who needs scary movies...

Lord haf mercy, mama gettin' old!

So I ventured out to Bungalow 8 last night to help my homegirl DJ Kiss celebrate her bday and surprise engagement to her man, Mos (YEAH KISS!!) And while I LOVE , LOVE , LOVE getting dressed up and celebrating special occasions w the crew... I gotta tell you, it sure ain't as easy to do the whole dancing till 3am on a weeknight stroll no more. No maam. When I woke up this morning, I felt like a mack truck had rolled over, stopped and reversed over every part of my body from the top of the head to the bottoms of my feet. Just a mess.

And I'm not going to even try to explain how hard it was to wrap my head around the story I just read about the 31-year-old Indonesian man who was mauled to death by two kimono dragon lizards! What in the world??

So basically, homeboy is professional fruit picker (err-um, who knew those even existed?). And he's up in some sugar-apple tree doing what he does best. Then for whatever reason, poor thing falls off of the godforsaken tree and the lizards who just happen to be chilling at the bottom of the tree ATTACK!!! They bit the shit outta his hands, body, legs and neck. Mmm-hmm...

Apparently, the reptiles (which can grow up to 10 feet long and weigh damn near 150 pounds) have shark-like serrated teeth. And addition to the cuts, the bite can be deadly because its saliva contains roughly 50 different known bacteria strains. Eeeewwaa!! So dirty!

Seriously? If this ain't some ole cracked-out-Wes-Craven-sci-fi-animals gone-wild-type mess I don't know what it is. Good freakin' luck.


  1. I heard about that... and was stunned for a minute. I mean this guy has terrible luck...I'll never look at lizards the same again.

  2. Sidebar, some kimono loafers would be so hot right now for spring

  3. Word. My kid got a leopard gekko. I'm fattening him up for a purse. I know. Very un-pc. But what about the chick who handcuffed her hubby and bit him up?
