    :eek::eek::eek: So, I am sutting here, reclined, and enjoying some middle of the night a-z reading, when all of a sudden, the largest spider I have ever seen in my 11 years in this state crawled up on me to say hello.

    I hate spiders.

    One of my favorite quotes in the HP movies is when Ron says" Why does it have to be spiders? Why can't it be follow the butterflies?:lol:

    Anyways, I promptly grabbed the first thing I could (which happened to be a dog toy) and I smacked the thing numerous times and sent him to spider heaven. My husband is pretty sure it was a daddy long legs. I do not mind them outside, as I know the good they do in keeping other bug and spider counts down, but I do not want them in my house, and I definitely do not want them on me. My Dh spread his legs out on a paper towel and he had the leg span of at least my 7 year old DD's hand.

    I am so glad I did not throw my laptop across the room.

    I will now commence with the reading of topics on a to z, and hopefully there will be no more creepy crawlies tonight. :unsure:

    The worst part is now I cannot wind down. I feel like they are sitting in wait to crawl on me when I try to go to sleep. I feel like I have ingested two pots of coffee. UGH!

    I hate spiders, too, but I won't kill them. I terrifying defy death (exaggerating on purpose) to take them outside.

    I just tried to add a photo of a large spider I found on a roll of toilet paper, but I can't figure out how to add photos. I know you will be disappointed. I also found a black widow spider under my garbage can. That I did kill.

    I had a "pet" spider outside my classroom window last fall. The kids were fascinated with her. Moms, not so much. She disappeared 1 day never to return.

    Kind of like Charlotte's babies from "Charlotte's Web." :)

    I don't like spiders. We have pest control come spray our house often. We live on a river so we have lots of creepy-crawlies. Yuck!

    I hate scorpions even more than I hate spiders. I've killed at least ten this year. I live out in the country during s drought so there's no way to not ever see them, but I'd love to never see one again.

    There was a huge spider that had a web outside my door and I called her Charlotte and missed her when she either died or moved on. But that was outside...where bugs and spiders and snakes and all sorts of other critters belong!
