getting rid of moths the natural way

Well, the bad news is that my little problem at work isn't resolving. Mr Boom has now had a worm pulled and his hole patched three times -- and been reinfected three times, the third time within seconds of my putting the phone down on IT support. In the meantime, I'm not getting the report I need finished for next week done. But I am getting stress-related eczma.

The good news is that thanks to trained aromatherapist dotty I know have a little brown bottle full of something that smells lovely to me, but which (apparently) will persuade the moths to move into my neighbour's house. Those I don't kill for their careless fluttering. Ah, death smells sweet.

Feeling insufficiently traumatised, I went to the UPP to see Dark Water, which finished the job nicely. (It was more than just) take equal parts Fascination and Don't Look Now, put them in a nasty tower block, and add water. Bad water. Like in Ring, the problem is the ghosts that are soggy, smeary, sticky. That cling. Also like Ring, it has a sensible domestic message: fix drips before they get serious.

What worm? I made a CD with everything needed for MS-Blaster and it sorted my dad out fine without the need to connect to a network while doing it.

Yeah, well, unfortunately we're not talking sorting out one PC belonging to somebody's Dad here. I think they're actually trying to /avoid/ having to do a walk-through.

We're also not talking MS-Blaster. Or Sobig, for that matter. Never underestimate the little guys.

Our IT sweeties are pulling their hair out here trying to work out what's patched and where there might still be infection.

... now, there would be a calendar worth buying. Put it right next to the Nudie WI calendar ;P

Great idea!
... I'll put out a general request in my journal, but claim it's all your idea.

I'm trying to decide whether that's actually a good thing to claim the credit for. I suspect it might cast dubious shadows upon my character. On the other hand, who knows what intriguing things one might amongst dubious shadows.
