Anyone who was here last year for Amityville Horror Pt. 1 should know that the sequel is out this summer.
Yes, our flies are back. Except this time they are convening in the attic where our computer is. They’ve decided the living room bay window was too dangerous due to massive casualties last year and have moved to higher ground. Right now as I type I count no less than twenty.
Yes, I said twenty.
Disgusting, isn’t it? I’ve decided that the only method that will work is to bug-bomb the house. It’s quite possible this weekend that we’ll be begging Ace to take us in for a night, board the pets in the kennel at our vet’s and lock up the house tight so that the bugbombs can do their thing. Until then, Denis is doing battle tonight with a folded up newspaper (although I may go out and buy him a flyswatter) and some tacky (literally and figuratively) flypaper.
Our cats are ridiculous. Three of them are up here in the attic with me right now and are just lounging comfortably in the sun. No flies on them.
update at 7:49 p.m.: Denis managed to get 24 KIAs. And as of an hour ago, our attic is a fly-free zone.
