A Terrible Mildness [Feb. 9th, 2005|08:09 pm]
rejectomorph
More inexplicable warmth on the way, and the days already sing with the flutter of hummingbird wings. The numbers of the ants are growing, too, and they have begun to invade the kitchen. Every night I must execute many of them where they crawl, and the smell of the formic acid crushed from their bodies lingers for hours following each slaughter. I don't want to use insecticide in the kitchen, and I can't find the place from which they enter the house, so it's hand-to-antenna combat, night after night. I wonder that I don't have nightmares.

The infection has been fought to a draw for the moment, and I now have no more than a runny nose, though I must consider the possibility that this symptom is not of viral origin, but the result of the vigorous false spring which has caused so many flowers to bloom prematurely. It may be merely the usual allergies arriving early. Not wishing to take chances, I'll assume it is in fact viral, and continue to spend most of my time in the warmer part of the house, leaving Sluggo to sleep and (most likely) dream of my destruction.

Sluggo Dreams

I don't believe he dreams of your destruction. He may plot your destruction but I bet he doesn't dream about it. What does Sluggo dream about? Finding himself at the computer store without his case on. Extra ram and the computer gods riding on subways across the Arizona desert and, of course, the standard "getting caught while defragging" anxiety dream.

Re: Sluggo Dreams

You know your contribution to western culture can't be underestimated. I'm going to tell my grandkids, "I was there, I read the first instance where defragging was equated with masturbation for computers. I knew it would be a hit right from the start."

Re: Sluggo Dreams

Sluggo defrags right in front of me all the time, and does scan disc as often as he pleases. He is shameless.
