Thanks! I only noticed because I checked my wordpress stats!

Also according to the curatorial assistant of Botany, the earwig collection I'm working on was mentioned on BBC Radio 2 last week. I missed it though. :C

That's... awesome! Nice one!

I hope you're well, I just added your DW as I'd not heard much from you on here lately...

I haven't been posting much lately- locked post or otherwise. I've been BUSSSSY. Going to the NHM tomorrow to study lantern bugs and deliver spider specimens. I taught a KS3 session as well. That was a baptism of fire!

I also mainly use DW as an archive in case LJ blows up one day- I haven't updated it in a while.

LJ blowing up seems to become more likely with every passing week.

KS3 sessions? Gosh, that takes me back, and not in a good way... When you say NHM, do you mean in South Ken? It's my company summer party or I'd suggest drinkage!

Yes I mean South Kensington. It's okay I don't have much time to socialize anyway- I'm there for two nights then have to catch an early afternoon train back. I'm going to be knackered. This is why teleportation needs to be invented.

You may not be aware - there's some sort of holiday engineering nightmare on the District Line between Edgware Road and High Street Kensington. Not sure if it affects the Circle Line or not.

I don't take the circle line, so thankfully it won't affect me.

Anyone who doesn't take the circle line should be thankful in general, but it's a particularly good thing at the moment :)

In less than two weeks, I'll have finished with the Wimbledon branch of the District Line forever :)

I bet if it had been 3 weeks ago it would have been a fake smile as I was so stressed that week! This one is genuine though :)

It's a great photo, and it's very cool that Scientific American are linking to you! :)

Woohoo! (or should that be Potoo?)
