Ants on Diets

Hmmm, do you think ants are attracted to low-calorie artifical sweeteners? Like, if you left an open packet of Equal or Splenda out, would they go for it? I dunno, the thought just crossed my mind in the shower one morning.

Speaking of ants, I just got my NASA Space-Age Gel Ant Farm. http://www.antworkstoys.com/

Now I'm waiting for the ants to arrive.

Uh ... seriously? You're buying yourself an ant farm? Sorry, how old are you again?

And I don't care if it's got space-technology blue gel with lights on it; it's still a bunch of ants. If you want ants, come over: we have some in the office and a few at my place. I'm sure we could spare you a farm's worth.

Clearly, I missed out on a few things as an adolescent...

I didn't have an ant farm either, but I don't feel like I missed out; there's something about keeping a tub full of creepy-crawlies that just doesn't tinkle my bell, kna'mean??

But yes, when your ants start tunneling, send up a photo or something! I will admire from afar.
