Help me pick the next topic!

Since I'm a disorganised indecisive scatterbrain, how about you help me pick the next topic? Otherwise I start writing 10 posts in parallel and never finish any... (my drafts folder is massive...) I've set up a poll to the right --->

Also, additional suggestions definitely welcome and encouraged! As are random questions/comments/musings/criticisms/rants/etc. You guys need to comment more proliferously. Especially those whose blogs I plague with mine ^.^

Blue isopod time:

Found it in California, never seen a bluish-purple one before. I wonder if it's an allelic thing, or actually a separate species altogether...


  1. Ebriids and ellobiopsids are two options that occurred to me, but I think I'll propose a third - just why is everything about dinoflagellates just so *%&$ing wierd?

  2. Love the blue isopod! Here in the Southern Rockies one of my favorite flowers is Penstemon whippleanus, the dusky penstemon. Most are a beautiful wine-purple, but growing right next to them you often find a whitish allelic variant. Mendel alert! Probably a mutation somewhere in the purple-producing machinery.

    And please. . . can one ever get enough of T C-S?

  3. It's neither... it's an infection with iridiovirus
