Ack!

Cory and I were sitting here just now, minding our own business, when guess who came meandering jauntily across the living room rug?

This guy:


We captured it and took it into the kitchen to get a better look at it:


and then Cory dispatched it with some water and a little dish soap, and flushed it down the toilet.

The end!

He could have been harmless, but he sure looked like one of the bad ones.
Regardless, you don't want them in your house--- no matter how friendly they are.

My poor daughter is like bug bait. Every spider, flea, and mosquito in her vicinity will find her and decide try a taste. Poor thing. I'm not looking forward to bug season.

(incidentally, I found a sewer roach in the parking lot of my office very early the other morning. It's too darn early in the year for this crap. )

One time I went into my Nicaraguan host family's outhouse, and I saw a pica caballo (horse biter). Body...the size...of my fist! Eee! I ran away.

Eee is right! I wouldn't survive.

When I was in Australia, I saw a mouse spider. They're about as big as my hand with my fingers spread out. The farmer I was with just stepped on it like it was a little guy. Eww eww eww.

I got used to seeing tarantulas in my house every morning after awhile, but now I freak a bit just when I find little ones in my apartment. :) Yay for adaptation.

I lied. I thought they said mouse spider but now that I think about it, it was a huntsman.

My aunt had a sliding door to the back deck that opened up like supermarket doors do rather than the ones in houses here. There was a set of glass doors and a set of screen doors. A huntsman was between the two once and she took a hammer and whacked it and it stuck there on the glass part until she moved out, because it was back far enough that she couldn't reach it to scrape it off. :D
