...and I have proof.

After I got home from Madison this afternoon, after I finished my dinner, I went downstairs to shoot some pool.

And I tripped over this:

Luckily, I seem to have killed it by tripping over it. Otherwise I'd have had to move out of my house.

I dropped the pool ball on it just in case.

Yep, it's dead.

Now I have to find my shovel so I can dispose of the thing.

See?!?!? I told you that the house that burned down contained nuclear waste! That's abt how big the one I had to tackle was. Took 3 cans of raid, a baseball bat, and a backhoe to remove that thing from your house. Generally I'm not freaked out by spiders, but when theyre big enough to fight back, I'm definitely a little leary.



Okay I grew up in IN. and we never had any bugs/spiders that big? did you raise it? - sleep with one eye open lol

My sister's theory (see above comment) is that the neighboring house, when it burned down, made these gigantic radioactive spiders homeless. That's why they're showing up at my house all of a sudden.

I found one of those in my old house and trapped it in a jar to have it looked at by a "pest specialist" and was told it was a wolf spider. I was wanting to know if it was poisonous or not and it was not. GROSS but not poisonous!! Eeeuuuuuwww!!!

If it's big enough to eat you then it doesn't matter if it's poisonous or not.

I find myself coming to your blog more and more often to the point where my visits are almost daily now!

Which must suck for you because I only seem to update weekly.
