousand" (not "million") and we find the same word in millenium (1000 years) and millipede (though no millipede has 1000 legs).
Does Catrine's pastry have a thousand of anything in it? Catrine says that a mille feuille only has three layers of puff pastry. However, puff pastry itself is made of many many layers.
How? Well, puff pastry is made by folding and rolling wet dough and cold butter over and over and over and over and over.
When it is finished it looks like it has thousands of layers of flaky clawsomeness. However, it is way too delicious for anyone to ever stop and count.
The Feuille in mille feuille means "sheets" which makes sense as the puff pastry bakes into super thin sheets. However, feuille can also mean "leaves".
Huh? Well, in English a "leaf" can also mean a page in a book. So sheet/leaf/page can all mean the same thing. I wonder which is thinner: a sheet of paper or a layer of puff pastry in a mille feuille? I'm sure Catrine knows...
Just in case you don't believe me about the puffiness and layeriness of puff pastry, here's an amazing image from The Big Bake Theory. Raw puff pastry on the left, baked puff pastry on the right. Mon dieu! Those feuille!
