I am so so grumpy right now.

And "grumpy" is putting it mildly.

I haven't been sleeping that great lately and last night I got none at all and I guess it's all my fault but it's not! It's the fault of A GIANT MOTH!

See, I had my windows thrown open all yesterday as I was cleaning and I guess I forgot to close them because when I went in for bed there was a (seriously) giant dark brown moth in my bedroom.

Now, if you know me, you know I can't/don't like to kill these things and usually just politely escort them out of my apartment, but this guy would have none of it.

I'm usually able to trick them with my "disappearing lights" trick out into the hallway but this moth refused to leave my bedroom. It refused to do anything!

I was pretty tired, so I got into bed and read for a while, having gotten Mr Giant Moth to settle in the overhead light. I figured if he didn't bother flapping his way out to my bedside lamp maybe he was dead or something.

Except my book was really really good and I kept on reading probably until 1 and then when I turned the light on HE STARTED FLYING AROUND!

So of course I had to turn the lights on and then he flapped at me and then I had to do the heebie jeebie dance but I couldn't get him or swat at him or anything and then he disappeared into the light again.

But I didn't want to deal with him anymore so I went into the other room to try and sleep but the wind kept blowing on my face which was nice at first and then cold and it was by this time two in the morning and I wasn't thinking straight and the clock was too loud and my fridge kept buzzing and by three am I gave up and went back to bed.

Where I kind of half lay there all night expecting to hear that effing giant moth trying to attack my brains or something.

So I'm totally in a foul mood this morning and I got no sleep and to make matters worse? I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN WHEN I GO TO BED TONIGHT BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW WHERE THE MOTH IS ANYMORE!

You should probably avoid me if you see me today.

It's not pretty.

My cat usually takes care of such things

Tho sometimes she's keeping me awake, 'cause she can't reach that flyguy under the ceiling and giving me a hard time...

But if it helps you: The moth is afraid of you, too...

JS and I had a discussion about the dance and all the frustrations of having to kill it lest it disappear - because that somehow is so much worse. I am sorry you've got the grumpies - DISLIKE.
