A Fly in Your Soup?
It’s good protein
While I was doing some research for an article about the ABQ BioPark's third annual Creeping, Crawling Cuisine dinner, I found myself in some strange corners of the Internet. Happily, I also discovered the, Girl Meets Bug blog, which is written by one Daniella Martin, a woman who is on a personal crusade to make insect eating hip. Or at least, not reviled.
Her blog covers all manner of related topics, from insectivorous recipes, to cultural critique, to suspenseful descriptions of her pet whip scorpion stalking and eating a grasshopper. Her writing is light and humorous and, as her (unfortunately short-lived) video cooking show proves, she's got a lot of charisma. The insect eating lifestyle couldn't ask for a better ambassador.

Webgame Wednesday… On Wednesday! Nuclear Plant
Not to put any pressure on you, but in Nuclear Plant, nearly all life on Earth has been exterminated by nuclear war, and you've been placed in charge of the planet's last plant. Your job is to grow it to maturity–which would be a lot easier if it weren't for the waves of marauding mutant insects and animals. Hold them off as long as you can. Upgrade your guns and research new equipment… between blowing away wave after wave of flesh-hungry monsters. Like I said, no pressure.
