Springy [Apr. 7th, 2010|11:42 pm]
The earwigs are out. They crawl here and there. I'd prefer them to stay there and not come here, but they have free will and will do as they please. Every time one of my leg hairs gives a twitch I envision an earwig crawling on me. It's unnerving.

Happier news is that the day was mild and I was able to leave the windows open for a couple of hours this afternoon. Tomorrow it will be too cold again, but Friday might be warm. Less happy news is that a considerable amount of pollen has arrived along with the the warmth (and the earwigs), so I'm sneezing. The earwigs are apparently immune to the stuff. Another reason to hate them.

Oh, and I went shopping and forgot things again. April is distracting. So many birds. Why haven't they eaten the earwigs?

birds are so undependable. when we had an invasion of tent moths years ago, the birds seemed as creeped-out by the furry caterpillars as we were and refused to eat them, leaving all of them free to eat every leaf on every tree in preparation for becoming moths. i never forgave the birds their dereliction.

We have birds coming onto the back porch and eating the cat food... and leaving some of it behind as droppings. So not only am I displeased by the failure of the birds to eat the earwigs, I'm displeased by the failure of the cats to eat the useless birds— though I must admit that Alger certainly tries to eat the birds. He just isn't very good at catching them.
