Mari vs. The Giant Spider

I hate spiders. I hate 'em. They creep me out. I had an experience when I was a kid with one, and I never got over it. I didn't get bit, but it scared me. It was in my hair!

And today, it all came back to me.

I swear the damn thing was just like the one I found a picture of. It is the Giant house spider. Yep, that looks like it. And it was on my ceiling. Of course, I have only me to kill the damn thing as it scurried across the ceiling. *shudder*

I found some bug poison and started squirting it. Thing moved fast and for the first time in a loooong time, I screamed--because it was running toward me.

It fell (almost on me!) and I screamed again as it scurried across the floor. Took me a minute to go after it with my squirter. I know I got it, but it moved so fast, I lost it.

You know, I've seen people criticize Steve Gonsalves from Ghost Hunters because he doesn't like spiders. I am here to tell you, I am with him all the way. I guess if I go on a ghost hunt I better warn the guys from ALPHA Ghost Team because...

I hate spiders.

Ghosts don't scare me, but spiders definitely do.

This post is a "re-post" from my blog at Feel free to come on over and read more about my adventures and books! My latest release from Resplendence Publishing is The Dark Knight.

And speaking of my ghost guys, if you live in the Tallahassee, Florida area, they are planning several events in the up coming months. Check out their site for details! They will be at Bird's Aphrodisiac Oyster Bar this upcoming Friday (8/28/2009) along with the paranormal band Fantome (who really rock!)

According to our friend who own a extermination company, you cant kill a spider with the sprays.

You could save yourself money and anxiety--keep a can of cheap hair spray on hand--aerosol kind. Two/three squirts and their legs get all sruck together then you can crush them, sweep them up and get them out.

I buy a can at spring and it usually lasts all year.

hope you got him!

I did get him, actually. I found him dead when I vacuumed.
