3:00 snapshot, #118.

family portrait


Afternoon nap. Alexis was nice enough to bring me my watch and camera at 2:58, so that I could take this picture.

On this day in 365 urban species: House Centipede. When I started "The Urban Pantheist" as a print zine, its logo included a pigeon as a sort of mascot species. I like to think of the house centipede as a second mascot species; we even considered making one inch buttons emblazoned with house centipede's image. Sure, a cockroach would be the obvious choice, but the house centipede is a little more unusual and very memorable, if not exactly charismatic. I have a house centipede icon, and every time I use it on a community post I have a conversation with a new person. Most recently I had to help a fairly large centipede out of the tub as I was showering.

I considered getting a scolopendra tattoo, but fortunately (as far as my wife is concerned) I never did.

I started reading you because of house centipedes! I think there was a discussion in kore's journal and you were using that icon and I was intrigued.

I didn't know centipedes ate insects.

The centipede photo made me make this howly "ewwwww!" noise that Charles says startled two cats in the next room over.

I'm still glad I don't live in the building that was infested with them anymore, though. Little ^*)%^#s blended in with the carpet.
