Actually, I've cheated and substituted a centipede, but that's what I had to work with this week. 😉 Featured Image: A small, glossy, dark reddish-brown centipede exploring the water glass I trapped it in. I had rescued it from the cats, and released it outdoors after taking the photo.
My partner found this gorgeous millipede pretending to be dead in our laundry room, and brought it to me. 🙂 I think it's probably Sigmoria latior, known as the red-sided or flat-backed millipede. I find them under decaying leaves when I'm gardening pretty often; it can be startling when it's an individual that's bright yellow... Continue Reading →
I know I have posted pics of several of these little guys before, but they are the most frequent visitors I find in the house - at least downstairs, anyway - and even though they aren't really flashy looking, I just think they are really cool.

That's a spinner ring from Stimtastic in the picture, by the way.2 1As with the dogs, this is... Continue Reading →
This one was 'speeding' (for a millipede) down my downstairs hallway just now. Luckily I found it before one of the resident felines or eater-of-things spotted it.
I've been too wiped out to write, the past few days, but the tachycardia is somewhat better. When I send back the heart monitor, I'll have to include a note to ignore all of the times I accidentally clicked the button on the stupid thing while trying to scratch at the maddeningly itchy tape on...
