that was also horrifying

Today at CKS while at the awesome Dali exhibition I saw this old dude with really really long nose hairs. Coming out of his nose. He was just as tall as I, so I got an eyeful. Of nostril hair. White and gray nostril hair.  Nasty.

Oh, and Chi found an old spice bottle of parsley with bugs in it. Little beetle looking bugs crawling around and we almost ate some. I sprayed Raid inside for like 15 secs. It was satisfying but sickening at the same time.
I don't even want to draw a picture of an old dude with nose hair.

This has not been a great weekend. At least not for great wonderful things, but I suppose it's been good for horrible things. What a horrible weekend.

that was horrifying

one of the worst things I've seen today was an octopus, a little one, being fried on a grill. Did you know their tentacles curl up  and  catch onto the bars. And their heads bubble as the juice inside boils out. And then they curl up like flowers. Like space alien flowers. It was not cool.

it really works kinda

i really love Burt's bees herbal insect repellent. the biggest deterrent i have from spending hours at the park reading are the myriad of insect life that bite me. anything from horse fly's to these little tiny black dots that bite and look like grains of black pepper. Those suckers hurt! That's why I like Burt's Bee's. Almost.
the great thing is that its oily, like made from four different kinds of oil. So I end up looking like I'm slathering on tanning oil and get a nice shade darker if stay out there long enough.

I almost like its insect repelling powers except for that it only lasts for five mins and about 4 cm. I lie there watching five or ten flying blood sucking insects from hell ready to pounce as soon as the sting of rosemary and lemongrass oil dissipates.  I love summer.

I'm coming back home! So I have years of stuff to pack and ship home. But what to take? This is me trying to decide what to pack...

this what ends up happening all the time I try and solve this problem:

Emptying old drawers that I had forgotten were full, finding lost art supplies and sketch books! Or this happens:

What should go home? clothes that I might fit into later if I can't afford to feed myself when I get back? Bottles of lotion that smell kinda funky now? old shoes? art supplies? hair ties? old makeup? books? birthday cards, pay stubs, tax papers, sheets, towels, pillow cases, costco sized bottles of meds? I don't know.

why speedos? why?

I don't understand why Taiwanese dudes are all about the speedo? If you see one of those around back home you automatically think, "huh, that dude must be European. Or getting paid to wear that. Or lost a bet."

Because no self respecting man walks around in public in the closest thing to women's panties he could possibly wear.

I've seen more than I ever wanted to of old dudes and 12 year olds with puberty problems at the swimming pool. These issues could all be avoided with swimming trunks or board shorts or even grass hula skirts.
