And the unanimous decision is that I, in fact, DO have bats in my belfry

19 Dec

This morning I had an early christmas present hanging from my front door.

The pictures are not great, and I do apologize, but I was half asleep, ridiculously unsteady and rather apprehensive about the whole deal so the close up was taken by zooming in as far as possible in the attempt to maintain a lot of distance between me and it. But, after a few minutes and some preparatory pillow-case net making, I had the little guy in my P.C.N. and got him outside back into the cold faster than you could say “Oh my god! It’s going to get stuck in my hair!”

The brilliance to photograph the event sadly, does not belong to me. No, it was my mother, whom I was on the phone with at 5:30 this morning discussing battle tactics, that actually said:

“Well, you know, you should really take a picture of it! Before you try to catch it, run and get your camera!”

So this one goes out to my mommas. Don’t worry, I already emailed her copies. You think I let her read this?! HA!


Holy crap BATman!!

    Aw! He’s so cute!

    I guess it’s easy for me to sit here and say he’s cute. I probably would have lost my shit if he had been in my house.

    A bat hanging from the front door? It would spook me out for sure — if this happens to me.

    Walter: He was cute, until he started shreiking once I got the Pillow Case Net over top of him…then it was fucking INSANE!!

    Neoauteur: Weird shit like this usually only happens to me it seems. But at the very least, everyone now thinks I’m a baller *wink* Heh heh.

    OMG! He looks so cute and peaceful! It’s a shame you had to wake him into shreiking in order to get him out of your house that early in the morning! He was probably all “WTF?!” 🙂

    Atherton: I wish I could have recorded that shreiking sound…I was so not expecting such a horrific sound to come out of a little 3 inch fluffy hanging THING! He was probably REALLY all “WTF” once I threw his ass back outside in the cold!!
