Do June bugs also go by "cicadas"? I haven't seen one in years but remember them being the bane of my existence when I was a kid. I've also been fortunate enough to not encounter any scorpions.
I assume it was in the washing machine because it was hiding in the pile of clothes I had just put in there to wash.
I had a scorpion on my hand once, but it didn't sting me. It was dark in a room and I was sitting on a floor at my friend's place in Mesa. I moved my hand and felt something wrapped around my finger. I picked it up to see what it was but it was too dark to see. I must have moved it back and forth like 4-5 times. It was yellowish, so I thought maybe it was one of those wirey things you close off bread with (no idea why I thought this). I put my hand down, and it started crawling up my arm. I knew it wasn't a sandwich wire thing and flung it off. Sure enough, it was a young scorpion. I didn't sleep well for days.
If you have scorpion problems, I am not sure what the name of the stuff is, but they have glue traps that attract scorpions to them and then they get stuck and die. They work excellently.
I've never seen a scorpion in my house or yard or anywhere (except the zoo) either. (Lived in Phoenix, NW Phoenix, East Mesa)
I just learned that Howe Gelb and Victoria Williams are playing a show in Prescott in a couple weeks. Prescott. how weird is that?
and.. AND.. did you see that BOC is coming to Phoenix?

Viva la cowbell!
yes that was my intent. ha ha.
but seriously which event do you think is more likely?
(a) a cutting edge, reclusive, iconoclastic pair of electronic innovators plays a rare US show in Phoenix, Arizona.
(b) an old, overweight, out of date midwestern heavy metal band plays to a group of old, overweight, and very out of date ex-hippies at an indian casino in Phoenix, Arizona.
I know, I choose b.
b, all the way. It should be billed as the "Now we DO fear the Reaper" tour...
I like that song.
I was about to call bullshit on Tom until he revealed which BOC it was.
Also, I just bit my tongue hard enough to bleed. I hate myself. I should not chew gum.
Garnett might come to the Suns.
Its a three way trade with the Celtics and Timber Wolves.
Suns get Garnett
Celtics get Shawn Marion
Timber Wolves get 5th overall pick and other players (unknown at this time)
I don't care about losing Marion because of his disappearing acts in at least one series in the playoffs.
