Spiders in the Night

Our fabulous Spring has come to an end, just in time for my boss to come home, gone are the 70's, gone is the sunshine, all gone, back to cold and grey. Sigh. Well I got the peas, spinach and onions planted, they are just going to have to take their chances. The tomatoes are better off, being yet in little pots indoors. For myself, I am off to LA on Saturday for a week of plotting, planning and practice with Malena.

It looks as tho Mr Paul Score, my bandmate from Paul and Lorraine's amazing un-named band will be coming to Balti Con as well, hurrah! Yes, I will make him bring his guitar, and we will have some fun! He is attending a genetics conference the following weekend in the same area and decided he wanted to be in on the fun. ( not that geneticists don't have fun, I surely would not know, but I am sure they do )

Not much else going on, I have spent the day making sure all the little details are in place for my boss, talking with Malena and researching what to do if a Really Big Spider escapes from it's cage in the night, crawls into ones bed and bites you.

No special reason.

Love and Spiders in the Night,
Lorraine

What to do if a Really Big Spider bites you in the night?

First scream, I'd say.

Then become a were-spider and terrorize the neighbors. Obviously.

"spiderman, spiderman, does whatever a spider can..."
this is one of my deepest wishes of what "will happen if..." Lolo, make friends with CDV, you will love her.

Malena & Miles made me such a generous deal on their car & now i drive about the hollywood hills in style, i named him Ghosty, but my friend Justin said i should call him Bayer cause he looks like a tiny aspirin pill. My new car=SO DARLING! thank you so much, M&M!!!

36 days? ah! let's get crackin'! Young Paul will be more than welcome, can't wait to see what is up his sleeve...

A were spider? Ok, I am up for that, no problem here. A Really Big Were SPider. I like that.

The screaming sounds good too.

I loved driving that little car around LA Kitty, you are going to have such fun, and look so stylin doing it. It was actually the only one of thier cars I didn't feel scared driving around LA , I simply must learn! ( you have SUCH wacky drivers, says the country mouse )

LA drivers aren't so bad, but Boston freaks me out. I've been there but didn't drive. Chicago is nuts too, or maybe it's just noisier. Everyone honks. LA drivers seem quieter. Ultimately I prefer country driving conditions though: me and the cows.

KittyCat, what did you get? From the description it sounds like a Bug. I can't think of too many aspirin-shaped cars. :-D

Heh...having found scorpions in my house (my boss was bitten by one recently in his house), an eensy weensy spider is a friendly little thing. :-)

Driving conditions? Having driven in NYC, DC, Atlanta and this only-wish-it were-good-enough-to-be-called-hell place where I happen to be stuck, I can attest that I've never seen worse drivers than here. Unimagineable. On a beach with only 10k people, TWO people were killed in hit and runs this past week. Basically, however, you have to be careful because drivers will jump right out into the road in front of you! Nerve racking.

I was driving straight in a parking lot. The on-coming &%$# in the pickup decided he wanted to turn left in front of me. I kept going straight, then I realized he thought he should be able to turn and not yield the right-of-way. I went around the front of his truck and he said out the window, "Very nice, lady". GAAAAH!! And this is typical.

Actual article I just found which Actually does contain the sentence " Spiders do not lift the covers at night and crawl into bed to bite people as they are sleeping."

I am still laughing , and feel much better......

I loved driving in Chicago - every day a new challenge, tho I must admit since I moved to Michigan I don't miss the lights every block. Vanda, that sounds like a fun place to drive, good lord. Kitty your little pill car sounds so cute! So nice of Malena and Miles. Lorraine, that article is a comfort yet I still feel compelled to ck the sheets when I get in bed some nights. just in case a creepy crawley is there. (and I dont mean my husband)

There's a W.C. Fields movie (I think it was him) in which he wins the lottery and decides to devote his new-found riches to driving around colliding with bad drivers. That has often been a fantasy of mine. I have to take evasive manuvers so often driving around D.C. to prevent others from hitting me -- sometimes in that split second I'm tempted to let them hit me just to teach them a lesson. If I drove a clunker rather than my pretty little Prius I probably would.

Well, if it does get sassy and bite you, you can always do the nice little trick of biting it back. (This works even better if you're being radioactive at the time.)

A friend of mine once found a scorpion in his garage. Was petrified of the thing, but too caring to kill it - it became his pet, Mr. Stingy, until it died.

Spiders...*shudder*
I have an agreement with the spiders in my house, they come in my house and I see them-they're dead. I'm a total spider-weenie, and will search for the heaviest close object so as to only have to smash down once. It's dumb, because I'm fine with snakes, mice, rats, but if there's a big spider I'm a nervous wreck.

Kitty I'm trying to picture a car that looks like an aspirin..a citroen? Or a volvo?
