Gigantic Housefly

There is a ginormous housefly in my apartment. I'm not entirely sure how he got in, but he's been here for several days and has evaded my attempts to either squish him, or shoo him out the door.

Maybe I should just name him Skippy.

He seems to be learning, we had a discussion about my laptop screen and how, if you land on it, I am going to do my best to smush you, and he hasn't landed on it again. Same with the tv.

He has, however, developed the habit of attempting to dive bomb behind my glasses and into my eyeballs, or buzzing my ears.

This fly, no joke, is probably the size of a horse fly. When it comes diving towards your face it looks as big as a buzzard, and it sounds a small prop-plane going by your ear.

I think Skippy just likes to see me jump.


I have books!

I have $308.54 worth of books. Thank goodness for financial aid.

And two of them are going to be excellent references even after I graduate, so bonus there.

I also got my student ID fixed, since they didn't have a line halfway down the hall for the registration process, I just popped in, explained to them what the problem was, and they fixed it right up for me.

They seemed surprised that I wasn't more upset about it, and that I hadn't run right back in and demanded that they fix it yesterday. I got grateful smiles all around when I thanked them and told everyone to have a nice day on my way out.

Makes me wonder what kind of spoiled brats they've been dealing with. I guess I'll find out tomorrow.
