I hate the same things everyone else hates

Like smacking a mosquito and getting blood all over my hand. Probably my own blood, too.

Ah, Texas in July! Gotta love it.

Do we live in a tropical rain forest or what? Is it going to rain AGAIN today?

I'm generally not bothered by mosquitoes since I never go outside, but one came in yesterday that was the size of a condor. OK, maybe not a condor, but I thought it was a small wasp or something. When I killed it and saw that it was a mosquito I was really freaked out.

Jennifer,

If you saw the size of some of the welts these beasts leave, you would be appalled. I've been scratching for months. I long for winter.

To borrow a phrase from my native Cincinnati: It's not the heat, it's the humidity.

The most fun is when one lands on your bicep and you grab your hand and flex as hard as you can.

The little beastie's proboscis gets stuck and you pump him full of blood until he explodes... *POP!*

You wanted a drink? There you go!

Or like biting into a guava or some other yummy fruit and finding.. ugh.. How does that joke go --

"What's worse than finding a worm in your apple?

Finding half the worm."

If you rub a pretty thick paste of Ivory (or any other lye-based) Soap onto a fresh bite it takes the itch out and the welt goes down after 2 days instead of a week. When I first heard that, I thought it was crazy, but it totally works.
