  1. So sorry!!

    I cannot confirm or deny at this time that the entire editorial staff has been spirited off to another dimension.
  2. Are you a morning person or a night person?
  3. So sorry!!

    Oh dear—that's another issue for the tech team, thanks for bringing that to my attention. For future reference, you can always reach us at cicada@cricketmedia.com—that's actually the email the contact form goes to, anyway. I'm here if you have any additional questions.
  4. So sorry!!

    You may have noticed that we had a long, LONG period of downtime—we are so sorry for any inconvenience. The downtime was due to some super annoying clerical weirdness, but we are BACK, baby! We can now resume our regularly scheduled weirdness.
  5. What's your dream travel destination?
  6. Week of 5/28: CICADA-scope

    Aries: Sure, all your friends and family have been replaced by poorly-concealed malevolent changelings, but all in all you’ve found the change refreshing. Taurus: You have nothing to fear in the woods surrounding grandmother’s house—like many poisonous animals, your bright red hood is a warning. Gemini: At this point, the entity haunting your bathroom is the least of your problems. Cancer: Everyone agrees you have your mother’s eyes and your father’s nose, but nobody’s quite sure which side of the family the tentacles came from. Leo: Someday, your efforts to bring the Tudor ruff back into fashion will be rewarded. Virgo: When at odds with someone, be the bigger person. Be gigantic. Be monumental. Be a thing of planetary magnitude. Look down upon your cowering antagonist with divine indifference. Libra: Feeding the birds is an investment in your future. The birds tally every seed and every slight, and they never, ever forget the score. Scorpio: Your power color is Void. Sagittarius: Nobody needs that many plastic lawn flamingos. Nobody. Honestly, what is wrong with you? Capricorn: Good things come to those who wait. With that in mind, consider participating in a human cryopreservation trial. Aquarius: You’ve spent so long dreaming about what you might find somewhere over the rainbow that you never stopped to consider that maybe there are some things human eyes were never meant to see. Pisces: The stars advise you to learn how to build a fire using a couple sticks and a piece of string. Also, invest in a few dozen hand crank lanterns and a bullhorn. Just... trust them. images © xenia_ok/Shutterstock.com; painterr//Shutterstock.com
  7. How do you sign your emails?
  8. Are you thinkin' what I'm thinkin'?
  9. Your weekly CICADA-scope!

    It's that time of week again.
  10. Week of 5/15: CICADA-scope

    Aries: Most people would be creeped out by a derelict battleship found mysteriously drifting with no crew, but you’re willing to put up with a lot for free rent. Taurus: When you’re backed into a corner, don’t be afraid to show your teeth. All of your teeth. Your hundreds and hundreds of teeth. Gemini: Your practice of channeling your stress and anger into gardening has resulted in incredibly anxious chives and passive aggressive rosemary. Cancer: Like the rest of your crustaceous kind, you will eventually outgrow your current protective shell and must find a new one. Leo: You’ve definitely got some skeletons in your closet—make the best of the situation by dressing them up in cute crocheted hats and bowties. Virgo: You’re not really sure why you stand in the same spot in town day after day shouting FINE ARMOR AND SWORDS! every time a certain person walks by, and you’re not really sure where you go when you aren’t doing that. You think about it sometimes, but every time you get close to understanding something about your situation that person walks by again and all your thoughts are chased away by FINE ARMOR AND SWORDS! Libra: The stars would like to remind you that you’ve got 206 bones in your body and you’ll surely be fine without one or two. Scorpio: Prepare for a big surprise in biology class when you learn that most of your peers didn’t spend the first year of their life as an insectivorous aquatic larva. Sagittarius: You’ll soon find out why all of the possums for miles around gather outside your house at night and stare into the windows while you try to sleep. Capricorn: Your compulsion to crowd-surf at every large gathering is going to get you into trouble one of these days. Aquarius: They all mocked you for majoring in bagpiping, but you’ll have the last laugh when they find out how the invading aliens communicate. Pisces: Alleviate your worries about the future by putting your seal skin back on and returning to your people in the ocean. images © xenia_ok/Shutterstock.com; painterr//Shutterstock.com
