this morning

I expected to woken up by the gardeners and the lawn mowers but it turned out to be someone walking on the roof that did it. I slapped on some clothes to see who it was. It turned out to be 2 guys that were disconnecting and covering up the swamp coolers for the winter. Another 2 guys are about 10 feet from my window... I guess both are supervising, whatever, talking about the price of canvas pants at Old Navy. One is even singing the theme to "Green Acres" in reference to the latest Old Navy commercial. I suppose it's not proper to eavesdrop but then if I didn't how else would I amuse myself? ;o) Hmm, they just got message via walkie-talkie and are leaving. Oh well.

a gunthak moment

I was on my computer getting the next BBP gallery done with "Smallville" playing on the TV just to my left. After a while I noticed movement on my peripheral vision that was too high to be part of the action on TV. Turning my head I saw a big old huge spider crawling up my wall. I ran to get my flyswatter, crept in close to the bug and then proceded to whack the arachnid to a billion pieces.

Ok, I actually did what I just said I did but only after jumping out of my chair and back five feet away -- speaking subjectively of course -- making "ewww!" sounds. Well, at least I didn't scream like a girly-girl. :o) I hate spiders! Actually, I'm getting better about spiders. Years ago I wouldn't have gotten near it but would have instead sprayed it with bug killer from a goodly distance away. I was actually able to watch about 15 minutes on the Learning Channel today about arachnids before I had to change the channel due to the ick! factor.
