Don't you just love coming to my blog and seeing THIS in your face? These guys like to hang out in my room every night. It's pretty fun.
Sorry, my story teller seems to be broken these days. I'm having a hard time making time, motivation, and computer power happen all at the same time to get some stories up. Camel rescues, desert rivers, sleepovers, holidays, funny kid limericks... for now, let me just say that along with the various insect plagues after even the littlest bit of rain come lots and lots of hunting spiders. Big ones. In my bedroom. I think they're technically not spiders, but they look like spiders, so that's good enough (or bad enough?) for me. Super huge and lightning fast, they are really really creepy. And, oh yeah, they jump, as I discovered after trying to take this one's photo while it was on my door holding a large cockroach in it's jaws. GAK! It jumped off the door towards me and I may or may not have done a little heebie jeebie dance, complete with squeals. It then ran back up on my door, and into the crack between the door and the frame. I slowly closed the door enought to kill it, and it made the most horrifying CRUNCH! Bleurgh!!!!
Once I was convinced it was dead, I scooped it up (it's front legs apparently stick straight up when it gets crushed?) for a photo session. Aren't you glad I did that???
