it's been getting warmer in uchino, at least for sections of the day. in an effort to level out an electric bill, i prefer to let the evening breeze in rather than gunning for the AC. after coming in from a night run, i opened the door to my deck and had the screen door shut.
i'm on iChat and mid conversation i started seeing these little gnat looking bugs. think flying ants but maybe a third of the size of an actual ant. hence how you wouldn't really know how many there were around you, as i was to find out.
i get off iChat, decide to clean a little and shut the doors for the night. it took me about 10 mins to do the dishes. from the time i got off the computer, to the time i finished the dishes i had a community of these gnats infiltrate my bedroom area. i'm talking all over my walls, bouncing against my lights, on and in my bed, flying fucking everywhere.
again, i have been really calm under really stressful shit in japan over the last few months. i was calm but this shit looked like a scene straight out of someone's nightmare. there were so many. i feel that i had to have inhaled a few just from walking in and out the room to get my stuff.
so i woke up the company at like 9:30pm, and thanks to Mariana, i had a place to crash last night.
apparently the only way to get rid of these seasonal bugs, is to smoke them...lmao. i was too afraid to light paper and let it burn. but while speaking with Aisling it was brought to my attention that i have a shit load of incense, thanks to my man Bobby from my block in the Bronx. i lit every last one of those things. the attached picture is part of the cloud that was my room last night, before leaving. i still can't believe the randomness of the situation, as i clean up dead bugs today and clean everything in that room.
just another experience...hilarious! i can't wait to move to the new apartment. phase 1 of 2 underway shortly.
on a side note...i'm not too proud to admit i need attention. the lack of any type of affection is getting to me. i at least need that. the irony to it is, when i'm needy most i usually disappear...
i need to run this off....toodles.
