It started out so small and innocent

It was just a simple post on my blog that has turned into a nightmare (the good kind.)

Welcome to SpiderFest 2010.

So I just looked up

banana spiders.  Holy hokey pucks Batman!  I had no idea what they were and that was a much happier time in my life that I will always look back on fondly.  I will remember that as a time in my life I got more sleep and less nightmares!

Their webs can catch birds and mice....and probably small cats and children.  They are aggressive and not afraid of people. They have one of the most painful bites!! What the?....devils indeed!

Pumpkinrot used to be my friend :D

.......I just know there is a black widow or wolf spider on the way......cause you are all evil (and I do so like evil.)

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE Mr. Chicken's smiling happy blue spider.  It may have a lot of teeth and still scares me.....but it seems the least likely to kill me in my sleep.

BTW - Duh, that is not the real spider (I am not even touching a picture, no way! Do you really think I was was going to post something that terrifying? That picture is still scary though, the FQ hates bananas :D


  1. OK so I try to make a smart comment about this being (insert patronizing voice and fingers doing quotations marks) the worst spider EVAH!

    But crappy work computer wouldn't co-operate so I thought, well I just go look these things up. Why?!?! WHY do I read your blogs and then willingly go look these things up...WHYYYYYYY??

    well I found this...let's hope the link works...the usual disclaimers and warnings involves spiders and you involuntarily screaming GAH and then doing the heebie jeebie dance!!

    OK do you SEE that second photo...that's worse than I imagined the spider fest tree to be....And the worse part is, I'm wearing capri's that have ties so I keep feeling something on my leg...people at work think I've got a strange psychosis going on as I keep twitching about!!

    Yes I deserved all of it....

  2. frothie51 - that was not helpful at all. :D

    That second picture is the stuff of nightmares....if I walked into that. I would die....of fright, just like Miss Muffett.

    Speaking of her....I really need to get working on her.
