That is, a rather small spider. Anyone who's ever been around me when the topic of spiders comes up knows precisely how much I despise the things, as well as how much they terrify me at times. I'm currently alternating between pissed off and terrified. Evil little eight-legged freak.

The full story- I was taking a shower (note that my house is crappy and has a serious spider problem, btw), when I felt an odd stinging sensation on my hip. Weird pains aren't exactly odd for me, as I get odd cramps and stuff all the time, so I dismissed it as one of those odd things that just happen. A few minutes later- after brushing off the area with both hands, just in case- I see an itty bitty spider crawling between my fingers. I swear and scream a bit, and manage to get it off before hopping out of the shower with shampoo still in my hair. (I did manage to wash my hair out, but I'm still pissed that the little fucker interrupted my shower.)

Ack, you just gave me the heebie-jeebies! Once, in Massachusetts, I stepped out of the shower and grabbed the towel and I thought I saw something in front of me, but without my glasses I'm blind as a bat, so I leaned forward real slow-like, and it was a spider, hanging from a thread, at eye-level, from the vent fan. I had almost walked right into it WITH MY FACE.

Oh, and another time one got in my car. And then jumped AT MY FACE when I was at a stoplight. Threw my car into park and jumped out and did the Spiderdance on the median strip.

You know what the worst part is? I probably would've known that whatever caused that weird twinge at my hip was a spider... if I weren't blind as a bat without my glasses. Spiders are a hazard to showering glasses-wearers, seriously!

(And, oh, god, spiders in cars- there was this one time a few years ago where I was in the car with my mom, and there was this gigantic spider crawling around the floorboard, and it was jumping and stuff and we couldn't pull over yet.... ugh. I kept trying to kill it and failing.)
