Short update, but I haven't written in a while and I feel like providing a little news.

Over the last couple of days I've done a little bit of pool-side relaxing and the sunshine, warm breeze, and cool (verging on cold) water is exactly what I need right now, before school starts (in just two days!) and I have more to worry about than the state of my tan.

Giving in

Now that I have my own kitchen I have been completely, utterly overwhelmed by the urge to cook. It's hot outside and I have a million things to do, but someone put a roast in my hands and I'll give you a slow-cooked, 5 hour long ordeal that has the whole apartment smelling delicious.

All-out. It has been declared.

I tried to be nice, spiders. I tried to be understanding and compassionate. Plus there was that whole "Charlotte's Web was my favorite book when I was a kid and all these spiders must be just like that spider who is both a good writer and a good friend" thing. No more. No more, I say. You have overrun my apartment. You are even in my car — I saw you, spider crawling up my arm!! There is not a square inch that your spiny legs have not touched. If I see another fuzzy egg sac, I may just lose it.

So be forewarned, spiders. Here is your chance to get the heckles out of my apartment. Because last year, when I let you quietly go about your lives spinning your webs, is over. This year, it will be a spider slaughter. Run for your lives, because I will show you no mercy.

Everyone else

Is awesome too. Happy, L?
