This is another quick post about something I’ve become almost paranoid about.
Spiders. Everywhere. HUGE honkin’ spiders with multi-colored bodies splayed in bushes, hanging over walkways, strung on giant webs five feet across between trees and street lamps.
(yeah, this is a close up of the featured picture. They build webs between buildings and power lines. I mean, what the hell?)
I swear I see a dozen of these things everyday, unless I stay inside, where there are only mosquitoes, beetles, and wolf spiders. O.O
(I walked through one of these webs on accident while I was hiking today…luckily no one was home; I completely freaked out though. Gen thought it was hilarious, of course)
Honestly, I have never gone somewhere with so many bugs in my life. There are bees and wasps and flies, too, but the things that really bug me (heh) are the HUGE spiders. I don’t know if they’re poisonous and frankly I’m too afraid to ask because if they are, I’ll never sleep again. O.O
They’re about an inch and a half across with black and yellow bodies and super long creepy legs. I’m not usually afraid of spiders, but if one falls on me I’m going to scream and throw it at whichever friend is closest. If you bump one of their webs, they scurry to the place you bumped within like half a second. It’s freaking terrifying.
