    This bug has been flying around all night... It's like a little moth... a tiny thing... too big to be a Gnat... but too small to be a Moth... I don't know... Whatever... When I took over the rocking chair, abandoning the computer chair, I turned off the light in here... That's when the moth-like creature became attracted to my moniter. It landed right in the middle of the screen and decided to fall asleep or something... Every so often I would blow on it and watch it fly around in the light for a minute before landing on the screen to sleep again. Reproduce, sleep, I don't know what it was doing...

    So I took my keyring Albertson's card and smashed it...... Now it lies dead, and partially squished on the lip of my moniter where the screen ends and the plastic begins.

    I need to get some sleep, I'm way tired... So tired, in fact, that I don't want to get out of this rocking chair... I would be content with sleeping here, listening to music... but as long as there is a computer in front of me, I won't be sleeping... I'll be at CK5... :blush:

    You know, I was kind of attached to that bug. In the few short hours he spent with me, we got to know each other pretty well. Cornelius was a mighty fine man. Highly educated, but a little down on his luck. He was just looking for an escape from his nagging wife and five screaming children. He told them all he was going on a business trip. I felt for him. I had compassion. Until I killed him.

    If I would kill someone I just met, who's to say I won't hit my cat with a keyring size Albertson's card... Sure it won't kill him, but it's the motivation behind the action that causes such great distress...

    I wouldn't do that to my cat... I'm not an animal abuser... It's not illegal or immoral to kill a tiny moth-like creature. He was begging to die.

    So long, and Klo Wurst (HOORAY for German!) to all of you.
