Creature of the Night

My new homieIt’s been awhile since I posted and I do feel bad.  Really, really bad.  I’ve been hit with an allergic reaction that makes me quite uncomfortable and not a nice person.  Believe me, it’s bad enough that I can’t act right when it’s hot, but with the allergic reaction, I turn into something of a sociopath.

Since I can’t really leave my house because of the “disfigurement”, there’s nothing much for me to post.  I missed all sorts of cool events happening throughout Los Angeles and that’s made me even more angry.  I have been able to get outside the house at night, though leaving my property was still not an option.

I’ve been kickin’ it with this little guy for the past week.  He often shows up around 9pm and around 11, he comes nears me and just paces.  I’ve named him Origami and we have lots of fun.  Not really, but since I’m housebound, my concept of ‘fun’ has severely diminished.

But the heat’s gone away (for now) and my skin is kind of clearing up.  Got some weird looks when I went to the store this morning, so clearly I’m not fit yet for human consumption, but it’s a matter of time.  Soon, I’ll be back out in the city and able to talk to people without biting off their heads.

  1. Thanks…I just went to Jack in the Box and had to go inside. Everyone stared at me like I was a leper. :( Maybe I should play possum, though I’m kinda wishing for a hedgehog so I use it to scratch. This is worse than chicken pox.

  2. Sorry to hear about that unfavourable development. And I am glad to hear that you are nevertheless getting better.
    So, does the opossum hiss at all? Or does it wait for a handout? I would imagine that, like the wave of snakes, coyotes and other creatures driven from the hills (I hear from many folk in Pasadena and the rest of the Foothills about the dramatic increase as the heat wears on), it is in search of water as well as food and respite.

  3. No hissing. When we lived in Hollywood there was a huge one that would hang out with my husband at night. This one I think is scavenging whatever crumbs my children dropped through the day. The photo above was taken after it had discovered a bag of trash in that spot the night before. The bag was only there for 5 minutes, but it goes there on the off-chance there’ll be another bag waiting.
