Forum craziness!

Two things happened this past week month. First off, Kaitlin unknowingly submitted herself to my evil plan to coax her into mod-ship. I in turn realized how badly I needed more help: There were entire threads that were off-topic! Well, at least 3 pages were off-topic. Still!Of course maybe it’s just that Jan and I weren’t pulling our weight….
The other thing that occurred was me doing a HUGE screwup. I split a thread and I had left a spam message checked so that spam message ended up being the thread starter. I then tried to delete said message but inadvertently deleted the whole thread. I then spent the next hour copying and pasting and finally going into the database itself and changing the timestamps on the posts so the thread made sense.

And that’s all for now! Will make another update later.

Another Encounter With Evil

As some of you know, there has been a moth in my room this past week. For the most part I’ve managed to handle my insane phobia of bugs. It’s easier when there is another human in the room. At any rate, my roommate left for the weekend, which left me alone with Moth. I wasn’t sure where he was so I just wanted to make sure he wasn’t in my bed/pillows. I’m not sure where he came from, but he was suddenly out flying at me, which goes against everything everyone always says about bugs being more scared of me!

I made strange noises, ran backwards, and my blanket fell off the bed. The Moth was nowhere to be seen. I then realized the Moth could be under my blanket trapped. I freaked. I couldn’t leave the thing on the floor forever, but I didn’t want to pick it up. At some point I climbed onto my roommate’s bed (can’t remember why) and looked down and saw Moth just sitting on top of the blanket. Oh no he didn’t!

So now I’m trying to find something in the room to spray him with. Something toxic. But alas, nothing would reach the Moth. I then think to myself “why isn’t there any water?” Oh wait! I have a watter bottle, but it’s not very full and no way to ensure the water would hit Moth. Aha! I have a bucket! I put some water in the bucket, climb back onto my roommate’s bed (and got her blanket a little wet. oops!), and eventually fling the water out onto the moth. It took two splashes and some air freashner, but Moth stopped moving. The floor was soaked, obviously. I took the vacuum and sucked the Moth up, which was tramatic because the body flipped over and his legs stuck out and…it was freaky and I made more noises.

So now the Moth is gone, and I have no blanket to sleep under. But the Moth is gone!
