Some days are great, others are not...but no matter what twists and turns I encounter, you can be sure I'm going to write about it!

Public Spider Announcement (PSA)

Five spiders in two days....seriously.

I've lived in my apartment for two and a half years. In that time, I've been riddled with pests galore, and to add to the mix this week, I seem to be finding a spider lurking around every corner. Is this a sign I should move? The issues wouldn't be so difficult to deal with if I had someone to share my frustrations with. Particularly this week.

I feel as if the spiders have decided to target me. What did I ever do to them? It doesn't help that I don't like spiders at ALL. My only sidekick stands at just over two feet tall...and, lets be real, he is much more of a wuss than I am. He cowers every time a fly is in his vicinity.

It would be one thing if these spiders contributed around my place. If they dusted here, or put the dishes away there...but they don't. They just sit in the corner where the ceiling meets the wall and stare at me. Their beady eyes tell me "I'm going to bite you when you're sleeping, and then I'm going to crawl into your mouth." Can you understand why this hasn't been a lot of fun? How would you feel if you were taunted by creatures the size of dime?

So, my message to spiders is simple. Stay out of my place, and you won't be introduced to my lethal paper towel while listening to me screech in disgust, only to end in a swift run to my trash. Thanks.


  1. It's the time of year. They're fleeing for warmth. Little bastards.

    I used to live in a basement apartment with the scariest bugs EVER! It was awful and when I moved out it was a very happy day.

  2. Oh god I hate spiders....I know exactly where you're coming from.
    I can offer one solution for killing: a Swiffer. Reaches everywhere, flat surface so they can't scuttle away, you don't have to get close, and you can just take the bottom little wipe off to dispose of the carcass. Has made a huge difference in my bug-life.

  3. HAHA...sorry to hear of your spider epidemic!
