  • Yeah, iguanas are bad here depending on where you live. I live on a lake and they love water, so there you go. I would love to shot them, but we have all these silly laws against shooting guns around here, and all the guns I own make very loud bangs.

    • Guns do make loud noises. Maybe rig up a trap for them? My neighbor rigs cat traps up all the time because we get cat infestations in our 'hood.

      • Well now I know why I didn't feel up to par in my workout yesterday, I'm sick. Son of a bitch!. Last night I started feeling the gland in my neck getting swollen and my body aches like I was beaten with a tire iron. To top it all off, I'm at work tonight. Thank god it's only an 8 hour shift, and I'm off at 3am. At least I got to do some running and jumping through hedges and 5 bad guys are sitting in the pokey. But now the adrenaline has worn off and I feel like shit again.

        Was up at about 7:30am. Brreakfast was scrambled eggs with ground sausage, diced onions, and diced tomotoes, with some Kerry Gold butter thrown in for good measure. The sausage was conventional, but fuck it, nobody's perfect. It tasted awsome. The last of my "good" eggs. Tommorow it is back to the omega 3 eggs. Oh, and how could I forget, 4 stupidly large cups of coffee with heavy cream.

        Went back to Home Depot and got some metal to put around the bottom of the garden fence. I REALLY hope it works. I also got a couple of new cucumber plants(to replace the eaten ones) and some leeks to plant. I will take care of that tommorow, I was to worn out(sick abnd all) so I went and laid down for a little while.

        Slept for an hour or two, but not comfortably, ate ate the remaining pot roast and carrotts for dinner.

        And in parenting news, I suck. I was at the grocery store when my daughter's school calls to remind me that it was an early release day and my little girl was sitting in the office waiting for me to pick her up. I felt like the biggest asshole in the history of assholes. My daughter didn't seem to mind, but I felt horrible. So to make it up to her she talked me into a Happy Meal and chocolate chip cookies. I know, it's not real food, but she likes them and I don't let her get them often.

        Well, I am feeling shittier by the minute. May have to go find some tylenol or motrin.

        • Get well man. No need to feel horrible. It's not like you left her at home while you and the whole family took a trip to Europe, though i guess you did deny her the chance to outwit a few burglars and get rich off sequels.

          Nicely done on snagging those 5 bad guys. 5 guys while you are sick? That is bad ass.

          Now get well and kick some iguana butt.

            Haha, thanks. I did have some help tonight. Team effort and all. Yeah, my kid was cool with it, I just freaked out. It would have been nice to say my daughter hit Joe Pesci in the face with an iron, though.

            Just took two **Expired as of 11/2010** extra strength immitation tylenol, so I should be fine.

                    Ha! Yeah, not exactly an issue up here in Canadee!

                    Feel better, Dave! Also, I echo what canio6 said re: parenting. Don't beat yourself up about it, especially seeing as how you already feel like you've been pummeled by a tire iron. ;.)

                    • Welp, feel like crap today. Thermometer says a fever of 101.5 and I am freezing even though it is 85 degrees out. Just popped some extra strength immitation tylenol and waiting for it to kick in. I got home last night at around 3:30am and was in bed by 4. Slept as best I could untill about 1:45. No appetite right now which is not my norm(what? No bacon and eggs? Isn't that a sign the end is near?)

                      I've decided to call out sick from work. I know it's weird, but I actually feel guilty doing no matter how sick I am. Damn my parent and the work ethic they instilled in me!

                      I will say this. In the past something like this would have totaly knocked me on my ass for days at a time. I feel shitty, but I can still function and handle business around the house. I credit PB for that. I just don't feel like chasing bad guys around the county for 12 hours.

                      • Patrick and MCW,

                        Yeah I don't see iguanas being a problem up your way. What I wouldn't give for just 2-3 days of you winter to kill them off. But I'm sure you guys have your ferel species up there that cause problems. The ones we have here turn into monsters. Boas and pythons are thriving in the everglades. They get big enough that sometimes the gator wins and sometimes they win. There is actually a fear that something the size of a burmese python will breed with something as aggressive as an african rock python and make some kind of super snake.

                        • We get rattlers, scorpions, and coyotes. I think I'll keep my nasty critters over yours. At least they'll try to avoid you before attacking...
                          Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                            We have those too, but they belong here and don't bother me. Its just the damn foreign invaders that piss me off.

                            • Ohhhh... invaders...
                              Cats, dogs, and geckos, as well as black fireants. I forgot where they were brought in from (Australia?) but they could've kept them. That and Africanized bees. Those could've stayed where they were too.

                              • Appetite is back, that's good. Sliced up some bacon, diced onions, and tomatoes, and mixed it into some scrambled eggs. It hit the spot. Called the boss and let them know I won't be in. He's cool with it, I'm not one of the chronic sick leave abusers. I'm sure I will get the ussual response from my co-workers about being out of tampons or something.
