Just an update on the fireants...

I just read that if you put corn meal next to fire ant piles, the ants carry the meal into the mound. When they eat it, they can't digest it and therefore the ants DIE!!!!!!!!!

News from Evansville

I have finally heard from Evansville today and I placed 95th. Not bad considering there were about 400 other people there.

But they're only taking 32 people...

Yup, I didnt make the cut again. I was really hoping that I would improve over last time where I placed 81st. Oh well though, I still got Indy.

Hey, look, Boston is hiring spring of '08......
