Have spent the last few days in Dallas staying with friends & playing at FenCon – which was awesome – and meeting new folks – which was awesome, even if too many people make me want to hide under a rock. And it’s been so damn hot (by my standards) that it’s only after dark that I can go outside. But hey.
Now I’m in Arkansas with Sooj and Ryan, which is so awesome. The crickets are loud enough to drown out conversations. The spiders are big enough to eat people. And apparently there are water moccasins and cottonmouths! The only downside is that Our Drummer John isn’t here with us, so our ordinary Designated Victim isn’t here… guess I’ll have to keep an eye out myself.
Wish I’d brought my good camera. There was an orb weaver the size of my thumb earlier!
Tomorrow I’m hoping to get Sooj’s bass and vocal parts for the solo project done. And walking. And playing with dogs. And napping…
Sorry for the multi-posting madness – SNAP was not working correctly. I threatened it with spiders.
Hug Sooj. For me, and on general principles…
Ben–as I understand things, water moccasins and cottonmouths are the same critter, just two different names. Kind of like cougars, pumas and mountain lions.
Beware-those spiders will go for your pillow.
If I get close enough, I’ll ask Mr Water Moccasin and Ms Cottonmouth if they are the same species, and whether or not they make little baby Cotton Moccasins together 🙂
So glad you came to FenCon! Please come see us again!
Enjoy all those critters that usually try to attack me. I will stay in the frozen north fighting off the giant earwigs.
Those damn thumb-sized arachnids… 😉
