Wildlife!

Yesterday, miome and I discovered an Imperial moth on our apartment door. The one we saw looked a lot like the one in the first photograph: about half brown and half yellow. And no, I don't care that the article insists it's yellow and purple. It was brown. Also, do not let the picture fool you. Those things are huge. The one we saw easily had a four inch wingspan. I wish I had my camera on me, because I would have loved to have snapped a picture, but I was on my way to work and didn't have time to go back inside to get it. By the time I got home, it was gone.

Today I read an article about an advocacy group trying to encourage the use of German over English or "Denglish" in Germany. I think my favorite part was this quote. "I'm not only trying to protect German, but English too... The English language is not just a pile of rubble from which we can pick and choose what we want." As a native English speaker my first reaction was "Why not? We do it all the time with other languages." :D
