Today was a good day. A damned good day.

Got to work outside today, and as I was working, I watched a vehicle pull up to the automatic gate, wait for it to open, and then drive off. After a few minutes, the gates started to roll shut, and as they did, I noticed a ribbon of white start flipping around.

A gottdamned snake!

I watched its death throes with a mixture of glee and pants pissing fear. (I severely hate snakes.) I walked over to the ex-snake, and gave it a look. It was only about a foot long, and a RATTLER! Dead. Just frickin' dead. Serves it right for trying to sneak up on me. 'Course now, I'm going to have to be careful out there. Plenty of places for them to hide.

Ah... a dead snake. 'Tis a good thing, indeed.

I knew it was going to be a good day when I saw that roadkill cat de mornin'.

I fucking hate snakes. Had a run in with a Cottonmouth one time. I will never forget that.

I hate snakes too. I've killed seven around my house, using whatever is handy...a pick-axe, a 1X4, my SUV, a Beretta...that was the 'best' kill. Little bastard went flying backwards through the air. Heh.

Awww, poor snakie :(
They don't bother me. It's the BUGS!! that I have an irrational fear of. I can't even kill them because that sickening crunch gives me the heebiejeebies.
