I guess I'll watch the rest of 1 tonight and steel myself for 2. I know 2 has got to be great....

    All I want to know is this: Does Gary Oldman get to come back for a bit like from the netherworld or something? That's really all I'm asking. I want Gary. Then again, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy should be out now. I know this has nothing to do with snakes. Sorry.
    I still feel sorry for the snake---how would you like to have Christmas lights blinking and people screaming at you? Horrid.

    Away in a garage, no grass for his bed,
    The sweet Christmas Snake laid down his wee head,
    The lights on the fake Christmas tree were a-shine
    As all-l around the branches he twined

    The mama and papa brought the tree inside
    The Christmas Snake yawned and the children all cried
    Dad grabbed a camcorder and what happened then?
    The sweet Christmas Snake was on CNN.....

    I thought coral snakes were very venomous. Their venom is neurotoxic like that of cobras and mambas.

    I thought you were going to snark that the snake slithered along the wall and went in side the vent. Friends of ours had a snake that lived in their wall and one day slithered out their bathroom vent. Needless to say, I totally freak anytime I am at their house and need to go to the bathroom.

    My vents are all in the ceiling so that won't happen. Come to think of it, there's one right over the toilet though.

    I know and this freaks me out. Especially at night and I fell asleep when my husband has been watching one of those animal or travel shows with snakes in them. Or when Leno or Letterman have those zoo people on who bring their snakes with them.

    At least coral snakes are little and don't inject too much venom. That keeps them from being super dangerous compared to their fellow neurotoxin snakey friends.

    Hehehe... um, well they probably won't be as bad as Peru. Maybe. Just avoid the black ones with a red underbelly . True about the phobias - I'm with you on the earthworms, don't mind snakes or spiders, but hate roaches and am TERRIFIED of bees.

    I currently have a five foot long king snake living in my basement. I wonder if he'll make an appearance in my Christmas tree? We have a pretty peaceful coexistence - he keeps the mouse population low, I pay the heating bills - but every now and then I wonder if he'll morph into a basilisk and kill me with his eyes when I go around a corner .

    Now remember that roaches are only as dirty as their environment. I heard that once on a television science program, so it must be true...
