    Did one run across YOUR Laptop screen while everything was dark?!
    Almost threw my comp across the room.
     
  4. No, but now I'm waiting for one to, or the dreaded "woken up by something crawling across my face..."

    Since moving to Texas from California, I've been on high alert. Whole 'nother insect ballgame out here!

    We have cicadas. Consider yourself lucky.
     
  7. Actually my first time in Texas years ago, I was in San Antonio when they were all waking up. Didn't see one the entire time until we were leaving. We stopped at a gas station I got beaned right in the face by one of the little bastards. Once I figured out what happened I put it in a plastic sleeve (it died on impact apparently) and still have its carcass to this day, weird lookin things...

    We've been having an explosion of baby spiders lately. All the egg pods hatched, and there are literally hundreds of these tiny yellow dots, baby spiders, clustered in bunches along web strands; and if you blow on them, or stomp your foot, they all scatter--and then rejoin.

  10. Yeah, I took a spiderlet outside a little while ago. I miss tarantulas. I have only seen a couple this past year and maybe one the year before. The place I camped through the summer of 2008 was loaded with them.
     
  11. Oh god, theres an Australian in the room!
    Insta-fail for all of us...
     
  12. Believe me, I was pure fail way before this thread. ;)
     
  13. The carrot in your avatar says differently...
    I thought it was a friggin baseball bat at first! :eek:
    Is that what you use to "handle" tarantulas?

    There was a spider in the shower and I freaked out and ran out of the shower with shampoo in my hair to go get my husband to kill it. Needless to say he was quite surprised to see me skid into the kitchen all drippy and soapy!
     
  15. Good thing he didn't have any company!!! lol!

    One night I was listening to music with earphones.I was reading a book and I was outside.

    I hear a sound,like something dropped from the ceiling.

    A SPIDER DROPPED from the ceiling right next to me and it was big enough to make a noise hearable through headphones playing And Justice For All.:eek:

    I would pet a spiter running across my laptop screen!
     
  17. Earlier today while doing some yardwork, I felt something crawling on the back of my neck. Something BIG. Reached back to swat it of and accidentaly almost grabbed it, but I got it. Turned around and looked and there was the most GIANT *** MOTHER****ING MONSTEROUS HORNET I'D EVER SEEN IN MY 23 YEARS OF EXISTENCE!
    After barely stifling a little girl scream I squashed it, and for the rest of the day was constantly feeling itchy crawlies all over.
    E'gads, now I'm not sleeping...

    Ok. Post this again, but really slow-motion. Just need to wrap my head around the visual.

    Wish it was horror movie sexy but alas it was not . I think my high-pitched wailing ruined it.

    There were TWO clusters of these freshly hatched baby spiders outside my door. I am okay with one single fully grown spider, but not okay with clusters of baby spiders.
