    Default Spider Sniffing!

    Anyone done this?

    The art of sniffin a spider is accomplished with a small flashlight, a penlight is fine, held close to the side of the head, or, if it's small enough, right between the eyes. The head-on angle allows you to see the eyes of the spider--actually their retinas--which are two bright diamonds, no four the same.
    We're planning on a spider sniffing outing in a few weeks.

    Yes, and certain other members here--who will not be named--will be especially pleased to see whatever spidey pics I snag.

    *snorts* Yes I'm sure they will. Me, I like spiders and am looking forward to seeing your pics.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I'm looking forward to this too. My old roommate LOVED spiders and had one...I would check everyday upon coming home from work to make sure it was in its tank...since then I've come to not love...but at least appreciate them. Looking forward to the pics.
    for my life is slowed up by thought and the need to understand what I am living.

    Why is she sat on top of what appears the brush attachment for a broom? Has she been doing her housework?

    I console myself with the knowledge that people are just jealous of me.
