abso-tively pos-alutely pookin' TERRIFIED of the things.
have been since i was four. thats what happens when you let an impressionable young child watch an animal show and they show you a close up of spider's numerous eyes. Ok having so many legs is bad enough, but more than 2 eyes is totally not natural!!!!!! and the way they move is wrong. just wrong.
i seriously can't even stand the little ones. dont tell me theyre more scared of me than i am of them - the spider never runs away from me but i'm climbing up on my chair and squealing.
woe is me, apparantly the warm wet summer is gonna bring more of them here. as if there arent enough already!
