Who had a party and didn't invite me?

Ha, this is who I found on my deck under the light this morning.
Looks like the local June Bugs had a stag party last night and got wasted.



That one poor bug even puked.

How those things can even fly astounds me. Kind of like carpenter and bumblebees. Nature is so amazing.

Oh, they are still alive, in case you were wondering. They'll be gone tonight, taking their party next door, where I hear there's going to be luna moth dancers.
OK, I'm done.

I watched a bumblebee hover for like ten minutes today. Like, it was just staring at the softball dugout like it was trying to figure out just wtf it was and how to make a nest somewhere. He'd fly off and then three seconds later come back and hover in the exact same spot.

.....Then another bumblebee zoomed in out of nowhere and they had an epic bee fight. ...I kid you not it was kind of awesome.

Haven't seen any junebugs around here just yet, I think we need the mayflies to come in and mob the place, then all die at the same time, then the junebugs can take over.

BEE FIGHT!
haha - yeah, the carpenter bees that chew on my garage do that. I swat them with a flyswatter when they're busy fighting. I'm a nasty person.
It is pretty cool to watch.

I hate mayflies. Especially riding the motorcycle near the lake. Ug.

(That's a pretty icon.)

Ahh, I love June bugs. They are adurrable.

When we had pet rats we used to go catch June bugs from the porch to feed them.

June bugs mean summer.

My dog eats them if I don't sweep them away from the door.
Stupid dog.

they need a tiny Sharpie marker so they can draw pictures on their wasted buddy's faces...

I love bugs. They have vices just like us. Some just can't control themselves and overdo it on the nectar. They won't remember a thing when they come to.

hahaha - poor bugs, their lives are so short, they deserve a little fun!

We all have our vices! Mine is chocolate. and butter. and bacon. and steak. I guess, bad food in general.

Thanks so much Q.

The books are great if you like the old-fashioned illustrations and Autobots. I was just telling a friend today that I sold you the books that have Trigger-Crotch Megatron. I kept just one. It's an old weird book about the Insecticons. http://www.amazon.com/Insecticon-Attack-Transformers-Rosenfeld-Dana/dp/0871350785?&camp=213293&linkCode=wsw&tag=supertv-20&creative=388405 I had it as a kid, and the mysterious illustrations just lingered in my brain all this time.

This site has info and scans of most of the old books. I adore it. http://www.physics.ohio-state.edu/~sstoneb/tf/books/

I also found http://superherouniverse.com/store/transformers/ Some different merch here.

Glad you liked your goods! I'm happy they went to a good home.

Awesome that you found a book from your childhood.
I have a couple books that I loved when as a kid (they're practically antiques now!) and looking at them makes me happy.

Great sites, I never saw those. When I have time, I'll go thru and look at all the scans! Thanks.

Those things are so fucking loud! Especially when you get the huge black ones. o.o

Loud? Are you talking about cicadas? They are noisy, but I have never heard June Bugs make a sound.
Unless you are talking about the thump you hear as they hit the side of the house.

Nooo. >.< They make a really loud buzzing sound for us. And yes, especially when they do that. xDDD
