Leapin' Crickets. [Aug. 24th, 2005|01:30 am]

In the hallway in my house, something black started jumping around on the ground. I turned on the light. It was a cricket, and it looked like this:

I caught it with a transparent cup and a paper plate. I walked it outside and released the cup from the plate. It hopped into the grass.

I'm glad it wasn't a miniature hydra.

That might mean that it is time to thoroughly clean the house.

I hear they spread like weeds, or locusts.

I'll be on the lookout for them. It's been a hot summer. Maybe these mini-mutants thrive on humidity and extended warm climates.

And they drink human blood. And spit liquid fire like the Tanker Bugs from "Starship Troopers".

Paul Verhoeven unleashed the mini-hydras into the US when they crawled into his luggage on a return trip from his homeland.

Damn the Netherlands. Always playing with science, and hydras.

Crickets in the house are extremely good luck. They're gentle creatures who only want to help.

I'm told baby hydras like to hibernate in drawers, like underwear/sock drawers. So maybe you should clean that out first, if you're concerned. Come winter all the crawlies will be dying to get into your drawers. Baby hydras will be the least of your concerns.

I've set the mini-hydra traps. If I catch enough of them, I might decide to attempt mini-hydra ranching. Maybe pet-stores can market them as the new great Christmas gift for parents to their children.

"Now Billy, if you can take care of a hydra, then next year you'll get a hamster."

I did not know that house-crickets are good luck. To date, I've found two of them.

The cricket, or the hydra?

I think I'd be a little worried about mini-hydras, myself.

The fucking cricket all the way man!!!

The hydra would be so cool and patterned to look at.
I may sit and stare at it for 4 hours before it at me and/or I realized I was in some sort of danger.

There's some kind of 'electric snake' in the sky, man
Shoot it!
No, I want to study it's habits

Danger Looming...but I cant say a word

No point mentioning these bats I thought. The poor bastard will see them soon enough for himself

Bats are a rather unpleasent hallucination I must say.
Bad omens. Bad boo-joo omens, man.

Re: Danger Looming...but I cant say a word

Possible.

However, I have seen the statue of Liberty with Nixon's head on it.
I think I'd just read Fear and Loathing On the Campaign Trail '72

Truely, a terrifying experience I must say.

I kept looking over between my friend and the SOL /w Nixon...but I don't think I ever bothered to tell him.

I was fascinated, yet terriffied.
Haha Hallucinagins are a funny bunch.

Wonder what the SOL /w Nixons head implies?
Probably absolutely nothing.

It really was an awesomely random cricket, after I passed the awesomely late night nerves from sleepy-eyed vision of jumping thing in the hallway.
