There I go Thinkin' Again!

Spiders. I just flat out hate them. Oh, I know, I know - they eat the other bugs and keep them under control. Yada Yada Yada.


I hate them.

So, I was outside yesterday, having a cigarette and I see where a fairly substantial spider has decided to build a flippin' mansion in the corner of my house. Between the garage and the side door. Oh No. Oh no no no no no.

Not on my watch.

So....I immediately think of how I'm going to kill him. Shit. I don't have any hairspray. And seriously, best way to kill roaches and spiders. Hairspray. It freezes them and you can watch them slowly die. It rocks.

Anyway - no hairspray so I dash into the kitchen and grab some cleaning stuff with bleach. Bleach kills everything, that should be just fine.

I grab the broom on the way out and take aim. I sprayed that web down like crazy. It was actually kinda purty there, all glisteny and stuff. For about .1 seconds. Then, I took the broom to it. Demolished all signs of that thing.

Unfortunately, now, I can see exactly how dirty the siding of my house is. Unfortunately now I need to wash the side of my house.

All because of that damned spider.

But I had to laugh at the timing. I just spoke with Johnny_Oh the other evening and he had a similar experience when he moved into his new place. I think he cursed me. Damn you Johnny!!! ;-)

BTW - stop over at his place and congratulate him on his move. It's been a long time coming and from the sounds of it, he's in a MUCH better place.

Meanwhile, I've got this damned spot RIGHT by my door.........

OK - THIS is just flat out terrifying. Christina? Yeah, I'd probably move. I'm just sayin'....

Since it's the rainy season here I've got spiders coming out of the woodwork and I'm spraying constantly. [shudder] At least none of them have created cleaning emergencies... ;)

We have a portable power washer if you need one!

You know what works even better than hairspray?
Spray starch for laundry. Petrified web!

Usually spiders don't bug me, but I stomped on a frikkin' brown recluse at work last week. THOSE suckers freak the hell out of me. Something about getting bit and getting tissue necrosis I'm just not down with....
