Jebus! The Spiders!

I was on the phone to a friend today when I idly opened the bathroom door and saw this ENORMOUS spider, the size of a 75c piece in the bath! EWWRAGHEEEOW!!! Begorrah and hapotchikin, it gave me the heebie jeebies.

I'm somewhat ashamed to say that my solution was to fill the largest container I could find with water and squemishly chase the spider around the bath (from a terrified distance) until I washed him down the plughole.

Only somewhat, because there appears to be a co-ordinated strategy here. Early today (before the petrifiying bathtub experience) I found another, smaller, 5-cent-piece spider LURKING ON MY CHAIR RIGHT WHERE I REST MY HAND!!! I squished that one with a Resene test-pot and spent the next hour freaking out every time I touched the chair by accident, because of the spider juice.

Simply by the power of suggestion, my finger burnt and itched where it had touched the chair.


Spiders! I'm going to have nightmares tonight.

Haven't you seen spider man? maybe the spider-juice will give you amazing spider powers!

A 75c piece is what you get when you hysterically add together the sizes of a 50, 20 and 5-cent piece. Of course.

I think if I developed spider-like powers I'd go insane from fear.

... actually, now I don't feel so bad about washing and squishing the two I saw yesterday. They were probably suicidal reincarnated arachniphobes.
