    Two black (harmless but big) snakes were nice enough to visit me on my porch today...

    A black widow made sure to visit my bathtub.

    A wolf spider was nice enough to visit my room.

    And two more big hairy spiders which I cannot identify were just lurking around.

    And a gecko fell from the ceiling on my head today.

    ... I do not have the heart to take their poor lives away, so I think that a good hour of my day was spent trying to get those guys out of my house.

    I got the snakes out of my porch using a broom to scare them away, one of the fuckers came right at me out of confusion, I had to jump on a damn couch.

    The black widow was very reluctant to leave my bathtub, so I had to chase him all over the bathroom splashing water at it until it went out of the window I opened just for it.

    I had to make the spider in my room climb on a stick I was holding and took it outside.

    The two big hairy spiders were escorted out by having each of them catch onto an old golf club that's laying around here... and then I was nice enough to take them outside, and let them off on a tree, for kicks.

    They are out to get me man.

    I live in the middle of damn nowhere on agriculturalish land... they are actually coyotes nearby, I hear them once in a while.

    Geckos rule pal. ESPECIALLY if they fall on your head.

    No, even worse... Florida.

    I swear, they say that there are no coyotes here, but they lie... all of my co-workers have heard/ seen them... but people still say they ain't here.

    I don't believe em.

    Damn gecko falling on my head half an hour ago really took the need for sleep away from me. I was all relaxed, but man... I'm telling you... those fuckers are after me today.

    Yeah, I haven't killed anything on purpose in lots of years... not even ants, I make sure to look down to see if I'm stepping on something :p.

    ...and I don't mind them most of the time, but today it was truly poisonous animal overload.

    I feel sorry for you, man! You gotta kill those bitches (black widows)! They hate men! lol! :)

    You need someone to spray around where you live. It sounds infested! Aaack!

    I killed the first bug the other day that I killed in years. It was a spider was big that it scared me so much that I acted as a reflex. I felt bad then... I usually like spiders. This thing was wicked though.
  13. I hate killing bugs, mainly because they make a weird sqish sound, so i like the "trap them in a cup and let them go" method, although today there was this huge bee in my window and i was scared, cuz he didnt look like a "wood bee" or whatever, he looked like regular bee except without the stripes, but he was effing huge, and he was on my screen so i shut the window and he is still there trapped between the screen and the window. Once I did that to a fly, and I would give him chocolate chips, but I don't think he ate them cuz he died :( he was my pet....

    I also saved a mouse from a snake once and I had him for like a year before he died. I named him Mickey, and he made my room smell...

    I get it sprayed monthly... but man, it's the wilderness, they are everywhere.

    I think that the hairy spiders I saw could be brown recluse, which would suck a bit because those are venomous. Maybe they are just wolf spider varieties, which are a tad less venomous.

    Anyhow, mothas are big big big.

    All those things would freak me out. The snakes, I couldn't have killed them or shooed them away, cuz I'da been running & screaming like a 2 year old girl. The wolf spider, I would have ran & got someone else to kill it, so it wouldn't jump on me or anything. (Did you know those things hiss?) & the smaller spiders, I would have killed, but freaked out if it jumped or ran fast. I don't do well with creepy things. And if a lizard fell on my head, fuck i'd have a heart attack or something.

    I must admit that I did jump the fuck out of my bed when the gecko fell on me, because I thought that it was another spider, but then I saw it running away... big gecko too... they feast on the flies here... the only place where I have seen bigger gecko was my house in Honduras, where they would just sit outside and literally have mosquitoes go into their mouths every second.

    all the critters are one of the things i really miss about living out in the boonies like i did growing up. not on a farm but out in the real boonies, because my dad worked for the railroad as towerman/telegrapher/clerk, in all the little podunk stations there used to be along the way. especialy where the railroad goes through the boonies a long way from and between towns of any real size.

    i mean it's not like you saw hundreds of all kinds of creatures as big or bigger then a cat every day, but we did get them comming into our yard and then of course going for long walks by myself like i always did. even on my way to school those few mornings i missed the bus. rural school bus that is. there weren't any other bussess besides the greyhound on the main highway and the trains that there still were at least one local passinger service most places where there were rails, and every place my dad worked.

    our cats used to kill rattle snakes, i watched them do so more then once.
    two cats like a team. people who think cats never do that arn't as observant as they think they are.

    we had other kinds of snakes too. friendly little green garter snakes with yellow racing stripes. we didn't have geckos. just one kind of salamander. and then lizzards, the kind that could run away from their tails and grow a new one. and what we called horney toads which were of course actualy a kind of lizzard also.

    foxes, skunks, porcupines, squirels, chipmunks, moles and voles and mice and rats, all pretty common. and deer. wolves and coyotes supposedly didn't exist arround there at all. though wolves, well i did get to meet one once. really cool actualy. and mountian lions, what everybody called cougars or pumas, all names for the same kind of medium 'big' cat we had arround there, i got to see a couple of times.

    we also had something called ring tailed pine martins. you hardly ever got to see those. i think they were already endangered even then. and then we had bears, but they mostly stayed up in the even higher elevations then most of the places we usually lived.

    i sure hope mentioning them here doesn't "dam" anything, other then excessive human fertility. that i'd like to see drop way off. we also had a kind of carion bird we called turkey buzzards, because it had this red wattle like a turkey does, except the rest of it was all black. i don't know if that's the same thing as the california condor, but i'm guessing it probably is.
