ack! stinky!
There is distinct skunk smell outside, and it is permeating my house. Wolfie says it's skunk sex, which is apparently more pungent than just angry/scared skunk. This is the second time in as many days that these nympho skunks have done the nasty near my house, and I really wish they'd get a room somewhere else. The stink is giving me a headache.

i feel: nauseated nauseated

they are taking a cue from the trees (trees are having sex in the air, and i have allergies!)

It's almost gone, and the window is shut in this room. I was going to go into the next room to sew, but now.. maybe I'll wait a bit. :-)

Yuck. I wonder what scent would drive them away ("oops, someone else's room!") -- whatever it is, it's got to smell better than skunk sex!

Eh, I figure "skunk rut" will be over soon. Part of the problem is that since they outlawed trapping in MA, there has been a population explosion in the skunk community, and they threaten to overrun urban areas. When I lived in Worcester, Wolfie and I would sometimes walk about half a mile to a little bar on Kelly Square. Walking home one night, we counted 7 dead, road-killed skunks, and this is within throwing distance of Rte 290, in a very built-up residential area.
