    That's precisely why I'm afraid of moths, even moreso than crickets. They just flap all around and don't care if they flap right into your face. So many people think this is a ridiculous fear, and I fully recognize that there is no way a moth could hurt me. But enough people share my fear that there is a name for it (mottephobia) and a support group forum (ihatebutterflies.org, although I don't hate butterflies, I hate moths).

    I had mice in one of the houses I lived in once, I couldn't bring myself to kill them, or even trap them humanely because I barely saw them and they didn't bother me.

    They were so cute.

    Although I understand they are considered to be a health hazard so can see why others wouldn't want them in the house.

    I dunno. I'm still a little iffy about butterflies to be honest. I'm totally with you about moths. When one comes in the bedroom, I hide under the sheets until it's taken care of. I just imagine it getting in my hair or flying into my mouth as I'm screaming.

    Oh wow. That's an actual website.

    *trying to relate*

    We have these huntsman spiders (the non-fake spiders from Arachnophobia) where I live which are apparently attracted to light. Which sucks when you wear a head-torch to bed as I do for reading purposes. The little fuckers have dropped onto my pillow a few times and then chased me down the bed and across the room. They run fast and can jump a bit too. It's a bit like the scene from Aliens in the med-lab.

    Ahhh, why did I click that!? Eww. Eww. Do they even exist in the U.S.? If so, I'm never showering again.

    I love you so much right now. Nobody ever understands my moth thing!

    When I was pregnant with Thing 2 I realized I had never been entirely alone, and I wanted to be entirely alone for a few days before I went back to total togetherness with another human being that relies on me for all of its sustenence, so I went to my father-in-law's mountain retreat by myself. I took the long way up and stopped at a few places to shop or whatever, so it was after dark when I drove up the loooooooooong driveway and had to open two locked gates. I used my headlights to see, and at the second gate there was a HUGE-- I mean HUGE orange moth flapping around in the beam of light, trying to get me. It was fortunate that I was entirely alone, because otherwise my squealing and darting up to and away from the gate lock would have been very embarassing.

    Yeah. I knew better than to do that.
    I didn't dare click on it.

    JJJ, if I ever travel to Australia will you be my spider-killer? I'm not sure even Noah will touch that thing.
