The Buzzz Kill

Posted 2012.02.09 8.31 in Pointless Blather

So yesterday afternoon I get home from work, and go into the kitchen to put away some fresh bread I’d bought on the way home.

Then I notice on the wall, this big fly who’s been bugging me for the last two days. I don’t know where he came from, it may not be a frigid winter but it’s still not fly-weather outside. Nonetheless, here he is.

Anyhow, he’s sitting there seemingly oblivious of my presense, even though I’m actually standing very close to him. I wonder, maybe he’s asleep and hasn’t realized that he is not alone?

So I suddenly make jazz-hands at him as I exclaim “Hey FLY!

And I swear, he was so startled he fell off the wall. Not ‘he flew away’ but he literally fell off the wall, bonked onto the counter, and only after bouncing off the counter did he get his wings moving and flew off.

I startled a fly!

Fastwind to later in the evening. I was sitting at my desk, plugging away on the computer, absorbed in converting some cpp-ish code into standard c. Then from out behind the computer comes crawling some big black buggy thing, coming right at the keyboard, right at my fingers! I swear it was growling “Grawr, I am a SPIDER, grawr!

I admit it, I jumped, and yanked my hands back away from the keyboard. Then he stuck out his tongue at me and flew off.

The cunning little buggy bastard, had even got some dust from behind the computer to trail behind him to make it look like he had 8 legs instead of 6.

The fly startled me.

What’s Worse

What’s worse than having a giant spider living in your kitchen by the window above the sink?

When the giant spider living in your kitchen by the window above the sink suddenly goes missing.

Cos now not only do I know there’s a giant spider, but I no longer know where he’s at.

I named him Skeletor. Before he went missing. On account of his huge bony knee joints.

Giant spiders have a lot of knee joints.

I’m not a fan of spiders.

Like A Horror Movie

Imagine you’ve run out of coffee fixings. You’re tired, and grumpy. You’re on the way to the coffee shop to get your morning fix. You turn down the road that leads to caffein, only to see the ‘road closed’ signs in the distance.

As your brain is slowly processing the signs, your eyes drift upwards to some movement on the sunvisor.

Scarriest F***ing Thing On The ‘Net Today

Surfing the web, alot of fun and interesting things can be found. Following one link to another, page to page, can lead to surprising and amazing things.

And it can, on occasion, lead to some intensely disturbing and freaky sh*t.

I know it’s just a sculpture, blah blah blah. Whever the hell it is, is a place I don’t wanna go visit. Any city or town that wants to boast having the largest outdoor spider sculpture, is a place that’s paying homage to stuff I want nothing to do with.

Spiders, bugs, creepy-crawlies, icky-wigglies, are things that ought not have giant sculptures, thank you very much.

Aaaaagggghhhhhh!
