SNAKE! ON MY FLOOR!

Seriously, this is the most random thing in the world. I don't recall anything stranger ever happening to me.

I was sitting here, typing away on AIM, I get up to grab my cell phone and see... a three and a half foot snake slithering out from underneath our loveseat. It scared the ever-living shit out of me, and I am no stranger to snakes. That being said, I maintain that if you are not expecting to see a snake, it will always scare you, no matter how experienced you are with them.

This particular snake is red and orange, and it's definitely a corn snake. I used to own a boa constrictor, so thank God I actually know how to care for this thing for the night, because what the else hell do you do with a renegade snake at 2 a.m., when it is obviously someone's pet? I guess it's lucky that I didn't meet up with Dave, because if I hadn't found it, I don't know what would have happened. Faith probably would have gone mental.

I doubt he's been out for long, because he's extremely happy and healthy. Also, he is quite friendly. Right now, he is giving me a back massage. I actually think I quite like him, but he still scared the shit out of me.

He belongs to my neighbor! She just came home, and I asked her and apparently he's been missing for a whole month! How wild is that?

Presumably, under our loveseat and/or in transit.

In short, no idea. Can't even begin.

I actually really love them, and this experience makes me want one. Luckily, since he belongs to the neighbor I can just take him whenever I want to play. :)

I don't think the date would've made much of a difference, my brain still would have been wrenching all over itself, 'cause what?

he escaped from the movie set because Samuel L Jackson's language offended him.

I am LAUGHING MY ASS OFF right now and I am at work and so feel pretty dumb and I blame YOU.

AAAAhHAHAhahahahHAhahahahahaa. Oh, dear. I'm sorry. That would scare the pants off of me too. Most definitely.

In college, my current roomie was on the toilet and to her utter shock, found a snake in the bowl!!! EEEEEEEEK.

Random creepy crawlies as of late:
1)a dead chameleon on my porch (he was cute!)
2)a rabid red (probably poisonous) spider that stretched its dastardly web across my front lawn. I couldn't see it in the dark and upon coming into the light, realized said creepy crawlie was ON MY ARM. Much screaming and flailing ensued.
