I wanted to make a post earlier, and then I remembered that my life is incredibly boring and the most interesting thing I have to say is that I actually started working on my thermal physics referral. But then something exciting (and disgusting) happened.

Maggots. There were maggots in my kitchen. I couldn't believe it. I spent about fifteen minutes wringing my hands about what to do, then I boiled the kettle, poured hot water over them all (I had to boil the kettle five times because some of them just wouldn't die), scooped them up onto a dustpan, and left them in the garden. Then I left my mother a note to tell her that I had done this -- partly in case there was a nest which needed to be dealt with but mostly because I just killed a bunch of maggots and it was totally disgusting and I could do with some props. Ugh.

Not as bad as what you dealt with, my I keep finding spiders all over my room and the rest of down-stairs area, including my shower. My room is on the bottom floor. I don't know how they keep getting in. :/

Gross. But well done.

It was so gross, Kate. I would rather watch The Human Centipede than do it again.

Under the kitchen mat, most disgusting thing ever, hundreds of what I think were ant larvae - yellow and about 1 cm long. I killed them with the vacuum cleaner (every person I've told the story to now insists that that wouldn't have killed them at all and that there's now an ant colony living inside the vacuum cleaner), I just couldn't bear to get any closer.

Ugh, ugh, ugh. I hope there isn't an ant colony inside your vacuum cleaner. I'm not even entirely sure the maggots were completely dead after boiling, which is why I left them outside.

I can just imagine the smell. You are a stronger woman than I.

The smell wasn't too bad but the whole idea of "oh god, maggots" was just overwhelming.
