I know it's al scary and menacing and all, but I think spiders are super-cool in that Zen, purposeless way. Until they bite you, that is.

Oh, they're lovely and useful and good, but she's RIGHT IN MY FACE WHEN I GET THE MAIL. If she could just, like, move her web back a couple of feet...

Looks like a female writing spider.

Oooooh. If that thing bites you, you can beat up all the other Spider-Man clones.

Ah, we get ones similar to that all the time around here. I actually think they're rather pretty aside from the swollen-ness of the body. Just take a close look at it's back, the pattern is unique for each spider

Special snowflake spider!

I can't look at its back unless it turns around. It's positioned so I'd have to crawl between the hedge and the house.

I had one of those in front on my window. You need to kill it NOW before it starts having babies. D:

KILL IT WITH FIRE. What the hell species is it????

This is why I don't go into the everglades, except our spides are the size of your hand. I've almost walked into one of their webs twice in my life. TRAUMA.

Okay well I also don't go into the everglades because its hot and there are giant alligators and pythons. And apparently a skunk ape. But ALSO GIANT SPIDERS.

Oh, hey, yeah...those. We've got those all over our back yard. One keeps building a web across the stairs to our deck, like it's gonna snag Becky or me for a snack at some point. One's been building webs between the sliding glass doors from the kitchen out to the deck for the past week, and we finally rid of that one yesterday!

I hesitate to say "that's nothing" but...I killed one that crawled out from under the Reference desk at work yesterday that was almost 3 inches wide with its legs extended. *shudder*
