    Trembling

    Spiders and I don't get along. We've never got along. They hate me and I hate them. Once I was on my bed doodling on a scrap of paper when I feel this tingling on my bare foot. It was a spider. A few days later I'm having a bath. I reached down for my towel, and the same spider...

    It's that time of year again.

    When it begins to turn to Autumn I notice there's spiders everywhere! My least favorite thing about my most favorite time of year. Anyone else notice this? There's one above me on the ceiling. egads.

    Hi. Remember when I posted about my neighbour

    having a big white spider on the crown of his roof? I want to say that there's the same kind of spider in the top corner of the window in the horticultural room where I work. I noticed it yesterday as I was getting out the greens mower.

    I have had a huge black spider crawl over my arm

    while I was lying in bed. Omg. All bets were off of coexisting. That spider had to die. He knew it, too, because he ran for his life. Too bad for him that I was faster.

    I think it'd be helpful

    if the cover picture for this group WASN'T a spider. I just saw one crawling on the ceiling above my bed. How do I sleep? It was big. I immediately ran to my parents- they went to bed awhile ago, but my mom came to kill it, and I'm too much in shock to have a panic attack.

    Oddly enough, I don't mind the big furry

    spiders like tarantulas. I even let one crawl on my face once and didn't get traumatized from it (I wouldn't do it again though, lol). It's the ugly, spiny ones with long legs that I'm really afraid of! *shudder*
