mmm Brains

Morning, Kittens!

I had jury duty yesterday. It was nothing like Law & Order, by the way. For one thing the courtroom was like the size of my closet. Okay, maybe the size of the kitchen, but you get the idea. And there were like 80 people crammed in there. I haven't been "empaneled" (that jury talk for "jumped in") but neither have I been dismissed, so my civic duty continues.

J has jury duty today. You know what the difference between men and women is? Yesterday, when *I* had jury duty, I took the remainder of the day to clean the back yard, vacuum and shampoo the carpets, clean the bathroom and kitchen, do two loads of laundry and pay the bills due today. And what did my husband do? SLEEP IN. What the fuck, y'all?

None of this is what I want to tell you though.

What I WANT to tell you is that I have a fucking bug bite on my fucking eye lid. That means that a bug CRAWLED AROUND ON MY FACE until it decided that my eyelid was the juiciest place to feast and then IT BIT ME ON THE FUCKING EYE LID. A bug. ON MY EYE. I'm still skeeved out. What if it crawled into my mouth? What if it crawled into my ear and now I've got bug larvae in my brain and then they eat through my grey matter and I go all crazy and then bugs start spilling out of my head holes? IT COULD HAPPEN.

For now though, I just look like I've been working on my MMA moves unsuccessfully. Which would be a whole lot more bad ass than potentially having bugs noming on my brains.

send a picture.

Bella caught a fly in her mouth yesterday, sat there with it in there for a few minutes, I yelled 'swallow it!" and she opened her mouth and it flew out.
Flies are made of Kryptonite.

YUCK -- and please post a photo.

OK, crazy side story to your snake in a toilet post. I was on vacation & we went to this sculpture garden/museum. the bathrooms were in the woods. Plumbed, working sink, a door. But NO ROOF! Just a tree canopy, which is nice. But I swear to God, I thought of that post & lifted the lid, expecting to see a snake!! I even flushed before I used it -- Just In Case!!!

Trust me on this: there are worse places a bug can bite you.

How exactly does one "clean" a backyard? I mean, mine is full of dirt and grass and leaves and squirrels and nature. Also there is dog poo. Point being, it is pretty hard to "clean" anything outdoors, since clean generally means 'to remove dirt'.

Sounds like you had your mosquito net inside-out.
