Hmmm - always makes one wonder what the Armadillo's are up to.

The north/south line of Armidillo road kill affected global warming or something - been a long time since I talked to a 'true Texan' about this infallible scientific indicator.

heh heh heh heh

"I must offer to you a confession,
I like movies that give me a fright.
If the subject is horror, I got to see more or
I won't be contented all night.
You may call it my ghoulish obsession,
It's a subject on which I get chatty.
But the worst one it seems, haunting all of my dreams
Was the cockroach that ate Cincinnati!"

Rose and the Arrangement

Ok I've been attacked by these little a-holes

I have 5 or 6 of these bites on me, and they have swollen up to the size of baseballs.

I'm sitting at my desk trying to work in an antihistamine coma

Here's some good news: After several dozen bites over a period of a few weeks, you will develop an immunity and they will only swell to the size of golf balls, then moth balls, then fruit fly balls. But they'll still itch like mad.
