    I just saw a big one in the kitchen floor,

    then I look away, when I look back she was gone! I just wish my cat would eat it.

    Oh mister spider. Why must you torment me so?

    Why must you manipulate my family into thinking that a 5 year old girl miraculously snuck into our house and started screaming, when obviously twas I who committed the act? Oh mister spider, what have I done to deserve this? :P

    Just had a spider crawling on me again.

    ...and you'd think with as many spiders as I've had crawling on me in my life that I'd be less afraid of them by now.

    I used to like spiders,

    and i used to call them my fuzzy little friends. Until one day my sister tried to kill one. I picked it up, and it bit me. I cursed and through it down than stomped it hard.

    Had a lovely experience just a minute ago.

    ... Laying in bed, massive spider crawls along the floor, I'm too slow to catch it, runs under bed, then it runs out from under the bed, I throw a tray on it, I stamp on the tray. The end.

    I have arachnophobia big time.

    It's so bad I get dizzy and faint when I see one. I never even killed one because I can't make myself get that close.

    They are the most horrifying creatures on the

    planet. I wish they would all move to the Amazon or something or just stay out of my house. I'm grateful I don't live in an area with tarantulas. They would probably literally give me nightmares if i found one in my room.
