Hi there girls and boys! Yes its an update! Who would have thunk it? A POST! After all this time and here I am making a post, but wait there is more! I have a toon to boot. Wow it must be your lucky day it’s a double whammy happy blog experience. (That word experience! What synonyms can one use instead of EXPERIENCE? Come on peeps help me out here and leave some of your ideas in a comment.)
Well here I am. As most have you know, I have relocated to the sunny back water of
No really come on guys, where are all the drunk teenaged girls? Where the hell are all the friendly people? Well I am yet to find a friendly local. I am yet to have the ‘moves’ put on me by some sobriety challenged young bikini wearing babe. Ah I suppose thats the price one must pay for being a middle aged long haired hippy with an expanding middle.
Oh hell middle aged! 31 next month. Sigh! Is that middle aged? If one of you decides to call me old I’ll… well it will be dire!
Anyway my visit to
Ok so here is the whole point to this rather pointless post is to tell you about this HUGE spider I found! Ok so it was like this gargantuan menace that decided that my maid was on the menu. I am not kidding when I say that insects here are huge! Which means that their predators are even huge…er? Its like the Lost World man. I am expecting a dinosaur to be chased across my lawn by pigmy gorilla men at any moment now. Anyway I digress (I like that word ‘digress’. Don’t you? Its very visceral sounding.)
My poor maid was been dragged out the door by this enormous hairy freak with way too many legs. Big hairy legs I tell you, horrible! And the spider had even hairier ones. Eww! Well I could not let her be taken to certain death; I mean the house was not even clean yet. So I grabbed the heaviest pan/pot thing I could find in the cupboard and a pickle jar. Well I will spare the details of blood curdling screams and the icky mess that resulted (I was scared ok. Who would blame me?) I eventually managed to get the behemoth into the jar. I tell you if I had not taken the pickles out first I would never have got him in there. Ok so now subdued and contained I did what any sane acrophobic ex-biologist would do. I kept him on my desk for three days. I called him Fred. He was my mascot while I massacred the evil denizens of Azeroth (yes yes WoW reference.) He did growl rather menacingly when I started killing the spiders in
Ok Boys and Girls sleep tight don’t let the hairy things with too many legs invade your dreams.
