After making up with the cricket mafia and all; I thought maybe you'd seen the error of your ways ...er something.I'm here if you need to find the light, the way out of darkness, and a clear path from the evils of bugs. Speak to me of your ills and I will offer my sage advice as I am free of crickets today.

What's spirital guidance?


(Thou canst give what thou canst spell...)It's the stairway out for your guilt of killing bugs and other foul creatures that haunt you.

I am my Father's Son...so I need no guidance. I am the son and the heir of everything in particular. The Earth. The Sun. The Moon. The Planets. The Creatures both small and large. It's all mine, my boy. But if you wanna swap recipes or something, I'm game.Are you fair game? Gamey? Game for another round of darts? Up for a game of chance? Hmmm...just what kind of game are you?

Tender chunks of venison are marinated twice, and wrapped in thick bacon before being grilled until crispy on the outside. A venison version of Filet Mignon. This is a heavenly use of the best part of a deer. For the BBQ sauce, I prefer hickory flavored.

A zesty venison jerky that you can make at home in your oven. If you have a food dehydrator, you can dry the jerky in it by following the manufacturer's instructions. You can also reuse the marinade for additional batches.

Wow, Spooky. That was positively poetic.

Well, here's the thing. We used to share a 1920's home with several generations of granddaddy roaches. The exotic three-inch variety. Soon after moving in, I was put on bedrest with Big Baby #1. It was predictably boring until the day one of those big granddaddies fell from the ceiling above my bed right down into my nightie. (This did not go over well with an 8-month pregnant lady whose biggest excitement was the weekly trip to the ob-gyn.) From that day on, the granddaddies and I had an agreement...as long as I never had to see them during the day, they were welcome to all the crumbs my babies threw on the floor that the dog didn't get first. And I promised never to remove the beautiful decorative ivy that was their favorite breeding ground. After all, it was so charming.

For twelve years we shared this arrangement. But one day--and this is the hard part to talk about, Spooky--(ack, I'm consumed with guilt)--one day, in broad daylight, WHILE THEY SLEPT BLISSFULLY UNAWARE, we did the unforgiveable. We moved.

It gets worse. We sold the house to a couple who immediately chopped down all the charming ivy covering the house. They then sold the house to a contractor, WHO REMOVED ALL THE WALLS, EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR, DOWN TO THE STUDS. The granddaddies were evicted without warning.

I have never forgiven myself for being so evasive, and, well, I just want to say I am so grateful for this thread and the opportunity to purge myself of roach abandonment.

Thank you.

I know your anguish. I too had on occasion departed from my temporary residence and left behind companions who shared my baseboards and cupboards. I was lucky though and found my next home was similarly infested with various mites, crawdads, and an assortment of night crawlers.

I'm glad you were able to move on and put this guilt behind you. The healing process takes times, so give yourself another week or two before you decide to fumigate this time.

See, I'm the Cricket Prophet. I'm an actual conduit to the Sacred Crickets. I've been too busy opening a dialogue to free Spooky from his curse, so I haven't had the time to write our sacred texts yet. Maybe I'll post them in SYW when the gods chirp that the time is right. Or something.

Don't Macintosh's attract bugs? (Sorry, Terri has me in wierd question mode since Sex question Tuesday)No, that's a myth. The bad news is that Macintosh was really good at attracting Republicans. But the good news is that most are already sterile so you don't need biological agents to get rid of them.

That's right. Republicans are under the list of bugs that the Sacred Cursing Crickets want us to squash. In light of this recent communication, I will have to revise a decree from the Cricket Gods that I left in the undead thread just now:

Beware squashed gophers Republicans bearing gifts.
