So why shouldn't it be - that you and I should get along so awfully?

I'd rather be happy at the expense of hurting those around me than to be unhappy.

Not particularly sorry. I am the most important in my life, not you. As you should be the most important person in your life.

For the record: I just made myself the Pineapple Float, using Kroger Pineapple & Coconut Frozen yogurt + Pineapple Fanta. Would recommend! Best idea I had today.

Yeah, try the dark chocolate raspberry one first. It's amazing. And I typically don't do fruit in my ice-cream. It's flavoured, not pieces and the chocolate is so smooth.

I feel like it's fair to judge people if they prefer Alien Ant Farms's cover over MJ's far-superior original.

I've begun to notice that there really isn't that much of a difference between 'cat people' and 'dog people', but there is something to be said about those individuals who pigeonhole themselves as one or the other and apply needless stereotypes to either group to create a hostile us-versus-them dynamic that doesn't need to exist.

I'm more of a dog person too, even though cats love me and will climb me like a tree. You get used to the tiny puncture wounds after a while.

Thanks +Shinae Choi Robinson !

+Valdis Kletnieks Actually I've already selected out all of the families that don't occur in California (except for 7 that I'm unsure of, so there may very well be only 58 left). If I were to include the worldwide fauna, I'd still have 129 to go. There are a lot of weird obscure families out there.

I never get friendly emails anymore. Nobody just looking to converse. It's just bots that want to add me to their professional network on LinkedIn. Everybody else has transcended email.

My mom sends me email at least twice a week. She invariably sends me a text to ask if I got it. Except for this week because the "texty thingy isn't working," which is really code for "I don't know how to use my new phone."

Just want to play GTA5 and drive out to the foothills and admire the gorgeous view while searching for wildlife and snapping pics of it with my camera app.

Smoking is a slightly more attractive vice than caffeine addiction.

I don't have a caffeine Dependency or addiction. I might have a case of caffeine misuse/abuse though.

Introduction
Documenting the incredible diversity of plants and animals (especially insects) in coastal southern california by means of photography.
www.socalfauna.net

I'm always happy to assist in IDing any animal or plant (especially insects) that you may have photographed to the best of my ability, so feel free to ask! If I can't help you I can try to direct you to another resource that can. Also consider joining the Insects Community on G+ if you wish to engage with fellow bug lovers.

If you still don't know what I'm about, here is a list of five good reasons for why you shouldn't circle me and here is an index of some of my better posts.
