Bugs, Banners and Blog links


I think I may have found a new form of life, and it is in my kitchen. It has visited twice now; both times after rain. It shows up in the evening and is always gone by morning. I was able to snap a few photos but they look more like grainy spy satellite images or video footage of a cigar shaped UFO. My camera is not very good and this creature is relatively small. Anyone out there know what it is?

It looks like a small leaf or bark from a tree. At first glance that is what I thought it was; something that I had tracked in from the wet sidewalk.

I noticed some movement and thought the air from the vent was blowing on it. A closer inspection revealed that it was self-propelled. It was dragging itself, very slowly, by some kind of suction device, or more likely, a hook.

profile creature small

This hook was retractable, like a turtle's head, and went in quickly when I moved in front of it. The movement was reminiscent of an inchworm. It would throw the soft forward portion of its body forward, then drag the much larger portion behind it. The velocity of the creature was very slow. I imagine the only thing it could ever catch would be a snail, so it is likely a herbivore or scavenger that eats dead flesh.

Buying ones and zeros

Any college students or apartment dwellers out there who use a Web laundry system? If so I have a WEB laundry card that has 10+ bucks on it. I'll mail it to you if you would like and then you can send me five bucks or something. I just hate the thought of throwing money away. I have so much crap I need to get rid of. Around 100 christian music CDs which now have no appeal to me, old computer parts, et cetera. Guess I should hit up e-bay.

I have a much more serious article planned that has to deal with something I have been seeing in churches lately. Now that I know christianity is false it really bothers me how many people have been sucked into it and how much influence it has on society. The sheep are getting the wool pulled over their eyes and it is breaking my heart. I'm afraid I am becoming a missionary again; this time for rationalism instead of superstition.

It could be a snail without it's shell??? If you check exterminator web sites, they sometimes have pictures of common critters. That's how I found out that I have silverfish in my attic. So sorry about your extraterrestrial creature>> LOL

I look forward to your article on what you have been seeing in
churches lately. I don't know if that is figuratively speaking, or you
still actually attend a church and are speaking from current experience. Whichever case, I look forward to seeing what you have to write. A missionary for rationalism is an interesting thought as well.

Until then....

Very weird pictures. The first one is proof of UFOs. "Unidentified Fugly Objects."

Drags itself by a hook? Maybe it's a snail doing a production of "I Know What You Did Last Summer."

Probably it's a slug, but...suction device and hook, really? Maybe it's a....(gulp)...leech.

(Oh, and I added your wonderful blog to my list of links. It was overdue, too.)

You have to tell us if you figure out what it is. I'm dying to know.

Dude, that thing is gross. You should talk to Ariana since she found a strange ugly evil bug last week. Might be the same thing.

Those pics look suspiciously just like UFO pics...grainy, out of focus...hmmm...I say it's just a piece of rice that got flung from the stovetop...heh

On close inspection of your photos, I've come to the conclusion that it's either:

A slug - although it looks like one, its "hook" may signify he's goin' fishin'.
A leech - They must move around somehow. Try attaching it to a small child and see which one dessicates first.
A hoax - not a new species at all.
or (and I think we have a winner...)
A blur.

Well, my evil bug has legs and spiky things on it's back. I'm *supposed* to get a digital camera soon and can post much better pictures of it, as the evil dead bug remains in das grey poupon jar. Have you looked online for a field guide? I ran out of patience trying to find one that I wouldn't have to pay for, but you may have better luck than I did.

Hey you.

Don't let the delusions of Christians bother you. You are now on the path of enlightenment, and you also know what it was like to hide in your faith (as I also know, being an ex-Christian). Try not to judge the poor buggers - trust me, they're happy with their heads in the sand, and the decision to break free can only come from within.

Think about yourself, not "them". There's a whole world of knowledge out there, waiting for you to explore it. Go for it! They'll catch up in their own time.


PS if you want instructions for evil paper horns, let me know and I'll post them on my blog. :)

Hi Sarah! I noticed you linked to my friend Brian's site, and I thought I'd check your blog out. Pretty interesting, do you mind if I link you? Also btw...of your 100 christian cds do you have any Styper?
December 13, 2004   03:31 AM PST
Thanks for linking me, I know what I see in churches lately......more blind, bigoted stupidity than ever before. I mean for Christ sake what has gotten into these people, it sure isn't the a "love thy neighbor" mentality. OK enough christian bashing, unfortunately as with bugs/pest they multiply and infest (damn did it again) . Sarah I think what you have is an inhabited cigar butt, occupied by a snail that lost its shell.

Since you are in CA and OC at that it maybe some new lifeform that has adapte to breathe in unbreathable air or a lost sea cucumber.
December 13, 2004   05:10 PM PST
Yay! A new entry at last...

Anyway, thank you for linking me. I appreciate it.

Oh and I have been reading some good books lately. There's a trilogy by James Redfield. The first one is called Celestine Prophecy and the second one is The Tenth Insight. It has some pretty interesting ideas. I recomment to you all. I just can't seem to remember what the third book was titled.

Oh well.

Until next time!

Please let me know if you find out what that freak of nature in your kitchen was. Or did it already take over your body, like a parasitic StarGate SG-1 Ga'ould?

If you're still Sarah, let me know.
December 14, 2004   05:18 AM PST
Sarah... you must tell me what is it when you find out... and if not..try and get a better pix! Maybe someone who knows will tell you when the pix is clearer!

Sarah, your starting to worry us. You haven't posted in almost a couple of weeks now... Has that thing grown and mutated and attacked you? If your being slowly digested...let us know

Came over from a friend's site. Hope you don't mind.

I happen to be one of the Bible Believers. Not sorry!!!

God is real, and so is Jesus. I pray you never find out that Hell is, too.

Merry Christmas!!!
December 19, 2004   06:57 PM PST
So, you've talked to them face to face and went to hell on summer vacation? Is that how you know it's all real?
December 20, 2004   05:54 AM PST
Ok, I admit I was raised to believe in God, but I cant help but...

Agree with you. Im just not religious. Something about the bible and its followers insults my rational subconsciouis, and frankly, I dont for the life of me.. understand how each religion is supposed to be the right one, when there are so many...



The photos.. Im sorry.. I know this is a little graphic.. but forgive me for saying...

It looks like you took photos of a turd floating in a pool.

That's a very unusual creature you have there. It reminds me of a tiny slug, but doesn't look quite right. I hope you get full credit for the discovery!!!

Cheers :)

Yooo-hooo? (echo, echo, echo)

Where did you go?

Post something...anything. So we know you are okay!

You got any DC Talk or Jars of Clay? Or perhaps (gasp!) P.O.D?
