Basil, my ass

Some of you may remember my lovely fruit fly infestation. The vinegar trap that Listie suggested worked great, but I was worried that I was attracting fresh fruit flies with the bait. Plus, the sight of a bunch of drowned fruit flies was skeeving me out just a little. So I googled the problem (what the hell did we ever do without google?), and several sites suggested placing basil in the kitchen, as it repels fruit flies.

Not so much.

I got a big bunch of basil, broke off some sections, and scattered it around. Those little bastard fruit flies were hanging out on the basil, all, like, "Yay! A new place to party!"


I mean, at this point, there really aren't that many of them left, it's just the idea of the little buggers that's pissing me off.

Lucky for me, I'm moving soon. I hope the fruit flies don't decide to come along.

I think we actually talked to people in person before Google. And we had a lot less trivial knowledge. I'll trade you raccoons for fruit flies. I haven't seen 'em yet, but since I planted some vegetables, I'm sure they'll find their way here.

I don't know what we'd do without Google.

We check everything and settle all arguments by Google.

And we still talk to people!
