Big fat hairy things

They say it's the good girls that keep the diaries; the bad girls never have the time. Ah...but this isn't a diary...it's a blog *lol*.

And so much for me thinking no one would read this...over 100 views as I write. Why??? What on earth would possess people who don't know me to read? It's a bit like Big Brother, I think *lol*. We are all voyuers at heart.

No witty words today...just fear. Must speak of my traumatic and very damaging experience last night.I have a large open fire in my house. Not practical but then I never was. Sorely miss not having a man to bring the wood in and as I am a wimp, I only ever bring enough in for one night.

So got the kids to help yesterday afternoon and we made many a journey to the woodpile and back. I was lighting the fire and my daughter stopped me and said she thought I had something in my hair, which was out and everywhere as usual. She looked for me but couldn't see anything. About an hour later, I felt something tickling my head... shook my hair but nothing was there. Put it down to imagination.

Ate dinner, read with kids, usual routine. Every now and again felt the urge to have a scratch at my hair. Decided to have a bath and was standing in front of mirror, naked (yes, hold that thought...have to give my avid readers some spice) and was putting my hair up so as not to get wet. Difficult task this. Flicking and twisting hair when all of a sudden an enormous spider...the size of my hand...landed on my right breast, ran across and down my stomach and onto the bathroom vanity unit. A big huntsman spider, totally harmless but very hairy and extremely unattractive.

He is still sitting up in the corner of the bathroom ceiling, gloating. I cannot use the fly spray because he might fall down and get me you see. He'll have to stay up there until I can find someone who will stop laughing long enough to help. Have shut the door of my bathroom (and no, I don't believe placing a towel at the door and floor gap excessive)and although I checked on him a couple of times last night, he is on the move and I think it is best we do not meet again.

I know few will have sympathy for me and suspect if here, many would probably have trampled me in the rush to get out of the bathroom first... but I am still feeling very fragile and needed to share with someone. Hate spiders.

UPDATE

Us little girls hold onto our phobias so staunchly because spiders ARE scary and hairy and crawl all over you. This boy was BIG. Is big. Blighter has left my bathroom and I can't find him. Spent a considerable portion of my day timidly lifting items up around my bedroom, checking behind paintings and ruffling curtains. Even changed my bedsheets. I fear he has taken up squatters rights. I know he is in there somewhere...waiting...lurking. Hate spiders.

i think fear of spiders is natural for people...kind of like snakes and sharks...and, um, death...

when i see spiders, i try to catch them and put them outside...kind of like a relocation program...but i don't bat an eyelash about killing a black widow...those things scare the fuck out of me...i've only ever seen 2 in real life, and i killed them both...

my suggestion to you...i know it sounds goofy...but hairspray works wonders...you do quick bursts of spray...the spider eventually stops moving...then you can either kill it then...or take it outside and kill it...

the hairspray works on any little insect or arachnid that travels at the speed of sound...you know those suckers can move quick...just slow them down first...

ick, now my head and neck feel creepy crawly...

At my place, I have what I like to call "Zero Bug Tolerance".

It means that all polite bugs of any kind are free to scurry anywhere they want outside my dwelling, in the yard, in the trees, etc.

However, the moment they breach the boundaries of my dwelling, including the attic, I will make sure they die, using any means necessary.

Ants and roaches are the only two exceptions to the yard rule because eventually they will find their way into my dwelling, meaning they're not polite, so they get snuffed when I see them. Wasps are also impolite. Gone.

Let me drive. I like the view

Hey I presume you must be on the Australasian continent then (dont think huntsmen are anywhere else are they?

We have Wetas, and I can tell you you would FREAK!!!! At the size of these mommas. I once was out in the bush and felt what I thought was a twig breaking off a tree and falling down the hood of my jacket. Well ten minutes later I said to my mate (do twigs climb?)

I pulled every stitch of clothing off (I mean in like 5 seconds)and there it was on the singlet (a good 8inches long and 5-6 inches leg span)bbbbrrrrrrrrrrrr. I have it as a paperwieght in my office as a rememberence that I won

Well Sall, I assure you that I would have screamed like a girl and sat in the corner of the room with my shot gun the rest of the night...

Spiders play an important role in the ecosystem. Perhaps he is there to guard you from all sorts of pests and nastier bugs. I just put them back outside, and let them do what nature intended them to do, which isn't to bother us, even though we have a natural tendency to fear them. To be honest, it isn't spiders that the human race needs to fear...it's politicians! If they only made a spray to get rid of them, we'd live in a much happier world.

Ditto on plumpslut4fun's hair spray comment. Works great. Then you can gloat!
