  1. Scandinavian, is it; I didn’t know that. My only contact with the Kraken (pre Pirates movies) was in history, at school. Two monsters of the deep kept the mariners from exploring across the Atlantic (pre-Columbus). Kraken and Bishop of the Sea. I distinctly remember it cos our history would give us spot tests, and if we didn’t get 10/10 he would impose what he considered a suitable punishment. I didn’t get this one right. Got the Bishop, but not Kraken. And knowing how shy I was, he called me out in front of the class and had me sing Rule Britannia. And I have no singing voice. The bastard. But it worked. That answer is now indelible in my brain.

  2. Krakens are truly terrifying, even if, mythical creatures. I saw a film called ‘Life’ in which a martian life form had an appearance based on an octopuses’s physical form. I somehow found it kind of disturbing which is rare for me.
    Nice story, Jen!
