Formicidae Genocide

I beat the ants today...that is right they learned their lesson and will never ever enter my room again (hopefully). The ingenius plan (no really it was quite excellent) went a little like this...First I took the wrappers off a whole bunch of Vitamin C candies which have somewhat melted in the heat, this provided an excellent sugary substances to attract the ants. Then I put the wrappers in the bottom of my empty garbage pail and left for class. When I returned the pail was swarming with ants (the entire bottom was black with more on their way)...that little bit of greediness got them (and they say Vitamin C is good for your health). I poured a good 2 inches of bleach into the pail and watched all the little carcasses drift dreamingly to the surface...the best part is the retarded creatures kept on coming in (in that horrendous line of theirs) oblivious to the pool of pain that awaited them. Incredibly satisfying experience...truly enjoyable! The ants may have thought they could beat me, but in the end they were vanquished, unfortunately I am sure that their are bizillions of more hiding in the crack under my bed, so this may have to become a weekly ritual. For all those who are sending mail (no this isn't pressure to send a letter, it is simply information) you MUST SEND IT AIR MAIL. Failure to stamp it as air-mail means that it will not arrive in Fiji for over a month (no I'm not exagerating surface mail takes millinias to get here). Air mail only takes 10 working days so do not forget...

Air mail, eh? NOW you tell me. I just told the lady at the post office I needed to send something to Fiji...

Sierra you have to tell me stuff like "send it air mail" before I do things. You are quite aware that I wouldn't be able to think of that myself.

I'm glad that you're not spraying Raid all over your room to kill the ants. Expect the letter I wrote you in a month, it's probably in Mongolia right now.

Definitely ingenious solution to the ants Sierra. Okay, what's your address again? I acccientally deleted that email with it...That skanker sis of mine Stef and I are in Amsterdam in less than 2 weeks, and I may just send you a postcard...But only if I get one from Fiji!!
