Attack of the ants!

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

Ugh. Chris' room got invaded today. In this heat the ants come indoors looking for moisture and cooler conditions. We've been in and moved a lot of the furniture, cleaned up the ant mess, and sprayed. There's still plenty of teen mess to deal with, and I don't hold out hope that Chris will even make a dent in it.

More unpleasantness at Wikipedia overnight. I hate it when people act like four year-olds and then have the temerity to characterize their screaming temper tantrums as "intelligent discourse." Yeesh.

I've decided to get a set of macro filters for my camera. I had a decent set for my old SLR, but they don't fit the Olympus. If I'm lucky I may have them in time for the weekend.

Speaking of photography, I'll be hosting Feline Friday this week while Steven takes a break. Next week Carly will host. (She's got some great cat pictures up right now.)

Tomorrow is the Round Robin challenge, so I need to get busy on that.

I got some strange spam in my inbox today - aimed at writers. It went to two of my e-mail addresses, so someone has been harvesting addresses. I forwarded it to the FTC. There appeared to be a removal mechanism, but yeesh.

There's a picture to post, and then I'm off to the store.
