God is angry.

I’ve been noticing an increase in strange insects around our home lately. There have been more black beetles, enormous moths, crazy dangerous looking flying things, and just plain oddities around than in any other year I remember. Those of you who know me will recall that I am not Fond Of Insects in any way, shape, or form. I mean, I recognize that they play a role on our world and it’s not their fault that they’re so creepy, but really. I don’t want them on me. That has made this summer a particularly trying one, because as I mentioned, there are some odd things creeping around lately, and I’m starting to wonder if God has finally decided to rain down a plague on our house.

The latest specimen is this little critter, displayed below. We found him/her sticking to the screen of our office window. It looked like a twisted hybrid of a hornet and a locust, complete with BIG OLD stinger thing sticking out its abdomen. Fun! I can’t identify it, can any of you? Sorry that it’s not in the best position, but I wasn’t going to flip it over and risk it ejecting some foul acid from it’s backside. Play along at home: with what are we being cursed?

Evil insect from hell.
