  1. Nice wrap up to 2008. Happy New Year!

  2. This is so random and possibly spam.
    I’ll shoot anyway because your bug girl and I love commenting on blogs!
    I can’t recall the actors name but I love that guy from CSI that loves bugs and things. I also adore moths. I am an agnostic atheist and share a common interest with you in science.
    I would love to learn more about bugs and their relativity to evolution.
    Perhaps, you could head me in the right direction?
    I hope to learn more about your atheist views.

    Thankyou for your time,
