Jiminy Pays a Visit

Recently I read a reminder that grasshoppers are good luck, and realized I hadn't seen one in ages.
On Thursday I spotted a GIANT one on the outside of my living room window.
Yesterday morning I woke to find a small one inside, resting high on the closet door in our front room. When he was still there last night after work, I decided to keep him and name him Jiminy. When he was still there this morning -- exact same place -- I realized he's probably terrified, and it's probably not good to keep a grasshopper indoors. So, I set him free.
As he hopped off my front stoop, he called over his shoulder, "Thank yoooouuuu, Janna! I'll put in a good word with Geppetto about that good luck you're duuuuueeeee."
You're welcome, Jiminy.
And thank YOU.

New Resident Log: Day Two

It's cozy here. Not real tidy at the moment, but homey none the less. I can overlook the dirty dishes.
I'm being very careful to exist with little to no lasting impact. Nobody likes a new roommate who isn't conscientious about that.
Janna doesn't know that I've been sleeping with her at night. (And she thinks that guy with the weird eye---she calls him Rooney---is the bed hog. If only she had a clue!) She talks in her sleep. Funny stuff.
She hasn't yet noticed that I shower when she does, which is only because water conservation is important. I'm sure she'll thank me later.
There are SO many books here. I wish I could read.
There might be just as many pairs of shoes, but since I've got eight legs I can't borrow any.
Okay, that's it for today's log. I can tell Janna is pretty drained, and I think she's headed for the couch. I hope we watch another episode of Law & Order, I like that show! BUH BUH! Ha.
Until tomorrow,
*Stanley is my real name, not The Biggest Spider I've Ever Seen, as Janna initially assumed.
