bugs..all all kind

So we're having this Spring/Summer weather right. What this means is that the bugs are out in full force? This brought forth a memory.
See I was home and this imp happened to decide to come by. Now all afternoon I had been sitting in a puddle of cold sweat because of a big black bigger than my hand spider that happened to come visit me. The things somehow got into my room and decided to trap me by lounging over the door. Of course I couldn't go out to the kitchen for the Baygon (ok Bop cause Baygon and me don't pull too good). It finally *after about 10 minutes of me whimpering* took a leisurely stroll elsewhere (ok it could have been shorter but I can't bear to look at them *shudders* so I was glancing back every so often to ensure it was where it was), and I sprang forth to the kitchen got the bop shuffled into the room and jumped on the bed eyes shaded and jump sprayed in its general direction. You know I'm sure i sprayed that thing about 20 times until I was choking in there but the em effer refused to die.
Now the imp comes by and I mention the spider, which is now over in a corner and staying there. A good while later I hear something, and I look to where it came from and it was the spider all balled up and gross. See that's how big the thing many spiders have you ever HEARD fall? EXACTLY!!!
This is the classic...the imp says 'I hope you don't expect me to get rid of it for you'. I laughed inside. I had no intention of asking the imp anything, but in that moment I thought "Voldy would have just got rid of it no question..just like that time there was a s spider on the gate when we were going to the beach one day..yes Voldy laughed at you but Voldy opened the gate so you wouldn't have to deal with the spider".
Needless to say after much exaggerated yawning, the imp got the message and left.

my gripeth for todayeth

When I wake up and look out my window I see a little courtyard thing with trees. I open the front door and step into a small area barred from the rest of the building and outside,and there's a line of trees. I leave the building and walk down the road and one side has houses where people have plants the other side is a park with a lot of you guessed it trees. If I walk down the street(at the bottom of my road) in either direction there are trees. The scenic routes that I like to take are filled with trees and at this time of the year every one's garden is in bloom. Wonderful, you might say right. Well yes to an extent. But me walking very close to all of this leads only to one thing-and no not the weird birds who eat who knows what and seem to have diarrhea every couple hours- conversations that go like this:
man from Layou (random friend of my aunt's) : hello gorgeous how are you (I'm about to give him a look but then notice all the lecherous looking men around and am suddenly filled with thanks that he didn't use my name)?
me: hey I'm ok
man from Layou: you look tired

Now it's not that I'm tired, but I don't particularly look bright eyed and bushy tailed because I've got gritty watery eyes, sniffles and sneezing every two minutes that I'm out of the house at this time of year and have stupidly forgotten to take some form of antihistamine.

How the hell have I managed to leave an island where I lived my whole life (ok fine for you technical folks, not all my life, I mean there were those times in American and well here, and that other island)on, surrounded by all manner of flora without so much as a hint of a sneeze unless I was coming down with a cold or managed to stick black pepper up my nose, but managed to come be a prisoner here and contract..hay fever. *sigh*

so endeth my gripeth

mixed signals? missed signals?

I'm very easily confused, and something confused me recently:

You're dating (and I use that word loosely because everyone including you knows that he lives with and is very much involved with the mother of his children) a man. You and the man flaunt your illicit relationship in front of everyone who cares to look in your direction. Something happens, you end it or he ends it.
See now here I'd assume the story ends...but nooooo.
You turn stark raving loony on the man, park outside his house at all hours, call his house at midnight then hang up.
I mean you didn't actually think he would leave her for you ...did you? He always states the opposite.
You go off into the world and happen upon a man that you find attractive, and woo hoo this one is single. You start dating. Yo flaunt that in every one's face as much as possible, as though you need to prove to the world that you're madly in love, and of course at every opportune moment, you shout from the mountaintops 'we're in love you know'.
Is it just me, or isn't it overly obvious when people are in love, therefore the in you're face 'we're in love you know' is just not necessary?
If that 'gag me with a spoon' behaviour wasn't enough, you then follow the ex (the one you went Norman Bates on) around, because you need for him to see you and the new man, and know that you are very happy without him.
Um, if you need to prove to the ex that you don't need him, isn't that kinda an admission that you're really not over him *scratches chin*.
And somehow the new man doesn't mind stalking your ex with you, because he needs to show him that he is the better man since he has captured your heart.'re a grown man over 10 years senior to the female you're seeing but you let her lead you around like a little pip squeak boy throwing it into ex mans face that you're so together now. Seriously? Isn't that kinda stupid of you? Doesn't something in the back of your skull thump you rapidly and exclaim ''SOMETHING AIN'T QUITE RIGHT BUB"

Y'all see why I'm confused? Can someone make sense of this for me? Thank you.
