What? A rant about penguins wearing sweaters on a Friday? Science news on a Wednesday? Doesn’t this woman know how important routine is to preschoolers? What the heck is going on?

Obviously, Caterpickles Central has been invaded by mind-control zombie parasites, who are making it impossible for us to keep quiet any longer about:

Or maybe we’re just giddy that those crazy Aussies have found a way to make a health food out of sugar.

Whatever it is, we think it’s safe to say that we’re pretty excited about the news of the week and didn’t want to wait until Friday to share it.


About Shala Howell

I write about wildly curious kids, rabbits who hunt dragons, and 1880s Boston. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), I blog about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, muse about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, or tweet about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
