Die arachnid die

I hate spiders. Largely because they are evil like fu…. breath in breath out … calm.
That and because I am arachnophobic. Badly.
I once woke up to find a spider the size of my hand on the wall above my bed. And that was just the body. With the legs it was much bigger. I went and woke my dad up, told him to deal with it. He rolled up a mat and hit it and then sprayed it with killer death insect spray and then threw it outside. I still slept in a different room that night.
I was 17.
I hate spiders.
Now I’m off to Alcatraz. I’ll let you know if their are any spiders.
[Update] – I couldn’t get to Alcatraz. I suspect these means the spiders know I’m onto them. I’ll try again tomorrow.
[Update2] – I got to “The Rock ” in the end. No spiders that I could see (brilliant got to live islands) but I did get sunburnt. I am going to blame the spiders for that.

  1. Heh. You wet pansy.
    I find that a lot of peoples’ problem with spiders is their athleticism. Perhaps it would help if you thought of them as miniature horses instead.

  2. Shut up, Pete, you bully. As a fellow arachnaphobe, I feel Adrian’s pain. But to tell you more would spoil a future post. Just be assured that I feel it. Evil like fu is damn right.

  3. But they are the destroyers of flies, so there exists an uneasy peace between us here in Cambridge.

  4. I see them more as miniature pockets of pure evil sucking up all that is good.
    It’s a little known fact that Georgie Bush is actually a spider.

  5. Arachnaphobia is a totally illogical and irrational fear that is likely to be a psychological manifestation of deep rooted mental trauma or insecurity.
    Unless you are an arachnaphobe in which case spiders are the multi-legged, vampiric, web spinning spawn of satan and to be afraid of them is perfectly rational.
    Little b*st*rds!

  6. Damn right that’s what arachnaphobia is, and if I had time right now, I’d tell you all about the specific incident that turned my general jumpiness about insects into a nauseating fear.
    Although I do think that having a specific spider-related incident as a root cause makes the whole thing a lot less irrational, and therefore not a phobia.

  7. There is nothing illogical or irrational about hating the little fu evil bastards.
