Live and Let Live?..

..I DON'T freakin' think so!!..

Sadly,..the little fellow met with a tragic tennis shoe accident shortly after this video was filmed.

Doralong- Truly,he could've set up shop on some whole other side of the room,and we'd have gotten along just fine.

Did you do a ninja tennis shoe backflip to squish your enemy?

This sort of has a "seven-at-a-blow" tone to it doesn't it? You going to get a belt made the way Hop-o-My-Thumb did?

Actually I would have done the same thing.

Sage- I just about did a backflip outta bed when I woke up and saw him this morning..The coup de gras was somewhat less dramatic.

Willym- Now I must Google 'Hop-O-MY-Thumb'..I can guarantee you this however,..there ain't enough left of him to to make a watchband,let alone a belt.

OMG....I would have been out of the house in a flash...and screaming for Steve to kill that thing. So, Steve brings a mucky muck home for dinner Tuesday night. They are still downstairs talking and looking around, I am going up stairs. What is on the damn ceiling right over the dinner table but a HUGE bark beetle......broom, caught in the straw, whacked the straw over the toilet, off to Long Beach. Insect nerve...sheesh!

How big was it? I think I would have just watched.

Rosie- No kidding..Over the dinner table..Over the bed.
That's just rude!

Lost- He was about the size of a quarter.
You know,it looks like he's crawling on the ceiling in the video,but he's hanging upside-down from his newly costructed web.
No way am I lettin' this guy homestead over my face like the Sword of Damocles while I sleep!

I told you you'd always have spiders. Yikes!

that little guy probably has thousands of relatives. you may have started the great american spider riot of '09.

i usually scoop them up and put them outside..they eat other bugs that are peskier than they are..but then if the mood strikes me i will beat the fucker to death.

Oh, HELLO NO! Right about your bed? Smash with impunity.

Thinker- HA!..I was totally thinking that when I handed him his eviction notice..

Billy P.- I have to string miles of barbed wire,..bells attached,..around the perimeter.

Yellerdawg- I usually let them go about their bi'ness of clearing my space of those pesky flies and such..
I've even been known to let loose the seasonal Praying Mantis inside the premises to do that thing they do so well.
My personal space is relatively small,but it has it's limits.

Rainey..Dear Rainey- EXACTLY!!..
I rest my case.

Ewww, I would so totally kill that thing! Well, actually I'd scream and run away like a little girl and make Iwanski kill it. I don't like bugs so much. :)

At 9:12 PM , Blogger Sling said...

Miss HP- In my defense,I screamed and ran away like a man!..see the difference?

I cant' say I am much bothered by spiders. Good thing too, since my house seems to be alive with the things.

On the other hand I probably would have gotten out the broom if I saw one setting up housekeeping directly over the bed.
