I’m having adventures in infestation! I’ve had some moths fluttering around my kitchen lately, which I mostly ignored, because whatever, stupid moths. Turns out moths come from maggots, and maggots make further moths. I found this out when I opened up my peanut butter yesterday morning and found some lovely maggots, wriggling around. Like, seriously, inside the peanut butter jar. How did they even get in there? Isn’t that airtight? So I’ve thrown out basically all of my food that isn’t canned or inside the fridge.
On the plus side:
- My kitchen hasn’t been this clean since I moved in, because I cleaned like a fucking banshee last night. A toothbrush and vinegar may have been involved.
- I got rid of a bunch of that food you have sitting around that you swear you’ll eat eventually but really will just take up space around forever. So much cupboard space!
- Tomorrow is 10% off for students at the Superstore, which is totally useful to me right now!
So, thank you maggots for all the lovely things in my life. Now, for the love of God, don’t come near my clothes. You can have all the peanut butter in the world if you spare my dresses.
In other news entirely, AST offered me some tutoring work! I knew that doing three weeks of unpaid, fulltime work would eventually lead to some form of a happy dance. The happy dance of gainful employment! Or at least less destitution! It’s a pretty awesome dance, so it’s too bad you guys can’t see it. I’m even wearing my harlot skirt today (above the knees!) so the Running Man is has that much more impact.
