@ladyhana Now THAT could work. But there’s one slight problem…

@dobes @PeteLawler Look. It is not my job to entertain spiders.

@ladyhana Aren’t they! I haven’t seen any this year.

@PSyvret Here we go, @PSyvret. Steve is right. These spiders are our friends. twitter.com/Steve_Lockstep…

This is an interesting idea. What would persuade a huntsman spider to go no further? twitter.com/MicheleS_Aus/s…

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@PSyvret OK, it’s a spider the size of a small horse, but it’s still just a spider.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Have I mentioned that once one crawled across my face. That was particularly annoying.

Here is another photo of a huntsman spider, taken by me on 22 Nov 2015. pic.twitter.com/Qzfi4a7MLE

Yes yes, I know that huntsman spiders are our friends. Your suggestions made in the clear light of day are not welcome.

When I finally woke up properly this morning, the first spider was nowhere to be seen. I still don’t know where it is.

All this time, the first spider sat motionless up by the ceiling. I went to sleep, but only slept fitfully. I felt..twitter.com/i/web/status/9…XS

Eventually, the spider showed signs of being affected. Its movements slowly became unsteady. It wasn’t sure where it was going.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I gave it another spray. I felt really quite bad now.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

The spider was now drenched in poisons. But rather than curl up and die, it decided to scale the wall above the bed to escape!

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I still feel bad about this. This spider had done nothing to deserve capital punishment.

SITREP: Me, standing naked. Spider, sitting on the bed next to the hastily-dropped iPad, and showing no sign of moving any further.

There’s a bunch of fascist vs anti-fascist talking-past-each-other going on, plus another lot recapping the abortion debate.
