Happy 5th Bloggiversary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111eleven  

It was 5 years ago today that I first started the Invasive Species Weblog. It took less than a week after that for the puns and general snarkiness to start leaking in. Thank you, readers, for all the visits, comments and post suggestions. Five feels old in internet years!

How will I be celebrating this 5-year-bloggiversary? By getting a root canal. :-( While I am hopped up on Valium and being tortured by my endodontist, I thought I would hold a contest:

Write me an Invasive Species Haiku and post it below. Best one wins the author a prize.

I'll start:

For you, dear readers
Invasive Species Weblog
Full of aliens

Labels: , ,


I'm not up for haiku right now, but do want to wish you a happy blogiversary -- you were one of the blogs that prompted me to start myself, a fact that might inspire more snarkiness when readers find you are partly responsible for my drivel!

Human years? Don't say.

Monk Parakeets are
Brooklyn's most charismatic
invasive species.

Outside my window,
starlings, sparrows and pigeons.
More fun with haiku.

Cuscuta. Dodder
Pale, alien spaghetti.
I will eat your trees.

Advanced in science
Stuck in Middle School humor
Nice combination

Assessing myself
I find my love for this blog
Is most troubling

This faithful reader
Must conclude the invasion
Has taken your mind

Sent from the future
To warn us about dangers
Jenn is a robot

Barberrians at the gate

Remorseless vetch climbs
Pale spring colors reach for sun
Green and purple sea
