The Very Quiet Crickets

We came home today from school and work and... Ghecko ate the last of the crickets.

He binged again today.

We went from going every five to six days to buy 'live food' to going every TWO days.

Love that.

So. Our solution?

Tomorrow we are buying TWENTY-FOUR crickets, Mr. T is going to let them ALL loose in Ghecko's cage, and then we'll see how long they last. Mr. T thinks he's eating out of boredom. I'm wondering if he's not been getting enough to eat, that one cricket is not enough, but it should be two or three a day.

So we'll see. More to come. I think that the 24 crickets will last four days.

Hmmm.

Oh and from TGOO to my boys, a little video. My boys have agreed, "Nasty".

Step seven: Leave the finished cookies out on the living room table with a few crumbs as if you've been eating them and they are just like any other chocolate chip cookies. Your guests will love them!

Seriously, my brother did the above with dog treats that look like little hot dogs. This was to get a freeloader to quit eating at his house.

My favorite way to get rid of guests is to let a dog lick a plate, and then put the plate back up with the rest of the clean plates as if this is what you do all the time.

The guys were watching some food show the other night about weird candy. One of the stores mentioned was in Pismo Beach, CA named Hotlix.

FYI - From their website Hotlix dot com:
HOTLIX® is the original edible insect candy creator. For over 20 years HOTLIX® has been making people cringe with delight with their outrageous confections featuring real insects embeded inside the candy!

No thanks.

My Mom ate chocolate covered ants once, so I reckon some people will feast on anything as long as it's dunked in something palatable.

Earlier this summer, I sent two of my boys scorpion lollipops and Sour Cream and Onion flavored Crickets. I haven't heard if they have tried them or not. Bored Marines will try almost anything.
