That’s Crazy Talk

Posted 2012.04.25 8.31 in DID, Pointless Blather by Stephanie

It’s been spider-weather lately. That whole spring showers thing – the 8-legged beasties are thawing out and waking up, then the rain drives them indoors.

I don’t approve of spiders. The creepiness of a creature is directly proportional to the number of legs it has. Extra eyes and wearing its skeleton on the wrong side are just additional strikes.

So lately I have like a dozen spiders roaming my livingroom ceiling. Quite brazenly too, they aren’t waiting till dark to scurry about. They’re strutting around like they own the place.

I’m not Ok with this, but I’m not running around trying to squash them either.¬†For one thing, the ceiling is 9ft high so they’re hard to reach.

I’ve been worried that they’ll move into my bedroom. That’s where I draw the line. I can’t sleep while there’s spiders prancing around on the ceiling above me. I was just thinking this morning, how glad I am that they haven’t come into the bedroom yet.

Then that other part of my mind speaks up. The crazy part.

What if they are already in the bedroom and you just can’t see them yet?
Invisible spiders is a stupid idea.
Not invisible, but like, they don’t show up in normal light. Maybe they’re only noticable under a different kind of light?
You mean like a blacklight? Like how some scorpions are florescent? Spiders are related to scorpions.
Exactly. Get your blacklight and shine it around the bedroom, especialy the ceilings and corners.
Oh gods no, what if the ceiling is covered in invisible florescent spiders?!

And just like that, my normal rational line of thinking has been ursurped by the little crazy, and now I’m paranoid about blacklights in the bedroom incase I suddenly discover it’s full of invisible pseudo-scorpions.

A Lesson Learned

Recently, I’ve been thinking about some custom T-shirt designs. So the conversation this morning went something like this:

Me: Hey cat, how’d you like to be on a T-shirt?

Misha: Meh. I was on a bunch of T-shirts last night, it’s nothing special.

Me: … Um what?

Misha: On the sofa. They were comfy.

Sometimes, I’m a bit lazy and my clean clothes get from the dryer to the sofa (where I sort them out) but then don’t quite get from the sofa to the closet or dresser.

Me: You were sleeping on my clean clothes. I should have put them away.

Misha: They’re not clean.

Me: Yes they are, I just did laundry the other day remember?

Misha: No, I mean, I was sick last night.

Me: …

Misha: Not my fault. You should have put them away.

And Then a Fortnight Passed

It’s like suddenly, it’s two weeks later. Only it wasn’t so sudden, as such.

It was more drawn out, boring, and quiet. Except when it wasn’t. Month end is always busy, and this time it was on a Monday, which makes it more “fun”, and then we had a bunch of issues which made the “fun” even more better. It was the “funnest” Monday in ages.

And that open windows day from March only lasted like 2 days, then it got cold again. Cold enough that I had to turn the furnace back on, and every day since then I’ve been hoping it’ll go back to being consistantly warm again.

C’mon weather, make me happy!

We could use more storms too. Cold damp grey drizzle is not inspiring. Sky-ripping thunder and lightning is inspiring. And invigorating. And exciting.

Anyhow, so basically this is just an update to say that there hasn’t been anything worth reporting or mentioning. A non-update. A nope-date.
