ew!
Dutifully went to Bio today. Lab was a field trip to Mt. Diablo State Park. We did about a 3 mile hike along a wide, hard-packed trail (when I say "wide", at no point was it too narrow for a pickup truck). We never left the path. We identified lots of plants, including some natives, some animals, and... ticks.

So far I have removed seven ticks from myself. None of them had dug in yet, but I am utterly freaked out, because I think my odds of catching them ALL before they dig in are poor. Have I mentioned that I am a bit freaky about getting insects caught in my hair? Talk about good excuses to cut it OFF...

Current Mood: grossed out

Yuuuuck.

My strongest tick memory was the tick that gave rise to a special nickname in boot camp. I had one in my... I'll just say I'm glad it was a woman who pulled it out.

Now I'm wondering what I'll have to bribe you with to learn the nickname.
