We've got big old icky crickets in the basement. They're huge and horrible and make me cringe.

Today, Esme's brought me no less than five cricket limbs. I'm not sure what's happened to the remaining portion of the crickets. They may well be hobbling around, exchanging harrowing stories with one another: "Did you see that one-eyed cat?" "Dude! She took my leg!" "Mine, too. But that's not the worst of it. The entire time, she was," **dramatic pause**, "adorable."

If they look like giant armored Daddy Long Legs they're called Cave Crickets. I HATE those things. They cause me to have amazing bursts of strength so I can drop things like 50lbs of corn syrup on them.

Don't ask about the Corn syrup. This was 22 years ago & Dad was still at Nabisco.

That's them! They're horrid! I'm not sure how knowing they're called Cave Crickets makes them even worse, but it does.

Also, **memo to myself:** don't freak Kathy out when she's anywhere near a huge tub of corn syrup. Disaster WILL ensue.
