What a let down

It was definitely a let down this morning at 4:20 when the alarm went off and I realized it was Monday morning and vacation time was over. My boss asked me today if I did anything exciting. I told him not unless you count taking a lot of naps as exciting. His response was BOR-ING! After that, every time he saw me he repeated the same word. I finally told him that next time I will gladly do something with a little more pizazz but I'm gonna be needing a BIG bonus. I got a laugh out of him but I didn't hear the word boring at all the rest of the day.

Since play time was interrupted by my job today, I didn't create anything new. Today I want to share a couple pictures with you that I took the other day. I was outside playing with my camera and kept seeing this little white piece of fuzz floating around. I ASSUMED it was a piece of fuzz anyway. Well it landed on one of the plants, and then it took off again. The next time it landed I got a closer look. It was actually a bug. I have never seen one of these before. Well, come to think of it, I probably have but always thought it was either pollen or just a piece of fuzz.
Is this not the weirdest looking thing? If anyone knows what it is, let me know.

Hi, that's a mealybug! Not good ... I used to get them on my outdoor ferns a lot. If you catch them early, just dab them with rubbing alcohol on a swab or cotton ball.

Wow! That is a very strange bug! I was watching flying fuzz yesterday and imagining they were bugs. Maybe I should look closer next time.
