C'mon Lobster!

This will have to be a multiple post entry - I have to get to bed and don't have time for them all.

You see, when we got back from Wisconsin we were stunned to discover that while we were gone we had a little problem with lobster infestation. We're going to talk to the Orkan guy next time he comes around to see if he can spray for them, but for now we've just been taking pictures to document the evidence.

Have I ever told you about the time I thought our house was broken into by the Lobster Seriel Killer? Oddly enough, while in Wisconsin I'd just told that story to my sister-in-law. So when I found the first lobster, for just a few seconds, I wondered if she'd left it there somehow.

The First Lobster We Found The First Lobster We Found
The first lobster we found was by the washing machine. That's the first thing I do when I get back from a trip - unpack and start a load of laundry. So I thought it kinda weird that this little guy was sitting in front of our washing machine. Who put it there?

It's like you are walking around and suddenly you see a bit of red out of the corner of your eye.
Yep, It's Another Lobster Yep, It's Another Lobster
Between the hurricane lamp we got at GARF and the fairy home we got at the North Georgia Celtic Festival. If you had to make your home somewhere, this lobster picked a good spot.
Have you seen the little vacuum? Have you seen the little vacuum?
I thought at first it was Toaster who had hidden little lobsters all over our house while we were gone. She had a key. But after John searched through this closet for at least 10 minutes looking for all the pieces to a handheld vacuum cleaner and never mentioned this one - so that I discovered it later in the day looking for a lightbulb...well, I just knew at that point it had to have been John who hid them.
How Could You Miss This? How Could You Miss This?
How could he not have seen this? It's practically in 3D for heaven's sake. But nope, he just didn't notice it. Maybe I had a better angle.

This one was hard to miss. It's pretty big and the coffee table was pretty empty. It's a back massager! Whoot!
Flashbacks! Oh the Horrors! Flashbacks! Oh the Horrors!
Since the lobster infestation stemmed from the original bed lobster we figured we had better check the bed. Sure enough, under my pillow...Lobster.

That is delightful!

And the fairy house people have a booth just up from Raven's Nest, and are the home of the Biscuit Fairy, who delivers every Sunday morning of faire.

My friends are the best!!!
I have TONS of them. It was so much fun running into these guys everywhere.

I love those fairy houses!! One year at the NGCF I bought 4 of them to give out as Christmas presents and I think they were the HIT at Christmastime. Actually, the one in this picture was originally to be a Christmas present but I fell in love with it and kept it for myself then bought the others next visit.

Hmmmm, I wonder if I can get one that comes with a Biscuit Fairy? That would be perfect.

Hey, that washer lobster was precariously perched in the door of the washer, so that it would fall out when you opened it up. The door wouldn't shut when the lobster was in there, so I left it slightly ajar and was hoping that the weight of it would hold the lobster in place. I guess not.
He must have escaped to the floor after I left. Perhaps he didn't enjoy being squished?

ummmm, maybe i don't want you riding in my car tonight after all...
Jul. 20th, 2007 01:21 am (UTC)
Aha, well maybe it was there and i just didn't notice it until AFTER I'd jarred the door and knocked it off?

I must confess, I moved it a wee little bit to be closer to the bleach in the picture so that it would be more obvious that it was next to the washer. Shhhhh! Don't tell!
Jul. 20th, 2007 03:32 am (UTC)
Oh no!!! You've ruined the illusion! I'll never think of lobsters, washing machines, or bleach the same way again!!
