Surprise sink

This is great! I took these pictures in a movie theatre one day. I wanted to post them as "not something you want to see in a movie theatre." 

But lo and behold, I had no idea that this theme would return and re-inspire. 
DEFINITELY NOT SOMETHING YOU WANT TO SEE IN YOUR HOTEL ROOM!

Lisa said...

Oh yuck !!! That is one thing that I have a total disgust for. yucky pooh, blick disgusting !!

Hoku said...

At least it wasn't a centipede or cane spider!!!

Jodi said...

Blech! That just gave me the chills.

Todd said...

You should see how big they are in Fiji. We had to leave the lights on at night in our hotel room. LOL.

Miztification said...

Ewww! If they're bigger than that in Fiji, that's a place I don't need to go. What's really scary, is when they're that big (or bigger ) and they fly. *shudders*

meg said...

OMG I love this blog. Sorry for being a dork, but I had to stop lurking and just come out and say it. There.

Whittaker Woman said...

I just moved from LA to Georgia, in LA bugs like those mean you are somewhere that is dirty and unkept. Here in Georgia they are just a part of life. So NASTY! H

Pam said...

Oh HELL no.....can't do cockroaches. If it'll crunch when I squish it, I call in the reinforcements. That's the man's job. I don't even wanna know....having said that, I love camping, so go figure...LOL

Steve C. said...

Ahhh, Hawaii. The time to get concerned is when you STOP seeing them everywhere!

James Hernandez said...

Jorge,

This is what I face in Tallahassee Florida every day. Cockroaches are legion! I usually introduce the vicious beasties to a watery burial at sea!! FLUSH

Lisa said...

eghhh, gross.

IslandPearl said...

Burial at sea works only if they drown. Which they don't.

Bug spray just makes them loopy, then they fly crooked which makes them even more obnoxious.

Unfortunately, like vampires, they must be staked then burned.

Too much trouble, I say.

Like Cher and Madonna, we just have to put up with them -- they'll outlive us all.

Athene Numphe said...

Also not something you want to see on the interwebs. Especially if you have an irrational screaming-and-running-away fear of them.

Chas said...

oh, so gross. Just one of the joys of living in paradise! It's one thing I will NEVER miss about Hawaii.

lostinphilly said...

Here in Philly in the summertime, if you walk outside there's an ARMY OF THEM all over the sidewalks! Call in the troops! Ughh!

Heather (a.k.a. Bella) said...

Ugh!! I lived in FL for a couple of years, and Palmetto bugs were everywhere. Once, at work, our receptionist rolled her chair over one (by mistake), and all this nasty, cottage-cheesy stuff came squishing out.

*shudder*

Julie said...

Ewww! I'm glad I don't see many of those up in Canada. Even on my fall trip to NYC I was surprised to only come across one the whole time I was there (he was walking down the sidewalk)

Although a few times a year we do have do deal with one or 2 of these..

bethany james leigh shady said...

my suggestion to all when staying in poipu, kauai...stay at the hyatt, not the sheraton.

i also had an ant crawl on my in the bed last night. awwww, memories of our old house.

Vincent Madison said...

Yup - not as common here in Canada, although I saw a freaking huge one at the concession stand of the local drive-in theater. Yuck :(

Crank said...

What did ya go see at the theater? Madagascar 2? Maybe they were Madagascar hissing beetles. Y'know....for atmosphere.

redelf said...

OoOoo. I have a mouse in my house....

Suzie-Q said...

Oh geez. Here come the dreams again. :-(

Laura Caçoeiro said...

But you kill a cockroach or not? ;)

Movie Star Wife said...

Here is another gross cockroach story:
I was supervising after school programs. One day I went to a site to do quality checks, etc. When I got there the first thing the site supervisor said was, "you might not want to set down your bag." And then she told me, "and don't use the phone. It stopped working and it turns out that there are cockroaches inside of it. Can we buy a new phone?" Eeeeeeewwwwwwwwwww!

Mother Hoodwink said...

Oh my, a warning next time please. I have two phobias. One is vomit (Can proudly say I have an 18 year streak. Yes, I know this is weird.) and roaches. I had never seen one until I moved from Virginia to New Orleans. I think their fast movements and how they can change direction so quickly is what scares me so much. Like if I'm not fast enough, they will crawl right up my leg and kill me. What mystifies me is that they can survive nuclear holocaust but if they flip over onto their backs, they'll eventually die. Weird.

bianconiglio said...

Eeeeew! Pretty huge! Did you give it a name? IPO could be good! I read that's the hawaiian name for darling, sweetheart. Glob!

Flá Romani said...

Ecaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Dharma_is_Lost said...

Wow...and I thought the lizards in my bathtub in a Jamaica (5 star hotel) were bad!!!
I have to say, I really can't handle bugs. I'd take lizards any day!
By the way - Great blog Jorge!

D S said...

you live in a tropical climate. If that bothers you... there's always Alaska!

Jill said...

Having lived in Australia I have seen much bigger ones than that.
Once woke up with one in my hair. No more sleep that night YUK YUK

mamakau said...
