What does a soggy carpet and hornets have in common?

They are both going on in my apartment. Yes, I am lucky. When it rains heavily, the carpet in my bedroom decides to get all wet. It can't be fixed until it stops raining for more than a couple days. On Sunday, I went into my spare bedroom to get something and lo and behold, there was a very large nasty "bug." My parents happened to stop over and I sent my dad into my spare bedroom to kill the "bug". When he came out, he informed me the "bug" was actually a hornet! Now, I am deathly afraid of bees. They scare the bejeezus out of me! So on Monday when I got home, I went into the spare bathroom and there was another one climbing on my toilet. Yep, I freaked and called my dad to come kill it. He got there, saved the day, and I called the main office to tell them. They sent some guy over with a can (read: USELESS) and he apparently sprayed the outside vents in hopes that this would solve it. Since then, I have left my spare bedroom and spare bathroom doors closed to try to find out which room they are coming in from. My dad is going to come over tomorrow to go into the forbidden rooms and see if there are any more hornets. Thank goodness for dads!!!! If there are more, I may freak. I can't handle having bees in my apartment. I can handle the ucky carpet since I know that will be fixed and it's really not in my way (it's on the side with the window and I really don't walk over there), but bees? I can't handle that!!! So please send happy thoughts.

I took a picture of the new haircut the other day and I think I'm pleased enough to post it. So if my posts are not amusing enough to check back, you can check back for the picture. I'll post before and after pictures so you understand the difference :)

Ohhh, I do NOT like hornets either, and I don't have anyone to call anymore! EEK!!!

I hate bees, mostly because I am allergic to them. They like to nest in my gutter for that reason, I think.

Looking forward to the hair cut photos!

Bumblebees are cute fuzzy ones. All the others suck.
