Sundayy Sundayyyyyyy

How's every ones weekend going?

Me? I'm back at work.


We had a relaxing weekend. We took my Man's dog to a doggie restaurant because it was his (dogs) birthday. Very cute. There were all sorts of dogs of various sizes and shapes sniffing and tail wagging around. MiniWarrior was ecstatic. He zoomed around asking people if he could "pet their dog" with a big grin on his face.

The coup de grace for MiniWarriors weekend though, was the show on Discovery channel all about Preying Mantis'. Creepy bastard insects!! I can't believe we had one of those things in our house! Seriously.

We watched a 4 inch Preying Mantis catch a 10 inch Corn Snake.

Yeah you heard me.


Dang thing was chomping away while the snake was frantically writhing trying to escape.

Remember me joking about MiniWarriors Preying Mantis and how would turn its head and look at me like I was its next meal?

That thing really was sizing me up!

All, "Oh yeah. Yer next..." Smacking its lips and rubbing its barbed hands.


Yeah? Well, I've got a size 8 shoe for your pre-meal appetizer, Mr. freaky-ass Mantis!


I miss the good ol' days (last summer) of MiniWarriors last obsession over Lobsters.

At least they knew their place in the circle of life!

In Vietnam the Preying Mantis is an eating delicacy.

Hi Kat don't worry about the comment repeat, it's happening to alot of people and it so nice to hear from you that it's all good!
The doggie restaurant sounds like a lot of fun, If I was do do something like that I'd have to dose up on Benydril....I am VERY allergic to man's best friend.
I also wouldn't be sleeping to well if I had a Preying Mantis in the house.....EWWWWW! SHUDDER!
Have a great day!

Yeah!! In California we've banned those damned Praying Mantis'... Kinda like illegal immigrants!! Neither plan worked!! We still find those Mantis's in groups outside of Home Depot!! Looking for work, I guess.... Wearing their little sombrero's Sheesh!! With their sideways glances. Next they'll want to collect Social Security!!

When I was a kid, my brother put one of those things in my bed (the bastard) while I was sleeping.
Which is why I put a cockroach in his underwear drawer.

Dang...I didn't know they could kill a snake. I'll be more wary around them now!

A lobsters place is on my plate ;)
