A true biologist (or mortician?) from an early age, I once spent a whole summer burying and eulogizing found bug carcasses with my impressionable friend, Susan. When the back yard was cleared of carcasses the game quickly turned to bug murder and then sobbing to Susan's mom about bug murder. It was then that I swore to use my love of science only for the powers of good.
22 years after The Summer of Dead Bugs I moved from Seattle, Washington to Birmingham, Alabama for the purposes of obtaining a Ph.D. in Cell Biology. When pressed, I will admit that this was a dubious life decision.
- UPDATE!!!- Doctorate achieved....what were the odds? I should buy you a lottery ticket 'cause I must be LUCKY!
