That's what I was wondering. Isn't OUR Poohbear terrified of spiders?

This week one of my cousins took it upon herself to organize a gathering for just the cousins, something I hadn't expected to happen. She gave us three dates and the one where most cousins can come will be the date of the gathering. We'll be going to restaurant in the forest/national park we always went to with our grandparents, and where we scattered my grandmother's ashes.

The date most people can come is September 30. I've already let them know that I'm away on vacation that week. They concluded that because of that I CAN'T come. Which is not true. I'm vacationing in the same national park, a 15-20 bike ride from the restaurant. It's more of a case that I won't come. Especially not when I'm on vacation, it would ruin my week with anxiety. But they don't have to know that. I'm not like a certain cousin.

Is it bad that it already makes me happy to think of not having to go through not only my social anxiety thing but also my family anxiety thing. I'll have a nice relaxing week, and Sunday, I can introvert to my heart's content, read, paint, sketch, game, whatever I want.

The real Poohbear died of liver failure and was replaced with a clone.

Maybe it's because of my new super powers?

Or all those Lucas videos posted in another thread?

Worry not of the spider, but of the spider's prey.

All this talk of spiders... I had to kill a fisher spider that was trying to gain entry into the house yesterday. This particular fella was about 3 inches wide. They are in the wolf spider family, are aggressive, and can be lethal to small pets. As we are kitten-readying the house, this guy was an absolute no-go.

EXACTLY like Hairy Potter! You guys remember, when we first arrived here at this new place, about 10 years back and we had Quentin Tarantoola and Hairy Potter, the tarantulas? And Hairy got into a p*ssing contest with Mr. Hitch, over ownership of the garage, and charged at Mr. H? Front legs up in the air?

HILARIOUS. Mr. H (who's been a test pilot in his life, not your normal chicken, mind you) jumped about 2 feet. I wish I had video!!!

Understandable ... large members of the wolf spider family can be quite aggressive ... and scary!

Herb is a modest 1 cm in size and unlike most of his relatives, has shown no tendency to bite me ...

Reading Slush Pile Hell, a blog by a literary agent giving selected samples of stuff in queries from authors, and the agent's reaction to them.

Hilarious.

SlushPileHell is one of my all-time fave reading experiences. SlushPileHell, CakeWrecks, NotAlwaysRight and ClientsFromHell are all rave favorites of mine.

ETA: As near as I can tell, he hasn't added to it in about 4-5 years, though.

I've gotten a new jewelry tool today; a set of crimping pliers. I still have an hour or so before dinner so I think I'm going to get creative and try out my new pliers.
