Creepy Crawlies

Not sure about you but I’m not a massive fan of creepy crawlies. And by creepy crawlies I don’t mean barracudas. Give me a rabid dog or a garden snake any day, but show me a spider or a wasp and I lose the plot. Needless to say when chilling in my bed last week I was not at all, not even in the slightest, pleased to meet, let’s call him…Phil.

There I was, reading my fave book at the moment Eat Pray Love, really getting into Liz’s travels through India, when I was greeted with this…

cockroachPhil – chilling…


I’m not even remotely playing silly exaggeration games when I tell you that our buddy Phil here decided it would be a great time to leap from underneath my DUVET and crawl across my face. Under the duvet, onto my face.

Please can we just take a moment together. Just a quick moment. To breathe. Lets hold hands.

    Wiki says the american cockroach can go 3 months without food, 1 without water. If you didnt get him he’s probably still alive.

    GND, I’m gonna be honest with you, that would probably have given me a mild stroke. Also, I’d like to hold your hand, but it’s been near Phil, and who knows where he’s been…

    I’ll have you all know that cockroaches are one of the most cleanest insect thingy’s, albeit siff to look at (or have on your face).

    FC – I pummelled it with my tennis racket & sprayed about half a litre of doom on it. Needless to say moved to the spare room after that, not too keen on the ‘high’ from doom.

    So you gave the cockroach a name…and then smashed it with your tennis racket AND sprayed doom on it? I hope Phil haunts you. I’m drinking to Phil tonight:(

    Has everyone else got as a possible link to this article: here without you – three doors down. So many things to read into that but I just can’t be bothered.
