    Big Flat Crab Spider

     Last night whilst on EP I noticed in the corner of my eye a huge spider.  Im real scared of them and not even sure if its one of those that spit acid,but guess what Im so addicted to EP now (in only one week!), I decided to ignore it.  That means its still here...

    His name is Louis, and he's the "keep to

    himself" sort. I give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he is prone to social anxiety as opposed to snobbery. I think that's what decent neighbours ought to do. Besides, I don't want to risk the potential for awkward encounters (we tend to run in to each other often...

    Quite a Few Through the Years

    Spiders have never bothered me. I've even named a few of them. I've lived in old houses and spiders seem to be especially attracted to them. I hate killing things. Except mosquitos. But spiders are safe. When I was little someone (my grandmother, I think) told me spiders in...

    There's Usually A Few Around

    Other than 2 or 3 brown recluses, which I killed,I let them be.They keep the bugs down,and as long as they stay out of the way,no problem.Had to put Herbie the wolf spider out of the kitchen though,he was a little too much for the gf.

    Legacy of the Spider

    I have quite a talent for rambling on about things which are irrelevant, unimportant and that don't matter. So, this seems good for me. :-P In my old house, years ago when I was younger, there was a giant spider, which I only saw once or twice. It was sort of like the...

    This Is What Happens

    Whenever there is a spider in my room i want to kill it, but I don't want to be too close to it. What I do is I throw something at it from far away, preferably a book. But if the spider id an inch or larger than I run out of my room and cry to my parents and they kill it.

    Does anyone know what kind of spider this is? It was pretty small. His leg span would probably cover a penny, if that. I live in Los Angeles, if that helps.
