Updates from the Bug House

Looking for a new Hive in Toledo

Hi Everybody! Some quick updates:

  1. I am moving! I’m moving back to the Midwest the first week of May, so will be out of touch for most of that week.
  2. I have a contract to do some work for a company I’m quite geeked about. I won’t know until June if it will become full-time with benefits, so I’m going to be really focusing a lot of energy on that. Keep your fingers crossed that works out and I can come back to blogging this summer. They know who Bug Girl is, and are totally OK with that. That’s a first!
  3. This Happened.  I’m in the Library of Congress!!

That’s all for now–here’s some awesome buggy stuff to read while I’m trying to get my life sorted:

You know how I love Taxonomy FAIL, and Roberto finds a doosy: Exxon Photoshoppage Fail

Spiders weave a giant tapestry!

The Bug Lady discusses poison spiders in Brazil

Lovely photo of a crab spider at Ugly Overload

Interesting details of more pro-DDT Asshattery, this time in Canada.  From an interesting new book that covers the DDT propaganda machine.  I’ll review it if someone sends me a copy….*cough*

Arg!  I will be out of town for the Insect Fear Film Festival!

Don’t forget to pledge to blog about a woman in technology or science whom you admire on Ada Lovelace Day, 24th March 2010


*In case you are interested, Mr. Bug and I are splitting up, and the person that left me the dead deer head has reappeared. And there is all sorts of strangeness over the Skepchicks.
