This evening, as TCB and I were on the couch watching tonight’s f-ed up Project Runway, a giant cockroach crawled over our front door. It wanted to watch the show with us; it had heard “cocktail dress” and got confused.
however, i will give you one piece of advice, if it applies. Don’t use mulch around your house. My whole life we’ve had a problem with roaches. but my parents moved into their new house and instead of using mulch my dad used rocks, and… no roaches!
they like to live in mulch. not such fans of rock.

So I put a step-stool on it.
