Bugging Out

Yesterday morning I was suddenly woken up at 5:30 AM by a bug on my bed. I spent an hour keeping vigil in a corner of my room, a broom in one hand and Raid in the other, not daring to get anywhere near the bed. After I killed something with more legs than nature should allow on any creature, I still couldn't go back to sleep. I'm surprised I lasted all day and night without a nap.

Still, when I got home at 4 AM from the club I was ready for sleep. I got into bed and wrapped myself head to toe in my blanket (I'm crazy, not stupid) and passed out.

This morning, I was startled awake again at 9 AM. This time by Toby's rapid fire barking...and the building exterminator at the door on his routine rounds.

Ugh.

  7. I hate bugs. Well, most bugs. Anything with more legs than nature allow on things and big flying ones that can hurt me...I really don't like those!

    Well, at least now you will be able to sleep peacefully knowing all the bugs are dead. Just hope the fumes aren’t too bad.

  12. Someone has got to train Toby to eat, or at least kill, those bugs.

    Did you know that there were around 10,000 species of Millipedes?
