i'm not one who is generally afraid of insects. i'm a big fan of bees and spiders and of course i adore those glittery green beetles that careen about the garden even if they have the ugliest larvae around.

that said, i just threw the biggest freak out ever as a result of some critter that crawled along my ear just a moment ago. here, at home, while researching for a class assignment. in my ear. i felt it's legs first and then HEARD it, heard its weird buggy call and i wigged out. completely and utterly threw the biggest freaking fit. that thing must have been partying about on my head, in my hair, on my person.

i think i need to take another shower.

i can't find the poor thing's remains. i must have smooshed it really good. i wonder what it was...scratch that, reverse it. i don't want to know.


  1. ack!
    that is creepy. bugs do not belong near my head or anywhere close to my ears!!!


  2. Ok. You just resurrected a long dead memory. Am going to blog about it right this minute! I hope you don't mind, I'm going to link back to this post.

    I feel your pain. ICK!

  3. super creepy! i like to look at them, just not have them um in my ear!

  4. oh and i can't wait to see what you write!

  5. am still all squicky! gaaaaa!
    Ok I posted it! BLAH!

  6. Just too many icks to say about this one. Why can't all bugs be butterflies and honey bees and live in other people's yards?

  7. ps- i'd have to find the remains but only after the Mr. comes homes. ewww.
