for the first time in a LONG time, we have flies in the library and they are driving us nuts. we originally had three flies. a page killed one. now the two that are left are determined to make us crazy. every department has had a run in with them. last night, a parttime ref librarian swore she would bring in a flyswatter and kill them herself. she forgot the flyswatter, so she was livid today. now she has a vendetta.
a very large mosquito was also killed by the same page who killed the fly: she's our hero.
yesterday, at lunch, a circworker slapped a big spider out of the hair of the childrens' librarian and the CL got royally creeped out. she was greatful for the swat but today she said she washed her hair twice last night and could only imagine that the spider laid some eggs in her hair. eek!
the other day, the same circworker that swatted the spider said to me, "stand still!" and whacked me pretty hard on the shoulder. i said, "OW! what are you doing?!" she said that the fly had landed on me and she was determined to 'get it'. gross. if she did squash it, it would have splatted on ME!
