And he's HUGE! I'm telling you!
And fast! I have the Speedy Gonzales of spiders living IN MY HOUSE!
I'm pretty sure it's a Wolf Spider.
It waits until JUST I'm here, I swear. No one else has seen it. But I'm not crazy--it's here! Watching. Waiting. He knows I'm paralyzed by him when he runs out from under the furniture.
I've had lots of good advice on how to kill him.
Hairspray. Apparently Aquanet renders spiders not only dead but stiff enough for display!
Capture and set free. Ha! As if I could come anywhere near enough to HANDLE this thing!?
Bug spray. Sure. Great idea. Except when I approach it, it rears up and practically hisses at me!
Supersonic bug machines. Okay. If i get to wear them as body armor!
I think I'll borrow an anvil from Wylie Coyote or something.
Which would help with THIS spider, but to add to my list of useless information I didn't ever need to know, according to Law and Order last night, "Wherever you are in the world, you are never more than six feet away from a spider."
Michael went on a bug hunt and ransacked the whole house last night. No spider. But I SAW it! I did! He said he was going to hook up a "cricket trap" (you know, like you do to catch bunnies?) They went out cricket hunting but didn't catch one last night.
They left me alone again with it today and I'm sure the spider knows it. I stayed up in my room again, but I was totally paranoid it came up here in the night.
I wish they couldn't walk on walls.
If Michael doesn't present me with a spider corpse soon... I don't care if we just unpacked... I'm moving!
