Welcome to October! It's my second favorite month. Except for the scary stuff. I don't really do scary stuff, unless it's old movies - which aren't really scary IMO. Except for the original version of The Fly. My siblings used to torture me by saying "Help me. Help me." in a tiny, squeaky voice. :shudder:
On our walk yesterday, we saw a huge black and yellow garden spider. I'd only ever seen one once before. This year, I've seen three around here. It's a banner year for spiders. And tent worms. I hate tent worms more than spiders. :shudder:
You know how sometimes you see someone on TV shoving their gun down the front of their pants? Yeah, bad idea. Well, yesterday, I saw a news story of a guy who accidentally shot his own penis. Darwinism at work.
Still waiting for the bald eagles to arrive.
I used to have long nails all the time. Mine grow really fast and I'm not inclined to cut them unless one breaks or they get annoying. I decided to let them grow again - until one of the two factors came into play. I'm about at the point of annoyance to whack them all off. They're pretty and I'm great at opening things right now, but they're making typing interesting. Problem is, once I cut them, I'll have to get used to typing short-nailed again. I'll probably wait until after Fertile Ground is finished. So today or tomorrow.
Finished an awesome book yesterday - Vulcan's Kittens by Cedar Sanderson (no relation). It's as fun as the title promises. Not that it's a humorous book. It's not. But it's damn good, has an interesting premise, and a unique spin on mythology. I really needed this book, too. Just the right break from my own writing to make me feel refreshed. Yay.
Yesterday when Hubs removed the window AC unit in the garage for winter storage, we found a big brown bat on the window ledge underneath. Poor baby. Hubs nudged him off so he wouldn't fly inside, and then I went outside with a box to move Bat Masterson to a safer location for the remainder of the day. Here's hoping he flew away last night and found better lodgings this morning.
What's on the this n that downlow for you today?
