I set up the first of three planned gnat/fruit-fly traps in my kitchen, and once it was done, the bugs all went quiet. I watched "Star Trek Into Darkness" in my lightless studio; I'd have seen a random insect, silhouetted against my monitor, had it flown across my line of sight. But—nada. No critters at all. It's almost as if they understood that the game, inside my apartment, had fundamentally changed, now that I've begun using traps.

In other news: the smell of apple vinegar (Koreans call it "apple vinegar," sagwa-shikcho, not "apple-cider vinegar") isn't as bad as I thought it would be.
