Pizza! And Hornets!!

Here's a pic of Steve (rootbeer1), Ray (profkampf), Bill (bearbeat), and Joe in Provincetown, courtesy of the SpiritusCam (http://www.spirituspizza.com/):



Note that they're using a garbage can as a picnic table.

In other news, there's a honking big hornet's nest attached to one of the recessed lights in our atrium:



That explains the sting the other day. Going out later to get a can of Hornet Killer--the kind that projectile sprays from 20 feet away. I love bees, but hornets are mean.

Jack:

Re: Spiritus photo: Cool! I've done that each time I've visited P-Town.

Re: Hornets' nest: It's not my place to guide your household decisions, but Geezus. I would be calling Larkin or some such to remove that thing and all its residents ASAP. :)

Hmmm...maybe you're right--because it's over a recessed light canister, the nest might extend up under the ceiling. An exterminator would have the tools to spray up in there, and the protective gear to keep from getting stung. I only have long underwear, and none of my hats have veils, alas...

OK, you've convinced me--I'll hang on to the hornet bomb and call Larkin.

Larkin? Don't you mean Orkin?

Your "bee outfit" reminds me of the joke about the entomologist who was bewildered by the unfamiliarity of the wasp sounds on the record he bought, but then he realized he was playing the "bee side."

Yes, Orkin. Larkin is a street in San Francisco.

And that pun is a-pollen.

Too bad it's a hornet's nest. If it was a bee hive, you could scrape it off the ceiling and bobby pin it to your hair....

Actually, they never called back, and I got dive-bombed on my way to work, so I used the spray. All dead now.
