Tonight I went to friend's house for dinner and we ended up chasing insects with a vacuum cleaner. A bloom of carpenter ants had taken over the house. Life in the country, I swear. They ran up my arms and I couldn't get them out of my hair. While I was chasing the bugs with a shop vac a gecko fell off the ceiling and bounced off my head. Actually, it was the perfect Halloween night complete with primal squealing. Forget ghosts, giant winged ants in Biblical numbers and falling lizards are way more creepy.
