If you had the chance to go crazy and completely overhaul your appearance, what would you do?
Recount a remarkable incident involving insects.
Odd, no Writer's block for today (May 29)... did LJ decide to discontinue?
As for this one, Back in High School, for AP Bio, we had to do an insect collection with 15 of the 30 orders represented. (Thank G-d, I had no desire to go looking for book lice.) Well, I managed to capture a grasshopper and get him in the killing jar. Where he wouldn't die. I stuck the jar in the freezer after 2 hours of watching it try to suffocate (and feeling like Satan himself for trying to kill the bastard).
Well, after it had been frozen I pinned it (upside down, it turned out) to the styrofoam display board. At which point it started moving again. At which point I put it (pin and all) back in the jar amd back in the freezer. I pin it again in the morning and drop it off in Mrs. Lee's room before first period. (Bio was my last class of the day, and I really didn't want to drag insects around through 6 other classes and lunch.)
I run into Mrs. Lee on my way to another class later in the day, where she informs me not only did I pin the bloody grasshopper upside down, but it resussitated in 3rd period and she had to put it in the freezer again. It also managed to lose one of its back legs trying to get up again.
So, that's the story of the zombie grasshopper that wouldn't die.
