Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.

I wanted to share this conversation I had with Miss Lacey, regarding my spider post a couple days ago. See D'Arcy, I'm not the only one that hates spiders.


ME:      spiders!! hate em!! 
Trisha:  yeah, spiders are scary!
Trisha:  did you find him?

ME:      NO!! 
Trisha:  yeah, if I see them before they see me I am usually ok and will scoop them up on something and put them outside, but when it is a surprise I freak the hell out too

ME:      heh... they all hate me.
Trisha:  one time when I was in high school, I got home from school, opened the door going into the house from the garage
Trisha:  there was some kind of spider sitting on the floor just inside the door
Trisha:  as I tried to go in, the spider actually came towards me and put his 2 front legs up in the air like he was in some sort of attack position

ME:      oh god I thought you were going to tell me one dropped into your hair... ewwww
ME:      wow thats crazy!!
Trisha:  yeah, if that ever happened I can only hope I have blocked it out of my mind forever

Trisha:  this was scary enough..I have never been threatened by a spider like that before
Trisha:  it was really weird
Trisha:  and scary

Trisha:  man, the worst is when you are on a walk at night and walk through a web
Trisha:  and then you have no idea where the spider is

Trisha:  and you do the spider get the hell off of me dance
Trisha:  in GA we had big ass spiders that we called "writing spiders"
Trisha:  those were the biggest I ever saw in real life

ME:      yeah I hate that.  I live in the woods so every A.M. I do the spider dance when I walk from the garage to the car.  waving my arms around... lol

Trisha:  and then of course lots of daddy long legs
Trisha:  ok, I need to stop this conversation now or I will have nightmares!!
 
ME:      later!!
Trisha:  cya!

This is too funny. I think I am going to buy one of them pack of little plastic spiders and hide them all over your stuff.

LOL! Oh my..."writing spiders" are basically large garden spiders. If you were to get bit by them, you wouldn't die or anything. And although they can eat prey up to 200% their size, humans are still well above that number.

And daddy-long-legs are NOT spiders. They have 6 legs, which means they're nothing more than a little oblong body with really big legs...legs that can be ripped off one by one...mua ha HA!

Lacey is SUCH a girl...

Daddy Long Legs are TRUE spiders. They have EIGHT legs and belong to the family Pholcidae, in the suborder Araneomorphae.

Well...it depends which Daddy Long Legs you're talking about. I was talking about the "other" one, belonging to the family Opiliones (although I was mistaken: apparantly they do have 8 legs, but they are not "true" spiders)

I think its funny when people call Harvestmen "Daddy Long Leg Spiders". Because they are wrong on two accounts. It's not a Daddy Long Legs, and it's not a spider.
