(NOTE: I did not take either of these pics. The first one I would have shit my pants and killed the mr.legs before getting close enough to take a pic and the second one well, I tend to get bit by fox snakes when I attempt at catching them. Or just disturbing their home without intentionally knowing. They are both off of a stock photo site ww.sxc.hu)
Been real busy. I can't wait until I get to go on vacation in August. I need one so bad.
Anyway lately theres been a lot of creepy crawlies around here. Not that I don't like spiders or any of that. I don't mind them but theres one species that absolutely gives me the shivers.
Mr.Legs. You know, the tan with black stripes and 6328748032704832 legs. Better known as centipedes. uugghhh... I hate them.
One of the water taps broke at work. I had to go into the pump house and shut the main water off. I open the door and turn on the light. There sitting on the tap is THE BIGGEST MR.LEGS I HAVE EVER SEEN! I shreiked and shuddered. Now if you know me I am not the girly, screaming, "omg get the bug off me or I am going to explode" type. I tend to smush stuff and go about my day. Not with Mr.Legs. They give me the shivers every time. Just looking at that picture makes me shudder. Anyway back to Mr.Legs, or Mammoth Mr.Legs as I called it. SIX FRIGGN INCHES LONG!! I just about had a heart attack. Before I could kill it he legged away in a second.
The next day I came back. Armed with a can of raid and a bucket brush I opened the pump house. There was Mammoth Mr.Legs waving his 6382947903278 legs at me. With him was a family of significantly smaller legs Jr. Mammoth legs met my bucket brush, legs Jr. met mr.raid.
End of story. I HAAAATTTTEEE those things.
Today I was baling straw. I got there a bit late because I was working. I was hopping over windrows of straw when I step square on A BIG FOX SNAKE! A good 3 inches around and I am not afraid of snakes. I even used to play with them as a child. Fox snakes are not poisonous but they are mean. They also immitate rattlers which has make them endangered. When people began killing rattlers they got the blame. Poor fox snakes. Anyway I stepped on him, he lunged out, catching me by suprise. I leapt right over the whole windrow and he darted into it. My dad was driving the tractor. He is sitting there going "what the heck is her problem" as I just about jump out of my skin. I've been bit before by a fox snake. Good thing real rattlers are scarce around here and we don't have many more.
Not much else going on around here unless you want to hear about my 16 page research paper I have to write.
Oh I got my camera back oh how I missed thee.
