Ants Marching

I have ants…on my desk…at work.   I have this really great office, about 12×12, with lots of windows and beautiful views of the lake behind me:

If you notice in that picture, though, there is a tree right next to the window.  Its been raining a lot lately, and with the rains come ants.  I hypothesize that the ants are coming from the tree, through the window, and onto my desk.

I used to have a spider that I let live because in theory he was going to eat the ants.  I think he died, though, so now I’m in charge of making the ants disappear.  There must be a thousand of these things.

I know that’s not a really clear picture, but all the brown is ants.  Lots and lots of little ants.  I don’t have any food or anything in here, so they must like eating paper and pens.  Or maybe they’re wandering around trying to find something to snack on.  Interestingly enough, though, I have a zen garden (sand box with rocks) on my desk and they want nothing to do with it.  I would think that they would want to get in there and make tunnels and forts or whatever it is they do.

Well, that’s my excitement for the day.
