Look At That BBQ Header at the Top of My Blog. Bees!



So everyone is changing the layouts of their blogs these days. I just don't have the patience to do it right now so I simply added the picture you see above. It's an image of me barbecuing on my deck. I then realized there was a bee's nest under the grill. Using my catlike reflexes I screamed like a girl and ran inside to get my electric tennis racket bug swatter* - best invention ever - and went to town on the bees. They didn't stand a chance.

And on the subject of new blog layouts, two of my favorites are the blogs of Whiskey Marie and The Verdant Dude (aka B.E.Earl). I'm very, very jealous. I especially like how The Verdant Dude's blog has the options of tabs that let you have links to other blogs. And I'll add that these are two of my favorite blogs as well.

*Note that there are spikes hanging off of the electric tennis racket bug swatter. These show you that it's been used in many bee battles. They could easily poke out an eye but danger is my middle name. Well, actually "Screams Like a Girl" is my middle name. "Danger" is my Confirmation name.

Sista #2 and Michelle - You can't see me? Just walk around to the back of you computer then look because I'm the one holding the...wait...I mean....nevermind.

I like it, but what is that rubber-looking hose dohicky?

Dr Zibbs said...

JDizzle - what are you talking about with the rubber hose doohicke? Which Quadrant of the picture?

Jennifer and Sandi said...

You beat bees with a racket? And how does this work actually? You are one brave soul!! Wouldn't they go THROUGH the metal strings? Maybe it's me being a blonde. I'm so sorry I can't seem to help it!!

Have a SUPER Evening!
*TINK*

Jennifer - the wire strings are electified so when you hit them - they die.

Cora said...

Cool middle name, Dr. Zibbs! Mine is "Talks Like Harvey Fierstein" (for an explanation, please consult my Totally Awkward Tuesday post. If you dare).

Queen Goob said...

I thought those wire poker thingers were what you roasted big fat sausage over the grill with. And I think the rubber hose thing The Dizz was talking about is the outer part of the racket.

My middle name? Why thank you for asking, it's "Badass ninja chick that thinks she's funnier than she really is".

HEY!!! I'm thinkin' we may have a Pennsylvania Super Bowl!

Seriously this isn't a current pic is it?

Cuz if it is I'm slitting my wrists and letting it bleed out all over the 4 ft of snow still covering my deck.

I am deadly afraid of wasps and bees. And we have one of those tennis rackets, they are fuuuuun

Chris said...

After you ran off, I handled the problem for you:

No more bees!

B.E. Earl said...

Thanks for the kind words.

And what's cooking?

Gwen said...

Is that the Garden of Hope?

For a hot second, I thought the pic accompanying this post was a shot of someone popping someone else's zit.

MelO said...

Nice idea! It makes it feel so summery around here! :) I think I'll be hanging out more often

Megan said...

Don't hurt the tomato plant!

trogblog said...

Your backyard grass looks likes fake TV show grass. It's like I'm watching home improvement.

Cora said...

By the way, that is some mighty fine grass you've got there!! Someone has a green thumb. Or a gardener. :-)

Paper wasps love to build in my smoker- and I won't spray pesticides in something I cook in! They taste like crap after they've been smoked...

Candy's daily Dandy said...

Nice lawn Zibbs. Do you mow it yourself or do you have a lawn boy??

Giggle Pixie said...

Oh man, I totally need one of those tennis racket zapper thingies, becuase bees make me scream like a...well...like me!!

SkylersDad said...

Are you growing reefer there on the deck? For medicinal purposes of course?

raf said...

It would have been great to put a pict of you while "screaming like a girl"!!!

JDizzle said...

The yellow part but I guess that's the "racket". Which BTW is very cruel, you know honey bees are totally dying mysteriously all over the place and that if we have no honey bees our plants won't get fertilized and we'll have no food and we will all die! I think I know who to blame now. Consider my call to the FDA made.

Queen Goob said...

Think that thing would work on palmetto bugs?
