I was looking on some different web sites today to see if I could find a picture of my ground beetle's larvae and pupae. I consistently come across a particular larvae and what I think for sure is a pupae in my garden soil when I am digging around and I wanted to make sure that I am supposed to be protecting it and not squishing it.
I love bugs, spiders, creepy crawlies, snakes, worm, and even slugs, if I get to torture them (hey they pick on me first!). I have never minded slimy, gooey, alien looking things, until today.
I couldn't take it anymore, I got all grossed out looking at beetle, larvae and pupae images on the net. I kept thinking that they were gonna get me, turn into an alien and carry me a way. Or worse my skin would incubate out thousands of their kind and eventually they would burst out and take over the world.
A few minutes of watching some sci-fi show called Fringe on the TV and I am officially over the edge. I saw Alien in the seventies, and Dirt and I watched the X-files the first year it was out, I have to listen to nut job radio every night and at least two nights a week if not more they talk all about creepy stuff.
But I have finally caved, I have finally reached creepy crawly scary saturation. I am like the ground in the PNW, too saturated to percolate and be of any use.
Now I have to undergo bug nightmare detox, along with my running experiment on sleeping, not anesthetizing just sleeping, half my brain at a time to get more time, this could become a very difficult spring.
