I'm just an average person living an average life. I eat, drink, work, sleep, repeat. What you will find here are the things that remind me that life is not always so average.

I live in a suburb of Washington, DC. I am a systems administrator/network engineer/whatever-they-want-me-to-be for a large government contracting company. I get to work in the city which is fantastic.

I love any kind of EDM as well as most rock, some pop and hiphop and r&b; (the latter three are a recent development thanks to XM Radio). I attend Northern Virginia Community College, usually one credit at a time. Otherwise I'd never sleep. I try to go out to Cubik every so often but again with the sleep.

I have a husband (Paul), a dog (Bonita), local family (Mom, Mama y Papa), and lots of distant family (some in Dallas, some in California, most in Spain). My husband and I are looking to move to Spain (moving BACK for him) come Summer/Fall of 2006.

Maybe I'm not so average after all...

Parasitic Wasp vs. Hornworm

(viewed 1231 times)
This was hanging off of one of my tomato plants. After some researching and help from friends, it turns out that this hornworm has been "infested" by parasitic wasps. Just as the worm is about to cocoon, all of the larva that the wasp has infected the worm with start to grow out and cocoon themselves. I now have about 8 of these throughout my 6 tomato plants.
