Holy Freaking Crap!

Preteens should be approached with extreme caution.

Hornets as well.

I was stung by both today. Both hurt like hell, and both seem to have taken over my house.

Perhaps I should let them pay the mortgage.

Regarding the hornets, the nest is actually attached to my front window. As horrifying as that is when I'm out watering the flower bed, it's actually a very interesting view from inside the house; it is a complete cross section. National Geographic stuff.

I attempted some photos of the little beasts crawling around in their nest, hovering over white blobs of something, likely little baby beasts, meaning I'm quite infested.

They didn't turn out very well, but I may post what I've got. Very wild.

Regarding the preteen? Well, at least I received an apology from that particular beast. And she even filled an ice bag for this huge, splotchy feverish sting on my thigh. She has her moments. (Maybe I'll give her doorknob back to her.)

As for the nest, I believe I've researched it enough. Tomorrow they must die.

Broken arms, now hornet stings. What's next? Amoebic dysentery?

Just remember, if you pick up a tapeworm, call V-Man. He'll be all over it.

I think Eric has a side job, uh, fascination with "extermination". I'd call him for the critter problem. He'll observe, then kill. Then grill.

As for the preteen... Enjoy it it while it lasts Key. They only go from preteens to teens. And once the 8 teen... game over man.

I'll take the broken arm and the hornet sting. Wanna trade places?
