Congrats! I always thought that would be a very interesting field to work in.
Wow! What an opportunity. If insect larvae creep you out be thankful you're not in parasitology.
Yay! Fiancee was accepted too!!
Go celebrate! Buy a new plant!
All you bugs out there....you better watch out!
I've considered sending my body to the Body Farm when I croak.

Congratulations. I worked for a university entomology department for the last 1/2 of 1990 and thought it was fascinating. Davis is a premier school for anything like that, so you've done well.
By the way, PAK, that's quite a cheery thought. How much of the day do you spend considering things like that?

Congratulations! Maybe you can pull pupae out of people's throats, a la Silence of the Lambs style.
Congrats; my current adviser did his post-doc out there.
Congrats! Yeah i have an aversion to maggots too, which is unfortunate since i'm going into vet medicine :P I don't know what it is, they're really not overly interesting animals (small tubular eating machines... just like caterpillars, which are cute!) but they're just SO gross!!!!
Best of luck!!!

I like myrmecology, ants are my favorite! Im going to college for photography, freelance at first, but would LOVE to make it into wildlife photography, taking as many insect photos as I possibly can.
