I have a crazy day* today, so just wanted to mention the 2008/2009 Skepchick Calendars are now for sale! I am not in this version (I was in the 2006 Calendar), but there are plenty of other hot skepchicks and skepdudes for you to gawk at.
Proceeds fund travel to skeptical meetings for young women, as well as other initiatives by the Skepchick Foundation.
Other cool things around the net:
- Zooillogix has some beautiful photos of moths that you do NOT want to miss.
- Carl Zimmer’s blog has a great post about caterpillars that have their behavior changed by their parasites.
- Weirdbuglady’s giant water bug. The plush nudibranchs are pretty amazing, too, as are the the bryozoans. I am envious of this talent, since I have no crafting ability. Her online shop is here.
- Today is the end of the world, BTW.
*In case you are curious, this is what a day with Bug Girl looks like:

5-7pm: Dinner with the Dean
7pm: Frantically change from suit back to work clothes

**Hey. The cows get milked, not me, you pervs.
