Hey guys,

This is an impromptu post, but I really need to vent! One of the many things you don't know about me is that I am TERRIFIED of spiders!!!!!!

One of the reasons why I dislike warmer weather is because that's when all the creepy crawlies come out to terrorize me :(   I much prefer colder weather because that's when all these creatures are DEAD!

So, I'm in the sink/laundry room -If you don't know this, in Japan, the bathroom is separated into three rooms. The toilet has its own room, then the sink and washing machine are in another and then the shower/tub room- Anyway, I'm getting ready, when I happen to look down and, low and behold, I see this spider crawling next to the washing machine. I slowly put down my blow dryer, grabbed the Tilex, and sprayed the hell out of the little bastard (mind you, I was screaming the entire time...God only knows what my neighbor must be thinking :P).

This is the fourth f@#%*&% spider I've seen in five days and Summer isn't even here yet! I keep telling Aki that I want an exterminator to come and spray ever inch (centimeter) of the apartment, but he just laughs it off. He understands my fear, but he isn't taking this seriously since we were laughing about it when we talked about it.. What he doesn't know is, if I don't get an exterminator here soon (and by soon, I mean yesterday), I will not be held responsible for any damages (i.e. broken furniture, holes in the wall, fires) that I may do to our apartment!!!

You're probably thinking that my behavior is a bit ridiculous, but this is a legitimate fear. I'm a pretty tough hardcore bitch (and by bitch, I mean lady), but I just can't handle spiders. Unlike cockroaches (hate them too), spiders take residence in your common spaces and things (i.e. shoes, baskets, closets, etc), and they have no problem jumping on or attacking you... HELP ME! :'(

Anyway, enough of this rant, I need head out, but before I go...no post is ever complete with some random bonus pictures :)  This is for you Shalika :P

He looks so much better holding my bag :P

What terrifies you?

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.


  1. I'm afraid of cockroaches, not spiders.

  2. I understand what you mean! I saw a roach crawl across the side of my desk at work and I screamed so loud my coworker thought I went crazy. I refuse to sit at that desk till it was dead and I sanitized it. >< I freak out at anything with more or less than 1 leg. =) Yes, including humans, there are some scary ppl out there!

    1. Hahaha, you're awesome Ari!!! And yes, people are scary :P

  3. omg cool pictures!!


  4. Aww that sucks. We had a cockroach infestation over the winter here and I went absolutely bonkers. I couldn't sleep much in fear that the cockroaches would go all over me >.<

    Aside from the spiders, you look like you're having a blast in Japan! Didn't know about the bathrooms.

    Wish you well,

    1. Hi Jane, Oh my god!! There's no way I'd be able to sleep. Actually, I can't sleep now and I fear every dark corner in my apartment. Hope you're having a lovely day/night :)
