Creepy Crawly

More bug stuff. Last night Anubis was sniffing the living room carpet right next to the chair I was sitting in. I looked down and saw a pissed off scorpion ready to strike. Now most sane people would have smashed it without a second thought. What do I do? I grab my tweezers from my Swiss Army knife and try to pick it up. The little bastard clung to the carpet. Finally I got it picked up by the tail and carried it outside where I turned it loose. Like I said in an earlier post, I have a soft spot for those guys. Maybe if Predators come to Earth they will spare me for respecting their cousins. Aren't they supposed to be related somehow? I'm basing that on the first movie.

In other creepy crawly news zen and I ran into our first rattlesnake of the year last week. We were walking Anubis up on the mesa when I heard a quick rattle. About 10 feet off the road was a rattler getting itself into a strike position. We watched it. It watched us. We continued our walk. Zen was afraid I was going to do my Crocodile Hunter impersonation and try to pick it up. Nah. I'm not that nuts.
