Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

It's the NyQuil talking, I SWEAR...

I am at work, just working along. Working, working, working... La di da di da di daaaaahhh... Ooooh, look! In the course of said work, I clippety jippety clacked out this sentence:

In general, when a female gypsy moth emerges from its pupal casing, it will mate and deposit eggs within 1 meter of that pupation site, which will then become an oviposition site for the emerging female gypsy moth.

Now, don't be hatin' on my mad writing skillz, or feel in any way inadequate or jealous that I write on a regular basis about such riveting topics as extending the reaccreditation testing intervals for tuberculosis in captive cervids, removing entire states from the oriental fruit fly list of quarantined areas, or imposing regulations on the collection and distribution of sheep semen, but we can't all have the glamorous jobs, right? I mean, people have to be responsible for building and maintaining our roads, collecting tolls, balancing the budget, and teaching the children, right? RIGHT?! Someone MUST TEACH THE CHILDREN!!

Heh. Wait. Pupation! That is a truly awesome word! Say it with me now: "pupation." See? Fun! Oh, those gypsy moth pupae and their crazy pupal casings and oviposition sites and all... Pupa! Hmmm... Ooooh, watch out! You almost stepped in that dog pupa! Heh-heh. How do I come up with this stuff?! Oh, it's killing me! GAH!

No, really.

Killing. Me.

Now see, I always thought pupas were those black circles in the middle of your eyes...

Praise God and pass the nyquil.
