    Not Scared

    Some people point-out how it is odd that I don't mind spiders, because, they are a very common phobia. I do "make-up for it" though, with an odd fear of worms. =S But, spiders are cool.

    Wishes With Legs

    I read a book recently where spiders were keepers of stories. They weave tales into their webs and if you whisper your wish to them it will come true. It changed my perspective of them. Instead of being something I feared and called my dad to swat, I pick them up on sheets of...

    When I was a junior in High School,

    I was in the Arthur Miller play "A View From the Bridge." My character, Eddie Carbone, was a longshorman. In the opening scene, he is having dinner with his wife and niece, and as they are eating he talks about his day on the docks, unloading crates of bananas that were crawling...

    ...as Long As They Stay Away From Me!

    I don't mind if there's spiders in my house, but I just don't want to be in close contact with them. *shudders* I recently read a study that said that if there's spiders in your house there's no harmful mold in your house. So if you've had spiders in your house and they suddenly...

    Admirable Little Creatures

    Granted--I do not like when spiders crawl on me uninvited, or come into my close personal space. That's a bit too creepy for me. But aside from that, I honestly don't mind spiders. I have a small fear of them that could be instinctive, but they don't terrify me or fill me with...

    They Are Amazing

    I used to play with Daddy Long-Leg spiders when I was a child. I'd take a blade of grass or a small stick to shake the Wolf spiders web just so I could have a look at it's reaction. The Garden spider was my favorite. I never messed with them. I was fascinated by their webs...

    Fascinating Creatures

    I am aware of the ones to respect and avoid, but otherwise get right up close and watch them do their spidery things.

    I Like Spiders

    Not crawling on me or anything but the most fascinating TV program I have ever seen was a documentary on spiders. When I was 18, there was a red-leg tarantula at the pet store on the corner by my house that I wanted to buy but I was broke.
