Ugh. the flies are starting to drive me crazy! They are everywhere! I hate especially when they are buzzing around my ear at night, or when I'm at the computer and they land on my hands. In the past, they haven't bothered me much. But when its an infestation, I get kind of grossed out. I keep on thinking "every time a fly lands it poops". I don't know where I heard that, but I really feel gross and dirty. AND, I don't really have many means of irradicating them either, aside from the trusty fly swatter. I really wanted those sticky roll things to hang up, but I couldn't find them. I've also tried a bottle with sugar water in the bottom - that attracted and killed about 5, but I need something more effective. I bought this plug in thing that is supposed to keep flies out, but it really only works for the smaller rooms and only for 6 hours at a time (then you have to change the dinky little pad thingy).
I spent half the night saturday night killing them. Like, standing beside the wall and stalking them until they landed, then killing them in cold blood. If they even have blood. I think I took down like, 26 in total. And I didn't feel like picking them all up so now there is a billion little fly carcasses laying around. The root problem is that we do not have screens on any of the windows. Its not so bad to keep the patio downstairs closed, because its nice and cool, but upstairs gets lots of sunlight so we have to keep some open. i went to Home Depot to look at getting some screen material of some sort - hell, I'll duck tape it if I have too - but like a big idiot i forgot the measurements.....DOH!
Other things that bother me - when people try to make it through the almost red light, and end up stuck in the middle of the intersection blocking your GREEN LIGHT!!!! COME ON people - I understand if there is plenty of room past the intersection - go ahead, speed up and make the light - but if its practically red, and there are already people IN the intersection - THAT DOESN'T MEAN ITS OK FOR YOU TO PARK YOUR ASS THERE TOO!!!!!!!!!!! Then, people behind me start honking thier horns incessantly, like its going to help the other dickweeds in the intersection move. It happens on an almost daily basis, and it makes me want to shoot myself. UGH!
Guess thats all the bitchin for me, for right now anyway. Today was weigh in day - down 1.5 pounds....I need to break this stupid 160 barrier - I've been loosing and gaining the same 5 pounds for the past two months it feels like. But, overall, I've lost 13.5 pounds in 12 weeks, so i guess thats exactly how your supposed to do it, right?
