Open to all forum members, even after it starts!

This month's prompt:
Bugs

Yep. Bugs. Simple and easy. Prose, poetry, play. Fiction, nonfiction. It's all good, all bugs.

Instructions:
Simply post your blog's URL in this thread to join. I'll let you know in this thread when it's your turn. Once your turn comes up, you have two days to complete a blog post using the prompt. When you are finished, please add a link to your post on the thread.
If you signed up but find yourself unable to participate or need to be moved around in the schedule, please PM me or post in the thread. If you fail to post on your blog and on the thread within two days, I'll bump you down to the end of the line on the third day; you'll get a second chance at the end of the month.

Each post should be less than 1000 words if possible. Read and comment on other participants' posts if you possibly can--they'll be doing the same for you! Please include a list of all participants' blogs (not necessarily their actual posts for the month) in your blog post.

Everyone through Lady Cat is added. I am not surprised that no one likes bugs. We are, as my entomologist father observes, mammal chauvinists who only care about things that are cute and fuzzy. PETA protests when they smear cosmetics on rabbits but he regularly mutated the hell out of fruit flies and no one cared :D

Not sure what I am getting into but I laugh in the face of the unknown...Ha! ( Not really but I'll give it a go. )
Post any specific questions you have and we'll answer them!

Oh, oh - okay, count me in, please, with my brand-new blog. Warning: my first attempt at blogging in English, so if you find mistakes, I am most thankful to have them pointed out, although I will do my best not to annoy my readers with bad spelling.

Bugs: I have a cat. She is a big huntress. But I got the impression that she loves cockroaches as playmates and forgets to kill them. ;-)

Edit: my url, of course:

Diem Allen and all of you on blogger, I can't post a comment because you don't allow name/url combos for posting. Please fix this if you want me to post. Thanks in advance!
