SpiDerS!!! Argh!!!

OK, so now that it's gotten warmer (and when I say warmer - I mean HOT - in the 100's...) the animals are coming out of hiding or hibernation or wherever they were... and into our house!! First was the ants... they are everywhere!! We even have them crawling on us while we sleep! Yikes!! They don't bite though, so they aren't really a problem...

The problem is the SPIDERS!!! For some reason, they just LOVE our house!! Everyday I have to go around with my special hand-broom thing and kill spider's nests in our house ... Yesterday I got 21 spider's nests and today I got 19! WHoa!! Those are the small spiders... but our bathroom seems to attract these HUGE spiders! My first experience with the big spiders was right before Thanksgiving.... We had come back from a trip and well, after using the restroom... realized that there was a spider under the seat... luckily it was squashed.... but it made me think of that urban legand with the spider under the toilet seat.... anyway, check out the pic below....

So, now that it's gotten hot again... I've been seeing these big spiders in my house again!! Ahhh Nice! Anyway - Just thought I'd share my spider fun :)

On a lighter note :) . . . one of the dogs that lives on our street recently had 6 puppies, and they sleep in the garden across the street... they love to sleep in the pots b/c it's much cooler :) - they're cute... thought I'd share this pic :)

WHOA! 20 a day?! That's nuts! I've killed one (I say I because I'm in charge of the spiders, James has the roaches :) so far, and it was big and juicy. I hope you don't get those, but the toilet pic looks like you do. haha What a weird life we lead.

Florida Gators!

OK, so don't get me wrong by the title... I'm a super proud Florida State Grad and a big FSU fan... but this week here in Thailand, Tim Tebow is hanging out with us :) For those that don't know, he's the quarterback for University of Florida - he's a believer and a really awesome bold guy. So, since he's a Heisman winner (AND the only underclassman to ever win the Heisman) we thought we should get Aashini in a Heisman pose with him :) haha!

The Hijras are Coming!!!!

Today we had a fun / interesting cultural experience :) Here in our country, there are these people called Hijras हिजड़ा .... or Eunuchs. Most of these people are true eunuchs - they were born without male or female parts. They all live together in their own ghetto. If you have a child that is a Hijra, then they will come and demand you for your child and people here will give them their child. They all live together and in order to get money, they mostly do a glorified sort of begging. They are always dressed to the hilt. They come and visit you when you've had something big happen in your life - usually weddings and.... NEW BABIES. They come and dance and make a HUGE ruckus. They ususally do this until they are given a large amount of money. Some of them can be quite crazy and violent, but mostly they will just annoy you to death, barge into your home (or wedding) and dance and sing around until you give them money (usually around $100-200 is their demand).
