Day Off

Some days it's hard to go to work at all.

Ants Strike Back

We thought the ants were (temporarily) eradicated.
Turns out we missed one small brigade.

It makes sense. It's like an armored ant farm. But there was one fatal flaw in their plan.
A stinky smokey flaw.

Passion Fruit

I was led through the rainforest
to a place to pick fresh passion fruit,

but you've got to get through this guy first.

Today I went in search of key lime juice because I was craving key lime pie.

Mango key lime juice sounded like an even better choice to me.

It was.

Dead ant, dead ant...

We have an ant problem. We've tried several remedies and things improve for a little while. And then you notice that everything in your house seems to have at least one ant on it.

I tried asking them to leave. I threatened them with poison. It didn't work.

Then I found Terro. It lures them in and then they take the poison back to their nest.

Which, apparently, is in the wall behind our power outlet.

I haven't seen an ant in 2 days.

Last night was the big finale.

Christmas Parade

Yesterday's Christmas Parade was amazing.

There were plenty of speakers (to make sure everyone heard the soca bands),

outrageous costumes,

and hundreds of women doing things with their hips that would make a Bangkok hooker blush.

And plenty of steel drums.

These guys are always a guaranteed good time!

Christmas Village

It's festival week, so we went to explore the Christmas Village in Frederiksted.

It's a lot like the VI version of the state fair.

But without the pigs and fried oreos.
