"The fast-flying bats have little warning of the centipede's presence, and within moments one is snatched from the air in mid-flight. The S. gigantea's toxic venom works quickly as the bat hopelessly attempts to squirm from the grasp of many legs, only to succumb to the poison seconds later. There, dangling from the cave ceiling, the centipede eats every scrap of flesh from its prey over the period of about an hour. It then pulls itself back up to the ceiling and climbs down the wall to return to the dark, damp corner of the cave from whence it came."
I can't help by read that in a Vincent Price or James Earl Jones voice. It gives me that sort of pan-zoom tunnel vision and rapid heartbeat you get right at that most revealing moment of utter horror at the center of a Edgar Allen Poe or Lovecraftian story.
Now I'm especially glad to be leaving the state for Thanksgiving. I never saw this particularily lovely flavour of hundred legged spawn of satan until I moved to Minnesota. Now they have blood orgies in my apartment on a semi-regular basis.
On an unrelated happy sunshine and unicorns note... I had delicious Indian food on Eat Street with Dani last night. There was this mysterious bright green paste which was quite good even if I have no idea what the hell it was. Then after that all of you missed the most amazing telling of my story about being knocked out by a horse, rendered in Legos.
Hmm. HP Lovecraft makes me feel all cozy and sleepy.
Zach, where are you? You're not online. I'm scared.
Also, you should buy a Wii. I don't have a TV, so I can't get one. But you could. And then I could hang out.
Hey, sith, I have a wii! You could hang out with mii!
I want to hang out with someone who has a wii!
I want a wii... maybe.
I was wrong about those centipedes only being in MN.
I think it followed you.
Happy belated birfday, sith!
damn, j mullan, you really are a whore.
I made a joke about the token black guy at a party, and he was one of the housemates. I rule. His girlfriend suggested that we call him "token" for the rest of the party. I demurred.
Everyone should (and will) want a wii. I want a second one so I can play it at work.
Christy, I just want hot wii action, that doesn't make me a goddamn whore.
Blowing men in the park for money does, though. Those goddamn men should buy me stuff. Zach.
I fucking hate centipedes so goddamn much.
But I love my wii!
You have a Wii too? Everybody's got nice stuff but me (I want a car I want a jet-ski) </deadmilkmen>
HOLY SHIT! Toejam and Earl came out on the Wii today! Now I really need one.
