Night of 2,000 Crickets

Cricket Update! The order arrived safely and loudly! A chorus of chirping greeted me at the house this afternoon. I biked home during my lunch break, (thank goodness I only live two miles away from my office) and found 2 boxes full of 2,000 happy and healthy crickets. I'm sure the delivery person was not amused by these loud packages.

Here's a close-up of the full-grown babies! Yikes! I had to put the boxes outside in the backyard, their song making was just too loud and I was concerned that our dog, Hamlet, would go a bit bonkers trying to see, smell and have a smackerel of Jiminy and his 1,999 friends!

The plan now - when I get home tonight, after a long day at the office and a shift at Williams-Sonoma, is to have the critters go gently into the night, by introducing them to Mr. Freezer. Please, baby, Please - feel free to leave your (clean) comments here and don't forget to contact me if you are even remotely interested in partaking in the great cricket cook-off of 2008! Email me at: I'm hoping to hold this cricket tasting expo over the next week.
