No. I will stop mid-type and go to my beloved dictionary my grandmother gave me when I graduated high school in 1977.

No, it's not really that entertaining.

Clearly I do not, as is evident by my last post. Though hearing about a fist may have been interesting.

Tpbm is taking this fine day off, and catching up on some much needed rest.

Well technically neither of those examples are insects, but I had a Rose Hair Tarantula named Sally. When I went off to college, she went to one of my science teachers. She was very friendly and easily handled.

TPBM has eaten insects. On purpose.

No. I'm sure that's how my ancestors made it through famines. I hope we don't have any famines where I am in my lifetime...
tpbm worries about food riots bringing down all sorts of lovely things.

Early spring when they blossom, I could surely use a chainsaw. I'd prefer the arable land in central San Joaquin valley CA be used more diversely.
TPBM finds themselves compulsively shopping for things to take to the desert! often realizing you already have it (a habit), don't need it(blinky shiny silliness) or don't have the space for it.

Quite the opposite.. I usually dry myself off in the shower before even getting out just to avoid the blast of chilly air.

only if it entails a paper bag full of fresh doggie doo and some lighter fluid. Light , ring, run, howl with laughter when the home owner stomps the flames out.

tpbm hopes the fire season this year will be mild if not existant

Drive in? Only the time was when we snuck a friend in in the trunk and we drove over every bump and dip we could find in the dirt lot. I did used to cruise the 'vard. From White City Bowling up to Ben Lomond Lanes and back, again and again. 25 blocks of obnoxious teenageers riding in cars.

TPBM would rather lounge on a beach than bob around on a floating theme park.

Absolutely! I'd rather be able to get into the ocean, rather then float hundreds of feet above it sitting in a hot tub.
