Some people see Jesus in toast....I see Alaska on my arm.

I keep getting these giant bug bites on my arms and legs and back and face. I am not sure where they are coming from, and I can't help by scratch them because it's what I do. If I can pick at something, it shall be picked, I find it strangely therapeutic. However, the one on my arm is taking on strange state size and shape like proportions. I'd like you to meet: Alaska the Bug Bite. If you'll notice it even has the island chain rounding the corner of my "bicep."

I personally think this is a message from the bug bite gods that it is time to scratch Sarah Palin out of the political arena. And I don't mean scratch in the Mafia sense. Just Sayin.


  1. I'm a picker too and I'd pick Sarah Palin out for good!

  2. That is one huge bite...Hugs and kisses,sweetie

    ps: I am hosting a sweet necklace GIVEAWAY, later today :) ... Please, join in!

  3. I'm a picker as well and I get giant bites in the summer just like that when the mosquitoes are out. If it starts bleeding, then mission accomplished: no more itching, lol

  4. ooh - I hope that isn't a spider bite!!! siiiick.

  5. The Zadge - This is all I am saying!

    Diana - I know right, it takes up my whole arm!

    Emily Jane - This is what I say! And Inspector CLimate thinks I am crazy.

    Krysten - hah. Exactly. Toodles.

    Daisy - I don't think it is, I have them all over my body so unless a spider was just going to town...eek! A Spider on a mission!

  6. OW!! That looks like a pretty big bite!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and helping to make my SITS day a perfect one!

  7. Oh, that sounds painful! Get some itch cream stat!

  8. I was gonna guess bed bugs, but that is a really big bite. Spiders?

    I pick, too. I have no idea why. I don't want to, I just can't help it.

    So I have to avoid bites and stuff, too.

  9. I can see what your saying about Alaska on your arm...

    I'm a picker too - bug bites, pimples, I can't help myself!

  10. I've gotten spider bites like that. Sarah - I can't stop myself from reiterating the stupid things she says daily. I hate people that mangle the English language.

  11. Living in Taradise - I hope your SITS day was everything you wanted it to be...AND MORE.

    Teacher Girl - Not painful, mostly itchy.

    Tokenblogger - I have to admit I love that so many of the commenters are pickers too. it makes me feel better!

    Carrie - RIGHT? it's kind of soothing, in a strange way.

    Meg - hmm, spider bites seem to be a theme here...But why would I be the only one getting them?

  12. I see Alaska on your arm, too. I also am a picker [my poor sons]. You might be on to something with your "bug bite gods" message. Keep in contact with them... they're smart!

  13. LOL, how I don't miss those bug bites! Florida was very similar. I had the entire South Pacific island chain map going on one night. A nice crop of Alaskas too at various points.
    I never saw Jesus, just Benadryl, and the occasional purple monster walking across the ceiling.
