we feel lucky when we wake up

gypsy moths, bugs & sunglasses

1. Have you ever had an invasion of Gypsy Moths where you live? What did you do? What would you do if it happened where you live?

Not right where I live but I went to a park 40 miles south of here for a picnic yesterday and when I got there they were everywhere. It was fucking disgusting. I was with my father and I refused to get out of the car because I'm terrified afraid of moths, we ended up having to eat in the car with all of the windows closed. My dad was telling me about how they had them here once and the caterpillars(larva?) where so bad that the ground was slippery in spots and it always sounded like it was raining in the forest for some reason. He told me that he read in the paper that it's likely they'll be in our area next year. I'm really worried about it which is stupid because I can't do anything about it, but if they are I'll be spending the summer with family in Yonkers or Scarsdale assuming they don't have them there.

2. When you find a bug in your house do you catch them and free them outside, or kill them, or do something else?
If it's daytime and they aren't a scary bug I try to catch them in a cup or something and I take them outside and put them in the grass, if it's nighttime or if they're scary I usually vacuum them up.

3. Do you wear sunglasses?
No, I'm one of those people who just looks strange wearing them. I keep a pair i my car though just in case I need them.
