/me collapses in a heap

| | Comments (6)

I've had such a sucky day. I was positively bouncing yesterday compared with today. Perhaps it was sleeping in a different bed. Perhaps it was the hour and a half commute. Perhaps I just ran out of serotonin - used it all up yesterday or something :/ At any rate I had no energy all day and everything pissed me off. My boss even managed to stress me out within 30 seconds of coming into the office for the first time after he'd been away for a few weeks.

I've been looking for new boots for months but they don't make women's black boots, except in winter, if you're lucky enough to find them. So I'm going to have to get shoes instead or something.

I did find a very cool craft shop today, though, and got some plaster of paris. Going to try out the plaster and icing sugar mix and see if it makes any difference to the cockroach population here.

plaster of paris and icing sugar mix? How does that work then?

apparently they eat both the icing sugar and the plaster at the same time because it's so fine. Then when they drink, the plaster is supposed to set and solidify their bowels, and they die. That's the theory, dunno how well it will work til I try :)

I suggest Combat roach gel, or the baits, if you can't find it. It sterilizes the roaches, which prevents the dead bodies just becoming more roach food for the next generation, or attracting more roaches. I haven't seen a roach since I used it a year ago. It's not completely natural, but it won't hurt most animals...

ew don't like the sound of that plaster thing at all...

I think I'm on a perpetual search for the perfect pair of boots. Slowly, I'm getting closer to my ideal pair...

how is that with the fish? That's my biggest worry with insecticides. Wonder if you can even get it in Australia..

I heard on the radio this morning that elderly cockroaches are prone to arthritis. So castrate all the male cockroaches you find and then just wait for their joints to seize up. Problem solved.
