OMG, SEND MORE BOOZE!!
Normally, I wouldn't be such a lush. But, I've had cause for indulging heavily in the sauce lately. First the arm, then the tetanus shot, and now THIS!
Alright... so, my blog was supposed to be all about nice, pretty stamped projects. But lately, I'm finding it more like assorted Animal Planet programming. Sorry girls... it will get back to stamping - I PROMISE!
Rabid Wolf Spider. Ever heard of one? No? Consider yourself LUCKY! I've seen one. Minutes ago. Too close for my liking. It was on the back porch - where the carcass of a large dead spider HAD been...which is now GONE! Alan said he thinks she ATE IT!! *GASP!* When you consider the size of this RABID spider, you'll wonder why it bothered with the dead spider when by the size of her, she could have eaten a cow!
Alan did caution me about these spiders when I first moved here. (Notice he waited until AFTER I got here...hmmm) He said they carry their babies on their back, so if you (EW!) step on them, the babies likely won't get squished, but instead will flee from the mother. Where you ask? Good question! Anywhere they can go! Which, is usually onto your SHOE!
*I feel faint*
After seeing the size of this RABID spider, no way, nuh uh, no sirrrreeeee would you EVER get me to squish it with my shoe! GROSS!
Keep in mind, if you don't like spiders (and I DON'T like spiders) you should view this with extreme CAUTION! It's SCARY!! When you look at the picture, you'll see a lot of reflective dots on its back. Those are the EYES of her babies! See the lighter colored spots? Those are the butts of the babies! EW! She must have at least 50 of them on her! AGH!!! CREEEEEEEPING ME OUT!!!
Oh ya, and I should mention...the white thing in the bottom right corner, is a packing peanut. It's at least 1" long... (but I didn't take time to measure it)
I told you, she's so big she could eat a cow!!
I'm so creeped out...
Alan said I better not have nightmares tonight.
Who's he kidding!?
I have to go take a shower.
I have the willies.
