bugs

Very soon the cicadas should be arriving. I can’t say I’m thrilled. I don’t really care for insects. I don’t know how bad they’ll be, but I hope not too bad. My mom is very freaked out about them and has me imagining having to walk out over beds of cicadas to my cicada covered car. There’s not too many trees right here but there’s one outside the dining room window. It’s kind of a skimpy looking tree that even the birds and squirrels don’t really like so I’m not sure how into it the cicadas will be.
I got called into work tonight from 4:30 till 8. Wasn’t very thrilled about it. I was enjoying my three-day weekend. But that’s $20 I didn’t have before. Watched American Idol. Didn’t get to watch the final of Angel yet. I had my parents tape it since it was on at the same time as AI. I hate when people post things about shows or movies in their LJs without cutting. I didn’t read all of what one girl wrote about Angel, but I caught a few words before I quickly moved the page down.
Tonight at work the keyholder asked me how old I was. I told her 24 and she was like “no way!”. Then she said I’m sure you get that a lot. Which I do all the time. I wasn’t looking extremely old tonight anyway. My hair was back in a fairly high ponytail with a ponytail holder that has a bright orange ribbon on it (looks kind of fifties-ish). I think my bangs make me look younger as well.

  • The cicadas are here in Indiana, and they aren’t that bad. There’s a few here and there and they’re a bit loud at times, but yeah, it’s not as bad as I heard it was going to be. Not sure if it’s going to get any worse, but still, it’s not bad at all!

  • we had cicadas in Greeley and they were just LOUD. and when they started dying off they stunk to high heaven. I don’t know why I haven’t seen them anywhere else in Colorado but I’m not complaining! I’m not a big bug person either. :(

  • the cicadas here in VA don’t really seem to be making too much noise. They’re just all over the place. I thnik there is a cicada cooking contest this weekend, umm..not eating any thank you very much.

  • They are all over in my backyard, on the back of my house, on my roses. Ugh. My Husky keeps trying to eat them. I hate them! I try to kill as many as possible. They aren’t making much noise (yet) though.
