docrix: I have a serious, deep, passionate love for ladybgus. 2 had sex on my skirt once. I considered it the good luck charm of all good luck charms!
docrix: I just set this photo as my desktop wallpaper :)
sean dreilinger: thanks, dr. rixman. so nice to meet somebody who really likes ladybugs.

i always thought my mother loved ladybugs. last month she told me the real story about how she came to receive a lot of ladybug-themed gifts.

my mother once lived in an apartment infested with so many cockroaches, she took to doodling cockroaches on her walls, floor, furniture, even the dinner table. that way she didn't have to know which bugs were real cockroaches and which were Art.

when her college friends caught her sketching disgustingly realistic cockroaches on her school notes, etc., she adjusted her drawings to resemble ladybugs. then everyone thought it was cute and started giving my mother ladybug gifts.
docrix: Ok, that's kind of a really gross story about your mom. Ha - she probably hated that she couldn't just forget about those disgusting cockroaches, no one would let her!
