I am not an insect pacifist. Kill them. KILL THEM ALL.  
Somewhere, in the attic of our beautiful house, is a wasp's nest. It's been cold, so the wasps have gone into hibernation, but because it's Texas, it's gotten warm again and they woke up. And somehow, in their cunning little waspy way, they have discovered an entry to the interior of the house. They're still moving really, really slow, though. Like they're drunk. Last night I found one on the comforter OF MY BED (OF MY BED!!!!!!!) and freaked right the crap out. Nolan was there and got that one, but there have been others... one that I trapped in the plantation shutters to await his coming home from work, and one I sucked up with the vacuum. I have had, as they say, E-FREAKING-NOUGH. And I am not kidding. *shudders and screams and flails* I just sent this email to my husband.

I just killed another damn wasp. You MUST do something about it this weekend. HAVE TO. THIS IS NOT IN MY JOB DESCRIPTION.


His reply?

Nolan to me 8:02 AM

Okie Dokie.

In other news, I have a modest, yet respectable 10,523 words for nanowrimo. And 6 nablopomo posts down. Have a good weekend, all.

*hugs* I feel your pain, Carrie. We bought my great-grandmother's house after she died because we spend Christmas in west TN and needed somewhere to stay when we came to town.

Anyway, it's a really old house and the wasps live in the wood (which makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, let me tell you). They're hibernating at Christmas...until we turn the heater on. >.< My first sting, by a bee, hornet or wasp, came when I stepped on one last year.

Needless to say, I was not happy.

So be strong! I'm sure your fearless hubby will vanquish the evil bugs for you! :)

I get the impression that Nolan definitely doesn't appreciate the seriousness of your CAPSLOCKY-NESS. I hope the rest of them stay in the attic.

Go you with the writing!

I called him to reiterate my point and he assured me he was armed to the teeth and would take care of it for me.

Thank you!

Wasps in November have to be destroyed. This is AGAINST nature!

On that note, I was stung in November two years ago. The beast crawled under my comforter and stung me when I put it over my legs to read.

I thought about you the other day when the geese wouldn't GO AWAY! at church.   *shudders*   They are SO not afraid to come up to you and demand food. They also peck/knock on the glass windows of the Sunday School classes demanding for food, too.   O.o   They will follow you to your car!   :O   Needless to say, I was NOT a happy camper. Trying to get away from them AND making sure you don't step in the goose poop! AAARRRRGGHH!

I'm deathly allergic to any bee sting. I would be freaking out, too, hon. Big time.   :/

YAY! Good going with all of that writing! I did apologise at my journal for not encouraging everybody along...I did see where everyone has been so diligent, I just didn't have time to stop and holler.

UGH! I HATE wasps. And am definitely capslocky about them. They're terrible when outdoors but when they're inside your house? ICK!

Get that hubby of yours to do something about them stat. That is a man's job description.
