Default They're baaaaack.

Warning: don't click if creepy bugs creep you out and make you feel creepy. Because this is one creepy freakin' creep.

These things are STALKING me inside my house!

I just killed one.
I am going to die. If they start marching down the hallway again, one by one, like they did last year...I'm telling you. I will freaking die.

I should have taken the advice and MOVED the hell out of here.

Have you tried fogging your house or using an exterminator? I'm not usually creeped out by bugs, but that is one ugly dude.

No, because last year, we finally found where they were getting in and we fixed it. Now, I am hoping that this guy just jumped in while the door was open. Sometimes our dogs will nudge the back screen door open if I don't lock it. I'm really, really, really hoping this is just an isolated incident.

I don't know, something like that.

eta: it's probably not a "carmel" cricket.

Camel. Camel cricket.

Mine disappeared since I had to have exterminators to get rid of some carpenter ants. Which also got rid of the box elder bugs, which made me very happy. Those little SOBs were prolific outside -- clusters of bugs make me SICK.

I just looked it up. Man, those suckers look evil. They're like little Darth Maul bugs.

Ok, I'll get the Aerobed inflated and made up and start baking the cookies for us to munch on while we watch movies.

Seriously, I'm such a weenie when it comes to bugs if we had those things I'd probably just pass out.

Where's Mr. Yagotta this time?

I also vote for those bug speaker things. Worked great at my house. Also keeps rodents out during the winter.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

I did.


ok. I lied. I really didn't. I was kinda hoping you'd feel sorry for me and let me have all the cookies we bake.
