Actually the MusicianDad thing isn't a bad idea... You could do the thread titles with random absurd stuff about members kinda like the banned titles of AFDs....

This is a tree on fire with love, but it's still scary since most people think love only looks like one thing instead of the whole world. *

Yippee! Thread title number two of mine! And yet, I STILL fell for it!

How about this one:

DS is 9 years old but still weighs 43 pounds. Should I buy a Radian to RF him a bit longer?

Come see my new tattoo! You will never believe where I got it! *PICS INCLUDED!*

WWYD? Neighbor is breeding poisonous snakes next door. Should I ask her to use cages for them?

Formerly single Mama to the zaniest boy on the block, born on my birthday on 3/28/07. Soon to be Mama to a new little and can't wait to bfinfant.gif and femalesling.GIF and familybed1.gif again!

As you all are demanding a pic of a big hairy spider in a bed, I'm going to dig mine up. I have a TON of spiders in my house as all my neighbors spray so the poor things come hide out here for safety. I don't mind much as long as they stay out of my hair, literally, but we often have them dropping down to visit midway through the night. During summer I found a big guy in my bed one night and took a pic next to a spoon to show size.

Just to let you know, the butt of the spider was as big as the spoon part. That is how big they get around our house.

I believe those are called tarantulas.

I thought it was a house spider on steroids. It actually had the gall to rear up on its hind legs when I disturbed it. I didn't appreciate that at all.

I really hate the ones that jump though. My DH does not deal with spiders at all so I always get to transport them outside. Fun times.

That is why bugs don't get to stay alive in my house. I have this deep-seeded fear of bugs flying at my face. My DH makes fun of me, but I'm serious, it terrifies me!

Anyone else ever have to deal with cave crickets? They look like giant spiders, but they are crickets and jump like crickets. We USED to have them in our basement. I was having none of that.

I will never sleep again.

ETA: I had a friend in college (community college - office training - just so I don't confuse those who have read my rants about education) who had a large, hairy spider land on him one morning. Sounds like a bad way to start the day, right? But, that's not so bad.

The bad part is that it landed on him, because it was crawling across the shower head when he turned on the shower. So, he was naked...and it was freaked out, so it ran all over him. He told me about it when he got to school - late - and he looked vaguely ill for a couple of hours. I heard that story over 20 years ago, and I still shudder when I think of it.

I would have moved. Not just out of the bed, to a new house.

I picked her up and relocated her outside. I can't bring myself to kill a spider, but i also don't feel the need to spend my nights snuggling with one.

Of course, my dad was an entomologist while I was growing up- specializing in spiders, and we had so many spiders around that I became somewhat oblivious to the things. My husband will leave the room if he finds one in it, and I have to go in to remove them- his solution is to kill them.

I kill them, too. I'd rather relocate them, but the freak me out so badly that I can't even bring myself to try to trap them, because they might get loose and crawl on me before I get a lid on them. If I kill them by vacuum, i have to use the long tool, too...

It's stupid, irrational and annoying. I thought spiders were way cool until I was about 12-14, and don't evan know why my view of them changed.

Looks kinda like a wolf spider.

We get them around here and they get massive here.

Not entirely irrational... Here in good ol' BC we do have some poisonous spiders that are best to be avoided. Like black widows....

Oh come on! I thought I could look forward to escaping potentially venomous things when I moved there in a couple months... I'm already down one radial nerve as a result of a rattlesnake bite....

What else bites out there?

We apparently have both black widows and brown recluses, but I don't know anybody irl who has ever seen one locally (and my family has been here for about 100 years). There are also rattlesnakes in BC, but not in the Lower Mainland (Metro Vancouver area).

Where are you moving to?

It's totally irrational. Most of the ones I've seen - and freaked out over - are very obviously plain old garden spiders. I'll let myself off the hook on freaking out over the one that got behind the lens on my glasses, but I'm otherwise totally irrational.
