(´⌒`。)

We’ve been having the worst weather lately….relatively speaking, the “worst” in Hawaii that is as I know we don’t even have snow here so I really shouldn’t be complaining. 😛 It’s heavy thunder and lightning right now with continuous showers which covered our state for just about all morning, day, and night yesterday…and it was like fog outside with horrible visibility something which is rather rare here except for our vog issues which strike once in awhile while the trade winds are away. >_<

But the real “pain” from the recent inclement weather is how centipedes just find a need to get to drier ground when a bit of outside flooding occurs in the backyard it seems and I got the absolutely worst!!!!!! wake up “call” this morning when one bit me not once but twice while I was asleep! (;_;) And it was on the very same hand in which my thumb suffered the recent fracture at work so it’s now swollen again although it’s gone down a bit with a cold wrap kept on it. It seems that my right hand will never be right again anytime soon! 😦 And the worst part is that I was too afraid to catch it and there was no way I was going to get anywhere near it!!!! They just look so icky and they give me the chills!!! So now it’s still somewhere in the house…..maybe my room…I don’t know and I was just reading that there are usually two of them at a time as they….um travel in ‘pairs?!’ :O And thank goodness the poison isn’t too bad although that hurt a lot. At first I was like OMG! I’m poisoned! (;_;)……but then I read it’ll be okay.. 😛 But how will I fall asleep now knowing it’s somewhere just waiting to bite me again! (´⌒`。) Itai!!!!!!!!!!!! Not good really really not good! 😦

    Sorry luv! Bad bug!! I would have disposed of said monsters, if i could. :(Bite MB's hand, just not acceptable! I know how these things affect you… Are there centipede "Motels"? So they check in, but they don't check out? 😉 Maybe make paper cones around your bed legs (pointing down) so they can't climb up?I send my anti-pede karma to deter the little buggers anyway…

    oh my gosh! edward bit your hands..*twilight* hehe 😀 just joking… seriously, i thought centipedes are harmless. waaah! that's so scary. be careful. you probably should sleep on a higher place for now just to be safe.hope your hand gets better soon.. as well as the weather. although the weather is really strange nowadays. in our place, we have whole day rain the other day and yesterday the sun was shining brightly.. and this has been going on for more than a week now..really weird!

  9. Spiders scare me too and I know those can be really really poisonous and not knowing which ones makes it even more worrisome! It's still really gray outside but the rain has let up for now but it sort of looks like there'll be more on the way. 😦 It's awful, there's so much flooding on parts of the island including homes and farmers crops. 😦 The swelling is gone so I'm happy about that but it just seems that bad luck finds me sometimes. :/

  10. LOL at first I was thinking…..'Edward' dare? 😛 I do tend to sleep on the floor Japanese style….well actually the room's gotten so crowded that a bed won't fit in there anymore! >_< Kyaaa! I had to get online to see if centipedes are really poisonous as I had no idea….but luckily the poison isn't too strong so they just said to place a cold wrap on it to help the swelling to go down. It was so early in the morning and then I couldn't fall asleep again just wondering where it went! (;´□`)…Thank you greyhavens… ^ ^ and the weather truly has been getting stranger each year it seems…..hmmm global warming perhaps? 😦 We tend to get lots of rain instead of snow this time of year so I shouldn't complain too much but still it was really awful for two days with just a short break in the weather in between….still gloomy but I love the cooler air. ^ ^

  11. Ouch MB! bugs,spiders,centipedes,to be bitten by any of those just suck! They always creep around at night! Spiders especially! There's a kill on site protocol in my house!..lol! Ok MB, you'll need 2 things to catch this centipede: 1)Clear drinking glass, 2) A sheet of paper .Once you see the centipede,cover it with the glass.Slip the paper under the glass and bug then quickly lift both and flip that bad centipede into the glass! TAHDAHHH!! And I quote the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin: "KRIKEES! DID YOU SEE THE LEGS ON THAT LITTLE BUGGAH?" or if your just lazy,a good old FLY SWATTER will do.=)This concludes my "TO KILL A BUG" class..lol=)

  12. I forgot to mention scorpions..and I really didn't know that we actually had scorpions here but when I was really little I was at the side of my uncle's koi pond and this little brownish thing ran up to my hand and stung it. I didn't know what it was at the time and later learned that it was a scorpion…I just remember it being the most painful thing that I had ever felt…..of course given, I was very little at the time. 😛 Thank you E!….I only hope that I'm brave enough to get near enough to it but it's sounds like you've caught one before? When you first mentioned a glass and a sheet of paper I was like….Eh? 😛 But it sounds like it will work perfectly so I will go to sleep with those two things in my room! ^ ^

  15. We once had this spider with really long fuzzy legs come out of nowhere and I was out of the room so quickly…..the term scaredy cat doesn't even do justice to how I reacted! 😛 Although I know it isn't true I just have this fear that all of them are poisonous plus they all look icky too.

  16. Ah that's so awful……it hurt didn't it! I just remember my father grabbing my hand and squeezing it and I had no idea why… 😦 I couldn't believe that something so little could hurt you so bad…..lol but I was so little too back then so I didn't know any better. 😛 I guess I shouldn't complain too much though as lots of other areas are having snow storms so we're just having pouring rain although it can be destructive too. I saw on the news that some families lost their entire homes due to flooding from overflowing streams nearby…:( and all of their Christmas presents were ruined too 😦 …this is supposed to be a happy time of year and yet there is so much sadness. Hopefully it clears up soon as they're saying it will.

  18. That's so lucky!!….if only I could handle the cold….I'm really sad aren't I? 😛 It's really strange but maybe lucky that I haven't seen the centipede since and I'm just wishing that he went back outside….lol I know that's dumb! 😛 Then again he could be crawling around my room while I'm asleep……I'm beginning to scare myself, so not good! >_< Ah I always wonder if I'm being audible whenever I imagine that I'm trying to speak or scream during a dream/nightmare……..no one's ever said anything but I really do wonder. The absolutely worst nightmare that I ever had was when I was really little and I imagined that I was falling and when I woke up my back was arched off the bed and I was sweating…my heart was beating rapidly and I was so freaked out like it was real (;´□`).Happily I think I can stop wearing the splint in about a week and most of the pain is nearly gone….if only I could stop hitting it on things though. 😛 I'm so clumsy sometimes! >_< Thank you maiZe. ^ ^
