Yuk!

There seems to be a giant spider invasion in our house. These are wolf spiders, the big west coast kind, with the big legs... YUK!

We get them every year, but for the last few months there has been hardly any. Now, they are back, three spotted in the last two days. EW YUK!

Anyway, I don't want to think about, as whenever one appears, irrational primordial fear springs up and crawls all over me.
*Shiver*

Edit: I think they might be Hobo spiders. ewwww

Are you the kind of person who just freezes up when they see a spider even when it's dead?

nope, I can handle a dead one. It has to be moving, stop, then look over at me before I freak out.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

This might cure your phobia Snaggy.
