I am going to blow up the house and move to the fucking moon.
A few years ago, I sat down to work at my job and finally got around to taking my shoe off to fix one of those weird, uncomfortable creases you get sometimes with those thin dress socks , only to find that it wasn't a sock crease, but rather a huge centipede clinging to the top of my foot since I had left the house that morning.
The type of scorpion they have in Arizona goes on ceilings, and sometimes fall. And their venom is a lot worse than what's in most of the Cali desert. I read one story of a woman who had a mother with a bunch of babies on its back fall on her from the ceiling while she was in bed. So you're doing nothing and the next second a bunch of baby scorpions and one adult one are all over you going nuts. #Arizona
My house is filled with sprickets
and the wolf spiders that eat them.
Though sometimes, they eat themselves! If they can't find enough to eat, they've been known to eat their own legs.
One wolf spider was hiding under a halloween mask my husband had dropped on the floor in our carriage house, and when he picked it up there was a whole pile of dead bugs he'd accumulated.
I've only found one centipede. Millipedes, however, are in abundance.
The daddy long legs seem to have retired for the season, but they used to occupy our back porch and hang out on all the baseboards around the house.
The katydids and walking sticks are cool.
These are not. I found one on our cellar door this spring.
I finally ordered one of these because I'm kind of over it.
