You know what's cuter than those McCain supporters in that last video I posted? Baby vampire bats! They're pretty cute, aren't they? Don't you kind of want to cuddle them? Even if they grow up to look like this:
Did you know that vampire bats are one of very few mammal species who are known to adopt orphaned young, and help feed less fortunate roost-mates? Isn't that awesome?
I've been getting ready for my presentation tomorrow at the Oregon/Washington school librarians' conference -- it's on "what I do in a school visit." When I heard Cynthia Lord speak at the SCBWI conference back in April, she recommended doing this kind of talk, so here I go. I looked at the conference schedule today, and there are so many great presentations going on, I just hope I get an audience. My talk is called "Pink Wigs & Caterpillar Poop." Hopefully that will pique some interest! I see a couple of Northwest writers I met at the blogger's conference will be speaking too, including Christine Fletcher and Deb Lund.
By the way, I added a new "Earth's Greatest Hits" today. It's creepy-cool parasite stuff. Check it out HERE.
