Snakes in the Night

Late the other night, I keep hearing odd clattering noises... on investigation, we discovered a smallish carpet python knocking stuff off my bathroom vanity. The shock! The horror! My bathroom vanity is cluttered, and the mirror needs cleaning! [gasp]


And what does any warrior goddess do when there's a snake upsetting order on her bathroom vanity? go for the broom, pick up the snake, and take it outside!


I was even clever enough to put on my knee-high boots, just for safety's sake... but in my hurry, I didn't shake my boots out first - I always shake out my boots, and nothing ever falls out - this time, I didn't, and lo! A great big spider crawled out and up my leg! Eeep!


No problems, all in the line of duty for a majik faerie.
(and yes, I do hang around the house late at night dressed like that – thanks to Purple for taking photos!

The snake was released outside, hopefully the little guy is now cavorting freely with other snakes, and eating mice from around the house.



  1. How gorgeous (both you and the snake)!

  2. beautiful snake!, and sexy green bra too!

  5. Wow, the spider is really huge, the snake is wonderful.


  6. Um, I'm never coming to visit you now. The sexy green bra is a huge pull, but snakes and giant spiders?? EEEK!!!

  7. I'm amazed at how many people are fine with the snake but totally freaked out by the spider.

    and Beth - don't worry, I'd keep you safe ;P

  8. yeah, but I'm bad-ass. No heart attacks. :D

  9. Okay, so the first thing I would have done is shriek and shudder and squeal like a pig.

    Then I'd want to keep both as pets.

    P.S. I love your late night lounging outfit!

  10. I wish to express my gratitude for your kind-heartedness supporting those who require help with this particular study. Your very own dedication to passing the solution up and down turned out to be unbelievably invaluable and has frequently encouraged guys much like me to achieve their objectives. The helpful help denotes a lot to me and substantially more to my office workers. Many thanks; from all of us.
