    when suddenly something bites me in the neck. I reach up not thinking I was bitten, and realize there's something on my neck. Being an arachnaphobe I try and crush it and throw it off of me as fast as I can.

    After I calmed down a bit, I wanted to make sure I killed it, so I started looking for it. Turns out it was a ladybug. (ladybugs bite?!?) Just sitting there dead. I was thinking of taking pictures of it so I started looking for my spare lens for some reverse-super macro action. I can't find it, but poke at the ladybug a little. It seemed like it was reacting so I thought maybe it was alive.

    Ten minutes later it starts walking around, crawls on my camera strap etc. I was like wow, suprised it wasn't dead, thought it had to be hurting though.

    It's now been about two hours and I just saw it walk by going the other way at a grand ol' speed, I dare say it fully recovered. Which is good cause I hate killing living things what-so-ever. I'll even let misquitos bite me and not kill them.

    What a crazy little bugger, now (s)he's doing laps around a bottle cap. Over and over again.

    I have no point to this story by the way...

    It's funny that you don't have any point to the story there but I read the whole thing and am waiting to hear what happens next. Are you a writer in real life?? :lol:

    I was kind of a writer. Photography kind of pushed writing out of the way. I've written a few editorials back when I was protesting the war on iraq.

    I also started a book but it's only about half way done and I have no will to finish it. http://www.pepper-land.net/book/fullbook.html It's more of a children's book FYI (like 6th gradish).

    So I guess I'd say I'm a writer with nothing to write. :sillysmi:
