A Moment of Silence, Please

MiniWarriors Dad called me at work today.

Jessica-the-Mantis has passed.

A moment of blog silence, please while we honor Jessica.

Grisly cricket and grasshopper head consumer.

Freaky foamy egg sack layer.

She was a good bug for she madeth the MiniWarrior smileth.

May she rest in peace.

...thank god.

So sorry, but GREAT headstone!! MiniWarrior's Mantis' don't seem to be lasting very long. Has he been poking them?? Or maybe they are gorging themselves on lesser insects too much?

I kinda had a thing for Jessica... for almost a week! If you still have the eggsack, her 'scarey insect' bloodline will live on.

BTW, I am compiling a list of names for those name tags. So far I have Dick and Jane. Get busy!!! LOL
Thanks sooooo much for your comments!!

god you're funny!
How the hell did you make that stone

Cindy said...

May you rest in peace Jessica, knowing you left behind a large enough legacy to continue your job of CREEPING us the HELL out.....*Shudder* for a long time to come.

Bob-a-roo: Mantis apparently don't live very long...Especially in the cold. I think she was probably done in by having to stay in her habitat in MiniWarriors Dads garage. MiniWarriors stepmom was freaked out and didn't want jessica to live in the house, lol.
Last I heard, MiniWarriors Dad thought that MiniWarrior had scraped off the egg sack and was putting it on a tree...I'll find out for sure when I pick him up on Wednesday evening...*prays*

LaChanson: I know. I'm sorta torn. She was fascinating to watch! in a sort of evil way :P

Jadey: I found a tombstone generator online!! LOL :D

Cindy: This should be the end of bugs til then I hope he's moved on to another fixation! *crosses fingers*

Jadey >'.' said...

I went into Target & at the door there was a ton of hello kitty stuff for $1 each!!!!!

Aafrica said...

Flip Flop Momma said...

that headstone had to of cost a fortune..hehe

Haphazardkat said...

Jadey: I came across them last Saturday evening and swooped on them!! The cashier said to my guy, "Oh it's so nice that you bought her all these Hello Kitty's, she must really love them!"
We both answered in unison..."You have nnnnnnnnno idea!"
Looked at each other and cracked up. :D

Aafrica: Father time is the curse that plagues us all. Alas, poor sweet freaky ass Jessica. ;)

FlipFlop: I'm reduced to selling baggies of crickets on the street corners. "Crickets! Get your Crickets! Only slightly chewed on!"

Catwoman said...

May she rest in peace.

I can't say that I'll miss her scary stares. I always felt like she was going to reach through the monitor and eat me!
