24 December 2008


Earlier today I was sitting at this desk when a young (small) wolf spider came galloping across, did an "EEK, PEOPLE!" and hid behind the candle below my monitor. I moved the candle aside an inch and made a few reassuring (I hoped) noises at the spider, then ignored it while I continued whatever it was I was doing on the computer...

Half an hour later it charged across the desk and jumped off, still in "EEK! PEOPLE!" mode.

I like spiders. That's at least partially in response to Jim Stafford's 1970's song, I Don't Like Spiders and Snakes, because I've always had to be contradictory.
