    I Hate You

    Urgh, that's what I want to say to EVERY spider who's EVER been in my house. It's just that, those creepy, nasty, hairy little things have NO business invading my home and scaring the hell outta me. Maybe I take this whole spider thing a little too personally, but whenever I see...

    Stop Right There!

    Big, fat spiders are the ones I hate the most. Although not tarantulas. They're so fat that I don't really see them as spiders. I would happily hold a tarantula all day long but don't like any other big spiders. Little ones I'm fine with. Medium ones I'm a bit iffy about but...

    Creeped Out

    A couple of weeks ago, I was just dropping off to sleep when I heard this rustling sort of sound.  Because of an incident with a spider when I was younger, I check the bed for spiders before I go to bed.  I look round the bed and under it so thought to myself that it...

    Creepy And Hairy

    I didn't used to be afraid of any spiders. I thought they were cute. As long as they followed the rules they were just fine with me. I actually like little spiders, they eat all the other bugs. A natural exterminator. I rarely kill the small ones. I talk to them. I tell them to...

    Ahhh Hell...

    ...let's be honest and say I am terrified of little spiders as well. And since we are admitting this fear I will admit I am even scared of baby spiders too.

    The One Thing That Terrifies Me the Most.

    My boyfriend was sleeping over one night and we were wrestling on my bed and then all of a sudden he tells me, "Baby don't move there's a spider on you." I stopped laughing immediately and told him not to even joke about that, but then I looked down and there...

    I saw a fishing spider in Canada once, under a fishing dock. He was so big, he was catching small minnows and eating them, it was awesome! I didn't sleep good on the island that night!

    Scuttling Down The Wall Towards Me...

     Big spiders always seem to put in an appearance at the most inconvenient moments. Sometimes when I'm in bed trying to get to sleep, I'll spot one scuttling down the wall towards me. By the time I've jumped out of bed and switched on the light, it's disappeared into the...
