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.

is it something in the air?

Gods, what a weekend it's been (generally a bad sign, when you're writing that on a Thursday). Half the people on my friends list seem to be throwing fits, deleting journals left, right and centre, and making major, life-changing decisions. And, on top of that, the wordoftheday (dropandgiveme50) is "equipoise". What am I supposed to write about "equipoise"? Something about dolphins?

Listen, I like reading all your journals (yes, you too, monkeyhands). You wouldn't be on my friend's list otherwise. I don't comment so much, but what's the point if I have nothing useful to add?

In other news, how the hell can (period) pain so severe it wakes me up be normal, and can I expect this every month from now on?
