Question of immediate import

santeewelding
Moments ago, I saw a cockroach on the wall. It scurried downward, behind the monitor, too late for me to act.

Momentarily, it showed up with antennae twitching above the keyboard. I whacked it with my TR-recommended swatter. Not hard enough, or I missed. Scurried away, it did.

Absentmindedly, while reading some member dismissing us for talking about talking too much, I put the tumbler to my lips for another sip of sherry.

Lo!

It had fallen in. It struggled against my upper lip.

BLECH !

Do we talk about talking too much?

Should have read all the posts first. I should have known my observation would not be original in a thread this active.

Gets a very amusing expression on her face as she gets sucked out of the Ail Lock Door into Raw Space.

HAL9000 finds it so amusing that he continually sends a Pod out to bring her back in so he can watch it happen again and again.

HAL9000 also doesn't play nice as he will not put a web cam in place so that the rest of us can see it either. :_|

But your story has not to do with the question you pose, unless you took out a conversation with your housemate.

Speaking of which, you seem to have many insectual housemates - Is this by choice?

Seaward, there are the snails. They only come out at night.

Earwigs for me.
It drives me round the twist, flyspray is a must - I don't <b>DO</b> the insect thing, especially spiders.

In summer, I frequently get outdoorsy types which would rather not have come in, but the lights, you know...

Year round, there are a variety of ants, spiders (which don't get the axe unless they get in my way), occasional centipedes and millipedes, and tiny brown things I've never identified.

I'm right on the edge of a woodsy river valley, so things could be mush worse, I suppose. Just a half mile closer to the lake, the air is thick with bugs at night (which also means huge spiders), so I guess I'm lucky in not having to deal with that, either.

Very few mosquitoes in recent years. I wonder why.
